Hey @Big Mike,

I notice that when we click on an image to enlarge it, it is contained within the browser window even if we click to pop it out. In addition to this, the screen dims.

I checked in the user control panel area but didn't see a way to change this behaviour. The only reason I mention it is because there are certain situations where it would be helpful to either have the attachment open in a separate window or be movable outside of the existing browser window, such as while reading @Pa Dax's excellent journal where he describes his trades bar by bar while looking at the chart posted:

An example

For the same reason, it would help to not have the main browser window dim while viewing the attachment instead of having to go back and forth, closing the attachment, reading more and then reopening it.

Hope this makes sense... it's not a deal breaker, but thought I would mention it.

Thanks
Shane

Right-click and hit "open image in new tab".

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.

Apologies for the last 30 minutes of downtime. Something caused the database to crash all three nodes. Will need to investigate.

Not that it's important but if you put a list inside some formatting syntax, the list ignores the formatting in some cases.

For example
  • This isn't bold
  • Or italicized
  • BUT it is underlined !
But this is all three!

Glad to hear you're not always checking your stats....

@Big Mike has noted issues with the forum reputation script recently. He's mentioned it in connection with Market Wizards ("red coats") -- it seems that the reputations can reset to zero when the script is run (I believe it runs daily), and then resets to the correct value the next time it is run for that user.

I suspect that your issue may be the same thing, and that it's just more noticeable when a red coat suddenly goes back to yellow (Elite). It seems that these have so far self-corrected with the next run of the script. Currently this is not the top priority, but it is not being ignored either:

So truth is, I am using a bash script to do this and it just needs to be re-written in PHP so I can better control & log what is happening on a per-user basis, to narrow down why the math is resulting in zero somewhere (a divide by 0 error probably). The logging and looping is harder in bash for this.

But, right now I really need to spend time converting old webinars to HTML5 instead of this. So I hope all wizards bear with me on this and their fluctuation in status back and forth until we can solve it. Bear with me guys!

...

As soon as I get the webinars converted, I'll come back to this and re-write the script and solve it. Your continued support and understanding during this time is appreciated!

Mike

Bob.

Edit: I have noticed that the red coat issue does fix itself automatically. If it doesn't do the same in your case, then you should report the fact. If it does, then it's the same script issue and will be fixed in order of its priority.

Your reputation is currently reporting as 1600, but you don't qualify for Market Wizard because you are not quite a member for a full year yet. If you are being promoted to Market Wizard, then demoted later, its probably a bug in the script where it momentarily says you qualify then later realizes you don't 100% due to the time factor.

Try putting the formatting within each list item.

Results in:

  • This isn't bold
  • Or italicized
  • BUT it is underlined !
