  • Your POD thoughts

    As you can see "POD rules" thread is huge and people are having trouble finding what they need there. That's why i will moderate that thread and i will leave only the rules there.

    I'm opening this thread so you can all give your ideas how to improve POD, what do you like/dislike, and ask questions !!!!

    I hope this will work out good, and i'm sure you'll help in making POD even better than it is now !

    Thanks !

    It took me 1 hour and 35 minutes. I have a headache now !! :evil:

    But it was worthed. Now we have reasonable 3 pages of the rules ( only the rules and questions concidering them) and everything you need you can find there. I locked that topic and thats why this topic will be used for discussions and questions about POD in general or about some picks of yours.


    Btw, if you're wondering why is the number of your posts reduced and who the hell deleted your posts, then i'm the one you should blame.

    But have in mind that i was the one who suffered the most with 24 deleted posts.
    Macot, Strandns and latso were right behind me...

    Good luck guys :!:

        Don't get me wrong Razvi but why didn't you say this last month :wink:
        I don't see a reason to punish someone like this. Everybody can have a bad month and it doesn't mean that he won't improve or even win the POD next month !

          That's not so good suggestion IMO. We all have bad periods and bad runs, so it doesnt mean if I have finished this month with negative score, that I will have bad results again in the next month

                in short my suggestions:
                1. You can win a prize only if you have at least 6 correct picks(you avoid the situation when someone gots lucky and gets it with 4 x 3.50 - +400 8O possible right?)
                2. My other suggestion is about the situation that happened with Luka.
                I think it's not fair at all to say - if you want i will post a pick with a not allowed bookie so you'll void it and i'll stay with my current result.
                In fact when i was checking the results 1 or two days before the end i was sure that Minov is capable to win it if the favs make some wrong picks and at the end - "i will stay with my current result 8O "
                Is it possible for me to make 3 in a row 3.50 :arrow: +750 and stay with my current result?
                Does this make me a good tipster so i deserve to win a prize? - not at all IMO.
                The suugestion itself is - if you have not 10 picks wrong or correct, you'll lose 100 points for each. This must count for voided picks as well.
                AH -50 is a wrong pick so it counts as a taken one.

                Just a suggestion :wink:

                  This is a very good suggestion, that will also enable specials to be brought back. I, myself, am not a fan of specials, but once in a while I also find some of the offers to be very good indeed (especially HT/FT or set betting in tennis).

                  You cannot win anything if you haven't made the minimum amount of picks - which is 10. We can add this rule about substracting 100 units for every pick, until reaching 10. That way, someone with 9/9 can still win the competition, even if he didn' manage to pick 10 games (of course, having 9/10 with 100 points substracted).
                  It's not important whether you win or lose, it's important whether I win or lose !

                    Hehe, Latso...check the champios race standings, and the points for example Afos21 has for last month.

                    This rule was always here. We always take -100 points for every missing pick at the end.
                    So, if you make 750 points from 3 picks and don't give a pick again, you'll end this month with 50 points !!!
                    This rule was here from the beginings of POD in 2003 !

                    Maybe you got confused because i wasn't taking the points in the standings, but we're not doing that because it's a lot of work for nothing.
                    Yet, in Champions race standings, you can see how many points a competitor made after taking -100 points for every missing pick.

                    So, don't worry about this :wink:

                      obviously i am missing something but didn't Luka won the second place last month without last pick?
                      and do u delete the previous months' statistiques?

                      anyway, if we have a rule like this already it's ok.

                      You can think on the 6/10 minimum and no need to bring back the specials like our friend messer is suggesting coz they weren't forbiden because of the big odds, you still have 3,50 max and high risk picks available but for other reasons (i can't realy remember the reasons :roll: )

                      In fact the problem with the special picks is that it takes much more work to be done for voiding picks for bad explanation, right?

                      Coz in fact when the max 3,5 is still available, the problem would only be that it is very hard to explain why Henry will score between 15' and 30' and be convincing

                      Everything is a matter of good argumentation and the problem with specials is that it is almost impossible to have someone who can void and let go objectively such picks. It would take a majority decision from at least 3 mods for every questionable pick and this forum will go to a law court :lol: :arrow:

                      so no specials :P

                        Yes you are missing something. Check the thread from 31st December, and look at Luka's post again. And read it carefully :P
                        Previous month's statistics are not deleted, they are only not sticky anymore. Look under the topic from 1st january, you'll see the standings from December !

                        I also like the 6/10 suggestion, but i don't know if it will be fair ! if someone has 5/10 (+500) and someone has 9/10 (+350) i don't see a reason why should the first guy be punished.
                        And also...i don't remember someone winning a prize with 5/10 or 4/10. Theoretically it could happen, but for now i would leave it this way.
                        This suggestion is opened for discussion, and i would like to hear what do the other guys think !

                          The specials were forbidden mainly because people start taking same type of bets ... but chasing higher odds. For example, instead of straight win, one would choose HT/FT, just to get more points. Or in tennis, instead of straight win, one would choose 2-0 set betting (though this is some kind of a handicap, maybe it should be allowed) ... and other examples.
                          It's not important whether you win or lose, it's important whether I win or lose !

                            i understand now, thank you for your time.

                            You're right that the 6/10 thing must be discussed first and perhaps a 5/10 condition would be fair enough but as u said - it never happened before so no need to hurry

                              so about the pod

                              if total goals of 4 or more are good then it means total goals like over 2.5 3.5 4.5

                              how about winning margin to win by 2 goals or more!!

                              because its the same thing as -1.5 so this one should stand too

                              if you say that total goals 4 or more are good!!

                              No, you are not allowed to use EH. And it has nothing to do with the mentioned goal bets, which are all of the same kind.
                              And if the point is to help others (is it for you?) then we're all perfectly OK with your "team to win" picks, no matter the gambling with how many goals difference. /Strand


                              Strand, wake up friend. EH's are allowed. We decided that 5 days ago, and you were the first one who voted "YES" for European handicaps (Minov) :P
