Right, his undertitle was "banned" rather than "temp-banned" so I assumed he'd be banned then the decision had been reversed.

You annoyed several posters including me and you were bringing a poor tone to the thread so I toasted you for three days. Deal with it. Next time it will be a week and then.... Don't play games of innocence with me or you will be gone for good. You have a questionable history around here derailing threads and making them less pleasant to read so be thankful you haven't been permabanned. Have a nice weekend.

Re: ****OFFICIAL NVG MODERATION DISCUSSION THREAD****

I can't recall a thread that has been as tilting as Ted's Excellent Vegas Poker Theme Park .

Any threads that had in the past were either closed or quickly died from natural causes.

This one just wont die.

true, but crack heads keep returning to crack.

That does not change the fact that crack is bad and should be eradicated.

By that logic, even if they did close the thread you would just find a way to argue with Ted anyway, on the black market. The War on Silly Threads would cost billions of dollars and millions of lives, and accomplish nothing.

I didn't say I was a member of the party or subscribed to all their craziness. Like all political parties, they have also gone off the rails. /political derail.

Re: ****OFFICIAL NVG MODERATION DISCUSSION THREAD****

The Doug Lee thread has been locked. This marks the end of an era. At least we can look back on almost a decade of funny anecdotes, photoshops, memes and other shenanigans. It was a great time to be alive.

RIP Doug

To be fair, Torelli is now the biggest toolbox so the thread title was out of date.

Re: ****OFFICIAL NVG MODERATION DISCUSSION THREAD****

This might be relevant to the HPT thread, so as per the directions in that last post... Feel free to move this post to the HPT thread if it is worth re-opening.



Over the last week, I've discussed the HPT situation with various gaming professionals who have a large amount of experience in both live and online poker tournaments. I don't want to identify them, but with that proviso:

1) None of these stories relate to PokerStars live or online operations. I'm not making any reference to PokerStars activities in this post. I'm not making any comment on anything with reference to PokerStars here.

2) The people that I spoke to have experience working with multiple live operators, and multiple online operators.

3) When operators believed that there was going to be an overlay caused by a guarantee, every single staff member thought it was entirely mundane and routine for operators to give favourable entry conditions to certain customers.

4) In no cases did the staff tell me stories that were literally identical to the HPT case. These are all different to what happened at HPT.

5) In some (online) cases, I was told that this involved operators running satellites that were guaranteed to overlay, either by:
a) guaranteed prize pools (seats) with real money buy-ins
b) guaranteed prize pools (seats) with various points buy-ins

6) In some (live) cases, I was told that this involved operators phoning favoured regulars to alert them to the overlays.

7) In some (live) cases, I was told that this involved operators giving discounts on entry fees to selected customers.

8) In at least one (online) case, I was told that this involved an operator just registering a number of customers to the online tournament, with those players just sitting out and blinding out (or, if they happened to be logged in, they could play).

9) In at least one (online) case, I was told that employees of the site registered into the online event. Allegedly, this took place with identifiable staff accounts - I am sceptical of this aspect.


I have no way of verifying the claims that I was told, but I have no reason to doubt the claims. Some of these alleged activities happened at different sites, operating under different regulations, and I have no reason to suspect that there was any rules breach. I do not know the dates when these various events took place.

I just moved/copied the above Josem post to the newly re-opened HPT Westgate thread with a warning to keep posts on topic and free of "trolling".

Wish us luck.

Re: ****OFFICIAL NVG MODERATION DISCUSSION THREAD****

Hi Mods,

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/2...78/index2.html

Would there be a way to move discussion related to BetStars/PokerStars Sunday Million Anniversary wagers to a separate thread or create a new one (starting from Post #43)?

Thanks for your consideration & all the best regardless of what is decided.

would it be possible for NVG to conduct a culling, just like BBV ?

funny thing about a culling, you don't have to be any good, just the least worst

Re: ****OFFICIAL NVG MODERATION DISCUSSION THREAD****

Hey guys, just curious why my NVG thread was deleted? Sorry if I did something wrong. Pretty sure an insider trading conviction involving Amaya and including a plea deal is newsworthy. Did it get moved into another thread maybe? Cheers
