Subscribe to RSS feed Lost Last 3 Days of StocksCafe Forum

I am very sorry but as the title indicates, the last 3 days of data on StocksCafe Forum ( are lost. Please rest assured that this did not affect other StocksCafe systems and/or data at all as they are on independent servers. I am now glad that I spent the extra money to keep them separated.


The main reason is mostly due to my ignorance. I was trying to update the open source forum (i.e. Discourse forum) and somehow failed badly and had to do a roll back and the latest backup I had was 3 days ago.

How to prevent future data lost?

From this mistake, I have learnt and understood the updating processes better and believe this mistake would not happen again. However, there could always be many ways things could go wrong. Hence I have increased the backup frequency to daily so that even in the worst case, we would lose at most 1 day's worth of data.

In case you are interested, other StocksCafe systems are also backed up daily.

What you need to do in this data loss case?

Well, all messages and replies that were sent in the last 3 days are gone. If they are important, please send them again. If you are unsure when they were sent, you can always go to[your_stockscafe_username]/activity and[your_stockscafe_username]/messages/sent to see your latest activity and sent messages (replace your_stockscafe_username with your username accordingly).

Thank you for your understanding. I will continue to work hard to ensure an updated and stable StocksCafe (and Forum).

Happy investing!

Improved Screener and Other Updates
Screener has always been one tool in SGXcafe that I enjoy using. With it, I can easily rank the hundreds of stocks listed in SGX based on whatever metrics I want. Which is also the reason why I decided to spend some time this weekend enhancing it. Firstly, I added a few more metrics to it. Namely: - Dividend Strength - NAV / Price - Cash / Price - Cashflow / Price There have been requests to rank only ...

Quick Announcement: You can now change your portfolio name!
Among the numerous minor improvements in StocksCafe, I think the following will be one of interest to many. Every user using StocksCafe would have a portfolio named "Default". To some, this has been unwanted and they would like to have it renamed or deleted. The main reason why I have not allowed this so far is simply because StocksCafe was built upon the assumption that a user would always have at ...

How My Wife Uses SGXcafe - Dividend Strength
Recently, I finally managed to convince my wife to start investing directly using her own account. That is, she now has to decide for herself what and when to buy/sell. I did this partly so that she can directly feedback to me about what features needs to be improved or added to SGXcafe for users like her. I'll let her tell you about her experience using SGXcafe. --- Unlike Evan, I have no interest ...
