15000 Members, Mobile Design Work

Hello everyone,

This blog post is to announce that MeetFighters has passed 15,000 active members! This is the "raw", uninflated number of members who have logged in at least once in the past month. We never inflated our numbers, not when we were the smallest, and not now that MeetFighters is the largest wrestling personals site.

Let's celebrate, and what better way to do that than to show you the upcoming new site design for mobile devices. Please note that these designs are just "wireframes", which means that they represent structure and layout, but not style such as fonts, colors or sizes. I'm happy with the existing two color schemes of the site and not planning on changing them.

So without further ado, here's what the mobile site will look like on a handheld device (smart phone):


The user menu, which has links to your profile, settings and related stuff is on the right. The burger button is now on the upper left.


Tapping the burger button slides a sidebar in from the left, showing links to the most frequently used pages.


Tapping the user button gives access to your profile and settings.

For tablet users and small laptop screens, we also show the member ticker (horizontal scrollable list of random profiles), and a search field in the navigation bar.


For yet wider screens (normally desktop computers with decent sized screens), the burger button is hidden and the sidebar is automatically expanded:


Some other changes to expect:

  • The "What's new?" page will be renamed to "Content" or something similar, and will directly link to the latest stuff such as photos, videos and blog posts.
  • Continued work on improving layout for smaller screens.
  • Don't forget to vote for member-submitted ideas!

This is the plan so far! Feedback is, as always, appreciated. Thank you all for making this the most popular and fun site.

– Admin

Recommend separate profile pages
for boxers and/or wrestling personals.

Are you asking for a seperate sub-site for boxers?

If so i think the groups section more than covers this.

Interests should be clearly defined; not subject to interpretation; although not limited, as it is now!

Congratulations! I wish the 'other' site was as conscientious about keeping deadwood off the site.


Yan (11 gold) 12/05/2017 1:38 PM

Definately the best - great site congratulations


abuster (25 gold) 12/05/2017 1:41 PM

I'm so excited for the app! It's been a long time comin. Thank you for the update!


MCRLON30UK (55 bronze) 12/05/2017 1:51 PM

New layout wireframes look a lot like my rejected layout suggestion a while back. It'll be better.
Keep up the good work!


lspowerhouse (165 ) 12/05/2017 2:12 PM

midwestheel (5 ) 12/05/2017 2:28 PM

If there's a way to make chat more mobile-friendly, that'd be awesome too


Zeus (17 silver) 12/05/2017 2:38 PM

Congratulations Admin! Good job! Defintely can’t wait to see it!


FlDean2012 (76 silver) 12/05/2017 2:55 PM

Progress for the future.


synxiec (37) 12/05/2017 2:59 PM

I Am Happy To See The Effort Here As I Am On The Phone Most Of The Time When Using The Site.

The “What’s New” Section I’d Leave As Is; I Know Exactly What I’m Getting There And Clarity In Navigation Is Good.

Thanks For The Update.


Tigerrific (51 platinum) 12/05/2017 3:45 PM

Thank you again for all the hard work and dedication. Keep this site great!


Jimmy Elijah (60) 12/05/2017 4:58 PM

This looks like it's gonna be great!

Love it! Keep up the great job

Lemme know of you need beta testers 😀. Im always using this site on mobile.


HardfightFfm (64 platinum) 12/05/2017 11:25 PM

Respekt was ihr vorhabt. Ich bin sehr gespannt. Hoffe das es dann auch so gut klappt. Nicht das man mit dem Rechner das neue Design nutzen kann und mobil nicht.


movik (20 gold) 12/05/2017 11:41 PM

Guys, thank you for a great site!
Please, do not change anything in the presentation (interface) for computer, it so good already, sincerely.
Or let us chose between old and new page.


grappleruk (121 platinum) 12/06/2017 1:37 AM

Congratulations on building such a successful site. The design refresh wireframes look really promising!


Loboso (2) 12/06/2017 3:12 AM

Amazing fellas, next step will be to do an app *-*


windupguys (16) 12/06/2017 3:06 PM

They did try but its really a harder thing to do. To be honest, app only gives you added advantage of the notifications push. These days, browsers can also do the same so probably good for them to concentrate on making a good mobile site that works for all mobiles rather than trying to make apps for different mobile OSes. 😁


ScissorJack (1 bronze) 12/06/2017 6:21 AM

Your investment in UX has made this an enjoyable site - great work building a community through the awesome development work... looking forward to your continuing efforts!!!


hantsgut (5 bronze) 12/06/2017 8:52 AM

Thankyou. It looks great - im confident you know what needs to be done and am happy for you to get on and do it :D


Spruceman (64 platinum) 12/06/2017 6:36 PM

This is one of the very best-managed and member-friendly sites on the Internet. Keep up the good-work, folks; and I encourage members to support the site, so it can further strive toward perfection.


tjenkins948 (12 ) 12/10/2017 6:35 AM

I would prefer there be a app for iOS and Android so that we wouldn’t have to use the website but that’s a nice improvement.


locoflex (1) 12/11/2017 10:00 PM



grappleruk (121 platinum) 12/16/2017 3:27 PM

Just saw that the mobile design is now live. Nice work. Looks good and is responsive!


edscissors (24 platinum) 12/16/2017 3:37 PM

It'll probably take a session or two to find where things are now but it looks good and clear as ever. There is another site which looks like a complete jumble (rummage) sale, discouraging visits I think. Our site is always eminently clear, easy to navigate, and that does not comes about by chance. Thank you, as ever, for your hard work keeping everything going so well.
