As some of you have noticed various parts of the site have been getting updated. Following is a brief rundown in case you haven't noticed or used any of these yet. Feedbag, bugs, and other suggestions are welcome.

- The Avatar Bets feature has finally been debugged and now appears under the "Quick Links" menu. This page will also show your avatar bet history and record with the latter also appearing on your profile.

- The "Team Roster" page in your Fight Camp now shows what percentage complete a user's picks are for the next event.

- Featherweight and bantamweight fighter rankings are now available to be ranked in the My Fighter Rankings page; corresponding results are now displayed on the website's main Fighter Rankings page.

- Coming soon (hopefully) we're also planning an updated (slightly relaxed) set of forum rules, a website design update, T-shirts worth wearing, a blog worth reading, and more.

Keep 'em comin'

Don't have time to ponder at the moment, but something that has bugged me for quite some time...the mouse-over for your accolades (when in the forums) extends too far over to the right and prevents you from being able to click a link when it it located directly next to the accolades.

Absolutely. I'm about to get a whole lot more annoying when events are approaching...

Appreciate all the work you guys are doing. I think of The Playground as a second home, considering all the time I spend on it.

For sure. I'm interested to see what these new t-shirts look like. More than likely I'll be purchasing one.

I'm liking what I'm hearing. Especially the part about the shirts. I might have to get me one and spread the Gospel according to MMAPLAYGROUND Like the guys said, this is a second home to a lot of us, so anything to support the movement

I had mentioned something like a "my favorite threads" to keep track of threads that you want to keep posting on that aren't on Today's Topics and that way you don't have to search for them.

Idk if it's possibly, but just a thought. I can always favorite the thread on the web browser.

it would be nice to subscribe w/out getting the emails everytime someone posted in the thread

maybe being able to prop a thread. lots of times an article is a great read but i dont want to post about it. it would be a way to let others know that a thread w/ more props than others is worth the read, even if it's lacking in replies

That would be cool! Perhaps a notification similar to the one that pops up when a user has private mail. Instead of taking you to your mailbox, the notification could take you to the thread that has been replied to.

I don't post as many videos as I used to, so I don't remember all of the issues, but there are a few. I think the youtube option no longer populates the thumbnail automatically. I've just been using "can be viewed on some other video site" option for quite some time. I think one of the options is broke too. I just can't remember which one.

When logged in, you can view a page for your overall game history. When you look at another profile, I don't believe you can see the same screen, and it would be awesome if you could.

I love the game history. I think it could be tweaked just a bit to take it to the next level. All I would really do would be to add an event record section. Then all of a users game stats are right there. You could see I went 7-5 with 55 points and a loss of however much money (close to $700) on UFN 25. Then you could track the stats of a user for every event, and their overall record, more easily. The breakdown at the top of each season could show your record for that season, as well as final point score, season rank, and final bankroll and wager ranking. Then there could still be links to the financial history and picks history, event breakdowns, etc....

Would it be possible to bring back the player-vs-player wager system for use only within fight camps?

I've been a fan of the website for a while but recently I've had less time to be on my laptop etc. Fortunatley I am in possesion of an iPhone which means i am able to read posts but I am never able to reply to posts made on the needs feed or forums.

My issue is that I am able to create new topics and reply to post's in my fight camp but yet I am unable to reply or create a topic in the main forum or send private messages.

I am wondering whether this is an error that just I have or whether other people have tried. Or even if you guys have considered making an app. I'm a premium member so I know I for one would be willing to pay for it. Or whether the site could go mobile in some way.

I'm also wondering if this would promote the site as there are more ways to access the site.

How about another forum section is put up, in either the community or off topic?

The Forum should be entitled Side Games (of course code of conduct would apply) but like it would just be easier to see theres a new post on MMA general and not be like, oh i wonder what someones said and it be an update on a sidegame. Theres a few side games that are always being run, such as the draft project, fantasy drafts, sports surivior, horror tournaments, survivor seasons, Rabis fantasy leagues, why can't we make a forum for them all?

Id like to see something more for the premium members. Maybe a seperate forum that would get people interested to see what goes on in there.

Also this is a personal request, the resuming of trash talking between fight camps in fight camp central

I get that as well, I just minimize the page and am able to click on the links

oh, also is there a feature when someone quotes you instead of rechecking the threads you posted in, there is a message that gets sent directly to your "My Private Mailbox" that either is a direct link to the exact quote.

It was a feature in season 1 where two players could wager fantasy money on which fighter they thought was going to win. There were odds ranges also, If a fighter was considered a strong favorite, you had to bet at least 2:1, but you could go as high as 6:1. If a fighter was a heavy favorite, you had to wager at least 3:1, but could go as high as 10:1. If a fight had no strong or heavy favorite, you could wager from 1:1 to 3:1. If you and another picked the same fighter to win, but thought he was going to win in different rounds, the range was 1:1 to 3:1.

I just got an ipod touch and tried to post on the main forums at work, but I get some kind of error. But it will let me post in the fight camps from my itouch at work. Just thought that was odd.

One thing id like to see is an instant reply, meaning you dont have to take the time to go up and click on "post reply" there is a box at the bottom to just reply and send. Seems small, but saves some time.

The o.e change I would like to see is the color of the forums pages and the links to the threads changed from blue to grey or some other color that matches the new logo. Pretty small but the contrast between the blue and the grey and red just looks off

and the blue is a bit harder to read the closer it gets to the new logo.

How about a multi-quote function? Many times I like to multiquote but instead I end up responding to only one poster.

Secondly, from the picks page, you have to navigate backward to go into another section. Can we set it up where we can go from the picks page straight to any other sections of the site? - edited- nevermind, you guys already did that.

Third, I would suggest the Bet and Picks page be linked together. When you enter the picks page, you can also bring up the bet page and vice-versa. It would make it easier to make picks and wagers.

Fourth, I would like an online playground trivial game like MMA Jeopardy to be available for settling any unresolved issues between members. Two members who simply cannot find a medium in their discussion will battle it out on MMA Jeopardy. And only a mod or admin can allow access to the game and the winner gets an accolade too.

How do I multi-quote? How do I quote you and another poster without having to copy and paste and or using word document. Multi-quoting in playground is too time consuming.

Regarding Jeopardy, there will be a time limit for each response.
