Question and Answer board

A new feature has been added to the site!

Many users often feel intimated or are unsure of exactly how or where to ask a question. This feature was created with that in mind, to encourage these users to participate!

In the coming days, the forum home page will add the "Ask a question" button and the "Question & Answer board" listing. Using them is quite simple:

Step 1: Ask a question.

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


Step 2: Fill in the fields. The site will automatically do the rest in the background.

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


Step 3: Someone else answers the question, and as you view the thread you can select the post as an Answer. You can select more than one answer, so if three different users posted three helpful answers, you can select Answer for each of their posts. You can only select Answer once per user, though, so for instance if one user posts three times, you can only select one post as the answer.

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


After you select a post as an Answer, it will show up differently for all users, like so:

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


That user will also receive credit for answering the question. The forum will keep track of how many questions each user has answered, and will display that information in their profile:

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


The question (and how many answers) will also then be updated on the forum home page, and shown in the Question and Answer board listing.

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.

Error

@Big Mike,

There is an error here.
If you post a question and get an error message stating that the title is too long, you correct it, make the post, but the post will not be a question, i.e. it will not be visible among the questions on the main page.

Instead, it will be visible among the other threads as a regular thread.

This is the reason I have made a second thread with the corrected, shortened title (and with the same content) here: https://futures.io/brokers-data-feeds/7992-what-reasons-using-separate-data-feed-instead-using-your-brokers.html
so please delete the earlier post here: https://futures.io/brokers-data-feeds/7991-what-reasons-using-separate-data-feed-instead-using-your-brokers.html

(and migrate posts to the other thread if there is any)


Also, Id like to know if there is a way to post a question (showing up on the question board on the main page) from the forum pages, i.e. creating a new thread showing up on the question board, or posting such a question is only possible via the main page of futures.io (formerly BMT)?


Thanks,
Arpad

Arpad,

The title should be short -- just a few words -- I am not sure what length is giving you an error but you are the first person to ever report a problem, so I am assuming it was pretty long.

The Question Board is primarily for new users that are not accustomed to forum software. For other users, just use the regular New Thread buttons. The Question Board should only be used for simple Question and Answer threads, which is what we get 95% of the time because most of the people using it are "newer" traders or newer members on the forum.

It should not be used for normal discussions because it is designed so that each post can be selected as an "answer", which is not what you would want in a regular discussion thread.

Suggestion

It would be an improvement if a CLOSED thread will be automatically removed from the QUESTION BOX. Then active questions could stay longer in it.

You are correct, unfortunately I am not sure how soon I can get to that change. But I will keep it in mind.

@Big Mike

I've lost the Traders Edge section of the Main Page. Tried Internet Explorer as well thinking it could be a problem with Chrome. But, IE has the same problem.

Any idea what might be going on.

Thanks,
Mike Winfrey

There was some type of error. I tested and couldn't find the source of the problem, but it is working again for now. I have been up all night and a long day yesterday, it will have to wait until I sleep to look into it further.

If more problems arise get ahold of @sam028.

Track Back

@Big Mike,

Noticed there was a website under Trackbacks; What is Trackbacks? What does already pinged mean? Its a real website. I did a search on futures.io (formerly BMT) for Trackbacks but could not find anything.

Thanks!
Robert

I think a trackback is simply anywhere on the net that links to a specific thread. It's a feature from vbulletin

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.
