Basic Questions

Hi, My apologies for cluttering up this forum with basic stuff. I was looking for a FAQ that might have had my answers.
1. Is there a reason why there is only backtest data from 1998? Why not catch that crash in the late 80s?
2. How many members are on this site? Is it growing? From the public posts, it seems pretty quiet.
3. Have any of the members created a 2.00+ Sharpe project that anyone is sharing/selling?
4. I'm a little unclear on what a paying subscription gives. Do I have full access to test things out without a paid subscription.

Again, I'm sorry for these basic questions in the main Forum. Hopefully someone will kindly answer or direct me to the correct pages.
Update Backtest








Welcome @Benj!
1 > No reason specifically; just that data is expensive and hard to get :) We have all the US tick data -- every single trade which has ever happened since 1998. Its huge!
2> We have 11,000+ members now :) They're pretty quiet folks!
3> Most people are fairly protective of their alpha, I'm not sure they'll want to sell it.
4> Details of what a subscription benefits are on the landing page of the backtester. You can only do live trading with a subscription because we rent a server on your behalf. Mostly though it is to support the open source project and making the platform better for everyone.
