This is not a gripe. I am just providing information for those who are not aware.
There is a 255 person limit on the number of friends one can have if you want to be able to message your friends. One can have hundreds of friends if one doesn't care about messaging ability. For club owners, that 255 limit is critical because we have to be able to message.
As the owner of a club with 239 members, this is an ongoing issue for me. In my 255 friends, figure 2 WGT contacts, 15-20 owners and others I share information with, 35-40 for AS games (not in BD) … that means all our club members cannot be my friends as I type.
I also have to add members for certain community AS or match play tournaments where we have to friend each other to set time to play.
The first time I ran across this, before I was an owner, was when I sent a friends message to an owner. The response was curt and essentially, "What do you want?" I didn't get it then but I sure understood it later.
Recently, I got a friends request and accepted it (after deleting someone). I asked what's up. I was told just checking to see if you would accept. Others will not.
There's a reason. I kept her as a friend for 2 weeks and deleted her.
