Please Put The Gold Thread Back In The Main Forum?

Recommended Posts

But I really really feel in these times that it is utterly relevant. I am sure others do too. Not to the extent of, say looking through all the posts in GoldIsMoney, but one thread, please!

There was a whole day last week where the original thread didn't get any posts. When did that happen before? We have also lost GoldFinger. HPC needs the gold thread, IMO.

If this thread gets moved or dies, I won't ask again for it to be put back.

I am not holding the site to ransom, just politely asking.

I'd quite like to see the thread back too. I know it irritates some hpc users but gold is a barometer of market sentiment regardless. There are many threads that I chose not to read so I vote yes.

It's more the fact that some much appreciated members have stopped posting that bugs me. The location of the thread is of lesser importance, though still relevant. Can't we leave a saucer of milk out for them?

The thread wasn't the problem the spamming of other threads was.

Agree.

I voted for the return of the Gold thread (again).

How many are aware that Gold took a huge dive over Easter? That Oil has fallen? That many are starting to raise warning voices about other commodities? As the case for deflation grows, I think it is vital that the case for inflation, and it's most shiny proxy, are heard.

However I suspect that some of the posters that kept the thread alive have been lost now.

What you seem to be saying is that because there is no Gold thread in the main forum loads of people will be in the dark about it? Hmmm so you are saying you get all your information from not only one site but one Forum on that site.

I think you need to broaden your horizens a little.

No. But it's nice to have on the main page. If nothing else it attracts more comments that way and makes the thread more interesting.

The gold thread is naff mainly because it has become a meeting ground for serious gold rampers without actual unbiased information.

It was by far and away the most popular thread,

only because a small minority of gold rampers kept it updated.

It should definately be in the main forum. It's one of the most popular threads.

It is as relevants as these topics.

I was really against the gold threads..... way to many of them.

If that one wants to come back, i'll be happy to see it as long as the gold spamming stops, it was ruining the board, IMHO.

So i'll vote yes as long as no spamming and if it happens again I think it needs to go again.

Thats true in the main I think.

Gold has its place, maybe here, in a small dose. If its one thread so be it, but again I dont see why the gold rampers can't keep it updated in the other forum if it is that important to them.

There might have only been a small number keeping it updated. But there were lots of people reading it.

I'm all for the Gold thread being in the main forum
I must admit the main forum does seem to be lacking something since the gold thread dissapeared.

Agreed!

The information and discussion available on general economics is just not as good as it used to be, since some quality posters left :(

Oh well, I know where to find them ;)
