I think it would be good to have a prediction game. the prediction "POLL" can be associated in the respected match's review thread.

Is bookie system good. One has to bet before match starts. If the person who bets is right, wins the cash points ?

could we do it nice and easy every one make a prediction (on the forum)
then we do a table at the end and the person with the right prediction get 1points
the points go to a master table for each year

Let start with simple poll system / just reply (reply is better). once we have enough posts, we can go with custom mod.

also, once we have forum ready, we can email all 4500+ users to be active in the forum. If even 100 becomes active, we will have sucessful game.

If you mean rules and regulation and how to play, sure you can. The rules will posted when forum is made. Also, why we need scoring. It will be simple game, where ppl will reply. Their reply do not attract any points. Once we have obvious reason to include custom mod. we will have scoring system etc. all

True. I think we should have it at both. We will create new thread for each such match and will put link to prediction game in the thread itself. like link is Cricket Highlights - Competitions (http://www.cricket-highlights.com/competitions.php)

So, this way, we have comments, discussion and game.

If you think only forum is ok, we can go with it.

I am afraid we cannot have that on homepage as you want. We currently wants to decrease length of forum and adding on homepage would always put pressure on our policy.

But we might have link from homepage or navbar. Also, if this forum looked successful we will try to put it on homepage.
