The challenge has begun
« on: April 17, 2013, 12:09:42 pm »
The time has come to launch the challenge. The first official day is Monday the 22nd April 2013. The site is currently available and ready for testing on www.investorchallenge.co.za.

Feel free to play around with the site and familiarise yourself with it. The database will be wiped clean on Sunday night, and all trades from Monday will be official!

Please share this information with your friends, colleagues, facebook, twitter, or anywhere else you can think of!

As usual, comments and constructive criticism is welcome.

I'll give each user the option, with the default being yes.

Weird, do the other screens work? Else send me the details in a pm and I'll figure out what's up from there.

Oh and well done! For now... :)

Yep, he got me... The last bit of code went live very late last night, so my excuse is a lack of sleep! I don't see your list yet, are you timing your entry?

Where my money? It shows nil.
I started here with nothing and still have most of it left.

At the moment it's only the holdings page that charges up the account the very first time. I'll put a message on the purchase page to tell new users to first click on the my holdings page.

Got it. was in too much of a hurry. Using my tablet without my specs also doesn't help.
