Wow, so it has. That's quite sad for the big contributors there and it's always disappointing when a platform for opinion is closed. MW has had a bumpy history with them on occasion but in recent times we've certainly found peace.

So if any members from that forum wish to immigrate here, they are very welcome and I hope everyone here will help them with the transition so they feel at home.

For those that need to change their usernames to reflect their identity from the other forum, click here.

A bit strange, but I can understand why to an extent this has happened.  When Andy first came on the scene there was no MW or AM.com and all there pretty much was for a while was his player thread at menstennisforums.com and I remember posting there a lot in the early days.  Thereafter I migrated here and AM, although posted very little on the official site.

We are all a community of Andy fans at the end of the day.  But for some of the mods with huge amounts of posts it would be weird to go somewhere else and start again, especially if you have little impact on the running of the site.  Although being an Andy fan has little to do with how much you post online.  Some of the people that probably attend the most matches never come to the sites.

The more to join in the discussion the better.  We all love Andy, we all want him to succeed.  That much we all share, the rest is what we are here to discuss.

Wow! How random!  shocking

Used to go on there as regularly as I came on here but it has been a few months since I've been on there.

Think I was one of the first members to register on there actually. lol

Any ideas what led to this?

I remember seeing a conversation on Twitter recently over how something had got out of control there but wasn't sure what it was referring to specifically.

I've been looking on Twitter about this, it seems the mods have been taken by surprise on this one as well. Everyone clueless on the reason behind this.

It was referring to a video clip from 8 out of 10 cats Uncut a few weeks ago that was making fun of Andy, one member posted a link (which I am no going to) & some members took offence that such a clip was posted on Andy's forum & then it went totally out of control & a few members left the forum, which was sad as they did contribute a lot & the mods were blamed for the way it was handled.Personally I did'nt like what was said on the clip, but freedom of speech & all that you can't censure everthing & I just chose to ignore it...............

Think it's disgraceful that they've let a few people ruin a good thing for so many people, and frankly it's embarrassing that it's Andy's forum. Have the ones on VB or RF's sites been closed down? There'd be hell on if they went.

Have just come on here after discovering am.com's forum has shut down. I was a member on there almost from the start. I am stunned and shocked this decision has been taken. Maybe I will be able to follow Andy on here. I will have to wait and see if I can find my way around.
