Since I navigate mostly via the 'latest postings' window, 2 small improvements imho would be:

1. The date ( only the day is sufficient, like '18-04') of the posting
2. Put more history ( eg last 3 or 7 days) in this window, with perhaps the possibility to 'scroll

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

Currently, you can follow a thread. Can you follow a user? There are many posters whose posts I always open, but I have to scan for them.

If following a member is not currently available, it would be a good addition. (If it is, I would like to find out how )

Thanks.

Bob.

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.

The upper left corner of a post says when the post was posted--"1 hour ago" for example. However, it is not exact enough to determine when the post was made. So if I look on a thread hours later and see that someone made an insightful market post "3 hours ago," it's tough for me to see what they were seeing at that time, as the +/- may be as much as 30 minutes or so. So if I could select whether to see "3 hours ago" or whether to see "11:32:17", this would be very nice.

This is a mod to change it to relative time up until it is 2 days old, at which time the absolute time shows.

It was supposed to be that the tooltip would show the absolute time if the displayed text showed the relative time, but the developer never got it right, and I have a huge folder of about 30 vbulletin projects I paid for but never deployed due to lack of time and the constant battle of getting them right/performance/security etc.

Anyway, I'll fix it for futures.io (formerly BMT) 5.0.

I used to be able to see who had visited my threads. There was a list below of all the visitors. I'd like that back.

It was a massive performance drain. Especially for popular threads with thousands of readers daily.

I will see if it can come back in a better way on the new system.

It still needs a fix size chat window so it won't encroach the next window.

a quick fix, switch to chat room that doesn't have long url fixes the problem.
