2011 Wish List for TL

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

I'd like to preface these comments by saying that TL is without a doubt my favorite site on the web, and I spend more time and visit TL more frequently than any other site or forum. I sincerely wish MadMarketScientist well in his continued efforts to build upon and improve what James and the TL community has built over the last four years or so.

 

While my posting at TL has been constrained lately, I still check in several times a day. Lately, I have noticed a few things that have made these visits somewhat aggravating. Rather than keep these to myself, I thought I'd share them here to see if anyone else had similar concerns. And, as I am not the only one with an opinion, I thought why not a general thread where TL users could make suggestions that may make the TL experience even better than it already is.

 

One benefit of having taken a step back from active posting is that I have been able to identify a few things that I feel would make visiting TL more user friendly and/or somewhat less vexing.

 

So, here are my initial "Wish List" items for making TL

 

First, I would like to suggest that the Most Viewed Threads list reside on the homepage - if these are the threads that most folks (including myself) come here to view, why not make sure that they are always and forever easily located and accessed. This way, ifyou are here to check out the latest on the Reading Charts thread, the Price/Volume thread, or Walter's Forex theread, for example, you could easily find it and open the thread right from the home page without having to go searching for it.

 

Second, I would like to be able to turn off the pop-up box advertising the "TL Starter's Kit." I know MMS wants to increase registered viewers and capture new e-mail addresses, but there must be a better way to do it than having a pop up form show up every time I visit TL or chaneg pags at the site.

 

Third, I would like for SureshBajaj, author of the "Daily blah blah blah ..." threads to consolidate his posts into one "The Daily SureshBajaj Outlook" thread. There is no reason that one user should be allowed to clutter the homepage with 7 of 12 recently posted threads, especially when the information in those seven threads is equally useless and lacking in interesting content.

 

So, for now, that is my TL "wish list."

 

I wish you all all the best in the coming New Year!

 

Best Wishes,

 

Thales

Thank you Thalestrader for bringing up these points. I was thinking about starting a thread myself for posting these points.

 

The pop-up box advertising the "TL Starter's Kit" shows up on my screen as well, every time I check out Tlab. My browser remembers my ID and Pass for Tlab, so I am automatically logged In, but this pop up still shows up every day !!

 

Secondly, this SureshBajaj is EXTREMELY Annoying !!

I just could not understand "Why and How" can he afford to waste so much of his time and energy in posting such CRAP :spam: on a daily basis ! Don't he has any other work to do ? Anyway, whatever his motives might be behind posting in so many threads, I would sincerely request MadMarketScientist to please move all his posts in one SINGLE thread. I know this might go against the normal rules, but this SureshBajaj does not looks like a normal guy and he definitely deserves all his threads to be combined in one single Thread. Otherwise it is very irritating to see his Crap posts cluttering the "recently posted threads" section.

 

I respect him as a member and I appreciate his right to post on this forum. That is why I am simply requesting to LIMIT his posts and threads to a Single Thread, so that all other members do not have to suffer because of him.

 

Hope Tlab will keep on making higher highs in the new year. Best wishes to all members for the coming new year. :beer:

On the home page, one used to be able to hold the pointer over the title of a thread and it would reveal the first line or two of the most recent post of that thread...that is no longer the case with the new format. That is something I miss.

 

Also, I just don't think all the wrinkles have been ironed out with the new format...there are some bugs here and there...links that don't work, the "attach file" window for a post is little funny...I have to select the file, then scroll way right to find the "upload" button...stuff like that.

 

Also, the "lastest posts" part of the home page is a little messed up...it is not accurately providing the most recent posts at TL like it used to. Like Thales has already pointed out, some threads aren't showing up, and right now I see some of the same exact threads (the link is the same) in both columns!

I second a vote for the "most viewed" threads list on the home page

 

and add a request to perform searches by poster that will bring up the exact posts.

 

For example... if I search on "kiwi" or "jperl" or "brownsfan", I want to bring up links to the exact pages of their most recent posts instead of links to the entire thread they happen to be buried in.

 

There may be a way to do this already that I am not aware of.

I also favour useless spammers (or even useful spammers) being limited to one thread. The only reason I haven't been down his throat is because his threads are so recognizably a waste or time that I haven't wasted my time there.

 

Re the popup. The easy solution is the adblock+ extension for google chrome. After a few times I chose to block it ... and it has gone for good now.

 

 

Re the search for posts vs threads. First, on advanced search you can select that but I agree that the default search should be to posts not to threads - I usually end up having to try again to get the posts.

This is what I mean -

It seems that MadMarketScientist does not visit this page often -"Search: New Posts " , that's why he might not be aware that how irritating it is, to most of the Tlab members who check this page everyday.

Actually I vote for the irritating spammer to be banned or banished to a single thread.

 

I also liked the ability to rest my cursor over the post and see the first few lines of the last one so I could decide if it was likely to be worth looking at when I was on the front page. That seems to have gone and there are now two columns of new posts that are different but not in a way that makes it clear why.

 

 

I also vote for the Guru label to disappear ... such post based ratings are more suited to a file sharing board.

Until Jack Schwager calls me for Market Wizards III, this is the only shot I have at being a "Market Wizard." Please, Kiwi, allow this foolish trader his delusions of grandeur!

 

As an aside, I too would very much like to see the thread preview return to the recent posts menu on the home page.

 

Best Wishes,

 

Thales

Hi everyone,

 

Thanks for all your input. I just wanted to do a quick post to let everyone know that all of these issues and suggestions are being noted and will be looked at. If these are selected to be implemented, some things will take longer than others. I'm not a techie so I don't know how long these could take exactly.

 

Any specific problems or suggestions should be noted in the suggestions thread, but maybe keep this thread for some bigger ideas and overall user experience type ideas. I will consider doing an update thread as well if people like that idea.

I'd like the "traders who have visited today" to be re-enabled. I always liked to be able to see if any of my od friends were up and around.

 

Also, it seems as though the "currently viewing this thread" has been turned off as well. I thought that was also a good feature.

 

Best Wishes,

 

Thales

And maybe this option already exists, and you can kind of find it through unread posts, but another forum that I used to read all the time, would log every single post you made labeled "Your Posts" and it would show if someone's commented on it. That way if you don't log on for a day, you can still find it easily. Maybe this is already on here, but I haven't found it.

What happened to the picture viewer window that would pop up when you click on an attached image and allow you to click through all the attached images in a post? I'm not sure about how anyone else feels, but I liked that. Although, one thing that I didn't like about it was that some ads (Oanda) would stay in front of the picture viewer and would block the picture.

 

Also, what happened to the multi-quote button?

 

Thanks,

 

Cory

    • This looks like a beginner question, so I'll say... Depends. Stock market studies usually focus on one of two areas; Fundamental or Technical. The fundamental trader wants to know all about the company: Who is the CEO? What does the history of company earnings look like? How does the company compare with others in the same or similar business? They often read and study the company's annual reports. The technician usually doesn't care much about the company details. If the stock price is going up, they should be a buyer. If the stock price is going down, they should be a seller. A small portion of investors believe they should know both disciplines. If you don't know which of the above are most appealing to you, ask about good books on general markets that include both fundamental and technical trading philosophies and techniques. Or ask about good fundamental books. Or ask about good technical trading books. I have about 800 texts. About 80% are technical, 20% are fundamentally inclined, so I wouldn't know what to suggest without more information from you.

    • Date : 11th November 2019. Events to Look Out For Next Week 11th November 2019.Important events are coming up this week, with UK, China and US inflation and GDP releases.Monday – 11 November 2019 Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK growth has “slowed materially” this year due to Brexit uncertainty and global trade wars. September forecasts see GDP growth steady, while the preliminary outcome for Q3 is anticipated to slow down. Tuesday – 12 November 2019 ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are seen unchanged at 3.8% y/y in the three months to September. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.9%. ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Economic Sentiment for November is projected at -22.7 from the -22.8 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to decline slightly further to -32.5 from -23.5. A lower than expected outcome ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment. Wednesday – 13 November 2019 Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (NZD, GMT 01:00) – The RBNZ is widely expected to proceed with a 25 bp cut to 0.75% as it continues to ease policy amid the slowing in growth. However, it will be interesting to see whether RBNZ will signal further easing in contrast with the latest encouraging economic data. Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 09:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in October after dipping to 1.7% in September and August from 2.1% in July. Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% October headline CPI rise is anticipated with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective September readings of flat and 0.1%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 1.7% for a third consecutive month, just as core prices rise 2.4% y/y for a third consecutive month. An up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 is expected due to harder comparisons and some lift from tariff increases that should leave gains in the 2.4% area, which may help ease concerns about persistent inflation undershoots of the Fed’s 2% objective. Powell’s 2-day Testimony (USD, GMT 16:00) – Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell testifies before Congress, providing a broad overview of the economy and monetary policy. Thursday – 14 November 2019 Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – While the unemployment rate is expected to have increase at 5.3% in October, employment change is expected to have stabilized, at 15K compared to 14.7K last month. Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Retail Sales are expected to have dipped with a -0.9% ex-auto figure on a m/m basis. Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 13:30) – Eurozone Q3 GDP growth held steady at 0.2% q/q – a better than expected report that highlighted once again that it is a mistake to reduce the Eurozone economy to the German manufacturing sector alone. The same outcome is expected on Thursday as well, at 0.2% q/q for Eurozone preliminary reading. Friday – 15 November 2019 Retail Sales (USD, GMT 14:30) – A 0.4% October gains for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figures have been estimated, following a -0.3% September headline dip with a -0.1% ex-auto figure. Gasoline prices should give a boost to retail activity given an estimated 4% increase for the CPI gasoline index. Unit vehicle sales should ease in October with a dip to an estimated 17.0 mln pace from 17.2 mln in September. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 2.6% rate in Q4, following the 2.9% Q3 clip. Always trade with strict risk management.
