    I know that, Paul, and that's why I said "in a way, I applaud your efforts".  I know you have nothing but good intentions and are only trying to help.

      Well Sam . That is nice to hear . Very rare . But thank you . I know I am all over the place sticking my nose in here and there . It is all interesting to me .

      Many times I am just trying to broaden the scope of possibilities . In case some had not considered certain angles before .

      Other times I am genuinely curious and want to know more .

      But lol . There are posts I have not posted in . I purposely pass them up . Because I am not trying to post in all of them .

      But there sure are a hellalot that spark my interest .

    EDIT : And guess what ? I'm an old fart just like you skeptics .

    WGT could use some a lessons on how to effectively communicate .

    In the various multiplayer game formats , In their own multimedia formats , CC Owners , PM messaging , CC Forums , Main Forums , Customer Service , Customer Support , Member Input , Admin Transparency , and more .

      WGT might be smart to hire some experts . From the outside . To show how much improvement enhanced communication could increase their monetary gain . Their bottom line .

    Communication is the act of developing meaning among entities or groups through the use of sufficiently mutually understood signs, symbols, and semiotic conventions.

    At its foundation, Communication focuses on how people use messages to generate meanings within and across various contexts, and is the discipline that studies all forms, modes, media, and consequences of communication through humanistic, social scientific, and aesthetic inquiry.


      Not going to happen anytime soon . But in the interests of GR8 communication .

    Excerpt from another thread :



      Yes the similarities to real life are astonishing . From the pictography and the beautiful courses . To the feel of the swing . The wind . Club selection . Your favorite balls .

      That little tiny adjustment on the spin that you know made that 173 yarder drop right in the hole . Knowing you could do it again . Sometime . And you usually do eventually .

      Recreational , entertaining , socially enjoyable alt shot rounds . Tight lipped silent ones too . Lol . Cat got their tongue .

      Hard fought multiplayer Stroke play rounds . With 2 , 3 , 4 players of your peers . You may know all of them or none of them . So competitively challenging and fun . From joking around to learning about new cultures . Some light banter to full on insults . They can be so fun .

      Meeting players from dozens of countries around the world . Learning and sharing . Rich and rare opportunities to be cherished for a lifetime .

      Outstanding personalities that without this . We would never have been fortunate to experience .

      People/players/members that live this and relate to all this and more . Are the lucky majority . And most likely to appreciate what I speak about .

      Also more likely to be polite , good sports , humane , reasonable , accepting . And familiar with all the good and bad that is part of the game .

      This positive experience is unique . And possible because of the people/players/members of the WGT Universe . That many years ago saw and appreciated and understood the potential of what these creators of this online virtual golf game . Flash version at the time . PC version . With all the bells and whistles .

      Mega formats , Country Clubs , Open discussion forums . All of which took off and pushed unimaginable boundaries . Raised the bars . Became this WGT Universe .

      This is what I have seen in my time here .

      There is another world here . The Mobile version that started about 10 years ago .

      Many in that world . Never knew about any of what is mentioned above . No efforts were made to encourage the players in that format to learn about the real .

      No prompts to familiarize them with the system of ranking and tiering and averages .

      No mention of the GR8 open forums . Or the incredible multiplayer possibilities . .Because that version didn't offer what the PC version had in abundance . So no measures were taken to inform the mobile world .

      That was very bad planning and marketing .

      Now that our precious Flash version has been taken away .

      The plan for the game is to integrate the incredible features of the Flash version into what is possible into the new game format .

      Not an easy task .

      Now what to do with the masses ? The ever spoiled and entitled virtual online WGT ex flashers that we are .

      And what and who are these aliens ? Who know nothing about the real WGT . They seemed to have learned with a completely different manual . Do they even have agenda's ?

      They must . They are very good . XLNT in most cases . They have obviously played a considerable amount .

      But where are their scores ? Why are they mid level tiers ? With high averages ?

      How did they get such GR8 equipment ? Why does the next guy at the same level still have starters ?

      Why do they not want to chat ? How long have they been playing ? How did they get so good ?

      How can we bridge this gap with this new/old ? species ?

      WTF is going on ?

      Right ?

      Let's fix this .




    EDIT : This is only a comment I made at the beginning of the year . Take it only at face value .

      Okay . I'm not going to make a new thread about this . Because it is about Communication .

      It has come to my/our attention that some of us I would like to know how many .

      No longer receive email notification replies from forum posts , wall posts , PM messages .

      In other words , this is not working .

      This is a big problem . One I am not happy has not been fixed .

      I know others have stated this is happening to them as well .

      But IDK how wide spread this is .

      Member Services is very closed mouth about it .

      If you are having this issue . Please post here .

      Thank you
