    What will be the name of the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge's first baby?

    One bet only. Bet will be refunded/cancelled if, g*d forbid, the baby is not born. If more than one baby is born, then we will refer to the first-born baby.

    Ah, thanks. :p

    What would be some other good names? Poinsettia? Destinee? Camilla? ;)

    Michelle, of course! :D (Although I am don't think that's very likely.)

    Margaret was Elizabeth's sister, so that might be possible. Anything but Prudence! :lol:

    I'm partial to Lashawneequa or Caressandra. Or if you want a real life example .. Killashandra. She's the heroine in Anne McCaffrey books but also my neighbour's new baby girl .. they plan on calling her little "Killa" for short. I kid you not. :rofl:

    Since royals usually have more than one name, this bet will pay if the name we pick turns out to be the first one or also if it is anyone of the 3 or 4 extra names they choose to name him/her?

    It is the first name only, not the umpteen additional names.

    UMBS Go Blue, I know it's "one bet only" as you stated, but it's still showing this above the bets:

    I think it used to show something like "You may not bet on this event." after the bet was placed. It isn't giving another option where we can bet again. So, maybe this is just because of the new version of the message board.

    Thanks for bringing that up. Looks exactly like what you're describing - it's a fault of the new software where it still says you can bet when in fact you can't (as you should no longer be able to enter bets).

    I'm wary about tinkering with the vBookie code any further - since there had to be tweaks made to it to actually get the betting up and running - but I'll let Server Guy know.

    In the meantime, your ability to enter all possible bets (whether in one-bet-only threads or multiple-bets-allowed threads), while the threads are open, should be intact.

    Thanks! Yes, it's working perfectly and I've had no problem placing bets. :)
