I would like to see a recipe section. If you want to put all the macro's great. I get sick of eating the same thing week in week out. I am sure everyone can add something worth eating to this section. How many people do you think google eating healthy on a daily basis. I think it should be only recipes not loaded with questions and comments. We know what we like and can sub or leave out whatever we want.

That's a great idea Beam.

My question...would you guys prefer a recipe section on the site, or as a sub-forum with recipe categories such as "beef", "soups", etc...?

Sounds good. It will be better organized that way. We'll have to start a forum thread for recipes, and make sure we agree on categories.

It is a pain, but will be very cool when done. And I want all exercises...powerlifting and strongman...no one has those.

I would love to. The development on this would cost probably well over 10K unless I could find a kicka$$ forum modification.

That's definitely on the to do list. Another good idea.

Have videos linked to Youtube or wherever for each athlete, photo gallery, etc.
Another great idea. No one has bios on powerlifters, Oly lifters and strongmen.

And call the smiley The Doc. That's just my opinion though haha...
Lol...we'll have to have a town hall meeting on that

There is a social network that would integrate with Vbulletin. It's called PHPFox and runs $300. It would cost me maybe $600 to get it up and integrated, but users would have everything from blogs to Facebook/BB.com style profiles.

Here are some features:

Features phpFox - Social Networking Script

Any thoughts? I don't have $600 to pull out of my butt right now, but where there's a will there's a way...

I dont think I have much to add over and above what everyone else has said. I notice Doc already mentioned an events calendar. Was just thinking one feature to add in the events calendar would be to allow members to update a "personal" event calendar whereas they can upload if they are traveling someplace etc. What I am getting at is such a tool can actually help members meet face to face and may be have a workout / PWO meal together, especially everyone thinks of this site as a fairly close community.

I was actually hoping to talk to a GL and Ben if they happen to be in Houston until my October conference plan over there got scuppered
