sside maurice - Didn't read the whole thread. This may have already been mentioned.

The site gets a lot of shit for taking threads started by others and turning them into UG Blog threads/posts. I'm not going to criticize that because I understand why you do it, but you really should have a competent person writing these.

Most UG Blog posts initially contain glaring errors. Sometimes the errors are not corrected. It's so bad that it's become a running joke on the forums. An average poster on this site is a better writer. It can't be that hard to find a competent writer, because you almost never see this sort of thing at other major MMA sites.

We added spell check to the editor, and that has cut down on errors dramatically.

I'm just curious if any of this stuff is actually going to be worked on, or if it's just an outlet for us to post what we would LIKE to have added/fixed to make us feel better. 

 

As stated before, there are plenty of things that Kirik and team were made aware of for years that were never fixed.

Please stop reporting bullshit like this from MMA Manifesto. I don't care if there's an "estimates" caveat, they use horribly stupid methodology wherein they take the last reported salary figure from a commission that reports salaries even if it's five fights ago and uses that as the estimate. It's embarassing bullshit.

 

Other stuff:

-Preview button for blue namer posts

-Mud namers being able to edit their posts without everything reverting to straight html for an html input, leaving a confusing mess if you don't know what you're looking at.

-Blue namers being able to post in a field that doesn't erase everything because you accidentally hit the back arrow key, or limit you to one "undo" command. Not nullifying auto-spellcheck would also be nice.

-Bold and italics in the phone app (I'm probably one of the few people that'd use that much though).

If an MMA news-worthy thread is posted by a UG'r and the UG picks it up for their MMA news page, the UG admin. should reward UG'r with Vote Up's (say 25?).

Standup29 - What I would really like is a seperate forum for all the whining about promotions (ratings or which one sucks), fighter pay, dana/bjorn, watered down cards, fight pass and monopolies. It gets really old when you log in and there is almost 0 discussion of actual fights, fighters and upcoming events (other than the card sucks and not worth watching). I joined the UG to talk about fights and the fighters. If there was a seperate forum dedicated to that, I would spend more time on here. I know I'm not the only one.

Going to keep bumping this until Kirik notices it and says he loves the idea and wants to implement this above all others because he thinks it would make this site better due to members being more able to talk about what this site was intended for since the beginning of time. Phone Post 3.0
To Kirik:

See above. Love it. Implement it. Tons of fucks given! ;) Phone Post 3.0

Do away with the whole voting system here. It's really worthless and doesn't work as intended. People vote others down based on disagreeing or disliking their opinion. It's a silly system here based on the maturity level of the angry kids that post on the UG.

This. 

And on another note, I've been locked out of my account since the Mental hack, I just got on this morning after 13 emails and two weeks to the site admin... Jason and Chris tried to help but it was frustratin. 

ALso, everytime I load the uG forum page, there is another 'ghost' page/links that I have to click behind really fast or else it will take me to 'forum suggestions' It's weird

IMO, scrapping this forum software and get onto a professional platform is the best thing to do moving forward.

Pilot201 - Kirik, I will always be grateful for you and your staff creating this page so many years ago. I truly appreciate it, and most of the quality members on here. My only idea is to allow either mod, or thread creator to remove pics/gifs/vids posted to a a thread he or she created if the offending post is against forum rules, rather than freezing, deleting or moving the thread to NSFW. I for one try not to create too many threads with the same content, mainly hottie threads. I've managed to keep one particular thread going without it being a problem. However, prior to this one blues would post pics that are not sfw and then the thread gets sunk. Most OP's typically try to obey the rules but can't be responsible for those that intentionally post violating the rules. Only to have their thread sunk. Can this be arranged? Or freeze the thread till offending posts are deleted then unfreeze? Phone Post 3.0

Thank you for the feedback. What you describe is what is supposed to happen. I think the person who most often fails to follow the rules is me, so I'll stop :-)

No real complaints, 95% seem to be involving the app that i don't use.

Can i do a self-ban for like a week? For when i start compulsively checking the forums on long winter nights.

Email me Kirik@MMA.tv from you log in email and I can freeze account.

................hey yo - On a serious note though and feel free to ignore this despite the amount of money I've poured into this site....

When there's a problem with the site which there often is; it's quite a slap in the face that the answer is

"Der what browser are you using?"

1. Fuck you
2. Whether you are playing dumb or are actually aware of this problem, stop turning it on the user. Its YOUR site that has problem after problem. Yeah, maybe you are trying to help but you act as if its the user and not the site.
3. Realize that though this is an MMA site, a lot of us aren't really here for that and therefore don't like being ignored or having our subforums clogged up with shit that we don't care about. Whether it be two scrubs fighting in some bingo hall in front of 12 people or all the panhandling that you not only allow, but encourage.

Go ahead and ban me though, I'll chalk it up as a problem with my browser and not your negligence or appreciation for contributors who aren't MMA fans.

Derrr what browser you using? There's a glitch in the site? No way!

"Merry Christmas Fight Fans. The hell with the rest of you, but please buy a Fight Groupies Tshirt" Phone Post 3.0

I can't follow this, despite reading it several times. Identifying the platform and browser is the first step in any fix, obviously, so I am missing what you want?

i don't know if this has been said or not, but when you guys make big decisions that impact the site, let us know.

when you start deleting lloyd irvin, and dana's mom threads, or just start deleting posts with GIFS, it's ridiculous that you don't let everyone know that you are doing it and why. i mean it would be so much easier if there was a little transparancy.

You are demanding that people talk about "actual fights, fighters and upcoming events" but at least at first glance, it is not at all clear that you post leans more that way than what the average UGer posts.

Pilot201 - seriously, take note kids. What website owner do you know to be this awesome?

Not to be a d*ck, but a website owner who wants to keep a premium membership service going? It would be one thing if it were just a totally-free membership and ads 100% supported this website.

There was a website security breach two years ago, where my financial information could have been compromised. None of us were alerted at all. I'm willing to give this place one last chance, just because of all the cool people here. I don't think any of this is "awesome". This is sorely needed.
Your financial information couldn't have been compromised, because they don't have your financial information. Phone Post 3.0

yep, and this information was provided to all at the start of the issue.

and that shows where a MAJOR issue is - in this day and age, it really shouldnt matter what browser youa re using. That is an issue that went out of date about ten years ago


Browser specific issues on the Net went out a decade ago. Good to know.

Throwin'Knuckles - Can we get an instructional on posting pics and videos. With detailed instructions... I finally went pro and I've tried it all the ways I can come up with. Very frustrating . I just gave up on it. It sucks cause I paid my dues. Please Kirik

To post images, copy and image on the Net (has to be hosted, so copying from your hard drive wont work)/

To post a video, when you reply or post initially there are buttons for Standard and Video. Click Video, and then enter the embed code where it says Embed.
