Check the link that Meelis gave in post #12. It is due to the WTA complaining, the ATP apparently is not against virtual betting in the same way. People have often wanted to use the credits for something. We have asked the webmaster about this before, and it is apparently being looked at. No luck there so far however.

Re: What are the credits?

I just noticed that v-Bookie is still listed here even though we don't have it so maybe it is just listed on the other Forums, but they don't have it either? So I also think the listing of v-Bookie should be removed from this site. It could be considered as false advertising to list an activity that is not actually here!

Time for another webmaster then. Either that or time for another administrator.

Re: What are the credits?

Perhaps you could allow users to transfer credits from this forum over to their menstennisforum.com account?

That is an idea, but I don't know how it could be done? I understand the legal problem with the site's former name, but I don't see how since this site is not connected to the WTA they can tell this Forum that we can't have vBookie?

Re: What are the credits?

Bingo! I'm slow, but I finally figured out why the WTA didn't want us to be able to use v-Bookie! The credits are earned by posting here at the Forum. And the WTA figured wrongly that people would stop posting or at least not post as often due to the lack of use for the credits! I really do think this issue should be revisited myself! Years have gone by since the name change and I think we should try to take action to get v-Bookie back!

Re: What are the credits?

Let's think of a good use (maybe betting could fly now) and then start a petition?

The other thing that I've thought about was since you can "DONATE" your credits, would be starting a new game where you wager your credits. So it'd be like a virtual bookie but since it isn't the "management" doing it, then perhaps it could fly.

Alternatively, you could have a prediction tournament where you buy-in and get back a pay-off based on the results.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

I have already been told by James that v-Bookie can not come back! So that is out as an option and I'm not a very creative person myself so I have no idea what can be done with those credits! But I will say if they aren't being used for anything at all I think they should be gone from the Forum. I also think the word "vBookie" should be removed from the site. As I'm typing this I'm looking at the word "vBookie", which we don't have and will never have again.

I don't guess tripler will be banking any credits? I was going to Rep him for this post, but the Rep button isn't there. So I guess tripler isn't here? And with all that Red in the Rep area I can understand why!

Re: What are the credits?

I have to say that the fact we keep getting credits, but can't use them is the only thing I don't like about the Forum!

Re: What are the credits?

That's just it you can't use vBookie here because we aren't allowed to, but what they were talking about was being able to send over and use the credits in vBookie at MTF where vBookie is allowed. But it was never decided, if that could actually be done or not And, of course, if you don't have an account at MTF you wouldn't have any use for the credits anyway.
