The MetaStock Online Group, hereinafter known as the “forum”, is open to the public, but subject to control of the appointed Administrator(s) and Moderator(s). Posts are not scanned before they are made available for viewing, nor do we later scan every posted message to determine whether it should remain available for viewing. However, the forum reserves the right to allow any Administrator or Moderator to edit, move, or delete any post without warning, at their discretion. These decisions reflect the Administrator’s or Moderator’s view that these posts are inconsistent with the overall goals and purposes of the forum, and is not a determination that such post is obscene, libelous, or is otherwise in violation of law.

Know that a primary purpose of the forum is to promote the free exchange of ideas. It is not meant to be oppressed with censorship. However, while we do not and cannot police every post, we will delete posts coming to our attention that we believe violate our rules.

Occasionally, members and/or guests complain about the content and/or management of a particular post and make various threats because he or she is offended. MetaStock assumes no legal responsibility for the content of any posted message. However, if you violate someone's copyright or trademark, or defame someone, you can be held legally liable. In these cases, MetaStock will cooperate with any valid subpoena or other legal process in order to establish the identity of the offending forum member(s) and the content of their posts. The IP address of all posts is recorded.

Terms of Use

These rules can be changed without notice. The most current version is always available on the forum. Also, please review the Terms of Use Agreement that is required of all registered members. MetaStock does not endorse or guarantee the accuracy of the content available on the forum and therefore assumes no legal responsibility for any errors in content or personal loss suffered as a result of using any content available on the forum. The forum is intended to provide a warm, friendly atmosphere for the MetaStock community. In order to maintain a sense of community, all members should read and follow the conditions of these forum rules. By participating in the forum, members are affirming their willingness to comply with these terms.

General Rules

  • When you create your account, you may call yourself anything you like. Monikers are allowed. You don't have to use your real name. However, multiple names (accounts) are not allowed. You cannot post using another member’s account. People like to know who is giving advice. Using the same name over time builds your credibility and allows other forum members to better evaluate the relative merits of your contributions within the context of the forum.
  • You must have an active forum account to post on our forum. Guests may view selected forum areas, but are prohibited from downloading files and other attachments.
  • Please SEARCH the forum thoroughly before posting a question, because it is possible that the help you are looking for has already provided. In addition to the forum bulletin board, there are FAQ’s and various training materials available for reference.
  • Please stay on topic and respect the headings of each forum and thread topic. Questions outside the scope of the topic may be moved, locked or deleted without notice.
  • Redundant threads will be deleted. Before beginning a new thread, please look to see if an active thread on that topic has already been established. If so, join the existing thread. Multiple threads on the same subject clutter up the forum needlessly and many good ideas may be lost.
  • Please pick the single most appropriate area for your message. If you are unsure, post it in the General Forum. Someone will move it for you. All duplicate posts will be deleted without notice.

  • Select a title for your post that describes the nature of your question. It is inappropriate to use “HELP NEEDED ASAP”. Don’t use all caps or special characters to draw attention.
  • Ask your questions on the forums. Administrators and Moderators get a large number of messages containing questions and do not have time to answer them all. Private messages should only be used for issues that cannot be discussed in the public forum. Failure to comply will result in your message being ignored or deleted.
  • Don’t post just to increase your post count. The number of posts on this forum has no relationship whatsoever to the amount of investing or trading experience that the member may have.
  • Do not ask “What is the best way to…” questions, because they cannot be objectively answered.
  • Please be patient for a response. Nobody works for the forum full time.
  • Do not post personal information. This includes server logins, passwords, CD keys, MetaStock account numbers, etc.
  • Avoid flaming- this is a friendly forum. If you have a problem with someone’s point of view, please ignore it.
  • Use a short signature, if desired. One URL link is permissible; however, graphics are not permitted in the signature line.
  • Don’t send private advertisements or solicit services via email or PM to forum members.
  • Limit the size of uploaded charts and pictures to a width of 800 pixels.

Rules of Conduct

All posts must be relevant to MetaStock except for messages posted in the ‘Advertisements’ forum, posts about other financial services and products that are not related to MetaStock are not permitted. No copyrighted or trademarked material allowed You cannot post copyrighted or registered content without permission from the author or owner. The content of any post is solely the responsibility of the posting member, even if that member is an Administrator or Moderator of the forum. Therefore, MetaStock makes no claim of authorship or copyright ownership with respect to any post. However, by posting content on the forum, and regardless of claims to copyright ownership, the forum member expressly licenses MetaStock and any person visiting the forum to use the posted contents. The forum member agrees to indemnify MetaStock of responsibility for any breach of copyright and accepts sole responsibility for any legal action or claims arising from messages posted on this forum. In other words, if you have written the Holy Grail of technical analysis and decide to post it here, by doing so, you agree to let MetaStock maintain the post on the forum and allow forum visitors to reference or copy it within their posts on this forum.

No spamming or trolling allowed

Spam is broadly considered to be repetitive posting of the same text again and again or nonsensical posts that have no substance. Trolling is the act of trying to start arguments and upset people. Trolls feel no sorrow whatsoever for the pain they inflict and are utterly impervious to criticism (constructive or otherwise). You cannot negotiate with them; you cannot cause them to feel shame or compassion; you cannot reason with them. They cannot be made to feel remorse. Posts of this nature are not conducive to community spirit and are unwelcome.

"Newbie" bashing will not be tolerated

New forum members are encouraged to use, but not restricted to, the ‘Newcomer's’ forum. The ‘Newcomer's’ forum is specifically designed to provide a platform for those who are new to the MetaStock community to ask questions and learn more about the forum community. Regular forum users are encouraged to be helpful and courteous in their responses. All flames will be deleted and the poster may be warned or permanently banned from future forum use. Newbie’s should attempt to seek answers in the MetaStock Forum FAQ and other available resources prior to posting.

No defamatory statements allowed

Avoid repeating vague and unsubstantiated rumors about any person, company or product. Stick to your own experiences and your own opinions, based on what you know to be true.

No flaming or contentious off-topic comments allowed

The idea is to make this a pleasant environment in which to discuss MetaStock products and services; the forum is not a place for egocentric personalities to spew out their scathing witticisms while hiding behind their perceived online anonymity. Just get along!

Watch your language

The forum is not a home for potty-mouths. Foul, offensive and/or crude language is not welcome here. Be patient with others Remember that the forum is operated by MetaStock. Although it is not required, most members submit their posts in English. Therefore, members who are native English speakers should remember that many other members speak English as a second language. Please allow for the possibility of misunderstandings, and be patient if someone asks for an explanation of what seems to be obvious.

Forum discipline

Private communication between forum Administrators and Moderators and forum members is not to be made public on these forums or by any other venue You are not permitted to publicize any private correspondence received. Such matters shall remain private between the parties involved. Questions or comments concerning warnings and bans will be conveyed through e-mail or private messaging. Disputes which cannot be resolved between forum members by the forum Moderator(s) may be arbitrated by the forum Administrator(s) To discuss problems or concerns, please send an e-mail to the Forum Administration.

Official warnings

Members choosing to violate forum rules will be issued an official public and/or private warning by a forum Administrator or Moderator. This means that all comments on the thread are to stop. The member(s) that ignore this warning will be subject to being permanently banned from the forum.

Permanent banning
  • Posting, emailing or using PM to send the following content (or links to the following content) to the forum or forum members will result in you being permanently banned from the forum: sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, discriminatory, or racially or ethnically offensive remarks; warez, cracks or serials; [censored]ography; excessive obscene or vulgar language; and, posts which discuss or illustrate illegal activities.
  • Impersonating another forum member, administrator, moderator, or any MetaStock employee is strictly prohibited.
  • Creating multiple user accounts will be considered a denial-of-service attack on the forum and will result in your being banned from the forum and reported to your ISP. Note: the decision of the Administrator to ban a forum member reflects only the Administrator's conclusion that the member has demonstrated an inability to conduct him- or herself in an overall manner consistent with the goals and purposes of the forum and is not a determination that such member has violated any law.
