Bhawk, you can adcertise, simply contact Matt and he will set you up. You can contact members through the pm feature, but spamming them will get you banned, so introduce yourself and see if there is a common goal instead of a hard hitting pitch.
I get tons of emails and more opportunities to do business than I could ever do by myself. I get them because I have contributed in the forums. I provide my advice and opinions without any sales pitch ever!
If people expect to come in and not really contribute but just want to hit us up off the bat, they need to keep moving on. This forum is to make connections through participation and assist others. It is to serve the investment community not a gold mine to dig deals from on the first day.
There is alot of good information here and plenty of topics to address, you may have to dig some and search for your interests.
Admittedly the site is slow, but that's due to the spammers and non-contributors and we are strating to get rid of them and get back to the purpose.
Hope you'll contribute and join in, there is plenty of business here if you are tactful and polite. Good luck
