I enrolled in the contest. Then I received an email telling me to login to another account. I was never able to get that account to authenticate. So, what should I do now?

Backtesting is the key to success in any type of investment. If you can't prove it don't trade it.

I am in the exact same situation. I assume that this is startup quirks and they will get it straightened out by the weekend. They really should restart things to be fair.

I completely agree. There are issues limiting people from placing trades. Keep it fair by fixing the accounts and restarting the contest.

Agree. Nothing but confusion and trouble. Home page showing server overload last 12 hours. My account won't activate. Solve problems then set a new start date. Be clear about the situation and make sure the tech issues are resolved. I LOVE MyFXBook but the contest has been badly managed. Start over!

Yesterday I saw a huge list of competitors. But I can see only a few on the list which doesn't not include myself. Does anyone know what's going on? I was hoping to see I'm somewhere near the top.

We're performing some maintenance work in the background due to the increased load on our servers, so some of the data might come and go - you can keep trading your contest account normally, it will not be affected.

Apologize for any inconvenience.

My FXDD demo for the contest states that I have a $2000 deposit which throws off my percentage gain by 50%.

STAFF- can this be reset, fixed, or modified to show the $1000 balance. Thank you.

I know you guys are scrambling. It's a nice thing (but stressful) to be overwhelmed by success. I know you fellows will do the right thing. Good Luck. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SECOND CONTEST !!!
