    That's exactly how I feel! Although I love watching people in Atlantic City pump quarters into those machines while I walk around in a new outfit.

    Is there any interest in doing point spreads? CoP is perfect for that.

    For example, the odds are pretty good that Belbin and Agosto will win U.S. Nationals, so there's no particular reason to bet on that. But by how many points? I don't gamble so I'm a little hazy about how these things are worded, but shouldn't it be something like B/A +12 if you think they'll win by at least 12 points?

    I'm making this up as I go along, but I always figured gamblers would love CoP because it would make skating a gambler friendly sport. And point spreads, unlike hair styles, are quantifiable.

    does anybody know...

    What happened to my vbookies? They used to work, but now I have errors on each of the vbookie links and cannot see the polls.

    Thanks,
    Kim

    has it something to do maybe with the rep power? (i don't know what that means.. )

    Some threads you can only bet on once. Some might have already closed, and that is why you can't bet?

    If you were looking to bet one or more of the GP 'overall season' vBets, I've extended their deadlines to Friday 10/26 ~noonish (MDT time).

    You have a season pass, that doesnt mean you can use this feature.

    Hello! No particular rush, but if any admin can figure out why I can't seem to bet anymore... that would be great! Thought I'd give it a bit of time to straighten out, but it's been a couple of weeks, so I know it's not me. Did the vbookie part of my subscription expire? Did you think I'd have inside info for Jr. World's so you prevented me from betting? (Well, I don't... even so, I think a few million vbucks compensation is in order ).

    I think we should add an over/under vbet. Like a football spread. IE Like in dance
    D&W, V&M score 14 points more then the rest of the field. If you bet under 13 point speard then you would lose. If you bet more then 14 you would win.
    Someone can adverage the point spread from the previous season or the current season (or season best scores)and use the point difference to create the over and under. I would be willing to do it.
    Yeah I know I waited for the last event to do it.

    Hi - Just in case someone other than Sharpie or Prancer try to resolve my issue posted on 3/12 -- it's resolved. Said Admins cleared it up -- my mistake.

    Can I ask a quick question here - are we going to have bets on the NHK Cup? It starts next week and I couldnt find betting post - it's all politics and football.

    Thanks for the reminder - bets will be up in the next 24 hours. Any other suggestions appreciated.

    Edited: NHK bets are now up. Bets for whatever the next GP event is will go up after NHK concludes.

    Just a reminder that suggestions for new bets are always welcome. For example, peibeck came up with the Golden Globe/Oscar nomination ideas. Feel free to PM me with ideas and even suggested odds.

    Well I can't even figure out HOW to bet. It says I have 500 cash and I've clicked all over the place and can't figure out how or where to bet.

    Click on one of the currently open bets and see if you can enter a wager next to any of the individual choices in that bet. Each individual choice should have a box next to it where you can type anything from 0 to 500 in your case.

    If you can't, that means you can't bet. vBets are a feature open only to premium supporters of the board.

    Quite simply, have you donated to the forum recently?

    You should know this yourself. If you don't, then to check if you have:

    1) Click on "Settings" in the upper right corner of any page
    2) In the following page, click on "Paid Subscriptions" in the bottom-most left hand box
    3) On the next page, there will be a box up top called "Active Subscriptions" which shows the type of paid subscription you have (if any). The type of subscription you must have is "FULL Premium Access."
    4) If you don't have this full premium subscription, then select it from the options below and donate/subscribe if you wish to do so. Or, if you have some type of paid access, but not "FULL Premium Access," PM a moderator to ask if you can top up your subscription fee to achieve "FULL Premium Access."

    Most questions about subscriptions have already been explained in the "Board Business" section. Please review the stickied FAQs here:
