'''Why Must I be a Paid Newsletter Subscriber to Contribute?'''<br>
 
One of the oft-repeated criticisms of wiki information sites is that they are vulnerable to vandalism and the malicious tainting of information. While it's possible to repair and defend against attacks to our integrity, we'd rather take the approach of requiring user names for all contributors. This will remove 99% of all misinformation-related problems, because we won't have random destructive visits to repair. It will also be highly unlikely that visitors will sabotage the information of competing organizations or viewpoints, because we will be able to easily track exactly who has done what. Paid newsletter subscribers are demonstrating a participation and commitment in the financial industry that makes them a great addition to our community of knowledge.

The [[John Lothian Newsletter]], [[Environmental Markets Newsletter]], [[John Lothian Newsletter - Metals Edition|JLN Metals Edition]] and [[John Lothian Newsletter - Managed Futures Edition|JLN Managed Futures Edition]] provide unique commentary and a daily overview of the news and events in the [[securities]], [[futures trading|futures]], [[derivatives]] and [[environmental market]]s around the world. Where other sites and newsletters focus on changing [[price]]s, our newsletters cover the events and people that move and shape the entire [[financial industry]].

== Three Good Reasons to Pay for a Subscription ==
 
 
'''1. Your paid subscription helps power the wiki.'''
 
 
Dedicated server hardware, editors and site administrators aren't free, and we need them all to make the MarketsWiki site a high quality, accurate and effective place to visit.  Newsletter subscriptions help make it possible to [[fund]] the people and equipment we need. Plus, while you're helping to fund the wiki, you're also getting an outstanding newsletter!
 
  
'''2. Registering helps us protect the wiki.'''

'''3. Editing a wiki is FUN AS HECK!!!'''
+
Please read our [[article creation standards]] and pay particular attention to NEUTRALITY.
  
Editing pages in a wiki is fun and, for some people, an addictive pastime. Finally, when you see nagging spelling errors or a formatting problem, you don't have to email requests or post comments in the hope of getting it fixed. Just edit the page and make it better!  If you know something about the CEO of XYZ [[Clearing]] [[Corporation]] that would be good for others to read, you can just add the information. If you know a lot about a kind of trading strategy that isn't covered in the wiki, you can write an article and know that the next time someone searches for that topic, they'll find your information.

Best of all, you add what you know, when you can. There are no minimum editing levels to meet. Not a great writer? No problem! Somebody else in the community will surely see what you've written and clean it up. It's a collaborative process: everybody contributes where they can.
