I tend to frown on many forums which over-moderate the users, but I think maybe VBB needs a little moderation work. Some of the threads and posts here are just over-the-top and frankly a little crazy. I know it's hard to moderate 'crazy' but perhaps we could have a 'unique ideas' section of the forum?

We could use more members too.... this place has been thinning out.

I kind of feel like it's the crazies that drive people away, but maybe I'm off base with that.

Yes...more moderation...and more active members. I belong to probably over 50 forums, and this one does get a bit "heated" at times...more than need be - more than most forums I frequent.

The "crazies" don't bother me though isn't there a way to moderate known "crazies" messages to prevent them from being posted until they are approved or never approved for that matter?

I wish there was more chatter here though especially about bodybuilding and what works for everyone.

There is always veganfitness.net. Most of you post there already. It is filled with intelligent people who live on planet Earth

Most of our "crazies" came here after being kicked off of veganfitness.net.

Since their content tends to have more, well, content, I would offer that as an argument for *slightly* tighter moderation.

I used to post on there a couple of years ago but honestly I never really felt like I fit in there. I found it was really endurance sport as well as powerlifting focused. Is that still the case? I guess I could just go and check it out for myself.

That is still the case.

On the other hand, when was the last time conversations about bodybuilding or fitness dominated this board?

I have never had trouble getting decent advice about exercise issues on veganfitness.net.

You will recognize many names there: Fallen Horse, myself, Vegan Essentials, vegimator and a whole lot of vbbfers who left a long time ago.

Give it another try :)

Well I don't want to move people away from this forum at all, since I tend to prefer the community here to the one there (part of it is the endurance/powerlifting ideology that I don't fit into at VF). I just think we need to figure out a way to mark some threads as 'hypothetical science' and some threads as 'normal science'....
