Sticky in GM for livestreams?

Could we get that?

Now tips about livestreams are spread everywhere and don't reach the people.

I think many posters would appreciate to have a sticky

Wouldn't be a big problem if more members want to see that. We just need to be careful not to end up with half a first page of stickies in the future.

Re: Sticky in GM for livestreams?

I fully support the idea of making a sticky Livestream-thread. I've currently seen requests (and answers) for livestreams posted throughout the whole of MTF - in the scoring threads, in gambling threads, in the players' cheering threads as well as in GM so I think it would be a nice idea as in that case everybody would immediately know where to look for them.

Good idea. Too many new threads have been started for this, and not just in GM.

Regarding the existing sticky threads in GM, I think one or two of them are unnecessary. The Updated Rankings thread and ATP Race to Shanghai could be merged. Also the request for bloggers isn't important.

I proposed this idea a while ago when I still was a GM mod, the problem is that a few of these livestreams infringe copyright laws so we figured that maybe giving too much exposure to such threads could cause the site a few problems in the future.

Ah yes, I understand this might indeed be a problem. Thanks for the explanation. Too bad...

Re: Sticky in GM for livestreams?

Considering WTAWorld's issues lately, I'd advise against making the livestreams any more conspicuous than they currently are
