Locked Hahaha threads.

So will the threads where we laugh when a top player lose be unlocked?

There was no real harm in them, pretty funny and I believe the locking of these threads actually rewards those who were causing problem in them in the first place.

In a way, this is giving in to terrorism. It would be a lot more work, but a lot more fair to give red cards to those who go in these threads to be disruptive.

For RagingMod it is a too big problem to jump over.

Re: Locked Hahaha threads.

Can I start a roasting thread for Murray in GM when he loses? I've picked out the perfect thread title. Please, huh, please???

Re: Locked Hahaha threads.

It's been decided that the Hahaha threads, and any along the same lines, both old and any newly created, will be closed.

The reasoning behind this is that, while in some cases, they operate in a humorous and issue-free manner, in other cases the tone of posting from both the roaster and fan perspective is much more antagonistic and leads to far too much bad feeling. Since it would be unfair to introduce a double standard and say that some players can have roasting threads and others can't, the decision has been made to close them all.

I realise this decision will not find much popularity in some quarters, but hopefully it will also remove some of the unnecessary baiting and provocation that goes on in GM.

Re: Locked Hahaha threads.

I think it'll just move them to the match threads, but maybe that's just me.

Re: Locked Hahaha threads.

This is what will happen, Claire, but in the match threads it will be less funny, because some random fans who open the match threads, will treat it too seriously.

Exactly and this will be even more antagonistic.

It's a dumb move IMO.
You're not really expecting the haha celebrations to stop, are you? It's better to try and keep that all contained to one thread instead of polluting the match threads,... with it.

Re: Locked Hahaha threads.

Now I am going to ask *seriously*, are you mods power hungry these days? Why someone deleted a thread where a poster asked about tournament facilities in a tournament forum? Look to what patologies it leads (thread title I mean; very unnecessary havoc created). Following this way of thinking my old thread "How do I get from Arlanda Airport to the centre of Stockholm" would be also deleted. IMO people who attend events are allowed to know such information on a fooking TENNIS FORUM.

That only happens with the Fakertards over his roasting thread. Their whining has ruined everyone's fun.

I checked and the thread was not deleted, it was merged with the Who's going thread, which makes sense I guess, but perhaps a redirect should have been left for the original thread, they are there for a reason.

Re: Locked Hahaha threads.

It appears that a lot of posters could not police themselves and show restraint. Which is too bad because on the whole those were fun threads.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.
