T Nation

We Can Rebuild It: How Would You Revamp T-Nation?

Do you really love T-Nation?

Do you really care about T-Nation?

Do you want to see T-Nation go higher?

I was thinking about T-Nation and how much I truly enjoy this site. I enjoy the people here. I enjoy the articles. I enjoy the motivation here.

I was thinking how could we improve this site and/or the forums?

I think T-Nation could be as the #1 muscle building site on the web (currently as of 2/27/12, the site ranks 3,207). Men’s Health is ranked #626. With the quality of people here and the authorship, we surely could get this site up to #1.

So, I reach out to you all and we could pass this on to the powers that be here at T-Nation and see if they can implement those changes.

Are you game?

Let’s start:

  1. What does T-Nation do well?

I wish when we linked a picture it could go UNDER the text if we like and not always at the top.

Some attempts at witty photographic retorts don’t work out well with the pic coming first.

MOAR CAT PICS!!!

You need to recalibrate your awesome-ositor device Nards…we were at 99999% Efficiency…NOW we’re at 100000%!!!

True…I keep my screen at -1% awesomivity to protect myself from overly-huge doses of testosterizing mega agents.

Cool, a marketing spy!

3,208 doesn’t feel good, does it?

So long as Men’s Health talks about fashion for half the magazine and assumes that all readers work in an office and play pick-p basketball every day …possibly for 50 years.

LOL…reigning in the chaos

Staying on topic…

What does T-Nation do well?

I think T-Nation does the following extremely well:

  1. Free articles by the best trainers in the fitness industry…period.

  2. Livespill is amazing as a communication tool on the site and I like how this allows the author and the reader a more personal touch.

  3. The various forum topics are interesting and varied enough to suit others’ tastes.

I can’t think of a better way to take useful conversation/information and make it completely unavailable to anyone not directly following the spill or trying to reference it later.
