The forum structure at the heart of LongeCity works well in facilitating a free flow of communication and information exchange.
Other more structured ways of curating information have their own advantages, but their adoption appears to be more difficult.
 
In 2014 we closed the 'regimen' forums for brain enhancement and general supplements in favour of a new 'stacks' function.
aiming to generating a searchable database of combinations as an easily accessible resource. 
 
It took some time for the new feature to gain traction. In some areas this worked ok, in others we still don't have any entries.
 
To further promote the feature we are launching a small COMPETITION for the BEST REGIMEN in each category.  
 
On Sept.1st LongeCity leadership will draw up a shortlist of the most promising entries for each existing category:  
  • Life Extension, General Health; 
  • Alertness, Cognition, Mood
  • Sports, Performance, Bodybuilding
  • Medical
  • Weight Loss
  • Beauty, Cosmetics, Skin, Anti-Aging    
This shortlist will be based (but not necessarily bound) by the average of the "star ratings" an entry has received from all LongeCity readers! 
The Immortality Institute Members will then vote on a winner from each shortlist
The winner in each category* will receive $100 (via paypal) and 100.  
 
(* yes, that means that the winning chance in the currently empty, or sparsely populated categories might be higher)

At least for the duration of the competition, the old 'stacks' forums will re-open. We hope that by now everyone has understood the distinction we are aiming for: the 'regimen' feature is for presenting and discussing structured regimens that can be considered, compared and potentially adopted by others down the ages, the forums are for more free-wheeling conversation that might be more speculative, protracted and less likely to hold a swift take-away message for others.

That's enough incentive to try and use this stack feature here. Now I'm a bid disappointed. Because it doesn't allow a certain time-period for editing like here on the forum with preview. For example formating appeared different than I typed in, an illustrative picture doesn't show, and with many ingredients to fill in it's too easy to make mistake with numbers and units. Without a chance to correct it.

Considering all these shortcomings, the forum to me now seems a much better place to present with precision. The limited editing features make it really not that useful. And I actually don't see any advantage of using it - beside winning a 100 bucks. ;)

 

Or maybe it wouldn't be to hard to upgrade it with full editing features?

On the forum, you get a 10min window for editing obvious typos.

 

On the feature, the editing period is unlimited- but only for Members.  :)

 

I have changed the permissions for registered users for now - so you can correct your listing.
