hi folks - here something new like mentioned in the last futures.io (formerly BMT)-changelog.

The Quick Summary Post

This is an example of how we like to use the Quick Summary (comes up automaticaly as the second post in every thread) in the future!

all attachements are collected + linked in the Quick Summary Post with the "permalink of the post" - it brings you directly to the post the indicator / stuff is putted in.

so if a new indicator or template is posted in the thread - please try to add also a link in the Quick Summary-section.

this way everyone should be able to find the needed / related indicators + files superfast.
this will be a big help for all users.

Quick Summary is created and edited by users like you...
>>> Add FAQ's, Links and other Relevant Information by clicking the edit button in the lower right hand corner of this message.

here we go - i choosed the Perry-thread as example - have a look at this :

Is there a reason some of the RECENT threads don't seem to have the 'quick summary?'

This one here doesn't seem to have it in the second post, and was made pretty recently.

Some new sections of the forum don't have them. I'll correct that, but there is no way to add a quick summary to an existing thread.

Mike, how do you use that "shout-out" feature where if you reference someone's name, it shows up as a hyperlink, and will show up in their 'notifications?' I thought typing the name would do it automatically, but there must be something else?

I tried those 'mention' tags, but that doesn't seem to be it.

-------EDIT---------
Feel free to delete my post, I should have posted it somewhere else. BUt it looks like it was in fact the "Mention" tag.

Hmm, that's kind of weird...I refreshed the page several times, and now the Edit button is back again...
