  1. I am thinking of changing the video section from a forum based topic style as is currently, to a system which which be a dedicated page, accessed via a tab on the forum menu. This would be set to allow members to add videos to the database, and probably just premium members which should stop any potential junk/spam from being posted. I was thinking 3 categories, Gold, Silver, and a General Precious Metals category, with ultimately maybe a Trading the markets section. A tag system could also be implemented so videos could be tagged as "full stack video" "unboxing" etc, so it could be easier to browse specific themes of video. I personally think it would make videos easier and nicer to browse, as at a glance could see multiple videos and their thumbnails, which out having to first click a topic title and then see. Please let me know your thoughts on this below and if you would like me to introduce this to replace the current in topic forums type of video section we have now. Please vote on the poll, yes, if you would like this change. An example:

  6. Today I received.....

    I thought this would be an interesting follow up to the "today I bought...." thread. When you receive your order you can post a pic in this thread a kind of photo unboxing. Unfortunately I am out of the UK at the moment, but I will be back in a month so then I have a whole year of small silver purchases that I can take a few snaps of and upload here. In the meantime hopefully some other members will be able to upload some pics here soon......

  25. How to trade

    If you want to buy the actual shares and own the underlying asset (the shares) you will need to buy through a broker, most charge about £12.50 per trade (although some cheaper) so don't make much sense to do unless each trade is sizeable so that the cost of that fee is negligible. Note that trading and investing in shares are different, trading tends to be shorter time scales and in and out in a relatively short time frame. Buying shares in the UK is relatively expensive and traders may instead use CFD's (Contracts for differences) or other derivatives to trade the market, rather than buying the actual underlying asset they are trading on a derivative that follows the price of the underlying asset. http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/savings/cheap-online-sharedealing MSE website here should be a very helpful read, it is about buying shares. I am not sure what platform @RichRock uses when trading.
