HERE IS THE CODE FOR THE DISCORD GROUP:
I WAS MAKING PEOPLE SIGN UP VIA THE FORM BELOW, BUT DUE TO HOW SMALL MY BLOG IS I AM OPENING IT UP A BIT AND JUST LETTING PEOPLE IN FOR A WHILE. AS THE GROUP GROWS, IF IT DOES GROW, I WILL EVENTUALLY GO BACK TO FORCING PEOPLE TO SIGN UP AGAIN. EVENTUALLY, I MAY EVEN SELECTIVELY CHOOSE PEOPLE BASED ON ANSWERS IN THE FORM. FOR NOW I AM HAVING A COMPLETELY OPEN GROUP.
I didn’t get a tremendous response from this post, but I am going to start the sign-ups for the trading discussion group anyways. If I get a decent number of people signed up by January 12th, I will send out the invites on January 13th. Here is the google form that you will need to fill out. Note there are only a few mandatory fields. The rest are optional.
After considering multiple options, I settled on Discord as the platform. It has more of the features I am wanting. I am going to have two groups, newer traders who can view every channel and post in quite a few. There will be a few channels new traders cannot post in, this is to keep the beginner type questions to a minimum in areas where high level discussion is occurring. Then there will be a group called experienced traders that can post anywhere. I am not going to strictly vet whether you are an experienced trader or not. This is done on the honor system. I can always move you up to the experienced trader group whenever you feel you are ready.
A major driver of me wanting to do this group, is to have an area where people can have long form discussions without the noise and post length limitations found in social media. I am partially doing it for a selfish reason, to make myself a better trader. Feedback from other traders and new perspectives, if properly processed, should be a benefit to me. The same reasons should also apply to help others in their trading, which is also a primary motivation for me.
Discord also has voice channels available. I will have a few of those channels available as well, but the majority of channels will be text only. I do plan to post some “exclusive” blog posts within the Discord chat channels. Maybe this will give some extra incentive to sign up. It is 100% free and always will be.
Here is the form again:
