MeetFighters News

Updated Privacy Policy and Map Feature


As part of our efforts to preserve the privacy of our members, the site's Privacy Policy has been updated. Please review it! Ours is a fairly straightforward document, no thick legalese. I would like to take this opportunity to thank grappleruk, Ironbull and our wonderful support team for helping with the initiative!

Additionally, our Terms of Service page has been amended with the following items:

10. You must respect the privacy of other members and never disclose their personal information or correspondence without their express consent.
11. MeetFighters is for private and personal use only. You may not use the site for the purpose of collection or aggregation of data for any reason, be it commercial or non-commercial.

Both changes are going into effect immediately. We strive to make these changes as painless and agreeable as we can. It is our hope that you find the updated Privacy Policy or Terms of Service to be acceptable. However, if you don't then please delete your membership on the Settings page.

Map Feature

As mentioned previously, as part of our privacy initiative, MeetFighters decided to stop using Google Maps for certain features. Work on the new map integration is ongoing; unfortunately replacing a service as huge and comprehensive as Google Maps is not an easy task. If you experience difficulties, please let us know.

Update 3rd July

Big thanks to everyone who commented! On most days our team is dealing with members who have some sort of complaint, so it feels good to get some positive feedback now and then. :)

We have deployed a new version of the "reverse geocoding" (map coordinates to city name) service, this time based on a service called "gisgraphy" instead of OpenStreetMap. Gisgraphy uses multiple data sources, including OpenStreetMap, and hopefully does a better job of finding the right city names and addresses. My preliminary tests show improvements, although not perfection.

@scottimike asked about threats to the site. At present time I am not aware of any big ones. The team behind MeetFighters is always busy providing help and support and improvements to the site, but the foundations are strong. We have a good community here, and ultimately that's all that matters.

Thanks for the ongoing work you are doing , and the main threat still seems from 'opportune' new members?

There no longer seems to be any actual literal link to Admin to communicate directly, just all the FAQ's which explain lots of good things, but if they don't answer everything, or if one has a suggestion, there's no way to directly communicate it.

Shakespeare once wrote something about "kill all lawyers" but he was wrong on this. The overrated hack!

Great additions to the terms and conditions though.

Thanks for protecting us all, and all the hard work that goes on unseen, unremarked and probably woefully unappreciated.
