What does this mean for you Seen? I dont get it? Does this make you unable to back and lay?
Are they banning you?
I've only just got my Betfair account back, i'm currently 28p in profit from £90 worth of bets.
Been expecting it for a while now to be honest. Don't panic Punt, it just means that there will only be one version of the site instead of two different ones. It won't make any difference to you and Seen is not being banned - he just prefers using the old site for his in running bets (without going into too much detail).
If you look somewhere near the top right when you log in (can't remember where) there's an option to "use old site" which is what both I and Seen prefer to do but it was inevitable that they weren't going to run forever.
That's it, mate, we all knew it was coming but it's still a totally unnecessary thing for them to do. The old site works perfectly well and there's no need to turn it off. They just want everyone using the new site so they get bombarded with adverts for their stupid Sportsbook or hideous Exchange Games.
It wouldn't be so bad had they actually bothered to ask their customers for their opinions and views, so they could make it as user friendly as possible, but as usual they don't give a flying fuck about the people who have made them what they are and been loyal users for the last 15 fucking years.
The new site is just fucking awful man. And this is not just like when a change takes a little while to get used to. It might be okay for pre-event bets but in-running is horrendous. Not to mention the vile garish colours they are forcing us to stare at for hours on end...
It's also harder to differentiate the racecard and draw numbers with everything squashed up tighter around the horse's names. More chance of making costly errors in the fast-finger action of in-running.
