We're pleased to announce an update is coming to the community boards.
Saturday, September 24th: We are migrating the boards to a new platform. The site is currently in read-only mode and we will bring it back online as soon as the migration is complete.
I've had a few days to process this MP news. I have no doubt a lot of thought was put into closing down IV and its sister newsletters in favor of Market Pass. And I respect that decision. I'm just lucky to have gotten to know TMF and be able to participate in the discussion when time allows. Yet, I cannot help but wonder if this decision will be akin to Netflix's Qwikster fiasco. I don't really see any excitement about MP from the non-TMF/non-CMF crowd. It's mostly just a lot of confusion, anger, surprise, feelings of betrayal, and overall a sense of unease and distaste. I have no idea if the goal here is to streamline the TMF biz or if there just aren't enough subs to support the services. Or did the transition/marketing team just outright fail and Fools aren't getting the full story? I wasn't there, I don't know. Maybe the mystery of it is part of the allure. Or, most likely, it's none of our business. I get closing failing newsletters/portfolio services. But ditching a success story like IV? I suppose it's not really been "ditched." In some ways, it's even worse. It's now like the dying cable services - you're forced to purchase everything through MP (HH, II, 'special reports') even though you may just want some solid IV type investment ideas. Ah well. It is what it is. I'll be at SN... unless that too will soon morph into a new beast?! Still disappointed,FJ
