      Closing Vendors Only section   06/11/2017

      The Vendors Only section on IVG was started at a time when games retail and e-commerce were pretty much non-existent in India. But with the growing popularity of e-commerce players like Amazon and Flipkart and specialist retailers like Games the Shop, we don't feel a section like this serves much purpose anymore. And even small and new businesses now have easy access to payment gateways and social media to promote their businesses. We've also been noticing a lack of activity in the section over the last year or too. That's not even taking into consideration all the times we've allowed access to vendors who either don't stay in business long enough, or use IVG to commit fraud and cheat members.   So in view of the above, we've decided to close the Vendors Only section from June 30. Starting July, the section will be removed, along with all the threads and posts within it. All users currently part of the IVG Authorised Vendor group, will be moved to the Members group.   That brings us to the topic of how to approach/deal with businesses on IVG.   IVG was started as a community that is for gamers first, so we don't want to see the forums flooded with retailers, rental services, etc using this community for free advertising. So as things stand, retailers will not be allowed to sell their products or promote their businesses on IVG.   Members who come across useful services or retailers that the rest of IVG ought to know about can use the Game Deals section to start a discussion, but this is not to be used by businesses themselves. IVG Staff will close any topics that come across as advertising.   If any would like to use the forums to talk about their business, they would need permission from admins first (you can write to staff via the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forums).

The only good thing today is M Vijay didn't get to score century...what a pompous a*s.

 

Sure he is pompous, but he does the job. He won the final for CSK. Appam idiot title will forever belong to Sreesanth.

Unlike last year, this time around there was no individual who helped Chennai get to the finals. Every match it was someone different getting us there. Wonderful team effort.

 

They kinda slackened in the last 10 overs today (with their bowling) when they knew they had the match in the bag. Still, what a wonderful feeling seeing Ashwin take Gayle's wicket for a duck! :) And once Kohli fell it was Goodbye Arse-See-Bee for certain :P

 

Now, once again, CSK ku whistle podu!

 

 

 

 

Also, let's spare a thought in our time of happiness for the incognito Chennai Super King L(ord) Balaji :majesty: who helped us skip a match :clapping:

 

Someone said all the players retained by CSK have helped the team to win. But, in Balaji's case, even the ones who weren't retained have helped :lol:

Good start by Sri Lanka. I think Cook has to play a really big knock if England are to get a good 1st innings total.

peterson is really going through a bad patch..

 

I dont think he has scored any match winning innings for England in ODI's and Tests in like 1 year or even more...

 

Only good series he had was the last T20 WC wich England won....

What the hell just happened? The umpire stopped play and was asking the third umpire for ... what ? Harbhajan and Parthiv appealed for a catch and he gave the 3rd umpire signal when one is clearly not allowed to refer to the 3rd umpire for an edge? Even the commentators are clueless :ko:

For what ... 10 mins :huh: ?

 

And the replays showed that it wasn't a bum ball. Moreover, the only reason he would have referred to the 3rd umpire to check whether it was a bum ball would be if he thought the batsman had edged the ball ! Yet the batsman was given not out :ko:

 

Also, it was the 3rd umpire gave the batsman not out by switching on the green light ! One can never ask a 3rd umpire regarding an edge !
