@Big Mike is this guy a zombie bot? @Itchymoku and us have noticed odd behaviors. One post, one chat and they have been here for years... They usually post something stupid... Any ideas?

I don't see any prior posts, no prior reported posts. You'll have to be more specific. The thread is in the wrong section and will be moved.

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.

hmmm


It usually happens once a day, sometimes they take a day or two off. Never a welcome greeting or anything other than just posting their name or an obscure trading related word or two. They never respond or make any subsequent posts. Most of the time they're elite too.

I don't know, It really doesn't make sense lol. Why would anyone go to the length of making these accounts randomly just to post a word or two and then never post again. You'd think if they just wanted the indicators they could use one account.

I've experienced this happening probably at least 30 or more times. I guess we should start reporting it.

Maybe some elaborate joke who knows.

You are saying this is happening with other random accounts (not this one)? I think it's all normal, I don't see people paying $100 to post crap and then get permanently banned for it.

If you see it again, be certain to use Report Post. That is the only way it gets logged and tracked.

I took researcher247 and Jeff Castille off the list because I noticed they have active accounts. Originally when I made the list I just went back and captured everyone's alias through some pages of the archieve that just posted their name. It seems that people thought it was funny and would post their name as a joke to mimic these bots and add humor. Seems like an ongoing joke that originated before I became active in the chat room.

Sorry, I don't see any problem. I'm not exactly sure I know what you mean by "post their name as a joke to mimic these bots". Is there an example?

Maybe it's nothing and just a coincidence with there being thousands of members that some people will feel compelled to just post their name or a couple words and then never post again. Originally I thought it was people posting their own password or other people's passwords. I don't know, But I'll post when it happens again on this thread as it keeps up because it does happen frequently.

They usually only post in the chat. The albrooks user did the same.

One post to chat with their name or trading word, maybe one post and that is it. They also tend to be elites. It seems odd because a few like this user have been here since 2009, no post or chat until today.

I just realized you were talking about the chatbox, and I see now he posted in the chatbox. How funny, I thought you were talking about forum posts.

People mistake the chatbox for the search box all the time, I think he was just trying to search.

As for the other guys typing their username, they probably just wanted to see what would happen

They are all real people, I assure you. The nice thing about Elite is how it keeps out most of the crap.
