As some of you may have noticed there is now a 100 character minimum post length in stock threads. This was introduced to stop the rash of worthless posts such as "Is anybody still following?" or "Go XXX!!!" or "43c now!" that we have been noticing a lot of in recent times. This requirement only exists in the three stock forums. The other forums still have a three character minimum.
The mods and I don't think a post length of one hundred characters, which is about 10-15 words, is asking too much. If you don't have a post of at least that length to add, perhaps you should think about it a little more until you do. Alternatively, if you cannot think up a post of that length, maybe its best not to post in that thread.
Those who pad out their posts with meaningless rubbish including "................................................. ." will have those posts removed.
Through this policy we are trying to encourage people to contribute real content to stock threads and get rid of short posts that add no value. We hope you will respect our intentions and construct your posts accordingly.
I understand that those posting charts may find this a little difficult to get used to, especially those who include commentary on the chart itself. In this case, I would just include some general commentary abut the chart type, time frame or the stock in question.
Thank you for your co-operation.
