Default Trading Room Experiences -suggestion-

Hello! I thought of something... Well, under the Clubhouse Forum Section, half of the posts are all about scammers, beggers, etc.

I thought three things...

1. All talk in 1 thread. I am not a fan of my first idea, but hey! What if there was ONE thread where you could post the scams you've encountered. That would be useful because we could be alert of all the new scams out there. This would probably exclude people posting about "Beggers".

2. No "scam" talk. This is the second idea. What if WI made a new rule where you couldn't post anything about beggers or scammers period. Beggers, like... it's the same thing. People make a lot of threads saying how the other said something like...

You are mean *cry *cry*

It's always that. They are always going to do that, and I don't think 1000 threads are necessary for this. The scams, though, could probably be like... PMed to someone in charge of making a list of scams so people don't fall for them (?).

3. No Trading Room Talk. The trading room is always going to be full of scammers and beggers, and we can't really do anything about it... What if trading room talk was just completely eradicated? We aren't allowed to talk about specifics, so how about no trading room talk?


I think everyone agreed that the first idea was best.


Thanks for reading this... I am sorry if you don't agree with me, or anything, I was just thinking....

I really like the first idea. But Idk about the others, I think they help other people to not get scammed. So I think the first one would just clear up all the problems.

Well, they usually want to share their experience so others will post and perhaps give advice. They might cheer up if people post too! It's also a good idea to just get all your feelings out. Your idea might be useful though

These all sound like pretty good ideas. I think they would all help
the trading experience a much more fun thing for all WW members
to participate in rather then some people being afraid to trade because
of scams. If we could be aware of scams that have happened in one specific
trading room, that would be so helpful to others. Like I said, great suggestions.

I think this is your best idea - I see there is one thread stickied in this section already, maybe we need to be creative and think of a way to track current and ongoing scams. A way to enhance this thread so that it tracks (easily) all of the scams.

I agree many of the threads are very repetitive, but so are the questions in Somebody help section and we all love to help out the newbies there. I think that people have had their feelings hurt in the Clubhouse and they want others to commiserate with them. So, I try to help people feel better and educate them on how to protect themselves.

Much as I encourage everyone to join the GT/GE section here in WI to trade safely, I don't think that everyone has the time, or desire to do that. So I think we should continue to have the section so that we can educate and monitor the types of scams going on. I scan the section so I can prepare my nieces for when they go to the clubhouse they are informed/armed.

So I think your idea to have one well managed thread is a great idea!

I agree with the first idea This would definitely help prevent too much talk about scammers, and would be heavily moderated.

Honestly, wonderful idea! But if no scammer posts were allowed, there would be NO posts at all!

--I think that each individual has a different story. To gets theirs heard, they make a thread. This way, specific advice can be given. It's not very fun if your post was skipped. Besides, many people want comforting, if they do get scammed.

--Trading Room Talk is fine the way it is, without the specifics. You could do something about it. Make a thread, and take action, and let others know about recent scams.
