One thing I wished for in StocksCafe is the sharing of knowledge and information between users. It was the main motivation of having "Cafe". However, it has not been as lively as I had hoped for.

I have made some changes to it recently, hoping to encourage more sharing between users.

1) Less Clutter - I have removed and rearranged sections in order to create a simpler and cleaner look.

2) Searchable - Now, you are able to search through posts easily with the newly added search bar.

3) Q&A Section - Often, users would message me to ask questions. While some questions can only be answered by me, many could have been easily or even better answered by other users. Hence please do ask questions via the new Q&A section. For the more veteran users, please feel free to answer and share your wisdom with the others there :)

4) FAQs - Going forward, whenever someone privately message me a question, I will post the question and my reply over in the Q&A section. I will also tag it with faq if it is frequently asked. Thus, please check out the FAQs before reaching out to me. Of course, if the question is sensitive, confidential, or not applicable to other users, I would not post it publicly.

If you have any suggestions on how we can make the Cafe better, I am all ears.

Happy investing!

uncletong - Hi Evan,
Thanks for all that you've done. What about putting a live chat room in the café ?

evankoh - @uncletong, live chat room sounds interesting. Maybe even cooler if StocksCafe have a bot to chat with people :)

uncletong - @evankoh, "create a ticket", sorry Evan. I'm not exactly IT trained. Don't even understand what's about.

Quick Features' Update: Who owns what, 52-weeks high-low, disabling cash balance and more
It have been two weeks since the last article, and I thought I should just give a quick update of the improvements made to SGXcafe over the last two weeks in case you think that SGXcafe is becoming inactive :) In fact, on the contrary, I have been actively adding new features! I will just highlight a few features that might be of interest: 1) Who owns this stock? At the point of writing, there are ...

Dividends Projection
A little more than a year ago, I added a feature that projects how much dividends you are likely to receive for the current year in your Portfolio Report. Although it is a simple feature with naive assumptions, it is actually one of the top most-liked features. Hence, upon the request of Friends of StocksCafe, I spent some time over the weekend to include dividend projection in more areas of StocksCafe. ...

Introducing the New Wall
As mentioned in the first article of 2017, one of SGXcafe's focus is to improve mobile engagement. So here we are, with our first baby step. I was never a fan of how SGXcafe's home page was as it did not allow users to easily catch up on the latest happenings since their last visit, and the format was not mobile-friendly. Hence we are introducing a Wall that is inspired by Facebook's feed where all ...
