You enlisted members to vote in your poll.  You were offering to send them the v-tracs to their emails since they played individial states.  But that seemed to be a problem for you from the start, because you want to post all states.  Seems to me if you were telling those wanting to play a specific state that you'd send it to their email address, why can't you just do that?  Members are pleading and begging and sounding absolutely desperate for the v-tracs, and others are saying it takes up too much space, or maybe needs it's own forum, and those comments seem to rile you so much, now you're saying forget you made the offer.

You're pouting because apparently the poll isn't reflecting what you really want.  If you offered to send the v-tracs via email for individual states, why can't you send the entire format for those playing ultiple states to their emails as well or put them in your blog?

jorli - well put!  i want you as my lawyer  lol

love to nibble those micey feet.

        Put it on one post, update daily, or post in blog...or as stated send to personal e-mails if the offer you made still stands...it's really NOT a complicated matter.  The question was asked...members replied, now feelings are hurt...it's not worth it...keep it simple for Christ sake! (KISS Method goes far)

        No Pity!

        Every post I read on this thread thus far have a valid point!!!

          I want to say thanks for all that have shared their opinions and those who wrote such lovely pms.

          I am going to pray about this one.

          I am sure with prayers.. answers will come..

          Have a blessed day...

           

           

          tntea - pray for the hurricane victims - MUCH more important than vtrac.

            I voted no for 30+ individual state posts for vtracs. If you don't understand the reasoning for it, maybe Todd could add a feature to block out post. The forum would be the tntea and Blackapple show again. I don't want that again. You two do good work, but I don't want to have to wade thru it again. Have post set at 50 per page then, and the two of you had 3 pages used up with a minority of post from others.
                  Sandyk, it is not question of her not being welcome to post, but if she post the all individual states and updates them all, what would it look like. geez Can she maybe put them in maybe 4 or so threads or one...another suggestion would be to just Blog it.

            If I may respond

            I apologize to the forum for excessive posts

            Mistakes learned and progress made from

            work done on the post instead of paper.

            Been easier to review work on the post

            than shuffling paper.Still experimenting

            with ideas put forth by the forum.

                                            Thanks

              Posting on one daily thread you have your first page as your opener.

              Post each individual state as a reply to your original post so as not to mingle the states on one page.

              Do a new daily thread each day.

              Any player that follows your v-trac will find it all on one daily thread.

                Excellent way to do it!  Each day a new thread.  If anyone notices, most Tx predictions are listed under 1 thread every day (sometimes a stray apears, but not too often), usually started by Pick 3 Fairy  OR  anyone who gets up before her. Ain't nuthin wrong with that, it's not showing off, and it's not overpowering the board.

              I didn't understand the part about "taking up too much room"...seems that's Todd's baby to control...not individual members.  Afterall, he owns this site, yes?

              tntea, you would be overwhelmed by trying to send each person an email with their choices of states.  Make it easy on yourself, girl.  Go with the Daily Post and list all states, in alphbetical order....we SHOULD be able to find the states we want.

              And, I just HAVE  to add this:  seems to me, the poll came out larger for the all states.  Am I not correct?  Ok, checked it again.  It was individual states.

              If you do a Daily thread with all states listed, that way, if no one is interested in the VT, then they don't even have to open the message.  Most people here have decided who's thread to open and who's not to.  Simple.

                  That's just it Molly, how many people who voted that way realize she is talking about posting 30 + post instead of doing them all on one. That may have change the vote.

                      Then 1 post would work fine!  No problem.

                      Don't understand how this got out of hand.

                      But, as you can see by the vote....everyone, the majority want the help offered.

                            I was talking about what she was/is planning to do. And as she has done many times. Between her and Blackapple I have seen days where there were only 10 different posters on the first 3 pages.

                            You would think with people being so good at picking numbers and so helpful they could help Todd by becoming a paying member too. They utilize the board enough. Don't you think?
