Last part bang on. It's same mod who seems to thibk he needs to answer to everyone's single post. Which in turn causes these issues.

Not sure why he feels the need to be so active in responding to everything when it clearly doesn't require a staff response.
pretty much been as participatory when the name was a different colour
you know like most active members;
youd pretty much only know if I'Im responding or participating in threads if you happen to be in those threads as well so I fail to see the problem there.

got a beef? you know who runs the site
click here, > @Casinomeister

oh? and ftr? I've never laid a warning or infraction..EVER.. not even ONCE, so you can take that up with them; pretty certain they're aware how and why issues arise and who the general culprits are.
Me? I've been here 10 years and havent received one.

I'd suspect it means I'm, and others, are familiar with the posring rules.
If you feel otherwise, you know who to reach out to
hint: he's the big boss
Everyone can complain about my modding all they want. The fact is I get reports, it's my responsivility to respond to them, and what...99.9% of the time it's 'please keep it civil'.
I'm such an ogre. :rolleyes:

as for participating? Like..everyone does? Well, yeah, I like participating. And people participate back. I'm still a member here.

But it's all really here nor there.
I'd say let's all keep it to the thread topic at hand and if anyone has any issues, they know how to reach the upper staff.
Otherwise this will just likely get binned or closed.

What a worthwhile contribution to this given the context of what has been posted during the last 24 hours or so

Well. This thread I'm afraid stems from some misunderstandings and miscommunications, mostly on my part.

I think what I was trying to imply earlier was that it was clear to me that a number of MMs had experiences with this casino, as well as others, and I was hoping that these experiences would be added in the Meister Minion rating forums. This way I (or Dionysus) could transfer those comments to the official reviews.

The Casinomeister reviews are essential here - they are NOT just my opinions, but YOURS. Many Meister Minions are playing at loads of casinos - posting experiences here, but not in the MM section which eventually end up in the official reviews.

Examples:

Here we have a number of MMs participating: :thumbsup:
Videoslots Casino ️ : Best Online Casino 2018 - Casinomeister Reviews

Bitstarz has none: :(
Bitstarz Casino ️ Trusted & Updated Info | Casinomeister® Reviews

Fun Casino has none: :(
Fun Casino Review: Now Accredited Casino!

And I am sure there are a number of Minions - at least five of you - that have accounts there and that could offer a valid opinion.

I certainly don't expect people to deposit on my behalf to do a review.

What I may do is send x amount to volunteers via Paypal in order to do a review. If you win anything - keep it. Perhaps this is a solution - but then it's something else I need to manage.

As for listing casinos in the grey zone - we need to list as many as possible mainly to feed the C2O data base that you folks should be using. It's a free tool that gives you information about a casino's status at Casinomeister. If the casino has no review (Accred, GZ or Rogue) it's not going to appear there.

Concerning not announcing these casinos unless they have a rep is a valid point, and I think that this will be a requirement in the future. I just need to emphasize that they are not Baptism by Fire candidates. IN fact, some casinos are ineligible - like this lot.

When I saw your PM I gave a review the best I could, having not played there and knowing I won't. My experience with Jumpman is terrible due to their affiliates constantly spamming and the individual casinos doing nothing, and jumpmans DPO totally ignoring any emails. If a DPO ignores legal requests then good luck getting anywhere if there is a problem when they have your money. There was nothing else I could write, then it sounded as if the one liner I wrote wasn't good enough, but anything else would have just been bluster, as there was nothing else to say.

I don't have an account at Bitstarz, I don't have an account at Fun Casino. The way things are at the moment I rarely sign up at new casinos, as the places I play at now are trustworthy and have all the games I need. Admittedly there are casinos who don't have loads of data that I could review, and will do so, but I'm moving house at the moment so will have to be in a few weeks.

I get where you are going with 'you don't need to play there to give a review' but being honest, theres only so much anyone can say without signing up. You don't really need 20 MM's stating it accepts debit cards, skrill and paypal, has PlaynGo, Netent, Blueprint, site looks ok, UKGC license etc. That can be done by the person who's doing the review. What's important is do they pay quickly without problem, do the games work, does live chat work in the hours stated, do support know what they are doing etc. None of that can be done without signing up and playing. I also get that you want to have as many casinos in the database as possible, so that you can have a full list and where they stand.

For the larger clone groups, where all the casinos are exact clones, use the same support etc, could you not maybe have a group, and have people review from within there, then you have data and as every casino are operated exactly the same, the review can be identical too. For example Aspire Global, they are all 100% identical. They share support, they share back office staff, share payment processing teams, verification teams etc. I'm sure a lot of people will have played at one of their properties at least. You could group them all together and probably get 10 x the reviews you would have by having 50+ casinos all listed separately. If by chance one casino in the group doesn't operate exactly as the others, that would be apparent from the reviews and could be separated if required?

As for Colin, I think his ban is a bit harsh, yes calling Dion a prick was obviously OTT but Colin was clearly frustrated and he was the only one out of everyone who read the thread who actually went to the effort of spending his money and taking the time to properly test the casino and feedback the rubbish experience he had there. Dion's comments haven't exactly been non inflammatory at times, and although I don't think he meant them in the way they were took, I do think they could have been taken wrong. Like this one 'fwiw - id take a handful of Harry's insights over a 100 in many case'. When I read that I thought, well screw you too, just get Harry to do all the reviews, what are you asking anyone else for their opinion for if thats the case? In hindsight I realise thats not what he meant, but on first reading thats how it came across to me. As Col was already frustrated with the casino he was trying out because of this thread, I can completely understand why he would snap. Col's hardly a trouble maker, I don't think I've seen him post anything similar in all the time I've been here. Ultimately, him trying to help earned him a ban, in my view.

Apologies. I was complimenting Harry on his breadth of knowledge, not in any way trying to minimize anyone e;lse's insights.
The discussion was Harry felt he hadnt much to offer not having signed up.
It was meant to express his contribution would still be valuable.

I know that, which is why I said in hindsight that you didn't mean it in the way it came across, the point is though, that I took at as having a go at the rest when I first read it, and so did Colin clearly, and when already frustrated by what was happening at Spin Hill, that was only happening because this thread was posted, I think a little leeway could have been applied thats all.

After calling a staff member a twat, a shill and a prick? I think not. 2 weeks is giving leeway IMO. Frustrated or not gordie needs to find another way to express himself.

It has been quite a number of days now since I posted my review which consisted a number of factual details which are inconsistant to the important data that we are provided with still if you look at the latest content for this casino
As the only person from the miesters that has bothered to deposit,play through and impart data to that effect I am now feeling more loth to take part as my input seems worthless.It did not even get a like from any mod.
All of that drama from all of those mods and my contribution is ignored despite the person who is responsible for minion data contributions being in here every day for endless hours on end.
And on top of that I have just completed a review of my experience in the latest casino that we have been introduced to!
Why should I bother?
Income orientated.

As it goes I have put a a futher 700 spins over what should have been the conversion to real money at twice the minimum wager. It still shows as bonus money.
I will leave it there for tonight and seek my questions tomorrow.
I play in this casino and the bonus is accumulated. It can never be made in real money. Only if you turn it over the first time, then every subsequent bonus accumulates. It will only be zeroed if you withdraw your real money.It only reset if you withdraw your real money. And it starts to accumulate again, I play in several casinos with this brand and I can responsibly claim that the bonus accumulates and can never be converted to real money.

It's f*&^ing easy - you can review casinos without signing up. You can scan their website - see what games they offer, see where they are licensed, see who they are connected to. As an experienced gambler you can make these observances without signing up. You are giving advice to your fellow members and our visitors which we transfer to the review page. To think that signing up is a requirement is quite short sighted in my opinion.

If you don't want to participate in the MMs - just let me know.
In all honesty - I didn’t know you wanted review Too from non-players On the casino’s.

knowing that, I can contribute more

for sure, even good when people point out good (or poor) Ts and Cs, if your country is eligible, site navigation, etc
