Hi Big Mike,

I'm setting up a trader group with some other traders in London and I'm trying to work out our best method of communication.

I figured there might be a couple of options using futures.io (formerly BMT) - like a journal thread where I can personally add the other people who are allowed to post, or a private forum, or something similar.

Do you have anything like that?

Thanks

Sorry, no - such a thing is against the nature of an open discussion forum

Closest thing is to post in the Elite section, and thereby only Elite Members can read it.

I think that could be a cool feature to have for members. A private section with a private thread.

Hi Adamus,

What you could do is to use this free web service to create your own forum without needing any technical background. I have my own forum that i share with friends and colleges only since many years. You can even select your own language.

For the same reasons that anymeeting, Gmail, hotmail or any other free services are doing it. I have had a private forum using the french version of this service at Créer un forum and have never had any problem or lost anything. I use this free service for my needs and find it very convenient.

OK! Some slightly miscalculated internet business model - I can't see how they would make money out of me or my data. Thanks for pointing it out.
