Default Retired Players Forums

Hey everyone.

Just canvassing some opinions here.

As the forum gets older, we have more and more players who have their own subforums who have retired, in some cases several years ago.

Clearly what we need is a separate players section for the legends of the past.

Question is, where do we put it? As a separate subforum of the Players section? In the Blast from the Past section? Somewhere else? Leave them where they are?

Let us know what you think, we'll probably make the change, whatever it is, in the off season.

Thanks

A very interesting "problem", Chris.
I personally would like to see it leave where they are (when it comes to my personal favs ), or perhaps indeed a separate subforum of the players section?

Point is that I think that a lot of fans of said retired players still enjoy discussing with each other where they always have done so, where they know their fellow fans will be around, etc.

The "blast from the past"-section seems a bit 'ded' to me, but maybe that's just my impression.

Whatever you decide, I'm sure you'll try to do your best.

It's a bit strange to see this poll in "Non Tennis" Chris.
Don't you think you would get more feedback in the Site discussion area?

I would like to see the Blast from the Past part of MTF improve so maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to move all the retired players forums over there.
But I could understand it when for example the fans of Safin would like to have the forum of Marat at the place they are used to.

Default Re: Retired Players Forums

this will be tough for me to explain, but I will try:

I suggest they stay where they are but the actual forum will be located in the blast of the past section, so for instance when I go to France from the players subforums, I will find the "Fabrice Santoro Message Board", in the list, but when I click on it I would be re-directed to a subforum within the "blast from the past" section where all the threads related to Fabrice Santoro are

this will make it possible to enter the Fabrice Santoro forum from the "blast from the past" section as well, so when I access the blast from the past section I will see the subforums there at the top of players that can also be accessed from the old route, so there are two ways to go there, this would keep the blast from the past section active as well as not confuse old users of the subforums by re-locating the subforum header elsewhere

also, this way there will be a distinction between players who were active when MTF existed and players who are simply located in the "blast from the past" section because they have long been retired before MTF site was there, I think this would be a good common ground for both sides

I will move it there in a few days, but it's more likely to get noticed first in Non-Tennis

Default Re: Retired Players Forums

in a separate subforum imo

As more and more guys from countries get popular, the subforums will get super crowded, so I'd suggest a 'Retired Players' subforum for the retired guys

Fully agree with Habib, if that's a workable option.

Anything that makes threads easier to find.

I quite like this idea if we can make it work and as long as it helps to reduce the clutter that will build up in country forums due to retired players.

Default Re: Retired Players Forums

I haven't heard anymore about this, but on the off season I have just been looking around at the players forums and I have seen so many where the players are no longer active in any type of tennis. They aren't in Expos. or Seniors/Masters Tournaments--nothing--they are completely out of tennis. But the Forums are still right where they have always been. And, of course, since the players aren't active the Forums aren't active either.
