Hi, I am a newbie in this forum but not in other. Just want to know how to post a new topic. Or is it restricted to some group of members?

Suggest the forum administration to restrict the new member joining after a land mark it can be 500 or 600 and anything above this can be after an evaluation criteria by the moderators. If such a control is not in place it is not far this forum too will fall to the current state of SLEF where so many fake IDs being created to manipulate. Two three months ago SLEF had 15,000+ members and now it has 16,000+ members but its hardly few members contributing , max will be 100. I saw the other forum where slstock is active 'The Investor Sentiment forum' have this criteria so it is rather difficult to create fake ID.

Also I saddest that any guest who browse this forum can read the contents in community section as well because we need that the general mass to be aware of what we are discussing. At the end of the day we are doing a community service and my view is that it should not be restricted to the members only.

Thanks

A good suggestion BW
I remember StocksHunter too having the same view related to limiting the new members.

With regard to fake IDs, i am controlling it personally and daily 2-3 fake ID accounts appear and i review and delete them before activation.

if not for this controll TEC would have crossed 1000+ members by now :)

So i can guarantee 99% accounts are real accounts belonging to Srilankans but most seem to browse as guests.

in the past we blocked the view to our community section for non members/guests, later we only restricted the images.

The idea is to serve the online community at large, without restrictions.

our penetration rates are reasonable but active participation has been below par.

this is a common obtacle, but longer run the numbers should improve well.

it could be also due to our mindsets of many individuals just looking for buy sell hold recommendations without going into fine print/small letters.

we can review once we reach 500 members and if most senior members want the activation rule to be changed.

And to deactivate membership based on last activity.

Lets brainstorm on this in 2017

Adding to this what if the Admin can review and cleanse the existing members based on the posts. For example a user ID not used to publish a post for the last 3 months/ 6 months can be identified as dormant and can freeze so that that ID is separated from other IDs. If that ID want to do posting again then he/she will have to reactivate it or create a separate ID. This kind of mechanism is ideal to cleanse the membership database as well as keep manipulators away. This is only my idea.

We had revisited your point in concern.
If the majority of contributors agree we can review on quarterly basis.
But need to check whether its a long lasting solution.

Let me see what we can do. :)

Further going to this idea of deactivating usernames, please see attached facility is available.

Mods - FYI

Members can start the discussion as to how to go about it :ymdaydream:

So many old members in SLEF wants to join with TEC.. for the last four days i received 8 emails.. so i send them the link of TEC.. most of them are genuine members and they like to join with the whats app group.. all of them will join with TEC..

i think 600 enough. Its a good idea to Deactivate accounts based on the last activity.

We all know its not the quantity that matters, but quality and active participation in our forum by all members.
Some members are genuinely absent for long periods due to work and other commitments. But we should not be upset for such inactivity.

Cos they make a point to comment as time permits..... :)

Yep, that's true.. Time is a critical factor. Even, for the same person, that degree of importance of time become change as his/her life changes, time to time due to various factors.. Even they not comment or post at least they could log in here and check what's going on CSE.. :) (telling from my own experince.. :D)

Dear Members

As we see from time to time the topic of limiting the membership comes up to preserve the forum uniqueness.
I fathomed long time ago of this, but ditched the idea so that small investors are able to join in.
after 2 years i think limiting the membership to a number around 450-500 sounds logical.

we may open it up the member-ship say if there is a need after consulting broadly our stake-holders (Team)

Please share your thoughts ......
