Fight-A-Base can survive anything-- even nukes!

Long time no update. It's been a few weeks of set backs on the development side, things that should've worked didn't, things did work that I decided I hated, etc. As such, what went up today is a hodgepodge of half baked ideas that I have cobbled together into a functional update.
Of greatest note, the series pages are back. We've been without them for a long while, and it provided me an opportunity to try out some new formatting stuff which will be spreading to other areas of the site. Only admins have the ability to add them and assign games / characters to them, so don't look for a sub.
Secondarily, characters now have a "games" page similar to the "characters" page that games have. It is crazy redundant right now, but because of code limitations I couldn't not upload it. In the coming weeks, it will see some big changes too.
Other than that the pending submissions and updates got some love, the image sub process should be a little easier on everybody. There were also some ui changes done up above and some font stuff here and there, so things don't look so wonky when pages have too much (or too little) content.
Lastly, there were about a million bug fixes because again, this update was really all over the place. Speaking of I've got a new game in development (as it seems like everyone is already bored with the quiz) and while its going to take FOREVER to finish, it should be playable by next update.
As always, stay tuned.
What a Heavy Day

What can I say? The Fight-A-Base is back. It's been over a year of uncertainty but now (despite the truck load of work I still need to do) the BEST SOURCE on the web for fighting game you name it is definitely re-open for business.
I've shifted to a more routine every sunday-ish update schedule, and there's enough submission forms in play to keep contributing types entertained while they wait for more.
Whatever you're here for, I hope you find it and come back for more.

I'm back from what would've been a vacation if this was a real job and not a largely irrelevant to the world hobby but thankfully I haven't been entirely idle. You probably already noticed I played with the fonts and header spacing a little bit, now biography rankings are finally back (the sub for which will be available soon, I swear)
You can find the link off the main character select page or by clicking any field in a character profile. As an added bonus, the similar character info is now SUPER ACCURATE taking into account both bios and tags automatically. No more weird clicking and loading and clicking some more.
Only winners and losers here.

Starting today and lasting roughly one month, we will be running a PC netplay-based league tournament. Anyone who can join the Steam group can enter. I will be personally buying the winner a Steam copy of Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm. Check this post for details:
Come on, weeniemeister. I'll show you my stuff.

Road trips and personal technical difficulties not-withstanding, I did get a chance to make some updates to the site. The most significant of which is that (most of) the content pages use direct links now instead of form submits and java hocus pocus, so no more refresh pop ups and now you can link to a particular character in a particular game's movelist, story, dialogue, etc. There are also ongoing battles with the submission system that I hope to have results from in the near future. I've also made a change to the way tag links are handled, because the old tag page was useless.
