well, I don't know. Maybe they just want to read, and not post. It's free to join.

There is no extra feature on this site for donating. Donor and non-donors, for the past 3 years, have enjoyed the exact same features. By community choice.

Glad to know. Im inviting a bunch from cb to come on over and join. I received a lot of e-mails today after my suspension. They want to understand the friends list. I'll have to learn it, so those that aren't interested in finances and real estate don't get bothered.

you can form a social group, that you can make private, and only people you allow can join it. It's a little bit different than friends only posts on CB (because it's not in the forum, it's in the group).

Mike's right, that's the feature I wish he'd restore. Jeff, I explained it poorly, it was when you clicked on "currently active users" at the bottom of the page that it would show what everyone was working on.

I had no idea the other feature existed. Huh.

So put it to a vote already, is this a democracy or not?

It's a Mikeocracy, meaning that unless it is something that Mike strongly opposes (usually for good reason) he'll let the people decide.

I have no problem with that either. Mike does enough for the site, he should have some (and a majority) say in how it works.

He seems to be fairly willing to add or change things and is very helpful to the new members. That is nice. The board has a lot of good features that are hard to learn, but when you do, its' alright, imo.
