Arrow READ: New Site Feature

First of all props to Prentiss and Trants for coming up with this idea and working through the logic with me. I hammered it together pretty quickly and I think it will work nicely.

VIPs: Please start posting stock tips in the VIP forum as much as possible. We need to fill out this forum as well as test the system detailed below. I keep mentioning this so please help me out here...

VIP Traders: From now on please begin choosing whether you want to post your stock picks in the public or private side carefully. Here is why:
  • Stock picks posted in the private VIP Stock Picks forum will automatically be moved to the public Stock Picks forum after 2 days. This occurs at 7:00am EST every day. We can change these numbers but this made sense to me.
  • We can stop posts from being moved by stickying the thread if we choose.
  • Moved threads will be designated a different color or have an icon associated with them (still working on this).
What do you guys think of this? Should give some incentive for new members to post constructive and coherent stock tips I think. Can we try to get some stock picks on the private side so we can test this out please?

Just an FYI, I have not implemented this yet because we do not have enough threads the VIP Stock Picks forum.

good idea!! i mean we'll still be putting out things in other forums such as google and yahoo, so its not a total loss to the general public. i think it would only encourage people to use theyre brains a bit more to get into the "inner circle" so to speak.

Once we get it going, we might do 3 days instead of 5 days. If we do five days plus a weekend it seems as though the pick could be "stale' 3 days should give everyone who wants to buy in plenty of time to do so.

I like the idea

But when do we want to post a VIP tip? literally when we just want our VIP mates to know how juicy it is? ( I guess)

Yep that is the general idea. If VIPs start posting some tips in the VIP Stock Picks forum I can implement the change and we can test it out, as it definitely needs tweaking.

5 days might be a bit too long, but 2-3 days sounds fair. Once again all depends how many members we will end up having here
