Scrub anywhere in videos

We’ve moved our videos over to a streaming server, which means that you can now scrub anywhere in the video without it having to load first. In the past, if you want wanted to open up a video and jump to the 30 minute mark, you would have to wait for 30 minutes worth of the video to download. Now you can just click on the timeline at the 30 minute mark, and the video will play from there.

Give it a try.

“We then do 1 of 3 things. First, and most popular is to go over hand histories of sngs/mtts that the student has already played. I explain the hands I would have played differently and fix any mistakes I see right away. So they get leaks fixed after 1 session with this method. Second, we can go over hand histories of tournaments I have played and it tough spots I ask them what they would do and explain why I did the plays I did. Third, we can have a Q&A session. They prepare questions ahead of time or tough hands they played and I answer questions they have about any poker related topics. We can also discuss poker concepts or go over areas of the game they struggle with.”

Set up your Blogroll on SharkScopers

We’ve implemented a new blogroll feature so that bloggers can display a list of their favorite blogs. This was blogroll.gifrequested feature (by our member, TripleAceIRL) that we agreed is an essential option for all blogs. You can add either bloggers from SharkScopers or other websites — no restrictions. This optional feature is located on the sidebar of your own blog.

Adding someone’s blog to your blogroll is considered a big compliment, and visa versa. It’s a way of telling that person that you follow/support their blog, and to encourage your readers to check their site out. If you have friends who blog, you should also encourage them to link to your blog, to gain more readers / commentors.

We also brought back and slightly improved the blog archive feature that we used to have on the beta site. You can now see a summary of each users posts per month and read all of their monthly archives.

We’re now accepting MoneyBookers payments

We’ve added MoneyBookers as a new payment option for Purchasing credits on SharkScopers. Moneybookers is a similar payment processor to PayPal, but they’re available in a lot of places where PayPal isnt.

If you already use PayPal and are happy with the service, then stick with PayPal. If PayPal isn’t available to you or if you’re looking for a different option, MoneyBookers is probably the best choice.


Activity Feed for Videos and Blogs

We’ve introduced a forum style activity feed for our videos and blogs categories as a clear and simple way of viewing the newest posts and comments in these categories. They’re located underneath their menu items in the drop-down list.
This should keep discussions relevant longer and show which topics are generating the most interest.

If you haven’t already, critique a video you’ve unlocked, join in on a discussion, or start your own. SharkScopers is an extremely community oriented site. We’ve seen much higher interest in the videos that have multiple positive comments vs. the ones with negative or no comments, and authors love to see a reply on their posts.
