Summary: Profile names with erotic, fetishist, escort or illegal content or allusion are no longer allowed.
This change in the Terms of Service has been prompted by a noticeable increase in dodgy profile names.
The related entry in the Suggestion Box (titled Keywords for username rejection) has a perfect 5.0 score average.
Why are these profile names bad?
I want to keep the site fighting-related. All those profile names detract from the site's original purpose.
How does this affect you?
If your profile name isn't FrotCumEscort or something like that, you are not affected at all.
If you happen to have one of these dodgy names, you are still fine.
The new rule is not retroactive, it only affects profiles registered after the 19th of May.
However, I would like to respectfully ask you to change your name to something else.
You can do so, free of charge, by opening a support request here.
If you see a new profile with a bad profile name, you may report it here.
Please only do so for profiles registered after the 19th of May.
Arranging meetings can sometimes take a bit of doing.
You have to find a place that both parties can reach. You have to arrange a time that fits you both. You have to make sure that you are both on the same page on all the particulars.
It gets more complicated when more people are attending, and even more so when you have to set up more than one meeting, juggling all the details of each in your head.
Sure, we have the site messages, and you can view your entire dialog with a person.
There is the user calendars that you can maintain and check.
And on the other end of the spectrum are the fighting events that are designed for sending an open invitation to all site members.
Enter the new Meetings Module.
It is designed to keep all the information and comments related to a meeting in one place,
all the while allowing you to choose a time and place that fits everyone.
It is my hope that this new module will make your fight meetings easier to arrange!
Starting a meeting is simple:
- Either go to the meetings page and click the "new meeting" link on the top of the page.
- Or visit one of the member profiles, and choose the "invite to a meeting" option.
Once the organization of a meeting has begun, you can propose dates and locations, invite new participants, add photos and other information, and so forth.
And on the day of the meeting, all participants will receive a reminder. Just to be sure.
In other news: I am still busy collecting feedback on the video service.
There is one bug in the code that causes the audio and video to go out of synch sometimes.
I hope to track that one down soon.
There's been a number of small changes and fixes:
- There is a new progress bar then you are uploading larger photos or videos.
- It is now possible to disable message notification e-mails, newsletters etc. simply by following a link in such e-mails. (They can be re-enabled any time on the Administration page.
- I am trying to migrate the site to the latest version of Google Maps. (The previous version of the API will be discontinued in May this year.)
- Basque language has been added to the list of languages that you can select.
- Lots of small bugfixes and enhancements.
First of all, I have a New Old Idea: MeetFighters T-Shirts.
This has been suggested before, but up until now I haven't considered it seriously.
Now I do. I have a few designs in mind, here is one draft:
Yes, I know the ❤ (heart) is corny and dated. This is just work in progress, OK?
I'm going to come up with some new ones, this is just a "working draft". I will also make several colors available. Now the new question is:
Would you buy MeetFighters apparel?
Select as many as you want. (Do not combine the "Yes" and "No").
This poll was started on 2/03/2013.
- Yes, I would buy a T-shirt (basic, slim fit, tank top, long sleeve etc. size M - XXXL) for €25-30.
- Yes, I would buy a hoodie or sweat shirt for €35-40
- Yes, I would buy a mug or a baseball cap for €15.
- Yes, I would buy something else (like iPhone cover, drawstring bag, etc.)

Costs are approximate, I am still looking for a good print-on-demand service.
The prices do not include shipping, which could cost between €2 and €8 depending on location and number of items ordered.
T-Shirts and hoodies will be printed with a flock printing technology, which guarantees good colors that will not fade after 100 washes.
In other news, the poll on MeetFighters video uploads is now closed and the results are in! The question was:
Would you upload your private videos to MeetFighters?
| || Yes I would || No I would not || Only watching |
| Number of votes || 552 || 159 || 786|
| % of votes || 36% || 10% || 52%|
| Weighted % || 38% || 13% || 47%|
The weighted percentage represents the individual voters multiplied by the number of their past opponents. (This is the metric that I tend to trust the most.)
Some guys have expressed concern in their comments that the videos would interfere with the operation of the site.
I would like to ask them to assume that I can handle the technical challenges associated with videos.
At the risk of sounding conceited, I am pointing out the fact that I managed to keep this site together with an increasing feature set, a growing membership and several upgrades over the past 4 years.
I am more concerned with the social ecosystem of meetfighters and how videos would affect our members.
One legitimate concern that came to my mind is that the private videos on this site could attract people who are not interested in fighting, just want to watch some vids.
(Granted, youtube is a more straightforward alternative for them. Still.)
What I see here is that the majority would like to upload or watch videos.
This is cool, and I will start implementing the necessary infrastructure.
It is going to take me a while, so do not expect it deployed in a few days!
I will also monitor the performance of the video feature closely.
If it ends up being too much load on the servers, I might end up scrapping the whole thing. We'll see how it goes!
It's been a while since the last site update, but that does not mean what I haven't been busy working on MeetFighters! Let's see what's been going on.
I've been thinking about adding video streaming to the site. It would work similar to the picture gallery: you could upload your private videos, and share it with other site members. So, the question about that is:
Would you upload your private videos to MeetFighters?

The new site design garnered mostly positive feedback. Thanks everyone who participated in fine-tuning the site's look and feel, I got a bunch of useful ideas and helpful feedback. I tried to incorporate most of them into the design. I am much happier with this one than the previous one (which I now call "Orange Gym"), but if you prefer that one, you can use if by selecting it on the Administration page.
The site now uses the CloudFlare Content Delivery Network for distributing photos and other static page content. CloudFlare operates 23 data centers across the globe, and will be helping your web browser render our web pages faster. What this means for you is that the site will feel a bit more responsive, especially if you are located in Asia or Australia, abd a more modest speedup in North America. It will also lighten the load on our main server. This is a big change in how our site is operating, so there might be some snags. I'll fix these as quick as I find them.
There is a Testimonials page for your positive feedback. So far, there's two, and a lot of crickets chirping. :( If you have 5 minutes and want to spend it making me feel better about the site, give it a go.
Also, the MeetFighters Matchmaker is here for your singing and matchmaking needs. It's one of those awesome-useless features (like the Who Fought Whom page); if it makes you smile for 5 seconds, it was worth it.

Summary: There is a new site design. If you want to keep using the previous one, select it on your Administration page.
Unless you have just joined or are using a braille reader, you must have noticed that our favorite website has some new clothes.
I was personally unhappy with how the previous design (the one I now call "Orange Gym") turned out. Those of you who have been with us for some time might have come to believe that I can make a website work in terms of functionality, but my visual web design skills are somewhat... lacking. (Yes, that is a nice way of putting that.) I started out with some good ideas and best intentions, then started to tweak it, and experiment, and in the end I could never make it look "right".
So this time, I had some help: I bought a professional website template, and carefully tweaked it to fit this site. It wasn't easy, but I am much happier with the end results than I was with the last one. I call the new design "Black Streamlined" because it is black and it is streamlined. (Could it be that I seriously lack in imagination?) Anyway, if you somehow liked the older design better, or have a low tolerance for change, you can have it back. Go to your Administration page, scroll down and find a dropdown box next to "Site layout". Choose "Orange Gym", save, and you'll be good to go. Easy-peasy!
As a lark, I also retrofitted the original "AllFighters" design to the site. Those of you who have been around long enough to remember it might get a rush of nostalgia. :)
Obviously the new design will have some rough edges, but I didn't want to wait any longer before I
inflicted it upon everyone deployed it. There is a lively discussion going on about said rough edges in the MeetFighters idea box. Join us there if you find something that looks odd or you have your two cents to share.
Where do we go from here?
I have some plans for 2013. These include:
- A dark text on light background version of the new design (I might end up calling that "Light Streamlined". Maybe not, though.)
- A Match Invite system.
- Continue to serve you the best wrestling website ever!! :)
That's all for today,
– Admin out.
