Renamed "VIP Member" to "Elite Member".

This is just something I've been meaning to do for a while. All the Elite Members have probably already read my sticky post where I describe the story behind "The Elite Circle" and what it means to me. For those who haven't donated and can't read the story, I'll just say that I want to keep "The Elite Circle" alive and prospering.

I've added a new subforum under The Elite Circle named "Elite Group Trading Methods". This was inspired by a discussion I had with cunparis.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


I've described the purpose of the forum here. I look forward to your participation to make this a popular new subforum!

Skin 2.0


I just put the new Skin for the site up. I spent the majority of today working on it, so I'm several days ahead of schedule with it.

I'm still getting used to the colors even though I've been using it as my primary futures.io (formerly BMT) skin for a week now. I think that's normal. I spent 8 hours a day 7 days a week with the old colors, it takes some time to adjust.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the new skin. It is far from perfect, but this has a much better base I can build on whereas the other one didn't.

Thanks, I'm aware of this issue and working on resolving it, the rouge image is causing me some grief. I'll deal with it tomorrow.

There seems to be a bug with the Quick Summary feature. Some users are unable to Edit the post to add their own thoughts.

I'm working with the developer to fix it, it should be resolved in a day or so. If you see a thread where Post #2 is a Quick Summary, and yet you do not have an Edit button, please send me a PM and let me know so I can troubleshoot more.

Mike,

Sorry if I missed it on the new skin, but is there a way to go straight to the first new post in a thread from the last time we logged in? This feature was there in the last version and was really helpful.

Thanks.

I preferred yellow indication whether there are some unread posts in the thread as in the new version I can hardly notice the difference between blue and grey:
