Ultimate Magic

Addresses new and interesting links to other sites (not listed on the Genii website) that merit attention.

I'm new to the Internet and new to magic and am looking for the best places to learn. I really like this site and am glad I found it. Some of the people I have talked to online suggested I join the Ultimate Magic site. But some others said they expose a lot of stuff and I shouldn't. Anybody have any opinions?

Forget the Ultimate Magic Network! They have a bunch of hosts on a power trip and the exposure is sickning. Take a look at this link. It is a post made at Ultimate Magic by someone, and none of the moderatiors or hosts have bothered to remove it!

The site has a lot of corruption going on now, and I advise everyone to look elsewhere for their magic needs. There are places on the web a hell of a lot more serious and better. Any questions?

yes I agree, but this was taken out of context. This was the only time this ever happened, and I agree that it is odd no one removed this post....btw jimmy cards...how goes it?

Magic-Adamn, I beg to differ. This is not the first time it has happend. I use to go to the site a lot, but all the trading, etc. sickend me. I stand by my recent comment to find another site other than Ultimate Magic for your magic needs. Not just because of the exposure issue, but because of a lot of rumors going around now.

Good day,

I'm not up on any dirty dealing regarding the Ultimate Magic site, but I have visited it on a few occasions, and found nothing all that helpful to a newcomer, or for that matter, for myself either. I would agree with the post above and visit the Magic Cafe web site. There is a bounty of resources there for magicians of all skill levels.

Best,

Mike

I hated all of the people on that website who wanted to trade. There were too many newbs there. But there were a lot of people there who knew what they were doing and were great to talk to. I never looked at the library much because it was 2 card monte (Be Honest What is it?) and Card sanwitches being called Wave the Aces being posted every two seconds. Plus that site went down hill after a while. Most of the old hosts were recently fired.

I'll tell you what, for a long time I didn't mind dealing with a large group of beginners. I was a member on the Penguin board for quite awhile, but what ended up happening was that I became a reference source for every kid who bought the Sterling S&S set. I made the mistake of sending a few people a couple of basic S&S routines and within a couple weeks I was getting PM'd into the stone age by every newbie in the civilized world... demanding that I send them the routines, and in some cases, demanding that I make up some new ones so they wouldn't be doing the same stuff as the other kids that got my routines!!! Some were quite rude I should add.

That's when I basically made the Cafe my home, and man, what a difference :)

Best,

Mike
