Like Aragorn, I too am certainly humbled. And surprised I'm listed. And I'm not even at the bottom!

This is a fantastic site where I've learned much.

Thanks Mike for keeping this place going.

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.

Great forum - where members hold on and the most important - help each other.

Just wondering how many VENDORS "survived" over the years in the forum.
Out there, they come and go like taxis!

Thank you Big Mike for the idea and running this forum tirelessly.

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.

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!.

Update --

Here is the list of the top 100 founding members that were left off the initial list, because they became Elite so early on to support our community that I was manually still approving/modifying each transaction (these days, it's automated). Sorry guys, it was so long ago I had forgotten that was even a thing!

Mike, thank you for this recognition and acknowledgment. It's nice to part of something, and this forum has provided me with insights as to what traders need, want, and require for their success. This forum has become the beating pulse of futures traders worldwide.

I appreciate all your hard work and wish you again the best of health and strength.

Update --

Here is the list of the top 100 founding members that were left off the initial list, because they became Elite so early on to support our community that I was manually still approving/modifying each transaction (these days, it's automated). Sorry guys, it was so long ago I had forgotten that was even a thing!

Thank you Mike for the mention. I've made many friends here over the years and many I am still in touch with. Its here I learned that I didn't know what I didn't know.

I still pop back in once in a while to research a topic or question that has come up.

I wish you many years of health and well being and thanks for creating and maintaining this forum.

Thanks again.

Big THANK YOU to all CODERS who contributed the most to the forum - their skills and time - and for willingness to share their efforts, helping others to convert the ideas into indicators and strategies.
It is hard to mention them all, most of them have earned the Market Wizard title.
This site would have not been attended so frequently if it was not for them.

And for that - BIG THANK YOU again!

Cheers!

Yeah, I actually heard Mike mention that he was going to start a forum before he had even done so.

Haha 10 years later...
I second the idea of a 'where are they now' thread - even one from 5 years later.
May be quite revealing.
I have not been able to find the kind of consistency I had looked for and burnt out ( for various reasons) several years back and let it all go for a while.
I then focused on endeavours that offered a better probability of producing income and concurrent life balance - ie my conventional career.
Now I am looking at semi retirement in about 2 years so with that in mind I am looking at leveraging what I have learned about trading and the markets.
My plan is to trade the higher timeframes (up to weekly where I seem to do my best work) with the majority of my trading funds and the lower timeframes (ie day trading) with a much smaller percentage...unless I can find some consistency there.
I think I have ironed out the well known cognitive biases and the psychological stuff that can ruin trading results and careers. But it sure took some doing. Like I read somewhere in here recently....I am proud I have never blown an account. My risk aversion and management strategies protected me from that. I have had good periods of profitability along the way but nothing too exciting. But has my risk aversion prevented my success in some way?
Next chapter I will be more appropriately funded and know a hell of a lot more than any previous chapter.
Doesnt mean I will kill it though.

Late response, just saw this.

Thanks for reminding me how old I am, and how long I have been around.
