Greetings and welcome Pride and UFC MMA fans!

MMAPlayground.com's first fight season is about to begin! This inaugural season will kick off with UFC 67 and will span through the next 9 Pride or UFC events after that. For our first season here the winner will receive $500 (real dollars, not fantasy wager dollars!) as a reward for their superior knowledge of MMA combatants. The game is easy to play and free. You've got nothing to lose!

If you're wondering how the game is played, then make sure to read the rules and FAQ's. Also, any feedback is welcome to as we strive to improve the site to be able to move it out of beta status.

So let the games begin!

PS - As site traffic and user numbers increase we'll be looking for some level-headed forum moderators along with a few talented writers who are devoted MMA fans to post news and updates from the rapidly evolving world of popular MMA. If you think you fit the bill for either of these and want to help out, then drop me a line via the Private Mail system here on the site.

$500 real dollars. I'll add some verbiage to clear that up :)

Well now I've seen it all. Now I understand what all my friends are talking about with their Fantasy Football and Baseball leagues.

What does level headed mean?

It means when something makes you mad, you don't just punch it right away, dude.

Omega, did you create a camp at signup? Should we all get in one monolithic one?

awww....I really liked my team name...I guess I will play ball though. You have to invite me, I think - that link is just my camp control panel for me. (I've quit the one I made on signup)

LOL, I did send you an invite. There are some gliches in the programs.

What team name did you want?

I don't see a pending invite in the raw database at the moment. As fight camp leader you can invite someone manually via the fight camp control panel or you can click the link in their profile below their username that will say "Send Invitation To Join Your Fight Camp". It very well could be a programming "oopsy" or maybe a typo on the name invite? Hopefully the fact that the header says "Beta 1.0" will help cover my a$$ a little bit on this one

Try inviting him again and let me know what happens via a PM if ya don't mind. The invite will show up in his "My Fight Camp" page too with an option for "Accept" or "Decline".

Some time tonight or tomorrow we'll have a fight camp directory page set up for everyone to view the list of camps on the site. Any other feedback, use the feedback form

Admin, I think he sent it before I dissolved the camp I made during my account creation.

I got his second invite.

Ahh that might explain it; can't invite someone who's already in a camp. If you do happen to come accross a real glitch, bug, or something you'd like to see done differently on the site just let us know.
