I think it is for betting but i could not work out how to place a bet on the Ipad so must be dense myself. Also despite the bets no longer being open the number of threads that have been completed are still showing and i cant get rid of it which is slightly annoying.

I agree, very confusing to navigate through. It does seem interesting though.

It's a betting add-on which allows you to bet, just for fun. All members start off with £1000, there are no actual cash transactions involved.

When a forum leader creates an event for you to bet on you should see a little red flag next to the Sportsbook link, just like when you get an alert/private message.

We've only had a few events created so far, hopefully we'll begin to add more. @King and @Magic will most likely do most :)

I'm not sure what you mean by the bold text? Nothing shows up when I view the Sportsbook page as there are no available events to bet on?

I have a red number nine indicating there should be threads for me to look at but when I go there there is nothing there and I can't get rid of the nine it just taunts me.

When you hover over the link you should get a drop down menu, select the 'mark events viewed'?

Just to let you guys know: @Kontrolled , @BENZ79

In the next few days, after we get a finalised card, we'll have some odds up for the matches at Extreme Rules for you to have a bet on. We also have Man United vs. Chelsea up now, if you're interested in that.

Yeah as Laffy said, I think it's supposed to show up as a a little number in red next to Sportsbook, to indicate a new Sportsbook event. Did you get that? If you start the event, you don't get the alert, so I had to check and Laffy said she could see it.

No small red number above the word sports book. It was there for me, did the others appear for mania?

@Kam......... folks usually got money after a new event was created, I presume this works the same way Kam?

Oh I love these tag alerts :)

There is a 'cash to poor' option which is currently set at £500.00. So if you do end up broke the system will add a further £500.00 to your balance. This check happens once every 24 hours.

Also Sportbook has the option to create a forum like link on the forum display which would automatically appear at the top of the forum list. I may activate this when we have bets available just to push the feature more. We then then remove it when there is nothing to bet on.

@King you've got the same permissions as bigmatt and other Forum Leaders. You shouldn't have any problems with creating events.

Your general alert preferences are located here but I don't think there is anyway to turn off the Sportsbook alerts for individual members. As Laffy said once you click to view the event they number disappears.

It could possibly be something to with your browser - which one are you using?
