Reviewing Sources Vs Shilling for Sources

Topic created · 6 Posts · 441 Views
  • What’s up this is probably unnecessary but my Modafinil this morning won’t let this rest so I’m making this thread.

    Recently I posted two reviews for two different sources and they weren’t your typical styles of reviews that so many of us leave.

    Because of this with one of my reviews Capt brought to my attention a new perspective which I hadn’t realized until after the fact and as a Mod shared with me that my review came off a bit shilly which I’m bummed out by. Again, Capt, I’m sorry my guy but also thanking you for bringing this to my attention. I’m hoping this thread can help others because of it.

    I read the wiki rules when I joined so I always kept my expression of appreciation at bay with my previous reviews and I should have kept it at bay this time too.

    To anyone reading this please let me lead by example here as this is not something that is fair to the great sources here. I know how excited we can get just like little kids in a candy store but understand there is a system here and it’s this system that is keeping everything afloat.

    Don’t make the mistake I made by leaving long detailed reviews, the Mods here have structured this system allowing us to promote our appreciation for sources in healthier ways that makes it credible and consistent so reviews like the ones I left are not necessary.

    In fact, ironically my retarded over excited behavior that I didn’t tame too well if taken as shilling can damage the Sources credibility. Please read the Wiki and you will have a clearer understanding by what I mean. And fuck I fucked up I should have re-read it but it’s okay I learned and I’m okay with this because I get to do right by my fellow humans next time.

    If you feel inspired to leave some reviews for sources please understand the collective perspective here and don’t be foolish like myself as this can hurt the source at the end of it all which of course nobody wants to happen.

    So just as a reminder guys:

    Simple short reviews are plenty okay “ T/A: 3 Days” and if you want to show real appreciation do your due diligence and get some bloods.

    To prevent this from happening again, maybe we should create a review template kinda like what we have for blood work but for T/A?

    Tribe what are your thoughts on this?

    TDLR:
    These sources here are providing serious value to humans like us and there is a set structure for how we can provide social proof in ways without damaging integrity: T/A, Annecdotal, Labwork, and bloods.

    I love your fuckin rants, especially because they are positive rants. This is not shilling, and if everyone considers your semi autistic, elaborate, overly detailed, hilarious reviews as shilling, they need to loosen the fuck up. I hope to see more ranting posts, but if you have to stop then whatever. That’s bullshit, not everything needs to be so serious.

    And no, like @“Scuba Greaves” posts some great shit too, I’d doubt he’d do a review ever again if we had some basic ass template.

  • I agree with master, your reviews are awesome but maybe a bit too detailed, not shilly at all.

    On the other hand I feel like I come off as a shill for Sparta sometimes, And i don’t think you’re anywhere as near as bad as I am

    You have a post count of above 700, with input/reviews/advice all over the forum. Who cares what you say or how often you talk about Sparta Lmao.

  • Yeah fuck it… Write what you want bro… I like putting out a good word for sources who continue to come through… Recently I’ve been praising the shit out of J and H… Yeah he lags at times, but he goes out of his way to make things right (hooks it up fat as hell), without anyone asking him to do so, he is a stand up dude so far … Other great sources on here too, just I play favorites at times… Oh yeah, express pct comes through cheap as hell every time…

  • I’d be more concerned if there wasn’t a single person willing to write as much as you guys. If there wasn’t at least one person ecstatic about their results or usage somewhere along this board then we’re all fucking doing it wrong imo. I’d rather read overly detailed posts than just ‘10/10 standup guy’ because at least I can read more of your shit and start to generate my own opinions of the information and you. I think more often than not with the nature of the beast that we get incomplete information regarding anecdotal experiences, and potentially more detailed posts could help clear up anxieties/uncertainties for newbies.

    I know first hand how terrifying some of that shit can be. I’m bipolar and have some combat ptsd so certain hormones are automatic turn off’s for me due to their mechanisms of action and unintended side effects, but I wouldn’t have been able to accurately conclude that had I not had a plethora of other peoples’ experiences to go through along side actual scientific literature. I feel as though most of the bb’ing communities cycle dosages have gotten so far out of control because of shit like this. I’ve had to bring myself back from the brink of having done some retarded blasts just due to misinformation. I never would have gotten as for as I did on as little test as I did had I stopped at the shallow shilling some people do on forums and shit.

    The thirst for accurate information is out there, look at Seth Feroce and Jeff Nipples on YT, it’s just that the oppositions vocal minority is much more verbal than the community supporting it, because generally it’s quicker and easier to shit on someone for something little than it is to actually think critically about the information and make the changes to their gear/lifestyles/training/nutrition they don’t really want to make. I could read shit about gear all day long, and fucking will as long as you dudes keep pumping out more great shit to read lol
