      1) PokerStrategy is great, really. Without it, I probably would have never made any money with poker, at least definitely not as much as I do right now. :D Granted, I'd prefer it if I also made some serious cash on the tables, but earning it on the "sidelines" is also fun. ;)

      2) Umm... boobies?! :D No, I'm kidding. (although... :D ) More articles/strategies/news or stuff in general about other poker variants would be nice, not only Hold'em and Omaha. I'm sure I'm not the only one who also wants to learn more about 7 Card Stud, Razz, PLO 8 or better, or even more exotic stuff like Chinese Poker. More data about how to do well in HORSE games would be appreciated.

      3) Apart from the typos in the news articles? (Of course not in mine! :P ) The only "mistake" is probably that you've become too "famous". I think it's mostly due to PS.com that there are so many damn $2 TAGs on the tables on almost every platform. :P How about some fake articles for Bronze members? Telling them to play like loose maniacs perhaps so that we can get their money? :D I'm kidding, I'm kidding! (although... ;D)

      4) Well, like previously mentioned: More stuff about other poker games. More PS.com tournaments (also freerolls! You make so much money, I bet every admin has at least 3 Porsches in their villa's garages :P ) on every platform, not only on Titan as it seems to be the case now. What else? Hrmm... did I already mention boobies? :D (Gosh, I need to get... nevermind :P )

      Evaluating hands in SSS could be better, usualy normal users are the only one posting, and sometimes one is saying one thing, other other, so we definitly could use another coach there.

      From technical site, there are session problems in forums, on my pc i dual boot linux and windows (need it from time to time) and where there is no problem to log on forums from linux, from windows it's impossible.

      Also some articles about poker variants like stud etc.

      I vote for freerolls on another platforms except Titan, I very much regret that I cannot register there..
      If it is possible of course.

      Or maybe Pokerstrategy leagues(could be tourneys with small buy-in or freerolls) - series of 5-6-10 events and you get points according to your position.. The ones with the most points after the events get a piece of the league prize pool(why not not only money, but t-shirts, chips and other stuff from the shop) :)

      And maybe buy some stuff from the shop with strategy points?

      T-shirt and other stuff raffles, I like them too. It is possible to make some sort of a draw amongst the players who cannot make so much points to get into the 100,000$ you give every month for top- strategy points earners. Why not, for instance, a draw amongst all of the players who have gained more than, say, 250 points, for t-shirts and stuff..

      These are my suggestions - of course I know that it isn't that simple to come to reality - but that's what you ask for, suggestions.

      As a matter of fact, Pokerstrategy as it is, is an awesome community, and I really give honour to you, because of your wish to further improve your platform. It is remarkable that you not only win money from the players, you give them back way more than just the 50$ initial bankroll. That's the right policy I think, because I really feel sympathy towards Pokerstrategy, and I am more or less LOYAL to the site, and want to benefit from POKERSTRATEGY promotions, and not some other site promotions. You win, I win situation. That's why Pokerstrategy has grown so popular.

      Respect to the team!

      oh yeah more of those live session-review coachings would be nice (the ones where you download a video and the coach comments live) - with maybe a few improvements:
      - live "timer" (?), so that everyone knows where the video is at
      - live webcast? it would save downloading the video, and would solve any synching problems (provided the coach can pause it anytime)

      I love Pokerstrategy, you are doing good job and always improving which is good. You are very polite with the newcomers and this is warm commune. In future I hope that PS will be #1 site of its own kind.

      A problem: very frequently there is a bug in forum or in strategy section where page is doubled or smth and it covers the lower part of the site. It makes difficult to read articles, posts (it may be my computer speciality but I doubt that).

      You don't make a lot of mistakes but those tournament should be held in many poker platforms so everybody can take part in them (heh why not make new PokerStrategy poker platform so everybody can play in that). Also I love the idea of making big PS tournament series.

      It would be great if the shop and some black member blogs were in English. It would be great if you get more small bonuses from strategy points (a book, card deck, underwear... :P )

      Keep up the good work!

      I think you should somehow motivate the players to participate in the Forum discussions and post sample hands in order to improve their game.
      Maybe you could raffle private coachings under the most active members.
      And I think you could increase the number of private public coachings.In my opinion they help a lot. On the one hand the student and on the otger hand the audience when the students makes the same mistakes they also do.

      OK, here are my suggestions:

      1. Pokerstrategy rules!
      2. I miss private post system thingy. More user-to-user interaction. That's the best way to develop your game (railing players of similar skill level, discussing hands with skype/msn, etc).
      3. The blue potato <---, that one, for coach avatar. Make it cooler. It doesn't look nice imo. :p
      4. Well, that's all, really.

      PS could improve a lot (and attract more players!) with attainable money bonusses for microstakes players. The $100k bonusaction is only for the higher players.
      I think this is easy to realise; start a ranking based on number of hands played, not points achieved. Or maybe even number of hands at a specific limit. Because these are microstakes players, the bonusses even doesn't need to be large to be significant.

      Another thing that can be improved is better explanations in the sample hands forum. It's good to know that a raise was better than a call in a specific situation, but it's much more important to know why. I think that coaches are doing their work to fast (i don't blame them). I understand that it is a hard and maybe even boring job. But maybe PS can give them better incentives to do their work more toroughly.

      More general poker news, or trivia in the news section would also be fun. However there are others sites for that, but it would be fun to have here.

      -I think there should be PS freerolls on other sites than Titan also. Especially on FTP :D
      -I dunno, maybe it's just me, but videos on the site are so small, I can hardly see anything. Could you make it a bit bigger? Or make the full version of videos available to download somewhere?
      -It would also be great if you could download coaching sessions videos
      -I would love it, if one could buy items from PS.com store, with lifetime points.
      -Stay cool !

      That's about it :tongue:

      I love your site thou, everyone helps immediatly, especially in the Post Hands section.
