    I'm in full agreement there.

    Hrm, is it weird? "Participatory Sports" simply delineates between sports that one participates in, and spectator sports. In other words, we don't want posts about the big NFL game in this section of the forum.

    Yes, I could definitely merge those two forums with ease. While similarities exist, I do see fitness journals and fitness challenges as different breeds. I don't think people who follow journals would want their "feed" cluttered up with various challenges. While I'm with you on the "less is better" mantra, in this case I feel the separation is warranted.

    Anyone else have thoughts on this?



    Thanks GH, really appreciate the input. I would, too! :)

    New forums are in place, but not yet open for posting. Other changes mentioned in recent blogs have been made to a few existing forums.

    Comments are welcome. Feel free to put in your two cents on everything from the naming conventions to the descriptions to the ordering of the forums.

    The new forums will be open within the next 24-48 hours.

    I think you should move the Transformation Spotlight up under Introductions and Beginners... most new people who stumble onto the site are probably looking for transformations...

    Also, shouldn't Women's Health & Fitness be in the new Sports, Health & Injuries section?

    That's not a bad idea at all, but I would like to wait until that feature is relaunched to move the forum.

    Good call, done.

    I've been reading back through some old journals of mine and stumbled upon one that had some really good discussion on the transitioning from transformation / cutting / body image goal type of lifestyle to a more long term athletic goal lifestyle.

    I stumbled upon this quote from Ecrivain and thought, wow, 8 years later and it has come true.

    Post 67 on this page perhaps depending on your viewing preferences.
