    Hi Bianca,

    the new features coming through look great, thanks for the hard work.

    A few ideas I think would be good.

    1) Private messages (This can help users contact one another without having to start a thread)
    2) User signature (This can allow users to add a link, their current stock holdings or a favorite quote in their user profile which other users can see)

    Regards,

    David

    Love those ideas Dave, and it looks like Bianca already implemented them!

    Hi David,

    Thank you very much for your suggestions!

    I’ve already implemented the user signature feature. You can go to your profile page and there will be a text box where you can input your signature. It will be reflected at the end of each of your posts / replies.

    As for the private messaging feature, we’re not going to implement it yet, because it’s an entirely new website feature rather than a forum-specific one. You are now, however, able to set your topics and replies as private. So should you wish to send something to the topic creator or admins in private, you’re now able to do so.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Bianca is still working on more features, and once this round is over, we’ll revisit new features for the forum again after a few other TIP programming tasks are fixed. We don’t knot the timeline yet – as I’m constantly bugging Bianca for programming on other projects too…:)

    One specific item I would like to hear your thoughts on would be how to gives “titles” instead of only counts to the posts. So if you have more than 10 posts you would go from “newbie” to “novice” and after 50 posts “aspiring investor” etc.

    Which titles do you think would work well for this forum? It could be “fun” it could also be “investment-related.”
