The title says it all - any commercial offers (EA, money management, tutoring, teaching, being a shoulder to cry on, etc etc) should be backed by a VERIFIED account that has REAL money in it.

No ifs, no buts, no excuses.

Surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you and who have no agenda for your reform.

Cheers,

Totally agree with this. Not sure how to enforce it other than splitting out the commercial and the non commercial accounts.
As it stands I believe the vigilant members of the site do their best to point out when one of the various elements are missing from an account but there are still always people ready to take a punt when they see the dollar signs.

Demo and / or unverified equity curves could be watermarked with a big, visible 'DEMO' and / or 'Unverified' text across the graph ... 35 people couldn't count on two hands the amount of times I've seen a demo curve on an EA seller's site ...

Watermarking demo/unverified charts is a great idea. Of course, I could knock up a 'MyFxBook' chart in about 30 minutes in photoshop to show pretty much anything I wanted to.

I basically disregard any MyFxBook details on a commercial website unless they lead directly back to a live account on here, and so should everybody else in my opinion.

Absolutely agree, if you are offering a service to manage my money - show me that you can manage your own first! ;)

Hi
we agree with that, any method should be backed by a VERIFIED account that has REAL money in it.

Just be Transparent with all your trades, positions, Leverage, gains, etc! What's to hide, why the insecurity? There's enough to go around for everybody! Je,je

Like the watermark suggestion - easy to implement and cuts through the nonsense about 'this is real i.e. it's not a backtest'.
