Should reviews be anonymous?

Most of the time reviews on platforms have the username of the reviewer. Think of yelp, google, most Amazon reviews. On most of those sites I don’t find much use to seeing people’s usernames. However, on C2 reviews have just two categories: subscriber and AutoTrader. I think it would be nice to be able to see usernames then see what other reviews the person has left. I think it would help show whether the reviews had a good pattern of finding bad systems or just got angry because they joined at good or bad times. Not a big deal but it would be nice to have imho.

Should username of reviewers be shown?

Voted No, but because of “doesn’t matter” vote was skipped. Reviews in most of the cases highly correlated to equity curve directions :slight_smile: and therefore useless. IMHO.

You are probably right. There are of course outliers, but the review do seem to be highly correlated with the equity curves of strategies.

A couple perfect examples of how beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Twice this strategy had a 1 and 5 star review on the same day.

It all depends on when you subscribed. There’s so many subs that pick strategies like they pick stocks, buy high and sell low.

I can’t agree more. This is why 95% or so of traders lose money. I made that stat up but I know plenty of studies say similar.

Yeah, it sort of isn’t getting the results of the strategies anymore. Instead, by moving in / out of strategies as if they are trading ETFs, the strategy picker’s are adding their own trading/timing to the strategy’s timing/methods. (well, not exactly of course, but one thing I noticed, people tend to jump into a strategy at peaks, and get out at bottoms, only to miss the runup after the bottom).

I don’t think it’s a good idea, because if C2 Trade Leaders could see the reviewers’s username they would be tempted to put them on a “black list” and reject their future subscription, to prevent them from leaving a negative feedback on their own C2 systems, if these reviewers have already left two or more negative reviews on other strategies.
