this forum is meant to be news views and gossip about gambling. if you haven't noticed, it is under the 'general gambling' heading. almost everything posted here lately belongs in the other other topics forum. I guess I'll just have to get my news and gossip from rgp.

I give up.

If this forum is ruined for you, can I borrow it?

If you think this forum is bad, you should take a look at the WPT forum.

On the front page, I count 7 threads that are clearly not gambling-related. I think that's getting better. This forum (NVG) is not so busy that a few extra threads is a problem, especially since I check once a day. 9 of the threads clearly belong here. The last four could be in other forums, but fall into a gray area of appropriateness, and I am not offended by their presence here.

Again, I want to say having a sticky forum FAQ/guidelines in each one of these groups would be great. It would help answer problems like this, remove common questions, and provide links to all the most awesome threads of the past.

Clearly off-topic
album covers - OOT
Shot a man - OOT
$25k car - OOT
$4000 car - OOT
$400 car - humor, should follow the other two
Women - OOT
Wood? - Politics

Clearly on-topic
this thread - cuz it relates to this forum
How do you guys... - views
Aderol - views
Why I play - views
LAP magazine - news
backing - views
Phil Hellmuth - gossip
Privacy notice - news
hartford courant article - news

Could be elsewhere, could be here
Vegas chips - maybe B&M, but here is fine
definitions - maybe Beginner's
Carpal Tunnel - 'misc poker', here is better than General Texas Hold'em
floor ruling - 'misc poker', here is better than General

yeah, this one's not bad, but the WPT forum is awful. and that is partially the fault of DS himself, trying to post crap that has absolutely nothing to do with the WPT in that area so that the "big dogs" or however he phrased it would respond to them.

All you need is a time machine. Get in and set controlls for Germany circa 1939.

I know this is a political post but monkey boy started it.

true, the wpt forum has lots of off-topic posts, but in spite of that it has become the most interesting forum on this site.
