It will be great @Liberty, lets hope the best for our forum, but i think it wont be private from today
Mido, you can still say we will keep being private as long as new Basic members are approved by the administration and moderators.
As long as I will administrate the forum, I will for sure not change this way to "select" members. I prefer a few members than a tons of members who don't share some important values like honesty, sharing, community spirit, help between members and so on...
Also added some competition between members but a friendly competition like when you do sports. Popular forums are too focused on a selfish attitude between investors particularly the big promoters. Members are not seen in our forum as promoters but members who want to share a good opportunity with other members of the community.
