Discuss the separate livescoring thread here please!
 
Hello lovely people,
Before the AO I wanted to start a poll to see what you guys think. Did you like having the separate thread for livescoring during DC? Do we want to try it for the AO and see how it goes? Yes? no? Maybe? Please vote and discuss :)

I know I don't post here that often, but I do lurk a here a fair bit, so thought I'd throw in my two cents. A live scoring thread is a good idea, to avoid cluttering up other threads. It would be nice if the first post could have an update on around which post starts a new match, incase someone wants to read about a particular match, assuming that isn't too time consuming to do for the thread starter :angel:

I agree that having one scoring thread instead of separate scoring threads for each slam/season would work out just fine.

Maybe I should clarify, I didn't mean one scoring thread for the whole year, I meant keeping the actual scoring, as in "30-0" and "Andy's staying back too much" separate from the actual event discussion where we post the news, pics, interviews, analysis, schedule, etc. The Marat forum has done it and I've talked to Jiat and she says it works. I think it worked pretty well for DC but since the US won their matches relatively easily and there were only 3 of them, it didn't really get tested too much but I think during slams and other tourneys where Andy's playing every day or two, it gets very hard for people who aren't here for a day or two to catch up on the news and pics within all of the hundreds of livescoring posts.

So we'd still have separate threads for each season, but all of the actual livescoring would be in one thread. Am I making sense? And if this isn't how people understood it, if you want to change your vote now that I have explained it more clearly, just let me know, as we'll decide what to do based on the poll results here by Sunday (US time)

I voted yes just because, on a personal note, I'm not going to follow the matches live at the moment and it's not fun to have to search through all of the "break, Andy!" type posts and stuff to find actual information on how well he is playing and he press conferences and everything. :)

Yes, I vote for a live scoring thread, but perhaps instead of one massive thread, we should consider doing them seasonally as well. Just a thought. :)

I voted based on what you described Deb....I'm all for a Livescoring thread separate from the tourney threads etc...

Yeah, that's another option

alright, cool :)

It looks like it's overwhelmingly in favor of at least trying it for the AO. What i'll do is put the post # in the thread title itself for where each new match starts, should someone get home or wake up after a match and want to "re-live" it, and then those like Jo and others can go to the actual tourney threads to discuss.

After the AO in that off-week before DC, I'll have another poll and see what people think and we can then address whether we want to have just one thread or seasonal ones too.

Sound good?

I don't really post on MTF or around here that much anymore, but I do like the idea. I think it would help alleviate some clutter in the tournament threads as was said already. :)

Well of course as we all know Andy didn't last as long as we were hoping or expecting so we didn't get to try the scoring thread for too long, but what did you guys think? Did it work, not work? Did it make things clearer, or more confusing?

Do we want to keep it all in this thread all season long or do we want to have 'companion' scoring threads for each season?

Don't think it's necessary to start another poll, but if you'd all voice your opinions/thoughts/concerns here (or PM me if you'd prefer), then we can make a decision before Davis Cup. Please post, even if it's just to agree with someone else or something, so we can get a good idea on what the majority feeling is. Thanks all :D

Me wants livescores threads, doesn't have to be for each tornament but as long as we have them I'm okay with it. :p
