    The SALOON??? WTF???

    I click on a thread & end up in "the saloon"??? SBR is gettin' fuked up. A lounge, a saloon, is this a forum or a fukin theme park???

    Why is SBR doing this? PT is PT, its home base for the core base, dont try to change that by sending our threads somewhere else

    i guess the plan is to move everything from players talk to the saloon to make it look like the saloon is not a spittoon

    Chatter about betting, handicapping = Players Talk
    Anything else = Saloon

    When it was called General Discussion, they were warning you what they would do. Be thankful. Some would have started then with moving, and then issuing infractions right away.

    Go tOSU.

    that's what i have been saying. SBR would get a few more sign ups from people if they made players talk private for Pro's only and it might help cut down on the ghosting if one of them was private.

    You cannot conduct SERIOUS BUSINESS in a friggin' saloon!!

    pt still commands about 20x more traffic then the spittoon, if not more.

    but i guess sbr is content with occupying moderator work time with thread moving all day.

    will be awaiting the business protocol answer from sbr john or a staff member:

    "give it some time guys, like the point and pro programs there was resistance but people eventually came around and they are a success"

    Amy time there is a change part of the audience won't like it and they're the most vocal. Any company worth a salt will listen and use the feedback but sometimes you decide to still go forward. There were people who hated it when we sub-forum'd out the sports topics and mirrored sports threads there to be seen in one place...but it works. We are tweaking the format here too.

    There are thousands of new handicappers who see the board daily and have a lot to offer to the community. We want to give em a good first impression when they open our top forum. A lot of posters also asked for a cleaner Players Talk.

    The Profit,
    Which thread redirected you? If the topic was moved to the Saloon and you click it, yes, you will follow it in there.

    meh i think i like the saloon. I think only gambling talk in the players talk.(and dad's threads too ). It sux scrolling through like 3 pages of threads and seeing like 85% of the threads be BS. Not a big deal, but im not against Saloon is all.

    don't be fooled each time they move a thread to the saloon it gives the appearance that the saloon is becoming it's own place.

    Your asking the wrong person...but maybe I ought to find out, since a lot of people think I chose my handle b/c of my love for "Eddie Money" rather than my name and my love for Money Lines...haha

    Yes, evidently enough for a greatest hits, which is pretty great. What I don't get is why does he look like he's wearing one of JJ's wigs?
