This place needs traders. But you are not one. You should go to horse betting forums.

No it wasn't. It closed down because after paying the membership fee, the members realised there was zero worthwhile content.

Is there anything else you wish to know?

Its a fair question.

We're 2.5hrs in after the London open. Only 5 threads have been updated in that time but only 1 is active - 3 are copy and pasted daily analysis reports, one is this enquiry, the sole active thread is dentist007's Trading with p/f.

What's the answer?

It is because members are busy trading the London session.

Active participation by the administrators for one. More moderation using -- as I've suggested -- the old TL model. Partitioning commercial pitches for yet another. It can be done if there's the will to do it. (And I recognize that this thread is nearly ten years old, but it's a subject that should be revisited.)

I've always considered Timsk to be a model of Administrative impartiality; he's always made it very clear when expressing his personal as opposed to "official" views. He is also very good at pointing people in the right direction when they are searching for knowledge et cetera. Short of coming round to your trading desk and doing it for you, I'm not sure what more he should be expected to do.

It would be informative to list the posts that the administrators have made over the past 30 days and where those posts have been made.

Well dbp, I'm sure you know how to do this but, for the benefit of anyone who doesn't, go to the profile of the member of interest ---> click on the 'Statistics' tab ---> then 'Find all posts by (Username)'. Job done.

In my case, the bulk have been to the Brexit thread. There haven't been many - but I've been on holiday for 10 days to Italy. Great country, although I don't understand how they eat so much pizza and pasta, yet still manage to stay slim!
