Is there more to the question?

If they are allowed to become Elite Members; what changes?

Yeah, why not....you can keep your same rules in place as far as promoting themselves and so forth.

Today they are allowed to become Elite Members.

I am asking for a discussion on whether or not that should change.

All Elite Members are already instructed to not share any Elite content outside of the Elite section. But we all know that some vendors take the code developed here, and then resell their own version of it. We also all know that some vendors are better than others, and would never do that.

I am trying to stay neutral and solicit feedback from others. So I won't comment further and instead would like to hear from everyone else.

Sorry, meant not. I am on my phone. Just asking so people understand why or why not.

@Big Mike

I vote yes ... if a vendor breaks the rules... boot the offending vendor to the curb

If Vendors are no longer allowed to be Elite members ... Hello , Houston ... we have a problem .... Nobody and I mean Nobody is willing to give up @Fat Tails

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

Let me say that any change, if made, would allow all existing members to be grandfathered in.

on the potential for losers to take stuff that is not theirs and repackage it for sale to the unsuspecting...true that. Also though something could be done to protect the mostly clueless from the mostly unscrupulous...who happen to be mostly clueless as well.

Everyone understands that the overwhelming majority of futures.io (formerly BMT) members are here seeking something. That kind of makes us all targets. A group of 35,000+ interested or engaged in trading financial markets.

I'll clarify one thing further as well: I am referring to vendors that sell indicators or trading rooms. I categorize Platforms and Brokerages separately, even though they share the 'Vendor/Commercial Product' designation (something I may change).
