    I can confirm that voting does indeed bump a post.

    It looks like BF's sorting system goes by when any content within a thread is appended, not when the last post is made. Probably a bug as other vb forums doesn't do this.

    As I remember Kwun changed the way polls are viewed by the software a while back so they would just act like a thread, if someone voted it would be as if they posted a reply and the poll would be moved back up the rankings.

    But being open afer such a long time

THat was a very nice gesture, and turns out Kenneth won that match.

    Very Nice indeed..

    I usually inform the umpire if I am certain it is in... up to him to reverse the call or not.. with shot that I'm not sure of .. I leave the decision to the linesman/umpire..

    depends on the circumstances of teh game totally. If i'm in a tournament, close game im going to call it in my favor if there is any thought in my mind that it was out. No cheating tho. If i was playing my cousin and he hits something close i'm giong to give it to him if we are playing for fun

    I don't know!
    I want to win and of course I don't want to cheat; but sometimes it contradicts my wanting to win.

    It can be tempting , but don't let that get to you ! It's only a point. Besides , if you are meant to win , you will ... but cheating is definitely not the way

    Yeah, you're probably right. I would feel more satisfied by not cheating.

    I'd always give the point to the opponents. I also have sometimes the bad habbit of moving a foot when serving, my opponents never notice, but my coach does and we just stop playing the point then.

    Do you mean that on the moment you serve, you just suddenly move a foot? What serve did/do you use?

    Yes, it happened sometimes when performing a flick serve. It's only a couple of centimeters, but it's still a couple of centimeters too much

    Oh, don't mind that post. I just realized that we should discuss in improving ourselves and not laugh at each other. Sorry for that.

    heheh id call it out even if it was in, but the line judge called it out, because i don't give a crap about if they win or lose, and you must know this can happen to you, so i'd take this as a favour from god
