Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members.

The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors Ė all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

How often are you guys using the "List Attachments" feature within threads?

Mike

Never knew it existed if that helps to prioritize it!

I am trying to determine the priority of re-creating this on the new framework.

Mike

I use it a lot. But sometimes when using it on a very long thread (like the "want your ninja indicator created free", "gomi" threads) it becomes overwhelming because there is no categories so we have to search page by page.

Cheers
Nikki

IPS is delaying the release of IPB 4.1 for a couple more weeks. I'm looking at adding another developer to the project to help speed up our conversion process.

I was hoping to be further along, but you know how it goes. Right now focus is turning towards themes.

Guys, I need your input. If you have another forum of any kind (any topic) and any platform (vbulletin, xf, ipb, whatever) and you like the way it looks visually, its colors, its design, layout, etc, please post it below.

I'm not asking about features or functionality. I'm asking solely for visual theme design choices that you like. This is important, I want to get some of your feedback and incorporate it into my own.

Mike

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.

On the new framework, we are building a custom section for webinars from the ground-up.

Here is our current page:
https://futures.io/webinars/

With the new design, we first need to establish what elements to capture. Each webinar has these key elements:

- Title of webinar
- Description
- Date and Time
- Author(s) and/or Vendor(s) presenting
- Thumbnail image
- Keywords/categories
- Discussion thread URL
- Presenter URL(s)

We will also capture things like likes and views. We will be using our own internal HTML5 video player and not using YouTube, so we can control access to Elite content better.

The idea is to display all this data in a better format than we do currently. And to make the list sortable in several ways, including:

- Sort by date
- Sort by author
- Sort by keywords/categories

And in addition to being sortable, it also needs to be searchable. This way you can search within the webinar archive by:

- Search by author
- Search by keywords/categories
- Search by match in description
- Search by match in title

Our list is currently formatted like so:

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


I'm currently thinking that the format is somewhat similar, but that each webinar 'block' will contain the information I mentioned above. The long description would be truncated, but expandable with a click. Instead of 4 thumbnails wide, we may get only 1 or 2.

Have I missed anything important? Is there some sort of sort or search option that you guys need that I've not considered?

Please let me know, because I am finalizing the requirements and sending them to the developer this weekend.

I'd like to see a discussion on what should be implemented in the new framework. Keep in mind fewer options are better for our implementation.

So before it was mentioned that Thanks would be renamed to Like on FIO.

Not everyone agreed.

The argument was you can thank or appreciate a post without liking it, the belief being that Like means you agree.

I don't always have much of an opinion either way on things that are more appearance, but I must say that I am alarmed by the Sad and Angry, and not too thrilled with most of the rest.

1. I think that clicking either Sad or, especially, Angry, as a response to a post, is really an encouragement to bad beahviour, as in following up with an angry or sad response post against the poster who you just slammed. It also could easily lead to flame wars, as people who felt insulted replied in kind. I think the potential for these is close to horrifying. (They are sort of "Don't Like" or "You Suck" icons. )

2. The rest are kind of over-cutesy, at least to me. Not alarming, just slightly dumb. (Sorry, but that's how they look to me.) I guess that I would say that if we are looking for professionalism, these don't spell that to me.

3. I was one of the ones who didn't weigh in in favor of "Like" to replace "Thanks." They do mean something different, in some cases anyway. However, I could live with Like, since the essential meaning is that you are positive about the post. I still prefer Thanks, but no big deal.

4. Having many variations on approving the post, such as Love, HaHa, Yay and Wow, aren't absolutely terrible, but I don't see that much point. Also, I think that the names, and certainly the icons, are not that professional either. Those particular icons look cartoonish, in fact.

5. Less is more. Simple is better.

All that said, I suppose that if Facebook adopts them, they will at least become widely recognized, and perhaps not seem so dumb as I currently think them.

On the other hand, I don't have a Facebook account and it is likely that many other people in the futures game don't either, which is the professionalism issue again. In the same line of thinking, Facebook doesn't spell "serious" or "business" to me. (It may be getting that way. That's not something I'm up on that well.)

If this were being proposed in a business context, which I guess it is, I would have the question of whether you want a business look or a fun look. (And if "fun," how grown-up do you want your fun to look?)

Kind of a negative response from me altogether, and I do realize that some of it may just be me being stuffy about change. Oh, well.

Bob.

Just showing what Facebook is doing -- those aren't mine. I want to avoid negative responses as well, but just like on Facebook, a lot of members here want to express dislike/disagreement over a post. Looking for best way to handle.
