NEWBIES PLEASE READ FIRST!!
« on: May 15, 2015, 07:11:52 AM »
Hi all-

I'm back, and felt that we need a catch-all thread for regulations, questions and non-match discussions. So here it is! I will try to keep this among the first one or two topics ALWAYS, so Newbies can read it.

Here are the off-my-cuff instructions for this forum:

1) Posting a new topic is ONLY done when you include a match in your topic
2) Requests for matches not covered in topics already on the forum should be done in the REQUESTS thread. If there is a topic covering the match you want, ask in that topic!
3) You cannot post a link until you have FIVE posts on the forum (helps prevent SPAM)
4) Request matches anyone posts in their thread if the link is broken or no link is listed (as in my sdede thread)
5) Sticky topics are tournaments and not individual's matches
6) Grand slams remain sticky for three months after last post
7) All other tournaments remain sticky for two months after last post
8) If you don't see it, SEARCH for it before asking; saves all of our time
9) This thread *is* for asking general questions, and NOT for asking about matches. Any requests for matches here will be moved to the REQUESTS thread.
10) (someone asked): All of the "tennis novice, tennis master, tennis god..." just count the amount of posts you have... that's all!
11) I do not have any subscriptions for T3nnis.tv. The thread is there for your convenience but does not in any way mean you will get a subscription! Also - do not share any videos received from t3nnis.tv here. Thank you!

PLEASE - share your links with us as we are sharing our links with you! However only share DIRECT links, and not torrents or other links that need subscription in order to download.

PLEASE do not ask several times for the same match! I have not gotten to your match b/c of one or more of several reasons:

1) Am downloading a tourney, which always takes precedence
2) I'm busy at work, which always takes precedence
3) I'm on vacation (doesn't happen THAT often...)
4) .... I forgot...  :whistle: but remind me after a month or so, not after a week, OK?  :))

And last (for now) but certainly not least:

We are all human and make mistakes or omissions, or don't have enough time to do what we wanted to do, etc, etc. Forgive and respect the other! No flaming!

Thanks everyone! ENJOY!!!!

I added the following to the instructions, and realized that no one will see it if I don't add it as a new reply:

Welcome! If the match is current, ask in the match thread. If the match has a topic, even though it's old, you can always Reply in topic. If those two fail, the REQUESTS topic is where you should ask (as you've done).

My answering REQUESTS ... hmm... are not always timely :whistle: ... done as I have time. Patience is a virtue and all...

I have added this to the first post, as many people ask me from time to time:

I do not have any subscriptions for T3nnis.tv. The thread is there for your convenience but does not in any way mean you will get a subscription! Also - do not share any videos received from t3nnis.tv here. Thank you!

I have added this to the first post, as an explanation...

PLEASE do not ask several times for the same match! I have not gotten to your match b/c of one or more of several reasons:

1) Am downloading a tourney, which always takes precedence
2) I'm busy at work, which always takes precedence
3) I'm on vacation (doesn't happen THAT often...)
4) .... I forgot...  :whistle: but remind me after a month or so, not after a week, OK?  :))

We have a semi-professional agreement with the t3nnis.tv website in that we do not post matches downloaded from their website.

This helps the integrity of their website, and allows us to offer free subscriptions to them, when available, to our members.

Please do not abuse this.

I understand that "banning" a poster doesn't really help; however, I can easily delete each post.

Thanks all.
