You're welcome ;-)

I was wondering, because we edit the material we shoot it usually takes us a few days before we can post anything, what do you guys prefer in the future?
That we edit it and it looks better but it take 2-3 days to get online.
Or we almost don't edit anything, so it will be much less fun to watch but it will be online the same day?

@Janine

why not just work as animals have no life and do the edit and post on the same day?? =).. kidding

personaly i think I would prefer to have the material the same day or atleast before the event, its still great material to watch post event but now tons of sites already have simular meterial ( offcourse not any thing as good as this, but still. )

Mabe if you could post the most interesting parts fast,, like an short article about the pressconf and perhaps a short video with one or two stare downs / or just some photos.

dont get me wrong here Janine, I love this material that you have presented and you have all done an absolut fantastic job, and I am very thanfull for it.

No I think you're absolutly right!
I think the strength is that we should be the first getting things online, we tried 3 press passes actually, so we could bring an editor and things would be online the same evening, but they didn't approve.

I think, and I told my cameraman who edited it, that this is too much, actually I watched for 3 minutes and went like: YAWNNN BORING!
We should've kept it short, just the staredowns of the well known fighters and the piece where Simon talks about Saki

Ok, before you guys get to see part 3 I would like to explain something! hahaha

See, at this press conference every year the same thing happens, the press is allowed to ask questions, but nobody dares to stand up and walk to the mic. (I guess that is because they are afraid to ask a stupid question in front of 32 fighters and a crowd of press and fans)
So It's Showtime asked me in a email if I would be the one breaking the ice and ask the first question so that it would not be a disaster like last year, and the others would follow.
I said it was ok, but to be honest behind my big mouth there is a little girl and I really didn't want to get up there!
So at the press conference I talked to all the other press I knew from last year (k1fans, kickbox.nl mixfight.nl) and I asked if they would ask questions, they all said YEAH SURE!
So I didn't worry to much, everybody would ask questions, there was no need for me to get up there.
After the staredowns the host asked: "Are there any questions?"
I looked around me....nobody stood up.
"No questions?" 30 seconds went by....
Then I realized: SHIT, nobody is getting up!
So I stood up, walked to the mic with NO IDEA AT ALL what I was going to ask!
So if you see the video it might be something like: Uhhh Tyrone....Uh, you,,,,eh 2 fighters....eehhhhh

Forgive me for that preformance, I just wasn't prepared!

Well done Janine! You made It's Showtime producers fans of Fans of K1 ;-) Maybe they'll start their own site now... FOFOK1??
Can't wait to see the video.
It's strange nobody wants to go up there and ask questions. I understand the pressure, but they're all press right, isn't it their job to do so?

The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
