T Nation

The Author's Locker Room


#1

Starting on Monday, October 24th, T-Nation will begin a new forum called "The Author's Locker Room."

This is where many of T-Nation's authors will hang out and answer questions.

Whereas the old Prime Time feature restricted authors to a 7PM to 10PM time slot, the Author's Locker Room is open all the time.

Whenever a T-Nation author is on-line, his name will pop up in a box on the left hand side of the screen that will be similar to the old Prime Time box.

T-Nation writers will be able to start new threads in the Locker room and T-Nation members will be able to ask them questions.

Readers, however, won't be able to start new threads; only respond to those that have been initiated by the writers.

Hopefully, this will make the authors more accessible to those T-Nation members who weren't able to log on during the old Prime Time hours.

So make sure to check it out!

Is there any site in the world better than T-Nation. I don't think so. You guys and gals are awesome!!


#3

Great addition TC, I'm looking forward to it!


#4

AWESOME. With my schedule this will be COOL I hardly ever got to catch Prime time Now WATCH OUT all the GURU's


#5

This is perfect -- no more trying to guess which forum the Guru posted on the next day!


#6

This is sweet! I was always coming in late to prime time and was spending a lot of time catching up before I would consider asking a question.

It will make it a lot easier now.

Thanks, T-Nation.

always gets better


#8

Awesome, I was worried after the announcement of no more Prime Time, we would have no more access to these brilliant minds. Keep up the good work gents.


#9

You think to yourself....it can't get any better than this, but then you guys make it even better! Thank you from a loyal reader and customer.


#10

This site is so good, I'm surprised it hasn't been banned by the government yet.


#11

I have a suggestion for another "feature" along these lines.

It would be nice to have a "Biography" link for each author so that we, as readers, could have quick acess to the background and biographies of each author.

For instance, say I just read another EDT article from Charles Staley and wanted to know more about him or his company. I could click on the Authors drop-down on the left, and choose "Biographies" where I could choose Charles name and be presented with a short article highlighting his background, where he is located, educational history, degrees, years training, certifications, link to his web site... You get the idea.

Sound plausible?


#12

I agree! A bio with links to books/DVDs and websites the authors have been involved with would be awesome.


#13

TC. You crazy fuck!

How are you gonna top THIS now???

This site is just too awsome.

...and it just gets better and better and...

I think just about every article I've read on here contains a little blurb at the end about the author and a link to his website (if any). For instance, JB's seven habits article (just to pick one at random):
http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=459493
If you scroll down to the end of the article there is a short bio with a link to his website and his email address.

That's a great add-on! I wish you a lot of sold suplements :slight_smile:


#16

I guess I can stop lamenting the loss of Prime Time! :wink:


#17

This is way better than prime time because it allows the authors to pop in and out as their schedule allows. Good call, TC.

Hey TC, I miss your daily trivia question that you used to have on your blog. If you don't start this up again I may take it upon myself to start a daily trivia thread or something.


#18

Will there be an archive of these threads made by the coaches?


#19

Very good idea. The constant improvements to this site truely kick ass! I have always missed the forums by the authors due to the fact that i am 8 hrs ahead of your time here in Kosovo. Maybe now i can get lucky and catch some of our greats! Thank You
