Thumbs up Transformation Contest Thoughts

Months back, when this forum was still relatively new, we started talking about the possibility of a transformation contest.

While this forum isn't large by any means, but it is growing at a steady rate. I want to throw out this idea once again.

1) Would you get involved with a transformation contest?
2) Do you believe the forum is big enough for a transformation contest?
3) How long do you think a transformation contest should run?
4) What types of prizes would you like to see MAB give away?

Please be brutally honest with your feedback.

1. Yes, contests are always a lot of fun and keep people motivated and on their A game.

2. Sure, this forums is not big by any means but it seems like we can get enough dedicated members to have a good fun contest.

3. I think it should at least run 3 months.

4. I honestly wouldn't care I just think it would be a fun idea for members to push each other and strive for their goals.

how would the voting go as far as contestants bulking vs cutting?

2) Not really, there is only a small handful of the registered guys who are on regularly.
3) 2-3months

Those are details that we would probably iron out once we have enough interest.

I also thought about the possibility of rewarding each entrant that sees the contest through with some supplement cash - provide some incentive not to bail out.

Now, now...a small handful is 7. We have over 35 registered members on each day posting, and it grows weekly. Stop kicking my puppy you mean head!

1)i'd be involved, however, i dont have a real big goal as far as physique goes (im just kind of recomping)
2)yes and its growing all the time. also maybe this contest would attract more people
3)some where in 3-6 months or both one winner at 3 and another at 6
4)maybe some sort of package- t-shirts, a shaker cup, other small merchandise, and supp money.

Yes, absolutely.

Yes, absolutely.


3) How long do you think a transformation contest should run?

No less than 3 months, but I think a 6 month time span could really give people a chance to do some serious work. A 3 month time span is really just limited to cutting, with maybe a little buildup. A 6 month time span could allow people a chance to grow, and cut.

Further down the road, with enough interest, and some more membership, maybe we could have our own yearly online classic contest.



4) What types of prizes would you like to see MAB give away?

This one is the hardest for me to answer. I've been sitting here for more than a few minutes thinking about it. Most people will probably says supps and stuff like that. Thats fine and is always a good item, as everybody uses something.

The bigger picture for myself, and maybe I'm alone in feeling this way, but, I don't really need anything as a prize. This site is free, and you have more information available here than most people can find in a bookstore. You offer your time, and knowledge unselfishly to all who ask for your help. The best prize for me, is just being able to do this sport, and make myself better.




Please be brutally honest with your feedback.

I'm probably alone in my opinion on a few points, but thats ok.
