We're almost at 75 now...not long till we hit 100. I can't wait to see the future threads here! MJ is doing one hell of a job working on this place, and I am so glad that he's taking so much of is obviously valuable time to help all of us out. Also, I think we should have a section for people to share what they have already accomplished with business and real estate. I know we have plans for a section/profile aspect of that, but I just love to read success stories. It keeps me pumped up when working through the monotany of the day. Thanks again, MJ, Russ, Steve, Bear, etc! Don't be offended if I didn't mention you; we have too many successful people here ;-)

Great idea, Jesse.

Perhaps we could call the Forum "My Story" or something like that (MJ can probably come up with a different name that is a snarky tie-in to fast cars).

Each could title their thread with their screen name (e.g, "SteveO: My Story") or something like that.

I never did this on the RD forums, but I'd be willing to do it here.

Sounds great! I'm excited!

And yes, lots of new member. Only problem is that it's become much more difficult to stay up to date and read every post! :eusa_clap:

Just wanted to give congrats to site for passing the 200 mark. As far as I know only 3 bans. That gives high marks to the quality of folks who have joined this forum.

Thanks guys ... here are my thoughts:

This is our party. We're all chilling, smoking cigars, drinking beers and listening to music that everyone loves. Some people are outside swimming. Others are inside playing pool. A few others sit on the patio talking, drinking some fufu drinks with umbrellas.

However, if someone storms into the party,turns off the stereo, and then promptly yells "WTF? I don't like this music and I'm changing it" --they'll be shown the door promptly. If the refuse to go, Peter2 our resident bouncer, will promptly escort them out.

What happened to the members section, that listed each member, join date, etc...

Mere curiosity, I guess.

I've also been wondering the recently. Only thing I've been able to do is find it in the Old Style Default Blue menu.

Yves beat me to the punch, but congrats on 300 members. I have only seen three trolls/spammers in that time. 99% quality posters is pretty damn good imo. Well done, I hope this site continues to grow with quality.

Approaching 1,000 threads! And none of them say Ron Paul for President (I actually like Ron Paul so Jesse don't get all huffy!) or 911 Was an Inside Job!!
That was another short-term goal for this place and it is fast approaching! Woo hoo!!

*here?!?*

I think most people who joined this month (January) are those who made new years' resolutions and while researching for specific q's and A's, found that some other top don positive thinker already asked, hence wanting to join the coolol'Club! I found it when I googled something to do with making my first million this year. Its been a nice ride trying to read all the posts. Good job everybody.

Love the new members!

MJ has done a great job here building a successful online "family" community!

I must say, with all the threads, I have spent the better part of the day doing nothing but reading, researching, reading,and continually being inspired with each thread I read.
In fact, my wife asked if I was going to do anything else today beside being on the computer all day!:coffee:

I just can't seem to get enough inspiration!

If I can say a quote (unless someone else has already said it),

"I must read and learn, read and learn, apply and succeed, apply and succeed!"

Anybody else feel this way?

My husband asked me the same thing! (But he doesn't disapprove. Just wondered what on Earth had me so enthralled.)

Crossed 3000 posts and approaching 1000 members. :hurray: I've seen a surge in visitors lately. Is this coming from Andrews site again or somewhere else?

Unfortunately, this is garbage traffic. I had to disable the CAPTCHA for registration and apparentely that has attracted lots of new members with intents to spam. It also has resulted in a lot of mechanized (bot) traffic.

I'd say of the last 50 joins, I've banned 40 of them -- half are .RU domains.

Unfortunately, this will continue until I move the forum to the new server.
