I know that with the high level of email spam around today (Trust me, I recieve my fair share of it) people are concerned about registering for anything on the internet. Well, I just want you all to know that if you register as a member of Aussie Stock Forums your email address will never, ever be shared with any third party and will be kept in the strictest confidence. The only correspondence you will ever receive is directly from me and you can even opt out of that in your user control panel if you wish.

Also, once you register you will be able to see all the stock charts that at the moment simply appear as : "Attached Images *******.gif (10.1 KB, 10 views)", as well as a whole range of advanced features that make the forums much more useful, including the search function.

Just thought I'd clarify the situation. Carry on!

:)

Hi Guys;)))

This is my first post here after registering the other day.......
Before I start -officially- posting ..........
Can you please (Joe or other individuals in the know- closer to "esoteric" things) tell us what has happened with Hotcopper and its erstwhile parent company TFA (The Financial Arena). Has there been a fall-out between directors? Is Hotcopper now owned by "Adelaide" based interests, under the umbrella of "moneybags.com"?
The Financial Arena is now controlling and promoting OZESTOCK and SHARECAFE?
What about that other forum (also based in Adelaide) sharescene? Are they (as I believe always have been...) Hotcopper's little "brother"?
Is it JUST a "separation" out of convenience because the "situtiation" thus necessitates?
Finally......Are you linked in anyway with the above Fora (and companies)....
I used to post prolifically at Hotcopper, untill I realised that "SOMETHING" was wrong with that mob......Could you please enlighten us, if (of-course...of-course) your kindness were to prevail?
Merci in anticipation:)))

PS. No kudos for those who will suss out who I am.........
PS1. A wonderful Sunday wish I thy all:))))

Welcome to ASF Bronte & Epsilon!!

Glad you guys have taken the time to join, enjoy all the functionality you get with your registration including the many attachments.

From my understanding, Joe runs this on his own and has no affiliation with the sites mentioned by Epsilon. I don't know what the situation with those sites is either- sorry. Just as a quick point, we ARE different to those sites, much different imho. In fact, we have a code of conduct and posting guidelines and other rules which we actually apply so it's worthwhile checking out the links (at the foot of each page and at the top of each forum, respectively) to familiarise yourself with our 'spirit' here on ASF. Also remember that we have a monthly stock tipping competition and a great search tool which you will find useful.

Happy posting and enjoy your time here folks!

Hi Epsilon, welcome to Aussie Stock Forums!

In answer to your question, no Aussie Stock Forums is not affiliated with any other financial forum or website. It was born one night after a few too many beers initally as a hobby... but it has since grown into much more than that.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the site! :)

Cheers!
Joe

P.S. A hearty welcome to Bronte as well.

I think in general the people who visit this forum are the type who listen more than speak, and speak only when they have something useful to add. Unlike some forums where people say a lot of crap and there is a high frequency of posts.

That's the impression I get anyway when I visit this forum and compare it to another one.

It would be great to have some fresh input. Often feels as though it's the same people, now few in number, regularly contributing. That gets tedious and boring for both those contributors and anyone reading.
As a result people drift away.
A forum, like any other part of society, is only as good as the combined contributions of its members.

Yes, it would be nice to see some new regular contributing members here at ASF.

Hard to believe this thread is now almost nine years old!

What Keith says is true. Of the 300 or more visitors that you see in the Currently Active Users, many are search engine spiders or spam bots. Many others are just passing through, brought here by a search engine or link on another website.

That being said, it would be nice to see some of our long term lurkers register and post. There is a little bit of end-of-financial-year lethargy in the air and we could certainly use some new blood. So, if you're out there reading this and are thinking about registering and contributing, please feel free to do so.

We'd love to have you on board. :)

Greetings.

Finally had to join an Australian site.
Although I am not overly skilled in making money on the stock market, I am very skilled in losing money on the said market. Should any one require my aforementioned skills, then I will be very pleased to share them.
In all seriousness I am an invest and hold type of market participant. Am establishing my SMSF and am looking to populate it with a better choice of entities, so will be picking a few brains, and hopefully may be of some small value to this community. Please feel free to tell me when/if I breach any forum rules so I can slot into this forum as painlessly as possible

Thanks sydbod

I fall into this category :).

I've been a lurker and newbie investor for the last 3 years and am still learning a lot everytime I visit. Once I feel that I have enough experience and that my knowledge/opinion can be of benefit to others, I would probably start contributing. However, at this stage, there are many more knowledgeable individuals on this forum who would be able to provide more constructive topics/feedback/comments than I.
