I'm not sure if I'm being extremely thick - but how do you delete a story? I'm searching everywhere for a delete button but I can't see it, whether I'm viewing or editing the story. Thanks.


The Tech 2020-02-20 18:14

(In reply to this)

Deleting a story is not possible yet.
You can set it to private what has an similar effect.
If you send me the link I can delete it for you.

Question, is anyone getting a "this file seems to be missing" error when they try to upload a new pic?


Ardyn Amicitia 2020-02-15 16:08

(In reply to this)

Same here! Can this be fixed??


Beybi 2020-02-16 00:15

(In reply to this)

I just figured this out. Go to manage photos to upload your pics it seems to get around the problem of trying to do it in the character editor page


Anna La Diabla Negra (deleted member) 2020-01-17 16:07

Hi tech
A couple of days ago, I started editing a fight story, labeled it private, with the intent of sending it to my opponent for their approval at a later date. But when I went back to review and do further edits, there was no longer an option to add another character. So I had to redo and then add the opponent. Could this be changed, so that you can save something to yourself, and then add someone later? Secondly, I would like to delete the story that is held privately, but there is no option to delete private stories (just a house keeping issue on my part). I agree there should be no option to delete published stories, at least unless all character approve the deletion,
Thanks
Anna


The Tech 2020-01-25 13:55

(In reply to this)

I fully agree with you.
The story management system will get all these features in one of the next updates.
But for now, you have to recreate a story (copy&paste) the text to a new story and add the members there.
You can send me in a private message the link to a story you like to have removed.

In the future everyone who is part of a story can delete a story - no questions asked.
- for data privacy laws, deleting your own data can't require any approval. (At least that way it is much easier to handle on my side.)

This all will come. :)

Hi
Private rooms store the stories for 30 days, yet when I go to download the story in Stories, it only downloads the last 24 hours or so. So I have to cut and paste the first parts of the story into the story box. Real bummer. Can this be fixed please?
Aine


The Tech 2020-01-15 11:08

(In reply to this)

Can this be fixed please?
Sure, please tell me the exact amount of hours/days to go back when you load the transcript. Where everyone on this site would be happy with.
If we always load 30 days it will very soon too much and useless as you need to delete most of the text all the time.

I'm happy to change this, but I this is one of the cases where no right answer exists.


Anna La Diabla Negra (deleted member) 2020-01-15 12:14

(In reply to this)

I understand. If we could get 3 or 4 days, it would be brilliant! Anna


The Tech 2020-01-15 16:54

(In reply to this)

3 or 4 days? :D


Anna La Diabla Negra (deleted member) 2020-01-15 17:03

(In reply to this)

4 days is better, as fights sometimes can go on for a while due to peoples schedules and time zone differences. Thanks
Anna


DJ Heller 2020-01-12 08:45

(In reply to this)

There a lot of ways of doing, easy way is by copy and paste.


PWRWrestler 2020-01-08 03:16

Why can't one load pictures directly from my hard drive to chats? seems to create alot of unnecessary storage... ending up duplicating pic files on this site... not real cost effective... unless storage for pics is not an issue... but it also creates extra steps.


Dangerous Dev 2020-01-01 18:06

How do I get multiple pics to display on my profile page? I uploaded multiple pictures when I created my profile, but I'm only seeing one on my profile. All of the photos are set to public.

Nevermind. I figured out I had to move them to the character's folder.


The Tech 2020-01-01 22:55

(In reply to this)

Yep, glad it worked now :)
Enjoy the site!


Anna La Diabla Negra (deleted member) 2019-12-27 16:11

Question about private rooms...WHen you provide an option so that when you invite someone into a private room that they are allowed to return if they logout, and don't require a second invite? not allowing people to come and go after they are invited makes it difficult to have a fight over an extended period of time.


The Tech 2019-12-27 16:20

(In reply to this)

This is already the case.
If they logout by just closing the browser they will log in automatically into the private room.

But if they leave the private room (closing the x of the Room) they get a warning (telling them that they leave a private room), and if they confirm the warning they need to be invited again. (--> Don't confirm every warning without reading it ;) )


Cyber Villain 2019-12-26 04:28

Quick question about relationships:
On my profile, I see both sides of the relationship, for example:
Cyber Villain is FRIEND of The Tech
The Tech is FRIEND of Cyber Villain

To avoid the duplications, if I delete the first one (Cyber Villain is FRIEND of The Tech), does it delete the entire relationships?


The Tech 2019-12-26 10:43

(In reply to this)

Yes that is correct. If you remove one, it deletes it in both directions.

Also, in a future update, these duplications will be clean up. So only one relationship entry will be visible.
So much to do on Chatfighters :)

Happy Holidays.


DJ Heller 2019-12-24 10:17

Can we use the ignore instead of blocking , when chatting in the chat room.?


The Tech 2019-12-24 13:33

(In reply to this)

No. this is currently not possible.


Alia Boxer 2019-12-21 20:51

Is the ability to insert photos from our photo files into mail messages not available any more? I think I remember being able to do that earlier ...


The Tech 2019-12-21 22:33

(In reply to this)

The button for that got removed as it was never working on ChatFighter.
It was a part from MeetFighter message system.
The message system will be rewritten next year, inc. the ability for attaching pictures.


Alia Boxer 2019-12-21 23:23

(In reply to this)

Thank you ... I know I was able to do it in Chat, and can still do it there, I thought I had done it in Mail before but maybe not ... thanks for the assistance


Green Cheetah 2019-12-18 19:49

May I propose a suggestion, I noticed on Microsoft Edge that when talking on the chat, when you have a new message, the number is over where the X would be and I end up often closing the tabs for private messages. Is there anyway for the new message notification to either be on the left of the user name or for the x to be further away from where the new message notification.


ErikAtlas 2019-12-03 00:52

Hey chief, I had a question - I had a match today with "Vice master" or "Vicemaster" and can not pull the file for the interaction so I can post - not sure what I'm doing wrong. The character does not seem to be on chatfighters any more.

update - and never mind - found it


The Tech 2019-12-03 12:16

(In reply to this)

Great! you found it! :)


Blaze Beraht 2019-11-27 06:25

Is there a way to add another "character" to a story once it's saved?
I thought I had properly added someone to a story, but they aren't showing up and can't see it while it's set to private.


The Tech 2019-11-27 10:35

(In reply to this)

Currently, you can't add another character after the story is saved.
As a workaround, you can create a new story and copy and paste the existing story-text. And add him to the new story.

This is on the list together with the delete function of stories.


Blaze Beraht 2019-11-27 12:31

(In reply to this)

Ok, thank you very much for all your hard work.
The site has been growing a lot and seeing all these new features in beta is very nice.


Cobra 2019-11-26 18:47

Hi. Where can i get some pictures from fighters which i can use as an avatar for my profile?
The avatar pictures here are good but quite limited.


The Tech 2019-11-26 19:36

(In reply to this)

You can get fighting pics from:

  1. https://www.google.com
  2. https://www.duckduckgo.com

Cobra 2019-11-26 19:42

(In reply to this)

Yes, but what about the copyright of the pictures?


The Tech 2019-11-26 19:45

(In reply to this)

You can search for copyright-free pictures too :)


Cobra 2019-11-26 19:50

(In reply to this)

Unfortunately copyright-free pictures suck.
They are simply not good pictures.


DJ Heller 2019-11-26 06:10

I guess tech going to be busy.


Punked Up (deleted member) 2019-11-25 17:20

Would it be possible to have a "Do Not Disturb" or "Occupied" status in the chatroom? Something we can set to let the others know that we're occupied in a match or something? I think that would be really cool!


The Tech 2019-11-25 18:02

(In reply to this)

You could leave the #lobby (closing it) then nobody sees you anymore.
Over the room list, you can join the #lobby again at any time.


Punked Up (deleted member) 2019-11-25 18:24

(In reply to this)

Neat trick, thanks!


Adrian Drake (deleted member) 2019-11-25 16:16

Hey, I have a problem with my picture. The same picture I have chosen in my profile doesn't show up in the chat, is there something I need to do to make it work?


The Tech 2019-11-25 16:23

(In reply to this)

This is because of chacing issues with your browser.
Hard-Reload with ctrl+F5 while you are in the chat. Maybe you have to press another key too, google for "Hard reload" and your browser name.

OR, you can wait, 12-24h.


Adrian Drake (deleted member) 2019-11-25 16:30

(In reply to this)

It works now, thanks!


Princesse Ludwyna 2019-11-23 00:52

I have a suggestion. The different proposed tags and fetishes should have an explanation pop up so everyone have the same interpretation for them.


scottywrestler 2019-11-21 00:38

I posted a story and I cannot make it public...I checked the make it public box but it still remains private. Thanks


The Tech 2019-11-21 09:44

(In reply to this)

Did all guys you added to the story approve it? and allowed it to be published?
Sometimes people approve the story, but also select 'keep private' as long as one character selected 'keep private' the story will not be published.

What is the link to the story? - Then I can check the status for you.


Domino (deleted member) 2019-11-20 16:39

Just a suggestion: Would it improve usability to have profiles open in a new tab, rather than on top of the last opened profile?


The Tech 2019-11-21 10:29

(In reply to this)

Would it? I'm not sure but open to suggestions.
The problem I see is with mobile devices, were you end up with having 100 tabs open then.
As people tend to not close tabs on mobile devices.

I'm unsure about this.


Domino (deleted member) 2019-11-21 13:22

(In reply to this)

Very fair point :)


Cyber Villain 2019-11-16 15:38

How do we erase a story (be it one we published or have set to private)?


The Tech 2019-11-17 09:15

(In reply to this)

Hi Cyber Villain,

for now, you can only make it private, the delete functions is not yet implemented...
Will come soo.

The Tech.


hairy frat bro 2019-11-14 19:30

I like the Relationship part of the profiles now, cool add. But now the past stories are gone. Is the plan to add it back?


hairy frat bro 2019-11-14 19:31

(In reply to this)

Ohhhh I see it, but it's under the footer, and then there's a second footer.


The Tech 2019-11-14 19:43

Ahm.. thanks for reporting this! - Fixed!
Let's pretend that never happened :D


hairy frat bro 2019-11-14 19:44

Lets be honest, this sound like fetlife.


Steely Dan 2019-11-13 22:39

Great site ... just an idea, you have a dedicated location for "stories" and "books" ... what about something just like the stories channel, but for bout logs? I'm on another cyber-fight site that has a channel devoted to keeping logs of bouts in a library, and it's got more than 100 logs in there now. It's a popular place for people to go and read other people's fights ... or their own. Just something maybe worth taking a look at ...


The Tech 2019-11-14 12:38

(In reply to this)

But that is our story page, people do upload they fights and chat transcripts there.
If I missunderstand you you can send me a link to the other site and I can have a look what you mean exactly.


Steely Dan 2019-11-15 02:14

(In reply to this)

It's not a major issue. Since I'm a writer, I probably look at it differently. I see "stories" and "books" as one person's creation, whether it be fiction or an account or description of a bout. I see "bout logs" as the actual transcript involving two (or occasionally more) people's actual "live" exchange of posts. Again, nothing major, it just seems that it's two very different things. But that's just one person's opinion and it's probably more complex than just adding another channel.


Leah The Dragon Morgan 2019-11-12 00:11

KidLion 2019-11-07 16:16

Why you don't add a way to understand if a character is on line or off line i never understand if my opponents are on or off...


The Tech 2019-11-07 21:58

(In reply to this)

Hello KidLion,

Not as easy as you think, as a logged-in account can have more than one character attached.
Should they all at once be online?
Not as simple as on meetfighters, were one login = one account.
And on meetfighter we have the problem with mobile devices, some mobile browser keeps the browser tab active for a few hours up to half a day. And the online indicator is less useful then.

As you see, there are some options and design decisions to be made and there are more important features in my opinion (group functions). But I'm happy to change my opinion if more people want these features, but then please suggest how to handle multiple characters.

Also, I don't see the benefit, at the moment we mainly have the Chat.
You can quickly jump in the chat and see who is active.

Best Regards,
Tech


Chicago Wrestlebear 2019-11-05 02:33

Interesting site. I’m starting to play and explore. But a question, is there anyway to download another character’s picture? You can’t see the picture with all the stats overplayed upon it. Hard to size up the opponent.


Admin 2019-11-19 09:56

(In reply to this)

Zooming pictures works now always.


The Tech 2019-11-05 09:44

(In reply to this)

Not yet.
Currently, this only works when the character has more than one picture.
(Then the picture slider appears were you can full screen the single pics)


Biff Glover 2019-11-03 15:38

After editing the avatar picture originally set during character creation, the avatar shown in Chat may only reflect the original instead of the update. I noticed this on an alt where I switched the pic to a newer one made available after I made the character. It's only happening on a secondary; for the primary character, the update was successfully reflected in Chat.


The Tech 2019-11-03 15:41

(In reply to this)

This is because of browser caching.
You can reload the chat - while you are in the chat with "shift+F5" or after 12-24h it will clear the cache itself and updates the picture.


BigRedBoxingGloves 2019-11-03 15:59

(In reply to this)

Yep, that does it! Thank you!


The Tech 2019-11-03 15:14

Hi, everytime I try and load somebody's profile I instead see the guy with red background doing a "timeout" gesture. I thought this was for deleted profiles but it's doing it for people that are still active 😊
