If you don't actually PLAY in the Detroit area stores (MGM, MC, GT) plus fairly nearby Native American joints (FK, 4W, probably the Toledo place opening soon) then our site may not be as useful to you as that's where we are planning to focus.
It's a web based community site but still more "real world" interest than strictly-computer like this site or bj21 etc. I actually don't want the membership to get too BIG just so it won't become such a difficult job to manage, as what's happened here with KEN throwing in the towel. People don't realize how much hassle keeping a good board going really IS when it gets fairly large.
That said, however... you might be interested in an "Associate" team membership (vs. CORE player) for a different reason.
That "reason" and the mechanics of the Associate idea is something I will be discussing with other AP's from here at the EVENT coming soon.
Unfortunately this board will be shut down MONDAY which will prevent me from putting that info on here (will be too late) SO if you're interested in learning more about *that* please just add your email address to our mailing list by clicking the Mailing List Manager icon on the main page at http://www.detroitblackjackteam.com/
That news will be coming pretty soon... as soon as I have time to get a few more things done on the site, as well as AFTER we talk about it among the CORE team members.
P.S. By the way, my intention for this site is for it to have NO ADS, EVER!!
That one curling-corner "ad" on the index page at the moment is actually just a 'placeholder' which I intend to eventually use for internal site-news purposes -- The script code I cribbed for it just had the e-cig graphic in it and I have not edited it yet.
No offense meant to other web forum admins, but it really bugs me that all the other sites in this space STILL have frikkin' ADS all over 'em. I know ya gotta try to get revenue wherever possible, but I just think it cheapens the site too much. ESPECIALLY the CASINO ads... WTF, right?
