What email client?

Did the old ones used to work? I literally only changed to a new png file, nothing else. It sounds more like your client is blocking it.

My email software was blocking your banner image. I told it to allow it and now it works. I must have told it to allow your old banner sometime in the past.

+1 T-shirt & mouse pads

First of all - very well done on the name change!

I would definitely buy a coffee mug (or two).

How about mouse pads?? I'd likely get a couple of those.

-harvester

I'd definitely wear a (quality) T-shirt, hat and/or could use a cool branded/trading-related mouse pad or two.

@Big Mike,

How do you pronounce the new name?

1. "Futures dot I O"?

2. "Futures I O"?

3. "Futures"?


"Futures dot I O" does have a nice ring to it, but as with all sudden massive changes, it'll take some time to get used to. BMT had a close knit community feel, like everyone is involved, heck even the owner posts regularly. "Futures dot I O" sounds super generic and lacks the community vibe, but I believe with proper branding and effort, the name will equate and possibly surpass BMT in the near future.

Looking forward to the future!

I've just been saying "futures io" as the brand (without the dot). I also own the domain futuresio.com incase someone misunderstands.

Opinion of name change


IMO, er..., this community could be called 'Toadies Trades', and it wouldn't make a difference. What matters is this community of traders who are awesome-helpful, going out of their way, in many many cases to make others feel welcomed and appreciated. That's what really matters - not the name.
