ValuePickr membership is growing by the day. We are no longer the small close-knit community where everyone knows everyone else.
As a community we have always wanted to promote a culture of generosity (sharing openly) and a culture of value-addition to each other and the community - by way of active collaboration. We believe each contribution is important - from the novice's questions, to the learner's inputs/pointed queries to the seasoned investor's refined interpretations. We need all - one is not complete/not useful without the other.
Naturally we expect all discussion and exchange to be cordial. There is space for disagreements and viewpoints coming from extreme ends, why else do we need discussions! BUT there is no space for personal attacks, uncivil remarks. Flaunting/pointing to one's achievements or the other's mistakes is also actively discouraged.
A couple of instances (Prasad portfolio and Hawkins threads) were highlighted and mediated/referred by Members in the past 1 or 2 weeks. The prompt intervention helped things from flaring up. Involved members also reached out to each other.
Let's keep it this way. Thanks for continued vigilance from Senior ValuePickrs.
There is no place for "Arrogance" in a high-quality collaborative community like ours. Let us encourage and respect "Humility" in all our exchanges.
