  1. Just an FYI/observation here take it for what it's worth.

    There is a ton of information already here and honestly I have only seen a handful of questions that haven't ever been asked previously. If you have a question I'll bet that it's been asked before, in some cases repeatedly. So instead of waiting on a response do some investigation work, READ the FAQ, do a SEARCH, then if you can't find it ask away.

    If you don't know how to use the search button PM me I'll walk you through it.

    It may be a good idea to sticky this?

    Yeah. Although there are quite a bunch of normally patient guys here, when the same old question is asked for the 67th time or what have you, it just gets old pretty fast and is sometimes frustrating. Especially when the guy asking the same old question for the first time in his life can't seem to get the answer which has been explained over and over a hundred times in the forum already - better to just do a search like Dan suggested and learn even more stuff.

    JV is right. When I first found this site, I read and read for probably a couple of weeks before I even registered... and even then, I still lurked quite a while, reading everything I could, before posting anything at all.

    The problem is the "obvious beginner questions" bury the better more technical ones. There is nothing wrong with being a beginner. But you got to do your homework first. Can't just jump in asking questions and let other people do the "work" for you. We want and need beginners -- but they should not swamp the system. What does SD mean anyway?

    haha

    I think most of my questions were more personalized to routine, diet, exercises, etc.. but I'll admit I probably asked a question or three that I could have searched for.

    I don't deny I'm guilty too. However, I agree with Bob Evans and would like to point out yet another time that most of the "obvious beginner questions" are answered in the FAQ. It's been an invaluable source of information to me.

    It may be a good idea to start a begginer's section, where the FAQ's and all thenecessary minimum's are available straight off the bat :D

    Well, we are not going to just spoon feed the guys after all God helps those who help themselves, I am a great believer in that! [​IMG]

    I definitely agree - the main HST forum should be split into a beginner's and an advance section. It's worth a shot to see if it works.

    ummmmm. What's a PM? Is it the equivalent of a #1? You know...like when a #2 is called a BM?    [​IMG]

    If so, please keep your PM's (and your BM's) to yourself.  [​IMG]

    BTW Dan, there is a discussion going on the testosterone Nation forum about Max-Stimulation. That's pretty [​IMG]

    Pretty much the same for me...and I always say &quot;I think&quot; or IMHO when I'm not certain of something. I save time on the web by not reading any of the NOOB questions, so I vote for the advanced section too.
