Managers and Fighters
What can I upload to my fighter profile?
Photos only (no illustrations or computer-generated art) in JPG or PNG format. Images must be at least 1024px wide or tall, but we won’t display the original. Only upload photos you took or have the rights to.
Why do you require big photos?
The minimum size requirement is to make it harder for people to upload “found” photos. It’s really important to us that people only upload their photos of their pets.
What if I use Instagram?
No problem. Instagram photos are more than large enough for us.
Can I create a fighter profile for my bird, fish, marmoset etc?
Of course! Just select “other” under type. If it has a heartbeat and you consider it a pet, it’s eligible. We strongly prefer that the pet be currently alive and living with you.
Who will see my fighter profile?
Everyone. Even your mom, so keep it clean.
What if I don’t know my pet’s birthday or gender?
If I make a fighter profile for my pet, do I have to fight?
No. Uncheck the “accept challenges” box on the Edit Fighter page to stop getting challenges.
How do I start a fight?
Click the “Start a Fight” button at the top or bottom of every page and you’ll be guided through the process. You’ll need a fighter with at least three photos to fight.
What are Matchups?
If you check "Enable Matchups" for your fighter, every once in a while, the C-F 3000 Supercomputer will match your fighter up with another fighter for an automatic Cute-Fight, no challenge required. Matchups are a great way to keep your fighter in the ring without having to select fighters to challenge.
How do I win a fight?
Upload lots of really good photos. Fill out your fighter profile completely. Challenge fighters that you think you can take. Use different photos in every challenge. Remind yourself that this is a silly game and winning is not the important part.
Can I challenge a fighter of another type?
No. Dogs can only challenge dogs. Cats can only challenge cats. Other pets can only challenge their fellow Others. We tried cat vs. dog Cute-Fights, but the cats always won because they secretly control reality.
If someone challenges me, do I have to fight?
No. You can accept or decline the challenge.
How am I notified of fight challenges?
By email (unless you turn that off) and on the homepage.
How long do fights last?
Three days (72 hours).
What if it’s a tie?
The voting period is extended until there’s a winner.
Voters and Fans
What if I don’t have a pet?
You can still vote in fights and become a fan of fighters you like. Also, you should totally get a pet. They’re rad.
How do I vote in a fight?
Just go to a fight and click the big “Vote” button under the fighter of your choice. Then you’ll be sent to the next fight at random.
How many times can I vote?
Once per fight.
Can I vote for my own fighter?
You can, but we encourage you to vote for the other guy.
How do I delete a cheer?
If you leave a cheer that you regret, just click the “(x)” icon beside your cheer to delete it. You can also delete any cheer for your fighter.
How do I delete a photo I uploaded?
Just visit the photo you want to delete and click the “Delete” link. You can also click the “Manage Photos” button on your fighter’s page and select multiple photos to delete. Photos in fights cannot be deleted until the fight is over.
How do I delete my fighter?
On the Edit Fighter page, click the “Delete this fighter?” link at the bottom of the page. You’ll have to confirm you really want us to delete the fighter. It’s permanent!
How do I delete my account?
On your Edit Profile page, click the “Delete this account?” link at the bottom of the page. You’ll have to confirm you really want us to delete your account. We’ll be sad to see you go.
Is this “Hot or Not” for pets?
No. This is a site about cuteness. Unlike other sites, everything about Cute-Fight is opt-in. There are no “found” photos here. Besides, cute is just different than hot. And there are almost no bikinis here.
How will Cute-Fight make money?
We have a number of pots on the stove, none of which involve selling you out. The first is Sponsored Venues. Just like in real life, brands can buy naming rights to stadiums. The idea is to let sponsors create a special place to play, but playing there will be up to you. If you’re interested in sponsoring a Cute-Fight venue, contact us.
Is there an iPad or iPhone version? Can I block someone? Can fights have themes besides who’s cutest? Can I add tags to my fighter? Can I add video? Are there separate kitten and puppy leagues? Can I join a team? Can I see who my fans are? Can I see who loved my photos? Can I have a pony?
