Greetings, Folks --

For anyone still on the fence about subscribing to our Fool Community (http://www.fool.com/features/2002/a020128.htm), the list below may help you make up your mind, as it points out how much this community has to offer. (Remember that today is the last day to get two years for the price of one.)

(Actually, on *this* board, I suspect that many folks get at least $30 worth of value from just one piece of advice! :))

(And for those who just can't soak up enough tax information, may I recommend our newly-published Motley Fool Tax Guide 2002? It's full of TMF Taxes wisdom, and is at: http://www.foolmart.com/shopping/Product_View.asp?PRODUCT_ID=MF033_02)

The list below is worthy of many people's attention. It's by no means comprehensive, but perhaps you'll stumble upon a few interesting nooks or crannies. (Some of these boards are woefully neglected -- if so and they're for a topic you're interested in, post a message or two anyway, as it might help attract more readers. For every new board to thrive, it needs a few people to take a chance and start a discussion.)

WARNING: This is a VERY long list. One good strategy might be to scan through it, clicking in and out of various boards. When you click into a promising board, click the red heart to make it one of your favorite boards. Then you can go back later to read through it at your convenience and see if you like it. If you don't, remove it from your favorites. If you like it, leave it there and see what conversations develop in the future. Keeping it as a favorite will remind you to drop in now and then. I encourage you to scroll through to the end. The 67th or 82nd boards might be of great interest to you -- you never know!

Apologies in advance for the hundreds of interesting boards I've neglected to list. Feel free to list more -- especially on the first board below:
