I've added a new feature to the site, nicknamed "Trader's Edge", where we'll highlight some of the best discussions and indicators on the site.



Enjoy,

Mike

This is one of the most beneficial additions to the site in recent memory. Thanks for the upgrade, I really enjoy this. Although the multiple efforts are helpful through out the forum, it is good to have a focus at times, or feature. Moving forward, how will you decide on the featured items? Is this by volume (# of posts, etc.), or by another selection process? Love it!

Cool, thanks for the feedback. I was beginning to wonder if anyone noticed

This is part of a long-term plan of several major upgrades to the site. Going forward, stories will be selected based on a combination of everything you stated. The general idea is how beneficial it is to the viewer, and/or how unique it is to the site. Right now the stories are being picked by me manually, but I'm trying to be as objective as possible. Feel free to make suggestions.

No specific feedback at this point, I guess I was more curious than anything on the content. I guess some of the 'wizards,' or 'experts' would be the contributors that I would lean on for their advice on the must-haves in the Trader's Edge. With that said, I might get more opinionated as I move forward, who knows.

If I had a choice, I would rather have "Traders Edge" a forum rather than something to be maneuvered around every time I login.

I think it will prevent people from doing searches in the chatbox. That is a good thing.

That would be great personally i find it a real boon to negotiate past every time.

Edit: Or is there a way to minimize it or something so those who want it can check it out and otherwise it doesn't show up....?

I will make it collapsible like the other modules as soon as I have some time to do so.

Also, it's part of a bigger picture, eventually the home page will be a landing page to jump off from and won't contain the category forum listing directly as it does now. Instead, it will just contain some recent posts, threads, top 10 lists, traders edge, and some other new stuff I am working on.

Most users are on the forum are intimidated by it, such as "I don't know how to..." and the list goes on from there. The forum will be built for these users as the majority, and is aimed at trying to gain their participation in the forum itself.

However, I always try to make it so power users can skip over the newbie type stuff. I'm a power user too, I am on this forum 12 hours a day, I don't want to navigate stuff I don't need either

We have lots of new stuff planned. Stay tuned.

Mike
