    Alright guys, I found this website when I started looking into ways of making money online thanks to an unexpected redundancy.
    I've been looking through all the threads and gathering info so that I can formulate an informed plan rather than just jumping into any old project and ending up with stuff everywhere.
    Anyways, just thought I'd best say hello and get my posting off the starting blocks. I look forward to getting better aquainted with some of the methods on the forum and I'll keep you updated when anything exciting happens.

    Just one minor point for the "Gurus" on the site, I've seen several newbies asking questions that some would find mundane, repetitive and basic, with the stock answer being Google it or check this WIKI link - I appreciate that you guys have the experience and knowledge but the people asking the questions have come to YOU for YOUR advice and YOUR knowledge. Google is flooded with rubbish these days and sites like this should try to look after their own users not push them away. Mini rant out of the way, let's get to work and make some cash.;)

    Welcome to the boards man...

    The thing is, most of us who aren't willing to spoonfeed people are the ones who spent up to 6 months here with our nose to the grindstone, learning and reading, before we made a single post asking for advice. With that said, it makes it impossible to want to help those that aren't willing to do the same kind of thing to help themselves.

    When people ask specific questions, they usually get quality responses.

    When people with a low post count just ask the general questions like "I'm new and need to know what direction to go in"...they usually get flamed, as they should.

    Success in IM takes a boatload of determintation and willingness to fail on your own a number of times before finding the pot of gold.
