Never for this one. Due to my illness I could not make this happen in a timely manner, the amount of work involved to create the voting system is many many hours, and it came at a time when I was very ill. So unfortunately, this thread is all we have for year 2012.
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. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

I don't think it's too late at all, can someone in the community help with a voting system. I, for one, would love to help. I think it would be a mistake to let this go, personally. I think it's a very useful part of the site, one that I refer back to now and again.
