Hi guys,
if you were on our previous site NZWO, you would have noticed that there was a virtual bookie system, basically which allows you to make bets with your virtual 'credits'. You earn credits via your posts, and bet using them.

We are using a totally different forum software, but there is something very similar available for it which is getting good reviews.

Would people be interested in something like this? There is a cost to the software hence us asking the question, else it would already have been on the site. If we get enough interest we will get it.

Unlike what we had at the old site, it wont clog up the threads section (appear as its own area), and ppl will be able to see in recent activity what people are betting on etc.

can we get back our credits from the last site? Not that I won many bets, but I had a couple of very generous philanthropists assisting me.:)

sorry wont be able to get credits back from old site for a number of reasons, besides it may work a lil differently if we did implement it here.

I'd be keen to see it running on this site. Pretty sure 22 Beast would be interested too.

Looking at that picture, would i be right in assuming that you could bet on more then one possible outcome and choose the odds.

Could have a quiz once a week to see how well we know our fellow fags fans. For example

How old is Fanrrior?

a)seventeen years old.
b) sixteen years old
c) twenty four years old
d) who gives a shit.

With the right answer being who gives a shit.

Or stuff like "who was the Warriors first captain" "When did Stacey Jones lose his virginity?" etc

"Most likely to be a Retardoland regular." Something I'm a little concerned I will excel at.

Can it get to the point where we owe you money?

Or does it just stay on zero?
lets just say its harder to get to owning money. and in order to owe me money, i need to give you money in the first place ;)

Does Blogs, likes, length of posts, threads, milestones, status updates have anything to do with it?
no - blog, status updates
yes - likes, length of posts, threads
what is - milestones?

keep in mind what you see right now with the bank is something im testing...i may go against that and use 'trophy' points instead.
