I've moved the two monstrous threads "Winner Screenshots" and "Screenshots that Suck" into their own forum here:
https://www.casinomeister.com/forums/#screenshots.112

Even though screenshots are casino related, it's more of an extracurricular activity, and I'd like the Online Casino section to remain focused on its main topic. This will also keep the forum better organized and on track. It will also allow additional threads and comments concerning screenshots.

I also turned off the Thanks button in the Screenshot section (boo hiss - I can hear it already :D). The reason for this is that some members post primarily in this thread - nothing wrong with that - but their rep points are going through the roof, and I'd like them to participate in meatier subjects in other sections where "thanks" count for rep points. I hope you understand where I'm coming from.

All thanks that have been previously given in these threads still count. They have not been removed from your total reputation score.

:axeman: To be honest with you I think this is a bit of a silly idea; it makes it more of a hassle to get to the screenshots & now I will not look at the other threads in "Online Casinos" mainly because I normally come to check out great screenshots. And hey, I liked thanking people. :( Getting thanks makes me feel special :(

But hey, it's your forum, do whatever the hell you want. You could take away everyone's rep and rename us with cleverly devised prostitute names.

I hope that scrolling down a half a page isn't too much of an inconvenience :rolleyes:

The forum "Online Casinos" is just that - it's about discussing online casinos. Screenshots of casinos/poker rooms ought to be placed in a separate section. If looking at screenshots is your primary interest, now you have an exclusive forum just for that :thumbsup:

nope I think it's a good idea Bryan.

I personally use the rep points to determine the knowledge and the honesty of there posts.
If people are only getting them becuase of screenshots then you dont really know if they have much knowledge of the whole online gaming stuff or what they are telling you has any weight behind it.
the communtiy as a whole are the ones who give the rep points so they are a good indicator of who gets them and who doesn't.

maybe put a "wow" buton there or a "great screenshot" one.

I reckon they should see the bigger picture here- those rep points are important for the new player or any one that wants an honest answer.

Thinking about this some more, I think you still want to look into the whole screenshot section Bryan and put something else in place instead of the thank you.
It is a popular section and the posters do like to let them know of the good win so maybe another button like what I said above could be something to look into.

:thumbsup:

your doin an awesome job though buddy your listening to the community and that's why your site is so good.

Thanks for the kudos. :D

By the way, I may have a solution for putting something else in place for thanking. What should I call it - a "Wow" button?

If anyone has a suggestion on what it should be named - I'm listening.

We're going to end up with a Bitchin' button, aren't we? :D lol

Seriously though, it's a good idea to change things, as long as you replace the button or just disable rep points on thanked posts in that thread. ;)

I agree, a "WOW" or "WTG" button would be good for those that like to hit it (the button).

I, personally, stopped popping in the screenshot section everyday since the shots were becoming a bit tiresome and old with not so great shots or winnings being posted.

I do love the fact that there is a 5 scatter/5 wild thread to make it more interesting...even if the payout sucks on those , you still have a great screenie! :D

Just my thoughts...no offense to anyone....

"WTG" sounds good to me!
And how about a 'Boo Hiss' button for people posting shots of less than 100/1... :p

On a more serious note;
When you moved 'Complaints' out of the main section I found that I very, very rarely looked at those threads, though I used to a lot before.
I fear the same will happen with 'Screenshots', not just for me, but with other posters too. I hope I'm wrong, but this could lead to an overall decline in member activity and posting on other topics in the main casino section... :(

And most seriously; I really think both Winner & Sucks threads should be in the same forum, not separate sub-forums as you have it set up now.
Also, can you move the '5 wilds / scatters' thread in there too please?

Cheers!

I would use a button that represents:

Way to go! and Good job! and WOW! with the understanding that I'm really thinking "thanks a lot asshole for making me feel worse about that lame feature I just got". :p

I agree KK. I liked it much better when complaints were in the main section and i too have a feeling this may not have the intended effect, but hey im just an old dog who hates learning new tricks:)

For the Winner Screenshots thread, the button should say "WTG!"
For the Screenshots that Suck thread, the button should say "WTF!"

By the way, nice enhancement! :D

The problem is - when a forum grows like this one has, it needs to expand. Before, it was merely casino complaints in one sub-forum. Now there are six sub-forums - and this is needed to keep the site organized. People have to learn to scroll down or use the search functions :D

WTG has my vote, thats a good one

That's short and to the point. Get's my vote too.

For the Winner Screenshots thread, the button should say "WTG!"
For the Screenshots that Suck thread, the button should say "WTF!"

By the way, nice enhancement! :D
'nother personal touch in meisterland... :p

Done. We now have a WTG button that's exclusively in the screenshots' section. It's also listed in your profile like the "Thanks" is. :thumbsup:

I use to think the same thing until my funds ran a little low and could only deposit so much - it was fun to go for the 100x bet rule. If I could get a 80.00 win on a .20 bet I think thats kinda cool. I still long for the day I can bet 45.00 a hand a get a 50K win.

i still think all screenies are cool, when you have made money on any size bet and are ahead and having fun, 100x are awesome screenshots but just as good if it was a 50 or 25 x times bet to the person playing who wants to share their screenie, just my opin.:) i like the new button by the way:thumbsup:

The only problem is the page now refreshes when clicking either "WTG" or "Thanks".

It's no big deal but it can cause you to lose your place since the page does not refresh to the same post you were reading........but maybe that's just because I have it set to 30 posts per page instead of 10.
