We've got a couple big milestones coming up. There will be a party and prize giveaways

The first is reaching 100,000 posts. It will probably happen around the very end of March. The second is our two year anniversary in June. 100,000 posts is quite an accomplishment for a forum that is only 21 months old!

I am thinking of giving away some iPad's and a bunch of trading books thru Amazon. I'll post the details as we get closer.

I also wanted to just record that today Feb Tue 2/8 we tied our previous posting record set on January 13th, which is 410 new posts. Yesterday was also the busiest day ever in terms of how many unique registered members logged on to futures.io (formerly BMT) (1,124). futures.io (formerly BMT) also gets about 2,500 unique unregistered people visiting each day, for a total of over 3,500 unique people a day on average.

While I look forward to seeing 500 post days in our near future, I am continually working to make sure futures.io (formerly BMT) maintains its helpful, positive, forward-thinking attitude which makes us a very unique destination for traders on the web. Please also take a minute and thank the Moderators for all the work they do to help me out: @sam028, @max-td, @LukeGeniol. Thx guys!

Mike, gotta say finding this forum was a god send....but it was a bit of a trap as well. What? There are so many free things here that I got lost in the all eye candy at first. It was entirely to easy to holy grail chase on the forum.

BUT it was much better than paying a whole bunch of gurus to do the same thing so I guess its a double edge sword.

I have made some good friends here on the forum and look forward to more.

Thanks so much for the site....

Congrats futures.io (formerly BMT)'ers!

Sometime Wednesday Feb 16th we'll hit 90,000 posts on the forum. Just 10k shy from the big 1-0-0 k, expected sometimes towards the end of March.

I'm trying to think of some creative prizes and how to give them away for the 100k mark, if you have any thoughts let me know.

Right now I am leaning towards another Appreciation Contest for the month of March, which is probably when we'll hit the 100k mark, and kinda rolling it all together into one promotion. Reason behind tying them together is simply that it is the frequent posters that have got us to the 100k mark, so seems reasonable to reward them for this accomplishment. And since I don't want to reward simply based on # of posts per person, the Thanks Contest will reward for the posts that are most meaningful and well received by the futures.io (formerly BMT) members.

Thoughts? Possible prizes for consideration are things like an iPad and anything preferably trading related, like books or e-books for instance.

We will likely hit 100,000 posts this Friday.



I also want to say how proud I am of those posts. They are helpful posts - not posts just for the sake of posting You guys going out of your way to help others, answer questions, and give advice based on your experiences. I am very proud of this fact.

Tuesday 22nd was first day ever we had over 5,000 unique people visit the site in 24 hour period.

The next number I'd like to see broken is our 408 concurrent users online simultaneously, which was set last June during our 1-year birthday celebration and Al Brooks webinar.

I've been here only a few months so still wet behind the ears, but this is a great forum and really has the family feel. Helpful, patient and thoughtful members/posters.

I was never a "forum" person before, though would occasionally look at a few other trading forums but the amount of venting off and angry posts left me cold. futures.io (formerly BMT) is thankfully diffent.

So well done Mike you have made you mark and futures.io (formerly BMT) is the benchmark for others to aim for. Hope the hand gets better soon......Take care

On June 10th, 2011 we reached another milestone -- we turned two years old

Details here on all the celebration, $10,000 of prizes, and etc:


Today we are very close to breaking another milestone, the record number of posts in one day. We need another 30 posts in 2 hours to break the number -- it will be very close or may not happen today. The record is 448 posts from Feb 9th of this year, we're currently at 418 posts today. There are a lot of days up near this number....

Today is the first day we've had over 6,000 people on the site in a 24 hour period:

Users active in the past 24 hours: 6088 (1857 members and 4231 guests)

The large number of guests is interesting, because they aren't really guests (they have accounts). They are members who just didn't sign in, for the most part.

This points out I should try to better educate people that they should be signed in when possible. That way they can enjoy more of the sites features which aren't available to guests.

Are these typically just people who are checking something on a smart phone?

Where you ever thinking about making the site un-viewable until you sign in?

No, only a tiny percentage of people view the site on their phone.

And second point, no, there is already a big banner inviting people to sign up for an account (register). But I am guessing the 4,000 guests yesterday, probably a lot of them mumbled to themselves "I already have an account". Most people are not very technical, so I'll try to think of a better way to make it simpler for them to understand they should sign in.

Sometimes session cookies expire, and you won't automatically be signed in. Another example would be if you switched browsers, installed a new OS, bought a new computer, or run third party software to "clean" your computer. These reasons and more could cause people to not be automatically logged in.

If you want me to be logged in while I browse, you need to turn off that thread tracker thingy.

It is not anyones business that I am browsing a specific thread.

Why is it necessary to be logged in anyway?

Is this going to end up like Trade2Win where I get several spam emails every time that I log in?
(That chased me off in a hurry)


On a technical note, the forum logs me out or drops me when I log in with the "Remember Me" unchecked.

If you want to be invisible, turn on invisible mode in your control panel.

You got spammed on other sites because other sites are overwhelmed with spam bots. I've worked very hard on futures.io (formerly BMT) to ensure that does not happen. If you ever get a spam message, use the report post feature to report it.

It is necessary to be logged in because you can't receive private messages, can't reply to threads, can't show appreciation by saying Thanks to other posters, and of course if you were an Elite Member then you would need to be logged in to access the Elite Only content.

We've got a couple big milestones coming up. There will be a party and prize giveaways

The first is reaching 100,000 posts. It will probably happen around the very end of March. The second is our two year anniversary in June. 100,000 posts is quite an accomplishment for a forum that is only 21 months old!

I am thinking of giving away some iPad's and a bunch of trading books thru Amazon. I'll post the details as we get closer.

I also wanted to just record that today Feb Tue 2/8 we tied our previous posting record set on January 13th, which is 410 new posts. Yesterday was also the busiest day ever in terms of how many unique registered members logged on to futures.io (formerly BMT) (1,124). futures.io (formerly BMT) also gets about 2,500 unique unregistered people visiting each day, for a total of over 3,500 unique people a day on average.

While I look forward to seeing 500 post days in our near future, I am continually working to make sure futures.io (formerly BMT) maintains its helpful, positive, forward-thinking attitude which makes us a very unique destination for traders on the web. Please also take a minute and thank the Moderators for all the work they do to help me out: @sam028, @max-td, @LukeGeniol. Thx guys!

Mike



You celebrated the milestones with giving away a few iPads and forcing your members to pay for what others create and share for free? The indicators can be downloaded only by paid members now? Some celebration I'd say... Congrats!

Congrats



Today we hit 20,000 members. And these are real people We deny over 100 new registrations daily that are flagged as duplicate accounts or spam bots.

We also hit 150,000 posts a couple weeks ago.

I'm very proud of what we've accomplished (unlike some people like the post above this one). I'm proud that the site continues to honor its original goal of "pay it forward", and that we continue to reward those who are the most helpful. And I want to say thank you for helping me make all this possible!

This month we will be giving away a nice 24" Dell 1080p monitor and (9) trading books (your choice) to the Top Ten posters with the most Thanked posts this month, another way of showing our appreciation.

In November, we'll have our annual Thanksgiving Charity Drive so that we can as a group help those who are less fortunate. We'll also start the nomination process for our end of year annual "futures.io (formerly BMT) Best of Trading" awards, always a fun time to decide the best of the best.

In the coming months we have many more contests to announce and many highly respected educators coming on-board -- and I am proud and excited to be able to do it. But that is for another thread...

Thx guys!

Congratulations Big Mike....You and your moderators have done a marvelous job..as well as all those that contribute...this is by far the best trading related site in existance....Keep up the good work....

My focus is on:
1. Avoid the opening chop.

It was 21 months old 1 year ago, so now it is 33 months old. But your message is still correct, the size of this forum is impressive. I have already difficulties of finding some of my own posts....

Trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. You may lose more than your initial investment. All posts are opinions and do not claim to be facts. Please conduct your own due diligence. Use only Risk capital when trading Futures.

That got blown out of the water a couple months ago but I forgot to post about it. The site has seen a tremendous surge in growth this year, there are routinely over 800 people on the site concurrently and the new maximum is 2,203.

Today we hit 300,000 posts. Great job guys, that's a lot of quality content - not "lulz", not fighting, just helpful posts.

Here is the 300,000th post from @plethora:




Looks like we'll also hit 40,000 members in April.

I haven't posted in here in a long while.

But today is January 1 2014, the beginning of a new year, and also a major milestone for futures.io (formerly BMT). We'll hit 50,000 users today. As of this post we're 9 away...



It may not seem like much compared to some other forums, but I know for a fact other forums don't have anywhere near the kinds of protections and restrictions we do that prevent bots from registering. So I trust my numbers and I don't trust theirs
