    nope, by all means do so.

    however, be warned, you will give credit where credit is due at some point.

      I follow a few of the jackpot and pick5 games and haven't noticed that happening.  With pick3 games having only 1000 combinations and 210 if boxed, that could happen unintentionally when 50 or more predictions are posted. Unless someone has a high percentage of their predictions hitting then I can't see the advantage for someone else claiming them as their own.  Beside if anyone is following those predictions, they are going know about it.

        can you be more specific and or point to what you are referring to.

        Prediction boards or threads. Post a link.

          Normal I post my number anytime until I saw someone use my order of number just changing them around. I decided

          to test to make sure, so I would wait until they post before I post, I notice that they weren't get any hits for two days on the cash 3. I know that we all look at everybody numbers i do myself, but I still use my own predictions. Don't get me wrong I don't mind anyone use any of my picks, What i do mind is when you use most of my numbers, and change them around for your own predictions. I know what goes around come around. This is just my way of letting them know that I'm own to than.

                I'd definitely throw a nice amount towards the source. I wouldn't split it though. You can't win if you don't play.

                    Do you think some of the members who post over 8,000 predictions a day are thinking someone might hit one of their combinations  and foolishly throw a little change their way?  Not that it wouldn't be a kind gesture to do but it could open up a legal battle over whether or not they were fairly compensated.

                        True... 

                        I just looked at my NY LOTTO QP for tonights 7 million and notice the following numbers part of one of my sets

                        3 4 5 6 ..... 

                        I didn't put the last 2 numbers based on this disscussion but thought it was strange to get 4 numbers in a ROW and had to share it (also thought maybe sharing will help it come in?? LOL)

                          In the past I've gotten PMs from people who played some of my predictions.  They didn't want to thank me for sharing but wanted to complain about the money they lost playing my numbers.  I've also read threads started by others who complained that some predictors posted too many numbers for their budgets.  Apparently they had no self control to limit the amount they spent on lotteries and wanted the predictors to cut back instead.

                              Look. This is a website. If you post your numbers and someone else uses them, whether it be by reposting them as their own, or playing them and winning a jackpot, they have every right to do so. If either one of those bothers you, then don't post your numbers. Simple as that. Getting mad at them makes no sense. This is a website, not a high school.Sleepy
