No loop holes, no shenanigans...simply just a way for someone to show their appreciation and say thanks.

It's mandatory to post a pic of the free sh*t you got as a thank you. If you do not, chances are you wont get free sh*t again. It's a way for companies to advertise in the main supp section and it's annoying as fuk.

You first part of your post is legit, that is the way it should be. A company shouldn't need this petty pseudo marketing tactics to be successful, if a product is good a customer will buy.

Why on earth would I be jealous for? You think I use any of the supplements that are posted in those threads? come on man. Just thought I would make a thread about it cause lets be honest here, more people than just me are thinking the same thing.

Not sure if this is directed at me, but the fact is I don't visit these boards anywhere near as often these days. This place use to be ripe with awesome information and discussion on supplements. These days, you go against the grain with the pack and you get trampled all over.

And maybe you should appreciate a bit of opposing views rather than ask why they come. Why do you workout? why do you go fishing?

I agree the opposing views, I think that people that are not a rep should be outspoken, and critical of products they either don't understand, or think is downright crap. It keeps things honest. My issues lie with people who just bust balls, without any reason, than strictly trolling.

We are all here to learn, esp in this section, its not the misc, and I like to think of it better than that.

I've been buying off bb.com for years, and if Cmike wants to send me a thank you care package you can be damn sure i'm gonna show them a lot of love. But this is a bb.com forum.

I do think, however, that the huge flux of 10+ companies sending out goodies is not good for the section. I remember when people got stuff and didn't make threads, just said thank you, posted a review, and went on their way. Now at times half the forum is filled with nonsense. I love that companies show love to loyal supporters, that's awesome. But maybe there needs to be a better way to handle this?

This forum in general has been dumbed down to an all-time low. It's a circle jerk most of the time with very little information actually being shared. Rep rules and cry-baby companies have stifled a lot of scientific debate, and many posters with actual knowledge rarely if ever post here anymore. That is not good.

To be fair logging has drastically died down. A lot of hand out palm up now it seems. Most of the people who were good/willing loggers are now reps. Whom aren't allowed to log. I'm in no way condoning people posting a picture of a sample packet and a shaker in a shout out thread though.

this would actually be really funny.

"Thanks for the garbage-ass package, Mike! This stuff is terrible!"

Yeah, like, it's cool and all that people are getting free stuff, and I certainly understand wanting to shout people out for their generosity, but the same six [totally arbitrary number] people jerking each other off over how much free stuff they always get is just clutter at this point IMO. I realize there are two factors that largely contribute to this:
1. For whatever reason, the world seems to be leaking into the supps section and nine out of ten threads are "WHAT'S THE BEST PREWORKOUT" and "DO I NEED CREATINE? I'M NINE YEARS OLD AND WANT TO GET RIPPED IN A WEEK" and that kind of stuff.
2. More than half of the regulars are company reps, who are forbidden from being critical of other companies' products, which in turn makes it kind of tough to actually suggest and discuss products honestly.

So like, what else is there to discuss, really? I get it. I'm not mad about the shout-outs, but I miss people actually talking about stuff instead of every thread just being people high-fiving each other over how much money they can spend on supplements and reps pimping their newest products or the newest products in the store. I would imagine that's much more the source of OP and TP's frustration.

Hence why i mentioned the decline of this forum. Rep rules and whiney garbage companies have ruined things. If you want advice on how to take creatine or what protein powder to buy, you've come to the right place. If you want scientific breakdown of competing products... not going to happen. If you want a knowledgeable logger to give honest opinion on a supplement, not going to happen.

I'm surprised at how few people apply for logging opportunities. 10 minutes of your day in exchange for a chance to try out a product for free, and also to get input on your training? The last log I did was 16 pages long and I got so much feedback about my training, and a ton of useful suggestions. Not to mention I got to try out a product that there's no way I would have bought on my own, and I ended up really liking.

Thinking about it more it is incredibly difficult to not open Pandora's box by allowing company reps to critique other products, but possibly building in a disclaimer that companies must adhere to and prevent the ability of one company to sue another for anything posted.

I dunno lol, just IMO of course something needs to be done to bring back some life and discussion to this section. I actually credit bb.com forums to have a big impact of getting myself to where I am today. It would be incredibly sad if others don't receive the same opportunity in the future

The blacklist is as prevalent as it is used, it's all up to rep nominations. It's not the reps getting upset, they are just posting on behalf of the company and they don't enjoy seeing the negative feedback. I dunno, I put a lot of work into trying to improve things about a year ago and not sure it did much.

Yeah, I feel like there's gotta be a happy medium between a free-for-all (which I would find entertaining but realize has lots of legal ramifications and is therefore impossible) and the rules that are in place now. I just don't know where that medium is and where those lines are, nor am I sure how much more work that puts on the moderators.

The blacklist is as prevalent as it is used, it's all up to rep nominations. It's not the reps getting upset, they are just posting on behalf of the company and they don't enjoy seeing the negative feedback. I dunno, I put a lot of work into trying to improve things about a year ago and not sure it did much.
Make a subsection called "Shoutouts for the free ****."

I'm surprised at how few people apply for logging opportunities. 10 minutes of your day in exchange for a chance to try out a product for free, and also to get input on your training? The last log I did was 16 pages long and I got so much feedback about my training, and a ton of useful suggestions. Not to mention I got to try out a product that there's no way I would have bought on my own, and I ended up really liking.

Very true... I like to read the logs to get info on products that i am interested in. I have only done it 3 or 4 times, and each time is a learning experience.... but my last log, I actually got excited and went ahead and ordered an additional 2 bottles of product and promised to log those too. A week later I was notified that the rep program was discontinued and I was no longer obligated to continue. So I basically got it for nothing, but I continued for an extra month on my own. Got 25k views but with the reps gone, there was not really alot of convo to keep it interesting.

I guess my point is that not everyone is just looking for a free handout!!!

How do you propose that come back? With the litigious BS I, and pretty much anyone who would talk negatively/accurately would have to deal with, I don't see any way.

As a rep, I'd love to be able to continue to log products or make reviews. There are a bunch of products that I recently purchased that I'd love to leave positive reviews for. Unfortunately, by letting reps review products, you are going to get a shady few who will go and leave a bunch of 1s on competing products.

Would allowing reps to leave verified reviews in the store work? At least that way it would prevent people from leaving false negative reviews. You could also include the stipulation that reps can't leave reviews for their own products.

The thing is, anyone with half a brain can see a rep shill review from a mile away, why not be reactive and just enforce server penalties for them when they occur?

But a general consumer who doesn't visit the forums wouldn't know if someone is a company rep or not. I could easily write a convincing negative review, and give the product a 3/10 and no one would be any the wiser.

Thats why i said reactive. A mod can ban and delete BS threads. Kind of like a new user who makes a thread about a prohibited substance, he isn't banned from making a account he is banned as a result of the thread.

Most people that apply for logs are just looking for free product.


There are people who fraud about said log and then offer said product for trade on other boards.

If you can't post a decent review, you don't deserve anything free. Period.

Shame of it all is that reps who actually care about the industry and know more about competing products, have experience with running products, aren't running 5 products at a time because they're promo whores, can't leave accurate feedback.

It's just frustrating to me because if it's not effective, I take that personally since it's my task to oversee it. I know you can't be all things to everyone, but there has to be a better way to allow plenty of promotion for companies, opportunities to ask questions and get legit answers and have honest feedback while not drawing someone's ire or getting involved in court drama.why not create a new sub forum, rep reviews, where they need to name if it was free product or paid, and create some code where a pop up comes up stating its a rep reviewing a product, and the review can be taken at face value or with a grain of salt. and make it so you have to be approved before starting a thread. there are obvious cases in the past [BTLs reviews of competitor proteins anyone?] that stand out and could easily be handled at the start and mods would be the first ones on the scene.

This. They need to be thrown on the blacklist and/or banned. There are plenty of garbage reviews made by the same promo winners that 10/10 every aspect and give absolutely no information the supplement company wouldn't have already marketed. It's clear these users are simply looking for free product.

Bear with me as I just got back from long night/spring training, but it seems to me like there's a simple solution - the whole separate "hook-ups" forum may not be feasible, but why not simply have everyone agree to post any hook-ups in the review section (and have mods move any threads there).

These hook ups are usually defacto reviews, so no negative impact on that section - and it would allow people to post without clogging up discussion about supplements. Great place to give a thank you, still huge awareness of a nice hook-up, brand promotion - but no backlash.

Half the reviews there are already POS posts like "I AM THE COMPUTER and reviewing this product I thought it was good 10/10." Rep thank you posts would make that forum more relevant.

Seems like a positive move.

There are plenty of reps in here that knowledgeably talk about stuff. Just because they aren't saying anything bad all the time doesn't mean it's not being talked about. Especially because a lot of scientific discussion revolves around an ingredient which, with few exceptions, are not limited to another company's brand or product. I've read criticism from reps numerous times recently over ingredients, which is what we want right? I think there's so much stroking going on, people are just hungry for the opposite. You can find it, but it's not going to be like Hey _______ , your product ___________ blows and doesn't work. I wouldn't want to read that criticism anyways. Not because it may be the truth but because it comes across sensational and pointless to read.

Almost everyone I look talks about that. I just had a guy apply to one of ours. We looked at his post history and the last two months he has only posted in giveaways/promo threads (only has 80+ post to begin with). In the end I received the greatest neg I have had yet because we didn't let him log for us.

Its quite a shame that reps can't log anymore. I can see the issues of why they can't, but it really is a shame that reps can't do a log of something they know they will enjoy and work.

Some of the best loggers and reviewers were those who are/were reps...very detailed and etc.

Ofc from what I can recall, it took one bad apple that ruined it for everyone else.

However, I think reps who are verified buyers should be allowed to post an in-store review at least... but if not, then I understand

That's the only problem you can solve - zero chance of the second with BB's liability concerns. Reps can at least talk about raw ingredients and list products they recommend - easy to gauge efficacy and brand value.

How about the review section - subsequent natural posts about "I also like this product," "if you like that try x flavor of this product," etc. seem naturally suited there.

Promo section might turn every thank you thread into 20 pages of hookup begging.

There isn't a way. It's sad, but true.

If the golden rule for reps is to not talk in a negative way about a competing company, there's no way for them to log or review products.


So the consensus seems to be moving the shout outs into the promotion section, regardless of the OP's affiliation or how they obtained said items?

Possibility of having a subforum where reps can review products they "purchased" instead of items they received for free? This can give the reps a chance to review some stuff. Maybe they could post a receipt with vendor name x'd out (if not bought on bb.com) as proof they didn't get it for free.
On my forums I don't let any company bashing go on but ask reviewers to state that XXX product didn't work out for them if the review isn't positive or they didn't care for the taste of xxx product. Though I let reps and regular customers log/review any product.

As a nonrep, there are very few products i want to log - and those that i do want, i already did and/or have done in the past where i was pretty new at the logging thing.

But mostly, people just want free products and the idea of logging it, turns people away.



I dunno lol, just IMO of course something needs to be done to bring back some life and discussion to this section. I actually credit bb.com forums to have a big impact of getting myself to where I am today. It would be incredibly sad if others don't receive the same opportunity in the future

i have to agree - if one follows my log or just random photos being thrown around, you can see that a transformation took place, albeit some learning curve on what supplements actually works, what may be questionable and what was just pure misinformation... i appreciated this section more than the "Nutrition" section


You guys could always move the Company promo section to the main page to bring in fresh faces. Make the blacklist more prevalent to keep them from flaking. Make reps sign an agreement not to get butthurt. Idk.

when i first started logging, i wanted to make the gold list... got nominated but it's not updated anymore - so i just have it in my signature for reference with logs (even unofficial sponsored ones) and reviews

The BB packages are one thing that makes this place special and better than any other supplement forum. We are all customers here and get a lot out of a lot of these sections. All the shout outs from CM sending out packages reminds me of how great of a place this is and how great of a company BB.com is to do it. We already get a lot from this place and on top of it people are getting $100 packages showing up at their door.

While we are getting stuff out in the open the fake I'm mad at a company subject stuff has been driving me up the wall.

For example (I'll use my own company to protect the guilty):

Subject-

"What the hell is Evomuse doing with MyoPeptide?!"

Thread- What the hell this stuff is totally amazing best tasting supplement of all time! (BTW it's good, but not best tasting supplement of all time ;))

Honestly that was funny maybe one time now all the fake outrage subject threads are really old. I'm totally mad at "SNS, PES, MuscleTech, whoever.... JUST KIDDING CIRCLE JERK!"

Negs and all, but damn that drives me nuts lately. No offense to guilty parties in the past and maybe I'm the only one who thinks that ship has ran its course :)

It does get old but unfortunately vast majority of this forum is nowdays just people/reps willing to prostitute themselves for some free stuff. Doesn't help that BB.com's own reps actively participate in this madness.

I'm with you all the way but there's really nothing you can do but ignore it and finally give up and find some other forum where people actually discuss supplements and not just review them under cover while bro-patting themselves on the back.

That's kind of what I have been reiterating, sure you could ignore it, not come by here anymore...but this place was awesome and things should be done to make it an awesome and informative place again.

There are just so many competing interests and personalities.

The forum members say they want more knowledgeable people to be able to speak out. Many of the companies want the exact opposite of this because it could put their products into a less than stellar light (not to mention flame personal grudges).

Bodybuilding.com is stuck in the middle, both as a host of the forums and as a business trying to please both sides.

There are ways that members can take advantage of the knowledge on the forum though. They just have to be smarter about it.


Ask about an ingredient or a specific set of ingredients, dont ask about a specific product per se. Then you may get some very in depth information about it without causing so much...I believe the technical term is "butthurt".


It lessens the liability for everyone involved as well.

No one is suggesting you don't come by here anymore. Just skip over the shout out threads. As for becoming an informative pace again, I'd love to see some good solid discussion, but as others have mentioned it will inevitably lead to personal attacks, bashing, people getting butthurt, etc.

The problem is that as soon as a company rep has a complaint about a competing product, whether it is warranted or not, people will just assume that you are putting it down because it's a competing product. Every company will have some sort of science/studies/trials to back up their product.

Cliffs:
KwayZee asked if I wanted to try a sample of Wreckage
I said yes
A sample came in the mail a few weeks later
I went to visit my in-laws out of provence for a week
Came home and saw a parcel sitting on the porch
Opened it up and found a full tub of Wreckage

Thanks K.

This thread is now about good bros exchanging gifts, i.e. another Shout-out thread. That's all we needed.

Motion to turn this thread into the shoutout thread. Why create a new subforum when we already have a place.


Shout out to TheFugitive for hooking it up with some Best BCAAs and ISO-HD samples today.

I still don't understand why shout-outs bother people so much. Not a valid reason was given.
