There is no reason the next feature market should wait until the resolution of https://manifold.markets/Austin/what-new-manifold-features-would-be . I plan to resolve PROB so as to create good incentives. For example, if someone finds a loophole and stakes M$ 10000 one second before closing time, expecting to siphon this pool into their account for no meaningful contribution, and this is plain as day to all involved, I expect to try to make sure they don't profit. If someone gives an answer you expect deserves payment, and so you immediately double their stake, allowing them to immediately cash out at a profit, that is a reasonable way to gain the payout they would have. I too may do so, if I make sure to not unduly profit from insider knowledge. I plan to pay out 3% of profits on this market, that is, 75% of the creator's commission, to the ANTE answer, allowing others to subsidize this market. The remaining percentage point seems a fair commission for my administration. The rules may change in the face of good arguments, especially when that doesn't discourage early contribution. I won't ignore the incentives of people that have already acted. In fact, good arguments in the form of answers will be rewarded! For this "smart contract" with a human in place of a blockchain also could use feature suggestions. But do mark such answers "Meta: ". I don't plan to reward previously suggested features unless you weren't paid enough for them. I think you should be paid for your feature requests that have already been implemented before this market's creation, but I will take the opinions of ANTE stakes into account here. I consent to this market being transferred to another user by Manifold staff if future me behaves in ways that apparent present me grossly disapproves of. If I get tired of this, I may say so and close this after 24 hours. If Manifold doesn't implement partial payouts and history archival in time we may have to close and reopen this.

Ability to optionally privately enter your expectation of outcome when making a purchase, for the purpose of having a personal calibration curve. Justification: I find that making calibration curves for myself is fun and helps improve my forecasting, and that my calibration curve gets less accurate after a few months if I stop practicing. But the practice takes effort, which could be piggy-backed on the forecasting activity of participating in prediction markets for less effort than doing it seperately.

I would like there to be a feature that integrates something like an RSS feed. If key words or phrases about specific event occurs, trading is suspended until the market is either resolved or the RSS notification is tagged as a false positive. As what often happens, the gains of many bettors are wiped out by slow resolutions of markets.

Oh, actually your borrowing after me would mean profit for you. Then I suppose the loan can last another up to 8:30 minutes while apparently people are still hoping for their feature to win the lottery.

Every gambling site should have a Kelly. It would ask you your opinion on the market prob and suggest a suitable bet size based on the current market prob, share cost, existing bets, liquidity and the Kelly Criterion.

To clarify this, I mean something like the ability to "Buy NO" on a specific answer to a free response question. (Just realized this might be ambiguous, since "short" is an adjective as well as a verb.)

This is something browser extensions thats already exist can provide btw. I think it is an orthogonal feature (you may want to make notes on a linked in profile or twitter profile, all can be done with a plugin). Unfortunately syncing between different browsers is a hassle but for me it is enough to have notes on one PC

Gurkenglas

Gurkenglas bought M$203 months ago

I'm weakly guessing M'd like to sort `Your Trades` by the amount he could add to his balance by selling his position there. I've long wanted this, but here's M$ 20 for prompting me to think of this being different from "amount his balance would change by selling his entire position in that market", which is silly and yet another argument for merging all of a user's positions per market.
M

M bought M$33 months ago

@Em of the Night > I'm not sure what is here meant by current placed, can I get clarification? Ops, I meant "currently placed bets/trades". I was unsure which word to select and used neither. When I look at markets I sometimes open it just to discover that I placed some bet there (often loan-based one as my point supply is low). It would be nice to have ability to distinguish fresh markets from ones where I participated already. There is plenty of space available, enough to display "20 for NO" or "737 for NO, 12 for YES" or "position sold".

Show me money in and out of my liquid balance for the last X days or by month. Like a bank would show you. Let’s not be all mystique like eBay about the cash flows! I would rate this more important than the “performance tracking” features.

That'd be fun, but hosting images can get pricey real quickly. I can see them not wanting to do that. *Embedding* imgs hosted elsewhere might do.

I'm not worried about the cost so much as the tone shift of the site - I kinda like how text-based it is at the moment, reminiscent more of old-school text forums than meme-y modern sites. That said, I think image support is one of the "when, not if" features.

Some answers are meta about the market's chart or some other market's chart. The given scale on the chart can make it hard to read off. In addition hover tips showing the % and date/time at each point would be useful. Downloading as csv would be useful too.

I don't see how browser zoom helps. If you have a market open for 3 months and you want to see the last 3 hours trading in detail, with minutely markers on the X axis. Like most trading charts online let you do.

Currently, when I buy an option multiple times (e.g., when balancing probabilities between two answers), all my trades are listed in the timeline view (forever) and are clogging the screen. I need to scroll down lots to even see the next answer. My feature request is to bundle them the same way other trades are bundled, e.g., "You bought M$ 50 and sold M$ 10. 2 weeks ago".
