In what forum? I didn't see a thread in GM. Do you mean we're using the WWW threads or we're using a single thread?

I doubt there are many people aware of it. I mean, I never even so much as glance at the sticky posts, since they are rarely of interest. No wonder there are hardly any posts.

Re: Live match threads in GM

The live match trial thread looks to be a success.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Not really. The daily "OOP & Scores" threads in the tournament forums used to have around 1000 posts per day.

People flatout stopped posting in those threads.

Definitely. Some decent activity and no real problems for the moderators to deal with. Would be logical to keep it for future tournaments.

Re: Live match threads in GM

IMO Livescores threads should be created in GM and not trial only. Few days ago I was badreped by a gambler for writing in their forum and another one advised us today to get out of GL Livescores Livescores (July 2009)

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Re: Live match threads in GM

I agree, it's been a success. My suggestion would be to keep the live match thread in GM and moving the livescores thread from the Gamblers Lounge back to the tournament forums.

That way we would have a strictly moderated live thread (the GM sticky) and a loosely moderated thread for the gamblers, with the benefit of repopulating the tournament forums.

Sounds good. The GM thread was pretty low maintenance and served its purpose. No real downside to keeping it in GM.

I don't have a problem with that suggestion however is there really any need to do that? You would still have two livescore threads running in parallel just one would be in the tournament forum instead of the GL. We've pretty much established that the tournament forum is used for games and main draw info these days anyway.

lol let me guess that the person who badrepped you was "its like that" in which case I wouldn't be too worked up about it seeing as he bad reps everyone

The OOP & Scores threads were great. You didn't have to venture outside of MTF to find out what the Order of Play for that day was. Like Krystlel said, now it's necessary to go all the way to the ATP website and find the .pdf file for each tournament.
