So is this site going to end the legacy of the Sherdog forum? Hopefully the forums on this site stay more professional with none of that National Enquirer type crap!

I doubt it, Sherdog puts out awesome radio broadcasts, has the ultimate MMA research tool in fight finder, and has so many connections to get news stories first in the MMA world... nevermind the fact that Sherdog has literally 40-50x more members. There's lots of places to go for MMA fans on the net now; we're just hoping to capture a small portion of the pie, the gaming portion If the forums here wind up growing nicely it's just a nice bonus to have on top of it all. With this site not even being 2 weeks old yet though I'm hesitant to call it a "force" in the MMA scene on the net just yet... but maybe some day!

Well I think you're off to a great start. Especially with all of the interactivity on this site. I would only suggest you implement strict moderation of the forums so that they don't become a circus like at Sherdog.
Good job and good luck for the future!

2 weeks and 1500+ members already, i'd say you guys are off to a really good start.

This is a tough nut to crack; NO ONE likes to be censored and told what to say and what not to say. Finding the balance between a laissez faire attitude and knowing if/when to put the smack down is a touchy and fine line. We can just hope for the best and that the members who check the box saying "I agree to the rules of the site" actually follow the rules, specifically the "forum code of conduct" area of them However, that being said, the mods aren't going to sit around and let this place turn into a flame-zone either, even if it winds up pissing some people off.

Sher dog used to be a good source for mma news but lately with all the trolling it's terrible And I second the mod's don't let it go as far as the crap on sherdog

Once a site has so many members it's hard to keep an eye on every single thing going on. There's some angry comments and/or trolling going on there at times, but any really large forum has stuff like that (over 80k registered users on their forums). The sherdog forums also have pro fighters posting on there from time to time which is another cool thing to add to their already long list of cool things.

There's no way in hell this site takes over SD. Jeff himself posted a link to this site. The game is insanely good, but the forum lack.... a lot.

Exactly. Alot of us came here to form a "camp." The game on this site is pretty fun though.

The certain ambience and loving community of Sherdog OT cannot be recreated. Unless we cloned Shido and then just got a bunch of pictures of hit chicks.

Other than that though, it cannot be imitatable.

No way Sherdog is one of the best MMA sites on the net. The forums might not be very good, but all the other things it has like the fight finder, radio broadcasts, and up-to-date news keep it at the top.

I agree. That's why I mentioned .net instead of .com. The forum sucks, but the other parts are great! I will continue to visit the .com for the latest news, but I won't be visiting the .net forums anymore. Hopefully the forums here won't have all of the teenagers logging in. Actually if this site eventually forces a paid membership then things will remain professional around here.

Not all teens are bad! I'm only 16, and i don't think i'm a stupid poster by anymeans :P and having to pay for this would suck! i can't get a paypal account!

sherdog is like the new york of mma : lots of people, lots of cool shit, lots of bullshit, dirty yet has a certain charm

this place is like vegas : everyone from all over the mma world come here on vacation as tourists, gambling, camps are like hotels. if we can post porn then that would be the escort service....

I think sherdog is great , except for the forums. I'm glad they have no intention of letting this place degenerate into a place full of childish name calling.

sherdog.com and sherdog.net BIG difference.

Sherdog.com=Bad
Sherdog.net=Good

I use to visit the forum but anytime I posted anything. The mods would jump all over me, and if you look at my post, they were relevent to the conversation at hand. I don't like trolling, and I don't allow trolling on the forum that I mod on. With Sherdog.com, if you have the white belt, they make it seem that you have no clue as to what your talking about. I think the reason this site has grown so much is because of the fantasy aspect of the site, it's just fun.

Everyone knows Sherdog is the biggest MMA site on the net, who would be the runner-up?

All I can say is: The "wah .net wah" crowd who have since left, have made it a much better place for us still there.

Thanks for your efforts in making Sherdog better for us.

I'm suprised how easy it has been to moderate so far, hopefully if we can create a forum with a good foundation of posters and maintain the credibility of the main MMA forums then who knows where this place will be in 6 months to a years time.

A fun bunch of people who would always complain about the forums being crap, yet they continued to post about the decline, making useless threads and generally being on a twenty four hour, seven day a week peroid.

Good times, they were the emo of the Sherdog world.

I love the site, something new for people who have never played a game like this before and the set-up is awesome. Lots of interactivity and pretty easy to get started I must say. With that said I don't think they'll "end" Sherdog, as that site is also getting bigger by the day.
