    Just tried it, no difference on my end. Hit default just to see if any were different. Mobile or Ui.x work good for me. You have the best layout of any site I've seen.

    thx for the update fellas i appreciate that! so the only real noticeable difference you guys should be seeing on the mobile style is on the front page ... in particular those page widgets ... are you guys still seeing them when you're on the mobile browsing style set? i removed them from that style ... everything else however should look the same ... i did just check it out from my tablet and i didn't see any of the page widgets on the front page? can someone confirm that they don't see the pages widgets on the front page when on the mobile style? thx in advance!

    awesome @Jrich thx for letting me know that's precisely what i was hoping to hear!

    that mobile style should hopefully make browsing the front page a bit easier for you mobile users ... the UI.X style is really only for desktop users (i'll try and see if i can add some kind of description under that one to warn people not to use it when on mobile :p)

    i just created an official intro video for tsmf on my youtube channel this morning ... i don't know why i hadn't thought of doing this sooner but i have over 700 subscribers on my channel so i figured it wouldn't hurt to publish a video about this site for all of my subs ... who knows maybe we'll see a few of them sign up :p



    let me know what y'alls think :p

    hahaha @Jrich i like that idea! :D

    oh and take a look at this fellas! my youtube vid that i just put out made it to google under the key phrase "stock market forums" (with spaces) on the 1st page! :eek:

    could someone do me this favor and quickly confirm that this is indeed the case for you guys as well? hit up google and type in stock market forums into the search, does that video link really come up at the bottom of that search?

    Looking pretty good so far. It's been easy to get set up and start posting. Which is always a big hurdle for me.

    Now I'll just need to add this site to my phone so I can post from work. Was gone on vacation most of last week. Glad to be back!

    @Baggi it's great to see you back! did you ever get this site to work on your phone? you may need to change the forum style set over to "Mobile Browsing" so that you don't see any of the front page widgets. let me know how that all went. welcome back! :cool:

    yeah i tried to make the whole user sign up process as easy as possible ... no needing to verify accounts via e-mail which i know can be kind of a pain in the rear! i think part of the reason why some people are sort of reluctant to sign up a name here is because of that whole e-mail verification process ... i think once they are made aware that this step is not necessary here they may go ahead and register a name ... we'll see :p

    Looks like I still need to put a picture on my account.

    I'll be here for awhile. Especially if we end up getting a stock market correction at some point. However, if this market just keeps going up for the next two years with less than 1% pullbacks, I'll be broke before too long.

    lol so i see google decided to omit my forum intro video off the search engine entirely ... bastards lol ... gotta love it :rolleyes:

    so much for being listed on a 1st or 2nd page on google under the key phrase "stock market forums" that was short-lived....

    ...or not! :p

    just did a quick google search for "stock market forums" this morning and saw that the video re-appeared on the 1st page results

    but just to make sure i ain't seeing things could someone do me a quick google search for "stock market forums" and see if my video appears on either the first or second page of that key phrase right now?

    nice! now if only we can stay in that 1st or 2nd page of a google search "stock market forums" i think that will really help a lot ... i think people are more likely to click that youtube link since it kind of stands out in the search with the thumbnail image ... that said i haven't seen any new clicks into that video yet but i'll keep monitoring it over the course of the coming days & weeks ahead

    edit: i just noticed this was my 500th post on this site already! yikes! lol :eek:

    so, just to make sure we didn't lose that 1st page position on google, i did a quick check this morning and saw the video was still there :D

    also, the good news is that i'm now starting to see some hits come through to that video from google ... so at least we're getting the eyeballs to this site

    next step? getting those eyeballs to convert to actual members here! :p
