Re: Discuss the separate livescoring thread here please!

I like the live scoring thread, it kept the tournament thread much 'cleaner'.

But really Deb, why did you even ask. You know we're all just sheep and we do whatever you say. I don't even get dressed in the morning without calling you. This poll was just window dressing right?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Discuss the separate livescoring thread here please!

I agree. Even though we didn't get to try it out for very long it worked well and made it much easier to find whatever it was I wanted to find! and since the post number is in the title for each match, I think just keeping the one scoring thread is enough.

It turns out this scoring thread is very short. Andy

Re: Discuss the separate livescoring thread here please!

I like having the scoring thread, makes the other one easier to navigate. One scoring thread is fine with me

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light

Re: Discuss the separate livescoring thread here please!

OK since there hasn't been any further discussion on this in over a week, I'm going to assume that people's opinions haven't changed, so we'll go ahead and have our 2008 Scoring thread. I will update the first post for each match with the post # where the next match will start and I will also edit the first post and keep a running list of each match too, so at any time people can find a particular match, should they want to.

I know that right before/after a match it's a little weird/confusing to know, when do we move to the live scoring thread, when do we move back to the tourney thread, etc. So how about to make it easier, we literally have the scoring thread for scores only. So right until the players come on court, stay in the tourney thread and right after match point, go back to the tourney thread, and I think that should work and alleviate some of the confusion.

I'll unstick this but if anyone has anything else to add, speak up

I agree that that is a little bit confusing. I think scores only is good, but does that include discussion during the match about how well he is playing and stuff as well, or just actual scores?

Re: Discuss the separate livescoring thread here please!

During matches you can discuss it all in the scoring thread. When the match's over, you go back to the thread itself and discuss how good/bad he was etc again.
