Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

-- Big Mike

The name will be tweaked to something else that better represents there user is an expert on the site. That was the original intent.

Users can define a custom title, now and in the future

Maybe just "Site Expert"?

Might work.

Or something like it.

Bob.

How about "Forum Wizard", "Forum Legendary".

Wizard and legendary are words of the trading motif, and appropriate for adaptive use in a trading forum.

On the new framework, Thanks will be renamed to Like.

Sent from my phone

I lament changing "Thanks" to "Like".

"Thanks" is polite, fosters community, implies gratitude, and implicitly likes a post.

"Like" is self serving. One cannot express thanks with like.

I have always thought the "Thanks" button as one of the distinguishing features of futures.io (formerly BMT) that separate it from other forums. It is a catalyst for posting and sets an inviting tone.

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.
6)

I like the thumbs up on Tapatalk and Pandora. (I suppose a thumbs down might be too direct even for this forum.)

Thinking about this after reading it again, I think I agree. Not a big point, but when you say "Thanks," it is more personal. So, for what it's worth, put me in the Thanks column.

I agree Bob... it is more personal. That could be the reason why most people don't click the Thanks button. There are a ton of posts I would click the Like button for but far fewer that I would thank someone for.

LOL, well, that didn't occur to me....

I guess that I can see how "Like" may mean that you "like" something less than "Thanks," in a way.

I guess it's hard to know how different people will take the same thing, so there may be no real best answer. I do think that most people would not use "Like," just as most do not use "Thanks," either. Or post, for that matter.

I'll still vote in favor of Thanks, but I'll be doing the same number of Likes as Thanks, if that's how it ends up.

Thanks (no joke) for a different way to look at it.

Bob.

This is the issue, trying to find a balance between encouraging participation and the meaning of giving thanks vs liking something.

The one fact that is indisputable is this: the more people receive positive feedback, be it thanks or likes, the more they continue to participate -- which is good for everyone. Whereas on the other end, someone that receives no feedback (no thanks, no likes) feels like no one is reading --- even though hundreds likely are.

If you are truly looking to replace "thanks" and "like" consider a term like "helped" as in, "It helped me"
This would make the participant think twice whether this post has helped them or not.
