Re: Gamblers Lounge - Suggestions

In my opinion, it would be best organized to have one thread per tournament. If there are high profile matches, or huge opportunities, or just someone you gotta get off your chest make a thread, etc.

Could also have like an NBA thread, soccer, etc.

Re: Gamblers Lounge - Suggestions

congrats bad gambler

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Gamblers Lounge - Suggestions

I don't have a suggestion for this forum, and where the posts should be displayed. I, however, have a suggestion for the vBetting itself.

Eliminate private marking altogether. I mean, what is the realistic purpose in this feature? So what. Nobody can see your bet.

When you've accumulated as much v$ as Filipo does it really serve a purpose to the Sherlocks out there?

Re: Gamblers Lounge - Suggestions

I think since i came up with the idea of a Gamblers forum I also should be a Forum umpire or whatever you call it along with Bad Gambler.

sounds like a plan H-fan - one thread per tournament and another thread devoted to random chit chat

also we'll run with the idea of creating new threads for other sports, seems like the gerneral interest amongst the MTF punters are BBall & Soccer

I'll see if i can get mady to create sub forums for the other sports so that it doesn't clog up the tennis chat

Re: Gamblers Lounge - Suggestions

I think maybe just have a thread for each day's events where people can post thoughts, picks, insights, etc. After that day is over, it'll just drop off into the sunset.

Re: Gamblers Lounge - Suggestions

man i've been on the site for a couple of hours today and i never saw the gamblers lounge had officially opened, i only realised when i went back to our thread from yesterday and saw it had been closed! truly brilliant! our campaign didn't take too long to have an impact

i'm with joel (hrbatyfan), think his ideas sound good. and i think it should be made clear that v-bettors aren't welcome, sorry!
