I am ceasing the categorization of everyone’s posts and encouraging the use of hashtags. For the last year I have been going into my Admin screen to categorize everyone’s posts by strategy, such as #SPXcampaign or #VXXGame. But that’s simply too exhaustive now that more Contributors are signing up.
So, to help us in our search efforts and help newbies review trades under different categories, please try to use Hashtags in your posts. For Contributors, you will see common examples of hashtags in the window where you write your new post. In the right-hand column of the site, all members can see the “Most Used Hashtags” window for reference as well. Everyone can also use hashtags in the comments underneath posts.
So before posting, #Hashtag-It!
FYI, the number that pops up on the orange tab at bottom represented new posts, but sometimes it will show a large number as “new” when they are not. This occurs when I am categorizing past posts… when I update old posts it sometimes shows them as “new” on the counter.
Just verifying I am able to post.
Author/Contributors can set preferences for Bistro, to receive (or not receive) emails when someone replies to your post, or other actions. To adjust, click your avatar in upper right of screen and select “Account Settings.” Then select “Notifications” and check the boxes you want.

Adding a Picture or Avatar to your Profile.
For Contributor/Authors, to add an avatar or photo by your Posts, click on the profile button in upper right (round button with silhouette). Select “My Profile.” (this is also where you can enter profile info and adjust email notifications). Click on the silhouette. This will take you to a separate site, Gravatar, where you can upload a picture. Once finished there it may take several minutes or hours before your photo will appear in OptionsBistro.
The avatars of all contributors can be found on the right-hand column of this site. —->
By hovering over an avatar, you can see the user’s name and click through to their profile.
If you’d like to become a Contributor, please let me know!
#EDIT Hey, how do we edit a post, AGAIN? ;>)
There are multiple ways to Search for past Posts on Bistro, including stock symbols, hashtags, strategies, by date, by Contributor.
