Dear Forum management

There was a time this forum was really valuable 2 to 3 years back when no one was here but someone came out from somewhere and triggered a good value pick, we discussed for days and days plenty of good ideas coming in, great discussions future potentials etc…

Maximum 5 new topics for a day and it was really good I mean really really good to read and was so interesting, that was when the market was really not doing well, but now
All the tom dicks and harries create posts with the shares they are holding saying to buy this and this will be at this price etc…….

In this forum we value discussions, comments findings and reasons, not promotes
Therefore few suggestions

1) Can we limit one tom dick harry to open one post for 3 days,
2) When we read the comments we have to drag the page for about one kilometer to read the next comment therefore suggest this space to be reduced only according to the space utilized during the comment
3) An option on the right hand side to mark as read or unread for the member to identify what he has read before
4) Limit the heading for maximum 5 words
5) Preview pane for the post to identify what kind of an thread before clicking it
6) Once the thread is clicked the page which is opened to be excluded with the front page picture so that we don’t have to pull the page down to read the thread

Please note that this is not finding faults, but this is the only forum in the entire country for us the Sri Lankans to get an idea of what happening pertaining to the stock market of the country, and to the stocks,

Members why don’t you'll suggest few ideas as well so that we could see a good forum with value instead of a forum with promotions and promoters

correct me if i am wrong please

I think Mods & Admins should take the initative...... I will try and keep up with your request for the articles. And surely DB AAA Sstar NZB all can contribute, and why not all members should contribute in little way they can ....

Good luck...
There were few posts regarding the Investing Style whhich i quoted from another source....might have got buried ....

Thanks Siri

My view is that we need to have a section where for every company (at least trading one 240-250) we should have a thread. This way we could review history and views consistently. Ratings on good posts will give us indication. We dont have to search many posts to catch up with.. And promoters can be easily identified and crap discussions can be ignored(if you choose to)....

Good suggestions. I also agree to most of them. I think now we have plenty of new posts everyday, But value of few. SHARK and Sstar doing a great job merge those post together with relevant old ones, Otherwise we may have to spend a whole day to read everything.

As you point out we are working to stop promotions happening in forum and I guess our effort is  working also you can see it has reduced alot than near past. Yeah we need fundamentalist and knowledgeable guys to keep this forum more valuable to all of us. For that, I think as SHARK suggested we should have a way to identify Investment Advisors working at Stockbroker firms and encourage them to make posts and comments.
   

And also I request from all if you see any promotions/abuse things or whatever you feel bad in forum Pls let us know. You can PM us or directly you can report by clicking "Report an abuse" button at the bottom right hand side of the page.
Very Happy

I must complement the very valuable suggestions and request the forum management to give serious consideration in implementing them.
I would also like to suggest that each post should be given a lifespan (a time limit) to be displayed and taken off after that period, say for instance one month. I can see some threads going for over two years and some of those comments are not relevant in today's context.

Agreed. We should have a time limit for posts!!

Finally it is time to study pattern/ charts,/boxes/pivot points of today’s red stocks, pullback stocks/illiquid stocks/stagnated stocks/ stocks which had less appreciation/ neglected counters/ and stocks which are coming out of their bases. Therefore the suggestion to high light top losers by SHAK is a good one. It is a good time to study losers (red stocks) and take positions accordingly.

This is also a good suggestion. Some stocks could break their 52 high sooner than later. Once they break this 52 high,they will go higher and higher with market trend. Actually I am waiting for this. Then we can get more confidence in stocks that we have. We might have 52 high stocks play as well, Good luck
