Well GGL isn't too well known.

I think what would make that Forum look better is if they posted threads for each of GGL's Tournaments. But I guess they like things the way they are doing it!

I have no real gripe with any of these players having forums, but there does seem to be something wrong when retired and, perhaps even more egregiously, suspended players have forums but other active and successful players' forum requests are either being ignored or denied for no good reason

Re: Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

A problem that I see when closing a forum would be what to do with this forum. Deleting would be easy, but I mean, the things that got posted there shouldn't get lost.

But he has a FORUM, for crying out loud!!! Santoro, Nieminen? NO. And I don't understand why.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Sorry don't ask me I don't set up the Forums, but I do agree with Neely what is to be done with the Forums that are closed Maybe the MTF would have to establish a section for closed Forums, if this could even be done?

Re: Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

If some of these forums have so few threads they could easily be put into the country forum or whatever.

Mind you I'm not necessarily advocating their closure, I don't see any harm in just letting them stay there inactive and dormant.

What bothers me is that they're allowed to stay there but forums that have a lot of support and would be friendly active forums are getting denied for what are, IMO, illogical reasons.

Re: Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

All I know about Forums is that I love to post in them so I'm in the dark here. But maybe it is just a question of space. With all the players that do have Forums here, how much space is left over to create new Forums?

Re: Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

Don't complain about getting no forum. When I see stupid forum request like SANTORO it is good that admin give no forum because people are only crying for not getting a forum, but they are not active and show support for him because Santoro has almost no posts in French player forum. Maybe 50 in total. And you want a forum, let me laugh now?

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!



Zero tolerance against dopers!

Re: Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

Well not all of the forum requests are like that. The Bryan Brothers thread has over 1000 posts in it and we still can't get a forum, so yes it is a little frustrating when there are forums with 3 threads or for suspended and retired players and we are denied just b/c they are a doubles team.

Re: Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

As long as the forums have active posters there, I don't have problems they stay, no matter the status of the player.

Re: Do the following players really still deserve their own forum?

I agree that retired players should have a section of their own.

As for suspended players, each case should be separatedly analysed. Puerta will likely retire if he can't reduce his sentence and Canas can return this year in case he gets to reduce it. As for Beck, what exactly has he done to deserve an own forum? But since it's already been created, leave it the way it is.

BTW, Adam, I didn't see you asking to have Nadal's forum deleted when he was temporarily off the courts.

Well Santoro got his Forum and the Bryans got their Forum now. And I haven't heard of any Forum being closed/deleted so at least I guess we still have rooms for Forums to be created
