Question Please give me your feedback on how to improve pmbug

I welcome any and all comments and suggestions about the site.

Is it working correctly?
Does it look OK (visually)?
Do you have questions about the site that I should explain somewhere?
What features would you like to see?
etc.

What do you (logged in members) think about the charts on the homepage? Is there a different chart that you would like to see there?

Hi PMBug!

The only thing I would like to have you change would be to allow avatar pictures to be larger files, mine is pretty big (it is the same one as my ZH avatar). In fact it was bigger than ZH allowed (at least then), but they took it.

It is about 500 MB (?), which is kind of big for a picture from three or so years ago.

Your image can probably be resized. Send it to me in an email and I'll see if I can help you out.

Will do. Do you like the metals table and gold/silver charts better than the interactive graphs I had up there before?

Actually, I would not change a thing. I like to see the kitco widget showing prices of platinum and palladium, since I have some of each, it is easier for me to do some quickie calculations to see what all my PMs are worth...

Hey, another idea. Maybe you could open a thread so that we users can write about ourselves and our interests. It might help collect more viewers to your site.

For example, in addition to gold I am interested in rolling bearings (duh), Peru (my wife is from Peru and we have a bearing import company there), databases and statistics. Among other things.

I am going to guess that if you get to a critical mass here, then your pmbug.com could start growing nicely. I found that it was really hard at first to get ANYONE interested in my blog, and still have pretty low traffic. One big thing in YOUR favor is that you let your members pontificate... As the community grows, the "Network Effect" might kick in: that people interested in gold, survival and whatever else will feel at home... And your members will bring in others who are their friends...

For now, everyone is welcome to post introductions or expound on "off topic" interests in the STS forum. Just use the "New Thread" button there to start a new thread.

If we get enough members posting introductions or threads on similar interests, I will create dedicated forum rooms to keep things organized and tidy. I didn't want to overwhelm the site with lots of empty forum rooms to start out.

I would recommend an "Introductions" board for new people such as myself to introduce themselves.

I probably found this site too late to see the interactive graphs, but I absolutely love the 24 hour gold, silver and dollar index charts when I click the PM Bug link.

Thanks a lot for these charts.

I will have to look around for a silver nugget, but in the meantime, I just now added a few new smilies (and replaced the code for the gold nugget to show the new gold bars - the nugget has a new code associated with it):
