If you want a solid example of how to run a web page the wrong way just look at Saradas. GWM is so much better in every way possible.

Could not agree more ! this site is 10x better in every way . On there they expect u to post content literally every day .. and monitor u with an activity meter . If u don't have i would say 80% or above u will lose access to many parts . Also their is no freedom to post there , they say post .. here in certain forums etc and this is the place to discuss fbb with other's ! it's the biggest bunch of bs . Even if u post something in the appropriate forum , and is relevant to the topic . They will take it down in a flash . And if u private chat with other fans even about a favorite fbb , they will monitor and delete the conversation . They only care about 1 thing .. getting more stolen content posted to say they have biggest archive on the net . And getting people to join $$ vip . That's it

Saradas is pretty much a warez bbs from back in the day. In the old warez scene, a typical bbs had a "ratio": uploading so many megabytes of pirated software, porn, etc. would entitle you to download some proportion of that amount. If you tried to download without uploading ("leeching"), you were banned. If you uploaded garbage or something the bbs admin didn't want, you were banned. Only difference with Saradas is that the "warez" is fbb content. I truly wonder how it's doing after the Bannening; if it's a thriving site or just the same five guys sending pirated content around.

I encourage all of these things. Even if someone doesn't do any of these and just lurks, they might always start to engage with the site at a later point.

This applies to me. I've lurked on this site for years even before you could register an account. Finally registered in 2012, and continued lurking until 2018 or so when I began uploading images to the main site. I've only really been continually active since then (of course that's already 3-4 years, time flies...).

I was around saradas just as many years, although I've had the opposite experience. I would say I haven't even been to the site since 2014, maybe longer. I got tired of receiving all of the email warnings about banning lurkers and inactive accounts. Also they screwed me on their little "karma" system but that's another story. There are plenty of other sites out there to look at, and especially with the rise of fitness types on social media you can just go straight to the source.

I just added an email filter for anything from that site, straight to trash. I couldn't remove myself from there, so that was the only options I had. Their emails were just toxic.

I used a dummy email acct for them that I no longer use so I don’t know what kind of emails they send. Are they anything like those weird admin posts they make on the forum spamming bullshit steroid merchants (seriously, if you want to buy steroids, DON’T use those sites: you will get bunk product if not outright scammed) and the like? It’s so weird!
