At Okie Rumble this weekend, having a good time, will be posting pics when I get back.
Next Staten Island wrestlefest will be Saturday Sept. 26 at High Noon; message me here or on palaestra.us.com for details.
I have been involved with GayGames Wrestling since 1982, and I will be there in Koeln 2010 as well to make sure we have another great 150 wrestler event.
But smaller sports like martial arts and wrestling are in danger of being pushed out of the GayGames. There is serious push to just do simple easy big sports like swimming, and then including conferences and Pride events instead.
The GayGames Federation meets in Koeln 2 October. There is a Petition to let the GayGames people know that you value the smaller sports over conferences and Pride events.
You can sign this Petition anonymously, but at least include your city/nation if you must sign anonymously ....
All COMMENTS, especially European comments are especially welcome in the Petition.
I will once again be wrestling and or fighting in Mikes Fight Show at the Faultline Club in LA on October 3rd 2009. This is a an event that raises funds for charities and equipment for the shows. I co-produce the shows with Mike and book wrestlers/fighters for the show. We recently purchased a professionally made ring that was custom made to fit in the small space available in the club. We have participants and fans attend the show from around the country and world. The show has received press coverage in West Hollywood and has become a very popular event. If you would like to participate send me a message, we have boxing, all styles of wrestling, mma, pancrase, gut punching, bear hugging lots of give-a-ways from sponsors such as BG East Videos, Golds Gym, 665 leather, Capitol Drugs, Super Nutrition, Rough Trade, Nutrition Health and Sport.
I just wanted to say a very big thankyou to all of you who attended the Open House this afternoon.
My thanks to:-
Ken, Robert, Laurant, Mike, Gary, Tony, Trevor, Lance, Patrick and Ali.
It was great to see all of you. I hope that you all had a fun time.
In BERLIN 2nd to 12th September. Up for scraps anytime. Any gear / any style. Indoor / outdoor.
I know it doesn't add much to the usefulness of AllFighters, but it's fun and it was relatively easy to do. I'm also hoping that this will encourage more members to upload their photos. I'm not sure how much extra workload the ticker puts on the server; if it's too much, I will have to disable it.
Please, if you have the time, vote on the poll in my previous blog entry.

NOT A BLOGGER BY NATURE BUT WANTED TO THANK SILE FOR THE CREATION AND MAINTENANCE OF THIS SITE, AND FOR INVITING ME TO JOIN EARLY ON. HAVE ENJOYED WATCHING HIM WRESTLE ON YOUTUBE CLIPS AND STILL WANNA TAKE HIM ON EVEN IF I GET BEAT, ALTHOUGH I DON'T LIKE TO LOSE! <G> HAD A MATCH ON SUNDAY WITH A LOCAL GUY I MET ON ANOTHER SITE...AS USUAL IT WAS A GREAT MATCHUP AND A GOOD LONG HARD WRESTLE. I'M READY FOR MORE! BRING IT ON! PS SORRY FOR THE CAPS I DON'T MEAN TO BE SHOUTING JUST TOO LAZY TO RE-DO THIS! I'LL DO BETTER NEXT TIME...LATER MEN!
I made some improvements to the blogs, more specifically, how the comments and votes are handled.
More is coming...
Something I've been thinking about:
First, I don't mean to turn AllFighters into a sort of hot-or-not site. However, ratings can encourage uploading, and help float the best photos to the top. Also, members would get some sort of feedback about their photos in the process. You would, of course, be able to opt out from having your photos rated.
What do you think?
I'm finished with Tracker/2009-06-30; now you can keep your private notes about other members right on the members' profiles. Of course, no-one else will be able to read your notes; this is for you to make keeping track of your contacts easier.
You can also read all your notes on a single page.
I hope my dear members will find this new feature useful.
– users/Admin out.
Due to the request of some members, and some hopefully-soon-to-be-members, it is now possible to restrict your profile to registered members. A restricted profile will not be indexed by internet search engines, and visitors of the site will not be able to see the profile.
The profile will still turn up in searches, but when the visitor clicks on it, he will be brought to a page where he is asked to log in or register.
Also, blocked users will not be able to visit each others' profiles any more. I'm hoping this will help cool tempers a bit. Or not; either way, blocking a member sort of implies that you are no longer interested in any sort of exchange, and blocking the profile might just be a logical addition to that. Since blocking is a two-edged sword, you won't be able to visit the blocked member's profile either.
To hide your profile from non-registered visitors, visit your profile, and set your profile's visibility to 'Restricted'. You can set it back to 'Public' any time.
That's it for today, suggestions and comments are welcome.
