How to Start with MT5, a summary !

MQL5.COMMUNITY PAYMENT SYSTEM
Internal payment system was initially created in MQL5.community for payment of fees to authors of Articles. But the community's life does not stay still, and plenty of services, useful for traders and implying commodity-money relations between two parties, has emerged on the web-site since the launch of the payment system:
The most popular payment systems WebMoney and PayPal are integrated for deposit and withdrawal. U.S. dollars are used as the currency unit. Eventually we implemented other ways of depositing to MQL5.community account: these are common plastic cards (CommerceGate), handy and rapid system not requiring additional confirmation (Neteller), and a solution oriented towards users from China (Netbanx).
Traders can also use MQL5 coupons to pay for products and services as well as to deposit funds to their accounts on the website. The coupons are distributed by some brokers among their clients for free.

What interesting is that i just started researching how to use MT5 again about a week ago. I seems like I try this at the beginning of every year. The platform seems so much better and I want to cross over, but the challenges for me are always the same it seems.
But I like the approach you at taking which is to get new comers to use it, because for existing MT4 users, its almost a lost cause. For us MT4 NON Programming types (because there are plenty of programming article for Mt4 to Mt5) we really need dumbed down transition videos. Anything else is WAAAYY too much effort.
Akamai Technologies provides MetaTrader 5 brokers with extra protection against DDoS attacks
MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2018.02.01 15:00
We have added the functionality of using third-party Anti-DDoS services. The new Anti DDoS Proxy Server component, allows brokers to shift the burden of blocking unwanted connections, to a third-party 4vendor's server network.
When using an Anti DDoS Proxy Server, all clients are connected to the provider's public access points, instead of being connected directly to the access servers. Unwanted connections are sorted out in the provider's own network of servers, while legitimate connections from real clients, are forwarded to the access servers. The broker's infrastructure is practically not affected.
Josh Shaul, Vice President of Web Security, Akamai Technologies
Our partner, Akamai Technologies, is one of the world's largest infrastructure companies, offering a portfolio of cloud security solutions. The provider's massively distributed platform, is unparalleled in scale, with over 200,000 servers across 130 countries, thus providing customers with a superior performance and with a superior threat protection.
“By leveraging Akamai’s massive global network as a defensive shield, MetaTrader 5 will now be able to immediately bolster the protection of its clients from DDoS attacks", says Mr Josh Shaul, Vice President of Web Security, Akamai Technologies. "Our tools allow stopping attackers long before they are able to reach the MetaTrader 5 systems or clients”.

Requests & Ideas (MQL5 only!)
Vladimir Karputov, 2017.07.28 18:10
In the service "Freelance" a new section appeared: " Consultation "
Where can I see my purchases?
The "Purchased" tab displays all the products downloaded and purchased using the current MQL5.community account. If MQL5.community account data are not specified in the platform settings, the tab name changes to "Downloads". It displays all downloads and purchases made in the current trading platform regardless of the account.
Some of my MT4 products are not available on MT4 Platform [SOLVED]
As the people (the customers) are continuing to upload decompiled codes asking the developers/coders to fix something so I want to remind about the following thread:

New MetaTrader 5 Platform Build 1755

We recommend anyone who has long been using 32-bit Wine for MetaTrader 5 due to the past incompatibility with the 64-bit terminal to upgrade Wine to the latest 64-bit version and re-install MetaTrader 5 in 64 bits.
Besides, make sure to set the Wine compatibility mode to at least Windows 7 instead of the default Windows XP. No more updates for Windows XP/2003/Vista will be released.
