Perhaps the most important part of Fooldom, and easily one of our favorites, is our vast community of intelligent investors. For more than 18 years, it's been our vision to create the world's greatest investment community. At the heart of that vision has been our Motley Fool discussion boards.
Through our discussion boards, we’re connecting a community of Fools. Many Fools want to share stock ideas and deepen their knowledge about the stocks in his portfolio. Yet we also have boards that speak to broader interests such as paying off credit card debt or living below your means. We’re a diverse group of Fools with varying interests, and we want to harness our individual expertise to develop as investors and people.
We’re delighted that you’re participating in our boards. We believe that learning together is more fun -- and more powerful -- than going it alone. And to make sure your visit to our discussion boards is insightful, we’ve created a Motley Fool Community Team.
The Community Team
This team is made up of Fools from our community who embody the Foolish spirit of learning together and share our vision of building the world’s greatest investment community. We’ve broken the team into different roles, as you’ll see below. Overall you’ll see our community team do the following:
The Illuminating Team is a group of discussion board members who have demonstrated profound knowledge and expertise about stocks in a premium service portfolio. Within the Illuminating Team, you’ll encounter our Ticker Guides and Coverage Fools around the premium discussion boards to help our members become more knowledgeable about their stocks.
Ticker Guides, as designated by the icon, strive to keep the conversations going on a particular company’s discussion board. They provide insightful coverage of a stock on a specific discussion board. This coverage includes posting about earnings or news-related events, as well as leading larger discussions that provide value to all members.
Coverage Fools, as designated by the icon, expand beyond the role of a Ticker Guide by taking ownership of up to five recommended stocks in a service. Coverage Fools use their analytical expertise to consistently provide valuable insights that go beyond press releases to create well-informed board posts. In addition to valuable insights, this team distills key data from financial statements and supports a premium analyst team.
The Onboarding Team is a group of discussion board members who help grow and offer assistance to our community while embodying a Foolish spirit. Within the Onboarding Team, you’ll encounter our Welcome Greeters and Home Fools around the discussion boards to help our members have a great experience on our boards.
