It's doable but a major pain in the ass, but the alternative is just apologizing to everybody who missed out on their vcash and asking them to roll with the punches, and having them bear grudges.

So when I edited the date? You're saying that this screwed up the odds and reversed them?

It's been known to happen.

It's wonky and makes NO sense - but I think even the creators of the VBookie software have said that it's glitchy and to be used by forums at their own risk. You just basically have to double or triple check everything whenever dealing with VBookie, like you're tip-toeing around a minefield.

Alright.

I will do a thread fixing this stuff for people who were screwed out of genuine winnings. Only, I can't be arsed to do it just now.

I'll get on that next week after the next edition of On the Ropes.

I think I'm the curse this last couple of days. Those are the first two times I've been slinging the biggest bets around on an event.

Hey...could my betting one dollar have confused the vBookie into insanity? Because if it did, I apologize.
