    The main takeaways are the retirement of the Service Plays forum and a firmer stance against offensive/inappropriate posts. These will not be tolerated going forward and infractions/bans will be issued if necessary to enforce the guidelines.

    Let's all do our part to make this a betting community we are proud to be a part of.

    Great work Andy. Thank you again.

    There really shouldn't be an issue because I've been harping on the same policies for how many years now? I've repeatedly explained that you never know who is reading or using Google Translate to understand what's going on as English isn't their first language and the feedback we were getting was atrocious at times.

    You're not going to be banned for saying shit or asshole or the words we've allowed for the past 10 years or so. But if you keep trying to dodge the auto-sensor you will. And some of you do repeatedly and that leniency is now gone. The same goes for ruining threads or repeatedly posting about random BS all over the forum.

    Just think of this place as doing grocery shopping. If you need/like fruit and veg go to that aisle. If you don't have a dog, avoid the pet food one. If you're lactose intolerant avoid those fridges altogether... don't go over there and open every lid and spill milk all over the floor ruining it for other shoppers.

    Things are getting sorted out behind the scenes. MUCH more slowly than any of us had anticipated or hoped for. Trust me, it's not a bed of roses to have to keep reassuring you guys that things are happening when we're approaching a year soon. But it will happen and when it does this will just be another wacky year like COVID gave most of us (or in some cases two) and we'll forget about it soon enough, just as we did when all the problems happened when Betpoints and Poker were introduced and pizza was taken away lol

    Yeah I agree totally. It's hard for me as we never had pizza over here although I tried way back in the days of that guy Encoder or Inforcer or whatever his name was... Crazy Pete' best mate. But I kept being told pizza was the easiest. Maybe @ Andy in that suggestion which I do agree with. Even an online gift voucher or whatever you've got going on over there. A code or something. Even though things seem to be progressing as slow as f, the new owners and management are seriously really open to innovation and new ideas. Whatever is going to make this place sing.

    So please keep the suggestions coming and involve Andy as he'll be able to escalate it upstairs

    Thank you Shari!! I hope you dont have to keep repeating that 50 times its straight forward and if I can understand it anyone should be able too.

    That part about going where you need to go and staying away from other aisles, I hope some take that to heart!!

    Do you ever lose your voice from having to repeat simple statements?
    You probably feel like a elementary school teacher sometimes!

    It's all good darling. Frustrating a bit at times but I remind myself that I also don't always follow the repeatedly stated rules at work or whatever.

    We're just trying to ensure everyone has a lovely experience here. It doesn't need to be a heavily "woke" or heavily sanitised experienced but let's try to have a bit of decorum keeping in mind that there are many eyes watching.

    If you want to get a bit naughty, go to the Saloon and if it's too out there we'll get rid of it

    The 3000 points should not be taken at all. But respond to the pro renewal notice if they have been sent, admin will either extend your expire date by an extra year or refund.

    Thank you for the reply Shari. The message is received and understood. Good business model that wants to be professional and limit issues arising from misunderstandings. I think some posters can be so amazing that even google translate cannot contain them. They bring something that is hard to quantify but can be certainly troublesome to deal with. I know me personally, I enjoy various aisles in the grocery store to help me understand the business as a whole even if I am lactose intolerant. I certainly wouldn't ban milk but rather try to appreciate why others enjoy it. I do however realize that some are dinosaurs now and a new era is upon us. Great job here btw Shari. I hope the forum continues into greatness
