Paytables never change. After they are all posted you run out of material. Then it's crickets and tumbleweeds. Looks like What Did You Eat Today will survive though, because that is Ministry approved off topic content. Will probably be less posts in that thread because not as many drivebys will be happening. This forum is like a a town that is being cut off from the interstate. Only its doing it to itself.



So if you dont come here for gambling topics why not just go to a political forum and discuss stuff there.

Especially now that political topics arent wanted anymore

You guys have one hour left to express political opinions. Make the most of it.



Longest hour ever

Do you go to the bus forum to discuss riding the bus. No, you discuss it here. Why? I don't care what you discuss by the way. I enjoy most of your contributions and opinions. Why do you care about what I post on? You're posts are all over the political threads. Why didn't you post on some politic forum? I don't even know any political forums. The only forums I frequent are all gambling and market related.

Those are good points, I know this rule was aimed at political threads. But, it cuts at everything that is not gaming or Vegas-tourism related.

No more food discussions, no more news, no more random stories, personal issues, etc......

Basically, I predict if this rule stays this forum will have the occasional new game thread, trip reports, the occasional betting system thread, and some random poker chatter, but it will be far fewer posts. There simply is only so much you can say about the same games (and most new threads are pretty much repeated past discussions.....)

As others have said, the most exciting thing gaming related is AP opportunities, but those threads quickly get hardballed...

I love gambling, I love blackjack, I love poker, I love the atmosphere in many casinos, but realistically speaking, the topics are minimal, and almost everything has already been said (generally many times over)....



I agree.

I think about 80 or 90% of my interest in this forum is non-gaming related. But it's admin's choice. They can modify their approach with limiting just political threads. That would be fine with me.

I would second this. Disallowing all non-Vegas/gambling threads will make the forum more of a resource in that you come here with a question, then leave with the answer. Keeping the light-hearted non-gambling threads will keep the forum a community.

As to the forum suffering if the political threads are removed, I think just the opposite. Just look at this thread the past 24-ish hours. There have been several quality posters, that I don't see very often anymore, chiming in.

Gambling is a finite subject. When you find
your niche, which is what people are looking
for, 95% of gambling is a total bore.

Can we ask for other topics to disappear? I see no need for them either.

It's intolerable when these other topics pop up on the screen? Why allow them?
