    Hey guys! Just for the fun of it I have decided that I will run another community contest for this month.

    I won't post all of the details in this thread, so if you're interested to get an idea of what exactly this community contest is like, you can simply check out my thread from February 2019.

    Basically, in this monthly contest, you guys are going up against my other 2 stock communities. r/StockMarket and the Discord Live Chat.

    Anyway, without getting into further ado, here I present the community contest spreadsheet and the Google form.

    Please report any issues with either my spreadsheet or the form pronto.

    GLTA and may the best community take it this month! :D

    BTW all, we will need a minimum of at least 7 participants for this monthly community challenge.

    Ideally I would like to get up to 10 participants, but I honestly don't know if we'll get that many from each community by tomorrow's market open.

    We'll see I guess.

    Well, unfortunately we did not make it to the bare minimum 7 participants that were needed from here and from our Discord live chat community for me to be able to run this successfully, thus I am having to cancel this community competition.

    I know this was on a super short notice, as I really only gave everyone about a day to get picks up. Perhaps the next time I decide to run this I will have this thread up days in advance to give everyone plenty time to get their picks in. My bad.

    Thanks though for those of you who did throw in picks in here. I did think it would have been a cool contest idea to see which of the 3 communities would take it this month haha. Maybe next time.

    ^ Scratch all of the above! :p

    Someone from our Discord live chat community gave me a very nice idea, that I just copy over the monthly picks for May from members who submitted from here, as well as the Discord community. So, the 3 members who had submitted picks here over this past weekend will get to keep their picks from this thread, and I've just simply added 5 more users from our May contest thread, so that it bumps us up to the minimum 8 participants needed for me to successfully run this.

    Likewise the case with our Discord community which had a similar shortfall of participants. Did the same exact thing for them as well.

    I think this should work fine. Albeit, it is not perfect as there were 2 duplicate picks (tsla - short) from the r/StockMarket community. I really should be removing those from my spreadsheet. But, I'm afraid that may screw things up with my setup in my spreadsheet. So, I'm just leaving those on for now.

    Thoughts?

    Everyone mostly cool with this, or?

    Let me also know if my spreadsheet is working for you guys and if you all can view each individual community sheet as well. Thanks.
