All I'm trying to say is that perhaps the MMA playground site should incorporate more features into the website. It'll get more people interested in it if it had more things to do. Maybe we need a feature that, at the end of the year, whoever has the most hot bouts wins a badge. Also, there are plenty of users on this site that like to harass newer members and cause a mob mentality in the comments, which isn't okay. Just because you don't agree with something doesn't mean you need an admin to flag it.

Flagged!












Just kidding. I love the idea for the HB badge! Would enjoy underdog bonus stats too!

A HB badge won't help much but there are already plans for improvements. Will it get done? Who knows. But it's planned.

I don't understand what you're getting at about harassing new members, though. When did this happen? This community is incredibly welcoming to new members as long as they don't start mouthing off bullshit. *cough* kingsmasher *cough*

What plans did they come up with? Personally, I just think they should maybe have a thread where you can come up with newer ideas to keep the website from getting terribly stale.

This conversation again...we did this Last week with the thread "why" about Rabi and Fleek leaving the site and followed it up with a pity part for a pg "regular" who is actually probably a good dude, but mainly just a pain in the ass.
Get with DTM, or purchase the site is what I think it comes down to...DTM is basically the only programmer the site has ever had and the owner isn't going to invest in the site from what I understand. I don't care if I have only 50 friends, so long as they're actually friends then who cares.So we are down by 10K members, so what...less people posting, less assholes to deal with...I'll take one PJM member over all ten thousand sherdoggers anyday!

Well said jae >>> I'm with you on this....with all the crying and complaining on this wonderful site is starting to sound like Wand Fight Team and Team Blackhouse.....Waaaaaaa!!!

With the government shutdown in full-effect, I will personally add 'Mail Man' to my resume and hand deliver jumbo boxes of Kleenex and diapers to all the babies bitching about the 'updates' and blah, blah, blah....start applauding what the site has to offer instead of what it lacks.....ya got that??

Ha! You're such a dick bro!!
They aren't that bad yet but I do think these open threads of negativity can be more harmful than helpful. If this site really needs to add ten thousand plus members the main thing that will help is recruitment. All of us joined without all the fancy apps, and could care less about badges. The podcast while cool is just another one of those things, shit even my beloved sidegames can shit the bed...the community is what its all about. Chael leaves the PG, hippysmacker bounces, Budge or JakeWalters leaves and we have serious problems...so many badasses I didn't mention is what makes this site what it is. Real help comes in helping the programmers, mods, and recruitment.

No other site has Chael_Sonnen posting as a regular.


Maybe if CS wears a PG shirt after he beats rashad that'll boost the numbers.






I always thought DTM was the owner.

I think it'd be cool to have an '07 badge. It's really cool to see people stick around for that long. 7 years!
