...I want to throw another topic in the ring as I'd like to know how TST Combine trades should be rated...
Should we consider them as "Cash" since they should be treated exactly like having real money on the line in order to get a funded (real money) account, or should we consider them as "Sim only" trades because many people might think that there's no psycological issue involved (which I can strongly deny for myself).

I think market replay is only available the next trading day and if you use market replay you will see this behavior because of trades despairing for example someone posts on one trading day x trades and the next day he posts again x trades but if you look back (if you can look back) on the previous trading day you expect that there will be the trades from the previous day and in market replay you will not see this.
I think if someone is doing this he will get caught some day.
We just have too have some rules for the journal section and yes there will be always someone that tries too break them, that is just normal behavior in our world. for example If you drive in your care you have to respect the speed limit but having a speed limit does not mean you cannot go faster then the speed limit indeed if you exceed the speed limit you will get a bill for it.
So we live in a world with rules and we need them here on futures.io (formerly BMT) too and if some one breaks them:
First ´´bill´´= close thread
Second ´´bill´´= This in case the same member is caught doing something intentionally twice then yes BAN him.
Not correct, at least not the last time I used NT a while back.
I know you want more rules, and I've given you my best answer as to why that won't work.
I am against adding more and more rules.
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.

The lesson is that anything can be faked, as @Big Mike has said, and nothing can truly be verified.
So the problem, which is definitely the integrity of the forum, is up to the attitudes and the culture of the members. A culture of honesty and sharing real information is one of the best things about this forum, and cannot be lost without harming everyone.
Unfortunately, I have no more practical ideas than that, but I think this thread may be helping; it's at least raising the issue and getting it discussed.
