Hi Birchy, sorry haven't been vocal for a while, have been busy with the sudden death of my main production PC, real earning work, family, etc. So, no time for hobbies but somehow could make time to periodically lose on the GGs :)
As you know I am completely new to Python and API programming so I am totally ignorant of the apparent additional charges that Betfair levy on botters.
I gawped at Fred's post when I saw it - I never realised that Betfair could take any more from your winnings than the current 5% maximum.
Is this lifetime winnings applicable for all botters? even those that don't use the API for trading, i.e. the free API like yourself... Suppose you won £250k over 10 or more years would their punitive extra charges still be applicable?
On another topic, how about you starting a very basic tutorial thread similar in approach to Mumbles on the BF Forum for VB.
Nothing fancy, just login, logout, keep alive, get all markets, get specific markets (horse racing, soccer, etc.), get prices at specific times, place bets, get results, get balance and anything else that is necessary to create a basic python bot using your library.
What do you think?
