    A Request for Jeremy (credit banking)

    Have you thought about allowing people to be able to "bank" their credits at a reasonable rate of "interest?"

    I'm interested in running an experiment, where I "bank" half of my credits earned, and "bet" the rest, to see which one allows me to make the most money.

    Please???

    Yeah I actually have and it's setup that way but I have it disabled for now. I didn't want to make things to complicated at first and wanted to gradually roll out the system so people would have time to understand it.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I was going to ask for a way to check the outcome of the bets I placed, but then I realized you've already implemented it.

    For those of you who were also looking for a feature to show what you've bet on and the outcome, it's in the center of the "CyBookie" page toward the top entitled "Your Bets."

    OK, I've ignored the credits til now. Where is the "why do we have them and how do you use them thread"?

    But be careful, it is an addiction. You start watching teams you have never watched before because you have credits on them.

    Lots and lots of options to bet on today. And you cannot find a more perfect day to try it.

    Could you do me a favor and announce when it gets activated? I saw the button, but couldn't find the rates.

    We should just be able to move our $$ to the stock market.

    I would invest half of it in low risk mutual funds and then take the other half over to my friend Asadulah who works in securities

    Why would we want to bank our credits. Do we get points for having it in savings?

    Pork bellies on margins? Orange juice futures?

    Here's one: How about an algorhythm that gives different rates of return, such as simple (low) interest, conservative stocks, and growth stocks, with different rates of return and volatility.

    Then Jeremy could sell some *******' ads to stock market companies, make tons of money, and take us all to disney land!
