Mate You really shouldn’t use that title. It’s an insult and a knock off to the original. You should get rid of this thread.

I think a Picture version of Diary of a Racketholic (DOAR) thread is a good idea

I suggest 3 different threads

1) DOAR Picture Edition - just pics of tennis related stuff with minimal or only directly related words - I suggest calling this "Look what I got today..."

2) DOAR Competing Player Edition - for long stories about random rec player about beating other random rec players all trying to attain @JGads high standard of prose and poetry. I suggest calling this - "Diary of a Recreational Tennis Player"

3) DOAR Talk edition - Just talk about stuff and pics that are not tennis related. This can remain "Diary of a Racketholic"

So things in one edition that turn off people can be avoided. For example I would be interested in 1) and a little of 3) (as long as there are no pics of feet and injured body parts) but not in 2)

Im only half serious - so dont attack me if you dont like the idea.

Ill post 1 new photo a day (with specs) for 50 days (from the same exact location) as long as each photo gets 10 likes. If it fails the threshold any one day, it shall stop.

Probably will fail today itself :-D

Well since I got summoned and can't even make a joke about it... this happen:

For science reasons I pulled the PA+'16s and a PA23 from a friend along with my PKs. The PA23 was strung with a multi that gave me nothing but "bleh" and when I restrung with FW 18g it was like it came alive, I am sure any firm string helps with feel with this frame and allows you to take a crack at the ball with consistent results.

There may be some too here that have a hand fetish, so.let me show you how that fence did me wrong when I tried to run a very sharp angle shot and ended up on the fence

Yes I have more than 50 interesting (atleast in my opinion) racquets - I might include some semi interesting stories (again in my opinion)in certains cases as well.

But so far only 3 likes so..... The below is the one that needs to be liked - https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/ind...ketaholic-picture-thread.697239/post-17335095

Otherwise the following meme will become relevant...

As long as it gets back to original intent its all good... The playground insults, the weird pics of feet and especially injured feet, the constant meltdowns are getting a little pathetic and sometimes sickening.

Constant meltdowns? Who are you talking about?

I do have some folks on ignore so I may be missing all this drama.

yeah, me too.

I've been pretty active in that thread for +/- 5 years - nothing like you and PP for longevity - and to be fair there has only been maybe 3 (maybe 4?) meltdowns. It's pretty infrequent and a ton of cool people/content.

Yeah saying there are constant meltdowns there seemed off to me, but I have cleaned up my feed a little so I thought missed some of them.
