I've been thinking that it would be cool to have "board elections"

Maybe pick a few posters who stand out and give them a title.

I've picked a few categories and nominated someone,

President:

OnTheRivet- lately he has almost turned this baord arounf 180 degrees, from a board that had become just emiller's stories and beginner questions to a revived board that is now analzying COHT and teaching at the sametime.

Leading Analyst-

KitKat- Is there really anyone close?

Sheriff-

PosFCF- He got everyone in shape and started the board transformation.

Historian-

1000- Who else knows what number poster everyone is?

Storyteller-
emiller- http://boards.fool.com/LastPosts.asp?limit=99&uid=119000458&byrecs=yes, need I say more?

Village Elders-

Matt1344 and GrandpaRalph

CourtJester-

ZtSmart- ;-)

and the last category:

Teen-who-has-nothing-else-to-do-so-he-learns-about-investing

Me :-)

What do you think?

-Mike

I think it would be a good idea to let gramparalph show his expertise and thinking in regards to DD and thinking processes that deal in numbers. He might even be able to show us how to "automate" and instantly upgrade numbers based on changes within companies, within sectors, and within the stock market as a whole.

Hello, my friend from Lisbon! Good to see you! Hope you jump in on this stock research going on, you have very much to offer.

Hey Poz! I've seen you face to face and I can say you definitely look the part!

Your requiremnets for the role of sheriff must be quite low! A beer-belly on a redneck usually only qualifies in the deep South. <<<GGGGG>>>

Thanks, Ken!

I was hesitant about posting it because I didn't want to offend. And I sincerely hope I didn't offend pkrfan with my humor. I like the overall idea, just had to have a bit of fun with the role he cast for me.

Hi Pos,

I"d be surprised if Mike was offended. Of course I remember Foghorn so you got me right off... It was funny ;-)

I see DCFNewbie kinda busted you ;-) Haven't seen him on the boards for some time, nice you drew him out of hiding... or maybe I'm just on different boards...

Regards, Ken (Wondering if we should break out the banjos???)

Hi Philip,

Historian sounds really good to me. I do have everyone's number. hehehe
And I love the history of the board. Its been a rich one.

I agree with Mike too that OntheRivet did a great job getting the COHT project started. And its doing great and I am happy that the board is creating stock research again.

To Mike

I will try to dig up that option tutorial.

First there'll be elections, and then rules, police, a "House UN-FCF Activities" commitee, subpoenas, the FCF. A "social insurance" program will be rammed through by a 4 term president - the board will ban more than 2 terms for presidents after that, but will keep the program he rammed through which will grow like a goiter on its neck. Eventually, cable news will be run by the entertainment divisions while the dominant form of media on the entertainment channels will be soft-core porn starring the surgically enhanced "new nubility."

No thanks on that democracy stuff. Its a slippery slope.

I wanna be conspiracy theorist.

It doesn't seem like anyone else wants the job. I'll even wear funny hermit clothes and a sandwich board placard when in town.

"Haven't seen him on the boards for some time, nice you drew him out of hiding... or maybe I'm just on different boards..."

FC is my one and only board!

Unfortunately being a technology sales gopher doesn't leave much time to post relevant topics here at FC. Unemployment was, in that respect, much more flexible.

I'm trying to set some time at the weekends to keep up with the most rec'ed posts. I've see there have been a few good aditions to the community (namely pkrfan48). Obviously I've also become somewhat concerned with recent events, but I see that many of the elders have taken a responsible posture and stood up for the "common values" of the board.

I was also thinking in (finally) posting my PKZ analysis (long overdue) this weekend. Lets see if I can keep that promise.

Regards to all,

DCFNewbie
