1. Always wait for the setup. NO SETUP; NO TRADE

2. The trend will END but I don't know WHEN.

I just checked the votes.

It is not because someone cast 8 votes. Rather, one user only voted for one option. :)

And the vote goes to "Greed, Fear and Ignorance".
1. Always wait for the setup. NO SETUP; NO TRADE

2. The trend will END but I don't know WHEN.

tsk tsk tsk..... "shake head".... all kinds of people in the cyberworld...

from this example, we now know that admin is superman...he can see the details of votes casted...

and since we now know that there werre multiple votes by 1 person on "greed, fear, etc"... may i request that it be moderated to show only 1 vote by this person? otherwise, the list will NOT reflect our choice fairly.

Thanks admin....

Ps : cherry, thanks for voting.. received your PMs and I have also replied you... i realized that the PMs are stuck in my "outbox", although the system tells me that the message is sent out...

you need to check if you have stored more than 150 PMs in your inbox...if you max out your inbox, then you wont be able to receive anymore PMs...if your outbox stores 150 PMs, then you cannot send out any more PMs..until you clear them... please check your PM box status...thanks...

Hi Admin

I cast my vote last night. Before doing so, if I am not wrong, I saw:

Total votes : 57

Greed, Fear, Arrogance, Ignorance: 12%

Now, the total vote cast is still 57, and Greed, Fear, Arrogance, Ignorance is still 12%

Could you please check whether my vote was captured, and whether the voting function is working fine.

Thanks.
