The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Same here.

Thanks for reporting @xplorer. Please help with this:

Are you able to reproduce this on-demand/at will? If yes, I'd like you to do a test for me:

1. Click New Posts from top.
2. Confirm problem exists, you are seeing threads you read already marked as "NEW", but that have not had new posts made within 1 day.
3. Important: Don't click on the thread. Do not open the thread.

I need you to send a screenshot of this, so I can see exact threads and then I will track down the thread ID and also look at your user ID and compare the activity to see what the two database tables are showing.

Please make sure you don't visit the thread in question that shows NEW, just use your best guess/memory to ensure that in fact you did read it already since the last post was made, and that the last post is >1 day ago.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Thank you @TopGunNote.

Try it right now please.

Also, I am going to re-embed your screencast images using the screencast bbcode to ensure that is working as expected below:

Mike

Yes whatever you "fixed" allowed me to post attachments to another thread. Problem seems to be resolved.

I'll attach another screenshot to this message to confirm.

Nope. Selected the file, clicked Upload, got message "Upload of file failed."

FYI, file attachment upload working now. This gave me the upload failed error before:

I am getting an odd variant of this. I clicked on the New button on New Posts and, in some cases, landed on posts I have already viewed, but in other cases did not.

I'll see if I can import a screen image of one of them:

Nope. Selected the file, clicked Upload, got message "Upload of file failed."

Url of this page (the one where the New button got me to an older, already-read post): https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/46839-salao-s-journal-10.html#post721603

Insert Link worked.

-----------------

OK, tried another New button, got correctly to the latest, and unread, post on this one.

Screen image test: same "Upload of file failed" error.

Url of this page (the one where the New button worked): https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/37351-gruttepier-s-trading-journal-getting-profitable-167.html#post722568

Insert Link worked here, too.

------------------

One last thing, Mike. As @ratfink said, "I'll assume FIO is a work in progress for now. Just get well and slow down Mike!"

We appreciate your work, and I'm sure you will get everything fixed, but perfectionism kills. Overwork will not help you, and we can stand a few bumps in the road during this huge transition, which has gone very well considering the magnitude of a total change to new servers, new hosting company and new server configuration.

Get well, stay well, and do what you can, but no more. It will all work out in the end.

Bob.

Hi @bobwest, and everyone:

I'm feeling great. Sure it's been a hectic week with the migration, but this needed to happen and will be the right platform moving us forward to all the next new things and improvements.

While it's true that FIO is always a work-in-progress, it's never meant to be a "beta test" for our users. When there is something to beta, I do it separately and invite people to test. It's never my intention to subject the entire member community to a "beta" or non-production ready/capable server or setup. So, I apologize to everyone that there has been some downtime here and there this week as we get things sorted out.

Unfortunately, in this particular case, due to the complexity of the shift -- there were simply too many variables to properly test everything. At some point I had to just move the site, and then fix whatever was broken. That point was yesterday

I did choose Friday as it's the slowest, as are the weekends, to try to minimize disruption.

I will share some new stuff in my main life thread later today on a more personal level:

Known issue: live update is broken in some cases where edits are performed causing an infinite refresh loop of that specific post. Case in point post # 722616 -- to be used as example and fixed later.

Awesome, thank you @bobwest. And if something this serious happens again, please tag me/mention me on Slack so I can get an alert on my phone.

I'm still not sure why it broke because there was no error message, so something to keep an eye on.

I am looking into this now, probably needs a no-cache exclusion to the query. Will get back to you.

OK @bobwest and @ratink and others having the New Posts problem.

I just added a few no cache exclusions to our reverse SQL proxy, please tell me if it fixes the problem, and please report any other strange behavior regarding anything to do with searches -- as this was a very complex edit.

Please continue to report any/all problems, everyone!

Thank you,
Mike
