RE: WELCOME everybody!
Well done for getting this all of the ground and keeping it going for 5 years. As a newbie, I am really looking forward to participating.

(14-01-2010 08:27 PM)Ryor Wrote:  I started Group Racers in August 2008 as a trial at another site (which we have now outgrown) in the hope it would be a forum with a difference - simply a place where we could exchange knowledge, experience, information and tips on racing, in a fun and friendly environment, without the distraction of any kids from the playground. In our infancy we were small and private, with a membership totalling just 15.

Success brought confidence, and in July 2009 the members voted to open our doors and go public. Happily, that decision has proved a winner - we quadrupled our membership within four months, have added more since, and it's a pleasure to note that not one member has ever been disruptive since we started**. All of us have experienced the idiotic antics on other racing forums, and many, if not most, of our current members came here to escape it. That isn't to say we don't enjoy banter - the atmos has always been great - but we've been incredibly profitable too, and perhaps the absence of distracting kids has played a part in that. The aim is to continue to mutually benefit in terms of increasing our profits, whilst also sharing the highs and lows of punting in a peaceful and supportive atmosphere.

We will therefore be continuing with the same set of just 7 simple rules which have served us so well. Please note - one strike and you're out, pronto and permanently Toilet

1. No abuse or other playground stuff

2. No spamming

3. No plagiarism

4. No multiple IDs (members may not have more than one username on the site, and all name changes must be cleared with me first).

5. No member is permitted to own, run, manage or work for any sports-related subscription tipping service outside of GR. Exceptions may be made where these are for purely charitable purposes, but members must clear this with me first.

6. Members are of course free to circulate their own tips/info etc wherever they wish, but that of other members must not be given or posted elsewhere by anyone else.

7. All new members who visit the site 5 times or more in their first 2 months, must make at least 5 posts within those two months, otherwise their membership will be permanently cancelled. The posts do not have to be tips, but can be congrats, weather or going reports, ideas for systems, good wishes for other members' selections etc. Thereafter, any
members who browse the site regularly will be expected to keep contributing regularly with their own posts on a similarly proportionate basis.

The thinking behind this is simply that many members put in several hours daily to come up with their stats, selections etc for the free benefit of anyone reading them, whilst others were to be seen surfing the board several times weekly but contributing nothing, not even giving a word of praise or thanks for the profits they were surely making from the tipsters putting the work in. This board is only in existence because of members who POST.

If any members have personal circumstances which mean they are unable to post for a lengthy period, they should let me know by PM or email, and they will be individually considered. Two members have done this in the past, and were exempted.

I am always open to ideas and suggestions for improvements Thumbs

Ryor/Yeats (Red Rum on old site)
Admin
Edit note - message updated 17/10/10

Update 13/3/10 - A note re my name changes:-

I think most people here knew that my name was Ryor on another board, but that I ditched it for 'RedRum' when starting Group Racers, in order not to leave a Google-able trail for the playground lot.

When we moved house to here from our old GR site, I changed to Yeats - but must say I've never felt at home with that, nor did I want to return to RedRum.
Therefore I've gone back to my original name, Ryor. I think we're strong enough now, 18 months on, to shrug off any unwanted attentions from the playground kids Icon_smile

**Update 26/9/13 There have actually now been two, both given the boot - one for deliberately insulting another member and refusing to apologise; one for spamming a fee-charging tipping "service". Plus one banned for multi-ID-ing. However, 3 in 5 years doesn't seem too bad a record!

RE: WELCOME everybody!
Thanks for the invite guys - hopefully I can bring something to the forum - I run a few laying systems and currently trialling a few other backing systems, mainly for fun but do win now and again (well thats I tell the wife!).

I run a couple of little businesses and hence travel quite a lot but hopefully can contribute when on my travels.

I'll spend sometime catching up on the numerous threads, in the meantime happy betting and good luck to all

cheers
Lozzer (Chris)

I live in Kent am married with two children and three granchildren and work as a warehouseman, can't think of anything else that you may want to know about me so will leave it at that for now, apart from and thanks for having me here.

RE: WELCOME everybody!
Hello everyone. Thanks Ryor for letting me join. Have not looked at any threads yet,but can't wait to do that. Little bit about me: I have been betting on horse racing and football for a good 15 years now,thought I had made it at first,then soon the long losing runs multiplied.Took some time off betting.I spent few years learning more about the game,paper trading and for the past 3 years now,am betting to very small stakes. I concentrate now more on class 2 and above. I hope to make some useful contribution to the site and to learn more from you all.
