The image cache for posts is now deployed.

What this means is that if you embed an image that is not hosted on futures.io (formerly BMT) or bmcharts, for example imgur or photobucket, that image will now be downloaded and then stored locally on our servers for caching.

On the first request (page load) of a post where an external image is embedded, the system will download the image to our server. This means that the initial view of the post might be a bit slower than normal. But this only happens once, so any single user that browses any thread page will trigger the cache for all images -- in other words, the speed should return to normal over the next several days as all the most popular threads are viewed at least once, causing all images to be cached.

You do not need to do anything special in your post. If you post using an [img] tag linking to an external host provider, it will automatically be cached with no action on your part. This is not optional, we are also making this change to prevent cookie stuffing and prevent nefarious posters from tracking members.

I made some changes to the Promotions tonight (promotion to Market Wizard). It should now correctly apply the display group id (red color username), before it was not always doing this.

Promotions and Demotions (from Market Wizard) are now 100% automatic. Before I had to occasionally manually change the display group id.

Please report any problems.

I received several questions about Market Wizard promotions.

If you go to your profile page by clicking your username or Quick Links - Your Profile, then the Statistics tab, at the bottom you will see your forum reputation score.

Also: "You will reach Market Wizard level once your reputation is equal to about the top 5% of the highest reputation members, and you've been a member for over six months, and have written more than 250 posts."

As of this post, that value is approximately 50 so a forum reputation > 50 = Market Wizard.

The calculations are largely based on how active you are. Not just logging in, but posting. Not just posting, but how many useful posts you right (looking at how many posts vs how many thanks received). Also looking at how many screenshots you post or indicators you post, and how often they are viewed.

Mike,

The "Your Notifications" feature used to have a drop down panel, now it's just linking to the user control panel. Any other way to check the notifications?

I was making some changes to some scripts tonight to make them async non-blocking. I tested it fine with Chrome and could not reproduce your error, but I've put it back to regular calls for now. Please ctrl-f5 and let me know.

OK, I have spent the last few hours seriously minifying the js and css. It was a ton of work...

What this means is I have reduced the number of HTTP requests for every single page load (using a thread page as an example) by 15 requests.

That may not sound like much, but it's over a 15% reduction in total requests per page.

It means 15 less HTTP requests per page load - and even though those pages (js/css) have expire headers and are cached, just the time it takes for your browser to find out whether they are up-to-date or not can be considerable. So now those have all been combined into a single minified file which is also highly compressed.

I have tried to test as much as possible, but this is a major change to the underlying core of the site -- so please report any problems.

After changing "Results To View" it keeps "Loading..." forever using Chrome. No problems when using Firefox.

It's working fine here with Chrome 28.

Please go to that page and press ctrl-f5, then let me know if you can reproduce the problem still.
