The new name sounds great! It encompasses and reflects the overwhelming majority’s interests on the site. More focus towards ‘Futures Trading’ aspects sound like a good idea. All the very best going forward Mike.

Congratulations on an excellent name-change, Mike. The long-term advantages are easy to envisage.
No surprise to see this forum "moving with the times", and updating its name. I've been here only a few months and am far from hyperactive here, but this development (together with excellent moderation here) seems entirely in keeping with the fact that this trading forum's growing and flourishing in both quantity and quality of content at a time when several of its "competitors" (for want of a better word) seem not to be.
Thanks for everything, to the staff and all the regularly contributing members.

Much of my rant is in my trading journal, with the link to the exact entry above, as you can see from reading it I had mixed feelings about the name change. I know that I am resistant to change (not a good thing for a trader to be) and I am working on it.
I couldn't answer the survey about the name change because my initial thought was actually that I hated the Futures.IO name, but that is my initial thought on almost any change. I liked the seamless transition though.
To me however, this site is so much more than FUTURES.IO I guess that is why I didn't like the change initially. We were given three choices. Like / Hate/ No Opinion. Well I guess I bounced between Like and Hate faster than a questionable trade shifts from profit to loss to profit to loss.
And from this post obviously I have an opinion on the change, for that reason I did not answer the poll.
Mike it would be great if your polls had an option for a one sentence answer when we don't think the answers you've given us fit.
Best wishes on the new name. I still love the site!!!
You do great work.
p.s. I guess I just thought Futures.IO was selling this site short (not as in a trading short), there is so much more than Futures here. Maybe Future.IO as in the Future of trading. In a week I am sure that Futures.IO will be second nature to all of us. Thanks again
