To avoid useless "fights", the best way is not to response. So this is the last time I am responding to your posts. But I would suggest you to have a little bit more sense of humour and don't take every posts too seriously. Especially tangy's

That's why some posters mentioned the information here to let Steve knows that the forums' activities would pick up once the players return to active status.

We know more about tennis than Steve, he freely admits this, so I see nothing wrong or argumentative about us helping him decide which ones are actually inactive enough to close. What Lee is saying is that there are some player forums like Canas's or Guga's that may not be active RIGHT NOW but when these players become more active, the forums will increase in activity as such. If we didn't tell Steve about this, maybe he wouldn't know and he'd close the forums. I haven't seen one suggestion from someone in here just stating their opinion about some forum not being good enough or whatever, no one has said anything out of dislike for a particular player or anything, so I fail to see how this is going to turn into a fight.

And I think it might be a little naive to think that, regardless of what the thread title is, if Steve mentions in his post player forums being closed, that people are not also gonna talk about that.

My gosh.

So if Steve followed the suggestions here, he would be considering to delete the following players forums:

- Ljubicic
- Berdych
- Canas
- Lapentti
- Kuerten

All of them had posts in the last 24 hours.

I hardly ever fight, so thats not a risk.

I never mentioned Tangy, or that thread...

If thats the case, Steve should tell what are the message boards with not enough activity, and then the posters could start to discuss about the reasons for that, and if it is temporary or simply not enough people care about that player.

But starting an open discussion on what forums should be closed, without knowing the activity of the forums its ridiculous. I know you have good intentions, but it would make this thread a mess.

That's not the point, if his forum was inactive, then I wouldn't have a problem with it being closed.

Maybe a forum for retired players would be a good idea though.

I think everyone, even Steve, knows that Tangy is not serious in her suggestions to close the Berdych and Ljubicic forums. As for the other three, I don't think they should be closed, but I can reasonably see why they were brought up

Plus there haven't even been that many viable suggestions for new forums..... Querrey, Malisse, Calleri, Oli Rochus, Italians in general....

Maybe, maybe not.

Any forum can be brought up, but if people want to have a serious discussion, maybe they should look before if the forum is active or not. If not, the discussion will be nowhere near productive. That's my point.

I have no intention of closing a forum based on assumptions. We are all here together so we can definately work someething out. I can provide stats to each forum... ie. page views, posts, forum activity etc etc So I will get those then we have to look ahead... was the player injured the past feew weeks? Will it get busy again based upon upcoming events? Etc Etc
Dont worry about forums closing for the time being, who knows, maybe none will but we have to organize the requests and we cant keep have spuratic forums pop up everywhere. So lets talk about what new ones are needed and we will organise things from there.
