I'd like to see my breakeven price as well. I'm pretty good at doing quick calculations in my head but I get exhausted after 15 mins of that.
It would also be really cool if the quotes were listed in real time (instead of refreshing the page constantly). I understand that would be one helluva undertaking, though.
#9 of 17 Transaction List

Showing last 60 days transition is too long that it is taking more time to load my portfolio page as I make trades more and more. Showing only 1 day or 2-3 days of trades would be sufficient for almost all users.

We are considering some pagination solutions too. We want people have to access to all transaction data too. I'll update you on this soon.

I want to thank doctorlove for his insightful and detailed list of suggestions. I agree with everything he wrote.
For myself, I am concerned about the prize strategy of rewarding the biggest gains during the previous month. I am the type who likes to buy for the long term. I feel there should be some sort of reward for people who show a steady gain over time.
Overall I love this new addition to IL! I had been a daily visitor before, but now I'm visiting the site a few times a day - very addicting!

Thanks for your feedback and compliments. We are considering several changes with respect to the 6-month mark (when the initial vehicle stocks we launched with "retire" and unit sales tabulations determine adjustments in stock price). Some players are going long term, so I can sympathize with your thoughts on this subject.
We are considering a larger prize for the 6-month mark, but we will assess a variety of aspects of the game before we announce anything.
Thanks again for your thoughts,

I think CSX should be closed at night. There were some suspicious trades going on around 3AM ~ 3:25AM CST last night. I saw Lexus IS dropping to around $42 and quickly came back up. Similar traction occured on BMW 1 and EVO as well.
YES! I was awake and actually paying attention to the CSX... it is way more addictive than my video games (I want to play my MLS 08!!!!) and I am not going to deny that I profited from what happened.

lol multiple computers late at night? sounds like a conspiracy.
#15 of 17 Useless Stats
Mar 09, 2008 (6:23 pm)
The Top 10 hold 2.5% of all the wealth.
The Top 50 hold 6.1% of all the wealth.
When DrLove had $30M (highest I saw), that accorded to .9% of all the wealth.
Using discrete math formulas, I can estimate 1,900 are below $1M.
Also, it is unlikely anyone has bottomed out.
Figures as of 9 March. Roughly 3,300 members meaning $3.3B in the game.

Interesting... thanks for calculation.. I am wondering how many of those 3300 members are active.. (meaning they are still playing the game & non-duplicates accounts..)
