Welcome to the new Fightlinker.com

Hey, welcome to the new site!

You’ll find most of the same functionality we had on the old site, with the extra bonus that there’s a lot less broken crap that doesn’t work. And speaking of that, please excuse any wonkiness over the next few days as we settle down on our new server.

All user accounts have been carried across – use your old display name as your username. If you had a l33t c_r_a_z_y display name or just can’t remember it, you can enter your email address here and the system will send you your information.

*STAR MEMBERS* If you are having problems accessing your account, email me or create a new account and message me and I will transfer your access across.

 

If you encounter any bugs, post them here. The current buglist is displayed after the jump.

CURRENT BUGS TO BE FIXED:

  1. Imported Fightlinker posts missing paragraph formatting
  2. Podcasts are currently offline
  3. Store is currently empty
  4. AuthorID on farts is missing
  5. Chat refreshes slowly
  6. Chat doesn’t work properly in Opera
  7. width of the website is fine, but you can still scroll right.
  8. main forum page seems to double the amount of topics and posts
  9. Spam filter has not been tested. Please report any spam you see!
  10. single post page looks funky in IE

6.1 UPGRADES:

  1. improved user profile with more fields
  2. lots of theme tweaking (still too sterile)
  3. user icon appears on frontpage in sidebar
  4. star members have star icon in comments/forums
  5. podcast player in sidebar

    I wanna see if the number of comments shows.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    Finally I can log in

  • godzillad says:

    Would I be a bitch by saying I liked the old http://test.fightlinker.com/ design better? :)

  • docsavage says:

    heh fraaaames.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    lol the chat is dead ;(

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    The comment organizing doesn’t seem to be improved. The boxes around it all and the reply buttons on every post suggest that it’d be nested, but everything seems to be flat. I tried replying to myself several times and got stuff even taken out of order. Its like the old site, basically with no direct replies and no order to the convos. Is this intended?

  • Reverend Clint says:

    i like the option to delete or edit

  • fightlinker says:

    It’s not nested out of preference on my part … never liked nested.

    But I’m open to trying nested. Will turn it on now, tell me what you think

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    I think only you mods get the delete buttons of holy truth.

    But the Edit buttons are sweet. At least we’ve got BE beat.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    sweet now i can edit what people say

  • godzillad says:

    Nested is fucking garbage. Bloody Elbow comments are evidence of that. I swear to god it’s off putting.

  • fightlinker says:

    test thread

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    -deleted mysteriously-

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Ok, neat idea but it won’t work with the bloated user sections.

    Any chance to inline them above the post like the old site so they’re not wasting all the space on the side, or is this the final design?

    And I mean this whether you want the comments nested or not.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    I can see what you mean. I guess I’m just stuck in an old mentality from a site called LJ where the community discussions were sweet thanks to the nesting. But they never used the stupid SBnation system. They’d only let shit get about five-to-ten deep and then put in a link to the full thread from that point on.

  • godzillad says:

    I can’t do nested. IMDB switched over to nested as default in 2003 and I’ll never forgive them.

  • fightlinker says:

    This is the ‘stacked’ version. Gonna tweak the css and see what people think.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    BE blows on many levels and trying to read comments is a bitch. trying to find your comments and anything relating is even harder

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    awesome. Floats are a pain in the ass. so post the css if you have any trouble.

  • frickshun says:

    I dont get all the fancy net talk. But I know that I fucking hate the way BE comments are set up……I think I like the old FL just fine. Minus the faggot Canadians & wetbacks.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    I feel dirty saying this, but Rugburn is right.

  • dulljake says:

    Let’s make a comment ladder!

  • Reverend Clint says:

    ladder to hell!

  • fightlinker says:

    ah! I see Hitler fucking Mother Teresa’s ass!

  • scissors61 says:

    You keep your filthy mitts off my correct grammar and spelling, Clint.

  • scissors61 says:

    throw an edit function on this bitch and i’m satisfied. looks good, fellas.
    EDIT: THERE IS AN EDIT FUNCTION! YAYYYYYY. I’ll re-up my paid account in gratitude.

  • Marley Marl says:

    Seems to work quite fine for Safari OSX – the only aesthetic problem is the width of the website is fine, but i am still able to scroll right.

  • fightlinker says:

    Yeah, i haven’t been able to figure that one out. bug added

  • Blackula Jonez says:

    I am finally able to upload an pic and can edit.

    Color me impressed.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    I dunno if this is something temporary or if you flushed everything after last night, but to log in at work I had to have the password reset again. I’m using the same password I’ve always used for this site.

  • subo says:

    This edit thing is going to get us in trouble.

    1. Who loves GSP?
    2-7. I do, a lot!

    Edit 1 to “who loves horse cock”

    Subo loves Dana’s Cock!

  • Reverend Clint says:

    ^I guess you were right

    btw you need an avatar

  • glassjawsh says:

    finally! no more orange mass!!!!!!!

    also are we going to lose all the old comments? or are they getting imported?

  • fightlinker says:

    I promised that we’d get the old old comments back from the old old 2008 fightlinker and good news: we have those back. :-p

    I’m going to try and figure out how to import the comments off the old system, hopefully in faster time. It’s not something we have the resources to pay for, but i’ve made it a point to figure out how to do it

  • Schrute Boxe says:

    I don’t know if its a bug or not but the main forum page seems to double the amount of topics and posts.

    For example, it says the mma-related forum has 2 topics and 22 replies, but really there’s only 1 topic with 11 replies

  • Komodo says:

    Very cool, dudes :)
    Nice clean styling that’s very easy on the eyes. I am totally stoked.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    I just got home and it wouldn’t accept the password I’ve given the system three times now. If I log out, it also won’t recognize my shit and it makes me reset it again. Reset it at home, then have to do it again at work and again now that I’m back home.

  • frickshun says:

    WHERE’S MY FUCKING AVATAR!!!!!

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Ha ha! Rugburn no learn so good.

  • subo says:

    Ok, now the avatar thing works, but it didn’t update until I logged in using Chrome. What the French, toast?

    I can’t wait to get hated on in this new format

  • Grappo says:

    “I can’t wait to get hated on in this new format”

    FUCK YOU!

  • Reverend Clint says:

    might be good to move the shopping cart, i think another jackal mentioned this already. And add more spaces like the one between who’s online and the RSS crap.

  • regtest says:

    Haven’t been able to recreate the icon upload problem

  • epic says:

    Much cleaner. I approve. Good work guys.

    Now just stop these awful popups for members who pay.

  • dulljake says:

    what pop-ups?

  • FiveBoltMain says:

    Are we going to have the feature where you can keep track of the forums that you have posted and see if anyone has commented in them?

  • glassjawsh says:

    spammers in the forums…..

  • agentsmith says:

    @ FiveBoltMain:

    No shit, that was handy as hell.

    Also, forgive my ignorance, but what’s the difference between the “farts” and the regular articles?

  • agentsmith says:

    Another suggestion: there’s not much point to the “reply” buttons if it doesn’t quote the original post you’re replying to.

  • glassjawsh says:

    also that community tab on the old website, the one that listed all the topics and when someone commented last, was helpful when arguing/trolling because you could just go back and see if someone commented, are you bringing that back? or is it just going to be in the forums?

  • Trol says:

    Doesn’t look like your RSS Feed is working.

    It looks like there is info in the RSS feed here:
    http://www.fightlinker.com/rss.xml

    But iGoogle doesn’t like it.

  • subo says:

    Agreed with Five Bolt – I love bringing back ancient threads knowing they’ll show in everyone’s My Forums that commented on that

    ^ Great sentence structure

  • chiggs says:

    Agreed about BE, half the time now you have to go into your control panel an search for any of your posts or any youve been followingl Undecided on the new layout of FL though, time will tell 😀 Coool to see it growing and expanding though!

  • subo says:

    A search for “balls” in the new search engine turns back six pages of results.

    😀

  • chiggs says:

    Hey guys, ya’ll need to brush up on the Geography an switch things in Location. Last time I’ll tell ya’s, Canada/Ontario is NOT apart of the US 😛 Let alone all our Damn cities mofo’s!!! Sheeeeesh :}

  • AcadianBacon says:

    Yup, I really want the “My forums” button back. How am I going to live when I have to search for word association…or last movies you saw, or favourite tv shows? FACK!

  • Subbevil says:

    Holy shit, I can have an avatar! Classy.

  • subo says:

    Wrote a story, posted it, can’t find it. AM I BANNED

  • Tanhauser says:

    Nice work guys. But you should up the limit on avatar sizes. 4’realz .

  • Rxdrug says:

    First time in 6 months I’ve been able to log in. It’s about fucking time.

  • YEAH RIGHT says:

    FBM-Word. Im missing that, that was one of my favorite features.

  • greenseed says:

    id like the name/avatar in the comments to be smaller… theyre bigger tthan most of the comments below them and i find that a little distracting. or have it like old fl with the av/name and then comments to the right not below. otherwise cool stuff guys!

  • regtest says:

    FiveBolt – Yeah, we’re working on making a function that lets you see all the forums and stories with new comments.
    glassjawsh – Thanks, I’ll look for them and see why they’re getting past the bots.

    Added bugs:
    -Spam in comments
    -‘My Forums’ feature
    -Remove reply button from Forums
    -Rss feed isn’t working

  • Márcio says:

    Site looks great, nice job. On a side note when I use IE to visit the site and click to open any article it looks all fucked up, the menu and all the stuff bellow the header aren’t the same as in the main page. When I use firefox it all works fine.

  • YEAH RIGHT says:

    Oh, ps, i really miss the “my forums” or whatever it is called

  • Prince Stellar53 the Impaler says:

    testes 1 2

  • fightlinker says:

    Marcio – thanks for the heads up. Added bug

    -single post page looks funky in IE

  • StinkyBalls says:

    New site is a thumbs up!

  • greenseed says:

    farts dont post on the homepage?

  • fightlinker says:

    Anyone else having issues with the RSS feed? I’m testing it out now and it seems to be working fine

  • JasonRKline says:

    keep up the good work….

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    The RSS feed shows up fine in my reader widget in iGoogle.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    RSS works for me

    some of the comment buttons on the front page are hard to click.

    you need to differentiate the farts from other posts

  • Komodo says:

    The Farts button would look better capitalized.

    What a strange thing to say.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Especially from such a serious Mr Kitty.

  • fightlinker says:

    Thought went into the idea of fart being a lowercase kinda thing, like a typographic indication of their small segmented way.

    But i do agree it’d probably fit better if it was capitalized heh.

    We’re still not on our final stylesheet. Jackal Marley Marl is working on modifying this one so it’s less pocket protector and more 2 THE XTREME RADICAL 😉 By the end the farts will look different from the rest.

    I apoligize that you guys have to see the site’s cock n balls before we put some clothing on it, but it was kinda a mad dash to get off the Titanic that was the last site

  • YEAH RIGHT says:

    Hey, i liked the last site

  • Reverend Clint says:

    make it possible to see who is in the chat on the main page

    my forums is the big one though… and maybe open up how the forums look. it hard to tell when people post new threads

  • Reverend Clint says:

    i commented on the music thingy and so did fivebolt but we are under the latest comment… its in reverse order

  • subo says:

    This site is fine as a motherfucker, but am I the only one that can’t get to the comments for the Wandy/Garv post? I wished to share this http://i35.tinypic.com/2ywcso7.jpg

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    @Subes – you have to click the “link it” link.

  • Marley Marl says:

    Looks like the Link is working Subo, but you can only click like 1px.

    Does anyone know what version of IE is having problems, on my PC IE8 on Windows7 is fine.

  • Deo Wade says:

    Looks good

  • subo says:

    Dude how can you not bring a gif to celebrate

  • DukeOfEarl says:

    New layout looks very good. Congrats on the upgrade.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    DeoWade? I can’t believe you’re making me agree with Subo – A master of his craft needs to clear his throat when he enters the room.

  • maafaka says:

    is that jake who created the new layout?
    …its so dull..

  • Marley Marl says:

    I’m working a new “skin” that should make it look more “hardcore” haha.

  • agentsmith says:

    So I gather all the previous comments are gone forever? Destroyed in the fire?

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Naw, they’ll be brought over. I’m working on import/conversion html issues this weekend for posts, but it’ll also help comments I believe.

    I’m thinking he’ll get a lot back. The hardest problem will be re-mapping users to users.

  • frickshun says:

    deleted comment b/c new site is wonky

  • Reverend Clint says:

    nice to see all the jackal help on here, id help but im more of a hardware man like subo’s mom

  • SHORT_BUS says:

    The new layout is pretty bland.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    i cant make a jackaltv that is on the main page

    oh and the forums section needs a lot of help. its hard to tell when anyone has posted anything new unless its a new topic

  • SHORT_BUS says:

    Can we post inappropriate material in the forums?

  • subo says:

    Radio button at the top is dead?

  • FiveBoltMain says:

    SB, that’s what jackals do best. As long as it’s not racist, we don’t give a rat’s ass.

  • SHORT_BUS says:

    Why isn’t there an option to post pictures directly in the threads? I hate clicking links, risky business.

  • fightlinker says:

    I might give picture posting ability to the star members, but too many rancid cocks and buttholes get posted otherwise.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    plus who wants to scroll through pages of crap, possibly litterally

  • SHORT_BUS says:

    You’ll get higher traffic if you allow everyone to post pics. Limiting posting abilities will only prevent people from staying. I know I won’t invest much time here if all we have is a blank slate and some text.

    As far as lemon party and gaotse type pics, that’s what moderators are for. Let them filter out the dumb shit and ban the people who can’t play by the rules.

    Speaking of rules, might want to post a FAQ/Rules thread.

  • subo says:

    Again, Short Bus, not sure if you’re really getting the whole “Fightlinker ethos” we’re going for here

  • YEAH RIGHT says:

    Yeah, it already feels like fightlinkers blowing up. I dont know if i like that.

  • godzillad says:

    Fuck pictures in the comments. Ever open up a page on BE and get hit with 500 GIFs and “U Mad” pictures? Fuck that shit.

  • SHORT_BUS says:

    Please explain the “Fightlinker ethos”

  • Reverend Clint says:

    i delete shit loads of spam… at least 8 span threads so far

  • fightlinker says:

    I’m trying to set up the Capcha thingy so it stops new users from signing in. Should have the spam situation under control by monday

  • SHORT_BUS says:

    Isn’t free.

    More traffic = banner ads = money = more whores and coke.

  • glassjawsh says:

    ^ less coke whores in the name of less stupidity/dumb cat pictures is a sacrificie we’re willing to let Ryan make

  • Letibleu says:

    uh ohhhhh

  • SHORT_BUS says:

    Should at least have the ability to post pics in the forums.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    enough with the pics… no one but you want them. maybe thumbnails

  • SHORT_BUS says:

    This place is destined for mediocrity then.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    why would not allowing the posting of pic lead to mediocrity? your logic is as stupid as your request.

  • fightlinker says:

    it’s a reasonable request. We might only let star members post pictures tho, to avoid people with new accounts from posting cock n ball pics. It was a serious problem in the old chat.
