    I noticed an overseas stock market forum have recently introduced a non-obligatory incentive function to their community. If a poster submits a quality contribution and another poster(s) want to express their gratification, then they can give them a donation. This is non-obligatory, exists along side the normal functioning of the forum and could be seen as an incentive for everyone to submit helpful posts.

    There is free qualifying criteria to be able to participate and as I said no one is obligated to participate but the incentive is there.

    This site has come a long way since the days and hats off to you Joe. Head and shoulders above the other garbage forum.

    If there is one thing you can easily do to improve this forum it is to remove some of the racial crap that gets posted (sound familiar)?

    Not really.

    I never paid out anything either. Most people said put it back into the site, so I did.

    But this is my favourite reply:

    I always wish dogbolter had come back later to see what happened to ASF. But he never did.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Yes, we are getting very tough on anything even vaguely racist. It's difficult to know where to draw the line sometimes, but I would rather be a bit too tough than too lax in this area.

    Please report any posts that you feel are over the line.

    Yes, very well done Joe on standing the test of time .

    I have seen quite a few "stock forums" come and go in this time , it can be a cruel world if not up to scratch.

    I remember coming in here years back 2005? under the name "geroanyday" for a short while and thinking it was a quality site .......... I was correct.

    buggared if i can remember my details from back then hence the new habit i,m wearing now.

    well done

    Joe, I would like to say congratulations and thanks also for ASF. It is a fantastic forum and I cannot find another that matches for quality information whether it be financial, general discussion or a place for enjoymment, wit and humour.

    Thanks to all the dedicated and highly articulate contributors who make this place terrific to visit and learn from. Your efforts appreciated by many.

    Sometimes I dig around and read old threads, which is how I came across this one today. Fascinating reading!

    I would like to add my congratulations too, Joe, on the success of ASF. What huge growth and recognition in 6 years. I think ASF is a great forum, which is why I am bumping this thread now.

    Cheers,

    And forgot to say before.............. Joe, you can indulge in a quiet little smile of satisfaction at the expense of dogbolter! He probably has a sly little peek from time to time without logging on.

    Many thanks for the kind words Ruby! It is always nice to know that people find ASF useful and that it's appreciated!

    This thread always brings back a lot of memories. Has it really been more than six years?!! It sure was a very different forum back then!

    I'll echo that 100%, Ruby. I don't think we often enough record our appreciation for what we enjoy, although mostly we're very quick to voice our complaint for what we dislike.

    Joe, it can't always be easy running a forum with so many different types of people with all our different views and expectations. I've been here since, I think, 2004. Much has changed, but one thing that has remained constant is your clear desire to be fair to everyone. Really well done, and thank you.

    Cheers

    i think the forum is pretty good..

    the only criticism i have is that unlike other forums, this one doesnt protect you if fellow forum members go after you personally and keep the threads off topic from the share itself, or matters about the share, but make the posts a personal vendetta against an individual.. i know plenty who wont post here due to their experiences.. and i know plenty who post here knowing they can get away with a lot more here than anywhere else.. but i have managed to get a few members to post again on this forum, but there are still those out there who will read only but no longer contribute..

    where this one excels is in the quality of the posts, and the high quality of a lot of the members in many subjects matters...

    keep on improving...
