Redesign

Steve

Probably sometime next week there will be a redesign of MTF and WTA. This skin will still be available as an option. There will also be a VB upgrade so it "better" fix these bugs.
In order to prepare you for the upgrade I will tell you now that there will be a few more ad positions. Primarily down the right side. As many of you know running a forum of this size is not cheap and VS has been paying each month out of their own pockets. Its time for them to recoup some of that money or at least break even at the end of each month. Once we roll out the redesign we will be launching the premium membership accounts as well. Im still waiting to find out what these accounts will offer. Shortly after that the blogs on tennisuniverse will be fixed and running properly with some new bloggers :)

Any questions?

Any questions?

No. It's fair to have more ads! :yeah:

Hmm, you never tried to get some kind of help from ITF or ATP? This is easily the biggest tennis board in the internet and I think MTF is a big supporter of tennis. Probably one of the ten biggest supports of tennis in the whole world. They should support you, because MTF helps a lot tennis to be recognized more!

:worship: :worship: :worship:

Denaon
05-04-2007, 06:02 PM
So will you pay for premium membership?

How many other active members are here?? Over 10,000? Well they can pay ....and meanwhile I enjoy the site :yeah:

Well I never got back in WTAWorld as a member like I did here, but I guess I can look at the site. And see what I think about the redesign. I just took a look at WTAWorld and it looks great to me. I'm just glad we have the color blue here :)

Well I never had an Avatar the brief time I was in WTAWorld. And I didn't go into any of the Forums I just looked at the front of the site which looked fine to me. Oh well there is nothing we can do about it anyway :sad:

16681
05-11-2007, 09:45 PM
Wow a lifetime membership at a very reasonable rate :eek: Perhaps MTF is going to get more money out of me yet :unsure: I still never looked inside one of the forums--I was too surprise at the lifetime membership :lol:

Not here yet but it's in WTAWorld. If you have an account in WTAWorld. Click user profile and then paid subscription.

I made the assumption that the amount will be the same here as it is at WTAWorld, but maybe I shouldn't make assumptions :unsure: Anyway it sounds like we have posters that are interested in paying right now :)

I don't think WTAWorld looks bad at all. The color isn't my favorite there, but we will still have blue here. It will be all right ;)

But does anyone know how many hours or days will MTF be unavailable?my guess is that it's about the same as WTAW probably. So give or take 6 hours....

16681

That I don't know. I hope not too long. May be someone that is a member at WTAWorld can let us know how long it took there :unsure: And it may be a shorter time here since MTF isn't as big as WTAWorld. I just wish we could get it done so people can actually see it rather than worry about what it is going to be like.

Please give posters the option to upgrade to a membership that doesn't include ads. That's the reason I upgraded initially. The WTA upgrade doesn't come with any significant perks....

Of course the first thing I noticed was no extra V-Cash :lol: The ads don't bother me ;)
But I think with the exception of color the redesign is going to be the same as WTAWorld :unsure:

well according to Milan, on WTAW there is only the ad at the top of the page for mods/premium....so it would be great if we did the same here:angel:

but is he on the new skin or old skin?? old skin doesnt have ads on the right side. Steve said that 50% less ads for premium isnt happening :shrug: i can live with it :p

I haven't had ads for close to a year, not sure why, I don't think I took any preventive measures. Not that I'm complaining. :lol:

I'm a premium member @ WTAWorld, do I have to pay for Premium Membership too :wavey:

Yes as I believe in this case MTF and WTAworld are considered as 'separate entities'.

I just want to know why you are forcing us to use 96 x 96 avatars? they are tiny! ther is no positives in this.

How can I pay the $25 to be a member for life, and if I pay that is it imposible to be banned?

It's really not that hard to not be banned from MTF. I mean, really, minimal respect for others should not be that hard. It clearly is for a lot of people who post here, but honestly, come on. If you're going to pay, do you really need to be worrying about whether you will lose your money if you get banned? Getting banned or not is in your own power, so if you pay, just make sure you don't get banned. Pretty simple really :)

Buying a premium membership does not exempt you from obeying the rules of the site.

But if you love the site and want to help support the ongoing costs of development, infrastructure investment and enhancements being made, becoming a premium member is a great way to help support the cause. And very warmly appreciated by everyone.

By making bad gambler and Carlita Admins (which I generally think is fine), does that mean they can read our PMs and stuff :unsure:, or is that an extremely restricted privilege?

Nobody can read your PMs on the site. No such privileges exist.

wtn_amanda
05-24-2007, 08:43 AM
It's technically possible if anything illegal is going on. But none of us (admins/supermods/mods) have access to your PMs. It would have to be done by someone higher up in the chain co-operating with law enforcement for example.

How do I change the 'PREMIUM MEMBER' title beneath my username? [or is that option only availble once I have reached a certain amount of posts?]

That's very bizarre - if you paid to be a premium member, which that silver thing under your name suggests that you did, you should have that option :scratch:

It's not from needing a certain number of posts - it's from being a premium member. Well, maybe Steve or Amanda can come explain to you b/c I'm stumped.

I don't think my upgrade took because I don't see a transaction at PayPal or on my banking site. Maybe I just haven't given it enough time yet :shrug:

Transactions usually take a couple days to show up with your bank..... that said, you don't have the gray premium member thing under your name so perhaps it didn't actually work. Also, they usually show up pretty fast on paypal itself.

Do you have any idea as to how fast they show up on paypal? I can't remember from my last upgrade and since that was sometime back things could have changed. I'm afraid to try again because I could end up with two upgraded memberships :eek: That would be just my luck :lol: Dumb me :banghead: I didn't complete all of the transaction so of course it didn't work :silly:

It could take paypal up to 14 days. but thats not normal. It all depends on how you pay through paypal. e-checks take the longest

I've only ever had things show up immediately on paypal - maybe the money isn't taken immediately, but the transaction shows up as existing.

Yep dummy me I didn't complete the transaction so of course it wasn't there :banghead: :smash: :retard: :help:
