The OOP & Scores threads were great. You didn't have to venture outside of MTF to find out what the Order of Play for that day was. Like Krystlel said, now it's necessary to go all the way to the ATP website and find the .pdf file for each tournament.

lol let me guess that the person who badrepped you was "its like that" in which case I wouldn't be too worked up about it seeing as he bad reps everyone

That way we would have a strictly moderated live thread (the GM sticky) and a loosely moderated thread for the gamblers, with the benefit of repopulating the tournament forums.

Sounds good. The GM thread was pretty low maintenance and served its purpose. No real downside to keeping it in GM.

Definitely. Some decent activity and no real problems for the moderators to deal with. Would be logical to keep it for future tournaments.

I doubt there are many people aware of it. I mean, I never even so much as glance at the sticky posts, since they are rarely of interest. No wonder there are hardly any posts.

In what forum? I didn't see a thread in GM. Do you mean we're using the WWW threads or we're using a single thread?
