Fair play I thought everyone was off that now, I prefer The Armbar, like Axe said, more of a family feel to it, easier interface, etc. I understand you're just throwing it out their as an option but yesterday was a rare occurance, if we get another admin sorted then that won't be happening again. I know you didn't mean any disrespect to Ging in regards to the predictor, but yeah like Axe said, Ging puts a lot of time, money and effort into it. I understand where you're coming from but I just think the majority of people on here, myself included, are just happy with things on here.


    It's all good - the MMA Playground predictions game is a lot more organised and better run than mine so I don't feel insulted or anything. I wish I had better internet skills so I could make it a whole lot easier and more interesting Embarassed

    I would put my hand up to be a mod but I don't think I would have the technical skills required unless it was really easy. The advantage I would have is that I am around 12 hours ahead of you guys so can monitor the site while you guys sleep.

    I genuinely think the job you do with the prediciton league is top class! I wouldn't change anything about it, and you're respected by everyone on here by taking the time out to do it. If your happy doing it then we are

    You are too modest I tried running it on the 606 and mine was shocking in comparison so I know what work you must put in mate

    I'd be happy with you as a mod no doubt

    I too have the same problem KalDog, few of my mates watch the UFC as they're mainly boxing fans, and have a problem with the UFC!! Evil or Very Mad

    simplest answer to forum raids it to make it so that new members have to be approved by a moderator before they can post.

    and yes, thats how they do it at KTT Embarassed

    Short answer NO!!! if you read any of my posts on this topic it's quite clear that I'm not. Ging is the man

    In relation to Shane o mac he's on a board of International sports management now and has nothing to do with wrestling. The firm represents no ither than ernie els and Rory mcilroy, hence his presence there yesterday.

    I visit other sites, but this is the only one I post or comment on, like a few have said before, this is almost like a family, going back to old 606 days.

    We all, I think, enjoy the freedom on here, but I love the idea that new members need to be approved, have no problems with additional mods either, as I don't think there's anyone that would abuse that power.

    For me, no Armbar = No MMA chat.

    MMAPlayground is rubbish for discussion. You can't swear or embed videos and for some reason it won't let me use paragraphs.

    I'm still going to make predictions on there. Half the 606 camp may have buggered off, but there are over four and a half thousand other members who play the UFC league and seven hundred odd who play the secondary league. I'm 76th and Top 50 is my aim for the UFC league and I'm 8th and few points off the top of the secondary, so I'm still in the hunt for that $50!

    There is no point in folding the armbar just because of some defective non-people trying to feel important by being knob heads on the internet.

    I don't post as often as perhaps I should but I like being a part of a smaller mma community where your input is actually considered.

    There isn't many good MMA forums left TBH The Junkie Forums were good a few years back now they have gone the way of Sherdog which is a shame don't get me wrong there are still many good posters and articles on both sites sadly the amount of Trolls and Black Belt Keyboard warriors seem to out number them by some distance.

    That's disgraceful saying Bisping is a dick is fair enough what's wrong with that, Come on..........

    when UFC tried to flog a $10 or $20 PPV showing GSPs 7 non-UFC fights i made a thread on sherdog with youtube videos of all 7 of those fights embedded.

    and got dubbed.

    shows what you get for trying to save fellow MMA fans money and stick it to the man!! Rolling Eyes
