I'm setting up a new forum section - sort of an archive - of important and often referred to threads. Several pending categories are Online Casinos, Poker, Complaints, Industry Issues, Meltdowns and other Oddities, Technical Help...

If you have any suggestion on categories or if you have threads that you'd like to see showcased, please post them here :D

I think this is a pretty spiff idea, might help overcome a longstanding prob where threads that people often talk about, or refer to, are hard to find. Now they could be gathered in one place.

The idea is that significant threads from around the forums would be gathered here, and markers would be left in the original forum linking to the thread in the archive. That way if you went looking for the original you'd find the marker and be able to follow that through to the thread itself.

Just thought a few words on how B envisioned this would be useful.

Hmm...I'm Thinking, maybe one of the sub-sections could be Land Based Casinos/Online?

Where some of the important threads regarding the UIGEA and some of the Land Based Casinos maybe coming online soon such as Harrahs threads could be stored.

Will you just be taking it upon yourselves to decide which threads get archived in there or is there going to be a meeting that I will need to be present at for discussion? :confused:

This will probably fall under the "Industry" category.

This is why I started this thread - to get your input, so welcome to the meeting :thumbsup: :drink:

BTW - this was an idea posed by Rusty via a PM to me that I never had a chance to answer :p

LoL, ok...:D so I just didn't know if I should get dressed up or not. That was a good idea on Rusty's part and good of you to implement it. Should be a great new section for quick reference. :thumbsup:

Please add (acepedro's) thread about virtual not paying him the 100k plus for years with little reason, we want all the new meister heads to know that one.Maybe a virtual thread of its own with all the antics over the past years. I know you got it out in the other section about them but I think the meister heads would read it more being a sticky thread or something.

the playtech issue with the progressives.

obviuosly a thread with " the most outstanding topics" or something like that, "the most discussed" could be another.

Just basically the ones that had a lot of responses and or viewed on them.

There has been some really juicy cases in the past two years..

could throw CAP in there but I know you dont want that stuff in your house and could cause more issues.

Maybe threads for each software platform such as MG,RTG, rival and the rest and any new news updates or anything add to that section.

Sorry mate got heaps of ideas and am just tping them as i go.

In my brief time @ CM, gaming fairness (the question of) has always been the most significant issue for me. There are 2 ,iirc, initial Absolute Poker threads that are must reads along with some of the most impressive,intelligent and informative posts one will experience! JMO!

Thanks! If you'd post the URLs, that would be really cool.

Admin note - there are 11 years worth of posts here - could be interesting.

11 years worht would be a little tedious im sure, maybe have a cut of period for say 5 years or something. Only add the ones that are relivent to whats going on now, for example the virtual one would go back almost 11 years and would be good to put in there as it does affect people still to this day.

That was said (written) strictly tongue and check :p

Besides, the way old threads are all mashed together so they don't make too much sense. But it's sometimes fun to go back searching for stuff - like the first time the term "rogue casino" was used (yes, I coined the phrase :p). Or some of the silly shit that went on back then. The oldest thread that will probably be showcased is the infamous "Pirate" thread from January 2004. :D

Microgaming white label issue from August of 2007:

http://www.casinomeister.com/forums...sion/19166-microgaming-white-label-issue.html

Jackpot Factory Inspirational Stories from May of 2006:

http://www.casinomeister.com/forums...9-jackpot-factorys-inspirational-stories.html

IMO, Rival deserves a whole section of its own...but for now, the Progressive debacle along with the discovery of them being white label operations (for the most part). From May of this year:

http://www.casinomeister.com/forums...ne-million-reels-bc-204-167-54-hit-today.html

And because it's still ongoing, and still with MANY unanswered questions...the Topgame thread regarding their software "issues" (and I use that word reluctantly). From last month:

http://www.casinomeister.com/forums...ssues/31796-topgame-slots-rogue-software.html

It's a good idea, but I'm afraid I've come to the conclusion that most people/players just don't care who does what....as long as it doesn't affect them directly. JMO.

Bryan, also maybe you could sub-categorize the threads by software provider too for ease of finding a particular software platform thread.

IE:
MGS
RTG
Rival...etc. etc.
