Where are the RF.COM Royalty?!!

Post by Lil_Jay on Mon Jan 23, 2017 8:33 pm

Guys,

I know nothing lasts forever but I for one have been completely caught off-guard by the removal of the forum on rf.com. That was a place for everybody to discuss many matches, schedules and appearances wherever the Maestro may be. It was a journey alongside the great man which was especially worthwhile because of the community.

I can't replicate the real thing but I was hoping to be proactive and round up some of the troops on here, to discuss where we could make our home, if not here. The forum interaction was built on a foundation of over 10years and the decision to swipe it from us was such a strange one by his team. Community never gets old. Very Happy

Calling all fans; WCR, Vinny, Rosaline...everybody, please sign up when you can or atleast direct me to where everyone is at....twitter is not the same!!

Very Happy Very Happy

Hi ! I'm thankful that you set up this place for poor us, kicked out of our home. Hopefully we can reunite here and make it our new home !

Not a prob...soon as the old school members get on here we can discuss what we're going to do...I'm just getting used to trying to customise this damn place to make it feel a bit better! Smile

I just found this place and registered. Nice of you Lil_Jay to set up this forum. Hopefully we can round up more ex-RF.com'ers. Quite a few are on the RF Forum on Facebook, but I think that this format is better suited for a new home!  

I am looking for a place to post my Ranking charts, as I used to do on RF.com. I will do some tests to see if I can do it here, hopefully. Looking forward to more posting... Smile

Hey Cromar!

Glad you made it....yeah this was just a minimum viable product I came across just to chuck something up. Im no pro by any means so Im changing things every so often to get it to feel like home.

Have a browse of the options, see if things are to your liking, anything I can help with just let me know! Was thinking of tracking down a developer to create the forum skin so it resembles what we had. The templates they had are nowhere near though so I've just kept it boring blue!

Im up for any ideas, I don't necessarily need to be the adminstrator either I was just leading the way I guess.

Good to see you here though, rankings will be interesting this year right!

Hi Lil_Jay, You are doing great. Thanks for your efforts. I don't know much about forums either, but we can learn as we go, I suppose. Maybe you'll find some expert amongst the members!  

Just a suggestion would be to create a few "Main" categories (that would be locked) to organize somewhat the new topics being created, like 'Roger and Tennis', 'Press and Media', 'Fans Report and Photos', 'Roger off Court'... Just some ideas, not unlike what we had on RF.com. And maybe 'ATP Rankings' !  Razz  

Don't know if you know how to set this up?... If not, I could try to look into it. Let me know if you want some help. Thanks gain for starting this! Sunny

Thank you very much Lil_Jay for your effort. I was mainly on the german forum, maybe some of the members from there will show up here? Unfortunately I lost the contact from nearly all of them after the shut down of the old RF homepage.

I just registered... Hope many other former rf.com members will do the same! I'm not really comfortable posting about Roger on facebook, I much prefer the forum format for discussions... Many thanks for creating this place Lil_Jay Very Happy

So pleased to have found this site. I was in despair checking Roger's new website every week thinking I must be missing something - i.e. Where is the forum hidden!!???
