i was just checking the CM review list casino, and there are lots of casinos that used to be mentioned a lot in the former FS thread.
now, with the new rules, me probably won't share much cause - let's say lack of time - to search and copy/paste the affilate link
honestly, it takes maybe 10 to 30 seconds depending on how slow/fast you type. Personally, I see it as a very small trade-off to prevent the threads being shut down

Finding a casinos status on the site is a nightmare, other than trawling through each section manually, remembering to change it to ‘load all casinos’.

I used to use the toolbar add on when using my laptop but this doesn’t seem to work.

Is there a straightforward list (glance at type) anywhere?

while there's a direct link, I generally just type (google) the casino name review casinomeister and get it fairly fast, avoiding having to go trawling through the sections
might shave off a bit of time

In most forums usually the moderator would add the casino review link to members' posts. Clever thinking here - let the members do it themselves!

Agreed :p
And just to point out, noone is forcing members to click the link, nor use it (though of course, it's certainly great to do so for a multitude of reasons) and I can genuinely say, noone brought up trying to strategically get the members to do more work, but rather, so that moderators don't have to run around checking the thread nor correcting it because there's genuinely more important work for them to do doing, than essentially, well..babysitting the thread.

A huge part of the forum is self-policing; that is to say, knowledgeable members help other members, which is one of the MANY fantastic things about CM.
This not only cuts down on extra, unnecessary moderating (because members know what's expected of themselves and others) but BENEFITS the members by providing the freebies they want to solid, reputable casinos, in a simple, straightforward format.

(and I don't mind saying, the red also benefits those who don't want to wade through the banter)

This cannot be stressed enough - please post offers limited to FREE SPINS and to ACCREDITED and BAPTISM BY FIRE casinos ONLY (you may use grey zone casinos, but please use your common sense here).
Just wonder why? There is tens and tens of legit casinos who are not in your list. So we can't share that information anymore?

First, just to reiterate, I'm not staff here - I just volunteered (along with other members) to soundboard ways to keep the thread going.

To address your point, I'll just direct you to Bryan's comments here: Freebies 2019
I fully imagine the big guy himself, if not a mod or 2, will chime in when they aren't neck-deep in CM Awards and upcoming events.

Beyond that, all I can do is speculate.
One good reason is that likely, 'some' members will exercise poor judgement with the casinos they post freebies for (read: rogue).

With accredited and BBF casinos, we, as players, know the casinos are being, or have been vetted. And sure, there are some - arguably - good grey-zone casinos, hence the allowance for exercising good judgement.
Another, is threads like these become shill magnets.

Lastly, to the tens and tens of good casinos not listed here - bring these up.
In fact, there's a currently running thread here> Suggestions for new reviews
I'm sure @LadyJelena would greatly appreciate any feedback :)

Yes, Will Hill do have a review!

Sky were pitted once for affiliate term changes, but not player issues.

They're simply not here anymore, grey, rogue or otherwise. That would suggest CM doesn't have a business relationship for new players any more, so I would err on the side of caution until Bryan tells otherwise.
Where is the williamhill review as its not the casinoclub one?
I'm really uncomfortable with the suggestion that casinos without a business relationship have reviews removed, how can the site be impartial if a requirement to having a review, good or bad (and Skys was bad) is to have an affiliate agreement with them?

Really you should be taking up the minutiae re. each individual casino with Bryan.

We were simply following a few guidelines when we were allowed to post this thread.

At the moment we are playing it safe until he has time to address the issue - he said above in the quoted post he is very busy.

This thread is a trial run to test the water.

I'm sure it will develop in future more in line with people's expectations, but for now it is what it is.

You said they had a review, I posted the errors with the casinoclub one in the correct thread and was told it wasn't williamhill's review, then came back and asked for a link to it, whats wrong with that?
Anyway I'm out, too much hassle for me trying to guess then find which casinos have reviews and which have been removed.

Honestly, I'm surprised at all the resistance.
I wonder if anyone stops and reflects at all the time each and every staff member dedicates to things for members - Jelena with her promotions, dun with his moderating and reviews, Bryan, with well everything etc.
And all anyone is asking is for 15 seconds exta for something that is by members FOR members that CM a very short time ago, didn't even have at all. (ctl c ctl v highlight in red, done)
I've seen members scout 30 pages to point out well, HE said...

Noone is even saying it's something that will be cemented. But for now, it's a way so members can have the thread without mods having to trawl it every day for circumspect posts. It's a way NOW to get peoples heads around posting a simple freebie when words like STRICTLY, or admonishments, or thread closures didnt work
...while still trying to appease the masses (because for everyone who was happy the way it was, there were those as didnt)

Anyway, as dunover said, it is what it is...a way to keep the thread until Bryan has the proper time to sit back and decide utimately what he wants to do.

To me it feels like being stuck in the norty corner and being preached at how I am going to behave ...maybe you should listen to the members as what is easy for you obviously is not working for everyone.

Do you not remember the red marker pen at school, reminds me of that :laugh:

So what you really are irritated of are the fact you have to put a part in with red colour to help other members to see them a lot easier?
I bet it's difficult.

No! ....and please don't be condescending with me.

I said my opinion, simple as and if you had read back, you would have seen that was not the only problem.

If they would remove the templates and the colour and just asked you to post a link to a review would that feel better? Then I guess everyone should get at least half what they want.
Then it's just a link, but something Bryan feel is needed, but nothing else that tells you how to write the post.

I would love to see you post a free spins offer in 15 seconds extra on a mobile.
Takes me about 10 seconds to type '10 free spins on BoD at SlottyVegas'
takes longer than that to open the review page let alone find the link, copy it etc
then if its free spins at say a WHG site, and its available at say 4 of their brands, could be taking in excess of 5 minutes to post some free spins that would have previously took 10-15 seconds.

Jesus wept.

All this grumbling!

I say it again - YES! we know it isn't perfect, it's a work in progress and will develop.
People are working hard behind the scenes on this, the awards are being done too. Give us a break.

You don't have to keep repeating the same old beefs, they've been taken on board.

And FYI there may be a script in development written specifically for this thread to make it more efficient for the FS/NDP bonus posters in future.

For now, utmost apologies for the colossal inconvenience this new system has foisted upon people.

Okay I don't want to be rude or anything, you guys make great job. But I thought this forum is for users. And users decide how we talk and how we create this forum. Now it's just something totally else. I understand you need to maintain this forum somehow but it's totally stupid to prohibit promotional posts from basic users. No aff-links, no anything. Just sharing information. And thats not okay anymore. In my mind that's not the right way but yes, just my opinion.
