Mods, in general I really think you are doing a fine job. The board is well organized, in my opinion too well. I would like to see less forums and sub forums ... the board is getting too complicated and it does need to be simplified. e.i. we have the off topic forum, sort of within GM, then we have 'the non tennis' forum... what is the difference? they should be merged or just leave the 'off topic' forum, everyone knows what it is (talk about whatever that is non tennis related or close to it ... Fed/Mirka love one another or Nole buying donkey cheese, Murray needs a better dentist kinda thing, lol). sorry, just my 5 cents, try to simplify things ... get rid of some sub forums ... I've been around on MTF for a while, and know where everything is, but new members probably will feel a bit lost.
Also, it would be probably easier for mods too, less time consuming etc.
I think the distinction is clear. Off topic is general debate about tennis players' non-tennis activities, ergo relating to tennis players
but not tennis
per se. Non-tennis is then everything not at all related to tennis or tennis players.
I would prefer these two to stay separate. They are also quite big, and merging big subforums is not something I'd recommend. New posters can find lots of goodies more than a year old there, if they're into such stuff, a lot easier than in the archives.
I think the structure of the forum is great, only change I'd make would be to wait a little longer before archiving threads in the smaller subforums, like the statistics section.
