    Workout logs/trackers?

    Unfortunately, I've seen on other hip-hop forums that Health/Fitness sections don't last long which is a shame imo.

    Yeah, it's tough when you're competing with several websites that are dedicated solely on health and fitness.

    That alone could be a competitive advantage over other forums that don't mainly focus on H/F: longevity.

    [edit: I wouldn't agree with directly competing for membership based on the H/F forum. I'd think of it like a convenience store down the street. You like the people, you're familiar and you can get just about anything you need.]

    You come to a forum for the information you googled but you stay for the community. That's actually why I registered today.

    You're doin something right I guess.

    Actual suggestions:

    Ways to share workouts that are less transient
    (once a thread dies, it's not as helpful, having to search through archives for one post)

    Progress trackers. I don't know how realistic that is for vBulletin.

    I think the articles are a solid staple. I haven't read many yet but in general they do put RM in more search results and with membership it's always a numbers game.

    Sub-forums! Browsing the get to this thread, I read about:
    -troubleshooting
    -various nutrition topics
    -a guy wondering if his balls would fall off if he didn't shower for three days
    -supplements
    -routines

    Not everything has to be divided but even three major groups would help organization and readability. Also, it'd allow for more stickies without looking cluttered.

    Maybe sub-forums nutrition, body and motivation?
