    Please post your opinions on what is already good, and what could be improved.

    for me, I think that not enough people know that there even is a cage forum. So the "awareness" should be spread a little more. And in terms of goals...

    1) More people should start posting training videos, it is nice to get tips from other athletes.

    2) This place needs a moderator

    3) Get the latest UFC/Price/Other events posted within a day of the event occurring. Problem right now is that our server only holds 2 gb at most and the TV rips are over 3 gb. If anybody can get a hold of the small versions then PLEASE let me know.

    4) After files have been hosted and taken down, those who downloaded them should all be willing to repost via their own host or yousendit link for those people who missed the link.

    That's all that I can think of for now...

    anytime i see an MMA thread in the main forum, i post a link to the cage, but i agree that there are lots more people trickling in as time goes by. we need more people posting in here to make it move quicker

    a moderator would be nice, but i honestly don't think it's necessary. once the cage gets bigger and more people post actively, it'll be more needed. also, a mod would be nice to act as a voice for all of the cage

    once my new RAM for my computer gets here (monday), i'll start uploading videos again regularly :)

    i think we need more awareness. no need for a mod. most of the events are under 2 gigs...anyways most of us have tracker accounts...should probably stick to just hosting single fights and instructionals.

    honestly, this forum keeps itself rather clean and doesn't need a mod, for now. if you guys want something stickied or otherwise, just PM an smod.

    How do you get an account on mmatracker these days?
    If people could come into the forum and get vids from the tracker, that would be great

    when huge events happen, someone from the cage should be letting the main forum know. They love to follow match for match hit for hit commentary, if nothing else after the main forum is done have the thread moved in here?

    I did a bit of a PBP for UFC 56, while I was recovering on the couch. There were maybe 2 people following the thread, though. I order most of 'em, so if I know fellow MMA guys will be around, I'll do what I can to give a decent PBP for those who don't mind spoilers.

    I've asked Fazle for a mod for this forum and have never gotten an answer.
    I think each subforum needs a mod simply to do the occasional house cleaning and to respond to sticky requests, trolls, etc.
    My forum is probably less active than this one.

    Im thinking the awareness is probably the biggest issue, only problem with that is the more ppl know the more ppl will troll and try to start shit. I voted for this forum but seldom ever come in(till recently), hopefully more people wil start to get interested, I know lately I've been a bit obsessed spendin a fair ammount of time watchin old fights on youtube for motivation to get back in the habit.

    I think it needs a longer name so people see it as it's sort of hidden and very missable

    That won't do anything. What we have to do is post in the main forum letting people know when we updated new files and shit so they come here and eventually become regular posters.
