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

Quick Updates: Dividend Withholding Tax and More
Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying yourself this holiday season. Just wanted to quickly share some changes I have made over this weekend: Dividend Withholding Tax As StocksCafe recently started supporting US stocks, some users have requested for StocksCafe to automatically adjust for dividends based on individuals' tax status. For example, most Singapore residents would incur a 30% tax on all ...

After many hours of coding, I am happy to share that Phase 1 (of 3) of the expansion to Hong Kong is now complete! Information about Hong Kong stocks is now available in SGXcafe (e.g. CK Hutchison).

In Phase 2, I will focus on features revolving around adding ...
