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.

Nice sentiment, LKK, even if it can't be fulfilled ;-)

Thanks Richard--figured it was a longshot but worth a try

Isn't it interesting that only 4 people were nominated this year and one of those declined

A few years ago this was a pretty big deal and an honor. For some reason it no longer strikes a chord with the public community. In fact, even the paid subscribers appear to have no interest this year. What has changed?

It's funny, because IIRC TMF cancelled the award entirely a few years ago, and then brought it back because of public outrage. Maybe people are just never happy.

Patience, guys. If this thing goes like it usually does, we'll get at least 4 or 5 more noms before the deadline, which isn't till the 14th. People are just procrastinating as always. There will be more nominations, just not till the last week.

I quit caring when they refused to put ROTJob on the ballot.

Speaking of, I don't think anyone has announced the start of that other award. Did I miss the post somewhere?

The first rule of that other aware is that there is no other award.

I must have missed those years.

But I only joined about 10 or 15 years ago, so that's probably why.

I still post on the public boards as well as on the premium services, although not as much in either as I would like.
