Thumbs down Can we have the v-betting changed back to it's former layout?

I really don't like the new layout for v-betting where you have to go to the actual tournament thread to put a bet on. It was so much easier before when you just clicked on a v-cash link or the VirtualBetting link and it took you to all the open matches

This new format is so much slower There are a few others that I know of that have shown displeasure for it too so please consider changing it back!!

Yeah, this new format sucks. I gotta click 50 links to place one bet.

Re: Can we have the v-betting changed back to it's former layout?

I agree 100%. I haven't even bothered placing bets recently because I can't be bothered to click through a ton of screens just to find the couple of matches that I want to bet on.

It was much more user friendly and easier to just click on the v-betting link and all of the available matches to bet on were laid out right there on one page.

Why did you have to mess with something that wasn't broke to begin with?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

It was broke because it was causing the site to crash during busy times.

It's still fairly easy to find your bet. Just use your browser "find" tool to jump immediately to the thread(s) you need each day. In firefox, you can keep the find box open until you're finished.

I don't mind the newer vbetting format but I definitely prefer the former one. I went about a month without vbetting because I had no clue the newer way was in place. I just thought vbetting was down. MTF you owe me money!!!

Re: Can we have the v-betting changed back to it's former layout?

Due to time constraints, I will no longer be able to run the Virtual Betting game with immediate effect. If somebody else, or a team of individuals is interested in carrying on the game, it may be possible to resurrect virtual betting.

You will need to understand fractional odds to post markets.
You will need to source odds from betting sides to keep the game realistic.
And you will need time and plenty of enthusiasm to keep up with the rash of events.

Please let me know if anyone is interested.

Thanks.
