More that one year ago, Carolyn posted the link below. I think it's self-explanatory.

So much talk about Twitter these days. Maybe a good time to say thank you to the guy who has been instrumental in keeping SI a largely conflict free platform for many years.

And a very Merry Christmas to you and to those who read this message.

A personal note yo my fellow SI members:

Looks like this recent donation drive brought in around $4,200. Half of it came from two very generous donors.

According to the forum stats there are 38,000 pairs of eyeballs on this forum. Even if we assume that only 10% are active, we should have done a lot better than $4,200.

Come on folks, lets get into the SI spirit and make this a VERY Merry Christmas for Ron.

Welcome! Always nice to have new users here. Take a look around, ask questions if you need to, and people here will try to help.

In some ways the site is still a "work in progress" as an older investment site and a decidedly old "World Wide Web 1.0a" look here, but many features have been added since those days.

A lot of great history here though, and many smart people posted here when the site first went online, including Michael Burry of "The Big Short" fame.

The The History of Silicon Investor is a great thread, and is maintained mostly by SI Ron (Crazy Soup Man) here, this site's admin.

Hi. I'm new here. I followed chowder over from the SA site. I'm mainly a dividend growth investor. Retired about 1 year and planning to use divs to supplement our budget. Currently living on SS + some savings. I'm sure our income level is tiny compared to most here. As long as it is enough for us to pay the bills and maintain our current lifestyle (which is very modest), I will be happy. I am self-taught and have been buying individual stocks since 2009. I also sell cash-secured puts and covered calls on some positions. I hope to learn some new things on this site. I'm especially interested in solid dividend growth stocks and other 'safe' income ideas. Ex: I have several I-Bonds for money not needed in the next year. Thanks for adding me to the site!
