Thanks for your help! I was playing around with it and got kind of frustrated, so decided to save it for last. I'll let you know if I'm still having any trouble once I'm done with the article. One question though - should I be hitting "save page" as often as I am so that I don't lose my work? Every time I hit the button it says I've made a new edit, though I may have only made a slight change. Also, it leaves a work in progress up on the site.
thx for the input and here comes a question: How brief or how extensive do we wanna be. I personally favor shorter entries as I see that e.g. Wikipedia sort of has it all on a topic, but too much can hide the truly relevant aspects. happy for some input here.
Thanks. The $70 Trillion figure came from a Forbes article. I'll look up the reference and update The Dollar article.
I've been a syndicated newspaper columnist for 16 years. Yeah, I know a little about the industry. Within a few years, they'll not be around. Think Pennsylvania Railroad and the White Star Lines.

Thanks for the feedback. I did add some B/B info today. As I delve deeper into this reports on RATE I will be adding more analyst on the company. I saw a few other tech companies with little or no info that I will start editing as well.
Thanks for your comments on the formatting of Origins ...
That is almost a direct linear presentation form Patman's book -- except I added the numbers to make it easy to reference if people want to discuss a certain point.
I have not read the guide to writing -- I will. I did not know you had a guide until the other day
What specifically did you find troubling about the format?
How will I know that you get this message? Is it better if I use regular email? Does "save page" equal "send"?
I do not know how I got to this page
By the way -- what, in general, is a concept page? Is it a sub-topic on an article page? What other types of pages are there? I don't know the proposed use-of or pupose-for for a concept page as opposed to a discussion page or a "user-talk" page like this one. Help?
A, -- You wrote
Also saw that you created a banking laws page with lots of links off. While interesting the content on the page stemmed from a biased opinion, as such I've deleted the page and moved the content to the discussion page of the Banking industry. Let me know if you have any questions.

I do have questions -- and some biased comments.
What is wrong with bias as long as it obviously bias and not trite, snotty or snide? Whenever a person gives an opinion, I think that is, by definition, "bias".
I do not think opinions, "bias" or more pointedly "controversy" should be relegated to an editorial purgatory.
Do you keep records on the traffic on discussion pages -- as contrasted to the "articles" from which they spring? I bet it is a small percentage. I bet you would increase traffic -- if you labeled the pages "contrary opinion" and pointed to them from the article. Contrary opinions are usually way more interesting to me than a nodding agreement. Both sides of any question should always be shown equally in my opinion -- if you have both sides -- or better yet -- all sides should be shown if you have them.
By putting my opinion on a discussion page -- you are, I think, hiding it -- unless you call attention to it by having a BIG notice on the "article" page -- pointing to a "biased" or "contrary" content.
I herewith suggest that anyone making an edit can title their edit "contrary opinion" or "controversial opinion"-- then that title can be linked to that opinion wherever you put it.
Have all the contributors had an opportunity to weigh in on this subject?
In my not-so-humble opinion, If you avoid controversy and second opinions -- you are headed toward boring and bland and away from lively and spirited.
This is all presented in the hope that it will improve the website by stimulating discussions on controversial subjects.
Thanks for letting me know about that, it was actually me on a computer that I forgot to log in on. I'm planning to update the charts, so that's why I deleted them.
Thank your for your message Charles, good to know someone is looking!
I've been following the U.S. gas prices for a few years now, trying to help my company better understand the market conditions in order to decide the purchase of natural gas futures.
I have found that the best sources of info for natural gas are from the Energy Information Administration (www.eia.doe.gov), ADVFN, various energy news sources and indirectly from the National Hurricane Center (www.nhc.noaa.gov). I try to piece it all together (industrial demand, weather, gas withdrawal period, gas injection season, 5 yr average, etc) and try to estimate the trend for the next 3, 6 or 12 months. Still it has been a crazy market to understand; just look what has happened in the last 12 months!
I have found wikinvest to be a very interesting forum and hope that I can also contribute and get better information from the world economy.

a duplicate line was removed only. SAP is still in the Computer Software industry.
Thanks for creating the pages. I am mostly interested in stocks listed on the Indian stock markets.
I have a couple of questions/clarifications.
Since there are two major exchanges & most of the big companies are listed on both of them, I assume we need to create only 1 page for each company. However, there are two different charts, one for each exchange. So far for the Indian companies listed, I have noticed only 1 chart in each page. Do we have examples of how to have more than a chart in a page.
Thank you for the feedback and cleaning up the pages. I will add some examples to make it clearer.
Thanks for your comment and editing on my article, greatly appreciate it. I got excited about publishing my 1st article and in the process I forgot about the competitors section. Will write it as soon as I have time and info. Let me know if there's anything else I could improve on this article or in the future on other articles since i'm planning on writing a few more
Can you help to locate the market price of Methane ? Is it traded independently ? i.e. away from LNG ?
