I know, I was just being sarcastic I really think a forum for all the retired players that still have semi-active forums is an excellent idea.

Spaniards Costa and Corretja have retired and I don't think there was ever much activity in these forums. Also South Americans Lapentti and Canas are getting old and there's not much activity. These 4 forums could be removed.

I can't believe Rochus doesn't have a forum. He seems to be one of the most popular players.

Cañas forum is alive. He has been in a long suspension, but he is back and his fans are also back posting. That message board has new posts every day.

Yes indeed Go Willy Besides I thought Steve was going to make the decisions on the Forums to be closed and that he was just asking for input on what new players posters wanted Forums for

I suggest combining the Costa and Corretja forums into one and then moving it to the retired players forum Lee suggested. Lapentti is still playing, didn't he win a challenger a few weeks ago? And I know Willy won one about a month ago so I think those should stay put at least until the next vote in 4 months.

I think Nicolas Almagro and Julien Benneteau deserve forums.

I like Lee's idea of putting the retired players in one Forum. But I'm not sure how that gives MTF additional space for new Forums Isn't that just moving Forums from one area to another area?

What do results have to do with anything???

A player deserves a forum if he has posters who want to "talk" about them. (of course there usually are more posters if there are positive results)

I invite you to visit Cañas message board, you will see it has new posts every day. There are many posters who are following his comeback.

And this thread is for asking for new players forums... not to say which have to be closed

I would like a forum for Agustín Calleri.

If you read Steve's post carefully, you will see he mentioned closing inactive forums too.

But he didn't ask for posters to tell the ones that should be closed. Thats just wrong.

Over the next 7 days post your suggestions in here. Afterwards I will set up a poll and we will run votes. Once we come up with the list of new players forums we will add them and then there will be no player forums for 4 months, at which point we will do this all over again. We will come up with a schedule for these "elections"
I will also go through all the current forums and find out which ones are lacking activity.Those will be removed to make space for the new forums.
Please do not make this a conversation thread. it is here for suggestions and if at the end of 7 days there are 3.6 million posts of "bla bla bla" I will probably miss some suggestions.

I had also made a comment about this in post #23 of this thread. Steve did clearly say that he was going to be looking at the Forums to see which ones were lacking activity. And believe me I'm more than happy to let Steve decide which Forums should be closed. That's a job I wouldn't want.
