RATINGS AND REVIEWS is a new shining star. We became a bit lax with updating recommended and not so recommended books over the years, so I think the idea of letting the posters control the ratings was a very good one. Who cares what a forum`s staff says? Not many.. most prefer what other forum members have to offer, so it only makes sense. We are depending on you all to help us make this the best sportsbook ratings "for the people, by the people" ever, so keep those reviews coming!
WEEKLY CHAT Most of you know we welcome in-game and any impromptu chats, but our old stand-by Wednesday night weekly chats with sportsbook reps and industry leaders have become increasingly popular. If you miss a chat you will find the list of archived chats on our home page.
DISPUTE ARBITRATION We have always received requests for help, or posters just plonk beefs in the messhall. We tried a formal mediation panel, which was very good, only nobody ever requested it. It has been business as usual for the past few years... emails from newbies and regulars or the occasional mess hall "help" post, ot a flat out "XYZsports SUCKS!" thread. This has resulted in some wild forum battles that pretty much do nobody any good. We decided what was needed was another volunteer arbitration panel at MW, with new and improved direction. We will still continue to try and solve basic mediations by playing middleman between book and players, but if we can`t come to a satisfying resolution, these cases will be turned over to the OGC (offshoregamingcouncil.com) which will be run independently from MajorWager. I don`t think anyone can find fault, pick as they might, with the crew who has volunteered to oversee this endeavor.
MAJORSTATS- powered by Don Best Not only has Don Best given us a free premium service account to use for forum members questions about past and present lines, injuries, etc., but they are totally revamping majorstats, and I`m told it will be an AWESOME tool. Rick from Don Best has requested input from posters here, so if you haven`t posted what stats, or anything special you would like included, check this thread and post it here.
Last but not least.. a forum software upgrade, coming soon!!
