Nadal & Federer Argument Forum or Sticky Thread

Well if it's not possible to have a Nadal/Federer Argument Forum, then it is possible to have it as a sticky thread in GM?

Even when they are not directly involved in a GM thread, there is a good chance that that particular thread will end up in a Nadal/Federer debate.

Sure they are the best 2 players at the moment, but GM doesn't stand for Nadal/Federer.

This thread or forum will be the perfect place, to let off steam for both sets of fans and trolls.

At one point, way back in ancient history, the debates in GM used to be about Federer vs Roddick. Well, atleast Federer/Nadal is something worth debating, but I will concur and say that there are too many threads on this topic in GM.

Yes, but there wasn't any doubt about the Federer vs Roddick was there? At times Federer/Nadal can be worth it, but it's as rare as a Gaudio win on grass. So it should be a sticky thread on GM or a seperate section, just to let them go.

I don't understand what are the problems? Federer is Ranked #1 and Nadal is Ranked #2 now. And yes Nadal can beat Federer, but that doesn't change the Ranking. And equal prize money, if the play isn't equal why should the money be equal? I don't see what the big deal is on either of those topics.

The big deal is that those two topics are taking over GM, people are creating new threads for every new article published about the topics that say the exact same thing and it's taking over the board. So let's merge the equal money topics all into one thread and give the Fedtards and Rafatards a place to argue about who's better. Because it's getting really annoying and obnoxious in GM.

You think vcash and vbetting is a big deal and post about it all the time, we think that the inability to have a sensible tennis discussion in a tennis forum is a big deal. :)

What I meant by a "big deal" is I don't know why so many people are posting on those topics? The post I did showed that IMO I don't think there is anything to debate on the two topics mentioned. And even if a place is established for those topics what will keep all the posters posting in that place? GM would have to be watched constantly and every time someone tried to add a thread on those topics it would have to be closed/deleted whatever :shrug:

04-26-2006, 08:31 PM
well i have no clue why people are content to discuss the topics ad nauseum, but I don't thikn the rest of us should have to put up with it if they just don't read what threads currently exist or have the sense to combine topics. it doesn't take "constant watching" to maintain some sort of order there, and in fact there were some fed/nadal threads that were combined today so that was good to see, and obviously it can be done. there are 2 admins and 2 supermoderators, I think that's plenty to watch over MTF to combine unnecessary threads that are all about the same topic. I think it's an important thing at mtf right now b/c GM is reaching intolerable propotions. So GWH started this thread to discuss those issues and that's what we're doing.

The goal of MTF is to have tennis discussion, and that's getting difficult to do there at the moment.

04-27-2006, 12:29 AM
Well you can be sure I'm not going to be talking about either of those topics anywhere. However, I must say I don't agree that 2 Admins and 2 Super Moderators are enough for this Forum. And I'm not saying that the 2 Admins. and 2 Super Moderators aren't doing a very good job because they doing an excellent job. However, I just looked at the membership count before I started to post this and we now have 19,999 members. I know that isn't anywhere near what the WTA has and I'm not suggesting that we need anywhere near the number of people that is needed to manage the WTA, but I do feel the MTF staff could grow a little since the membership is growing. You could probably keep a moderator busy just dealing with GM. :lol: Talk about a position I wouldn't want to have GM could drive someone :crazy:

But the posters that are posting on those subjects think they are discussing tennis. You may not like their discussions and you may wish that they would do them elsewhere. And I think both those topics are "no-brainers"
that don't need to be discussed anywhere. However, not
every poster on the MTF agrees with you, Deb, and I. So we will have to leave it up to the Admin. people on how this is handled ;) I'm sure they will do a good job on working this out :)

You could that, but seriously does every single thing like for example Nadal only had 10 breaths per minute and Federer loses serve doesn't need a new thread.

Concentrate it all within one section, make it a lot easier. Merge thread is your friend.

Oil prices or cesarean birth will go into a Fed/Nadal argument, how even as a cesarean that Nadal was doped up etc etc.

And those threads won't end at least a week after. Then in no time start all over again for Wimbledon, even Nadal won't be such a force there. :sobbing:

Grand slams are like MTF threads they always end in Federer vs. Nadal. :lol: :lol: :lol:

On a serious note the domination of MTF of Federer vs. Nadal mirrors their actual domination of tennis; we are talking extreme domination of tennis by 2 players. Therefore, you would expect a tennis forum to reflect that situation.

To further your analogy of the fact that their domination of tennis has extended to GM, that's like saying either Fed or Rafa will still win tournaments they're not even entered in. :p

I don't know if I support the request - some hopeless morons seem to think that their opinion about Fedtards or moonballs or whatever requires the attention that only a new thread in GM gets, so they will probably start threads outside the Argument Forum and claim it is of general relevance. And what is worse - even possibly interesting discussions are turned into garbage by the usual suspects, so at times like the present all GM threads can be moved into the Argument Forum.

Anyway, maybe an Argument Forum is the only possible way of getting a change. I can't come up with a better idea myself.

So to clarify, many threads about one player still are of a general interest. :) I think it's quite easy to tell when they're not. For example, Federer winning some award is of general interest.

It just seems like a lot of these decisions about what is a "worthy" thread and what is "unworthy" are being made purely on your opinions and by your urging which is what people are reacting to.

GM has been a mess lately, loads of people feel that way. I don't think moving a few threads here and there that really have no purpose except to talk about a very narrow thing where pretty much only fans of that particular player are gonna discuss it is really causing any problems. It's certainly no reflection of worth, so I'm not sure where you got that word from.

Anyone who knows what I do on the Andy forum knows I don't meddle in anything. Everyone knows there are threads in that forum that I absolutely HATE, but I just stay out of them and let people do their own thing. I've never edited a post in the Andy forum and have only ever deleted posts that were first reported to me, and I only close threads that are blatantly trolling or spam. so I'm not sure what kind of awful things I've done on this board to deserve all this vitriol, but whatever.

It's getting worse, though. Just about every thread is polluted with it. It didn't used to be this bad (and it's not because one type of tard is better than the other but I really do believe things went downhill fast when the roasting/haha/peeling/...threads were erased.

scoobs

As far as I recall, it's always impacted other threads in GM and it's hard to tell if it's getting worse than it used to be - it's not for nothing that one of the MTF Laws in that thread is

"The probability that every thread will become about Federer or Nadal approaches 1 with respect to time"

That's at least four years old.

I think the idea that if we create one thread or one subforum for this stuff, that all the little angels on MTF will respect it or that the pollution of other threads will lessen in any way is unlikely to work at all.

We can look at cleaning up threads where it is totally irrelevant more than we do at present when it gets reported though.

Castafiore
10-13-2010, 08:35 AM
Oh, I agree. Some won't respect those rules anyway but in those roasting/peeling/haha thread days, you could at least have a reasonable looking match thread. You always had the haters, the gloaters but the biggest :nonsense: was for those threads and most did respect that.

Maybe it's too late to go back, though. That "one thread to bash" system worked back then and now that so many are used to just spreading it to just about every thread, they won't go back to the old system.

Take the Djokovic def. Ferrer thread. It got snowed under with the same tedious Fedtards vs Rafatards arguments. I reported it, nothing happened. :shrug:

scoobs
10-13-2010, 08:59 AM
I did take a look through that thread and while there is a bit of off-topic sniping, by the time I got to it that had died down and the thread was back on the subject of the match.

It's something I will try and keep a better eye on, though.

Seeing the jungle out there, it can't be an easy task so good luck with it. ;)

Edit: yet another couple of threads taken over by the Fedtards vs Rafatards war. Have the moderators given up on GM or what?

Action Jackson
10-18-2010, 06:00 AM
The problem there is only so much scoobs can do for example. I mean Piggy Roast, Djoko and the Fed threads actually worked for the most part, until a bunch of Serbian Djokovic crybabies didn't get the point of them.

RonE with the pork obsession and soon as Fed lost, then it was concentrated within that thread and not spread out so much to the other threads. I can see why those threads were closed, but it created another problem like the one we have now.

Eden
10-18-2010, 11:46 AM
Somehow I don't think that the roasting threads would work now. Do you seriously expect with some of the people currently posting on GM they would only concentrate on that thread and not opening other threads to write their stuff there?

You can't compare the forum of 2 or 3 years ago with the situation it is now. The humour is completely gone and people only attack each other.
Back in the day "Fedtards" and "Rafatards" seemed to get along most of the time - with some exceptions but I think it's normal on such a huge forum as MTF.

Sometimes I wonder why people feel the need to respond to obviously trolling or rude posts instead of ignoring or reporting them. Make sure that someone who is known for only starting problematic threads won't have the opportunity to do so. I remember back a few years ago that users (Just Cause?) weren't allowed at a certain point to start threads because it was expected where they would go to.

Closing the roasting threads was the stupidest thing that could be done. Whoever was in charge of this should immediately resign as a mod if still there. Had they been open, members could have been instructed to keep it moderate everywhere else. And the best thing: By not clicking them, your soft-hearted soul could easily avoid the whole bashing. Now it all turned into a huge mess. And as Doris said, there's no way you can re-open them now and, all of a sudden, tell the army of trolls to go there. Not gonna work.

any naderina tard war thread is 1000 times better than that retarded chat thread in the nadal fan forum......

at least naderina tardwar participants are open and fight like men openly where everyone from all over the world usually visit the site and take notice of what's going in the forum......no poster there is worried about internet pride.......

this idea of a sub forum is a foolish one because it will only make matters worse and spread the hate even more.......you can never stop enthusiasts from running their mouth......

a sub forum will only generate more interest to fight and the hate vented out in the sub forum is easily carried over to other parts of the forum.......

general messages is the place to discuss the stuff no matter who log in or what they post over there.......weeping and whining over other posters will not make the place better.......

who's stopping anyone from discussing the game?

How does Nadarina work exactly?

The "Nada" part is obviously Nadal, but who does "rina" belong to?
You say Federer?
His name doesn't contain "rina" though :confused:
This is confusing me, Nadal and Federer = Nadarina?
Shouldn't it be Nadarer, then

Perhaps you don't like Fedal because most of the word consists of Federer's name? :haha:

If someone somehow shot this forum right from it's foundations leaving only a couple of Voo stats threads and maybe Gooch's and El Rey's own homage threads I would assure you absolutely nothing would be lost.

More fun would be to have an insta-ban for everyone that mentions either of the two big names in his posts more than once per day. Just imagine the cleansing, the fresh smell of roses that would come out everytime you visit this forum.
