Hello forum members, :)


With the end of '05 coming to a close, I thought it would be interesting to find out more about things that fell-off the "forum" radar (over the course of the year). I welcome you all to add to this list (w/comments of course), about things which occured here and we haven't heard about them since. This topic can cover, people/forum members, winnings, money issues, customer support, specific casinos, unresolved complaints, ect...


To kick-things-off, this is what this enquiring mind wants to know:


A)
"2brnot2b and her $75,957.84."


At first I thought this case was some kind of prank, seeing that she had won all of that money playing "Queen Of The Pyramids" over at a PlayTech. But, from what I understand, it's all true. We came to learn that she had agreed to be paid in segments on a monthly basis (as opposed to one giant lump sum). The question looming, has she been fully paid yet?


B)
"Bruce Hamilton"


While I've never had the pleasure of having any direct reply/chat in any thread with Bruce, during his brief stay here, the man put up a helluva-lot-of posts (at the rate he was going, I figured he'd have the most posts here by early '09). We even got to see the man behind the mask. After revealing his photo, a joke followed wondering if he was in fact dead. Now, with his mysteriously not posting anything for quite some time now, did he in fact pass away?

Serious note: Hope he's okay, as I always enjoyed his colorful responses. :)



C)

"CASINOMEISTER VS. SPEARMASTER Winner Screenshots"


This would later evolve into Simmo! versus Slotster (with the help of Gramma's postings, specifically the GIANT progressive win on Treasure Nile to the tune of $102,969.09, wherein Slotster laid down the challenge in post #1856), which would later evolve into what it is now Slotjunkies.info (and as of today, Simmo! versus w2album versus realwtfsup).


Getting back to this heading, there was quite a stretch where we were seeing Royal Flushes abound. We don't see many postings from Casinomeister or Spearmaster's Winner Screenshots these days. Is it safe to assume that the great luck has dried-up for the both of them? My guess, is that they're just too busy these days. Hey, I haven't hit a Royal Flush since the 1st quarter of '05 (where I managed to hit 4, although only 1 was for $4,000 at a PlayTech no less, and another was for the .05 cent minimum over at BoDog... woof!!).


Sidenote: It sure seems like there were more big wins in the 1st quarter of '05 (until the beginning of the summer), as opposed to now. Truth or not, don't know, just seems that way.

Sidenote II: Never, never, EVER play VP at an RTG for the .05 cent minimum. I won a whopping $6.25 for that. Heck, like I couldn't have been playing max hands EVEN for the .05 cent minimum? BIG error on my part. Grrrrrrrrrr...


D)

"Forum members who came and left, all-too-early." :(


A short-list would include:

- dunarunnin (nope, you still B runnin')
- maerek (perhaps eaten by a SHARK ;) )
- debzy (1-and-out)
- dancer (1-and-out)

They've all mysteriously vanished. :confused:


Feel free to add more. I was thinking about adding the list with all the posters who've been fortunate enough to have been banned this year. Now THAT would be a colorful list. :D

Bruce Hamilton

I believe Bruce Hamilton is alive and well and posting at "This Casino Sucks" forum. From what I hear, Mr. Hamilton was offended by some posters here and decided to switch bases (WHAT??).:eek2: :eek:

Thanks suzecat,


Glad to hear that (not about the part where he decided to "switch bases" though). :) I'm sure lots of people would love to have him back here. He's been one of the most prominent posters over the past several months (minus the time he's been AWOL).

Well, that takes care of question B (and it's only been 29 minutes since starting this thread).

I think the "Winner Screenshots" thing may also be down to originiality. I know that I for one don't posta lot of my screenies as they have been "seen ebfroe" a number of times. Only when i hit something unusual do i post now.

As for the Meister and Spear, i know for a fact they are very busy but I'm sure they'll stop by :D

No idea. But she was last visiting here at the end of November.

I'm in the dark here since I don't bother keeping up with board wars, feuds, spats, and other personal meanderings. I find it odd when people apparently fall off the edge of the world.

Didn't know there was a contest. :D I do know that I decided to do most of my serious "Beer system" wagerings at the casinos Spear had affiliate accounts with (the same with Simmo!). This was for shits and giggles. And there were a slew of some good screen shots. But most of you are correct when imagining how busy we are. I'm a busy guy.

And I haven't had a something good pop up for a while - that is good enough for a screen shot. I've had some great wins with Spring Break, Thunderstruck, and Ladies Nite. But these were from the free spin mode and not worth the screen shot. I am due a Royal Flush though... :D

Confused too. But that's the nature of this board sometimes. Especially when one comes here to complain. They join, they complain, they hope for resolution. They leave. Look at all the bonus whore posters for instance. Probelm with Integrity Casinos? They join and complain - that's it. Problem with Joyland? They come, complain, that's it. Not that it bothers me; that's just their nature.

As for some of these above mentioned posters - those who have happy clappy posts about some casino...well who knows what gets them to join and then disappear. Maybe they were frightened off, or they just got bored :D

I can oblige you with that. Give me a day or two. :D

HOFFMAN? Good question. With those millions of Euros sitting around, he ought to visit me wish list :D

I agree with Tim. This is a valuable post. In fact,Johnsteed does put a lot of effort in his threads/posts and many of the older posters just pale in comparison.

Hey, ah... Wow. :oops: Thank you kindly chuchu59 (and tim5ny). Those are very kind words. :) Let's remember that "johnsteed" would never have chosen Casinomeister.com without that ol' guard in place. I ah, wouldn't want to polarize myself into oblivion by disrespecting the older posters. :D It could get REAL ugly. ;) Nevertheless, big thanks! :thumbsup:

I figure my avatar is in black & white, my postings will look too pale. I have to compensate for that somehow...

Hey!!!! I suggested that last week, that JohnSteed should win an award...never thought of the MVP (Most Valuable Poster). Very good Tim, lol. Anyway, JS has my vote, hands down. I don't know how he keeps track of all this stuff.

Hello fellow forum members!


I thought I would get the ball rolling with some of...

"Those who've been banned"

Here's a short-list:


- MUSTbet - Spammer/violation of posting rule 1.3 :notworthy


- Gregamble - "a"-hole spammer :notworthy


- markizu - 'Nuff said (go to thread NOW):notworthy


- esquirexx - My personal favorite, somehow eluded us into making it up to 82 posts (Golden Palace makes his fastest payouts list... moaahahahaha!!!) :notworthy


- "caruso" - 1 month (as I recall)


- "tdoggy" - 2 weeks (as I recall)


***

A short-list of those...

"I thought FOR SURE would have been banned but weren't"

They are:


- expertofpoke - Made it to 7 posts and vanished (and my guess is he/she would have been zapped into cyberspace just a little bit longer... my guess ;) )


- Elscrabinda - Nothing personal, just a wee bit controversial at times


- Vesuvio - Ditto (from what I can see, has been gone for some time)


*Ronald Reagan's famous words, "You can run, but you can't hide." :gunmen:


Sidenote: Since joining, I always thought FOR SURE I was going to get knocked-down a couple of times by caruso, but I was initiated (into Casinomeister.com, and not as harshly as others) by incumbent firestarters Vesuvio 1st and then Elscrabinda 2nd. Thank you gents! :thumbsup: And thank you for keeping people on their toes.

Sidenote II: Doctor Carlos of Panama (mysterious forum member) made great use of bold print while posting (FYI). We should remember how this particular forefather paved the way for the rest of us over here at Casinomeister.com.

Sidenote III: The white color doesn't work-out so well (white-on-white). If you can't read those words above, they say "Ronald Reagan".

Adding to my list of...

"Forum members who came and left all-too-early"

They would be:

- sal monella - not seen since July 26th, thus being WAY over the expired date... :puke:


- vinnybono - 3-and-out


- jinxface - 5-and-out


- expertofpoke - 7-and-out and making two lists :notworthy


***


Now a short-list of...

"Those who've 1-and-out'd us with their presence"
.


They would include:

- salcom

- golob

- Lestec

- ohioplayer

- rtmlam

- roryjc

- akirca

- steadman



Trivia: Can you guess which thread both salcom AND goldo appeared and disappeared in after posting back-to-back? I'll give the winner "4", that's right... "4" of my rep. power points, for the 1st person to get it right.

What ever happened to...

"tunisianswife"?


She hasn't been spotted here since Aug/'05? Anyone know why? Like Bruce Hamilton, she was putting-up quite a few posts here for some time.

P.S. Thank you for your kind words everybody. It's very much appreciated. :)

Two of the regular posters that I recall have not posted for some time are JPM and SW2003. Hope everything is fine with them.


I was going to mention SW2003, but that was a few days ago when I noticed that he and liquidsoap (when he recently changed) share the same avatar (and I seem to recall one other prominent poster does as well). Funny, how they just come and go.

You mean the tank in Major Millions. I think Liquidsoap only changed to this avatar recently. From the posts that I have read,SW2003 is really like his avatar ie very militant.
