I mean this with only the most positive of intentions and good will toward T-Nation. Also, this has to have been brought up somewhere either here or in a meeting at some time.
What does everybody think of a “General Fitness” forum?
This would give the “other guys” somewhere to congregate away from the Bodybuilding forum where it would be understood up front that they don’t wanna be huge. They would be safe from ridicule and we could have the Bodybuilding forum free from the less ambitious amongst us.
Actually it’s clear that the people for whom physique pursuits form a significant part of their daily decision making are now the “other guys”, but the Bodybuilding forum is already there.
I’m trying to propose a way that we can all coexist in a more harmonious fashion. I fear that if that does not happen the T-Nation forums will be exclusively populated by guys with less than 50 posts who want nothing more than tips on getting in better shape.
These are not sub human beings who should be shot at dawn, but they are diluting the Bodybuilding forum to the point of making the name laughable and are driving anybody with even above average goals elsewhere.
This obviously is not my site and you can tell me to ph**K off if you want to, but I thought it was worth suggesting. The “just look good nekkid” guys are not going away and, nor should they necessarily, but doesn’t it make some sense to find somewhere more practical and comfortable to house them?
