I remember a few years ago when I heard about investors in websites. I heard it from @Jordan who's also on here and conveniently for this topic; an investor. So I've always wondered what an investor is when it comes to a forum. I've always imagined them as a partner (but with more money). A partner that actually contributes because like me they have an invested interest. To a new forum people that are active can be huge, and those with more experience can help even more, so is taking on a partner or investor a good thing to do in these times? What are the pro's, con's, and where do you find such people? Might be an interesting topic.
