Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 100,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. 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. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors Ė all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community.  It's free and simple.

Just wanted to make a correction post that @sam028 was missing from my initial post, because of his special classification usergroup in the system. Sorry Sam! He is indeed one of the original founding members, and I've updated my post to correct the oversight.

Sorry, wasn't intentional. I spent some time investigating and finally figured it out. You were excluded from the report because the query only looked at Elite Members specifically via the subscription log, as it was the easiest way to sort by date (Elite date).

For some reason, you are marked as Elite but don't have a subscription log entry. You joined long ago, maybe there was some technical reason for it. It's been so long I have no clue, but I imagine there is an email chain or private message chain between us from 2009 that probably explains it.

In the end, it means nothing for your account -- just that there isn't a linked database entry for your payment transaction, but the account itself is still Elite. It was just a choice for the way to run the query.

Regardless, thank you for your support and contributions.

Mike

Your reason is the same as above. I am guessing you joined so early that I was manually marking people Elite, prior to it being automated. That was very early on indeed.

I hadn't considered that when I originally wrote the SQL query. I have some other things to work on right now, but I'll try to come back to this a bit later and rewrite the query so that members like yourself aren't excluded.

Thanks Mike,

Just in case it helps you ascertain what happened and therefore who else may have been unintentionally excluded, I received two private messages from you on the 9th November 2009 (I can get you copies if you can't access them) that shows at that time becoming an Elite member was by way of making a donation. In my case via PayPal (one of your 2 PM's confirmed the PayPal receipt).

Thanks again and wishing Futures.io all the best for the next 10!.
