NotImpressedByYourScreenName -  ^^^^I can't quite believe a mod said these 3 things in the same post:
- Non US users make up 5% of mma.tv user base
- mma.tv would like to cater for these users
- These users should stay the fuck away from mma.tv for 2 out of 7 days of the week, or nearly 30% of the time

Jason, you understand that some of these overseas users are paid members right? Not to mention that I'm confident that some of your advertisers specifically wish to target these users so they may not be thrilled with you telling them to stay away for nearly one third of the week just so you can put obvious spoilers in your headline.

Maybe I'm wrong but I highly doubt that anyone who has a financial interest in this site / organization would make the post that you did... Phone Post

I am really amazed that anyone would have an issue with the result not being in the title, i so did not expect the back lash the OP has copped and the arguments that have followed, and especially suprised that Jason would tell people not to visit the site that i assume pays him for his work,

I could completley understand if there was just a "results" page but it is a "news" site so it covers much more than just results and i for one, and i don't seem to be alone like to check the mobile app every now and again for the news stories like fight anouncments and such

I think what happens is that many times threads like this come off as complaints, where in a face to face conversation they would probably be a simple discussion (agreement or not). With the exception of a few, I feel like most people are just expressing what they think is a simple problem that could be resolved. It is difficult to read what someone is tying to express though, and because of that I understand why people defend both ideas. The thread has gone on way too long and there isn't much left to say. Everything being said, the only way to avoid it for now is to stay away, but there is another option. Phone Post

Every time this topic comes up I add my $.02 which is this.

 

A) I completely agree that I see absolutely no reason to include spoilers directly in thread titles, period.  To the many points that have been made in here, it does not effect the conversation.  By all means talk about it, just don't put it in the goddamned title.  I genuinely do not understand the need/want/desire for this...besides to be a douche, of course.

 

B) Every time this topic comes up the vast and overwhelming majority say STFU and stay the fuck off the forum!  In more, or less, intelligent ways.

crossfire -  A humble suggestion would be that the app starts in the "forum mode" or if you could choose how it started News , Forum , Fighter search and so on. Phone Post

or if you could choose how it started News , Forum , Fighter search and so on. Phone Post

^now this is a good suggestion. Bravo.

I agree with this too but at the risk of appearing stubborn, wouldn't that require code work for the App and therefore be a lot harder than just avoiding putting obvious spoilers in the title?

Just saying... Phone Post

Well now, that's where I bow out of this conversation and just point a finger at the app creator.

I always laugh at people who get upset when they come on a MMA board, and thinking that MMA things are not going to get spoiled for them.

I feel no sympathy what so ever for those people.

Those guys are smart. Coding and scripting take brains, obviously. I like where this thread is going now. Good suggestions. There is a middle ground where everyone can be happy. Not sure what it is yet, but I know it is there.

Guys that do it for a living are crazy fast at it too. I'm not saying it is worth there time to do so, but it can probably be done with relative ease. I am scripting in UnrealScript right now for class, and one guy in our group is overseeing everything we do for the game we are making because he knows what he is doing. A lot of times I will get the code done about 99% of the way and things will work, and he will jump in and make it more efficient just by re-writing my logic to be less strenuous on the Unreal Engine. He can do what I did in 5 or 6 hours in about 1. The funny thing is, he is a game designer (as am I, (but better at the art side) and I'm new to Uscript since about 6 weeks ago), but people that are good at coding immediately pick up the syntax of different languages. I bet a coding solution wouldn't be extremely hard for the UG techs.

I feel like this thread went way better than it could have, and for the most part people made valid arguments for their side. Phone Post

NotImpressedByYourScreenName - It official, this thread has exhausted me lol

Waiting for the next bright spark to come along with "if you don't wanna know the results don't go on the UG" like they're the first person to suggest it...and then finish with "I have no sympathy" so they can feel like a legit badass.

Ah, good times.... Phone Post

All the effort and time that OP (and some other people) has put in this thread is wasted and pointless.
 
Regardless of what OP says not everyone agrees with this view regarding this issue.
 
More importantly, not all the UG members read this or are even aware of it.
 
So this is pointless.

crossfire -  Why are you avoiding my questions ?

1: is it necessary to have the result in the title ?

2: Would mma.tv have more or less users using the forum if they didn't risk getting the results of the TUF fights as soon as you start the app ? Phone Post

Because I just told you to read through the thread and you'll find the answers yourself.

Not going to repeat myself over and over because you refuse to read and comprehend what we're telling you.

Ok this is pointless , I'm not saying that I'm right but in my eyes it would be nicer if people could come here without getting unnecessary info thrown in their faces if its easy to avoid and other users don't get affected by it.
Guess we have to agree on disagreeing. Phone Post

I don't believe it's the minority. I would like to know if it is or not, and I stated earlier that if the masses believe people should stay away than that's fine, but I find it hard to believe that people like spoilers. Phone Post
