The year in review
To the wiki editors for their contributions;
And to the forum members whose ideas and insight make the wiki successful." --LadyGeek 22:23, 12 May 2015 (CDT)
"My thanks go to Larry and Alex, for continuing to provide us with our wiki platform. Many additional thanks to administrators Peculiar Investor and Lady
Geek for providing a fuller gamut of technical tools for the wiki; To wiki editors for contributions; and to our readers --Blbarnitz 04:40, 12 May 2015 (CDT)
This year saw an increased focus on international investing (domiciled outside the US). The addition of articles such as Investing from the Netherlands and Nonresident alien investors and Ireland domiciled ETFs show how Bogleheads' style investing can be applied world-wide. With the continuing global growth of index investing we remain hopeful that our site's global membership can expand our content to incorporate additional domiciles.[note 1]
The wiki continues to provide new investor guidance with articles such as [the] Importance of saving early and Why did my fund unexpectedly drop in value.
In addition to articles, the wiki provides spreadsheet tools developed and maintained by forum members.
On September 8, 2014, the Bogleheads Blog was moved to Financial Page and is now maintained by Barry Barnitz.
The wiki saw the addition of fifty new pages during the fiscal year. The most viewed new pages are included in the following table. For a complete list of new pages, refer to the 2014 - 2015 new pages box provided below.
