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.

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.

If this has already been discussed/requested then I can delete this post. I think a useful enhancement would be what I have come across in another forum recently. Sorry, but I can't recall where I saw this, though I might could put in some time looking for it if it's really necessary.

Let's use the "Big Mike in Ecuador" thread as an example. Someone may reply to a post with a lot of pics and quote the original post. This means all the pics/long text are redisplayed in the quoted text and makes reading the reply and thread very cumbersome.

It would be nice if the lengthy quoted text/images could be hidden, providing only a paragraph at the top, with an option to display the remainder of the quoted text/images if the reader chooses to do so.

Already addressed. Did you check out the beta site a couple months ago?

Probably makes them less reliable then.... I would think that the important terms would be in the content of the description or the title.

In any case, I was mistaken in my idea that I've given them a lot of use. My search hits are almost always in the text or the description.

Bob.

Ok, where? What's the verdict?

No. Your reply isn't clear how this relates to my request.

EDIT: I realize you're on your phone, but your response wasn't clear/informative. A simple "we discussed it and we're not doing it or are doing it" is fine.

Yes was on my phone so hard to go into a lot of detail. But basically the answer is: we already implemented that as part of the new site, and was available for you to test on the beta site a couple months back.

I have a suggestion for the new forum that may be of interest for both members and business model.
Some threads such as "Journals" are more personal than general discussion threads or the creator may have a narrow scope of direction that he wants the thread to take. The suggestion is for the creator or thread starter to have some administrative privileges within the thread. Privileges may include editing, deletion and comment, and positioning. This can open up some new forum possibilities. Threads can be more organized and authored as the creator may wish. Threads can become books. Off topic posts can be reigned in. Disagreeable or bothersome posts can be eliminated. I am sure there are many more possibilities that will result in enhanced thread performance. I have not run into any forum that allows this local administrative feature by default, and think that this maybe a draw or kicker for new membership.

I would say this would give the thread starter too much power over other people's posts, especially editing and deleting.

I have been mad enough to want to just zap someone else's post, and the forum was better for me not having that power: I had to answer it. It would also be a disaster if another person's post could be edited, changing his/her meaning.

The ability to put on the ignore list is, effectively, a local ban that can be used to keep someone out of a journal if that is necessary, and that is enough for me.

I would suggest one change, which would be to actually create a local ban, where the thread starter could "ban" someone from his thread, without also losing the ability to read that person's posts anywhere else on the forum.

Reason: there are people who make worthwhile posts elsewhere that the thread starter might not want to miss out on, but perhaps would want to restrict from posting in his thread. Restricting from your thread is a distinct function from never reading their posts anywhere, and probably should not be put together as one action.

Bob.

I second this.

I agree that changing another's post is not a good idea. What I had in mind was additions set in a box below the post. The edit or comment box may contain keywords that the author uses to build an index or table of contents, links, explanation notes etc. The idea is that the thread starter becomes an author with some control over the thread direction and presentation. Not all threads of the forum would have this administrative capability. Posters would be aware that their posts could be manipulated in ways not common in forums. I think the Journal section is a good place to start as it is somewhat an author's domain. I see no problem with deletion in this section, perhaps it can be reversible.

Some of the forum threads are very large and not practical to read but yet contain a vast amount of useful information. Authors might compile that information in a new thread. The new thread can take on a life of it own and revitalize the subject.

Some of these threads may become white papers, mini-books or e-books so good as to warrant a small price to read by non-members. Naturally members read for free, but non-members could be charged a small fee with proceeds shared by FIO and the authors.

I realize that there are some problems with this idea and some checks and balances are required, but the dynamism would place FIO is a new forum category unlike anywhere else.

When I receive an email telling me there is a new post in a subscribed thread it takes 5 to 10 seconds to load. Far longer than any other email I get.

It started when I told my email program to load images in email for futures.io. Before loading images the emails opened quickly.

Didn't have this problem before change to futures.io
