How you can help Gaming floor ?
Perhaps you're new to the site or have been visiting Gaming floor for a number of years. Perhaps you've also wondered how you could contribute or help ? Yes/No

Here's one way...
I always require casino website links, dealer training schools, sites dealing with gaming/casino history or other casino staff websites etc...
Simply email the link or use the ADD URL form.

Ian Sutton - editorial@gamingfloor.com
P.S. If you are not sure if a casino or website is listed (or the description I have is accurate) please first visit the appropiate continent category. Thx.

Folks. Two things.
As I've said before these pages are protected from search engine indexing. So your email address will not be spammed across the entire www. Try a piece of text in Google.

If you ever want a message taking down just email me. But so it's quick please don't forget to tell me which page it's on  - eg. March-April 2005.
 

and a third thing... Gamingfloor ALWAYS needs more job listings. Especially good'uns.
People like to read 'em and they also enable me to pay the bills and keep the show on the road.  :)
Thx  Ian

HELLO FROM!: Nigel French
I want to know why the picture you show at the top of the messages page shows 6 blokes who are all in good shape and none are overweight, In my experiences on ships most were beer swilling podgey louts like you and I. Lets have a picture of a few drunken slobs or fit birds.
E-MAIL: nigel.french@photo-me.co.uk

Hello Nigel, 
I have the picture above and have received a couple of enquiries about it. I will have to dust off the scanner and show the Norway's Casino Olympian's as they were at their peak. Of course no one from the screwdriver carrying brigade was ever up early enough to take part :). 
 

1st May
Copying of Gaming floor content.
I recently (Yesterday and a month or so ago) had to contact a British webmaster who runs Poker and Internet gambling websites. He had illegally copied huge chunks of Gaming floor sometime during last years's World Cup. This included the Message Board, Employment section, Conferences & Exhibitions, British & Australian casino listings. They appear to have now been removed which is good news.

Copying of this particular section I believe is extremely serious as the pages (and your email addresses) are protected from being harvested by robots. Needless to say if I come across further instances of illegal copying (theft) of content I will not hesitate to take action.
Ian
