As most of you know already, several new forums have been created recently to better organize the discussion and to accomodate the growth of the community. If you are not familiar with the new forums, you can visit the forums front page or check out the descriptions at the bottom of this post. The creation of the new forums combined with the fact that one of our moderators is unable to continue moderating means that there is a real need for some new volunteers to help keep the discussion organized and clean. Being a moderator is not a difficult task. In fact, most of the time you probably won't have to do anything. The most common task is having to delete stupid posts like those from unauthorized advertisers or spammers. Occasionally, you may have to move a thread if it is put into the wrong forum but that's about it. All of the moderation tasks can be done with just a click or two so that the moderation process requires the least amount of time possible on your part. Here are the forums that need a moderator: - Order Execution - Self Employment - Retail Firms - Software - Resources - Chit Chat - Hook Up If you are a senior member or elite member, please consider volunteering to become a moderator. If you can help me out, please let me know which forum you would be most interested in moderating by replying to this thread, or by sending me a PM. Overview of New forums 1. Journals - A place for traders to keep a daily journal of wins, losses, and anything else related to their quest of becoming better traders. 2. Order execution - Focused on topics like order types and routes, dealing with Market Makers and Specialists, and other issues related to executing trades through an exchange or ECN. 3. Resources - A discussion area for resources available to traders such as books, videos, seminars, web sites, chat rooms, advisory services, etc. 4. Hook Up - A forum for allowing traders to find other traders in their area. Traders can also post information on regional events such as club meetings, trade shows, seminars, etc. 5. Chit Chat - Off-topic discussion on subjects like sports, politics, etc. Now you don't ever have a reason to leave the site!
