Bookies?

Post by Steweh on May 17th 2009, 1:49 am

This is an option on vBulliten (it is called 'vBookies') and it lets you bet on an event set by a member, and then the bet is payed off after it is finished (Like real life betting).

It is pretty much like this-

Spoiler:

Please vote!

This of course will be more used on Sporting forums, but can defiantly be used on other forums as well.

Voted yes.

I actually already run a vBookie on a forumotion site manually already, so it's not like it's impossible to do. It really gives members something to do with their points right now since there really isn't much of a store or anything yet.

Seen it on a few forums, it's great, gives people something to do, an added interaction, and is something that people can talk about.

Voted Yes, and if anyone votes no, you had got to be pretty silly.

Is this actually true? I always thought you could bump once every 24 hours regardless of the member.

This is actually a idea that can be done if you have template editing. Or your own host.

Voted no. Did you guys see the thread about ForuMotion's age range? A hell of a lot of people were under 14. They would get a bad influence from fake gambling, none the less real.

Alternatively, you could use this system as a voting system. Normally more senior members will have more points, so let's say you make a thread asking about whether people want a certain change to the forum. If members use their points as a kind of weight for their vote (i.e. if Senior Member A has 2 points, New Member B has 1 point, then the Senior Member's vote using 2 points will give him more influence in the forum's activity), then we're looking at rewarding senior members of a board with more say in a forum's decisions. There are more than just the obvious uses for this function, it doesn't always have to be about gambling.

I run a baseball forum, and it would be very useful to have a bookie system, and let everyone put their credit points to use.

I have done a bit a research, and there are a few MODs written that might have this ability.

Bookmakers (Betting with points) - I have read that it is mainly for phpBB2
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=276203

Even though the links are no longer working in that forum, but phpBBhacks still provides downloads.

http://www.phpbbhacks.com/download/3022


Ultimate Points (Betting with points) - I have heard this one is mainly for phpBB3
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=1643875


finally


Easy Sub Forum Mod - it seems like there is a bookie system in there, at least from the snippets of codes that i've seen.

I really wish this would pass, please vote.

to those who are against fake gambling, in the RPG games and pretty much most of the games there are a lot of fake killing, are you saying those are fine and not fake gambling? in super mario there are fake killing of turtles, are you fine with fake animal abuse? please get off the moral high horse and let those forums that could benefit from the fake bookie system have what we need.
