Thanks for your comments and feedback.
I do understand it was disappointing to have the site pulled for many months and so suddenly. I also don't expect everyone to be immediately trusting that the site will still be here tomorrow. Afterall, there has been plenty of dramas recently with both boards. All I can say is it took a LOT of effort to pull the site together again under a new name, after resolving our main legal dispute. Read into that what you will.
There are good points and bad points about separate sites. I think the benefits overall outweigh the drawbacks however. Some of the plus points have been highlighted above by others. The smaller community here allows us to offer you extra features like custom avatars. And other fans of men's tennis are more inclined to join in discussions, when they're not hidden away at the bottom of WTA discussion site.
It costs more, and takes longer to maintain, to provide two separate sites. If we felt one-site-for-all was better then the decision would have been a no-brainer really.
