vBookie

Hi Guys.

As I am sure you have notice, vBetting options have not been good lately, we are looking for another vBookie.

If you are interested PM me this form.

Why do you want to be a vBookie:

Re: vBookie

To whoever moved this here (RagingLamb).

We tried this in this area of the board in December 2009. We got one application in a month.

I posted this at 7:43 today in General Messages and had two applications in six minutes.

vBetting is dying and you are playing a major role in this. Since you do not answer PM's I ask you here, can it be moved back to General Messages.

We are both volunteers, you would think we would be helping each other.

I have no other appropriate comments to make. Do what is right and help a wonderful game like vBookie continue.

Thanks.

Love Snowwy.

Re: vBookie

I would like to contribute if I can, but I'm not that technical, so don't know if it's difficult to manage and how much time does it take? I'm involved in betting already, so working with the odds and matches anyway.

Same here. I suppose the vBookies have their info on formats and where to get the odds for the bets (I guess from betting sites?) so we should get some instructions on that, but I'd like to give a hand to help. vBetting is too much fun to let it 'die'.

Re: vBookie

I think the real problems for the slump are lack of automization and the inefficient construction of vbookie. Having to open a thread for every single match to be picked had to turn into struggles in the long run. Don't know how it is with the payout, to what extent it's automatized (I hope it is). Lack of interest from the mods by pushing this thread here where clearly less people see it isn't a great help either. The technical staff should think about a complete renovation, like putting all matches in the vBookie section and offer betting right there without having to click numerous links. This way it would be a lot more clearly arranged for the users too. I'm not a big better myself, but it would be kinda pity if vbookie disappears. It's a great option for people who don't want to bet with real money. That said, I'm also willing to help. Quite a few people already posted here and sent pms, so it's not necessary I guess, but if I'm wrong, feel free to send some details and elaborations.

I've set up v-bookie markets before and from my own experience it doesn't take too long for normal MM events where you have 4-5 matches a day. The time consuming aspect is when it is a major event, Slams and to a lesser extent Masters events in the early rounds. However if there a few people to assist the current v-bookie managers it can be spread out evenly.

I think the issue here is that we basically have only Snowwy and a couple of others to help him and they are in differing time zones as well.

No technical experience required, fairly straightforward steps which Snowwy or any other current manager can walk you through it. The odds are taken from a couple of the major bookies, obviously as you are familiar with how betting markets work it will be a breeze for you but even if one is not familar with how it all works it's a fairly simple thing to pick up.

fair point and I agree it is a fairly manual process in terms of setting the matches up, but as mentioned above if you have 2-3 people working on one event on a daily basis the most you would have to do is 3-4 which won't take too long.

This is one aspect which is completely automised, all you have to do is tick a box next to the player name who won and voila

IMO where the v-books are currently setup (within each of the tournament threads) makes sense to me. I think the idea initially was that people could easily refer back to the OOP/draws threads which would be located in the same forum. Unfortunately those threads don't exist these days as the concept of livescoring in the tournament threads no longer exists.

Btw I don't mean to steal Snowwy's thunder I too like playing v-bookie and would hate to see it die a slow death so it's great to see a lot of interested people willing to help

Re: vBookie

One of my friends on here said that he didn't get the job because of his history (he's been banned twice ).
Does that mean that I won't get the job because I've been banned five times?

I suspect it might be v/illegal for a v/15 year old to be involved in v/betting as a v/bookie.
