    Just a thought...

    Could we bring some of the "classic" posts over from the other forum and put them in here? Maybe even some of the more recent topics that got started and were either hijacked or simply left behind. The Utah's 300 post, the Appreciation and Leverage post from Steve O., those types. Or even bringing just the original post from those threads if the replies are worthless. I know Steve O. had just resurrected his Appreciation and Leverage post and it was drawing good constructive conversation again until it too was hijacked.

    Go for it! Maybe someone can create an account called "OldPosts" and post some of the old goodies.

    Actually, direct copying is probably not a good idea as I could get hit with copyright infringement. Content is copyrighted.

    As an alternative, if you wrote the post, you can re-write it (aka. copy it). Also, generic questions cannot be copyrighted.

    MJ - What about you brings some of yours over yourself, would there still be any issues with copyright? Or would that exist just by them being on the RD site?

    It would be great if some of the classic posts from the likes of yourself, home_theater_guy, utah investor, and such could be put up as a "sticky."

    RichDad.com -- Rich Dad Poor Dad forums. This forum was prematurely started due to the decline in that forum's content - lots of political talk, network marketing, and general infiltration of "no-net-worth-know-it-alls". Many of the doers in that forum are now here. They had some really quality posts over there that ended up getting lost in the "noise".

    Seems like the content of most E-entrepreneur forums. In fact i was on YE for a bit trying to help with advice and got the same no net worth know-it-alls. Bunch of junk and MLM. Never went back there.

    Hey-- you're right-- lots of new smileys!

    What the heck does the banana mean?

    :banana:

    and does more than one banana mean something different?

    :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:
    :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:
    :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:
    :banana::banana::banana::banana::banana::banana:

    What the heck does the banana mean???

    I'll tell ya!.....

    :banana: "Its peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time..."

    Or for a better example of the banana in action:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaF5oUydNbM"]YouTube - Family Guy Peanut Butter Jelly Time[/ame]

    In my mind one of the series' better moments.

    PS: The smileys on this site are the best!!!

    I love Family Guy, but that wasn't a top 10 moment for me :coolgleamA: By the way, do the smileys extend beyond the normal screen width for anyone else?

    Which version are you using? Switch to Fastlane-Fluid. I haven't converted that template yet.


    <EDIT>
    I just fixed it ... it should show correctly on the Blue Default template.

    I've got my Financial Planners post from RD and I got Utah's 300 in pdf and word, I think? I also have Les Gee's: Noise the Well Story that is coming up in one of my blog posts. IF these were emailed to me from the original author, I see no copyright problems?

    Lance-

    I haven't read the RD join up rules in a looooong time, but to my knowledge, many sites say that your writing becomes their property (ie, you give up any copyrights to it).

    I find this ironic, b/c these same sites claim that the opinions expressed on their sites are not theirs-- but are of the users!

    (need a smiley of a guy scratching his head here)

    -Russ H.

    PS Whatcha been up to, Lance? :)

    I think if you are the author, you can post and re-post whatever you'd like. Express copying of other's authored material is the problem. The RD site, which is stuck in year 2001, is not on RSS either so the content is not available for syndication.

    Some time this week I'm gonna bring over my old posts ... there are a few.
