Is someone else miss it? :-/
It was removed from Last 10 forum topics because Livescore otherwise would be on top all the time.
I also removed a few other subforums/sections from Last 10, just because of this.

Poker was moved out to a Last 10 poker topics, because it "interfered" with the sports.

It would be better also, if you could advertise some Asian Books in thsi website as one of the reference for us customers. I heard that Asian Books have better odds and that is why I am interesting as I am not familiar with any site from there. Hope someoen can help me. Thanks! xoxoxoxo

I would love if experts were not allowed to use exchanges. The point of BA must be for users to benefit from expert tips. Just because a small amount has been matched on Betfair at high price - the tip probably is useless to the users because the can not even get close to that odd.

Example:
Today MapleLeafs has posted a play on Caen - AC Arles in Fra2. Over 2.5 @ 2.28.
I can see that a small amount has been matched at that price. The market average is 2.09 - probably removing any value. Should the price at least not have been corrected with the 5% commision?

Exactly. I underwrite it with both my hands.

I understand your views here, and it has been discussed several times before as well.
Most of our tipsters dont use Betfair or other betting exchanges as their primary source of betting odds, though.
I dont feel we can remove Betfair and others either, because they are a part of the betting market.

We prefer our tipsters to use odds from "normal" bookies, but from time to time there are suggestions for using Betfair posted on mainsite.
Obviously, most readers will likely use their own preferred bookie anyway, but having said this, I fully understand your views.

It may be that we remove exchanges later on.

We've had a discussion about that before and i doubt if theirs even a 1% chance of it happening. What you will end up with is either people just posting a list of picks with no explanations. Or people posting previews in that thread instead of where they should be in the correct game thread.

how about some introductzion of BA tipsters accesible through clicking on their nickname in the standings in the head of each section. they may choose what to write about themselves: age nationality previous sport or betting experiences, something to make them closer to the readers not only a couple of characters.
you know what i mean it donīt have to be obligatory,and shall look like this:

hello my name is xxxx iīm 28 from xxx and been involved in basketball since i was 12. due to studying i quit playing and started betting. i like tiesto and girls with BTRA

do you feel me?

I think the one of the best improves than BA could do in the next version is to be able to check all last picks (and previews) from tipsters and not just a few ones. At least I see to be able to check all past picks from a tipster very interesting new add. I am just surprised than not many people ask about that in suggestions thread. I think it is probably the biggest gap in BA.

I think its a good idea to post all ante-post bets in different section, sometimes its confusing, for example Mighty`s Nor Div. 1. The other problem is when looking for picks of the day and you go to see picks only to find out that most sections are on ante-post bets, waste of time really!

Agree, especially once the season begins...they are generally useless at this point, just need to be confirmed as winners or losers. Maybe the body of the text can be hidden once the season starts and clicking can make it appear?

I understand these views.

It is not function int he system to hide them, but they can ofcourse be removed.

Season long bets has usually not been allowed at BA, so I am thinking about only allowing long term bets no longer than 3 months, due to an inflation of season bets.

4 years passed since announcing the new project, probably we won't live up to it but at least the current content can be revised in some 1-2 hours. For example Pointbet is still in the list of recommended bookies....

I mean this page:

http://www.bettingadvice.com/showInfo.php?id=208

Quote:
Pointbet: The best Asian Handicap bookie on the net! Alongside Pinnacle, there is no better bookie for Asian Handicap betting. Very good range of bets, reliable and quick payouts. Don't miss this one ! Also, you get 50$ if you get a friend to join Pointbet, who stakes at least 100$.

He also knows the business, and should be able to do a good job for us.

I have sent specs, and the specs have been reviewed and agreed upon, but there are ofcourse room for changes.

So come with all your suggestions, they will be listened to.

We have a target date og late March 2008.
It will mean moving over to a Windows server, and ASP.net technology, and in that respect we will also update to phpbb version 3 (remember, phpbb 3.0 is not officially supported yet, still in beta modus).


Feel free to suggest features for the new site.
I do not understand why this forum is to become a free script for phpBB3 and not vBulletin ??

->>> The tipster section on the main page for choosing bookmaker.
There are plenty of bookies who not even exits or past in the year become Casino and Poker sites, so they not offering any sportsbook.
It will be good this bookmaker list to me modified with removing the old ones and maybe adding some new(if there is not any terms and conditions).
