^i can see it in people's public profiles if they have volunteered to display this info. but otherwise there is no way.
Hug it out as long as it takes, people

things were created to be used.
The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used."

Yesterday I opened a thread called "Potential early upsets RG" (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=272570). After several posts, it was closed. Could a moderator let me know why it was closed? (I'm assuming it's because draws are not out yet, but the intent was just to base predictions off of recent form)
Why is my "Which vulture will go farthest in Roland Garros" Thread not there anymore? To be honest, it wasn't a trolling thread. I was asking legit questions. I got a whole load of good-reps for it too.
Is it because I have to wait until the draw comes out to make such threads? If so, could it be reopened at that time? I don't want to do the whole thing again.

The only way something can have no consequences is if it has no effect. The only way something can have no effect is if it doesn't exist. It's completely paradoxical, therefore, to claim that something can exist and simultaneously have no effect.
People are not "free" to express an opinion. Instead, if they choose to express anything, they choose to pay the price. The price is the effect on others and the effect on the person. There is no free lunch in this world.
(3) Make sure the thread you are about to start is worthy of discussion and is related to tennis. The fact that this forum is called "General Messages" does not mean that anything goes here.
(ii) Do not start threads with the sole intention of bashing a player. E.g. "player X is a loser", or "player Y is a choker", or "I hate player Z". Conversely, threads made solely to praise your favorite player (e.g. "I love player X”, “Player Y is the best ever”) are better fit for the player's own forum.
