Default Getting MAB Back on Track

Suggestions to bet MAB back on track?

What can I do/we do?

I've had a long year. Many life changes and a relocation. Things are finally settling down.

This is just my 2c, and I'm hardly even a lifter atm :/, but sure...


It would be great to see more of you around here, Mr. Bearded Beast. Not criticising, just noting it. I totally get that you've been extremely busy, and priorities are what they are in life. Even so, it would be a good thing.

I don't see anything else "wrong" with this place. It seems to draw good folks to it, same as ever, and there's so much less bullshit around here than most other sites (that I've seen).

Anyhow, good to see ya again!

Is it really off track? I tend to think forums in general are on the decline, all though I could be wrong. Either way, this is still a good place, with good people.

I think you have a powerful influence when you are present, so that would only help. Not that I am criticizing you for not being around or trying to throw shade. I am just saying you have a strong personality and your presence is going to have a positive impact.

Bring back the infamous shout box. I forged a lot of good relationships in the shout box. It allowed an interaction that was a bit more personal. I got to know a lot of the good guys and gals around here. Just a suggestion, I think it could help.

Nudes. Definitely nudes.

Whatever happens, I'm on board and will try to start posting more often. I faded away for a while.

I dont think its off track. Boards are on a decline in general for what I have seen but MAB has a lot more traffic then most of those. You have built a good board Steve.

Is it possible to re-activate that email notification when someone posted anything in thread(s) we follow ... We still get notifications but only when someone send a PM ... it was very convenient ... besides that re-activate that "Challenge" and "Member of the Month" thread ...

This is the only forum I use. I like it because it isn't full of trolls, guys talking down to each other to make them feel better and the other bs we've all seen on most of the forums. I did like the shoutbox but I don't think there is anything wrong with M&B. Obviously female nudes would be a plus but the forum is on the Internet and I've heard rumors that there may possibly be a way to find nude pictures somewhere else on the Internet. I'm willing to help or contribute if needed to improve the forum if needed.

I vote
More BtB presence ( not nudes )
Bring back the old shoutbox
Bring back MoM
More bacon

Also , wouldn't mind seeing links to current Comps ( PL, Oly, Strongman) and maybe some equipment reviews
