Join The Motley Fool Discussion Boards
A few weeks back I had mentioned that The Motley Fool was going to be eliminating their membership service and the discussion boards would be free for everyone to read.
However, in order to have the ability to post on the discussion boards you would have to be invited by an existing Fool member.
Just the other day I had noticed that I now have the ability to invite new people to become a member at The Motley Fool discussion boards. From what I remember at the time of the announcement, I will only receive 20 invitations so I will be offering them on a first-come, first-serve basis.
I Want To Be Invited
If you would like an invitation, simply comment on this post and include a valid email address that I can use to send you the invitation. That’s all you need to do!
Once you are signed up as a member, I believe you will then have your own invitations that you can extend to people as well.
Benefits of the Fool
As I have mentioned before, I honestly credit the Fool discussion boards with providing me the information and tools to improve my financial situation and eliminate all of our non-mortgage debt.
I have to admit that I have been spending less and less time at the Fool in recent months but that is not due to the quality of their service. My time commitments at work have increased and the free time I do have is now spent with my family and working on my blogs, which unfortunately does not leave me much time to spend at the Fool.
The Fool contains discussion boards on just about every topic that you can think of and the people in the community are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. One thing that always amazed me at the Fool was how willing and able people were to help one another even though you may have only known each other digitally.
I highly recommend the Fool discussion boards and will be more than happy to use my invitations for anyone that feels like they will get value out of becoming a member.
I would really like an invite to the boards, it looks like yet another invaluable resource provided by MNC.
Mark, the invitation has been sent. Please let me know if you experience any problems and I look forward to seeing you around the Fool (assuming I can find the time to be more active over there).
I’m all set up, what particular forums do you peruse over there? It seems very large, so helping me narrow down would be great.
Great! Here are a few of the forums that I frequent when I visit the Fool (not all of them are financial):
A Place for TA Talk
Buying and Maintaining a Car
Credit Cards and Consumer Debt
Help with this STUPID Computer
Living Below Your Means
Short Term Trading
As you mentioned, there are many different forums available and it will take some time to zero in on the boards that you are interested in the most. Feel free to shoot me any questions about the Fool and I will do my best to help you out.
Thanks a ton! I’ll be sure to check those out (I already found the credit card and living below your means boards)
Do they have a board devoted to wordpress? Or monetization?
Not specifically from what I remember, as those topics were usually brought up in the Webmaster’s Corner. However, if you ever feel there is a need for a new forum/board, you can send a request to the Fool asking for it to be created.
I think you can do that at Improve the Fool.
If you have any invitations left, I’d appreciate one. I used to be a member of the Fool, but I quit when they started charging for access and they started pushing their subscription newsletters… But I’d like to get back into the discussions there.
Flexo, absolutely! The invitation has been sent so please let me know if you encounter any problems getting signed up.
I’d like an invitation. Thanks!
The invite is on its way.
What does the invitation look like? I don’t think I received it yet. Maybe it didn’t like the part before the @ sign in my e-mail? I’ve had trouble signing up with that e-mail address because some spam filters don’t like it.
It would have included the following canned text:
“Motley Fool member dsemmler has invited you to become a discussion boards member which includes complete posting abilities on the Fool discussion boards! Posting on the Fool discussion boards is invitation-only. By accepting the invitation, you will be joining what many have called the greatest discussion boards on the Internet.”
I’ve inquired at the Fool about resending or deleteing an invite so I can try again. I had to try multiple times for Nickel as well as the first time it never seemed to make it through.
This sounds great. Please invite me.
Me too! Me too! Thanks,
@Nickel – I think yours finally went through. Let me know.
@NCN – Just sent off the invite, you should have it soon.
I posted about this this afternoon but have met my quota. So I’m going to send people over here.
JLP, that would be great. I’ve still got a handful of invitations left and don’t mind sharing them as long as I have them.
I’ve never been to the Fool Boards, but it looks good. I wouldn’t mind an invite if you got one left. I’ll be happy to give out some referrals as well.
Jonathon, your invitation has been sent and hopefully will arrive shortly. Please let me know if you run into any trouble.
Your comment got caught in my spam filter so I almost missed it.
If you have any invites left I would love one, thanks!
Invite has been sent.
Hi! I see I’m a little late in the game but if you have any left I would appreciate the invite! Thanks!
I’ve still got a few invitations remaining so I sent one your way, it should arrive soon.
Hi! Please invite me if possible. Thanks.
I’d love an invite if you have any more outstanding 🙂
Hey, I’d love an invite if you have any left. 🙂
Me too, me too, please!
I would like an invitation if you have any left.
All requests above have had the invites delivered. Please let me know if you do not receive the invite or otherwise have a problem signing up at the Fool.
If you have any more remaining, I would really appreciate one.
@Mike: Invite has been sent!
@All: Once you are signed up, please take advantage of the 20 invitations that you will receive and give them away to people you know or readers of your site (feel free to mention you were originally invited by yours truly, lol).
I would love an invite if you still have any remaining. Thanks.
Would like an invitation. Thank you.
If you’ve got any invites left, I would appreciate it.

@Weary: I contacted you via email as your email address is blocked at the Fool.
I would like an invite as well. Thanks so much!
May I have an invitation? I would really appreciate it! =)
@Natalie: The invite should be on its way!
@Wilson: I’ve sent you an invite as well, hope you enjoy!
Yay! You are awesome. Thanks!

If it’s not too late, I would appreciate an invite. Thank you.
@Mark, @Johnny: Unfortunately I have met my limit of 20 invitations and do not have any left.
You might want to try visiting FinancialDominance.com as I believe there are still invites available there.
If anyone else that I invited is offering invites on their site, please feel free to contact me with a link and I will post an update directing users to your site.
