I recently put up a thread asking about fixes and improvements you would like to see. The response was overwhelming.

First and foremost, there was a pervasive sense that A. Lots was wrong, and worse, B. that no one was listening. A is bad, and B is way worse.

Everyone here has my sincerest apologies for my lack of attention to your very valid concerns.

Going forward, there will be a thread, this one for now, where you can both suggest improvements and alert us to errors you are having. If it is an error, please let us know what went wrong with as much detail as is available, and as well let us know:

***PLEASE DO THIS UNLIKE THE PEOPLE BELOW WHO DID NOT THANK YOU***

Platform: Smart Phone, Tablet, desk/laptop

Operating System including version

Browser or app, including version.

***PLEASE DO THIS UNLIKE THE PEOPLE BELOW WHO DID NOT THANK YOU***

Your suggestions to date have been aggregated and organized. I can't guarantee that every single one will be done. In fact, I can guarantee that we don't have the resources to do everything that everyone wants to do. But we will over the next weeks and I guess months proceed through the list. We will update this list to let you know what is going on as we progress.

The suggestions you made have been organized into www and app, and into improvements and fixes.

APP IMPROVEMENTS (CONTINUED)

Quote Notifications users would like to be notified when their post is quoted
More Threads users would like to be able to view more threads per forum

Back Button On the android app if im in a thread and accidently hit one of the bottom tab buttons (say the news tab) and then click back on the forum button it won't take me back to where I was in the thread, rather it takes me to the forum selection screen. Pretty sure when I used the app on my iPhone it would take me back to exactly where I was in the thread when switching between tabs.
Forum FAQ A FAQ forum on the app for reoccurring questions. It could have sticky threads like how to post pics, links, rules, etc. make it like a general help board where can request any mod/admin help that mods and admins can check. Anything from name changes to problems with posting to requesting stickies/deletions.

APP IMPROVEMENTS (CONTINUED)

Muli-Task Multi task so it doesnt go to home page if u temporarily leave the app or get a call More OG Forums. (Pretty sure this is apple only)
Tapatalk Users would like forum to be compatible with tapatalk app
Goto Page Users would like button to go to specific page in thread
Sub Forums Users would like to be able to subscribe to or see more sub forums available
Copy Text Pretty sure this is phone specific but users would like to be able to copy text in app to clipboard
Update Main Photo more users would like the splash page image to change more often
Thumbnail Photos too large iPhone he thumbnail pictures on the news section are too big and cover half of the news headline.
Last Page I would like the option to select the "last page" when I'm in my subscriptions rather than just being able to select a thread.
Change text size Some sort of quick toggle on the app to change the text size
Move Buttons On the app, there is a strip of buttons, "news, shop, fighters, events, and forums." These are at the bottom of the screen and are often inadvertently touched while scrolling through posts. Would it be possible to have these buttons moved to the top of the screen?

I've posted it in every thread possible, nobody else has ever mentioned this problem or any poster here even acknowledged that I've said it. This app doesn't multitask 90% of the time for me. I can't leave threads 5 pages in anymore because I just lose the spot and the app restarts. Maybe it's just me, but it drives me nuts Kirik. Thanks for looking into all the other problems though.

That will be added, but what is your phone, and do you have the latest version of the app, and is it the free or the paid one?

Oh awesome. Thank you for the bookmark function, thought that'd be a great idea, Glad to see it come to light

 

Also thank you for the work put into the forum. Know it doesnt mean to much after the changes happened, but do appreciate the hard work. Wouldn't know where else to talk about MMA with other assholes, well, educated assholes.

Problem-any thread that is a poll thread, I can only click and view it if it's on a main page, like page 1, page 2, etc...

If I see the poll/thread in my subscriptions threads, when I click on it from there, I'm redirected to the main page. It's not just for my own poll threads, for any poll thread I've posted in.

 

I use google chrome

pc, windows

Holy crap that's a lot. I'm generally not one to complain about this site, as I enjoy it too much to get mad at the people who run it, but a lot of this stuff would be really cool. It would just make things more convenient and user friendly, which is always a plus.

didnt see this on the list. when i edit a post that has a line break (hit enter on the keyboard), it shows up as the html "</b>" in the edit and posts like crap. only way to edit a post effective with line breaks is to copy the post before you click edit, then paste it into the text box and edit that. its bad.

I'm at the point where I strictly view MMA.tv on my iPhone or kindle fire hdx. So I'd love a comprehensive update to the android app. Plus, why the fuck can't I view my private messages on a paid app? I bought this app twice, one is far superior to the other, but neither give me full functionality.

What's the scam here? I pay you for the app but have to visit your ad-riddled site to really get what I want? Phone Post 3.0

Kirik, I appreciate your taking the time to wade through all that.

Obviously you don't have to make every change that's agreed upon at once, so maybe start with the stuff that's a no-brainer and easiest to implement? Spacing out the changes a little bit would be better easier since it'd make it easier to address specific bugs and also make it easier for posters to adjust to anything new.

I have the newest paid version of the app, and ironically the app closed or "crashes" when I first tried to open this thread.

I would say the app crashes for me about three times daily. Phone Post 3.0

90% of us don't deserve to post on a forum that's run by a guy like k-man. 

Last night the guy posts J-Lau's 1st fight, from what I assume is his personal MMA library, turning my shitty evening into entertaining

And today gives us assurance that he's being as hands on as he can be in the process of improving the app that so many of us feel is unequal in value to the three pidliy dollars it cost. 

Thanks Kirik. 

 

And yeah I am kissing ass. I love this place.
