    I think that no one is posting. It appears to have slowed down quite a bit. Iím speaking for Obs but I have also noticed the slowdown. Most of the vets have gone into hiding. LOL

    It happens after people lose their New Year resolution drive. It will pick back up. Usually does this every year.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    It's social media, it killed most of the online forums. . . Kinda sucks tho, since semi reputable PED info is tough to track down.

    Maybe almost is right and its just a timing thing. Just seems to me that new guys dont post more than once or twice, maybe one thread then they get beat down and you dont hear from them again. Not saying constantly, and no data to back it up except what i see, but how many new guys you see start a thread, then dont even respond to some of the comments afterward, and they are gone.

    Alot of people are turned off because they dont get the enabling answers they seek imo. Im sure the advice givers would rather the 19 year old hell bent on running aas left in a huff rather than being given dangerous info, carrying out the cycle and sticking around.

    No, by all means I get you Zues. Im not sayin that alot of guys want to hear what they want to hear, and when they dont they split. And by no means do i think anyones advice should shift from being safe or sound advice. But in the last few wks ive brought it up a few times in different threads, about the way some people come off, talk to others, spew names, etc.

    Im not a 19yo kid, but even me- if i came to this forum and maybe asked a stupid or uneducated question about something i obviously wasnt knowledgeable about, and got some smartass answer callin me stupid, id blast and not come back either. Theres plenty of space in the world wide web to find info and talk about this stuff.

    And i guess maybe i have a different viewpoint. Personally i think alot of the young guys that co e asking uneducated questions, are gonna cycle or try aas regardless of whether they are told its a bad idea. I dont know, but would guess, that alot of them hqve either already started when they get here, or are hell bent on doing it regardless of what someone on a forum tells them. If that is the case, my personal view, is that if i cant stop them or change their mind, its prob still better off to help them alomg then to take the chance they end up getting their advice from some rock dumb dude from the gym or somewhere else. Guess thats just me

    Completely understand that point of view. Im am a 19 yo lolol.

    Its just the 'im doing it anyway' attitude doesnt quite site great with me and im sure others also. Alot of guys on here refuse to answer young guys questions through their own morals. Which is fair enough.

    The information is here to cycle safely without any futher input, its just whether people sre willing to dig for it.


    That board would be vastly more popular if we turned into s source board or enabled every young/morbidly obese member into cycling.

    I like what this board stands for. Its different to others.


    Id rather morals werent sacraficed for the sake of revenue. But bills are bills so...

    Just my 2 cents on the topic lol

    Lots of facts in this thread... we need to be more friendly for sure...

    and yes if we were a source board we would have more traffic... but is that what people want...


    information is here people just have to ask and or search... doesn't matter the age the info is here and has been asked a 100 different ways if not more!

    we need to have more convo starters that is for sure... I miss the days when people just started threads to talk or tell what has been going on in life haha

    Just saying

    Ur right admin. And i dont think becoming a source board is the type of traffic most of us want here, i can agree with that.

    I get your point Zues, i really do. The whole, im doimg what i want anyway attitude is t my favorite either. Ive got a 15 yo daughter now so i see that attitude every now and then and it makes my blood boil.

    I guess maybe the way i see it, theres a fine line between helping young guys who are gonna do this to their body regardless of anyones opinion, and enabling young guys who shouldnt be doing this to their body.

    But like you said, bills are bills. So it brings us back to a thread from a while ago, when it was asked what people would like to see here, how to bring in new members, etc. Its a tough question, and probably a few good answers, but a few bad ones too.

    I will say, i havent been here as lomg as most of you guys, but i like it here more than others ive checked out. Some of the other boards may draw more people, source boards, etc, but i really cant stand the way they are run

    How the muslims hordes want to kill us?

    How immigrants need to fit in or fuck off?

    How stupid africans are that they cant feed the 10 kids they already have but still think its a good idea to have another 5?

    How the globalist elitis are destroying masculinity and trying to turn us all in soft cocks?

    How I love gold,silver and crypto?

    How the european white is being outbred in massive numbers and unless we make our stand against the globalists we will be gone?

    How every non western country is a third world shit hole?

    How badly I would suck off trump and take a bullet for him?

    Nothing wrong with members posting up conversation starters, BUT, there's good and bad in every race, religion, and belief system.
    It makes little sense to lump everyone from individual races, religions, or beliefs into a shit heap based solely on those criteria.

    It's just life

    "Back in my day" - oh yeah. . . Forums were the #1 thing. Since there was no intsashit or FaceBook. . . . And, it's is true - thanks to the googlelator now you can find damn near any info you need, since it has been asked numerous times.

    I agree about social media. Facebook = Fakebook + drama.
    At least F*ckbook serves a purpose.

    Its not easy. Theres constant advancement in social media, etc. Samsons right, you can google and find thousands of threads and forums to browse, join, get info from, or whatever u want. Before that, yeah, forums were cutting edge. But as with everything, you have to keep up or become extinct. I think the hard part now for forums is to know how to keep up and stay relevant. In the end, its gaining new members and obviously sponsors/income.

    I'm gonna get burned for this, but one problem is you can't talk about the fat burning properties of aas. Y'all can deny all you want, but people will search for the truth, and go were they are hearing it. I'm not suggesting one should use tren to lose weight, but to say it doesn't burn fat is a lie!

    those are the ones just looking for a source and as soon as they learn we are not a source board they take off for greener pastures...in my opinion that's the number one reason that's why we loosened up the rules a bit as of late...

    A friend told me to try Costa Rica and panama in October. He is a quiet vacationer like myself so I intend to try them both.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

    Yeah thats a good point GB. No doubt that accounts for a good number. I was more referring to some of the guys that come actually lookin to get some knowledge and figure things out. Those are the guys we would want around here.

    And i say that, because it happened to me and a few other decent new guys that ive talked to, and it is a real turn off. I got thick skin so didnt really bother me, and i figured i would just keep my mouth shut, but it does bother some.

    One thing that does not help is peoples busy spells. I have noticed with my small business people act in waves and drives.

    I will go weeks without a call in the winter and the one day ten customers will call without rhyme or reason. Other forums have been slow lately too.

    Wait until you find the correlation between your annual revenue (and most businesses) and interest rates... though a lot is natural still.
