Having posted here very occasionally I've become somewhat frustrated by elements of the culture. While the 'wild west' attitude can be attractive to some - and it has it's place - I think it would be nice to have a forum where people can engage in adult conversation without continually being interrupted by people shooting their mouth off. Looking at the history of posts on this site, it appears that in the past there was a greater percentage of high quality participants who were engaged in more of a collaborative effort. Whereas currently there are several people who generate a lot of noise - over posting and entering into conversations where they contribute no value. I propose a system to help keep preserve the 'wild west' culture that attracts some people but which also makes it more attractive for people who can add value to contribute here. 1) Rating system: Allow people to be rated based on prior year tax return with cutoffs like: 20K, 50K, 100K, 300K, 500K, 1M of trading profits. And note if they trade their own account or OPM. I suspect that most people here are <20K and many people who are moderately successful would decline to be subject to review so I don't anticipate this would be much of an administrative burden. Cutoff could be verified just by a note from their accountant. Maybe the person's handle could be assigned a different color. 2) Create a forum with just 2 threads. One where only people with 100K annual profits could create a thread. The other where both thread creation AND comments would be limited to the 100K+ crowd. This way the higher quality content could be more easily located and, with less harassment, your high quality participants would be more likely to stick around.
