*** Official Short questions and answers/small topics thread ***

NVG sees a lot of posts, and the more new threads we have, the harder it is for people to see all of the various topics that can happen in a day in this high traffic forum. To help curtail this, new threads that don't have a ton of news attached to them, or are not great long term discussion topics are often deleted or quickly locked.

But, there's a lot of knowledge here, and just because your question isn't necessarily a great long term topic, doesn't mean you shouldn't get to ask it. That's what this thread is for. Good sample questions for this thread:

1. Does anyone know why X didn't play in event Y?

2. How is X playing on Pokerstars? Aren't they American?

3. Does anyone have a link to that video where X reads Y's soul?

and so on and so forth. NVG, help us out, use this thread to ask questions, and, if you know the answer, please chime in answer a few questions as well.

Usual NVG rules apply. Do not treat this thread as an opportunity to troll people asking questions. If you don't like their question, don't respond.

Have fun!

you should sticky this thread or people will continue to open new ones instead of asking questions here, once this one is on page 2 or 3

Great thread idea Ray. I agree with the sticky idea wholeheartedly as well.

Now, can we merge ~80% of the threads on the first three pages into this one?

It might actually make NVG worth visiting on a regular basis.

LPK, I'm sure he's gambling plenty. We just don't hear about it as much as he's overseas or at an off strip casino like the Red Rock rolling 100K at a time at the craps table.

Just because he skipped the WSOP and hasn't been on TV doesn't mean anything.

How on earth are people going to find questions and answeres all jumbled into a monster thread?

As long as you search everything, not just thread titles, yes.

re: *** Official Short questions and answers/small topics thread ***

This thread is a nice idea in theory, but the biggest problem with this specific forum is the 4000 already stickied or perpetually bumped superthreads and the 1000 posts in each of them. I really think that another superthread (pinned or otherwise) is overkill...

This is a good idea, I remember Dungeons and Dragons forums had a similar thread called something like "make a simple question, get a simple answer" and it worked great. I'll try to post a link later if only to have as example.

I think we need to create a separate discussion thread for this thread .

@Noah if serious: About The Forum seems the good place to discuss it.
This thread seems good but keeping NVG under control is a challenge not many can deal with. Gl mods.

re: *** Official Short questions and answers/small topics thread ***

Let's shoot the first short questions to give this thread some materials:
Where will Mike Matusow be in a year from now?
What will DN make for MM exept offer him a drink or two?
Wich current ftp pros will represent PS in a year from now?
Who are the 5 or 6 pros (that we would be curious about) who contacted DN concerning sponsorship deals with PS?

Re: *** Official Short questions and answers/small topics thread ***

Unfortunately, this type of oversight of this forum will probably lead to its demise. The greatest threads in NVG history started with seemingly stupid or inane OPs, like "real reason why durrrr is losing the durrrr challenge" (triple-range merged, obv.) and "Will Cat Make the Jump?" (don't even remember the original purpose).

Really, no important topic ever gets bumped off the first page because invariably every single person reading the thread will give his or her 2 cents, even if it's the same 2 cents 90 other people have ever given.

poker journal

I just got an Iphone and I am using poker journal now (which may be the most expensive app ever lol) and seems a lot nicer then the one I had on my Android but more complicated as well. Does any one have suggestions or tips on best use. Or can anyone let me no how "live" works opposed to "completed" I had a session last night I started live but could not figure out how to go back in and finish it.
