Why doesn't USMB use the Gameroom/Casino feature of vBulletin?

    It's about the only vBulletin bell and whistle you don't have here.

    Players "gamble" with virtual "bucks" that they can also donate to one another. It's really pretty cool and keeps folks hanging around the board alot more, and allows for more socializing.

    Here's some info, for those not aware:

    The Gameroom - Multiplayer gaming (follow up to Casino) - vBulletin.org Forum

    Actually, that's an awesome idea! 4Nines, how about it? I'll mod it if needed and no one else wants to.

    I'm on a board that has it and it's great. I'd rather spend the time here though.

    It would be fun and keep my attention on here late nights more when the debating and arguing is at a minimum.

    Neither is the other messageboard I'm on who uses this feature. It's a creature feature, and keeps folks on the site alot longer, increases participation, and retains users.

    And also, draws in more traffic.

    Hey, it was just a question/feedback.

    Unlike most of the long-time regulars here, I continue to try to help grow the board. I know of the casino, and it is really a cool feature.

    That's all. Glad to see suggestions are actually welcomed.
