Attention! - Forum rules
« on: April 13, 2015, 04:19:23 PM »
Hello,

First of all I'd like to thank you all for the increased activity in our forums.
Feel free to post anything.

However I'm tired of almost every thread developing into the same discussion about the house edge, average expectation and if roulette is beatable in the first place. I have read these kinds of posts so many times that my head hurts. And I'm not looking for a headache.

Therefore any post that repeats these objection will be deleted. It is counterproductive, boring and discouraging for members who would like to share their ideas.

If you feel the world needs just another post about how the zero makes it impossible to beat roulette, please feel free to start your own thread. However such post will not be allowed as replies to other member's ideas.

Furthermore, in order to encourage people sharing their ideas, the creator (original poster) of a thread can (ask me to) delete any replies he believes distract the discussion to other directions than originally intended.

Thanks for participating.
Best,
Kav

This forum rule will be enforced. Counterproductive, out of topic generalizations, and intimidating posts will be removed. Empty claims will be removed too.

I believe this will allow the discussions move beyond the childish exchanges
- I can beat roulette
- No you can't. I can.


If you think the other members are clueless, please do not say so. It is just bad manners. Try to share your knowledge instead. Not your "achievements", your knowledge.

Thanks

Kav,

By all means, squash the facts.  Keep people blissfully ignorant.

I know how Galileo felt. Lol.  Censorship and over moderation simply helps the infection of ignorance spread as foolish beliefs and superstitions  become cemented as facts.

Best of luck bishop.

Kav,

In that case you can start with the one in this thread:

http://rouletteforum.roulette30.com/index.php/topic,336.0.html)

Quote
Do i know any kind of system that is winner 100% of the time?
-Yes, I do but I'm not going to share it - the taste of victory is sweeter when you fought the battle alone.

The whole thread is an empty claim, but statements like this start my scammer antenna twitching.

Real,
Honestly I just save you time and frustration if "the facts" you are endlessly repeating are not convincing people. There is no point in repeating them over and over again in various topics. It disrupts the discussion.
If you want, you can create your own topic explaining your theory or "facts" or whatever.
Really Real, we want to be "saved", but you do not save us. Instead, all you do is to point out our sins. :-)

Mike,
You are right on this one. This statement is a claim without value.
However it is included in a long post with various other interesting points of view of a new member. Therefore I will let it pass. Rest assured though that "hinting", "teasing" and "claiming" will not be tolerated, especially if made repeatedly.

Kav,

How do you suppose most of the posts, such as the RTM post, would go over on the wizardofvegas forum, or perhaps the math and physics forum?

Why do you suppose the reaction would be what it would be?

Do you suppose that it's because the facts matter there, but don't here?

The discussions here are far more interesting than those made in those forums.
And they are considered "unconventional" by their standards. But so was considered Galileo Galilei's theory that the earth turns in 1600. Thinking outside the mainstream doesn't make one wrong.

Kav,

You are sadly mistaken if you believe any of them are creative or unconventional.  Think again.  They're  simply recycled elements by people that haven't taken the time to even read on the history of the game on Wiki and the gambler's fallacy.

Btw, you will not find a better article about the early history of roulette in European casinos (and the USA) than the recent article posted on our site. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

 I find it fair. Replies should follow topic. If deviation of topic is made, at least it should be interesting and informative.
    However other side of the coin is " empty clames". If someone has an idea, he has to test it for long period of time or request such a test.
  Many consider their ideas inovation, but how new these ideas only practice should show, or many spins test.
   We have here section where some fellow makes tests and codes systems...  should this one be used more, l wonder... maybe some simple spreadsheet where systems could be coded???

I agree, to that many discussions end up the same, and it has been so for long at any fora. But to ignore the HA and delete discussion there it will pointed at, is not good or clever.

All knows (or should know) the lower the HA the easier we can win.

A lot of nonsense can pass, and I have not anything against it, the game of roulette is a game of chance, and any way can be used in the attempt to win.

I think some posts can be improper, but then due to off topic, the poster should start a new thread.

Please stop quoting previous posts
« Reply #12 on: March 04, 2017, 09:50:16 PM »
Guys, please do not quote a post if it is immediately above yours.
We have a wonderful forum thanks to you, the member, let's now make it even more readable by stopping the quoting.

It is obvious that you reply to the post prior to yours. No need to quote it. And we keep our discussions cleaner and non repetitive.

Avoid quoting in general, unless it is really useful. If you want to refer to a previous post it is better to just name the poster and then post your reply. For example "Kav, this is my reply to you" .

Too much quoting is bad use of reading space, database resources and forum layout. And it gets too repetitive.

Thanks for your understanding.
