1) Community live trading rooms. eg Index trade room, Forex trade room. Using web hosting interactive software like ivocalise. May need to be subscription depending on cost to host.
Also could be used as a guest trading education resource.

2) Simple competitions where members can pit their wits against each other and the markets. Small prizes always help, vouchers, trading books etc.

Forum software needs updating.

I post on other forums that work more like social media sites. E.g you get an alert every time someone quotes one of your posts. You can tag other members in threads alerting them to the conversation. The idea being that you keep coming back to see how many alerts you have.

All to often, I will post on a thread here and then totally forget about it

Live trading room - we haven't had one on T2W for years, the most recent one we had hosted on PropBoards (when it was still managed by T2W). That used the BlaB software from http://hot-things.net/ but iVoacalise looks interesting and let's you do voice conferencing.

If any one can recommend some other software, we can decide what's most appropriate. For example, video conferencing, screen sharing etc.

There's quite a history of contests on the sites (share ---> dow ---> forex contests). If anyone can come up with a concept for another type of contest, ideally hosted in the forum (like the S&P one we currently sponsor), I'd be happy to put up some prizes.

ffsear, do you have instant alerts turned on by default? It's in your Options here: http://www.trade2win.com/boards/prof...do=editoptions - see "Default Thread Subscription Mode". That way you get notified about any new posts to threads you participate in. If you mean something else (I think you do), then drop me a message with the forums and I'll take a look if it's something we can incorporate.

Ok.. how about a 'Chart of the day' Could be a weekly competition. Posters submit 2 x charts with a trade or trades they actually made with notes the where's and whys. Posts limited to 2 per person per week and one must be a trade or trades that didn't work out, as instructive as ones that did imo.

Prizes for the good, the bad and the ugly.
