I like this idea. The way the site is set up works nicely for long term posters who have at least scanned at some point most of what’s on the site already and probably depend mainly on the latest posts page. But for new users and especially those who don’t intend to become active pinsters and are just looking for some general advice on property or opinions on a particular WIW.

I feel like I want to tell them to read National Debt, End game in Europe and Long Term Value of Irish property… So maybe even having a link for ‘thinking of buying and looking for advice - here are some topics you might find useful’ link?

2009 Bah!


on improving the site;

You see a lot of +1s out there, but rarely more than one person doing it for a particular comment. Might be good if there was a +1 button, and displayed at each comment there was the number of times it has bee '+1’ed (and a link to see a list of who they were). This might help to give a sense of consensus as threads reach their natural conclusion.

There are a couple of people who’s comments i find worth reading. It’d be nice if there was some way of checking to see any new comments from those people when i log in.

Personally I’ve always felt that in its quiet understated way that this thread - from the month prior to the Guarantee, clearly showing that Ireland was heading for a credit deflation cycle with all the inevitable consequences for the solvency of the Irish banks that that would entail - is one of the more important ones in the history of the Pin, whose implications are still not fully grasped by 99% of people.


+1. The Pin at it’s best.
