After all these years what still makes Getbig so special?
« on: November 06, 2010, 05:06:55 PM »
I peak in on alot of other bodybuilding sites and while there may be sites with more people than this one, this one site consistently gets brought up on other sites...Usually with disdain...point is people are talking...We all know that certain people with power monitor this site and cry to Yaroni when they don't like a thread...

Is it because Yaroni is the allows the freest speech out there?
Is it the colorful cast of characters? Goodrum, Pre-child 240 (Sorry Rob)...
GH15?
Sarcasm,Sqaudfather, QuakerOats?
The history and stories?

All of the above?  Discuss....

With that said, I wonder what the first Bodybuilding forum was...I'm guessing Getbig or elitefitness...I was on both and quit EF when they started charging years ago.

The diversity might be a one thing. You can love bodybuilding, hate bodybuilding, train or not train, and people will make fun of you but still think of you as one of them.

yep it's all a mix of fucked up shit that makes it great.  Not too much drama right now though.  :-\

I was hoping that a Fat Alex vs. Disturbia war would have happened but it simmered down.  Both are ruthless getbiggers.

It is perhaps the only website on the internet where every member owns a helicopter, two houses, or most likely all three. Oh, and a 400+ bench press too.

With that said, I wonder what the first Bodybuilding forum was...I'm guessing Getbig or elitefitness...I was on both and quit EF when they started charging years ago.

One of the first bodybuilding/strength training groups I ever visited was Misc.fitness.weights 12 or so years back, it was sorta like if you slammed getbig, bodybuilding.com, and goheavy.com all together. There were very few groups back then, so everyone from Pat Arnold to Fred Hatfield to Vic Richards to Craig Titus to Dan Duchaine was forced to mingle. You had no moderation, so you had trolls galore, lots of cross posting wars,  etc...., but the thing that made it special was that no one was afraid to call out anyone on bullshit. Sadly, with the advent of regular forums and spambots, the news groups slowly died off.

I think that's the reason why I come here, it's the closest to the good old days I could find. Overmoderation and small audiences have killed off lots of forums over the years, but this is one that still seems decent in that regard.

The meaning of life will remain a mystery.  But we are closing in on it day by day here at getbig.

The legendary getbig think-tank.  I honestly think this forum will stand the test of time and mankind.

Aliens will continue it when internet reaches other galaxies, faraway reaches of the twinkling starlights warming glimmers of thongs and ripped muscle mass.

Wiggs is cool.  As soon as I am able to I am going to Vegas to smoke weed with him and then we'll find Keith, dead on the floor of a buffet.
