IMHO, any jump-to-page links (section with Page x of y 1 2 3 > Last) would be much easier to use (less mouse aiming) if there were like Yahoo's - the entire box with page number is a link rather than just text contained in it. See Yahoo's navigation bar at the bottom: https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=big+mike+trading+forum

What do you guys think?

P.S. Keep them coming.

There are limitations that prevent this right now, it is something I've had on the list for a couple years.

Just wondering how complicated it is to make the video available in the HTML5 (or whatever) format instead of flash. As adobe is no longer supporting android market, I could not watch the recorded webinar(Elite circle) on my tablet. I can only those posted on Ytube.

It would be really convenient if I could watch the (Elite circle only) video on my tablet. Just wondering whether you have any plan to change the video format.

This has been covered many times in various threads. I am doing what I can as soon as I can do it.

@Big Mike

It appears that flash video could be played in android using a flash enable browser "flash fox browser. I can watch all the elite video using my android tablet.

I suggest a slight modification to the posting methods in the forums.

Much like reddit where folks can either post a new topic in a forum or 'reply to' a particular topic which would show as indented to give a better visual feel.

I also suggest that the forums are then loaded with headers only and only show the bulk of content of the last post in each topic.

The greatest improvement in my opinion would be in the heavily used forums like the Free indicator thread.

This might also help on bandwidth at the increased cost of server side processing.

Then again futures.io (formerly BMT) ain't too broke so there might be minimal return on investment.
