WAKE THE HELL UP EROIDS!

On behalf of Eroids, BFG and the Mods, I am so proud to be able to announce to everyone that the Eroids Body Challenge is officially back! As I was discussing the structure of the new EBC with Admin, I knew I needed a strong partner to help me return the EBC to glory. I got my wish in spades!!
Please join me in welcoming one of our great members to the EBC Board of Trustees, Makwa! As you might imagine, I was very excited when Makwa accepted my invitation to help me organize the EBC. Mak it’s on an crackin’ homie!

After four long years of hiatus, the EBC has resurrected.
The EBC will have a few new tweaks to it to make it safer and smarter for everyone across the board. From a new prize system to a new scoring criteria. Our hope is to create a structure to make the EBC a regular source of community pride once more.

SAVE THE DATE

Beginning on 3/9/19 at 0000hrs midnight the submission button will be active and members can start submitting their pics. The deadline for entry pics is on 3/16/19 @ 2359hrs. The competition will run a full 12 wks and closing deadline will be 6/8/19 @ 2359hrs.

What is the target goal of the EBC 2019?

EBC 2019 Spring Cutter!!!

This goal was chosen to closely follow the traditional season goals. We want to help you get your Summer Bods ready. We also wanted to end the competition with enough time for you all to enjoy showing off the hard work with enough summer left to hit the beach!
Each successive EBC will have different target goals but we will do our best to follow the season and or competition calendar as to not cross any wires and short circuit some of your comp plans.

More to come

Makwa and I are still making a few last minute tweaks and the Prize Sponsors are still coming on board. While that takes place please begin planning your season around the aforementioned competition dates. We hope to have a large field of competitors.
Soon you will see an additional FAQ thread to be the place that Makwa and I can help answer any questions you might have. The final rules still need a couple of more finishing touches and then we will post them in the FAQ thread as well.

Here is a link to the EBC competition pages in case you’re not sure if you want to join or if you’re not sure what an EBC is exactly.

I can promise you all one thing and that this Makwa and I will work our asses off to be as diligent and accessible to the EBC as possible. This was not brought together on a whim. The EBC is something that has always been a tremendous source of pride for me personally and I’m sure it will soon be for Mak as well. Thanks again to BFG , Pale and Greg for their support.

All threads related to the revamped EBC will be stickied here

Haha... most of the cravings will fade off. The crappy part is 12 weeks of clean eating and after try a slice of pizza. Gag factor x10! After eating clean the grease just kills.

My own fault for procrastinating. Live in a small town, I've tried all. How about holding up a tablet with todays cover of USA? I know I'm cutting it close and not sure if I will even make it in time.

Question regarding the paper, sprouts market has their circular they hand out at the front of the store, usually dated to 3 days, so March 7-10 for instance. But no year. Is this valid or needs to be a newspaper?

Attention It’s time for the daily huddle!

I wanted to personally thank all of the competitors who have entered the EBC so far. Some have been perfectly formatted and we appreciate that. Others have needed “help” and that’s ok. We are here to help. With that said we have encountered a topic that we want to address now to prevent it from becoming an issue.

From this point on anyone who does not include The pictures of a current Newspaper with their entry pics will be required to retake all of their pics all over to ensure the pics and paper are current and not old photos. We ask that you simply do not take your pics until you have your newspaper ready.

This is to avoid any issues of forgery and to avoid any perception issues from the other competitors and spectators. This event needs everyone on the same playing field.
Thank you

Attention it’s time for an EBC Huddle Everyone

I want to cover the topic of Src sponsorship. Src sponsors are a topic that has been an issue for years. It is ok if a Src reaches out to you and offers on their own volition to sponsor you thinking that their products would be represented well by you. However, Spamming/Soliciting Srcs looking for free handouts is cheap and is not viewed by EBC Leadership in good taste. The Srcs are already coming out of pocket by more than $43,000 and to spam/solicit a Src and beg for more is just not going to be ok.
Show some class and self respect. If not for you then do it for the EBC and Eroids. I have no respect for anyone doing this and the same can be said for Admin and Mak. We are not fans of it.
We have been made aware that this is taking place and out of respect for the Srcs and for the EBC competition I’m going to ask for this to stop. Should it be brought to any of our attention that this soliciting is a continued issue expect some consequences to come down from the Mods.
Thanks

Brings up a question I had.

The section on the entry for competitors says "representing" yet also says put in who you like based on where you obviously buy.

I wasn't sure about putting any down as I am not sponsored etc. but do have some favs that I use and they happen to be a couple that are sponsors of this event.

Do we keep them or remove them?

Again, I am not sponsored and thought it was a little odd that it said both representing and your preferred source etc. Pretty big difference.

Some clarity on that would be great.

The EBC used to be a way for people to show off the results of the gear from their favorite sources. If you are using gear from a source that you want to give a shout out to then list them.

Exactly. Just like gear pics or self shots just put down the Src you’re using if they’re listed on Eroids.

What if one of the sources is on hiatus? Should I just not put them down then?

You don't have to, those "representing source/products" fields are not mandatory.

Hiatus as in hasn’t paid their dues? Or has gone private?
If they haven’t paid their dues and you’re able to select them anyway go ahead and do so. If they have gone private out of respect I would leave it blank or choose Eroids.

cool. I'll leave it up!

I'm very appreciative of all the sponsors and if there are a few that I use that I can give shout out to it's the least I can do.

Thanks for the quick update Makwa.

Amen. Great if sources reach out to you but begging for gear to run a cycle cheapens the whole EBC and can put a bad taste in these sources mouth who have already been so generous.

Just want to clarify this is meant for folks soliciting and/or spamming Srcs. Anyone who was righteously sponsored is all good in our eyes.

Gents,
I apologize but I'm still trying to figure out the goal here. Will the winner be the best physique result? Or is this more of a "Biggest Loser" contest where the winner may not win a traditional bodybuilding contest but he has made the most progress? Anyone have a link to the judging criteria if available?

https://www.eroids.com/forum/general/general-talk/2019-ebc-spring-cutter-judging-criteria

The goal is about who can show a physique which embodies the best cut. The EBC has always historically been about transformation. In the link you’ll see that roughly 70% of the score will be a combination of overall transformation and who cut the best. Followed by other related objectives.
