Re: Suggestions

Hi,

Good idea with the suggestions.

1. A help or FAQ section would be great.

For someone new on the site, it takes some time to figure things out.

For instance, I had to figure out the info on premium members by myself. I found it eventually by myself, but it is kind of hidden.

Or, a little bit of transparency about the user status and how certain levels are obtained would be helpful, too (i.e. the X% Trader IQ, or the status "Complete", "Market Wizard", "Guru", etc.). I haven't found a section on this site where the logic behind it is explained.

Or, what are the consequences of deleting visitor messages. When I tried to delete one, I had to give a reason why I want to delete it and the only option checked was "Soft' delete - Leave "Deleted" Message". What does that mean? Where is this explained?

Or, what is the "Permalink" in the visitor message section?

2. Further, when I logged in on this site via my cellphone, my cellphone number was automatically saved in my "About me" page, public for everyone to see (this is the only explanation to me, as I would never post my phone number on a public site). That's not good and in certain countries even illegal to do so. I just saw it by chance and removed it. At least one should be asked whether this information can be saved and you could opt out.

That's for the moment what comes to my mind.

Regards,
k

Anyway, I just wanted to mention that this is a great forum!

I've tried also other forums, but except for one, they all attract a lot of childish folks and the quality of the discussions suck big time. No fun to be around there...

MMS, you somehow managed to attract some intelligent people here and, more importantly, some good traders. To me, quality is more important than quantity...

Thank you for that! Keep up the great work!

Thanks also to TheNegotiator for posting such great thread topics which often lead to very interesting discussions!

Re: Suggestions

In the edit profile section:

non-standard linkedin profiles need ability to be added. my linkedin link does not look like the example you give.

http://www.linkedin.com/in/traderslaboratory
vs
http://th.linkedin.com/pub/jon-grah/51/14/895

Suggestions-traders-laboratory-linkedin-error.png

perhaps the user should be able to add their entire link, and you can just check to see if the linkedin word is contained within the first part of the url?

Re: Suggestions

There is a new user who is flooding the forum with posts. Putting them on ignore doesn't help because their posts are still returned by "Latest Posts" and "Today's Posts".

Can the "Latest Posts" and "Today's Posts" be made to remove posts if made by users on your ignore list?

Re: Suggestions

I agree. Making posts every three minutes is just another form of spam, particularly when they're mostly copy-and-paste.

probably a spammer building post counts to avoid the spam-detector.
