    Really GREAT search feature coming soon to Steroid.com Forums

    Hey guys,

    Things have been really crazy over in my camp lately, but I have been working on a GREAT "Search" program that acts like Google's search (when it fills in popular terms and phrases) and it will become active very soon. If a viewer wants to find out about "Winstrol " and simply types in the word "Winstrol" into the search bar, they will be given many different suggestions for that term that are always updating by popularity. For example:

    If someone types in "Winstrol" they will see suggestions such as "Can I drink Winstrol" "How much Winstrol is a good dose" "Is Winstrol good when taken by itself" Plus 20 or more other suggestions with each and every phrase or term entered into the search box.

    The suggestions will be shown under the search box and the viewer can find TONS of information that he or she may not have thought about unless it was suggested. We have been programming this feature for several months and are now working on the final touches to make it work well. This will really help our viewers who dont want to become members, but want to read and keep to themselves. With over 6.5 million posts on this forum, this tool will really become a fantastic tool to help educate our audience.

    Note: The search box will become a lot bigger and be moved to a much more appropriate location so that it is easy to use and understand.

    As many of you know... interaction with our members is SO IMPORTANT, but a tool like this will be invaluable to those people who do not want to interact, but do want to research. Be on the lookout for this feature soon and as always, I look for any feedback from the members to continue to advance the functionality of the site.

    Loving our forum members and the maturity many of you bring to our home!!! Please, continue to work on being more inviting and helpful to the new members who join and ask questions. I KNOW we all hear the same things over and over again and we answer those same questions at the same rate, but its important that we continue to be helpful and inviting to these guys. If YOU all lead with respect, helpfulness and maturity it will continue to set the bad ass nature of what we are here.

    Remember, We dont have 200 sources and reps here busting their ass to help members for the sole reason of selling their gear and lining their pockets, so we have to make a lot more of an effort as individuals to go out of our way to help. In MY mind, the information given by people like YOU, with NO AGENDA is so much more valuable than when provided by people with an agenda.

    Under the current state of our industry and the bullshit that is going on with all of these source boards and dangerous websites, we become MORE and MORE of an industry leader than any one of us ever thought we would become. I could go on and on about many of you, but to sum it up... We have some of the greatest people in the industry in our community because we do this for ONE REASON.... We care.

    Bravo... I could not be more proud of what we ALL created here. For you long time members, we sure have come A LONG WAY haven't we?! I was 21 years old 18 years ago when I started in this. Look how FAR we have come

    Sounds like an excellent tool to have, it should help many out.

    I've been a member of a few forums over the years and NOTHING comes close to this site. I am proud and feel privileged to be a member and help members in any way I can.

    I certainly second every bit of that phrase above!

    Thanks again for all the hard work you(BC) and YOUR staff has done!!! Along with all the great members here that just want to help in any way shape or form! Thx for the opportunity and to be a member here truly is an honor!

    I too could go on and on but the members who've been here for a longer time surely makes/help molded this community to what it is now! THE MOST BAD ASS FORUM THERE IS!!!!

    Its people like you Marcus that make this site. Look at your membership here... You dont rep anyone. You dont get paid. You dont have an agenda and yet you have been here for 10 years. You help because you care and you love this lifestyle. Try to find people who share that same passion anywhere and for any topic and you will find success. I put money into this site and had some vision (much of that vision was shaped by OTHER GREAT people) when I created it, but its the time, love and care by our amazing members that truly make this place special. We have withstood the test of time and we have earned every bit of our success. The only person who has had an agenda was me.... I am the one profiting from this company. But, people like you who come here day in and day out to help others because you WANT to is what is more impressive than anything.

    Guys, the internet is changing and ability to compete with a website like ours is getting more and more difficult. The simple fact is, if we continue to bring on good members who join and interact for the right reasons, we wont need 2000 active members each day to be respected. In fact, it has NOTHING to do with the "amount" of members and visitors that are online (which ALL of these smaller sites just cant understand!). It has to do with the QUALITY of members and the maturity of the community.

    Let them source, let them become political, let them talk shit and fight about shit in the open. Forums are dying and its because of those reasons I just mentioned that people do not want to interact on forums. Quality over quantity....

    Ive never seen a more mature and respectful community. We have a bit of an "EGO" with some of our members and WE ARE A VERY INTIMIDATING GROUP OF PEOPLE that scare a lot of people from joining, but if we ever focus on fine tuning our personalities to be more tolerant and not so judgmental, we have the makings of a truly WORLD CLASS FORUM and I am talking about a forum in ANY niche.

    Thank you for your comments its much appreciated and also your support over the years from yourself and Admin. I've been lifting weights for 30 years and its been one hell of a journey, ive had many highs and extreme lows and I find this forum a great platform to express every aspect of that journey.

    Ive been asked from guys from other forums to join their web sites and ive also been asked by sources to push their brand, I was even given 1000ius of hgh once to keep my mouth shut about certain things because what i was saying on this forum was effecting their sales. I shouted even harder and made it common knowledge what they did and said to me lol.

    This forum is simply the best, that's it. Its honest, direct and is without doubt the best steroid /bodybuilding platform there is on the internet. If anyone wants to know anything related to this sport they should join and ask because you'll never get better advice anywhere else than here.

    It's an honor being here BC! I could not imagine not being able to interact with staff and all the members of this forum. Think about it, we get to interact with people from literally all around the world and expand our knowledge on a daily basis! So much education to be had in one place. Plus have a little bit of fun along the way. Can't ask for much more than that, imho.

    Simply a great place to be!

    Thanks BC!

    Thank you for the comments guys! The tool will be live in a few weeks and it should be ridiculously helpful for those that want to research.

    We will continue to try to fine tune the website and keep it ahead of the curve for you guys...

    Really looking forward to seeing this implemented. It's great to see you coming on here, throwing some great ideas out there, asking for feedback, listening, and then actually DOING something with the suggestions. Most places would never ask, if they did they surely wouldn't follow through, not so here.
    It truly is an honor to be a member here and a part of this place.

    I try to spend at least a few months a year trying to improve the site and keep up with the internet trends (such as mobile view feature, mobile aps, update profiles (we have MANY new profiles being UPDATED within the next few months), upgrade servers, etc...

    Having members who have been here for many years and getting new members who truly appreciate and look after our community makes it well worth staying in touch with the members and doing what I can to make it function better for you all.

    Update: The search feature we have been working on is LIGHTING fast and should be made live on Monday. This should really be great for all of those lurkers who dont want to interact with the community, but do what to look up popular topics.

    Once live, I would appreciate any feedback or issues. As usual, we will be tweaking and adding more and more to this feature to make steroid .com more user friendly.

    Thanks!
