That's good news! I WILL hold the required amount again, can't believe I sold 100 two years ago (though they did fund a four day trip!) and only kept 20 :-(

That's good to know. I remember jonjo saying after his round table meeting that they might be reviewing the eligibility level. Do you know any more information about it?

What a shame but at least you had a great holiday. And let's hope the price drops a little bit more before any of us buy.

Gutted I sold mine. So upset at this as I stubbornly held onto mine until the last minute - fxcm stopped doing small a/cs and I was forced to sell but I would have found a solution if Id have had an inkling this would happen.

Just whispers and rumours at the moment, but I remain hopeful that they'll do the right thing At least with photo ID the chance of membership abuse going forward will be reduced.

Indeed. Membership abuse is quite high at the monent, and people willling to lend their cards etc should have them taken away so the rest of us can still enjoy them ;-)

At present if you were a shareholder before 1st October 2000 you do not need the additional shares to re-new. There was some discussion about the cut off date being extended. If you purchased your shares in November 2000 for example you have lost out and now have to have 100 shares to re-new. They might extend the cut off date for shares purchased to the end of 2000 and they are looking at how many people this will effect to see if it this is possible.

We were told more than 1 million Euros a year was being lost due to shareholder card abuse which is a lot of money.

That's what annoys me - shareholders who abuse it and non-shareholders who take advantage of shareholder friends. Nothing has to be done and this is probably the way to do it. If it means you've invested £500 to be told they are worthless (in that you don't get your privileges for shareholder abuse) then maybe people will think twice before lending their cards?

With larger investment in shares I would like to see a slightly better food discount,maybe extend it to counter service meals..? That would def make me spend in the park rather then use McDs and Earl of Sandwich.

Doubt it will make any difference to me then as I bought mine in 2004.

I used to feel guilty but don't now, especially after waiting ages last yr behind someone with an AP who bought lots and wanted to pay in 3 separate transactions. fortunately I have been lucky with usually being the only one in the queue

I will definately buy some more shares tomorrow, they have dropped from the last time they did cheap dealing so I have saved by delaying

I have just bought another 45 shares, just need 35 more but I still have 12 months to buy them before I need to renew. Glad I didn't purchase them a while back as the price has now dropped below €5 a share so I have saved.
