    @teacher10, this is not the freeplay push problem causing this. If it was the "at risk" balance would be negative, not the full balance.

    Do you recall a book to forum transfer having an issue?

    It looks like you probably got two transfers for that amount at some point, and the system reversed one.

    Does that sound right?

    Unsure. It was probably a bet I made that lost that caused this. I went back to bet history but it's not showing which bets I made. Thanks for looking into this.

    Well this is upsetting to hear. 14 year anniversary coming up. Been a member 35% of my existence.

    I can’t imagine a betting forum thinking they’ll be able to keep members when they just offer playing for “Tier” points.

    Business model sounds like those casino apps. Watch our 171 ads for 50,000 casino chips that will never be redeemable even if you build it to 17 million.

    Such is life, I suppose. Things end. People move on.

    There is $20,000 cash for one contest, $3000 cash for another right now. There will be a bowl contest. So there is 20-30k value in the last few months of this year.

    And that is just temporary stuff.

    Appreciate you not piling on with the nuts in our peanut gallery and repeating their lines.

    They are not nuts in a peanut gallery.

    They are loyal SBR pro members who got screwed over.

    Their anger and disappointment should be easily understood and that shows in their posts.

    in fairness there is a difference between those contests and the points. the contests are awesome. the thread is about the store.

    and i think we have a right to say what we say. if the shoe was on the other foot and we did something to sbr i could imagine sbr coming after us hard. you, not you personally but SBR as a whole, really should see how disappointed we are in all of this and try to be more forthcoming with info. time just keeps going by.

    I know it's disappointing, but you are not a numpty like some others to be posting the program has no value.

    Andy has posted that points will be honored. There is maybe over $30k being given away before the year ends to Pro members.

    And once budgets are approved for 2023 Andy will be able to say for sure what the plan will be ongoing.

    Yes it sucks it has taken over a year to get nowhere much. Certainly not apologizing for the company for that, but no need to put the boot in repeating BS about no value.

    Every time I read some SBR update about their plans and reasons for closing the Store I want to grab a shovel cause the shit just gets deeper with each passing month.
    The negative responses of many long-term posters is because
    1. New SBR management lied for 12 months
    2. BSed about re-opening the SBR Store so posters could continue to Redeem points that they have "Earned" year after year. Posters who have accumulated thousands of points are literally getting screwed, because I'm sure they like most of us had plans to redeem for things they had their eyes on for a long time in the Store.
    3. SBR tries to tell us that the Store closing and the changes to Points redemption to come is because they are promoting US Regulated books instead of Offshore books. Completely different topics, I would say. Store point redemption doesn't have anything to do with what Books are being promoted nor with what books each and every poster chooses to use.

    In the most basic of terms, new SBR looks to be replacing an In-N-Out Burger with a White Castle.
    Let's be real, new SBR management has offered nothing but false promises and Contests with Points that can not be redeemed for anything.

    That all may come true and if it does then that is great because itís more than most sites offer. However you canít ignore that it has been 14+ months now and there have been countless posts laying out plans for points and the store that were completely abandoned.

    So I think it is understandable if the vast majority of posters are pessimistic about the promises being made at this point.

    I think most posters here are looking for a business plan that will benefit the company and the stake holders. Like the above post states, it has been over a year and we (posters) as one of the company's major stake holders are still in the dark. Last year at this time we were told the new owners were on vacation and will be back with answers after the 1st, didn't happen. I will not rehash everything that has happened since then.

    Now we are being told "once the 2023 budget is approved Andy will be able to say for sure what the plan will be ongoing". Really??? I hope this is correct but I totally understand folks not buying it.

    Posters deserve to know IMO what is really going on in a reasonable amount of time. You disrespect one of the spokes that the wheel relies on to keep rolling and everyone suffers.

    If members were prepared to accept low value gift cards and SBR obliged would members consider this to be a stiff if SBR then introduced a better scheme in 2023?

    Will there be any cash contests that allow basketball games to be chosen from? I'm sure this has been asked before, but why do NFL, and NCAAFB lines get put up with consistency, while other sports are not? Why is it easier to "access" the football lines?

    Let me know when you see me arguing about that.

    I am about over the ones posting they get no value from the program though. That's $23000 away from true this month. Add on the Bowl Contest, March Madness and NFL playoffs cash and it will end up a lot more money than that over the next 3 months.

    I wish I had a better answer for this apart from our techs do not appear to be able to make the data feed for those odds to work reliably. I do not know why its just certain sports. I believe a technology change is planned so maybe they are just waiting for that or something. It's maddening to me too.

    I've got a question for you Opti. Does John Walker still collect the affiliate money from those of us who signed up for the sportsbooks through the SBR links or did that transfer over to the new owners with the sale?

    In my opinion if the new owners are receiving the affiliate money, then they should let everyone redeem their points for Bitcoin or gift cards under the pricing that was in place when they bought SBR. If John is still collecting the affiliate money from our sign-ups, then he should be on the hook to cover the points.

    I don't know BigO.

    But I think it's unlikely that the new company would want to be earning revenue from non-licensed books.

    I'll answer your question: yes he does!

    And on the new site, they still offer points... I mean 'coins', as they call them now, for sportsbook cash - mostly the same books too. Except, since we already signed up as new customers to get into the promo here, we can't also do it there and simply switch and continue there. Maybe someone should open a thread on their forum, highlighting the issue. Pretty funny that the new SBR is stuck with useless points, while the previous clique continues to profit off of all the old SBR signups and wagering on top of having basically the same new site set up where everything is the way it used to be here.

    I've had the pleasure of meeting John on a few of the trips. He seemed pretty sharp. If he got a good price for selling SBR and he gets to keep the affiliate revenue from sign-ups since 2005, he is even sharper than I thought. Kudos to John if that is the case.

    Yeah he is very smart and sharp. Following his template for SBR would have been my personal choice if I had bought the place.
