    Well, it seems most of us are re-introducing ourselves. I just want to say hello to all the SS members who have migrated over to this site and will keep my fingers crossed that this forum will be moderated as well as the SS was, and we can all play together nicely in the sand pit ;).

    I'm curious to know who else has joined this forum other than those migrating from SS, and how they found the forum? I found SS after joining PI.com more than ten years ago, and found this forum fitted better for me. I have no memory of how I found PI.com and am just curious to know how people find these forums (other than knowing someone who recommends them).

    Hello stranger :).

    I've noticed a big handful of people who lurked but never posted on SS have signed up and started going for it here. Nice to see!

    I'm going to guess lots of people googled "property investment <area>" and ended up in a SS topic but I won't assume.

    I found my way there a few years ago while sussing out a company whose property seminar I'd just been to.

    i found ss probably 5 or more years ago when i was trying to get started just googling property investing. but i stuck to mags as i felt i was was to "green" for the likes of ss with the talk of planning, strategies and (my new favourite) mindset etc etc. plus overall "seemed to good to be true“ if only i hung in there before eventually joining a couple of years ago.

    Also started on PI.com 3 years back. SS just resonated better with me.

    Older forum by the Somers. Steve McKnights book was still fresh so lots of new people on PI leading each other astray, also they relaunched it with too many bugs so never went back.

    Hi Wylie

    SS was recommended to me by Joanmc and Moyjos and a few others from a forum for the frugally-minded. There was a group over there who discussed the path of property investments and, well, here I am :)

    I came to SS in 2006 after reading Jan Somers' More Wealth from Residential Property, which I found by chance whilst browsing in a bookstore.

    I found it from meetup!! So I went to the meetup hosted by Sim, and he recommended that I check out the forum. And the rest is history.

    Btw, I only got into meetup to try to find a Cantonese language group, (that failed very quickly), then I soon got into a bike riding group which was really fun. But then the main organiser of that group left, and the group was no longer the same....

    Yes thats how I found SS back in late 1999.. I saw Jan Somers being interviews on morning TV promoting here first book
    "Building Wealth from Residential Investment Property - How to become a property millionaire in 10 years.
    I went out and bought the book.
