SeekingAlpha ad becomes a real problems now

Lejun James Shao 3 years ago in Website updated by SA Admin Jonathan Liss 3 years ago 1

Now when I read some articles, my computer CPU runs 100% and the page becomes frozen and becomes extreme slow.

Please allow comment navigation

KIA Investment Research 3 years ago in Website 0

Please allow comment navigation

Back before the SA website was redesigned, I could go to my comments and select the ticker which would filter comments for that ticker, say NOK. I could then use the goto-page N system to quickly jump to my early posts on NOK or anywhere else.

The current system is impossible to navigate. I have roughly 15K comments and multiple tickers and it is nearly impossible to navigate to say my first NOK post.

Currently you must page down to force the browser to load the next page. It's a linear process. If I want a comment I posted a few months ago, I need to go through page-down hundreds of times, and there is no way to sort by ticker. (browser search doesn't work until you have paged down several hundred times since the comments are not yet loaded.)

The current system makes posting history virtually unusable for folks that have many thousands of comments. (my argument here is that post history - especially for an author- is very valuable.)

For instance, when Apple was in the $700s, I was telling people to take some money off the table .. however that little gem is lost to me now.

please add the following:
1. Add filtering comment history by ticker
2. Add jump to page functionality
3. Add comment search (bonus functionality)

Turning off ad blocker makes your site unusable on Chrome browser

anonymous 3 years ago in Website updated by Kyle+Gay 3 years ago 5

Please scale back the ads on your site. You request that I turn off the ad blocker but your advertisements make your site function very poorly on a Chrome browser. My CPU usage goes up over 10% and scrolling becomes painfully jumpy. My CPU fan has to kick into high speed just to use your web site. I'm a fan so please improve this situaion.

Why have both my portfolios just disappeared?

jimdice 15 hours ago in Website updated by St.Mary 15 hours ago 2

I'm getting an error message on my portfolios and portfolio news.  The system shows things are working fine - this status appears wrong.

I am not a robot

Global18Trade 12 months ago in Website updated by Vitaly Kravchenko 6 months ago 7

No, I am not a robot. I am logged in. Do robots log in?

I also don't have anything to click on.

Only started recently.

I think the ad blocker causes the verify icons not to show up.  Try pausing ad blocker and refreshing the page.   When you open tabs in quick succession, eg x amount in y seconds,  the robot checker thinks you are a robot pounding the site and asks you to verify yourself before continuing.  Interesting that chrome should cause it to happen more, maybe it is a more efficient browser so it sends more requests to our servers faster.

I am NOT a robot

WillPowers 2 years ago in Website updated by omghcarman 2 years ago 2

I've been using SA for years without any problems. Now the bot blocking system is repeatedly issuing the critically annoying "I am not a robot" step. I'm using the latest version of Chrome with Java script and cookies fully enabled. Why is this happening?

Already pay for Marketplace now I have to pay for SA Pro too??

khart100 2 years ago in Website updated by investrealsc 2 years ago 1

I already pay $1,000 a year for a Marketplace service that provides high level analysis of virtually every stock worldwide. This is a great service that I use to find stock ideas that first meet their criteria.

What I have been doing is then going to SA and searching the stock and reading a bunch of past analysis performed by a wide variety of writers. Many of these ideas are not covered by many people. Many of them don't have articles written in the last 10 days. For many of them it has been several months (TREX for example).

I'm now expected to pay $900 a year more to read months old and outdated analysis? This is absurd. If SA stays this way I doubt I will renew my subscription service that I'm currently paying for. While they provide great high level statistical based analysis, they don't really go in depth on any one stock in particular. So instead of a $1,000 a year subscription, I now basically need to have a $1,900 a year subscription to get what I need.

I'm also annoyed that some people are apparently offered the Pro service at $300 a year as I've seen numerous complaint comments referencing this amount. To go from $0 to $900 is insane. I'd consider paying maybe $10-20 a month but $75...???

I'm even more annoyed that this change was done with absolutely no communication from SA. I spent a lot of time yesterday trying to figure out what was going on. I created a new account to see if something was wrong with my current account. That's just terrible customer service.

live feed

Philip Marlowe 1 month ago in Website updated 1 month ago 11

Today my live feed switched to titles only. I really do not like this, I want to read the live feed as a stream instead of having to click on each individual title to read the news item. The whole point of the "feed" concept is that the text of all news items comes as a stream and you can read it all without clicking around. There used to be an option to change it but I do not see the option anymore.
