Goodbye 606 - Hello MTL

comment on the article

We all know that tonight is the last night of 606. I've said what I to say about this site, it's flaws and it's strengths. But it's time to move on. And the best site I can suggest to tennis fans is MTL. Many former 606ers have gone there and the site was in fact set up by 606 members a few year ago. This means that any 606 members going there should feel comfortable.

One of the most famous features of MTL are its games and competitions including the suicide game and re extremely popular and competitive picking game, where free subscriptions to TennisTV are up for grabs. There are also live threads to comment on tennis matches as they are happening. There are off-topic threads for chat, music discussion and other sports such as football.

One criticism levelled at the site is the lack of 606-esque discussion but we have improved on that aspect and with new members from 606 hopefully joining, this will continue to grow. In terms of moderation, it is moderated by members of the site who join in discussion with everyone else. There is also a feedback thread for any issues or questions you want to raise.

MTL is a growing site that can only continue to improve with increased membership. I hope that you will join up and allow MTL to fill the 606-shaped gap in your lives. You can join here:

Also, I would like to add a sincere goodbye and goodluck to everyone who has posted on this site, whether you are joining MTL or not or whether you still post or not. I may not post much here anymore and I may not have always agreed with your views, but I have enjoyed the site and discussion. Thanks for the memories.

All the best!

Funny I do not feel nostalgic, I found pastures new LONG LONG ago.

Met some great people on 606 though.

"Met some great people on 606 though."

It's strange that the people I talk to most on MTL are people I never really interacted with on 606.

Catalan, post on the introduction thread, just to start yourself off.

FMKK : I may be too late for you to catch this (was otherwise engaged most of today) but you've persuaded me to give MTL a try !

Maybe not immediately (I think I'll take a little break after the 606 closure and re-charge the old batteries) but probably in time for Wimby

(Bet that's made your day ....!! ;))

No it doesn&#39;t KingWUM!

I&#39;ll tell everyone that you secretly love Rebecca Black and Justin Beiber and that&#39;s why you put up their videos.

Hopefully MTL gets some new members out of this. I should be getting paid for all my advertising work!
