3. Since there is 100's of thousands of threads / posts / comments on the forum, how do I filter to see the really good ones? Should I only filter by most viewed or most replied or is there other ways?
4. How can I determine which users are worth following? Obviously some have more experience than others and I would like to learn from those who have solid trading backgrounds.
5. How do I actually follow users?
6. I see some users have their usernames highlighted with a red background. What does that mean?

Thank you

#3 You can 'follow' posts and get alerts instantly or email etc.
I find the best way for me is to use the (New Posts) on the top bar.
Only posts that are new appear there when I visit and each day.
I mark them all as "Mark all forums as Read" so they are refreshed.

#4 That is a personal preference and you should weigh the comments to suit your trading style.

#5 You can ask to be on your friends list but usually I just click on the name I want to follow and "find posts by..."

#6 Highlighted names are because of forum activity. There is a formula that calculates a users profile and activity.
"You will reach Market Wizard level once your forum reputation is equal to about the top 5%"
