Like many other users I would really appreciate it if the Metaquotes staff would implement some features that would rise the quality of this forum. Introducing categories would be a first step.
I want to help a little by asking the forum users, which categories you think, would make sense.
This is just my initial draft, which could serve as a basis for this discussion:
> MetaTrader Terminal
This has its own forum already at http://www.metatrader4.com/forum/
You might have a 'sticky' directing people there
This is all academic unless you get the MT management to either:-
1) Commit resources to changing this UI (developed in house by MT)
2) Change to one of the turn-key forum structures
With MT5 the biggest commitment for them, I cant see 1) happening, and 2) seems to be beyond consideration...
I thought so too. But my hope is that someday the mq-staff will understand, that there exists an urgent need of the users (=customers) to discuss and that it is only useful for them, if there is a basis that satisfies the needs of beginners and more experienced ones as well. Because then, their product will be accepted more easily and in consequence by more people (=customers).
Also I don't understand why so many companies constantly reinvent the wheel and create their own forum software. There is great forum software available for free.
So let's all hope this day of illumination will come, leave that discussion aside and get back to the topic, okay?
There are tonnes of other websites and forums offering all the other categories.
This one is a forum for Programming MQL4 (forum.mql4.com) and that is how it should stay.
