I would like to nominate an entire board community for the Feste Award

As the public portion of the Fool shrinks every year, small enclaves remain of talented people drawn together by mutual interests that range from politics to sports and even the stock market.

I have watched the interest in stocks and participation on the public boards wither away over the past few years coincidentally as the newsletter empire gathered steam and closed off a huge part of the Fool to non-subscribers. A lot of good analysts and interesting people disappeared forever.

For the few investment boards that remain, I feel that the whole community participating in the discussions deserves an award for keeping the mission alive--educate amuse enrich. They do it because they love it. They make the place worth continuing to frequent. Individually they may not have sufficient content to get someone to nominate them, but put all the effort and work together and you have something far more valuable than any single individual

I nominate the Value Hounds Board

I could go on and on. The one thing that is amazing and gratifying is the discussion that can follow even just a germ of an idea.

The people that make up the community deserve the award.They do the heavy lifting and make what's left of the Fool a good place to be.
