Start Here (How To Use This Website)

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

Everything you need to know about the new investing community website, how to use the community features, and everything else.

Intro

The website is split into a few different sections:

  • Library – This is where all research, articles, and downloads live. It contains a powerful filter and search function on the sidebar.
  • Community – The community is a private social network that connects everyone that has a “Pro” membership or “Elite” membership. There’s many features that I’ll cover later in this article.
  • Newsletters – Getting the right email at the right time is invaluable, so I made the newsletter page connect with membership and categories. You can sign up to get exactly what you want.

Let’s dive in to each of these, how they work, and how you can get the most value out of them all.

Rather watch than read? I got you:

Library

The heart of the library is the filter function. This function allows you to filter for categories and content:

There are two search bars: the first one searches all text in all posts. The second one searches for categories. The results for the category search display in real-time. It’s really cool! You can also click the “+” icon next to categories to expand them. There are three levels of categories, so feel free to explore each.

Posts also have categories listed underneath the title. These categories are clickable so you can see all posts in that category.

Community

The investing community website feature is new but growing steadily. When you first buy a membership you’ll be prompted to create a username and password.

Your username is public and cannot be changed, so do not put your email as your username.

Community Features

  • Full Site Activity – See all activity public posts on the main timeline. No algorythm, and everything is chronological.
  • View Timeline By Filter – View the timeline by likes, following, groups, mentions, or connections.
  • Member Bio Search – Search member bios to connect with like-minded individuals.
  • Follow or Connect – Following someone means you follow and see their updates. Connect means you can message each other. Useful for separating people into two categories similar to “acquaintance” (follow), and “friend” (connect).
  • No Ads – I don’t sell your data, ads, or anything else.
  • Private DMs – Connect with any other member to send each other DMs. You can also host private group chats! You can even search body of DMs!
  • Groups – Form private, public, or hidden groups on any subject. Host forums, get ideas, and share insight.
  • Privacy – Set your details to private, block anyone on the site, and report any poor behavior easily.
  • Freedom – The platform will never penalize anyone for sharing posts that are perfectly legal. However, hate speech, threatening statements, spam, and harassment will not be tolerated.
  • Clean – No bots.
  • Notifications – Control how you get notifications, whether they’re on web or email.
  • Full Control – Once you sign in, everything is accessible:

Overall, the community has a very clean look. It’s still in the early stages of development, but see below:

Newsletter

The newsletters are a deliberate extension of the website that allows users to get exactly the information they want. Example: if you only want deep dives and essays, select those newsletters and then plug in your membership email and click “subscribe”. It’s that easy:

One thing to note is that you cannot sign up for higher-tiered newsletters when your own membership is below that level.

Example: There are 4 tiers: Free, Basic, Pro, and Elite. Elite level members can access any newsletter. Pro level members can access all newsletters at and below the Pro level.

If a user signs up for a higher-tiered newsletter than their membership, they simply will not receive that newsletter automatically.

Conclusion
