    Hey what about some 'trading games' to help newbies like me?

    :D

    or links etc to feature magazines, courses, etc that might be off interest/use to us.

    What about a stock ticker or a share price look up.

    hi boss
    many other chat forums have posters that enjoy being crude and not constructive in their replies to posts. regardless of whether you agree or disagree with a particular post is not the issue we all have our point of view. it would be greatly appreciated if you can moderate all posts to factual or respectfull and constructive replies rather than gutter talk that we have on many other sites. ban that member if need be. to be quite honest i am really only interested in constuctive posts regardless of whether they are positive or negative in their reply.
    LETS KEEP THIS SITE CLEAN AND MOVE FORWARD TO GOOD TRADING. THIS WAY WE CAN ALL HAVE A GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING.
    regards croc

    Croc,

    Rest assured that I have absolutely zero tolerance for personal attacks or abuse. This is my site and there will be none of that - ever! Repeated personal attacks on other unmoderated sites is one of the main reasons I was driven to start this forum.

    Banning people is a last resort but I will not tolerate unnaceptable behaviour! I want Aussie Stock Forums to be a place people ENJOY coming to!

    Luckily, our members are all polite and friendly! ;) So there has been nothing but peace and tranquility up until now. I hope it continues!

    Cheers mate... and welcome!

    I agree guys, the fact that this is a 'respectable' and comfortable place to chat is what makes it attractive to me. I'm glad to see it take off in the last few weeks- keep up the good work Joe- quality not quantity is what counts.

    If you want to set up some rules with a general blurb on 'etiquette' it may be good for newbies to stockchat like myself.

    Your Stock Picking Comp is a great idea- it keeps people involved. Maybe you'll have more prizes as things grow.

    One thing I'd like to see is a collection of the various sites that people have recommended listed by topic/category (eg TA education, charting tools, fundamentals, stock reviews etc) with a brief description. I notice various 'favourite' sites appear on different threads. Maybe you can pick the best ones or have us vote on them and list the sites in a members only area. Just an idea if you have spare time. It's not essential.

    Thanks,
    RIchKid

    Hi Joe :)

    Top forum. I think it's rapid growth is impressive.

    Can I suggest that there are some more sub-forums added now that the posts are starting to grow.

    Also it will be critical that good moderators are recruited as they make or break a forum.

    Have enjoyed reading the posts so far and hope that more quality traders/investors are drawn to the forum.

    Cheers,
    WaySolid

    I hope you all stick around and we can watch this place grow together!

    Cheers!

    Hi WaySolid!

    This is something that interests me. I'd like to get the forums and sub forums thing sorted out as soon as possible.

    I'm open to suggestions on how to do this so if you, or anyone reading this post would like to give me your opinion, I'd really appreciate it.

    How should the boards on the forum be structured? Is less more or do we need lots of sub boards?

    :eek:

    I don't like the black theme. It may look fancy but the blue one was much more structured IMHO.

    Bring back the blue!!!!! :'(

    Happy trading

    Joe,

    I hate this black theme, the previous blue theme is much better.

    VOTE 1 for no black theme.

    But if majority here like it then I got no choice.

    Remember the KISS principle: Keep It Simple Stupid.

    My other suggestion is regarding Instant Message. A while back when there is a new IM there is an alert to let me know there are 1 or 2 new message. I suggest you bring that back because at the moment. I can't tell in IM whether any new IM and I have to check it all the time.

    AND there more:
    My Suggestions is to add the followings:
    1. Fundamental Analysis
    2. Technical Analysis
    3. Options | Warrants
    4. Futures | Forex

    JOE: I seem to be experiencing repeated problem with functionality of the forums here. Every time I log in all the forums I have attended have that nice NEW icon next to them. Its great feature however it seems to be misbehaving as I am seeing it even beside forums I have already read and no new postings have been made ever since.

    I am not really sure where to reports these bugs so posting it here. If you already know about it then I do apologise.

    In any case it is not a real biggie and I can live with that. I do understand u run these forums from your own resources so if it means to much hassle please dont bother.

    Cheers

    I suggest we get a search button added. It's about time as the forum starts growing with more and more threads.

    Happy trading

    Stefan, There's a Search option in the menu - after Home and Help.

    I know that because I went to make the same suggestion but checked VERY carefully first ;D

    It's a good search too - lots of options. Thanks Boss.

    Ghotib,
    I shall be damned. There is indeed one and it's just perfect. Thanks, mate. Next time I'll check VERY carefully before I ask for something that's already there.

    Happy trading
