5 YEARS OF MRFIXITSTIPS – WHAT NEXT?

HappyBirthday5

FIVE years ago today I posted my first article on MrFixitsTips.co.uk. Little did I know the huge success it would turn in to.

I’ve given away an estimated £10,000+ in free bets, not to mention bundles of cash, an iPad mini and tickets to various football matches and sporting events.

Between myself and my various teammates we’ve posted almost 7500 articles and received more than half a million comments – forging one of the best online betting communities on the internet. We’ve seen people come and go from all corners of the world and welcomed more than 2.5 million unique visitors to the site.

It’s been quite a journey. Thanks to all of you that have been part of it so far.

So what next?

It’s fair to say the current site has outgrown our modest ambitions of those early days so I’m working hard behind the scenes with our team to revamp MrFixitsTips.co.uk.

We’ll be relaunching the site in the coming weeks, bringing you brand new features so you can share even more tips across more leagues and sports. A brand new forum will put you in control, allowing you to set the agenda and to post your own bets, challenges and tips.

We’ll also make it easier to make the most of our community. You’ll be able to follow other members, see their comments and join groups and discussions on everything from Superleague Rugby to supporting Clydebank!

But we want to know what you want. We might not be able to accommodate all your requests and some of them we may already be planning but let us know in the comments section below what you’d like to see from the site, how you’d like to see it grow again over the years to come and your ideas on how we can keep it one of the leading betting sites on the web.

Here’s to the next five years!

    Congrats on the 5 year milestone :)

  5. banksie 1 year ago

    A well drilled forum by a tipster dedicated to the success of his site. Congratulations on a very informative platform of some very talented tipsters…. my favourites being Gregg, Yourself Mr F, Jordan and the irreplaceable Raal. Many other guys pushing for the top table tho’. A monthly series head to head with certain guys would add a nice twist to a great read.

      banksie, we may do that when the forum is added. Lots of prizes to give away too and not just free bets.

    Congratulations Mr f, brilliant site with loads of top tipsters. Long may it continue :-)

  8. Centrecircle 1 year ago

    MR F congrats on 5 years but there is one thing i would like to see the most.When you/posters post your/our tips i would like to see proof of the tips.via the site or twitter

      Mr Fixit 1 year ago

      Centrecircle, people can put them up if they want and we will be more twitter active from next month.
      Most people put up tips before the event and that’s crucial.
      I don’t like to see stakes and I don’t advise stakes so for me to put up my slips would be irresponsible.
      I always bet on my tips and I don’t need to prove it to anyone.

  9. Greg Browning 1 year ago

    That’s a terrific feat Mr F – many congratulations! People come and go but a real good mix of people, expertise and markets at the moment!

    At the end of the day we are all here to beat the bookies and this site can give people the edge be it through tips, insight, stats text

    Here’s to the next 5 years :)

      Greg, we wouldn’t be much without guys look like you so I hope you stick around for the next five years and maybe give us another set of twins.

  10. Greg Browning 1 year ago

    A prize could be a day’s hospitality at a Clydebank game of their choice – entry, pie and a bovril!

    Gold dust, haha

      Greg, there are indeed hospitality packages available. You name the date and I’ll treat you to a day you’ll never remember.

  11. Big Davie 1 year ago

    Congratulations Mr Fix It on your five years! I’ve been following along for a long time, not normally one to comment, but it has to be said your website and service is great.

    Whatever you do for the revamp, please keep it simple, you do one thing really well at the moment and you don’t need to grow more arms and legs on the site. Good luck, looking forward to seeing how it looks in the coming weeks!

      Big Davie, there won’t be changes as such but there will be additional features.

  12. trevor 1 year ago

  13. punterpounder 1 year ago

  16. Gopher 1 year ago

    Congrats on 5 years Mr F.

    I’ve only been on the site a year, I wished I’d found it sooner. Really appreciate all the hard work you and the other tipsters put in.

    Keep up the good work mate, onward and upward.

  17. WasClueless 1 year ago

    Well done MrF … only found this great site about 4 months ago and I have learnt so much … so a huge thank you to you, others who administer the site (when you are walking the dug or golfing) and all the “positive” tipsters!!

  18. John smith 1 year ago

    Well done mr f, an outstanding achievement that will hopefully grow and grow.
    Sounds as though the format of the new site will be revolutionary rather than evolutionary! :)
    Looking forward to it.

  22. Daveyboy 1 year ago

    Top work and top site mr F

  23. Sean Ireland 1 year ago

    Many Congrats Mr F,ive been using your site for most of the time its been going but can honestly state i havent had so much as a sausage from the 10k youve given away but please dont feel compelled into mailing me a £50 free bet 😉
    What id like to see added is something ive mentioned before to you a ouple of years back and yes i understand you already do a lot for charity via the Daily Record but i think itd be great every now and again if the site could use something like a free bet via your good self and contribute ideas { team win/draw/win/goals etc for a footy bank builder or accumulator with any winnings going to a charity nominated by your good self in the name Mrfixitstips site.Its good for moral for everyone to be involved and work as a team for a good cause sometimes instead of just our individual selves. Good Luck and Congrats again Mr F :)

    Paul, 5 years is a long time in the real world – to not only survive but thrive in the cyber-world is a massive reflection of what the site offers and the hard work that goes into it behind the scenes.

    Impossible to get exactly what you ‘want it to look like’ with universal posters but credit where it’s due, there is a top set of lads posting on your site and very little bullsh*t.

    Well done on the 5 years of hard grind and
    looking forward to the next 5.

    All the best bets, Hull.

  25. Hiphopkins 1 year ago

    Nice one Mr F & all the regulars!

  26. Crates 1 year ago

    Thank you Mr F (and all who have contributed) for all your efforts and for putting up with some of the ridiculous disagreements and comments that have occured on here.Some would have thrown in the towel.Here’s to another sucessful 5 years.

    Well done and a big congratulations from me Mr.F on keeping up the amazing work you do day in and day out on this brilliant page!

  29. Stevie Doogan 1 year ago

    Congratulations on a significant milestone. And you’ve not even aged much!

    Well, apart from last season that is. But haven’t we all!

      Stevie, that’s the best avatar I’ve seen on here.
      That comment will earn you another Bovril when you’re sitting at the side of the pitch snapping away.

        Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.
        Hopefully you’ll all love the new features when they are added next month.
        Saturday tips are up – and I’m calling it a night.

  30. Richard 1 year ago

    Again thanks for all the hard work over the years.

    In terms of ideas I would like the ability to follow certain tipsters almost like Twitter so I see when they post. As the site gets busier as it surely will when the league kicks off its easy to miss some of the better tips.

    I would also like a registration system that means our username is unique – still remember the time someone came on spouting abuse using my name and people thought it was me.

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit Author
      Mr Fixit 1 year ago

      Richard, there will be registration and a forum and also a way where you can follow groups of people.

  31. Alan 1 year ago

    Well done to everyone who contributes to this great site.

  32. Alves 1 year ago

    5 yrs?? Doesn’t seem that long but when you think back to the Euro’s/WC it is haha. How tome flies :)

    Looking forward to new site but hopefully same sort of set up

  33. ILoveBetting 1 year ago

    Well done Mr F

    Nice to see you back on top form with the tips, keep it up. Why dont you add a feature where we all can pick and choose a
    super single/double together? many minds are better than 1.

  34. darran 1 year ago

    Well done on the success of the site Mr f, happy “5th” birthday a long time since you heard that haha

  35. linfieldaces 1 year ago

    Super job Mr Fixit been a follower since a fair few bonkers bet tips came in,in the Record some hours have been spent trawling through the site for the best tips of the day.Also has changed my betting outlook from getting chinned by 1 team in a 5timer to just backing fhgs and Mgs.Also il admit I have the odd chuckle at the ones who give off because a certain tip has flopped lol do they not realise it’s a tip and they themselves put their money behind it.Aswell as the few Harpreet bathers who think it’s alright to mouth off.Have to say this site is unrivalled by any other and hope here’s to the next 5 superb years mate keep up that unrivalled great work and taking the dug out for the daily walkies.Hope tomo brings the start of a great season for us all on here.Really we are one big family lol.

  36. dougiec 1 year ago

    Just congratulations MrF.seems enough.

  37. thechief 1 year ago

    Well done on five years Mr F. It has been a pleasure to be part of this site for many of those years and to bring sports like Rugby, Darts and NFL to the site gives fans of other sports a chance to post their thoughts and bets on a thread which as always been a positive one, and a chance to discuss games before, during and after a game.

    It is good to see some old familiar names still around and new ones contributing in what we are all here to do and that is share information, tips and beat the bookie.

    Lets hope for 5 more years :)

  38. mint 1 year ago

  41. Oxyuris 1 year ago

    Congratulations on the milestone Mr F and thanks for both your tips and being a conduit for others. Although the new site is probably very exciting please remember the simplicity and accessibility of this site (along with the great tips) are what makes it what it is.

Hopefully lots more to come in the future
