    Did the Forum have a "Junior" section?
    I have thought it was below
    Adult section
    College section
    Please let me know

    I really liked the junior section can you please put it back up and just ban all the people that were making inappropriate comments?

    It is a needed part of your forum community.

    Ban all the hyping tennis parents of specific kids. Ban the hyping of specific kids. Ban the use of aliases to hype the same kid by the same users. More monitoring of the juniors section so its not always about one kid. Or just keep the whole section out of ttw.

    I want them banned. Was not saying you wished it. The junior section turned into one person dominating the whole forum with rude and crude postings.

    Due to a recent escalation of events in the Junior section of the forum, we are in process of deciding how we want to move forward; both for the health of the forum but also the benefit and well being of the Juniors it is intended to serve.

    Aaron: Just as with most things, 99% of the posters on the junior forum were well behaved and well intended. I learned a lot about junior tennis and have enjoyed the forum. I suggest you ban the offensive and inappropriate posters and
    allow the forum to continue.

    coaching32yrs,

    I will keep this brief, as it has been discussed elsewhere and our moderation methods are not up for debate.

    This section was harboring discussions that led us and others to believe it was creating an unsafe environment because personal information was being posted. Because we cannot IMMEDIATELY remove every single post of this nature, we have disabled the junior section temporarily while we come up with a solution for the greater good.

    We are not willing to compromise the safety of anybody's information just so we can keep this section active.

    We will find a solution and we will keep everyone posted when it happens.

    Aaron

    I'm hoping TW can expedite the process and get the section back up soon. In the event TW can't move quickly on this, I have started the process to replace my current site dedicated to tennis with a junior forum that uses the same platform (vbulletin). It is my preference that TW can get the forum back up soon but I'm not going to sit back and just wait. Either way, tennis wins.
