      Besides all the copy and pasting and hopping from site to site gathering info and editing trophies etc . I also get emails and messages from members and players and friends and not so much friends from all over WGT. You know me . I just cant respond with a simple 

      Thanx 

      Paul

      I have to write a  book about every  thing somebody asks me . All the time . That takes soo looong . It is just the way I do it .  So it is no wonder I can't see the invites from people . The same invites that I preach to everybody that they should consider accepting .

      I wish WGT would enable some kind of sound like a fire alarm or an air horn or a fog horn or a siren on the invite icon . ( joking ) Or maybe add an invite icon to the top and bottom of the tab pages .  Possibly a notification like . ( not joking )

      " A MEMBER IS INVITING YOU TO A MULTIPLAYER MATCH IN OUR INVITE SYSTEM . TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE PLEASE CLICK HERE ".

      I get messages like the one below too often . The sad thing is nobody wants to accept invites more than I do . Those multiplayer matches are my best times here on WGT . I just can't see  the invites . 

      I explain that I just didn't see them . Most do not believe me . This is and has been a WGT wide problem forever . Most times the green available only means that one is logged on to WGT. If they do not see the invite . They are most likely surfing , or typing , or going to the bathroom , or at Walmart . . They are not sitting there waiting to ignore or decline your invite .

    Copying from your "private" WGT CC forum and pasting to your "public" independent CC site is redundant to the extreme.

    Which you ask for.  "I want YOU to message ME"  

    You're making all this extra work for yourself!  And then you complain about it?  Sheesh!

    Because YOU can't properly manage your green light status to say you're busy when you ARE busy, you ask WGT to add annoying sounds to an invite that ALL OF US (who properly manage our status) will then need to deal with. 

    As usual, it's all about pdb1.

    And say hi to Heidi Klum for me when she joins your CC.

      Has nothing to do with it . I have half as many as I used to . 

    andyson:
    And then you complain about it? 

      Nope not complaining at all . that is the way I get things  done . I am sure just the same as any owner . 

    andyson:

      I was almost joking about the annoying sounds . I have sounds disabled in WGT anyways  . But  the relocation and addition of the invite icon , and a notification are very real and serious suggestions . It is too bad that you have intimidated the entire WGT world so much that they will not come here and confirm my issues ever . They wouldn't take a chance against you all . This is very confirmed BTW . I have been told this countless times . COUNTLESS . Means more than I can count .

      I shouldn't have to manage my green light status . If some one wants to invite me . The only way for me to know this is  a little tiny rectangle barely visible and only if you are on the right part of one page . How is that working out for everyone in WGT ? 

      Not well . I talk to many CC owners that have the same problems and always have . In fact i have been told by the owners of active and popular 250 member CC's that alt shot is so difficult to get anyone on the same page on . That very little effort is put toward that mode .. Because of the very difficult to accept invite system . That is one of the main reasons why alt shot is not ever included in independent tournaments . This is true . One who  uses the " create a game " and or " find a game " features using the random modes with the " best match or " anyone " selections would not have these problems  

      Andyson If you continue to try and discredit me . I will stop . I will just leave WGT and my CC . There is so much BS all around . You are not a CC owner . You have no idea about any of the things I have talked about for the last couple of years . 

      You are so fcking annoying . Knowing that i have to battle you makes me want to puke . If your intention is to drive me out of WGT as you have successfully single handedly done to members on many occasions . Then you may be close to doing that . 

      The above posting is none of your concern because you can not comprehend it . So STFU please .

    It is never a problem for me, my CC buddies or friends in general.

    Our CC has a regular alt shot tournament without any invite problems. We also have many  members who play alt shot together every day, again without any invite problems.

    Yes he really can.

     . 

      I am not surprised and happy to hear that 

      There is no doubt that there are some very dedicated and loyal and willing to do the work CC's full of players that get it . That is admirable . But far from the norm . Really . Most WGTers don't have it like that . I used to think it was just my CC . But even at our best during 2015 . It wasn't easy to pull off . We had several alt shot tourneys as well . 

      That group has moved on and I have inquired of many many other players throughout WGT . It seems that many do not have much luck in the inviting of CC members and or friends from their lists . There are many factors that come into play . Not just the difficulty in getting invites accepted from the desired player . The willingness to be available at the ideal times is lacking in a very noticeable way . Attitudes have changed site wide . Could be a result of the inability to complete a multiplayer round as disconnects continue to plaque this format as much or more than any other . A big problem all around for everyone . 

      You have to have noticed the impact these glitches have had . Then I come back to the frustration of missing for whatever reason the much wanted and anticipated invite . That can only be seen in that little tiny rectangle in the " PLAY NOW " left side flash player area in the tab window . I could have missed 5 invites just now writing this response . The current notifying little green rectangle completely evades any tasks or necessary moving around to perform any number of routine and necessary tasks that many find necessary to do on a regular basis . There is no disputing this . As much as I keep checking mine . I still miss a majority on a daily basis . It just makes sense in so many ways to have a more attention getting notification .

      Yes both are notions are ridiculous . As ignorant as he acts . I respond with as much contempt . 

    PaulTon:

      Of course not . But it does require looking at every scenario in a completely different perspective than a normal player ever would consider . And the better the owner . The more of this is very evident . That's just a given . 

      As perfect as your CC is and runs , and a good amount of others as well . There are 100 times as many that encounter the opposite results . Maybe more . I know it will be a cold day in hell when WGT takes its sites off of you upstanding perfect running like " dradles " CC's and care about the problems that don't generate revenue issues that the rest of us incur as a lifestyle on an everyday basis here on WGT . 

      It is what it is . I don't make these obvious states of affairs up . I observe and listen and this is what I see .

    Wasn't necessary as I comprehed just fine.  Although now I see you backed off being serious about adding the air horn sounding.  So that's progress.

    Likely because you have half as many CC members as you used to have.

    pdb1:
    I shouldn't have to manage my green light status .

    But, like the rest of us, you do need to manage it as you are missing invites.  Don't go green if you are busy doing other stuff where you might miss an invite.  AND If you see CC members are green then stop what you are busy with and send them invites.  This makes sense since you are emphasizing internal CC play among members you might give it higher priority. This is not rocket science either!

    pdb1:
    Because of the very difficult to accept invite system .

    pdb1:

    Lots of public CC vs CC matches, lots of multi-player games being played, so the invite system is working quite well thank you!

    Remember when WGT effed up the invite system and invites weren't being received?  What a mess that was!    If it ain't broke don't fix it!  WGT's track record on changes is not good, so leave it alone.

    pdb1:
    If your intention is to drive me out of WGT as you have successfully single handedly done to members on many occasions .

    That's BS!  Back it up with evidence!  Your posts are full of unsubstantiated exaggerations.  The last time you tried that tactic I showed you were full of it!

    In that classic pdb1 thread "I MEAN WHAT I SAY NOT WHAT YOU READ" lol, you gave some specifics (the falling off the turnip truck incident) and you said I was responsible with driving out that member.  I was not even remotely involved!  Pffft!

      Yes . I thought air horns and sirens were a feasible request . Glad I have you to straighten me out

      Wrong again andyson .

      That's what all the mob bosses say when they get their henchmen to do their dirty work . Lol .
