Sticky


#1

I don’t know how many people are trying the follica thing, known or unknown to the forums, but I think there should be a sticky of things tried. Why try something in the future that already known not to work in the past. I think everybody that tried or trying have an idea of “why” they did something a certain way. The sticky should just be a list of things done and results., no explainations needed. In other words, get organized.

A poster called Moomin has already created a simple form to fill in. Might be a good idea to have something similar? I just copy/paste it below:

"Hey guys,

As said earlier i’m going to try my own follica experiment as soon as all the products arrive, and I had some questions that I would have liked to get answered. Anyway it got me thinking that if everyone here who has tried the experiment told us what their experiences were in an easy and uniform format we could compare the methods experimenters used and what results they had.

Once there are enough results in I can shove all the info in a document and we can “compare and contrast”. There are 18 questions and they only require short answers,so if you’ve got some time fill it in si’l vous plait. if nothing else it should provide a comprehensive view of what we’ve tried so far.

Just copy the below and paste it in a reply and answer below the question.

Cheers

Sure, I will put a sticky up. I meant to do that anyway, just didn’t have time to get to it.
