When freerolls are set up by a forum the people that are allowed to play the tourney are active members and have been sent the password by PM from admin.What burns me is when people share this PW with non-members.I think if a person plays a forum freeroll with a stolen/shared password his/her winnings should be VOID.The poker room should REMOVE the winnings from the person and they should be BANNED not only from the forum but also banned from the poker room.This not only goes for the person that shared the password but the person that received the password and entered the tourney under false pretense.When it comes right down to it .............it's not that much of an effort to be active.Active members of ANY forum don't like when a password is leaked/stolen/shared.

Yes Mick I totally understand and agree,
We here try really hard to sort out which members get our PW.
Sometimes we have to hand out the pass also to new members to make the min. players.
And with new members you can never be really sure.

We check the 2 upcoming freerolls good, and if we see there Nicknames which we dont know from postings we will take action and try to find out who shared the pw.

I'm always glad to see forums take a hard line against both those who share PWs and those who use them when they shouldn't. And I have no issue at all if I'm not active enough to receive them.

I also wish the poker rooms would crack down on them. That said, I don't know that they're likely to do much since they undoubtedly have higher priorities than policing who plays in their private freerolls.

You are very right Arjonius, the rooms do have higher
priorties but i do know some rooms who take such things very seriously and know of some to do exactly what mick has said in his post above. I also too wish that
poker rooms would take such things more to heart.

I really THINK it is total B/S!!! Sorry if thats out of line, but, I think anyone who does this type of thing, is a sneaky, jerk of a loser<--Just my opinion:confused: :nuts:
I love BP & TY for the awesome 1-of-a-kind Bonuses +++:thank you::beer:​

okay...so I am one of the "new guys" who got the pw and played today (and played like a total idiot on the hand i went out on :confused: ) i felt extremely fortunate to have been playing after not meeting all the criteria that you guys have set. that being said, i want to thank ALL of you for your generosity and hospitality for allowing me to participate..BP is doing an exceptional job in running it's forum, and trying to give ppl the benefit of the doubt...had the PW not been leaked, i'm pretty sure I would have cashed today, but that's not what i'm upset about...i'm upset that somebody was selfish enough to share the pw with someone who has done absolutely NOTHING to contribute to the forum..i'm upset that somebody's hard work to set this thing up was ruined by some A-HOLE, and thanks to them, put the future of BP freerolls in jeopardy...I formally want to take a stand for BP, and say that whatever you decide to do, you have my FULL support, and I will back you up in any way that I can...i just hope that the DONK that leaked the PW reaps what they have sewn...thanks again BP for all the wonderful things you do for your members! you guys are awesome!!

ps- sorry this was so long, but i was very PEE-O'D after the whole ordeal

it is NOT you guys' fault D!!! stop taking the blame for somebody else being a jerk! judging from our conversation at the table this afternoon, i think it's fairly clear who the person that leaked was! so, don't take the blame, BP, let's all work together and stand behind the forum to help them do what they feel is necessary! you have my support, not my blame!!!! thanks again for not only letting me play in the game today, but allowing me to be a member of your forum!! :hugs::socool:

Thanks for the great post bigchris2002
Thanks to each of you for your input and thoughts, it means so much to us,
only if we work together , members and staff we can find the best way to prevent password theft better.

Dmoney´s and my head are already smoking from thinking what and how we do with future events, we have some plans, I just need to figure out some technical things first.

We keep you updated.

:hugs:

i think beside all the allready mentioned points, it is also kinda foolish of the person, because he reduces his chance of winning by the bigger competition caused by him:confused:

so i'm guessing the consensus is that PW leakers are IDIOTS? :nuts: i don't like name calling and mean spirited things...but when it comes to someone taking advantage of someone else's generosity, it kinda gets me a wee-bit upset :)

Hey Chris and welcome to the forum.Man call it premonition but i did start this thread before the Doyles room game today.You have a right to be p'od and I'm sure every member feels the same.It throws you off the game when this happens.Anyone that doesn't know... the password was leaked for the Doyles room freeroll.I'm not going to name names here as thats admins job.Fact of the matter is these two people were........ caught............reported.............and banned.It great to see that Mike , Marina , dmoney are on the ball and this crap won't be tolerated here at BP.Let this be a warning to others trying to pull this stuff.You WILL get caught........banned...........and YOU WON'T SEE A DIME OF ANY WINNINGS so go do your thing somewhere else.

Thank you everyone for your insightful posts.

It's ashame a few put this type of blemish on
these freerolls. Bonus Paradise is trying it's hardest
so our honest and great members aren't abused by the
likes of a few.

Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated.

Thank you all for your support
