Introducing the Project Swole Forums

Posted March 24, 2011 in Social Networking 7 Comments »

Allow me to direct your attention to the Project Swole Forums. Build muscle and lose fat by sharing your training secrets, diet strategies, progress updates, and supplement reviews; or discuss anything remotely related to health and fitness.

Visit the Swole Forums at

Fitness ForumThis will be a great way for me and all you Swole readers to talk about health and fitness topics that I just don’t have time to write individual posts about. There is also an area for posting progress pics, workout routines, or anything else you can come up with to show off your goods. My only request is this: let’s not make it a sausage fest on the pics forum… if you guys are going to post progress pics, can we please get some ladies to pose and post once a in while?

Down with the Swole Contact Form!

I want to transition from using the Swole contact form to the Swole Forums, for asking questions about health and fitness. Lord knows I get way too many e-mails on a daily basis, and I just can’t keep up with them.

The Swole contact form can still be used to ask questions about advertising, guest posts, or anything extremely private, but again I can’t guarantee a timely response.

Forum Moderators Needed

Months ago I posted about the upcoming forums and had several volunteers to help moderate. Well, now that the forums are actually up and running, I will need some moderators. So, anyone who has a couple hours a week to help answer questions and/or keep the forums clean of spam and trolls, I need YOU!

Unfortunately this is 100% volunteer work. I won’t be able to pay you for your help, but you will get a ton of kudos and I’ll help promote any projects you have going on. Leave a comment on this post to volunteer, and let me know if you have any relevant experience with moderating forums, developing websites, personal training, health topics, or nutrition advice.

That’s it! Let’s get the forums rockin’ ASAP and we’ll really have a sweet community going on at Project Swole.

I’m also going to link to the forums up on the top menu, so you don’t have to bookmark it if you don’t want. 😉

By the way, even if you registered with the blog, you’ll still have to re-register at the forums. I’m not about to try to code a bridge between phpBB and WordPress, sorry.

Share the Swole!

  1. Good stuff Steve!

    Looks like it’s going to be a fitness party! Is it officially open right now? It said it was locked when I tried to visit. You should do a post teaching dumb users like me the functionality of the forum. Just a thought. 🙂

    Take care,


    • Yeah I think it was locked for a while there. For some reason I had to rename a template folder in order to open up the forum for new posts. It was quite odd. Should be up and running now though.

    • Is it just me, or is it impossible to find the ‘Start a New Thread’ button? Seriously, logged in as Admin I don’t see a way to start a new thread. I’ve gotta check out the page template when I get home tonight.

  2. Glad to see that you finally got things up for the forum! I have a few questions on the forum and there is no way to send a private message to you(admin). Please send me an email so we can talk about it. Nice work though. Hope to see a whole lot of action going on there!

  3. This is excellent! Congrats to you for putting this together. I know this is gonna be THE place to be. I will definitely be up in the place. 😉
