First off, congratulations to @Big Mike, the moderators, and other members here on 10 years!

I had an idea for a journal contest prize but didn't know where to put it so thought I'd share it here. Please feel free to move this thread/post elsewhere if you feel it doesn't belong here.

I appreciate and respect the prizes that sponsors have furnished in the past so please don't take this negatively, but I'm journaling to improve myself as a trader, not for a prize. I've had a journal in the elite section here and have posted every trade I've taken for just over 3 years now. I can count on one hand the number of times that other members have piped in with constructive criticism or suggestions.

My idea is see if some of the great past webinar guests or contributors on the site would be willing to review and offer suggestions to the winners' of the journal contest. I was thinking of someone like Dr. Brett, @FuturesTrader71, @Jigsaw Trading, @kevinkdog, Adam Grimes, or anyone else who focuses on and talks about having a solid plan and process behind trading. The commitment wouldn't have to be that big and could just consist of a half hour phone discussion.

This wouldn't necessarily have to pertain to the trading results, but could be along the lines of journal structure, metrics being used, the way the person journaling is talking to themselves, or any other suggestions to make the process of journaling more effective.

Just a thought, let me know if you think this could be a good idea.
