This name change has been years in the making. Frankly, I waited too long. We outgrew our old moniker long ago, and the silly name has held us back more than it has helped us.

Many sleepless nights I would think of new names, only for them to fall out of favor with me shortly thereafter. But the idea of a name change has been something that I've wanted to do for a very long time.

The reason the name change is important is really about our perception. Our forum is made up of excellent members, with excellent content. But our name did not accurately reflect the professionalism of the site. This changes today.

I selected "futures.io" after a great deal of consideration and exhaustive research. I am very happy pleased with the name. I trust that given some time to adjust, you will be too.

Feedback on the name and the direction?

Mike

I think this is exactly the point. The name "Big Mike's (Anything)" is not necessarily silly, but it does not show professionalism. It emphasizes this guy "Big Mike" more than its content. It was more appropriate at one time, when it was tiny.

Personally, I got used to the old name very quickly, based on the excellent content and the extremely strong moderation, which does not tolerate the BS Mike has mentioned. But as something that is being presented to a (hopefully) professional audience, it is reasonable to think that the original name, which was simple and informal, might not have the appeal that the site deserves. Although I got used to it quickly, it did seem strange at first. There's no point in raising that barrier in the first place.

This is a really strong, professional site. It houses and presents many views from a membership that, in many cases, has great depth. It is a very good place for experienced and beginning traders to go to. So I'm happy that @Big Mike wanted to go beyond the early name, and was willing to move beyond branding it with his own name and name it instead for what the majority of its users care about.

I guess that's a rave.

Bob.

For tapatalk users, the easiest way to update the app is to browse to https://futures.io in your browser on your device, then click the 'Open in app' button at the top of the page on the Tapatalk banner.

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.

Great job, Mike. I really like the new logo, too!

Admittedly, I am still a little disappointed you didn't go for "Big Miguel Trading" kidding, of course.

Congrats...

Yes.

It actually kept coming up as I refreshed the page, with a message below it to change social media settings to the new site. (I kept hitting refresh, and then eventually it was ready and I got in.)

At some point early on I also got a login request, not sure of the sequence, but it made sense at the time. Login is now set, as usual. Access is now working as expected.

Bob.
