    This is what I should see when I view a profile to send personal messages to people that send them to me on a regular basis .

     

     

    This what I see . This is what I see for people who I have their emails , and people who message me regularly with a new subject . I would like to be able to do the same .

     

    You notice the " send message block is not " available to me . 

    The example with the message block I picked from a random profile .

     

    excerpt from another post:

    Not speaking about the forums at all just the old thread I was reading .

    Strange that issues just get left in the dirt without responses or follow ups . Often , as the problems get worse and worse 

    I have said before that the messaging formats here at WGT leave more than alot to be desired .

    Private messaging is non existant . Emailing is impossible .There aren't even links for them .

    Not user friendly at all.

    CC messaging is a complete joke .

    Please don't respond with the CC messaging process .

    Been a club owner long enough to know it doesn't work .

    Wgt has admitted it on many occasions . Many other owners have confirmed it .

    There are some other sites with WGT ties that have extensive messaging formats . Sites that don't make any money at all . With private messaging , Emailing , Chatrooms , Lobbies , Forums , etc .

    Multi millionare WGT can't even spend a buck to have their members communicate . 

    Very sad .

    Hire a couple Techs to revamp and completely upgrade the entire messaging system and the results would pay for it many times over .

    Unless you propose they charge for messaging, revamping anything isn't going to pay for a thing once, let alone "many times over."

    Just chop your friends to 255 and it will work a lot better. I know you don't want to but it's the only way out available.

    I might have to finally try that just to see if it fixes this particular messaging problem courteney .

      I like to keep the list of the players that have extended friend invites to me and ones I have invited as well during the course of play.

    A list that could and should be able to grow without limits .

    I disagree . Happy customers able to communicate without issues . Genarates a better sense belonging and worth , without frustration and generally leading to more spending . Rather than logging off with an attitude after a heated forum post .

    Back to the topic of messaging friends .

    It has already been difficult to limit my friends list to just over 400  ( It could be in the thousands by now if it weren't for the 255 limit . ) Remember those are names of players that extended an invite to me or vice versa during an enjoyable match maybe even a memorable one .

    Once that friend , player , accuiantance is deleted there is no chance of ever running into them again . None .

    Almost all of my multiplayer games are " join a game " because I enjoy the certainty that every player everyday is someone I have never seen before . ( nevermind that off topic remark )

    So YankeeJim  so sorry that you have taken such a complacent stand these days . I'm sure I speak for others when I say " GET WELL SOON " .

    Odd comment, nothing complacent here. Now if you want to talk realistic, there's some of that going on. The majority of my over 4000 rounds of AS come from random joins. That's how you meet new players and keep abreast of the basic attitudes with respect to this game as well as creating an opportunity to help others. Hardly complacent.

    I have between 240-250 friends on my list and every one of them plays. That's how they got on the list in the first place. And , like Courteney pointed out, I keep that list under 255 so I can actually follow those friends, get invites from them and invite them as well. It's called working within a system that obviously isn't going to change anytime soon. 

    I''d day try it but you seem to be too popular for the system.

     

    p.s., Let me know when  "Genarates a better sense belonging and worth , without frustration and generally leading to more spending" becomes a Balance Sheet item.

    Whatever . We all have different ways to connect with various different people for a variety of reasons here on WGT . 

    Popularity is certainly not on my list .

    Good grief forget about the personal profile messaging with the 255 name limlt on it .

    Try private messaging somebody , anybody . Can't do it . 

    Try emailing somebody , anybody . There aren't even links for these communications .

    Where is the chat room for players to meet up , check in , arrange matches chat , communicate ? Non existant . 

    How does someone in a CC communicate with other members , how do you even know if your CC members are online ? No way .

    There is no defense for this miserable sites lack of communication .

    There are other sites linked and not linked to WGT  that have all of those features . Extremely user friendly . Sites that make no money at all . Sites that respect the needs of their users .

    And you know I could go on and on . But why ?
