Default Main page tipping rules

I thought that this was ridiculous but what came next was hilarious...
And all the today bets were published 45' before kickoff.

And I am wondering. Is this any helpful to anyone, or it is a witch hunting?
Aren't any rules about main page tipsters?
And all bets are going to lose today as well.

yesterday...


today...

Definitely agree with mantis here, this causes nothing but a handy mess on the main page, surely drifting down the quality as well.

wow, just saw this. My first thought was, that there is some mainpage error... - Betting >250 units within three days on just five matches (and losing about 70 units or sth like that). I remember guys putting 20-25 units on one game and getting criticized a lot for it in the past. But PACO's last weekend must set some kind of new alltime BA record.

It is poor. When mainsite is up PACOs acount will be removed. He has had his warnings, did not take them, and we have to end this now.
Mainpage BA is not supposed to be a playground.

My apologies

It is ok .. Thanks for the concern Dan and grefstad.

Although that we fully believed that we would break the BA all times's record in only one month, whether, that was the target from the outset ..

I'm sorry, PACO, but there were just too many bets from you, on the same game, which gives an nonserious impression.
I am aware that you were eager to prove yourself, and results were not too bad at all, but we can not have "flooding" of bets, which gives us an impression of being unserious.
Sorry

That's fine by me, I pointed out already, it is ok Terje, and thanks again for the care shown. You are absolutely right. That was not the point, to proved something to anyone from any point of view, not even close to that. Believe me, people like us have already done and passed all things in this world, then certainly no need to prove anything, certainly for anyone. I pointed out already, what was our point and target from the outset, type of intervention for piles of money, to break BA all times's record (1200 p), in only one month, and totally through several fewer bets, but only in this way, who is the most difficult .. I'm ready to commit that it had to be in this month. Anyway, I was glad get to know you Terje from the slightly that we had.

Regards

That's nice Paco but you are missing something.
If anyone could bet 120 units per game the alltime BA record as you say, could be broken in two weeks time and not in one month. You just need 10 winners in a row.

The pity thing here is that you had a goal to break the BA record as you say, and not to help or advice something useful to anyone.

p.s. I still didn't find out what was that 'Mr. Mantis' thing you said in the other thread... Anyway... you can keep it for yourself.

hope to be seeing you in the forum. You can share your view to the today's game at the Romareda.

Default HELP

Hello all!
Could anyone help me?

I was in contact with Terje to became tipster for Motorports. He accepted but I cannot see myself as tipster and I cannot post my predictions.

I sent a lot of mails to Terje but he didn't answer.
Can anybody tell me if I could contact someone else? Or if you have any other suggestion....

Thank a lot!

(Tipster name should be Jaguaro11)

Unfortunately only Terje can do this(we don't have access to main page). But he has not visited the forum this week at all, so he is probably busy with something urgent. Please be patient, I'm sure he'll sign you up as soon as he returns.

What about Macot? A vast majority of his picks are over-bets with maximum stakes in random games because "the league is high-scoring" and his arguments are purely based on statistics. I have checked his balance since he started this over-bet strategy and he's clearly losing in the long run, so it seems illogical to continue.

Furthermore, he also posts many correct score bets with high odds in an obvious and desperate attempt to make a quick profit. Does anyone really believe he places those bets himself?

Today we have one over bet, one 2-4 correct score ("for fun" according to Macot himself) and one 0-4 correct score bet ("because 0-5 wasn't available").

Macot might enjoy himself trying out different strategies to increase his balance without risking any of his own money, but some of us take this betting thing a bit more seriously and we visit websites like BA for quality information. If BA wants to maintain a good reputation in the betting industry, they have to do something about unprofessional behaviour like this from approved frontpage tipsters.

I agree with your post and you have many good points. Although I would judge him after few thousand bets after this strategy and if I remember correctly he is not even close now. IMO if this page wants to improve or even stay as it is it has to go through massive changes. I do not see this happening though and I can see many(informative & profitable) guys leaving this page soon. And no, itīs not about changes in personal lives. Itīs about BA living in the past.

I do also agree with you totally, manuel86. Macot is a shadow of himself nowadays, just like BA itself. He used to be caring for his picks and was very successful some years ago, but now all he does is to choose a vast of games depending on 'only' statistics and feelings and if I'm not mistaken he still runs a paid service (used to be Doctorbet or something different now, maybe he changes the name of his service once a while to clear his negative stats?).

And Macot is not the only one, such a pity.

Well...you can change the page layout as much as you want, but when push comes to shove, websites like this will never be better than the combined sum of the contributors.
When the site started ages ago, year 2000, the mood among people was different. People wanted to contribute.
Nowadays people keep info more to themselves, and it is hard to find people with a genuine wish to contribute for the benefit of greater good.

But once in a while, some new tipsters show up with good stats, and good picks. The hard thing is to find them, the second hardest is to get them to write for a betting website for the benefit of a betting community.

Well some years ago I was posting picks to the main page. One day I just could not log in.
No post, no message: why when what. So I think it was pretty mauch called on (mood of today)

imo it was a shitty job by you or whoever. And in the long run you got back what you put in.

So if you were a tipster, and then suddenly was removed, must have been due to inactivity.
If it was wrong, I offer my apologies.

I am going to do a cleanup of inactive tipsters very soon, as it is no use having people listed as tipsters when their last login is 8 months ago....

If you want to be tipster, send me an email on tipsters@bettingadvice.com and I will happy accomodate you again.
