In addition to this debate - what are people's thoughts on the Comment Ratings??


All
I would be interested in your thoughts on the current system for Comment Ratings whereby it is necessary to gain positive comments for 3% or 5% to be eligible for Double or Treble awards respectively.

I think this is a particular challenge in Horse Racing. It is disheartening to place a series of well researched and profitable tips over many months, showing profit in 4 or 5 months out of 6, only to be ineligible for the enhanced prizes because of a lack of activity on ratings.

I absolutely agree with some form of quality measure, but I dont think that the current system is fit for purpose. I am not sure how many tipsters actually look at the Tipster section and how many of those give ratings? I would welcome an assessment on the quality of the tips I submit and I dont think that my (or most tipsters) rating score adequately refelcts that.

I wouldnt want to overburden OLBG admin but a sense check on quality comments would surely be a fairer way.

Any thoughts?
I think is right direction of thinking. In some less popular competitions (boxing, ice hockey, cycling etc.) it is really hard to arouse interest and expect people rating comments.

How long does the betting stake have to last in the competition

You start the month with a 1,000 virtual balance and you get top-ups of 100 each day, the bank is reset at the beginning of each month.

Hello,

What about the Specials October competition? It said 10 tips minimum to qualify and yet there were not enough events. :?

Hi, occasionally this occurs similar to the F1 season, Premier League, English Football Leagues etc when out of season. Events become available through the month sometimes and we don't amend minimum tip number criteria during a current month's competition.

From the 1st January 2022, the main Horse Racing (Comment Comp) Table will have a minimum of 10 profit tips (currently 5) required to potentially win a prize.

The competition manager will review again after January.
