Hi $tring,

another request sent by a user :

It is possible de modify a prediction, but it is not possible to remove a prediction.

Given the fact that we can get negative points in case of wrong prediction, I think that choosing to not give predictions for some matchs is a strategy. A user can decide eventually to remove its prediction for one match, so he should be allowed to do that.

Don't you think so ?

Hi,

Do you mean a user can remove his prediction before the match takes place, or after the match takes place?

Before, of course. (after wouldn't make sense, everybody would remove his wrong predictions to avoid negative points)

Please make that an option, as one may want to enfore that all games are predicted. Negative points are part of the strategy for some pools.

It is impossible to enforce that all games are predicted. The user can choose not to enter a score for any given match.

Hi,

I am really busy at the moment and I do not have time to look at this right now. I will get a look at it as soon as I can.

In the meantime, can anyone else confirm whether or not they are able to set admin permissions for their Sportsbook?

Thanks

Yes, but it is not a feature of the mod. Instructions are here:

Hi $tring,

Another request :

When a match is starting, we can't set prediction for it, which is normal. But we can't see the prediction we set until the result is given. And I think it would be great if at that time, we could also see other players' prediction.
Because when the match starts, then you can see what other players predicted (no incidence because nobody can change it at that time), and you know how many points they will get depending of the score. It adds a little fun following the match.

Thanks for the info, it's working at my end fine also. I'll need to look into that further to see if it is a bug or not.
