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

Hello bm,
I just got iPhone and learning app, thx for another great addition to bmt. I do not see a link to traders edge in the app. (I find this area with the way the topics continually change useful). Is this something u can request? I found this thread by drilling.
Thx

The tapatalk (iphone/android) app has its own 'style' for the forum, I can't add modules like Traders Edge to it, sorry.

Tapa Talk used to work, now has all sort of problems on my Droid.

Guess this explains why.

There are no known issues with Tapatalk. I am using the latest version. Traders Edge should have zero impact on it. Please make sure you are using the latest version of the app, they change it frequently.

Reply to the tapatalk thread thread if needed.

I just reloaded the newest DROID OS and latest TapaTalk.

Everything is working as expected with latest build: ESE81

Tapatalk working fine at the moment on my iphone, everynow and then a chart will not load for awhile but that probably when I am on Edge network and not 3G, either way is better than zooming and moving when in regular download of site.
