    How to Write a Post That Gets Your Questions Answered!
    Part1
    This post was originally written by Ajax of AR.

    I think that this might help the members of this board (especially the new ones) get the most out of the time they spend here. I have noticed that there are a lot of poor posts being slapped up and that’s not helping anybody--it wastes the expert’s time and doesn’t get people’s questions answered for the people who need answers.

    I put together a few tips on how to post more effectively in the hope that, if read and followed, it will help people with questions get the attention of the people that have the answers and thus, get their questions answered.

    The four main points to writing a good post are:

    1) Always do your research first.
    2) Write a good subject line!
    3) Use the body of the post to clarify your subject line and give details.
    4) Make sure your post is readable!

    So here it goes...

    1) Always do your research first.

    Many questions--especially “newbie” questions have already been answered. PLEASE don’t post a question on a topic that has been discussed to death already. We tire of answering, “Can I drink Winny” (Yes.) and “Is there an Effective Oral-Only Cycle?” (No!)

    (New guys take note: we love to answer questions, but after the fifth time, it gets a little old, after the tenth time it gets real old. After the twentieth time, it just gets to be a running joke... So help us help you by doing your research first!)

    Search previous posts in the forums before you post a new question. It saves time and will help you get a better answer. It’s not just a matter of etiquette; it’s also practical.

    Research is faster!

    The odds are that your question is not all that unique. The same questions crop up for everybody at different points in our AS learning curve, so somebody has probably asked--and answered--you question (or a very similar one) at least once before.

    If it has been asked before, you are in luck--do a search and you get an immediate answer, no need to wait for a reply!

    It will frequently get you a better answer.

    The people here on this discussion board are generous in sharing their knowledge, but nobody wants to waste their time answering the same questions over-and-over. If it has been ‘discussed to death’ already and you post it AGAIN, the ‘experts’ will ignore the post, thus your question will not get the answer you want! (Somebody who asked the same question before, however, did get the answer and you would have found it if you had done a search.)

    An additional bonuses for doing your research:

    When you do research before posting a question, you gain additional background information and perspective that will help you ask better questions when you post.

    You also develop a better reputation on the board if you ask “smart questions.”

    2) Write a good subject line!

    With hundreds of new posts a day, nobody can read all the posts. A good subject line is far more likely to get the attention of the person who has the information you need.

    I can't emphasize this enough: A good subject line helps insure that the people you want to read your post WILL read it! Alternatively, a bad subject line almost always means that the majority of the people reading the board will skip your post.

    Take a moment and make sure you write a good subject line --it is the single biggest factor in getting the attention of the people that can answer the question. Most people will only read a post if the subject line grabs their attention; if there’s nothing in the subject line to get he reader’s attention, they will skip the post. That’s just reality.

    A good subject line is a complete question or statement.

    Be specific about what you are asking. The more specific your subject line is, the better chance you will get the answer you need.

    The worst subject lines are vague questions or statements. For example:

    “Check this Out!” “Important, Please Read!” “Everybody Read This!” “Has anybody experienced this?” “Help Me!” “I Need an Expert’s Advice!” “My First Cycle” “What’s Wrong?” or the dreaded “??????”

    These subject lines are too vague; they could be about almost anything. The subject line gives us no clue about the content of the message or what the question actually is. If the subject is vague, how does a person reading the forum know if the information in the message is of interest to them?

    Most people just scan for interesting looking posts and skip over the vague ones and the person who has the answer, the person you want to read you post, might just cruise on by without ever knowing he has the information you desperately need!

    The next worst subject lines are ones that are too broad:

    “Anadrol Question!”

    What is your question about Anadrol? Do you want to know if the pills you just bought are real or fake? Is the manufacturer reputable? Is Anadrol effective? Is Anadrol a dangerous? Does Anadrol have serious side effects? Is Anadrol a good choice in a ?/?/? stack?

    “Need Advice on My Cycle”

    Again, the question is too vague--and one that is posted all too often. What advice do you need? What steroids are you using? Is it about the stack? Dosages? When to inject? Results to expect? Is it your first or tenth cycle? Is it a question about using Anadrol & Test to bulk or Test/Deca/Winny to cut?

    Here are a couple examples of specific questions that make good subject lines:

    “Does Anadrol Cause Hair Loss?”
    “My Second Cycle (for cutting) using Test/Deca/Winny. Suggestions?”

    3) Use the body of the post to clarify your subject line and give details.

    Give the reader all the details he needs to answer your question intelligently.

    Often, if you write a really good subject line, you won’t even have to have anything in the body of the post. But there are many cases where the body is a good place to give extra details that can help the members give you a better response to your question.

    In particular, if you want experts to give you advice on your specific situation, give them some background on yourself: your age, height, weight and body fat %, how long you have been lifting, how many cycles you have taken, any other drugs or medical conditions you have, or any other details you think might be relevant.

    Here’s an example of a well thought out post to ask advice about a cycle:
    quote:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    “My Second Cycle (Cutting) using Test/Deca/Winny. Suggestions?”
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Good subject line! Very specific. You know what the question is about--and the experts will know if it’s a question they can help with just by looking at the subject line.

    The Body of your post might be something like this:
    quote:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am a 38-year-old bodybuilder with 5 years experience lifting weights. I am 6'2“, 220 lbs and 12% body fat. I have had great results on my first cycle 6 months ago (a bulking cycle, Test/Dbol for eight weeks), I gained 20 lbs and kept about 16 of that.

    In my second cycle I want to put on a little more muscle, but my main goals are to achieve muscle hardness and definition and lower my BF to less than 8%. I want to be ripped!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here the person is giving basic but critical background on himself, his experience and what goals he is trying to achieve. We need good background information to give good advice--so don’t leave it out!

    Part2

    My cycle plan so far is:

    Test. Enathate 250mg /Week, weeks 1-10
    EQ 400mg/week, weeks 1-9
    Winny (Zambons) 50mg ED Weeks 8-12
    Clen, 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off, ECA (Xenadrine) on the off weeks.
    Clomid 24 hours after I finish the Winstrol (winny).
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here he gives us the cycle he is thinking about. You can tell he has done his research before he posted because he has done a pretty good job crafting a cycle. He includes the drugs AND dosages per week or per day. That’s good!

    Just saying, “what should I use for a cutting cycle?” shows that you have not done taken the time to do your research--so why should a person take the time to design a stack if you didn’t take the time to research it first? We are not here to compensate for your laziness!

    Saying “I have 2 bottles of X and 3 bottles of Y and 100 tabs of Z what should I do with it?” will also get you very few answers for the same reason above.
    quote:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I want to keep the dosages of steroids as low as possible (for health reasons, I am older and I don’t want to cause liver damage. Lose more hair or raise my blood pressure), however I don’t want to be so stingy that I don’t achieve my results. Are the dosages OK?

    I am pretty set on the Test/Deca/Winny combo (it’s a money issue, I can get the gear very cheap) but if somebody can suggest a different stack and a good reason for switching, I am open to that suggestion.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here he tells us what his cycle parameters and limitations are; this is very helpful. If we know money is an issue, so we can work with that!
    quote:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Some specific questions I have:

    I will be eating a high-protein/low-fat diet at about 2000 calories a day (300 grams of protein, the rest complex carbs). I am doing cardio four times a week @ 45 minutes a day (stationary bike). Is this good for my cutting cycle?

    Should I run Clen (2 weeks on/2 weeks off) during the stack to help lose weight? If I continue the Clen after I finish the Clomid, will it help me keep my gains?

    Since I am trying to lose weight and get ‘ripped’ should I focus more on doing sets of 12-15 reps to failure, or stick with my standard 6-10 reps per set?

    Are there any supplements that you would recommend that might improve results or keep side effects to a minimum?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here he lists some specific questions he wants answered. Asking specific questions is always better than asking ‘open-ended’ ones. People either know the answer to specific questions--or they don’t. If they do, they will generally answer them!

    4) Make Sure Your Post is Readable!

    For your sake and ours, make it easy to read! People are more likely to answer a question that is easy to read. If members can’t quickly and easily make sense of your question because you didn’t take the time to make it readable, then why should the people you are asking the question to take the time to try and understand (and answer) them?

    Use proper capitalization. Forget the caps lock key! Capitalize the first letter of a new sentence, it makes reading so much easier!

    Be careful about using too many abbreviations and slang terms. Not everybody gets your lingo. (Some of us farts just ain’t that hip any more!) Even if it’s an discussion between friends, maybe somebody will search on the post a year later and the terms you use might not make sense.

    Take the time to look up the correct spelling for words, especially technical /chemical terms. Again, if you don’t care enough to take the time to spell it right, why should anybody take the time to answer? We have computers; we have word processors; we have spell checkers; we are all smart people with more than average drive and discipline. Surely we can spell! I often write my posts / replies in a word processor, do a spell / grammar check then cut and past to the form for posting.

    Make an effort to organize your thoughts clearly. Don’t just dump your thoughts on to the computer screen, organize them. When you are finished composing the question (or a reply). Read it out loud to yourself to see if it makes sense. (That may sound hokey, but it’s an old writer’s trick that works!) A lot of wisdom is wasted when a smart person doesn’t communicate what he/she knows effectively!

    A few tips on researching information before you post:

    1) If you are asking a question about a specific steroid, look it up in the drug profiles section of this or another board.

    Often just looking up the background info on a drug will give you the answer to your question or point you to the right information so you can answer it on your own. At the very least, it will give you the proper spelling (and some alternates, generic or standard names) and enough background knowledge to ask the question without sounding like a complete fool.

    2) Write a good subject line, pick out the key words and do a search with them.

    “Does Anadrol cause hair loss?” might give you keywords like “Anadrol hair loss” for a search.

    3) Try searching on a few alternate but related key words.

    Also try searches on “Anadrol balding” “Anadrol baldness” “Anadrol hair”

    Try the searches with the generic name “Oxymetholone” instead of “Anadrol”

    4) Don’t just search the forums, use all the resources you have available.

    Do a search on Google. Check out a couple other good anabolic steroid web sites. There are a lot of resources at your disposal!

    Finally, and probably most importantly:

    5) Read the steroidology.com board regularly.

    You will gain a great deal of knowledge by just reading and participating in the forums here. In a month or two you will be amazed at the knowledge you will build up. On top of that, you will probably make a few friends who will go out of their way to help you when you need it.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and thanks in advance for writing a good post!

    Is Any One Type Of Test Better Than The Other?
    I am doing my FIRST CYCLE with my friend. He has taken steroids before...but something doesnt make sense to me. He wants to do, per week for 8 weeks:
    1. 500mg of Aritest (Prop and Etanate mix I think)
    2. 500mg of Cypinate
    3. 400mg of EQ
    Nolvadex + HCGs and Propecia for PCT
    QUESTION IS - WHY take 2 different types of test #1 and #2
    Arent they the same thing? (Thought Cyp was just 1 less molecule than Etanate)
    IS ANY ONE TYPE OF TEST BETTER THAN THE OTHER???????
    -cause I think I would just do 1 and the EQ, especially cause its my first cycle! (By the way I am 5'8' 140lbs max bench 210lbs 24yrs old working out 5 days a week for 2 years)

    Equipoise and Deca??
    is deca and equipoise a good stack, its seems to me that it would be but i am not sure that it is because i have never heard of anyone doing the two together. i just want to know if it is safe and if it would be effective.

    Not amused by your lack of interest
    Dude

    Some of us do not stay logged on to the web 24/7. People like me work 2 jobs hit the gym 6 days a week and are looking for quick answers to some very serious issues. Therefore if we are asking question that have been asked before, we didnt see the answer.........Thanks..... btw thanks for making me not want to ask any question on this site, as they may not be the proper format or they have been asked before.

    Good morning all, i'm new to this site. I have a question for anyone to answer. recently purchased Deca and trembolone from a source, the name on the bottle says it is from Europa Quality Laboratories, LTD, has anyone heard of this brand. I have searched it in the internet to verify if it is real or not before i use it, and so far i have not been able to find the manufacturer. Has anyone heard of of this brand. You can reply back directly to my email @ jyepez@crdus.jnj.com, i would like to get started asap. I have used other brands in the past Tokkyyo, brovel, quality,.
    Thanks for the help
