Opinions have been sought, that's what these threads are. What are you expecting in terms of solicitation? Whether someone trades or not, they're still more valuable for the site than someone who can't be even bothered to give an opinion on the websites future direction.If you look at this thread and the main contributors to it, it is worth considering how much they contribute to the forum in terms of trading chat before basing the forum around their opinions.
Otherwise, it's going to be a case of the squeaky wheel gets the oil.
Why not solicit the opinions of people that actually trade and discuss trading? Why are the opinions of those that do nothing but complain so important?
I spent 12 months in Japan. One of the many things I learnt there is that you cannot make decisions by committee.Why don't you give your opinions then instead of complaining about people that complain.
No one knows your opinion if you don't give it.
Not having a pop, just an observation
So I take it you aren't an advocate of Soft Systems Methodology being used for software analysis and designI spent 12 months in Japan. One of the many things I learnt there is that you cannot make decisions by committee.
So - my opinion is not going to help because having more diverse opinions won't help. I am biased as I am a vendor. Others are biased because they have a stick up their ar$e about T2W.
T2W is a business. It needs direction. No-one is really going to buy into any kumbaya nonsense that the members come first. The members will come first as long as this is in line with what makes the business grow. If not, it'll go the way of the Twinkie.
Steve, please can I have your thoughts on two features I have suggested many times but had no feedback on: Firstly, the option to "follow" another member, and be advised when they have made a new post (so members can easily see posts they are likely to be interested in). Secondly, the option to mark a thread as "unread" in ones settings panel (so members can read new posts in a thread, consider responses, and go back to reply).
I feel that both of these features, if implemented, would make finding material that members appreciate much easier to find, and in turn, contribute to*.
* and please don't use the potential for vendor abuse as a critique. The whole vendor "problem" has been blown way out of proportion IMO... there is still chaff >> wheat.

I have now pulled all the forum ideas from the thread and your two suggestions are a part of them.WTF are you talking about..?? I just wanted to bump the thread to see if I could get a response from Steve
