    Updated Forum Guidelines

    Hello SBR Members,

    Just a heads up that a few updates have been made to the forum guidelines and can be found on the FAQ page.

    https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/faq.php

    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.

    Hopefully something in there about lowering Gold’s post quota, his shtick has run its course.

    Andy, question for you, pal:

    *What are the benefits of signing up for Pro status?

    In the past, this was a no-brainer. I'll list three reasons (for starters):
    1) Chance to earmark Renewal Dollars to a (James) worthy charity.
    2) Chance to play in the Poker room.
    3) Chance to convert points into giftcards/cash.

    I'll listen to your answer. Thanks, pal.

    Here is what it says:

    Betpoints distributed through the forum are intended for positive contributions to the SBR community. This can include a well-written pick analysis, offering constructive feedback/site suggestions, or providing a helping hand to a new bettor.
    You can use the betpoints to give to other posters when they make a good post.

    Hi Andy,
    Many of the people left would like a firm date on when the Store will reopen and when there will be poker here again. We have been very patient with you but there has to be some transparency on your part. Vague statements every few months with no action following them is not a model for success. Could you please lay out your specific timetable and specifically what SBR is going to look like.
    Thanks

    Andy...longshot here: *Are you Andy "Fredo" Fezzik?

    As a representative for the SBR posters, I think I can say that we are reasonable. We don't ask for the world. We'd just like to feel like our Points have SOME value.

    Even if inflations diminishes 50% of their value, that would still leave 50% remaining. And I can say that the Poker room was fun, just to relax and bullshit with your buddies.

    Sbr will lose alot of traffic by removing the service plays forum especially during the football season.

    Loosing website traffic is never a good thing.

    Hi ChuckyTheGoat,

    Our product team is working towards finalizing a long-term strategy for betpoints/pro status/poker/store that will touch on each of your 3 points. Rest assured, there will be value to points and benefits to Pro membership. I know it has been a bit of a waiting game for you and the SBR members, but we appreciate your patience. We will share these plans once they are ready to go.

    Hi EmpireMaker,

    I definitely agree - our loyal SBR members have been very patient during this transition and it doesn't go unnoticed. I am here to provide as much transparency as possible during this process. While I am unable to pinpoint a firm date for store re-opening, as I mentioned in my reply to Chucky, we are getting closer to a finalized plan there. Once that is ready for roll-out, we will layout a timetable of what to expect.

    P.S. 15K posts on the number - giddy up!

    Andy - Don't mean to bombard you with questions.... but SBR posters have always been excited during football season with BTP (Beat The Prick) and a chance to win prizes making football picks. Does the new company plan on continuing with the exact contest? Similar but lower cash prizes? Or no contest at all? Thank you.

    Banning tout posts is fantastic. Thank you.

    Banning discussion of 3rd party payouts is something I don't like at all. This is very useful information for sports bettors.

    Please clarify the future of betpoints for us. Are they only a form of showing "positive contributions to the SBR community" or will they have a tangible value the way they used to?

    Yes, contests will definitely remain a big part of SBR. We look forward to offering some exciting competitions this fall for football season. Stay tuned for format and prize details.

    Hi Ian,

    Issues with sportsbook deposits and withdrawals are welcomed to be discussed. That part more touches on explicitly posting your banking/financial details.

    As for betpoints, yes they will have a tangible value. Ways to earn & redeem will be clearly laid out once the long-term plan is finalized.

    Here is the issue. Sometimes things get heated on the forum and clothes can come flying off. Sexual innuendos can start flying such as all in's, jackhammering plays, polish middles etc and this makes things difficult to moderate. I hope politics doesn't transcend the forum and we start calling each other pronouns and the like. People have a passion and the forum needs to be rational about handing out yellow and red cards or else this place will morph into a prison. Plays will start being discussed using dugout signals while in the lunch line and everyone will be paranoid of the watchtower's all seeing eye. Some may already be making shanks as we speak to carve out a tunnel in case things go bad.

    Having said that, I have faith that the forum is going to be even better than before. Adjustment period is frustrating but I hope the regulars stick with it and enjoy what SBR has in store.
