Re: Ask MTF Mods

Leave out the mental health stuff lads, not cool.

Nobody is given special exemptions or immune to the rules. You guys have to give us a hand and report clear rule breakers around the forum, whoever they are.

No, but they will be treated in an equal way if that is the case. BUT: STOP REPORTING IT HERE AND USE THE REPORT OPTION UNDER THE POST ITSELF.


Anyone who will keep complaining in this thread about x or y or z not getting infractions or some thread not being closed, etc WITHOUT ACTUALLY USING THE REPORT FEATURE ON IT will be ignored.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

What's the need to have a GOAT discussion thread (in which was posted today) and an own thread with Agassi's statement that he ranks Nadal ahead of Federer in the GOAT debate?

Seems okay as a thread on its own. It's quite a big statement from a big name in the Tennis World and probably deserves a thread of it's own, at least for now. The GOAT discussion thread exists largely but not exclusively as a place for us to share and discuss our own opinions on the debate.

I don't see the difference in both kind of threads as you find the same kind of arguments in them but thanks for answering

Hah, yeah I can't argue with that. It's just more focused on Agassi's opinion than our own, even though many members can't help but remind us what their opinions are.

Sure, no problem.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

I agree with Doris. It's the same sort of tard-fight in the old GOAT debate. It may have started with that controversial quote by Agassi but at this point, it's just back at the old routine.
Why not merge it with the original GOAT thread and mention in the title where the recent Agassi debate starts by adding the post number?

***

Question: In this thread, one of the moderators states that the moderating team has come up with a clearer definition of "player bashing" and he adds: "moderators will be stricter in clamping down on attacks against any player going forward".

Judging by the state of GM and seeing no difference at all, I'm wondering about this clearer definition but I can only find vague descriptions so I'm assuming that I'm overlooking the new and improved definition. Can some kind soul post the definition in here please?

The story here is that there were a few complaints regarding our use of the player bashing rule, with forumers not understanding what is acceptable and what isn't when it comes to criticising players, and pointing out that there isn't any information on it in the site rules. So we added a short definition which you'll find in there. That is: "Insulting players or using derogatory terms/nicknames to attack them. e.g trash, disgusting human being etc."

Yes, I realise there are still tons of people making insults around the forum and breaking this rule. Unlike most of the other rules, since there's so many insults flying around aimed at various players (then retaliations etc etc), it will be a gradual process of eliminating this stuff, but there should be no excuses now that they've been clearly informed that it won't be acceptable.

You guys can give us a hand as well by reporting people (people from your own fanbase as well by the way, since most reports are just etched with bias) when they clearly break this rule.

Agassi is entitled to say and think what he wants.

I just find it strange that in former times threads with posts regarding the GOAT debate were posted in the GOAT debating threads.

So I just wanted to ask why this thread wasn't merged like it happened in the past.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

GOAT debate thread should be locked anyway. There is no GOAT.
