    PROOF MSG BOARDS ARE LOSING POSTERS!!!!

    As you can see by this link, http://www.investorvillage.com/smbd.asp?mb=160&pt=m, ELN on Investor Village shows that over 800 members and over 1800 guests (probably folks checking out alternative boards) have visited in the last 24 hours! Who even heard of Investor Village before this week?

    I did a search of messages on Yahoo's ELN board and saw that there were almost 500 postings between 6AM yesterday and 6AM today (for some reason, Yahoo's search function is not showing any results for postings after 6AM today), most of which were probably related to complaints about the new format. Then I did a search on the number of postings done since 6AM today on the ELN board on Investor Village and there's been over 400 posts! Considering they only have 1805 posts in total on the board and considering the number of people that have visited the ELN board on Investor Village in the last 24 hours, it tells me if Yahoo doesn't find a way to bring back something similar to the old format and the complainers on Yahoo see that their complaints are getting them nowhere, there's gonna be a mass exodus of all these people that are now posting on or at least checking out Investor Village.

    This 'upgrade' implementaion has been a disaster. Competitors like Investor Village are taking advantage. Even if Yahoo gains some of their traffic back, they won't recover all of it just like Coke didn't gain all of their market share after the New Coke fiasco. If this an indication of Yahoo's current business model, do you really want to be an investor in this stock as future 'upgrades' are implemented????

    • i was part of a board that averaged over 300 posts per day.
      it was a very tight, international community of about 30 folks....and we had some lurkers, don't know how many but some....anyway it was very civil market talk as most of us day traded or swing traded. we were together for about two years hidden on a tiny utility board......

      when the change happened in July, we moved -- our entire little community -- over to a Yahoo news board that kept the old format......but....we prepared an emergency meet-up if they killed the news boards too.

      this morning, they killed the news boards. and so we have moved to our new home >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Investor village.

      there are already 15 posts up of people checking in.

      yahoo must have a death wish. you shouldn't assume you can stuff crap down our throats and call it caviar.

      good bye yahoo
