Create comment order setting preference

Random Logic 3 years ago in Website updated by clean-up-1 2 years 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 3 years ago in Website updated by AUXULECERA 2 years 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.

dark mode

LittleMilk 11 months ago in Website updated by Gimme 5 months ago 8

Can you invent a dark mode for seeking alpha? The white background kills my eyes... and most users prefer a dark mode across many platforms.

Brighthouse Financial Annuity ad is DUMB and INTRUSIVE

Tom Armistead 1 year ago in Website updated by 21811041 1 year 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

Limiting mutes to 3

Perkins Cove 4 years ago in Website updated by JohnP 3 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?

I can't sign in as a user. Have to use Google or Apple. Thoughts?

There is a FB default error message when I click sign in. It won't let me log in. Only reset PW.

dark mode for website

junkit 3 years ago in Website 0

It would be nice to have a dark mode for reading your site at night on my laptop.  I see the request already for your mobile apps, which I also like the idea of.  Just want to add browsers to the mix as well.  I already run a dark theme in Firefox and my two search engines (not google) also have dark modes.  Thanks!

The cost of you PRO plan is beyond unacceptable

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

Need a way to block the commentary from certain annoying (and prolific) readers.

David Fields 4 years ago in Website updated by rjm22 2 years ago 14

Certain commenters are very prolific and repetitive; responses to any counter argument is either ignored by said commenter or given an almost word-for-word repetition of a previous comment, including unsupported links to charts and other irrelevant data. This particular commenter is so prolific and so annoying that I simply no longer want to see anything from this individual, no matter what they say.

As of today, muting of users is virtually unlimited (you will be able to mute up to 300 people)
