I will also do my best to make them less visible for VIP members.

But yeah, charging for access here, in any way shape or form = not gonna happen. All of the snake-oil salesman out there touting 'the ultimate daily stocks to buy' lists is one of my prime motivations behind this forum.

Also we have plans to roll out a system where users of this forum can share in the ad revenue on threads they start. We are already seeing very heavy volume on certain threads here so if you are a strong poster here you could be well rewarded. We appreciate and respect the amount of time a solid research post can take, so we hope this will help stimulate solid due diligence in stock pick/tutorial style threads. More about this soon.

Great ideas. I didn't know this forum cost that much to provide. Maybe you could put a central donate button somewhere so we all can pitch in on a good day.

Thanks for your work and dedication!

Thanks Vic. I think the best way to donate is the way you have been - providing quality posts and alerts on stocks you follow.

This thread is a bit dated but right now we're breaking even on the bandwidth/equipment costs, via the advertising. The main goal with the forum was to have a place always ripe with killer stock picks, and I think we've come a long way as a group to accomplish that.

Thanks to all the members who keep this place worth visiting
