I've changed the Top 20 stats on the homepage from a 30-day window to a 90-day window.

This means that now threads created within the last 90 days will become part of the statistics, instead of only threads created within the last 30 days.

The statistics are displayed/sorted by the number of replies or numbers of views per thread. Threads older than the 90-day cut off are not displayed. The general idea with this Top 20 list is to keep the material "fresh".

However, nothing is perfect, and it highlights "fresh" topics more than it highlights "old" topics. If I set the date to forever (no age cut off) then threads that are not being regularly updated, but used to be, are still shown. I felt that the 30-day window was a good compromise, but after feedback from a user I reconsidered and changed it to 90-days.

In a perfect world the user would be able to easily switch between 30 days, 90 days, and all time. Unfortunately, this module doesn't allow that so you'll have to live with what I select for the entire group

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
