The MartialTalk Network FAQ

What is the MartialTalk Network?

More than a simple 'link exchange', the MartialTalk Network is a growing cross selection of websites who have the goal of helping the martial artist in his or her goals in the arts.

What are the requirements for listing?

A website will be considered for inclusion in the MTN if it meets the following simple requirements:

1- Be a repository of knowledge.(Archives, histories, videos, and some portal sites.)

2- Be well written. (Site must have its own domain name, be reasonably bug free, and updated regularly)

3- Be willing to display the MTN membership logo on either its links page, or preferably the home page. This logo will link back to this FAQ and the members listing.

4- Adhere to the MTN Code of Ethics. This Code, signifies that you conduct your business in a fair and honest manner, and are a good internet citizen, avoiding the sending of SPAM and the dissemination of false information, and behaving responsibly in your emails and forum communications.

5- Be of a child-safe nature. While the arts can get brutal, sites featuring adult content, hate speech, sexist/racist/bigoted content, porn or links to the same will not be included in the MTN.

6- Sites which are totally or mostly devoted to the sale of a product (online proshops, e-stores, etc) are not eligible for inclusion.

How much does it cost?

Nothing. The MartialTalk Network is a free service.

What does the MartialTalk Network actually do?

A couple of things. :)
Its a loose 'alliance' of complimentary sites, whose members will help each other problem solve and improve their sites. A few ideas in the works right now are:
- Sharing of problem users / banned user / troll info across many forums/sites.
- Web Design issues for Martial Arts sites.
- Resource sharing and content feeds.
- A high quality link exchange/web ring (Sites must meet certain standards for inclusion)
- Professional networking for martial arts webmasters

And some more stuff soon as we figure it out. :)
