    Wow! I cannot even believe this day has already come but yes it is true, this upcoming week will indeed be marking our 1st full year on this forum since our great migration from the old HSM (HotStockMarket.com)! That day will be on this upcoming Wednesday (March 29th), which was the day my user handle here was created. However, I believe the official site launch when we all moved over from HSM wasn't until 3rd of April if my memory serves correctly. Since I likely won't have the time later this week to create this thread, I figured to take this opportunity with the free time that I do have now this weekend to put this up.

    I don't even know where to begin here. It has truly been an amazing year since our community move here into Stockaholics. And although the move from our old home HSM into Stockaholics wasn't nearly as smooth or at least in the initial first few weeks, but overall I really think everything worked out pretty doggone good (even given that we started the board on a fresh clean database!), this was the best move for this community at the time as things over on our old home HSM were going downhill fairly quickly and for a few years really. The move into this awesome new forum platform was executed to perfection IMHO all thanks to our esteemed leader @Gil Oren who worked tirelessly all throughout the days and nights to get everything setup in time for the big switch over!

    It's been a pretty incredible year. And although we did lose quite a few of our old timers from the old boards during this move, at the same time we have also seen quite a few new members sign up and posting reguarly here! :D

    I have so many people to thank here for making this community what it is today...

    I feel like I'm missing a few others out there ... and I apologize if I did but these are honestly just going off the top of my head here. :p

    A big time thanks goes out to all of you who make this place the #1 traders/investors community on the 'net!

    I seriously cannot say it enough but this place just would not be possible w/o everyone's contributions/efforts around here!

    Happy 1-year Anniversary Stockaholics! And here's to many more yearly anniversary's! It's been fun.

    Great to have you here @Timbo and to all of our "new" members who were not with us during our HSM years. I think it's pretty doggone amazing how quickly this first year has passed by. Truth be told - I was almost forgetting about this first year anniversary until I remembered the late Bob Korreck who is also having an anniversary coming up here in a couple of weeks. However in the case of 'ole Bob that isn't quite a pleasant anniversary for me personally as he isn't with us. I'll have much more about him sometime early next month in another thread as we remember his 6-years since his passing...

    But, getting back to here. I think it's pretty awesome to see so many new people joining up here and becoming "regulars" to boot. While we may have lost a few of our old timers in the big refresh last year, we are quickly making up for that with the new folks like yourself @Timbo becoming great contributors at this community! I think we are very near to filling the void of our old timers who were lost during the great migration. Thx for being part of this community. We cannot thank you guys enough! You guys rock. :D

    What?

    1yr already?!?!

    That went by way too quickly!

    Thank you Cy for the thread and for everything that has helped get us here.

    It was a big jump coming over to a new forum platform and name, but things are growing nicely and we have an amazing community here!

    Looking forward to this next year with you all!

    Yeah I'm noticing most people joined up on April 3rd as well. I think I remember what happened here. Stockaholics wasn't formally opened to the public until April 3rd? If I'm not mistaken I believe that was the day when HSM officially went bye bye. Thus everyone migrated over to Stockaholics on that day. March 29th (which was when I joined) only a handful of members were on here helping to get everything setup with new threads, etc. in time for when the lights were to go out for good on HSM on April 3rd. Pretty sure that's what happened there haha. :p

    Just wanted to quickly confirm this, but yes it was indeed "April 3rd" that was our final day on HSM and our official first day on the Stockaholics.net domain name. Which means tomorrow will actually be the 1yr anniversary for this board. :p

    I can't imagine where I'd be now if I joined this site a year ago!?!?

    Only been 3 months for me... And I came in as green as you can get!.... At first, y'all were speaking in some strange language I couldn't understand!.... I recognized some of the words, like "is, the, or, and"... But the rest left me scratching my heado_O

    Now, only 3 short months later, I feel like I almost fit in:)

    Thanks to all the friendly helpful people for the insight and advice!!... And thanks to the admin for keeping the gears oiled and the wheels rolling!!

    Ditto for me as well. I have a friend that was on the HSM site when he first started in 08. He pointed me there but Google search pulled up this. I've since picked his brain since my first few trades nearly wiped me out, took a couple bottles of crown royal but he turned me on to a few of his plays, dude just hangs out at home trading and collecting rent on a few homes. This site has been a blessing, never can tell just who your rubbing elbows with, keep up the great work.

    The main thing I like is the fact I've never gotten a message telling me about the next to da moon play from someone that is front loaded wanting me to buy their sucker shares.Nice clean site, keep it up. Still green on the charts but I've learned a lot here. Would be great to have some shirts made up to sell, I'd be a buyer, wink,wink :D

    Whelp, don't look now but we are already coming up on our anniversary here at Stockaholics since the big switch from HSM.

    March 29th, 2016 was when Stockaholics.net was created, however it wasn't formally opened to everyone until April 3rd of that year I believe...or at least the HSM domain name redirect into Stockaholics wasn't official until then. Can't believe it's almost been 2 years! :eek:

    Anyway, will try to bump this thread later next week. Hope I remember. :p

    You're not kidding! It feels like a mere 3 months to me! ;) (So what took me so long to find this place?)
