ET Hall of Fame Threads

Discussion in 'Educational Resources' started by benwm, Aug 9, 2010.

    This thread takes over from the thread, HALL OF FAME of ET Educational Threads,

    What follows is in my opinion is a list of 100 of the better threads that ET has to offer, threads intended to be amongst the top 0.1%, the 'crème de la crème', if you like. For a fuller discussion as to how these threads were arrived at you can click on the above thread for some details, but in a nutshell it includes my own selections (reflecting personal bias), suggestions made by others on the above thread or via PM, threads mentioned in other threads as being especially useful, outside referrals on blogs to specific ET threads and other ad hoc methods. It was not an entirely scientific process but is a best attempt on my behalf to create to useful starting point for discussion. I attempted to exclude threads of a commercial nature (though in some cases this is up for debate), and also excluded threads on the basis of suspected self promotion unless other evidence came to light.

    It is NOT a perfect or all-inclusive list and I apologize in advance for excluding many excellent and thought provoking threads. To be clear, there is no right or wrong, simply opinions, and any award procedure is by definition inherently flawed. However the draft list is made in good faith and will hopefully be useful to others. Rival HALL OF FAME threads are encouraged to compete with this one...

    In addition to concisely listing the initial 100 (draft) HoF suggestions, the purpose of this thread is to evolve into something more useful. For now this list provides reading material during quiet market periods. Discussion and critique of HoF suggestions is encouraged. No doubt the original list can be improved upon, shortened/amended/extended but it should be a home for discussion of the best that ET has to offer. I am open to suggestions here as to how to proceed.

    Anyway, without further ado, and IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER, here are the original 100 suggestions for the ET HALL OF FAME:-

    For now, my work is done. Thank you to everyone who provided assistance in putting together the list either on the original thread or via PM. I encourage others to pick up the baton and develop the thread into a more useful resource.

    I will now take a back seat and watch with curiosity as to whether this thread falls into the black hole of forgotten ET threads, or takes on a new life of its own...


    Edit: I also suggest that where HOF threads have been closed but ETs wish to revisit such discussions you create a new thread with the prefix 'RE HOF' i.e.
    RE HOF 2 True legendary trading stories
    RE HOF 16 Money Management...

    You should contact Baron ( owner to request (beg) him not to delete any of the inactive threads in your list because he deletes the inactive threads that have been inactive for several years (I think the inactivity deletion alert is 5 years).

    Also, when he first started doing that inactivity thread deletion, he said if a thread is of value and has been deleted for inactivity...he'll bring the thread back. In fact, he did such of a few threads that got deleted and members requested he bring them back. That tells me he deletes and then stores the threads on a different server that's not accessible.

    However, recently, he changed his tone and said he will not or could not bring back an inactive thread of several years even if someone request such after a recent request to bring back a particular education thread was denied. :mad:

    Anyways, just heads up because a few of your listed threads are inactive.

    Then maybe we should post to these threads to keep them alive. :)

    Thanks wrbtrader for the heads up. This is a good point. I have emailed Baron and if others do the same it will help too. Perhaps moderators reading this thread could also speak to Baron on our behalf if they feel this thread benefits Elite Trader as a whole.

    BCE - Some threads are closed so we cannot still post to these, though as per my suggestion if we create new threads prefixed by RE HOF we can still continue the debates. No problem provided the original closed threads are not deleted, in which case the new threads would also likely suffer a quick death.

    Edit: Re-reading the earlier posts I think I am confusing inactive threads with closed threads...closed is ok if the author requested this, deleted not so good

    This is the best solution without having to get ET management involved.

    This is a good idea. I'm marking this thread as "Important" so it will automatically stay at the top of the thread list.
