  • Perks for iron forumites

    Just thought I'd share something that may help w/ the forum here. Various other forums I’ve seen have "perks" and activities for members that we can discuss...

    -contests
    -blogs and obviously threaded discussions
    -badge icons for certain accomplishments
    -access to existing article/ audio archives
    -member only videos of us recording the show, events, etc.
    -quarterly livestreams
    -monthly hangouts
    -member spotlights
    -sneak peeks
    -polls
    -discounts for 1-on-1 coaching calls

    Which ones sound good?

    Just wanted to share before I forgot!

        Badges, live streams, hangouts, and polls are always a solid way to drive engagement and improve the experience on the forum.

          Almost all of them sound good, but the best perk is being able to interact with you guys now. I've never trusted social media, mostly because of me being a child of a 1980s sysadmin and a soviet bloc woman-programmer, so I never had a Facebook account.

          Out of those you listed, polls have always been a least favourite forum feature, since they rarely show anything useful and are usually used just as a distraction. All the others sound good.
          My full name is Marek Antoniusz Wietrzykowski. That does not fit on the back of my ID and I doubt it'll fit nicely in the username.

          Glad you guys set this up! biggest thing for me is having access to you guys and the interaction. I like the idea of coaching call discounts and community spotlights.

            Good input guys! Of course we all have day jobs... which is why we can stay independent and unbiased on the podcast. The price of having a demanding job is that I'll mostly log in on weekends.

                Contest idea! Write the best "haiku" and win something cool. I have a few Iron Radio buttons/ key chains, and t-shirts, plus of course Phil must have lots of cool swag laying around.

                Here's an example:

                Look to the distance
                To where the Iron Gods roam
                Go, walk among them.


                I'll mention this on-air next week (mid-Feb. 2021).

                  Wake every morning,
                  Drink coffee and hit the gym,
                  Listen to the show.

                    How about:

                    Iron Radio
                    Lonnie, Mike, and Phil are cool
                    We miss the Fortress.

                    -Sean

                    Barbells and dumbbells
                    Kettlebells and cables too
                    Mats and bands and chains.

                      Will the squat rack be open?
