If any of you are wondering what I’ve been spending my time doing, this boring post is meant to address this question. Rather than work on the comic (which I know disappoints many of you) we’re in the process of working on the latest version of Fightlinker. Unlike other MMA sites that seem content to only mildly mix it up once in a while, we’re pretty much completely obsessed in bringing you an increasingly refined product. This time around, Fightlinker is getting a massive makeover; we’re eliminating the frames, and introducing a more managed way of tracking forums, FLIM’s, and any other cool additions we feel like developing in the future.
With that said, although the initial design is complete, we’ve had an impossible time finding any qualified PHP personnel to work on the project. Truth be told, the actual amount of PHP needed is limited, so it isn’t exactly a full time job. It’s a 1-2 week project at the most (aka 1-2 weeks of procrastination and 7-8 hours of last second coding), so we’re officially in the market for someone looking to make money while helping make Fightlinker 5.0 possible.
As for further plans with the site, the comic is on hold for the next few months. At the end of the summer, I’m becoming full time on the site alongside Ryan, and my #1 focus is on making Fightlinker float above the Red. That means placing a heavy focus on the business end of the site. Until we can be comfortable enough not to eat Ramen noodles on a daily basis, there are no plans to work on the comic. That’s not to say it’s dead however. We love doing it, and we’re positive that once the site gets financially stable that it will be an important part of our continued growth.
So that’s the general news bitches. If you have comments of feedback about the new look of the site, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for great feedback and ideas to keep improving the site.
