We are rapidly approaching the second year of WatchFighters, and we are planning a small happy birthday party with some discounts!
To all our monetized content creators: Look out for a personal message in the following weeks where we will invite you to join us in celebrating one year of WatchFighters with a discount to all our viewers.
But until then, let's get started with today's massive update!
We redesigned some major parts of the site, starting with the settings page and the video upload page. Both got fairly crowded over the past almost-year. It's our fault -- we just kept adding more and more features for you! :) Hopefully with the new design, they will be more intuitive to use. We know it is no fun to fill out forms, but at least doing so should hurt your eyes less now ;)
We invite you to have a look at your settings page again. We did our best to lay out all of WatchFighter's cool features neatly, with a short description. Maybe you find something you did not know existed! Like today's new feature, which brings us to:
Your fighting roster
You can't fight alone. So, we introduce channel rosters.
Some channels have recurring fighters in their videos. So do viewers have their favorite actors. The new feature brings them together, allowing channels to connect each video to up to 6 fighters. And viewers can see at one glance who is part of the video, and if they like them, see all other videos the actor features in.
You can create a page for as many of your fighters as you wish. Upload a few pictures, add an introduction video, and make them available for your custom requests. And as every channel is unique, our fighter stats are not hard coded: you can come up with the stats you want to present. The default is age, height, and weight, but you can change them or even add more, such as location, favorite hold, or whatever you can come up with!
But most importantly, add the fighter to all videos that they feature in. (The new video upload page has a handy field for this, or you can do this on the fighter's edit page.)
With all that data, WatchFighters will render a beautiful landing page for each of your actors. We make sure everything is cross-linked neatly on our site and easy to find for your viewers. We also introduced a new tab for your fighters on your main channel page, presenting your full roster. With one click, your viewer can see all videos there appear. And directly request a custom video.
If your channel is set up to accept custom requests, available fighters will display there and can be directly selected from the requester.
Soon, the channel editor will be updated, featuring a new panel for your roster.
Sounds good? Then get started:
On the "Settings" page, find " You, the Creator", and click on:
Does your channel feature many contributing fighters? Introduce them to your viewers here!
