now that VR has merged with the offical site can anyone recommend another good fan site? or does anyone know where VR regulars have switched to?

rafa's official site is pretty lame, and the banter on the VR forums were so much fun - i feel lost without my VR buddies!!!!! :sad:

Try vamosbrigade.com.
Ex-mods of VR.com are there.

Have fun. :)

Yes. From what I can tell all the ENERGY and EXPERTISE is now at www.vamosbrigade.com
It's definitely the best alternative.

Thank GOD! The official message board will never be able to replace the wondrous frivolty of the ex-vamosrafael one :worship:

Rafa's official site is a mess, indeed.

I'm sorry but i always found the people on the vr boards really rude and unwilling to accept new people, i was one of the original memebers and i felt like if i didnt post every 5 minutes no one would respond to me, if u are looking for a new site you should just start your own...sorry about my rants

Thank you so much ! I missed VR soooo much !!! (In fact, over all the billions of photos... The official site is so empty)

In fact, I only went there to drool at pretty Rafa pics! :D

I don't know whether the people over there were actually unwilling to accept new people, but I think I get what you mean... also, there always seemed to be quite a high percentage of very young fans talking about Rafa's love life - including the incidental Xisca bashing - rather than his assets, and I can't really appreciate that. So I've never posted there, just lurking.
Even more, I've always feared to get bashed over there when people find out I'm actually a fan of Rogi as well! ;)

But in any way, both the vr board and the new one seem to take care of their job a lot better than the official site... all too PR-driven to me.

I'm really sorry you felt bad on vr...
I don't post in every thread of the English section, and, Claybuster: yes, there is quite a high percentage of very young fans talking about Rafa's love life, and I don't like it too, but you just have to not read these threads -the gf one, the hot body one, etc.- (maybe you could only see and save the pics) and there isn't any problem....
I feel good on vb now and I felt good on vr too (I am there since the beginning of 2005).... maybe I can advice you to introduce yourself in the your own language section, if it isn't English, because those sections are a lot smaller and you can begin to know some people there, before than in the English section..... :)

I completely share this opinion :yeah: the thing that annoyed me is that vamosrafael creators tought that they would be considered as the OFFICIAL website, and they behaved with other people as if they were more powerful than us.For example ,once i've posted something i found on youtube, and the next hour i had a mail in my box telling me that it was an exclusivity for vamosrafael and that i didn't have to post it.I find it very stupid, there is no money to make about a video so what?
Thank God there is a new official site, a REAL official site to clear the situation!!!

Sorry if you thought it was stupid (after all, I was the one to blame for the PM ... really, I didn't mean to offend you at all!). But ...

here is a thread where someone (I think mallorn) asked

http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=72132

to record the documentary, and no one replied. Since I am lucky enough to have a friend in Spain with that channel, so I asked her. And why shouldn't those who managed to get it first see it first? ;) It's not about money and all, it's just that no one on here seemed to care about getting/recording that documentary, which is why I thought it was a bit unfair to us who got our hands on it frst ... :rolleyes: But that's just my opinion. ;)

Aaaaaaaaaanyway, I am happy about VB.com as well. Nifty folks there (okay, some posts are getting on my nerves as well ... *cough*), cool atmosphere, so yeah. RN.com ain't that bad, and I know some people there who once left VR.com, but I prefer hanging out at VB. ;)

i hadn't been offended, but it just a fan site, there are things much more important than a video of Rafa :shrug:

well it's ok :wavey:

It was only a matter of time before that website got shutdown.

I have to say I quite enjoyed it when it was failing :cool: ,the owners and moderators of the website got what was coming to them!

Vamos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Indeed. What a pity, no? :devil:

Thanks for all the advice, BTW. Indeed, I should just skip those obtrusive stalker-posts and just go for the more sane discussions... and for the pretty pics, of course...! :angel:
