    I'm working on a reshaping of the forum.
    Obviously, much of it will be centered on deTerminator.

    But please tell me what else you'd like to see.

    Types of Wager Strategy & Money Management. I would like to better understand what to do once we've handicapped a race. For example, a 6-horse or an 11-horse field with a BALO. Or the opposite, there's no BALO in the field. We have our contenders, so now what do we do-- Win, Place, Exacta, Tri or Double wagers? Do we always wager on our Win contender(s) followed by an Exacta? Do we box the Exacta? Does field size come into play?
    Do we set-up separate bank-rolls for each type of wager? If yes, what percentage of our bank-roll should we wager within each. If we have a solid selection process, is it better to simply stick with Win bets? One unit to Win and 6 units to Place? When do we branch out (or should we) to Pick 4's and Pick 5's?
    There are so many different types of wagers available once we have our contenders it sometimes feels overwhelming. Then deciding how much of our bank-roll should we wager based on the types of bets.
    I need to and want to develop or more standardize approach if possible. Scenario A I make these wagers using this percentage of my bank-roll(s). If it's a Scenario B, I do this.

    EquinEdge gets a lot of mileage out of live streaming from
    several of their users. Comped data for x streams per month?

    Australia or Hong Kong data available?

    A deTermnator board are where users can (with screen shots/jpg's)
    interact on problems and solutions to common questions/redboards.
    Rewards for x posts per month.

    A monthly handicapping contest for users.

    Team/combined wagers on big days.

    Invite guest user/handicappers to do a complete card with explanations.

    My goal is to quit a very good-paying job and wager professionally. I can
    only do that with an intense knowledge of the program. I buy everything
    and read everything that seems minimally relevant. I listen to radio shows
    and podcasts trying to glean whatever nuggets that are thrown out. Others
    may not have the same intensity, but our goals are the same - improve our
    handicapping.

    Are you, Dave, the programmer? Master instructor? Both? If both, do you
    have the time (especially since you wanted to do an AI Crypto program
    soon)? How many more users do you want to have over what you have now
    and what investment are you willing to make to get them?

    Users must have something to react to. Output from the website means
    input back from the users.

    I also like the following ideas that Pony listed:

    First, I love all these ideas.
    Some are a little labor intensive - and my personal labor is always in short supply.

    But I've already scheduled a meeting with Sherri (my primary VA) and Kelsey to make many of the iother things happen.

    Just a heads up - I'm in the process of recording a video of BALOs from April 13 - the day that Matt commented about on PaceAdvantage. It' is long and comes in multiple parts.

    The first part shows how well it works and the rest is simply PROOF if anyone wants to see that.
