CagePotato PSA: A Change Is Gonna Come…

Got a couple things to share with you today, Potatoheads…

- We know that CagePotato’s commenting system sucks at the moment. It’s hard to log into, it’s buggy, and it’s been completely overrun by spammers. That’s why we’ll be switching to a Facebook-login system in the near future, which will be much easier to use, and will hopefully inspire a lot more of you to stop lurking and start leaving some comments on our daily posts.

- Speaking of “overrun by spammers,” it’s time to bid adieu to the CagePotato forums. They’ve actually become dangerous from a security standpoint, and we simply don’t have the resources to update/overhaul/monitor them so that they provide a positive experience for their few remaining users. In the immediate future, they’ll still be accessible at, but pretty soon, they’ll be gone. They had a good run, but it’s over.

As with any change to the environment of a website you’ve been visiting for months, or even years, now is the time to throw yourself out of a window and vow that you’ll never come here again. I know that some of these changes will negatively affect some of you — the loss of your beloved usernames, no more forums or handbag spam — but this is all being done to benefit of the majority of our readers, who will hopefully have a smoother experience on our site when this is all said and done. And after that, some upgrades to our mobile site will even make browsing CagePotato on your phone less aggravating. So trust us, take our hands, and together we will march forward into a promising future. Thanks, as always, for your support.



Update: Douglas Crosby Reportedly Reprimanded by UFC for Trolling Spree

(DW’s face at 0:11 says it all. Props: bigpimpinx)

From Dave Meltzer via FightOpinion:

“Doug Crosby’s in a lot of trouble right now because apparently he went on the Internet and was trolling people and making fun of them and all this…they’re ripping on him and he’s making fun of them and that is conduct unbecoming a judge, and I know several of the commissions called him and then the UFC called him as well and they told him to, you know…GET OFF THE INTERNET and there’s a lot of commissions right now very upset about judges on the Internet. I think that they were very mad at Cecil Peoples when he made that stupid leg kick thing after the Shogun Rua fight with Machida, so I think that there’s going to be [an] unofficial rule…that you cannot go out there and troll people on the Internet…

I don’t see anything wrong with a judge explaining [himself] but a judge should absolutely not be out there making fun of people. Then again, I don’t know… (laughs) The Internet’s a funny thing, I mean, should Dana be on Twitter telling everyone fuck you? And he’s doing that and…he’s the most powerful guy in the whole business! So, he’s setting quite the example here.”

So, no more bizarre post-fight rants from Douglas Crosby; I guess that’s something we can all get behind. But hey, if you don’t want to be assaulted by Doug’s brain-droppings, just stay out of his UG threads. I’m more concerned with the judging itself. Has he been reprimanded for that yet?
