Finance and Travel Forum Suggestion Thread
Posted 28 April 2004 - 09:49 PM
What kind of organization do you want in the forum?
Would you like to see some sort of filtering criteria like we have in IRD?
I listed some of the popular finance topics here Are there other major topics you think should be added?
Please add any other suggestions and questions you have.

Feel free to post any of the requests for moving old threads in this thread for now or just PM me directly and i'll move stuff as necessary.
Should the requests to move finance threads to this forum go here or in another thread?
For new threads that pop in IRD or other parts of the board, just use the normal "Report This Post" to request that a moderator move over a new posting into finance.

Nice Job! Glad to see this finally. I'm wondering if we should have a seperate major category for credit repair and/or debt reduction, not sure if we want to focus on that kind of topic.
Also, I'm thinking of a topic including finance related tools, software, internet calculators, and informational links as well, kind of like a finance toolkit.
credit repair and debt reduction
Finance Tools, software, internet calculators, informational links
I wouldn't mind seeing some of these split up to their own FAQs or at least dedicated threads with some of the popular info by OPs who might have a little more experience.
Then I can go ahead and link these threads up to the Master List for Finance.
It spreads out the work a little too and gives people with their vast knowledge in finance the ability to add to the forum.
We might also want people to have main lists that collect the current deals for various topics. For example, dewolfxy did the cashback thread with current deals. Someone else could create a thread that collects the current Checking Account Deals on bargainshare or a thread that collects Free Checking Accounts.

Do you mean I-Bonds and E-Bonds from the US Gov't, or are you referring to bond investing in general (municipal bonds, etc)?
I would like to see a thread on Savings Bonds. Pros, cons, current rates, etc.
I-Bonds and E-Bonds became a lot less popular a while back when the gov't stopped the practice of buying them with credit cards (thus getting you reward points) and before that when the minimum holding period went from 6 to 12 months. But they still do provide a very solid (if low-interest) investment, and a FAQ would be useful.

We've enabled it so that members can make replies but not new posts in the "bot" forums so that topics with real content don't get lost. (Product reviews is the exception for now)
Why can't we start new threads in the Financial News forum?
At least for the time being until it's developed further.
