For real m8? If there is no GOAT thread, there will so many threads coming up about the same shit, might as well keep all the discussion in one thread where they can discuss about it. It will will be much better for the forum. Everyone like to discuss about it, some people think there is a GOAT, some like you don't. Its just personal opinion. However just because you don't think there is one, doesn't mean you can't allow others that think there is one to discuss about this. You have been saying that there is no GOAT so many times and its quite annoying, stop trying to make your opinion like its a fact.

I do sometimes report posts when I see mindless insults but the result is quite irregular, probably depending on the moderator that's online at the time and the bias of that particular mod. So, a clear definition of what the current team of moderators view as acceptable or not would be appreciated.

Can't GM kept a bit more clean and threads being merged together or being moved to the players forums?

For example:

What's the need for an own thread with a statement of Rafa before the match against Murray when there is already a WWW thread?

I doubt that different discussions will happen in both of these threads

GM is kept as clean as possible. As the busiest forum, many threads are created during certain times of the day, especially after a big match/result, and it's often a case that some threads that should be deleted or merged can be missed. Mods aren't always available to check every thread being created in GM as soon as they're created, and threads don't go through a process of approval, so some may stick around for some time before they're dealt with.

The various reports are being dealt with as we speak, and I believe Litotes has merged that thread you're referring to now.

'lo Mods. Wanted to ask you something.
Some posts on the TT Singles Ranking Thread were deleted, may I ask you why.
I know one of mine was, despite it being -quite obviously- harmless.
I congratulated the new #1, with just a minuscule joke (our beloved vulture meme with obvious, safety " " ) and I really cannot see why it got deleted. Same for MachineGun's (albeit I can't quote his posts from memory).

Thanks folks

Such informational threads are is not the best ones for jokes, it is better if the ranking posts are not spaced too far from each other.

Why did mods merge my thread about who will make it to the QF with the thread asking who will get to the SF?

They're two completely different questions, as mine is actually quite hard to decide while the other question has Murray as a complete fave. It's also way too early to predict who will make the semis, but for my thread only 10 players can still make the quarters from that section.

This is especially annoying because I explained this in my post, yet it was completely ignored.

The question in your thread title was "Who Will Come Out of the 3rd Quarter?". Fog and Murray, for example, are in the same quarter so it didn't make sense to leave Murray out of it. Besides, 3rd quarter is Fed's quarter, not Wawrinka's, so again it didn't make much sense. And last, but not least, even if you correctly asked "Who will come out of the 3rd eighth?" it would only clog up the GM as it's pretty similar to the thread yours was merged with. We don't really need threads about who will make it out of every eighth, quarter, who'll reach the final, etc.
So I pretty much did you a favour by not deleting it, but only merging it. No need to mention it.

Allow me to rephrase, I was asking who from Wawrinka's section will reach the quarters.

You knew that too, so don't act so clueless.

You must be joking... There isn't one for every section, and I made one for this one because it's the only one that's actually open. I've already explained that this is completely different from the thread you merged it with because it's WIDE OPEN while whoever reaches the semis is not open (Murray is a big fave).

By your logic that's bolded, the thread you merged it with should be deleted.

I was going for something like this thread: http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...annarino+brown Which is pretty much exactly the same and wasn't deleted.

Thanks for your completely unbiased modding.

Irrelevant. What I saw was a misleading title, and a poll asking who will come out of the quarter, not reach the QF - with only difference with the other thread being that your poll was missing Murray. And as I said, having threads about who will reach the QF, even if you had worded it correctly, together with the thread about who will get to the SF from the same quarter is not really needed.
In the other thread you could've just posted, as well as anyone else, "Murray should really get to the SF, probably by beating [Enter Opponent] in the QF."
Not that hard, no?

Enough about how I worded it, as THAT is what's irrelevant not what I said.

Yes, people can post that, but if it's about who will reach the semis then chances are they won't post who they will play in the quarters, will they?

Dude, seriously, shut up. This just goes to show that you have no intentions of modding fairly, and it all just depends on whether you like the poster or not. Also, why put permaban in quotes? You're clearly just trying to provoke me, and it's quite childish. You've gotten away with so much shit, so I wouldn't be talking smack about bans.

Maybe they will, maybe they won't.
No point in me repeating my arguments over and over again. Your thread was deservedly merged, end of discussion.

Absolutely incorrect. This thread being merged had nothing to do with who started it.
Permaban was in quotes because you were actually permabanned - which would mean permanently, no coming back - and yet, here you are.

Anyway, this thread is for constructive questions and discussions, so I'll ask you to PM me if you have any other questions or thoughts about what was said.
