Please add a quick review at T2W

Postby Stan Bokov » 10 Aug 2011

Trade2Win for some reason didn't have a review of MultiCharts, even though we won multiple awards from them. They were very helpful and prompt in putting one up though, so big thanks to them. If you could, please drop by and just add a line about what you think about our product.

Only takes a minute and no reg required (from what I can tell). Thanks!

I scanned the software reviews. it seems that there needs to be at least 3 reviews before the ratings have any impact (or at least any significant impact). I say this because I gave a rating of 9 but some of the software with more than 3 reviews has an average rating much lower yet they are a lot farther up the list. So it seems they are weighting popularity a fair bit and deciding this based upon the number of reviews. It could also be that they want more reviews knowing that most users will not use all the features. I am a good example. I don't use the scanner, back-tester or auto execution.

Why did I review? Because it may mean more MC sales and that means more money for more features and bug fixes meaning more sales and again more features and bug fixes.

There are two reviews now. Okay, lets take fun bets on this (no real money obviously). If you read my post above, I am calculating that one more review should cause MC to jump way up from rank #32 (even if the review is not that great). Maybe someone can add a 3rd and see if I am correct. It may be that the Trade2Win forum needs to run some sort of batch process if the change in rank does not occur immediately. Maybe someone will have a reason to think more are needed to get MC to move up. Maybe there is an explanation on the site.

I've just added my review, but the rank is still 32. What were we betting for? ;) Just kidding, I agree that they probably run a batch or empty their cache before we see the new ranking.

There still more reviews that could be added by MultiCharts users, and I can't think of any better reasons than these John to add a review. I also written a review because I thought that, if I got time to post here on the forum about new features I'd liked to see implemented, I definitely had time to write a quick and honest review. :)

Best regards,
Josh

What were we betting for?

If we all lived together we could bet that the rank does or does not jump by tomorrow morning and the losers buy the winners a beer each :-)

I agree with your reasoning. MC is a great product that deserves attention and the small amount of time spent is not a big price to pay.

Well with 4 reviews it jumped to #6 so my guess may have been close if not accurate. I guess the bet now is the final rank!

Done, did wrote my review.

A key point for me is the support the we have from MC team and the forum.

Thanks for your effort guys. This is just one of many places that we need to be more visible on, and we can't do it without your help. Advertising is one thing, Opinions of real users is a completely different argument altogether. With 8 reviews, we are now in 4th position. Once again, thanks for taking the time. We really appreciate it.

Yes 2nd place with 11 reviews too. I was looking at the number of reviews rating. MC is 5th against the highest at 18 reviews. Maybe MC can give that a run for the money too (hopefully at first place). No doubt with project management in place now that if it does not happen this year it is just a matter of time.
