Don't throw him under the bus for such a statement.

He DID use the keyword "may"...


Thanks DJTeddyBear,

For pointing out the keyword "may"...

Perhaps a better solution is the development of the option for each user to customize which discussions will appear on their "recent" list. That way you can take or leave whatever interests you.

As for the betting systems threads, I don't mind them, but I don't read all of them either. I suppose the folks who are interested in them could say the same about the "game design" thread. It's a tough call to decide for everyone. It may be better to err on the side of too many displayed than not enough.

I don't get the rationale. Yes, betting system are useless, but it does not necessarily make them uninteresting. There are many interesting things that are pretty useless. Gambling is one of them.



I have to agree on this one. I like hearing about some of them so if the topic comes up I can at least discuss it. For good to warn people why they will not work. For bad to let someone think they are explining they just discovered gravity when I know I have been stuck to the ground for years.

" Anything to do with gambling including betting system should be okay to post on this forum.
That is how people learn why and how betting system doesn't work. "

Well stated, Stephen. Let's try and educate players at all levels

The betting systems threads have been comedy gold! I especially like the ones that insist that past results are indicative of future returns. They are so earnest yet so wrong.
Someday, joor goin' to see the name of Googie Gomez in lights and joor goin' to say to joorself, "Was that her?" and then joor goin' to answer to joorself, "That was her!" But you know somethin' mister? I was always her yuss nobody knows it! - Googie Gomez

I do think that it brings the quality of discussion and ultimately the intelligence of the forum down a few pegs. I also highly doubt that it is a phase that will go away in time.




Then dont read (or respond) them, problem solved on your end, correct?

At the moment I favor leaving things as they are. It seems to me that the betting system threads tend to be among the most popular topics. As an example, the 98steps challenge thread.

I see many Betting System threads having very good math in them. 98 steps has some great Craps stuff by alan, they need to be in their own thread.

The ones that read those threads by finding them in a search can learn a lot from them.

Some say guns should have no place in society.
Too dangerous and they kill too many people.
I say, learn how to use the gun and do not use it as a hammer when there are bullets in it...

Thanks Wizard for you free forum.
If you ever have a paid only section, for special members only for whatever, count me in.
We need more model photos.

Enjoy!

I for one am in favor of a seperate thread only for those system that have shown they can overcome
a negative expectation. But I would limit that thread to no more than 14 winning systems.
