    I am assuming nobody has heard about a K-1 from CityVest Pathfinder. The "portal" lists the distribution for 12/30/21, but the check is listed as 1/5/22. So...when I file for my extension, do I estimate the income for 2021 or not? And what happens when you find out after the filing deadline that you should have filed in states that you didn't even know about?

    And by the way, since it is almost time for the Q1 report, did anybody hear about 2021 Q4 or 2021 Q3?

    Sorry, VagabondMD , on a hassle : profit analysis, this is the worst investment I've ever made.
    Breaking news! The Pathfinder K-1's have dropped. If you hurry, you can still file on time...unless you are like me and waiting for more K-1's.

    So it looks like cityvest has now listed the 21 Q3 and 21 Q4 reports...while suggesting they were posted 11/15/21 and 2/28/22, respectively.

    Which, of course, is utter nonsense. Just adding to the paper trail of this highly reputable organization....

    I don't despise how FB operates. Evidently many people are willing to trade their privacy for the things the company offers. I am not, but each to their own. I don't have a FB account, have never contributed to their profits and they leave me alone. Seems a fair deal.

    On the other hand, I have no problem with using reddit, which one can do without setting up an account. Combine that with ad blocking, not setting cookies, etc and I get to learn others' thoughts without becoming an asset of the company.

    Pages views and the time spent and referrals are the economic drivers. WCI was only discussing number of subscriptions. If lurkers found the data warehouse more useful, much likely to subscribe to the Forum. Your question is very valid, would it monetize? Might not be known until after.

    Google didn’t create a catalog of the internet, they created algorithms for relevance or exact matches. This search says “too many” or “nothing found”.
    Example: “Backdoor Roth Home Page”
    Just saying the data warehouse is difficult to use for a casual lurker and even most users. That data has value.

    Yes, it's interesting. Those who love it love it, but as far as reach and growth, both the Facebook Group and Subreddit whoop the forum hands down.

    Gotcha, well it is certainly much easier to click subscribe on Reddit than it is to register for a forum. Also I assume there are a lot of lurkers in both settings, I would guess more here since prior discussion topics are more easily searchable. I hope it perks up, maybe having someone regularly post topics (mirroring the website, or some of the classics) or would encourage more activity and discussion.
    Hard to say what the "right amount" of discussion is. There are downsides to a forum that is too busy. Look at bogleheads with hundreds of topics a day. You can't even read a tenth of them. Look at the WCI FB group where they scroll off so fast someone else asks the same question 2 days later, not knowing it was just asked. You don't necessarily want it dead, but it doesn't have to be crazy busy to be useful.

    I’m surprised you say the subreddit outperforms the forum. It always seems pretty dead to me. A small handful of new posts a day each with typically 5 comments or less. Every time I swing by there, I am underwhelmed by the lack of activity or interesting discussion. I use Reddit a lot, and wouldn’t mind seeing that WCI community grow.

    Never visited either one.
    Definitely higher than the FB group. Forum members tend to have a little more ego than the redditors though. They're all good for different reasons and have different audiences. Most who use one do not use either of the others.

    Without a doubt. Just trying to gauge how much cooler
