Virsus alert: Please be advised that I am getting the following alert from my anti-virus application (AVG)

Sam Sawyer 2 years ago in Website updated by clean-up-1 7 months ago 28

This happens when I click on notifications that inform me of new comments on articles and authors that I am following.  It could be a false alarm but please investigate and advise.  My email address is sam.sawyer@gmail.com.



Answer

Hi,


To provide some more transparency here. Avast & AVG (and possibly others) incorrectly identified a piece of our code as Malware. We have rectified this issue with them and you should no longer see this message. If you still see it, try closing your browser and re-opening Seeking Alpha. 


To be clear, no malware, virus or data breach occurred here.


Please don't hesitate with any follow up questions.


Thanks,

Daniel

No Go with PRO

RetiredinIndy 2 years ago in Website updated by LarryBeagle 2 years ago 11

I started reading SA in 2014 and really enjoy it.  It consumes probably too much of my time each day.  Although I am retired, it's a great resource for both old and new investors.  The new policy regarding paying 900. per year for PRO is absurd.  That will probably prove to be a very bad business decision.  You need to figure out a better way how to shore up revenue or you will undoubtedly loose good authors and followers.

SA Team,

What happened to the Overview section under the Key Data tab for individual companies? Why isn't it there anymore?

News Items Not Expanded anymore?

lemongrass 4 months ago in Website updated by bndsnstks 4 months ago 37

Latest news feed appears to have just switched to showing only headlines, and not the expanded view of each item.

I don't see any option in settings for changing that back?

Create comment order setting preference

Random Logic 1 year ago in Website updated by clean-up-1 7 months ago 18

We can now switch order of reviewing comments.  The default is to see the most recent comments first.  I can see where some readers would like that but after using it this way for a while, I would actually prefer to see oldest comments first.  There may be others like me,  If we could set our preference in settings, everyone could get what they wanted.

Robot verfication

Dhierin Bechai 2 years ago in Website updated by AUXULECERA 7 months ago 16

Seems to becoming an annual thing... Much to my dislike I am once again getting the robot verfication while Javascript and cookies are enabled. I have reported this issue numerous times in the past, but it keeps reoccuring at least once a year. It is extremely inconvenient for readers as wel as coniributors who are losing out on potential readers. I was told you have to strike a balance in the filtering, apparently it is a balance that needs to be refocused each year and each year this is costing contributors.

Limiting mutes to 3

Perkins Cove 2 years ago in Website updated by JohnP 2 years ago 2

You are now limiting the number of mutes to 3, or "start a free trial to Pro". After the free trial is over then what happens? Go Pro @ $75/mo or continue on "Basic" with only 3 mutes available? I am not interested in Pro, so my choices will then be to accept annoying posts ("noise") on StockTalks, or sign off. Of course, if I sign off I will no longer be seeing your ads. Is this really what you want to accomplish?

Brighthouse Financial Annuity ad is DUMB and INTRUSIVE

Tom Armistead 1 month ago in Website updated by 21811041 1 month ago 5

When I open up SA I get this huge pop-up ad that can't be blocked or closed. At an investment site I don't need to be reminded that a Life Insurance agent will be happy to sell me an annuity and pocket 1/8 of my investment. It needs to be removed as it wrecks the SA experience

The cost of you PRO plan is beyond unacceptable

Ted's Cat 2 years ago in Website updated by mfreeman775 2 years ago 4

I am currently spending ~$650/yr on subscriptions on your site, and being able to read articles more than 30 days old is critical to my being able to evaluate either an investment idea or an additional subscription service. 


Now if you had the expertise of a dedicated investment news outlet (WSJ, Barron’s, etc.), I can understand that there would be a return on that investment, but most of the articles are not written by an investment professional, let alone an SA staff writer.


If you need additional revenue to maintain and enhance the web site, I would gladly sign up for say $10/mo.  Asking for an additional $900/yr for nothing more than retrieving information stored on a disk drive far is beyond reasonable.
