    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

      Hello. You have been asking for it and it is finally here. We have increased the number of reputation given in a day from 25 to 50. We will see how well 50 works out and if that is enough. Please continue to provide feedback and we will reevaluate as needed. This change has been added to the site changes thread located here. Happy repping. Thank you.

    You'd be surprised how much money you can make in a relatively short amount of time with the right type of investments and if she invests aggressively. That in addition to buying and selling stocks at the right time and market share can give her just enough money to support her lifestyle. I'm not saying that her boyfriend doesn't buy her things - he obviously does - but her whole life isn't financially dependent on him.

    I actually don't think most people know given how often someone comes out and says something along the lines of "she's living off of her boyfriend" or "her boyfriend buys her everything she owns". 
    And what I had acknowledged quite clearly that yes, she does spend frivolously but my point is that she might have more money saved up than we think she does, which would be the financially savvy part.

    @Olivercat - Investment banking is realistic to do and people who are in mid-late twenties generally start it when they start thinking about doing it when they begin their retirement savings plan. Most financial advisors at your average bank provide you with options for investment savings like mutual funds. Also, stocks are a lot more accessible for people to get into these days, and I am sure that while people in her life can give her advice (e.g. her boyfriend or her dad), she's ultimately making the decision for herself on which stocks she wants to purchase and invest in.

    Taylor's money
    Since the issue of how Taylor seems to earn money or how she lives off of her boyfriend comes up multiple times, I've decided to de-lurk and comment on this. I ain't white-knighting, but the answer to how she makes money has been in this forum the entire time.
    While she was in HK in 2012 she did this interview: http://hk.apple.nextmedia.com/financeestate/art/20120903/18006644 At about 0:55, Taylor says, "I think money sitting in the bank doesn't do much." The voiceover/interviewer in Cantonese follows up by saying that she does investments and buys stocks in American companies. In this more recent vlog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkuv4bTB-P0 Taylor talks about her investment banking at the 2:05 mark. She explains that she invested a lot of her modelling income at the time and those investments have now reached maturity. Based on these clips, Taylor is far more financially savvy than most people think she is (despite her frivolous spending).
    So to summarize: she buys stocks, has investment funds, made money from modelling and makes money from YouTube. I think we can all confidently say that she has her own money. Sure, her boyfriend might be loaded, but Taylor isn't just living off of him either.
