Re: Rules, FAQ and Best Of Threads (READ BEFORE POSTING) [Don't troll in strat threads.]

Oh, and one more thing. Get involved in your local degenerate community! Have no connection with the mods and the forum old-timers? Start calling for someone you like to become a mod. Start stuff you want to see in the forum (I think "more strategy!" pushes have had mediocre success because they've been top down). There's a bit of a vacuum right now for the "I want to be the regular user who starts running random contests/post consistently good LC thread pics" roles or whatever it may be, point being, there's a lot of room to make this forum whatever the hell you want it to be.

Crosspost from regs thread:

Can we please split HUSNG subforum into micro/mid/high stakes like all the other forums have their splits?

I'm not sure how comparable we are to other games (for example STT, Hu cash don't split by stakes, MTT, NL cash, LHE cash do), probably somewhere in between those that split and those that do not in terms of popularity.

I'm not so sure this would help us myself, but if everybody wants something we can work together and come up with a logical plan and present that to the admins and go from there.

Beginner's HUSNG versus "Other" (would need a better name obviously) might be preferable to HS, MS, LS for our forum, but I'm a bit partial to the single forum unless traffic increases.

If it's too crowded we can just start banning people until we have some elbow room too.

I've always hated megaupload and now it seems less surprising that their ads were riddled with viruses and interface screamed of a cheap pawn shop.

In any case, you can upload with youtube now and directly embed your videos into the forum for feedback.

If you want to send a file privately, you can send it via wetransfer.com.

We probably still need a good file site listed for files reaching a mass audience, however, I suspect that software creators and HUD creators know where to upload their files already.

Re: Rules, FAQ and Best Of Threads (READ BEFORE POSTING) [Don't troll in strat threads.]

Any issues with allowing some of the less focused and general threads to remain open lately?

Nobody has been complaining about them, people are responding at very rapid rates to these general questions, users are being helped and trolling/flaming seems to be rather minimal in these threads.

I've been leaving them open because of the above, as have the other mods here. Let us know if you want to see that changed.

I was going to redo the sticky thread, but I just reread it and even though it is over 18 months old it looks quite sharp still.

The one thing it could use is some more links to good threads in this forum, so feel free to post links to good heads up sng threads or voice what you want to see in the FAQ and I'll add it (including previously mentioned links in this thread.)

Also added the edit part:

Quote:
What are good stats?
Stats really aren't that important and generally cannot tell you if you are doing something wrong in a HU SNG (mainly due to changing blindlevels/stack depths and reads being more relevant in general), this is very different from 6max or FR so keep it in mind, stat and/or hud posts and questions should generally be put in the beginner's questions thread.

^ Edit ^ Thought out posts about stats can be relevant, particularly with advances in the statistical tracking area of poker, however, always make sure that any posts about stats have a purpose and a relevant sample (usually thousands of games). Always avoid "are these stats good?" type posts or "what am I doing wrong? Here are my stats" as they are almost always too general to be helpful.
If somebody wants to reword that, have at it.

Re: **Official PokerStars Heads Up SNG Improvement Thread**

the scumbagness in this is so obvious that:

a) Baart should step down as ring game manager
b) ChicagoRy should step down as moderator of this forum

i want the head moderator in here. now.

mme, the only post out of the last 100 that was removed was my own (I removed it shortly after posting).

If you had moderation questions you can PM me or another mod or an admin, please stop derailing this thread with your comments.

so you claim you removed 1 post out of the last 100. that leaves 804 posts. how many did you remove from the remaining 804 posts. why you try to lie with numbers?

you still did not answer my question: are you here in your role as mod, staker, husng boss, sharky drum roller or in your role as cartel drum roller?

Re: PokerStars HU Hypers groups ("cartels") thread

If you're going to criticize me for not going through 900+ posts to see how many have been deleted, then I'm going to criticize you for not going back and reading my many posts in this thread.

They clearly explain my motivation for my stance on this issue.

Take the time to read up on the issue instead of off the cuff insults/grasping at conspiracies. I know there will always be people like you that try to find some conspiracy angle, but in this case you're wrong, because just about every little "omg why is Ryan supporting a group, it must be to help his friends/staking/coaches" actually would point towards my being against these groups.

Sorry for the derail guys. mme is ignoring PMs and throwing out baseless accusations publicly and privately to others about me.

I really like all the content and "required reading" but soooo much of it is really out dated. When was the last time new content was added into the sticky?
