I've been rattling that "Why?" question around a bit.

The answer is simple.

Marketing to different target audiences is easier with two distinct websites.




The answer is never simple. Hope the new site works out well. But then you can start hanging the crepe on this one.

The diverse subjects is what brings many to this forum.

I wonder how many of those complainers are just drop-ins, hit and missers, looking for Utopia ?

This site is unique and I sincerely wish you well, Mike.

The decision has been made and I will add your future success to my prayer list. But I do not have a good feeling about this.

Also, reminder to the Wiz, that there is a resource of the whole board if he wants input, even if he doesn't use it. People give unwanted advice for FREE. It's amazing, and sometimes it's actually useful.

I have received a lot of good advice from people on this forum. Always reluctant to ask, because many make their living by providing information.

I try and return the favor. But many consider the source. Can't say I blame them.

Of course, that free advice also comes at a price. Ask 20 true 'experts' about this topic on this board, and I guarantee you will get 20 different answers on what needs to be done. In the end, only the Wiz knows what he wants. And what he wants, may or may not, line up with any of our wants.

I have not made any private complaints, but I have made a few snipes in some posts. The non gambling topics, and posts not directly on topic have reached major proportions. If someone was only interested in posts that were purely gambling or Vegas related, the noise ratio is really high here now.

Not saying some of it is not valuable, just that it is not gambling or Vegas.

Because those two subjects are very limiting.
There's only so much to be said about either
one and then its been said. Gambling itself
is very boring to do, and even more boring
to talk about. Its repetitive as hell, you just
sit there and do basically the same thing for
hours on end.

And Vegas ain't NYC. Its the 3 mile long Strip
and Downtown. One casino is pretty much like
any other, not a whole lot to discuss.

I forsee here: "Why are you posting about THAT on a gambling forum? TROLL!"

And on DT: "Why are you posting about GAMBLING in this forum? TROLL!"

Trolls at least cause opinions to be expressed and/or defended. That is not always a bad result !

I guess that view depends on what the expectation is, of the particular member, the forum administrator, the forum owner, the person paying the bills, etc.

Some people like to have an exchange about everything, and anything.
Some people want to remain 100% on topic, 100% of the time.
Nobody has the right to say their way is the RIGHT way, however, certain people do have the right to have it THEIR WAY.

I have no idea what is behind this thread. I have my own assumptions (does that make an ASS out of UMPS?)
