ChatFighters Opens!

Hello!

I'm proud to present to you our new brother site: ChatFighters.

Although it is certainly possible to use MeetFighters for imaginary characters and cyber battles, this is not what the site is designed for. We have all those pesky rules demanding real photos and such. It's a drag.

ChatFighters is all for you, cyber community, the new website is throwin all these rules out the window! The terms of service are hyper simplified, with no picture verification. You are not restricted to just one profile, quite the opposite: you can manage as many cyber profiles as you want with the same registered account. The specialized cyber chat allows you to operate more than one character simultaneously. And when you are done, you can even publish your match directly from the chat with just a few mouse clicks.

ChatFighters.com is a place of fantasy. Here you can create imaginary characters, have epic battles, experience role-playing and meet others with similar interests.

Or just relax and quietly read other members' stories and books.

You are encouraged to open up, explore and share your fantasies. ChatFighters wants to be a worldwide hub for all who love fighting but cannot do this in real.

Check out the member created character descriptions; most of them are very detailed and pretty impressive!

If you like or just being curious about the cyber fighting world, give it a try.

If you happen to post regular cyber blogs on meetfighters, you can keep doing it, but I would be happy if you try and post your blogs also on the story section of the new site.

As usual with us, the site is free and has no advertising AT ALL. Putting your privacy first, we don't use any 3rd party tracking or similar shit to create fingerprints of your web history. Join, chat, read, leave, and hopefully come again.

I worked on ChatFighters for roughly a year. It's been in limited beta for a month now, opening to the public today.

It is still in his baby steps, but I have many plans for it. I'm in contact with the existing cyber community from Yahoo!, helping me in creating this new place! You can join too, and have a strong influence on how this website will develop in the future. New features and requests are mostly community-driven!

This page explains the concept behind it in more details: https://www.chatfighters.com/impressum

Yahoo! Cyber Fight Groups

Hello cyber fight fans,

Some of you might now that Yahoo! is closing down their Groups service on very short notice.

I want to help preserve these communities and their content. Anyone who can post a message to groups such as "Cyber Fight Guys", knows the contact information of the administrators of such groups, or happens to be the administrator of such groups: please leave a comment below or (if you wish to stay private) open a ticket here.

Thanks for your help!

Best Regards,
Admin

New Chat is out of Beta!

Hello Fighters,

After 30 days, the new chat is out of the beta! Thanks for all your testing and feedback.

As a side note, we have far more members in the new chat then the old one has ever had (on average). Even through idle members get disconnected after 2 hours (the old chat allowed you to stay idle as long as your connection would last).

The chat could not have had a better start and better acceptance. I knew change is hard to push, but I wanted to say thanks for your constructive feedback! It helped to develop the chat further!

Since a few days, a poll is running to decide the next features of the chat. Add your votes, the poll will stay open for another 7 days, then the roadmap for the next site update will be finalized. As small gift for today and finishing the beta, the currently most voted feature was implemented: Site notifications about new messages are now pushed to the chat as well.

Happy typing (and fighting!),
Admin

2019 Summer Update

It's been a while since our last update, but that doesn't mean that our team of code warriors were resting! No! They were fighting hard to bring you even more stuff to help you find your perfect matches!

Brand New Chat

Our good old Kiwi chat has long been wrestling with your online needs, occasionally getting knocked out by your relentless attacks. But now there is a new contender in town: we are introducing our new Beta Chat!

The goal was to fix some of the pain point of the previous chat and bring a better, more modern experience. You can connect simultaneously from all your devices, seamlessly switching between the small screen of your phone to your tablet or computer. The chat will retain your rooms and private conversations, even if your connection drops or your browser dies on you. It is our hope that it can keep you going even on a limited internet connection.

Better site integration lets you share your pictures, use your webcam and add favorites directly. (Blocking and reporting members is just as easy, if you must.) You can configure the font size and your color to your liking, and share our new Fightmojis in your private conversations or rooms.

Speaking of rooms, you can easily create as many of those as you like. Your rooms can be public and open to anyone, or invitation only. Your rooms and private conversations remain alive even if you leave the chat and come back within a day!

For improved privacy, other members can no longer see your internet connection details.

New Privacy Settings, and Terms of Service update

Even fighters need their privacy. To help you give your stalkers that much needed punch in the gut, we present you with some new privacy controls.

On the Preferences page, you can now suppress any or all of the login, birthday and profile update notifications that your fans are getting.

We have also taken new measures to combat online stalking. Blocking someone will hide all your activity from their sight. This includes your online status, your presence in search results and any past opponent lists and recommendations.

To further protect your privacy, events that happened in the past are now hidden from profile pages. (You can still review event participation on the individual event pages.)

Furthermore, unregistered site visitors will not see your online presence anymore. As previously, you can choose to restrict your profile page from unregistered visitors, including search engines such as Google.

Additionally, there are some minor changes to our Terms of Service:

  • §1 explicitly mentions that members must 18 years or older. This was previously only covered on our registration page.
  • §2 has been clarified to state that hate speech and racism are forbidden in all public and private interactions on the site.
  • §3 clarifies what is and isn't covered by our civil code of conduct.

Please review the first three articles of the Terms of Service page for yourself. Your continued use of the site is, as usual, taken as your implicit agreement. If you disagree with the changes, you can terminate your account at any time.

Translators, Supporter and Donors

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Talented Team of Translators and Super Squad of Site Supporters! Without your efforts, none of the localized editions of MeetFighters would be possible. As always, we are eternally* grateful to our Devoted Donors.

Speaking of which, if you are Talented in Thai, Proficient in Polish, Incredible in Italian or Skilled in Swedish, please apply here to become a translator. New languages are also very welcome: get in touch with us and we will make it happen.


And now happy fighting, and may the better warrior win, like that guy on the right, pictured below.

A Starry New Year’s Update

[IMAGE:https://www.meetfighters.com/Content/Images/Admin/new_year_2019_1.jpg]
First of all, a Happy New Year to all our members!

2019 is off to a flying start at MeetFighters. We’ve streamlined our messaging system and added some functionality.

You may already have noticed that the purple notification that appears in the top right hand corner of your screen when you receive a new message now disappears automatically once the message is read; no need for you to click it away anymore. The same happens when you reply to a message in a conversation.

Additionally, you can now ‘star’ any message, incoming or outgoing, in order to make it easier for you to find it later. You’ll find a grey in the bottom right hand corner of every message. If you click it, the star turns green and the message in question will appear in the list of starred messages, which you’ll find (unsurprisingly) under the button at the top of the messaging dashboard. To ‘unstar’ a message, simply click the green , and it will turn grey again.

Please note that starring a message is not the same as saving a message. Non-donating members’ messages will disappear after 90 days, even if starred. Non-donating members can star up to 20 messages at any one time. Donating members can star up to 100 messages.

Another reason to become a donating member – or to keep your donation up to date – and help us improve MeetFighters even further in 2019.

Happy Fighting and workout,
The MeetFighters Team.
