.. and what it has become?

no bullshit honesty regarding bbing

shit slinging

heated topics

reputation for having the top flamers and personal attacks

uncensored posting (until recently anyway)

I for one am a fan and we lose few from here with everything getbig has to offer.  I view most of the above as positives.

what say you ron?

the honesty is arguable but i def. think so.  esp. regarding steroids.

i'd like you to mention a more impressive board for creative attacks.

Getbig is awesome and Ron's baby, of course he is proud.

Fact- in 1998, when Ronnie won the Olympia, I saw it first on Getbig. I was working for KLA tencor at the time, and the monday after the O remember rushing to my computer at work so I could see the results, and was ecstatic that Ronnie won. All the talk centered around flex, but I felt Ronnie had made so much improvement and was a dark horse, I was really excited to see if he won. Great memory right there.

LoL I do not even know if there was a message board then. I never bothered with forums till elite in 2001. I used Getbig for contest coverage because up till that point I had to wait 3 friggin months to get reports from Flex. And I did too, faithfully for several years I would be excited as hell waiting for Flex to show some Olympia or Arnold reports. Getbig changed everything for me (in a good way).

Ditto. I first saw this site (it was American Bodybuilding back then) in 96, when it had just started, but it was mostly to get contest results (oh brother Grin), since FLEX was about 2 months late with that stuff.

But I didn't stumble upon the forum until 2002/2003. Had no idea back then that I was going to develop a full-blown addiction later on, lol.

ND was born ready, but Hulkster had to wait till Photoshop technology had advanced enough for him to be able to sharpen the 99 Mr Olympia pics, so he could post them 3 times in every page of the truce thread.

You and I have similar stories. Also forgot about the ABB thing! And you are right, it was americanbodybuilding.com back then! Remember the front page banner was the ABB phoenix??? Man time really does get away from you....If I recall, I stumbled onto this site because I went online to check out ABB drinks (think I was looking for mass recovery or similar) and I found this site and said "what the heck? Contest coverage???" and was hooked ever since. Also did not know about the message board for years and years after.

Ron all of this must jog the old memory banks eh? Bet it surprises you some of your members have been around all this time. Getbig is a dinosaur but that proves She has staying power babY!!!!!

I was actually a member from the getgo! I had another nickname then though. Canīt remember. Something lame like I have now. lol. When I think back how the board was 15 years ago I can remember one thing very clear: schmoeing wacking place. GetBig were always in your face and nobody could deal with not being kissed in the ass here. The first pro here was Sean Ray. He said he liked it here because it was "in your face". So much in his face he fled like in 6 months.  Tongue

there's nothing wrong with getbig.  i think some let their gimmicks get out of hand but ron puts them in check with an extended visit to time-out.  the only real decline i've seen is the pros wont post anymore, cant deal with getting rapped by users. shawn and lee were good.  chick hangs in because he enjoys a good fight.  phil heath is an ass.  personally...i didnt take kindly to him posting...he couldnt believe he was posting on this board.

Haha, yes, I remember that - waiting for Flex in November/December just to discover who'd won the Olympia in September.

I don't think I ever used the internet for bodybuilding results until I started using it on a regular basis in around 2001 or 2002. I even didn't know about Getbig until about 2004 after trolling for a few months beforehand. I started off just posting on the training and nutrition boards but then moved quickly onto Gossip & Opinions and I think I received my first brutal owning before I'd even got to 100 posts by a guy called "Sarcasm". Ah, those were the days!

Ah yes, the legendary "BuffGoddess is manlier than..." thread in the V, which had some epic posts like the one below hahahaha


LMAO at this thread!!!!!

Hahahahaha, Ruffboddess is the kind of swimsuit monster that takes all "her" thongs to the local seamstress to get them "adjusted", and when the assistant finally regains her focus after being blinded by the sunlight shining off Ruffboddesses forhead, she asks "Hi there si................ma'am, what can we do for you today?" and "she" replies "I wonder if you can help, I would like to get some zips or buttons sewn on the front of each of these thongs, because sometimes I can't decide whether I want to pretend to be female and pull them down for the toilet, or just whip out my 12" king kongoris and piss up the wall?" as "she" grabs a handful of her throbbing side effect and spits on the counter hahahahahahaha manlier than smelling your fingers afterwards

The bolded part still makes me lmao. The thread got nuked by Ron sometime after I stepped down as mod.

Good times Smiley
