Hi guys,

Need some help.
For some reason I can't neither view nor download pdf attachments in posts on my android device. It's shown as "broken" icon. Any advise?

Thanks!

Hi guys,



It is my pleasure to announce that @tturner86 and @xplorer are now Super Moderators on futures io. They are now wearing blue for their username



In our nine year history, we've primarily had just myself and @sam028 moderating the site. But I feel it is time to expand that, and @tturner86 and @xplorer are excellent choices that have demonstrated their value to the community.



They will help us deal with spammers even quicker than before, so please continue to hit the "Report Post" feature when you encounter a problem post, so our team can deal with it.



Thank you,

Mike



Makes me happy how FIO is growing.

This is a fantastic addition. @xplorer and @tturner86 I know will both do an incredible job because they already do! What a natural progression this is.

Minor code change to make sure our new moderators don't lose their status nightly when the reputation script runs. Last night @tturner86 notified me that he was back to Market Wizard.

Hopefully I have fixed it so that doesn't happen again.

The email that went out today advising of the Elite offers included an error in the header, displaying $variables instead of actual values. Hopefully I have corrected that so the next email is corrected. I did testing and everything worked, but now I found out there are two different scripts -- one for test emails, one for real emails, so that's why the test worked and real had the variables.

On a side note, the response to today's email has been through the roof so far.

I dont know if it is part of same issue but @NinjaTrader loses their vendor tag everytime they become or drop from wizard status. Have noticed over the years.

Yes it is related but much more difficult to fix, because vendors are not in a unique usergroup like Moderators. And creating a new group is massive amount of work and will break so many things, it isn't worth it.

I've been thinking of a possible workaround solution, I need to give it more thought to see if it will work.

OK, I've deployed a test to see if this is fixed. Let's look at @NinjaTrader specifically, because I just updated their profile to be correctly marked as a vendor again.

Lets see if it gets reset, or is maintained. Crossing fingers.

Once we confirm it's working, I'll need some help from you guys to identify other vendors that were promoted to Market Wizard at some point, which caused them to lose their vendor tag -- so I can re-add it.

Tonight a small but very impactful change was rolled out. This is primarily to benefit our social media, by adding a particularly useful meta tag for our images to be better controlled in social media situations. You should not see any change from the end user perspective, this change is targeting Facebook and Twitter bots.

I am recording this here because the code was very low-level so I want to make sure I haven't broken anything else unexpectedly. Please report any problems, as always.

The only vendor/wizard I know of is @DionysusToast. As of now he doesn't show the vendor tag.
