50,000 posts! | Aussie Inventory Boards


Smartly ASF is now 50,000 posts and a bit of greater than 2 years outdated!

As it is a vital milestone for ASF, I assumed I might take the chance to mention a couple of phrases and cope with a couple of problems on the similar time. Wager you were not anticipating this, had been you? :p:

ASF has been rather the rollercoaster experience since its inception in overdue Might 2004. Within the final two years I have had prison letters from the CEO of an ASX indexed corporate not easy that posts deemed to be ‘defamatory’ be got rid of, hate mail and harrassment from a banned member, one be offering to merge ASF with some other ASX based totally discussion board and two provides to shop for ASF outright. Plus, in fact, the standard day-to-day dramas and heachaches that pass in conjunction with operating a discussion board. However I am nonetheless having a great time and I plan on sticking round to observe this position develop.

There have been 3 details I sought after to in brief contact on:

Peace and Team spirit at ASF

I’ve spotted that the bigger ASF has gotten the much more likely it has turn out to be for conflicts between contributors to happen, growing a way of disharmony at the boards. I realise that some conflicts on a discussion board with this many contributors is inevitable, however I might hope that we will be able to stay it to a minimal. To ensure that this to be achievable I want the co-operation of all ASF contributors. I want other folks to be proactive about warding off war at the boards and to document troublemakers to me or one of the crucial moderators once conceivable.

When you in finding the posts of some other member nerve-racking or irritiating then I strongly urge you to position them in your forget about checklist. I’ve spotted that some contributors refuse to try this and I’m mystified as to the the reason why. It’s certainly the most productive means of warding off the posts of any individual who rubs you the unsuitable means and is a proactive step in warding off conflicts with others. On boards, as in lifestyles, we can inevitable come upon others we discover nerve-racking and aggravating. The bigger the neighborhood ASF turns into the much more likely it’s that there will likely be a number of individuals who meet this standards. Two tips I will be able to make that may make your lifestyles a long way much less irritating are:

1) Put them in your forget about checklist, or;
2) As tempting as it can be, don’t reply to their posts. Ever.

I know the way simple it’s to be drawn into war with others at the discussion board. And not using a frame language to look at and being reliant only on language to put across your ideas it’s simple for phrases to be sometimes misconstrued. In case you are unsure about what any individual supposed, simply ship them a snappy PM and ask them. That means, in the event that they did imply to insult you, you’ll be able to struggle by the use of PM and stay it off the boards. :D

If you’re feeling you’re being baited by means of any individual then please touch me by means of PM and I will be able to take the fitting motion. (No crowbars vital! :D )

A couple of pleasant reminders about posting

Please identify your thread as appropriately at conceivable. The thread identify is the one clue different contributors need to the content material of your thread so please take a second to believe the identify in moderation and check out and be as exact as you’ll be able to.

Please pay attention to your spelling and grammar for the sake of clarity. I do not be expecting everybody to be highest however please simply have a snappy learn via your put up ahead of you click on at the ‘Put up Publish’ button. It best takes a minute and you are going to be shocked at what number of inadvertant mistakes you are going to uncover… and with a bit of luck proper!

Do not overlook to make use of the ‘Record a put up’ characteristic to document posts that you’re feeling violate the ASF code of behavior is a way. The speedier a put up is reported the quicker it may be handled alone or one of the crucial moderators. To document a put up simply click on at the ‘


‘ icon that looks within the most sensible proper of the offending put up.

Please stay your signatures to throughout the outlined limits. Take into accout, you’re best allowed two unmarried spaced traces of textual content and one hyperlink. When you’ve got smilies to your signature that make it greater than two unmarried spaced traces please take away it or change it with some other, smaller one. Signatures which can be outdoor of those limits will likely be edited. If signatures turn out to be an excessive amount of of a subject matter at some point I would possibly believe getting rid of hyperlinks from them altogether.

Ramping is unhealthy. Do not do it. So is posting whilst under the influence of alcohol… I may not point out any names. :)

The Long run

I am very keen on the neighborhood now we have created right here and I want to see it keep growing and mature and the frame of data this is contained throughout the 2,900 atypical threads right here may also be ceaselessly constructed upon and expanded for the advantage of all. ASF has been a complete time process for me for a while now. I left complete time employment previous within the 12 months to dedicate all my energies to the control and management of the boards. In the case of income it is not complete time for me but however I imagine that it ultimately will likely be. So please, if in case you have discovered ASF to be treasured or if in case you have loved your time right here and located it to be profitable please believe supporting one of the advertisers or purchasing your funding books and tool during the ASF Funding Store. Each and every little bit is helping and is sincerely favored by means of me.

Over the following couple of months you might even see me experimenting with the location of the commercials as I try to optimise issues. My purpose with the commercials is to lead them to as unobstrusive as conceivable whilst nonetheless getting them observed. As you’ll be able to believe this can be a tricky stability so please endure with me till I in finding the gadget that works easiest.

Now for some fast thanks’s

Thanks to all those that have so generously donated cash to ASF. Your contributions are all the time very sincerely favored.

Thanks to ASF’s moderators RichKid and WayneL (and now ctp6360) who I do know were given greater than they bargained for once they agreed to provide their time to stay a watchful eye over the boards. Please all the time display them admire they deserve as volunteers. Being a moderator generally is a thankless process every now and then and I do know they do it as a result of they care concerning the web page.

And because of everybody else as neatly for contributing to the boards and for coming again and visiting ASF as steadily as you do. We’re greater than two times as busy this month as we had been in December. You must see such a lot of other folks made up our minds to take care of the prime requirements we have now set for ourselves right here. We could all try to stay ASF a lower above the remainder!

This used to be my first put up on ASF, made within the ASX Inventory Chat discussion board on Might 28, 2004:
