I'm glad you've found us. Once again, if you haven't yet watched the introductory video, I encourage you to take the time to do it now:

New Site For TF Metals Report

We've gone to great lengths to get things perfect but, if you notice some typos or if you have suggestions to make the site even better, please contact us through the link in the navigation bar.

Hopefully, the site will run smoothly and the transition from blogspot will be seamless. However, spam and DOS attacks are rather commonplace these days so please try to remain patient if the site encounters any technical difficulties. For example, we've already had someone run an automated program that generated over 250,000 attempts to log/hack into the site while it was under construction. Thankfully, this person wasn't successful but who knows what we'll encounter now that it's live.

Once again, thank you for making this all possible. Let's continue to make this "community" someplace special and unique. Help each other. Treat others the way you wish to be treated. Learn and share.

Now, go explore and have some fun! TF

How about a beginner’s page where "complicated" stuff is explained in a simple way?

Like: I'm buying the $45 calls on the May future contract, hedge funds, hedges, shorts cover …

New website, silver and gold up, miners up... a good day.

Hi Turd and fellow followers of failed economic polices final fantasy's. I am seriously tired of mainstream economics musings in math and myth. Economics is the studies of real human cultural interaction and policy design. Culture is imagination made real. So to imagine a sound system you need to review your assumptions behind your world view. As for economics here is a good way to start.

Another long time reader and first time poster!

Congrats Turd!

Viva la revolucion!

I love you man . . .

Corsair · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:04pm

lurker since January and told myself to register when new site came up.

awesome work Turd!

Eric Original · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:04pm

So glad to see you again!!

Had to ditch the Eric#1, since #'s are not allowed. :(

Other old timers here have insisted upon Original Eric all along so I acquiesced, though I turned it around because I still wanted Eric to start it off.

How are you? It's been a while. I was worried about you.

ampmfix · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:04pm

Nice site, like the charts and the forums, only problem is that now I won't be able to read all the comments, but maybe it's better that way. It took me only 5 tries.

queencatbird · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:05pm

Congrats to TF and all interested parties, on the new venture. As I say, cyber champagne on way - although there's not much taste to it, guaranteed no hangovers. As I am on dial-up, (a no-video zone by the way) it may take a few quarters to arrive. Speaking of dial-up, the new site isn't real dinosaur friendly - took over 5 minutes for the screen to enable me to comment - so I may not be commenting much, if that condition continues. Oh well, just an amateur here anyway.

Thanks Turd for the new site.

Took me about 10 times to get registered. Bound to be a few bugs on getting going.

Fat Willie · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:07pm

Well done. As a long time lurker I can say I really appreciate the new format, especially the forums. I look forward to humbly contributing to the impressive body of knowledge that will undoubtedly develop on this site.

Nice job!

Savoy · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:07pm

I've been lurking for months on the old site and have been waiting to register on the new site. Well here I am. Good luck Turd nice site, well done. Let's get this thing going. :)

CarlC · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:09pm

Had Netdania chart up, on one minute intervals and zoomed in. I flipped back and looked like a giant mountain rising until I realized it was just a jump from 35.37 to 35.50

Eric Original · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:09pm

I get a variety of error messages whenever I try to add a picture to my account. whatever...

letey petey · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:10pm

Christmas in June: look at our great new toy!

Attention site admin: I think I have a helicopter just your size laying about the basement somewhere.......

Lonerangersilver · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:11pm

Good job. I am looking forward to this.

Helix · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:11pm

Thanks for everything you do. Nice new home.

silverbonz · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:12pm

diggin the new site!

JP · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:12pm

Congratulations on getting the new site up & running! Can't wait to participate in moving it forward!

Josephj36 · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:13pm

Congratulations Turd, at least we have some good news for the week!

Eman Laer · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:13pm

Thanks Turd!

Josephj36 · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:13pm

Congratulations Turd, at least we have some good news for the week!

silvernomics · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:13pm

Great site

Fortinbras · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:14pm

... the mass of content is practically overwhelming! Will take some getting used to, but how great is this place?!?!?!

As silly as it sounds, I do think sites like this are the seeds of a new future/beginning... the internet is an AMAZING thing communications wise to be able to bring together individuals, from around the globe, with a myriad of trading, economic, survival, prepping... knowledge and experience and be able to share it all in one place.

I think people will be absolutely stunned by the crowd this site draws.

Igiveup2 · Jun 14, 2011 - 6:14pm

Glad to be part of the group. I truly hope the purpose of this site doesn't get lost in the mix here. We are all going to experience something unlike any of us could imagine. The last six months on this site has truly demonstrated the vast majority of our friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and most everyone else is either uninformed or chooses to remain ignorant. I followed Turd here from Zerohedge. I try and try and try to get people to read and understand the real news that is affecting their lives. Problem is, the truth is way too uncomfortable. Deceiving oneself is the easy way out. Here's hoping. Good luck to all of us.
