Hi Mark,

Welcome to Flossary...great question!

After all, if Flossary won't be be better than Investopedia, why do it?

Aside from the reasons Jeremy gave, note that the definitions in Flossary will have a Foolish point of view (e.g. we won't be scared to give our thoughts on technical analysis). Also, I believe Flossary definitions will be just plain better than Investopedia.

Want proof? To give you an idea of what Flossary can become, check out the definition for "financial statement" that Jim Mueller (TMFGebinr) blew out:

http://wiki.fool.com/wiki/Financial_statement

You'll notice the Foolish love as he explains the usefulness of footnotes and where you can find financial statements on the Web.

I looked for it on Investopedia, but they haven't defined the term "financial statement(s)". That's another advantage of Flossary...it'll provide more breadth of content including the more esoteric terms and even companies.

Hope that's helpful,
Anand
