do you think gambling companies shouldn't exist, their use should be more strict or people should have their freedom to use it if they want but we should provide more educational resources for people to learn and protect themselves so they don't fall victims of their own lack of control?

interesting to think about it.
There are companies that mostly creates adverts for gambling, they generates significant profits from these gambling ads from online posts. Ofcourse we can't bring them down rather create awareness among people about the dangerous activities pulled by these gambling relatable ads. There's one thing we should know, we can't permanently stop gambling because it's general and have spread to developed and developing countries across the globe. We can only educates young minds on the dangers of gambling and provide preventive measures that would reduced the activity to its minimum ratio.

Gambling advertising is very dangerous. The fact is that by repeating the same thing over and over again, she makes gambling for someone who watches this advertisement a Normal and Common occurrence. Just a correct thing and not forbidden for anyone. That is, we see celebrities in gambling ads, this ad is shown in prime time on federal channels - and then anyone will think, "Hey, there's nothing wrong with that. You can go in, place a bet on one time." And it is from this moment that the first step towards casinos and other gambling varieties begins. This is exactly what casino promoters are trying to achieve - so that anyone who has watched the advertisement thinks that gambling does not cause any harm.
2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Youth Gambling on: September 30, 2023, 08:42:35 PM
Among young people is a result of the availability of gambling alternatives, such as sports betting and online gambling. Gambling disorders can have long-term effects on a person's ability to complete their education and choose their future, and young individuals may be particularly susceptible to acquiring these illnesses

You need to understand why gambling is so attractive for young people. The fact is that at the age of high school and university, everyone demands maximum results from students. Everyone imposes a huge responsibility on them, but sometimes students can't stand it. And gambling is a world of freedom, a world where you are your own boss and the presence of a gambling company is imperceptible, it's like an assistant. Money ceases to matter there, they are like candy wrappers that go and come to the wallet. This greatly distorts the understanding of work to achieve the goal and the very meaning of money.

Yes, Gambling addiction has strained a lot of relationships through financial instabilities emotional turmoil, social isolation, and family problems. Gambling which was meant to be a popular kind of entertainment for many and was designed to provide a temporary escape from everyday life and also help one to be more observant mentally task your brain and it is also good for your mental brain. When it becomes an addiction it causes financial strain the strain can manifest in various ways including the loss of shared savings, debt accumulation, and financial secrecy which may lead to strained communication between partners. This communication breakdown can prevent couples, friends, and associates from working together.

According to leading psychologists, addiction arises precisely because gambling gives a man incredible freedom. Think about it for yourself: modern society imposes on us the opinion that we owe everyone, that we live by the instructions, and cannot deviate from their implementation by a single step. And everything is easy and clear in gambling. Everything is raised there as if we own the situation ourselves, and the rules are clear and friendly. As if there is no casino, but there is a world where the player is free, and the casino is just a tool. Of course, any woman will not approve of such a departure from reality for a man, especially when debts begin.

The guy from this news is humiliated more and more, although he probably guesses that he will never get his eight thousand bitcoins back. He needs to accept this fact and start living without thinking about it, starting everything from scratch. Even if he finds this disk, but most likely the condition of the disk drive will be unsatisfactory for operation. Most likely there is an ide hdd, but even if it were sata, the disk can not only be irretrievably damaged by external influences, but if it was lying on the street, then humidity and temperatures finally finished crush this ide.
This guy lost 15.000 BTC when he sold his laptop in 2010 and has accepted it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=7REN3yYPY6E


And what else is left to do? Let him always think now that he could be rich, and how much I know human nature - now, always learning the price of bitcoin, he will think "but my 15,000 bitcoins could be $ 400 million." But our human psychology is very flexible and I think that he will not worry much about such a loss. In the end, the main thing is your health and the health of your loved ones, and you can always figure out how to earn money.
5  Economy / Economics / Re: How do you deal with financial stress? on: September 29, 2023, 04:38:48 AM
current economic condition are indeed can be the causes of many people to get stress thinking about their future while their financial seems like a hollow that can crumble anytime.
the only way to overcome this of course is increasing the income try getting more than one job I guess even thought it might sound silly but thats the only way to survive nowadays.
things are getting difficult and difficult, the best course of action is just adapt with it.
because I knew very well, if you aren't solving your financial problem you will always anxious, doesn't mean the world is doomed though, there's always second chance.
We cannot avoid all of this because this happens to everyone and even countries, and there is no other choice but to have a side job or additional business to help our finances.
And now we have to be smart in handling sites like this, apart from being able to minimize expenses and not buying or spending money for unimportant purposes, we are also required to have additional income.
stress or lamenting the situation and worrying is not a solution and will only make you more difficult or miserable, you should reflect and think about your abilities, and at this time we have to be creative and smart in thinking about and dealing with it. It's not as young as it says, but it has to be like that and independent.


Unfortunately, it's really hard to live without money because we always want more comfort for ourselves, the same things as successful people, more delicious food. And if there is no money, then it plunges us into stress, because of which the mood is bad all the time and all thoughts about where to get money from. Unfortunately, there is no more difficult task in the world than to figure out how to make money, and I am very glad that we are familiar with the world of cryptocurrencies, which is a promising world of freedom and, of course, earning a lot of money, you just need not be lazy to learn new things.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Mistake that prevented your big win. on: September 29, 2023, 04:33:51 AM
Unfortunately, the concept of greed is very abstract, and that's exactly the trouble. I'll explain. For example, you won as much as you wanted, and you can close all your debts. And then you think, "but if I keep playing, I can buy gifts for my loved ones and relatives." You play and win. After that, you think, "Today I'm lucky, I'll play for the last time, and I'll buy myself a car." And you win. Would you leave at this point? But you don't have your own apartment, maybe you can play ... and this problem will also be solved? That's what greed is. Our brain is ready to motivate us endlessly.
That is what a gambler who has won can think and it is a normal thing to happen because I think every gambler who wins can think like that and in the end, they will return to gambling. But unfortunately, the results will not be as they previously predicted because those who gamble cannot always win. And that is the greed that comes to gamblers so they have to be very careful in controlling themselves so that greed does not take control of them and destroy them. It would be better if they could play gambling casually without wanting to win even bigger. We must know our limits in gambling to avoid exceeding those limits.
Exactly. I think you need to set goals within reasonable limits. For example, if you decide to play slots, then it would be a good idea to stop at a win equal to the deposit you came with. For example, if you decided to play for $50, then if you win $ 100, then this would be a sufficient level to stop playing for today. After all, you can leave and think about everything that happened, and tomorrow you will come to play for 50 or 100 dollars. But one should not think that if a $50 win is received, then $ 100 will come just as easily.

Greed is human nature and it seems we cannot avoid this fact. Surely we have all experienced the same thing and sometimes it is quite fun but in the end it makes us crazy. In the end, we are only haunted by guilt and if we continue gambling, it is likely that we will sacrifice more things. So sometimes we have to be more rational and be able to win ourselves over before we get too deep.
It is true that greed is part of who we are but we still need to control it to some extent, if that is not the case then it could lead us towards a path that not only will bring you a great of misfortune to ourselves but to everyone around us, including our families, as we need to realize there are instances in which no matter what we do we cannot win, and trying to beat the odds when the odds are against you is simply a foolish idea that will never turn out well for us.

Unfortunately, the concept of greed is very abstract, and that's exactly the trouble. I'll explain. For example, you won as much as you wanted, and you can close all your debts.

8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Is gambling all about luck? on: September 28, 2023, 05:00:30 AM
Poker reflects better than any gambling game that skill comes first and luck is only secondary. I periodically watch a streamer who has been making money only from poker for 15 years. He is an example of how, through iron discipline, training with coaches, on poker simulators and constant improvement, luck was relegated to the background. Of course, during this huge period of time he encountered downswings. But even this can already be simulated and the chance of various downswings can be determined by setting such a parameter as the number of hands played. With all this I just want to say that you must think globally. If you are unlucky in a particular hand, it means absolutely nothing, the main thing is to win over a huge distance, and this will be an indicator of skill.

You are right, and in order for the "game distance" to be as long as possible, you need to play for as small amounts as possible. Nevertheless, probability theory admits that even then the player may not get lucky many times in a row and in this case you either need to continue adding a deposit or accept it. But if you add a deposit, how do you know when to stop doing it? I mean, so that the game does not turn into an uncontrolled waste of money.
And how to understand that it's bad luck for you, and not you yourself somewhere misunderstand something?
Therefore, it's not so simple.
9  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Quit gamble! Easy or Hard? Let's talk. on: September 28, 2023, 04:53:21 AM
i dont think you can force people to quit gambling , its a personal decision and not even for people who are having fun playing . how do you quit having fun ? maybe for you you got addicted and things didnt work out so you had to stop. if you have tips on how the addicted can quit i think you should post it here. i dont think anyone will want to click on that link.

Well, whether it is a personal decision or not mostly depends on the context each one of us has and is living through.
For example, someone who is independent and has a job can certainly decide what to do with their money. On the other hand if we are talking about a young person living with their religious parents in a also religious country and community, I would not be about his choice to quite gambling or not.

We could argue that eventually an addict would do anything in their power to gamble, but I personally think that depends on the stage that person would be.

In terms of influence that's affect how the person will act with how they treat their gambling participation, I like what you said about the people that surround the person who might be prone to being addicted, the chance not to fall that hard or engage that much is possible though like what you said it will be depend from how the person will take it. But again, if that person is being surrounded by people who are not a fan of this activity, his chance to bring himself into addiction might not be that far.

In order to restrain yourself from unexpected expenses, you need to take friends with you who really shouldn't be gambling fans. After all, if they are the same players, then they will not be of any use, but rather even harm. After all, they themselves can fall into a tilt or uncontrolled waste, making the situation of the player for whom they came here much worse. I think it's best to take a wife, because the husband and wife have a common budget and both worry about it not being squandered.

Well, if we are realistic, obviously most of the times wives won't agree on going to a casino with their husbands, most women do not like the activity of gambling specially if they are conservative house-wives.

It would better to go with a friend and previously to settle an agreement with them about adding money individually to a wager poll and in equal parts. The winning amounts from the gaming would also be spread equally amoung the friends. So all of them have a common interest on watching over their budget and not over spend.

If anyone here has managed to marry or keep a long lasting relationship with a woman who also enjoys gambling in a responsible way, then that man deserves my congratulations. It would be something relatively weird to see here.

You have correctly stated that most wives will not go to the casino as husbands, but I often observe new types of families when the wife is not just a housewife and someone who cooks food, but also a friend for her husband, she is ready to play computer games with him and even do extreme sports. But in general, wives will be strict about gambling, so it's still better to take friends with you for your control in games.

Recently I read a story about a family where the wife was neutral, she did not scold her husband for betting, and surprisingly, he realized at some point that he was ashamed in front of her. That she didn't give up on him, but she also suffered financially because of the losses. And in the end, her husband decided not to bet anymore. It's a pity not all stories end so well.

That's right, because knowledge without practice does not make sense. It's just a lot of theory and facts that you know, but what profit is there from them if they are not applied in any way. You can know at least all the facts of cryptocurrencies and have excellent technical analysis, but what is the point of this without investment?

But the presence of holdings but the lack of knowledge is even worse. Such an investment will lead to the fact that the trader will invest without understanding, and falling into the scam.
After that, such a bad investment will depreciate, and as a result, the deposit will be zero.

In general, one without the other cannot have profit and meaning in general.
Knowledge without action? Thats just a brain full of facts, not getting us anywhere, right? But get this. Without any knowledge, thats a crash waiting to happen to our money. Imagine having a stash of Bitcoin and zero know-how - you are the best victim for anyone, including hackers, exchanges, etc. And it is a sad end

Now, mixing both, thats where the magic happens. Knowing the ropes and taking the plunge Ė thats how we roll, and thats how we grow. With each transaction, we learn, we adapt, and we get better, aiming for that sweet spot where knowledge meets action in a perfect blend.

Therefore, in order to further expand the popularity of bitcoin around the world, you need to understand that there are two problems that need to be solved:
1) there are people who have money, but no knowledge. They don't know about exchanges, transactions, and so on. They think that if cryptocurrencies cannot be held in hand, it means that they are not essential, and any fraudster on the Internet can steal it.
2) It's a people who have knowledge but no initial deposit but they sooner or later find money and become traders or investors.

Therefore, the first point is not solved by itself, unlike the second.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Knowledge vs hodlings on: September 27, 2023, 11:23:34 AM
Those two words, if you connect them to the Bitcoin industry, are, for me, equally important. Because if you have something like that, eventually there will be a change in your life if you have Bitcoin holdings and knowledge. Obviously, you wouldn't go out of your way to own Bitcoin if you didn't find anything wrong with it.

What if you have no knowledge but buy Bitcoin and hold it long-term? Of course, at this point, while you are waiting for the right time to sell here, it is possible to learn what Bitcoin actually has and why it has become attractive to the majority of wealthy investors around the world. So, for me, if you don't have knowledge about holdings, you can make a mistake in what you choose to hold. But if you go with knowledge, for sure you won't make a mistake that you want to hold for the future.

That's right, because knowledge without practice does not make sense. It's just a lot of theory and facts that you know, but what profit is there from them if they are not applied in any way. You can know at least all the facts of cryptocurrencies and have excellent technical analysis, but what is the point of this without investment?

12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gambling Education. on: September 27, 2023, 07:33:53 AM
Many countries prohibit gambling, to the extent that they do not licence any casino in their country. This however did not completely prevent the citizens of such countries from gambling. They go extra miles by using hidden or rerouted IP addresses to gamble. Even when the casinos block these users they keep attempting to cheat both their country's law and the casino.

Also, many countries have official gambling age but their citizens also violate this age standard.
All these abnormal ways of gambling promote gambling abuse and possible addiction which further makes gambling a societal menace.

Instead of outrightly banning gambling, how about if the concerned countries officially include gambling education in their academic syllabus, just like sex education is taught in schools. Gambling education will teach the young ones the dangers of gambling and promote moderation in gambling. Will this not be a better way to handle the gambling cases?

Of course, this is not worth doing, because children really like to do the opposite. This is normal at their age, they are just trying to gain experience in their own way, even if it sometimes looks like someone puts his hand in the fire. If you start telling them about the dangers of gambling, then their attention will be strongly attracted to this activity. This will be the strongest advertisement for casinos, roulette and betting. Therefore, I think it's better not to. Depending on gambling, these are isolated cases, and they need to be worked out after the fact and individually with each player.

~~~.
Of course not if you depend on computer games, but that is a waste of time because we only do something other than just playing the game. Games like that can make us lose track of time and become lazy about doing other things so we are not productive even though our other friends are chasing their dreams.

I agree with the psychologist because, with that small chance, a person will see that he can win the game and he will try hard. Even having to sacrifice his time to achieve better results than other people.

Nevertheless, the heads of esports organizations have come up with a great way to cause addiction and the strongest motivation in children playing their computer games, such as Dota 2 or Lol or CS2. The fact is that they show how much the finalists of tournaments earn, and children see that there is a chance to become a cyberspopter, and not work all their lives. That is, in fact: when playing, children think that they are training to win a tournament where they will win money that will solve all problems. And according to the facts, they just play and play, and it won't do any good.
15  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Gamble Responsibly on: September 26, 2023, 04:59:15 AM
It is either you are not deeply addicted or have a strong will to get out of addiction.  It is also possible that you have noticed that you are getting into addiction and acted accordingly to prevent it.  Either way it is good to know that you are able to beat that uncontrollable urge, I know addiction is hard to beat especially when a person's addiction is too deep.  I was also addicted once, not to gambling but to MMO games.  It was really hard to control the urge and I do everything just to get online every day and stay as much as my student budget can do.  After I have spent my money, I ought to stay on the computer cafe just to watch others playing that game.  It was hard to get rid but eventually, the game shuts down  Grin.  I was lucky back then although was devastated when the game wasn't available anymore.
I feel lucky to still realize that I was almost too deep in gambling, so I decided to reduce my gambling activities. It was a difficult time for me because there was a strong urge to continue gambling while I kept thinking about the faces of my family. But with the desire that I could change immediately or not at all, I continued to try as hard as I could to reduce my gambling activities.

I used to really like the Need for Speed series games from the first to the last. It took up my time playing the game because I just played it all day without stopping except to eat and go to the bathroom. But I was lucky to be able to stop playing the game because there was a sudden need that required me to leave town for several months. And that's what made me stop playing the game. Fortunately, I have finished the whole series Grin


I believe that dependence on computer games is not terrible, because in fact a person wants to play them only because of dopamine. Get harmony of pleasure. But it's easy to stop, because such games do not promise you a cash prize and a life change. And these are exactly what makes many people think that playing they can really change their lives, as for example it happens in slots slot machines.
Psychologists have found out that if there is even a small chance of winning money in the game, then a person perceives the game in a completely different way and his motivation to play it increases.
16  Economy / Economics / Re: How to spend money determines whether you can avoid unnecessary problems on: September 26, 2023, 04:53:17 AM

Please let me clarify first: anyone who is extremely poor or wealthy is not included in this discussion. Only those who are employed with steady income, some savings and spare time will find this topic useful. I guess most of us are doing fine now but financially we have to face one common problem: how to spend money.  This issue leads to many consequences if not handled properly. Here I would not start any broad and subjective agruement. To deliver my message clearly, I am using some specific examples to elaborate. For example, a lot of peole complain that their income is not enough to cover their daily expenses so they can't save much money while...they spend seven bucks on a cup of coffee almost every morning, throw a hundred dollars on some gym membership cards but never show up training, have dinner with some random girl in an expensive restaurant, buy drinks in bars and waste hundreds of dollars... The list goes on and on. If you live this kind of lifestyle and at the end of months, you are running out of money or can't pay the mortgages, whose fault is this ? I can not provide any statisitics but I am sure that many people have fallen in the trap and can not get out.  I hope you are not one of them.

That's right, such a problem is found everywhere. This is called spontaneous spending. For example, you want a smart watch for yourself, but you understand that it is expensive and do not buy them. Then some event happens in your life that pushes you to this purchase, for example, your friend bought himself such a watch and brags. And then you go and buy them. At the same time, later regretting, because this money could have been invested. From this way of thinking, it helps to keep a diary with all expenses and earnings.
I do that.

If the purpose is valid then it is okay but most of us have just seen it somewhere like from a friend or on social media. We tend to want it already even if it is useless to you. Let's say you want a smart watch as it is needed for your productivity at work. That's good but if it's just for fancy things that's not good.

If we do have tons of money that makes it impossible to go broke then it is okay to have those kinds of fancy things but if we are just struggling financially then it is not good as it makes us more stressed.

We live in an era of consumption, when people with a good standard of living buy things without even thinking about whether they need these things or not.
I make these purchases in order to show others my status. And for this, many people are willing to shell out huge amounts of money just to show off how much they can spend. This is called a consumer society. I believe that you need to buy only the necessary things, as is customary, for example, in Sweden or Norway, where people choose only really practical things. Which will serve these people for a long period of time without breaking. This approach also makes it possible to solve the problem of ecology and uncontrolled use of resources on our planet.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: A matter of family conflict regarding Bitcoin. on: September 26, 2023, 04:43:28 AM
No matter how unmarried people imagine the complexity of life in a family, they will always underestimate the real complexity. It is necessary that the characters be similar, the attitude to life and cleanliness in the apartment, and of course the attitude to money. As far as I understood from the news, it is unlikely that his now deceased wife gave him permission to invest so much money. Women do not take such risks with money, so men generally do not ask permission to invest money. Apparently she asked about these almost 20k, and her husband had already lost it.
They were necessary for the life of this family, at a time when only extra money could be invested.The loss will not change the financial situation of the family.
A family can be strong if the spouses can plan their future together, if they have a common budget, a common vision of where they are going and how they can achieve their goals. A lot of things are important, they maintain balance in the family, sometimes you need to make concessions, itís really not easy. I noticed that if a family is wealthy, then they have significantly fewer conflicts over finances. If one spouse is more responsible for the finances, then financial management should be his responsibility, but if the other spouse does not support an investment because he sees it as a big risk, then you need to find another investment, family is most important.
Ideally, thatís should be the case but I think when it comes to investment, husbands are more aggressive to participate that even if their spouses are against with it, still they will pursue it without them knowing. And when they start losing, thatís when they realized that their wives should know about it, and when these wives overreacted to it, these frustrated husbands suddenly lose their control and burst out with anger.

Right. Men and women are too different by nature. We understand how hard money is given and any opportunity to earn more, and maybe even make a life change affects us very much. m. we know the value of money - it's a very hard routine, with responsibility and boredom, working with people we don't like, and so on (I mean ordinary fulltime work). And women, in fact, do not care where a man will bring money from and how much he will get tired in their search. Knowing this, men are ready to hide investments, taking risks, but realizing that if, for example, tomorrow the yuitcoin will be 100 thousand dollars, then this will strongly encourage him to forget about the hated fulltime work.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Quit gamble! Easy or Hard? Let's talk. on: September 26, 2023, 04:37:25 AM

Yes, stopping is not easy, especially if you are addicted. Still, we are responsible for ourselves, so if we are addicted, we should start introspecting and looking for a cause to heal ourselves. However, most gambling addicts will find it difficult to recognize that they are addicted to gambling because all they have is the desire to continue gambling. But when awareness from within says that we are addicted to gambling and this must be stopped, we really need help from other people to stop gambling.

Yes, most people don't want to admit that they are addicted to gambling, maybe they feel embarrassed so they don't want to admit it. However, if his gambling addiction is allowed to continue, he will spend more money and leave a lot of debt. The best option is to try to stop before all the money is gone and you go bankrupt.

If a gambling addict cannot overcome his addiction on his own then it is better to ask someone else or a professional for help. It's not good to be an addict although I'm not against gambling, but anything in excess definitely has a bad impact

True, if it's really hard for someone who already addicted but he already admitted the addiction inside him, asking for help from your love ones  to assist you to work your problem with professional to know what's the best practices and remedies to lessen  or to completely move away from gambling can be a good resort, with the guidance of professional, it will be possible to trace the root cause and eliminate it inside your mind. A big help to realize  and quit away from your gambling addiction.
Often even the scenario is as follows: an addicted gambler begins to steal money or sell things from home, his relatives give him to doctors or psychologists, the gambler pretends that he has taken the path of correction, doctors or psychologists see that he is lying, the gambler truly admits the problem and is cured.
I think there are exceptions when the player himself notices his addiction and goes for treatment, but this happens very rarely.
I find a similarity between gambling addicts and drug addicts where both people when they are addicted try to say that they are not addicted but they do the same thing afterwards. For example, someone sells various household items while managing gambling money. Although they present themselves well to others, it is not difficult to understand that something else is going on behind the scenes. I agree with you that people who are recognize their addiction can eventually recover from their addiction. Although that may be difficult for many but not impossible.

Among all the stories of addicted gamblers, the second I heard - only one was able to find out his trouble on his own. By the way, this was the only gambler girl I know at the moment. She was a very smart analyst, and became interested in betting. At some point, she started winning eight out of ten bets and lost control. But at the same time, after losing a lot, she realized that she had accumulated too many loans at bad interest rates, and she decided to stop. She confessed to her mother and they cured her.

How do you think these developed nations will fill vacancies in their nations and get cheap labor if the population of these developing nations is reduced?

In countries with poor economies, there are problems with overpopulation, this is not the problem. The problem is a corrupt government that does not solve this problem well. Of course, as China, it is possible to strictly limit the number of children in the family, but why? It is better to create conditions under which all this large number of citizens will be involved in the economy, and this can give a strong jump in the economic vector of the country. It's just that the governments of such countries need to provide affordable schools and educational institutions, and then jobs.
I agree with you regarding this, of course, the government has a role in this--the problem of overpopulation and its effects. However, we should not be just focusing there, we cannot deny the fact that the people are also responsible. While the government lacks the support it should be giving to the people, the people are just being too reliant on the government. Both parties have responsibilities to take in order for the problem of overpopulation to be dealt with. No matter how many public schools that provide free education and job fares there are, if the people refuse to make a move then it will be all for nothing. The support should indeed come from the government, as that is the responsibility they have for the people they are governing, but the action of change should also come from the people themselves because if they do not choose to help themselves and continue with their lifestyle of producing kids without knowing what they will do in order to provide the needs of these kids in the future and just hold on to what the government should be doing, nothing will change.

In this case, to solve the problem of overpopulation, the citizens of the country themselves need motivation to change their situation. I mean the motivation to study in schools, institutes, and then the desire to work well, and not to serve time in the workplace. In general, that quality is called engagement. Parents should also impose it on their children, creating strong motivation and, of course, qualities such as good upbringing and kindness. Then the changes will be complete.

В кампании Roobet произошла большая чистка, про просьбе проекта БМ был вынужден сократить бюджет кампании и тем самым пришлось удалить 23 участника.

Unfortunately I bring some bad news this week, I've been tasked with downsizing this campaign quite significantly and that means quick removals done in large chunks. If you get removed, please note that it's nothing personal and not anything particular about your posting style or habits. It's a tough decision but one that has to be made nonetheless. Thank you for this time that we've worked together and hopefully we can do so again in the future, I'll keep working on expanding this campaign further down the line too and if we do that, previous participants will have first dibs on open spots.
Если не ошибаюсь участников из ру локала это не коснулось.


При этом можно сказать, что кампания вернулась к исходному количеству участников. Примерно динамика изменения была такая:
Неделя - Участники:
1 - 32
10 - 44
90 - 60
180 - 60
183 - 32
Извиняюсь что не таблицей, неудобно со смартфона.

Видимо промоутеры Roobet постоянно отслеживают ценность кампании и сейчас, анализируя данные увидели что ожидаемого выхлопа нет.
Но думаю что как ее сейчас сократили, так в любой момент могут и снова раздуть.
