I'm pleased to announce that the Stock Market site is now linked into the ToO Chatroom! I'm not sure why I didn't do it this way from the start, I guess I was too interested in the technical project of trying to embed my own chat system to think of using Tim's, but since the original one stopped working I thought it would be a good idea to utilize our official Chat since it's already there waiting to be used.

The Stock Market now has its own official channel in the Chatroom, complete with a resident bot to provide basic information and keep you company. (Thanks to Woody, Whitty, KF, and JCGJ for being my alpha testers.)

You can use this portal to connect directly to the Stock Market channel, or you can connect to the Chatroom in your usual way and then join #StockMarket to enter.



Also, I was finally able to track down and fix the problem with registration so new accounts should be able to be created again. The issue turned out to be the same one that was breaking the profile pages, so fixing it brought those back up also. As far as I know everything is now functional again. Let me know if you have problems with something.

It should be clear from the first post, but to reiterate: The Stock Market site is a replica of the stock system that used to be used here years ago, allowing people who are interested to interact with it and see what it was like since it's no longer compatible with our site here.

Important Announcement: Due to the nature of how the stock prices change (in a random direction each update following no trend, and with no limit on how high or low the value can go) it has become impossible for new members to participate in the market with their starting cash allowance as every stock is currently far too expensive. It's not fair to make them wait for prices to come back down, since there's no guarantee they will, so an adjustment must be made. Rather than attempt to scale the starting cash of new accounts, an approach which would require new calculations each time it is done due to continued fluctuations in value, I have decided that the value of each stock will be reset to their original starting price at least once a year. Individual stocks may have their values reset more often if they get particularly unreasonable. This will not affect the amount of stocks you currently own, you will keep what you have purchased, but it will change their market value.

Question. I keep trying to log in on the stock market with my correct username and password, and it says that it's the wrong password. I try to reset it, and it says my e-mail is the wrong one. Both the email and password are right but it won't let me in! Help?

Got it, nevermind. I didn't realize that you actually have to register again.

Stock prices have been reset so everyone can now buy and sell shares.
