Hey guys. I want to introduce myself to the community. I've been searching around online for a couple of weeks to find a community that has reviews and information that I can trust and haven't had much luck. I'm 39. Got back into bodybuilding again at age 36 and had some stutter-steps with PEDs, having a lack of sources to get reliable information from. I came across this site looking for information about a particular source, which I wasn't able to find. I started off trying to get into a community on Reddit but found it lacking. The established members of that forum seemed more intent on being assholes to the newer members than trying to educate them. Seems to be the way that reddit is going. Plus, they have rules on source reviews that say no source reviews, ever. They ban for even mentioning a source. I'm just trying to find honest information.

Every source every thing you need is here. Check sources review pages and ask and discuss to see how everyone is doing. Ask questions and be humble. People can give you karma or take it away if your a dick. Good luck

Welcome good job reading the rules too... most of everyone here is pretty cool and has some harsh ways of giving advice but it’s generally good advice.... listen and learn man I’ve learned a lot...

Well, if you read the rules, the same applies here. Anything source, brand or manufacturer related can't be mentioned on the open forum. You need to go to the home page, click on the source you're interested in and click on reviews, or ask and discuss. Don't mention other sources on a different source discussion page, but you're free to discuss the brands and such there. Up at the top left there's a drop down arrow, use that for research. It takes a long time to learn, and don't post silly basic questions like , how much test should I take for my first cycle, or, can I mix oils in the same barrel? All of those answers can be found easily through a simple search with the little magnifying glass in the drop down menu.
Do some serious research, cruise through the forum posts, all of the info is great. Any top 10 source is about guaranteed to deliver, if they don't people leave a review and they lose business. Treat the sources here like you would your best friend, the nature of the business demands mutual trust and cooperation. Don't be a cocky asshole, and don't post every question you have..oh, and don't go full Monte and run a cycle with 12 compounds...this is a safety first site.

Be humble, it's the internet, and the guys who have been here a while have seen plenty of stupid kids asking to be spoon fed info. There's little patience for ignorance.

You'll be fine, just research research research!

Thanks for the reply. I made sure to read the rules before I posted anything. The first thing I picked up was that karma seems to be the coin of the realm here, more so than most other sites, and that you can't do much here without it. Is this site more American or Eurocentric?

It’s a good mix but probably a hair more American You don’t need karma do do anything here. Well, you need 5 to vote. Aside from that you can review and discuss wherever you like.

Don’t read too much into the karma thing. All it means is the person is active.

I'm trying to submit my source so I can review them and get other people's reviews of them. They're reviewed on muscleguru but all the reviews seem like bullshit to me. I mean, you can tell when reviews are bullshit and these are bullshit reviews. I wish it wasn't such a pain in the ass to get gear sent to a lab and tested.

I think you need 50 karma to submit a source.

Yeah that's a bummer. I mean, I get this site has to protect itself from getting spammed with bullshit reviews but I don't know how karma is even acquired. I'm just trying to get the truth of the matter with my source and keep other people from buying bullshit gear if it is actually bullshit gear.

Screw that source... any of the top 10 here will blow them away anyways. Anyone with 8000 reviews that aren't spam get my vote over someone I've never heard of, unless I'm feeling frisky, and want to inject something @brogainz360 described as FIYAAA!

I don’t even know anymore. I dunno why that number was in my head. I could definitely be wrong. Let’s call it 8 to be safe lol
