Not Planned Sort by Net Worth vice Profit Margin

    Ok, I've had this for a little bit, and realized the sorting for Top Portfolio's is a little mis leading.

    Currently it sorts by your current profit margin (based on the stocks you currently own).

    Well, what about people who have the most net worth? For example, if a guy is making millions, and is well ahead of everyone, but then sells his stocks. He will be listed at 0% Profit Margin, and will look like he's not the richest member.

    So can you add a method to sort by the "richest" net worth? Profit margin is nice, but with I think ranking of Net Worth is much better especially when you want to see who's really "winning" or ahead.

    It used to be that way and people complained, because a person with 15 billion in on hand cash earned through Sportsbook and has 1 stock would be at the top of the so called "leader board" when all they owned was 1 share of stock.

    Networth is only good if you have no external way to earn "cash" other than what you make by selling shares of stock that increased. If people get points for posting and use it with sportsbook etc, then On Hand cash is worthless in determining anything related to a Stock Trader performance leaderboard.

    I personally would rather see Stock trader only related performance stats that are not tainted by on hand cash that could included monies earned else where.

    The Top Portfolio's is one of the next areas that is getting a face lift and will include the old original "Net Worth" rankings.
