    Welcome to the first Community Calendar presented by gaoerfuqiu1. I created this because it is obvious that there are too many tournaments in the Community-Organized Tournaments forum to keep track of. This is meant to be used for you the WGT player to find tournaments that they’d like to sign up for. I have lots of great ideas for this, as well as for tournaments of my own, and I put a lot of time and effort into this, so please enjoy and use accordingly!

    ---*** The below tournaments have no affiliation with World Golf Tour or its trademarks.***---

    ---***All other tournaments have not had activity for at least two days.***---


    NOTES: I would like to add a feature for the next update: reviews and ratings. From now on, please post a comment with reviews for tournaments YOU HAVE PLAYED IN. This means something like, “I give _________ four out of five stars because __________ and I really enjoyed it. I recommend playing in his/her tournaments.” Or something to a negative but constructive effect.



    Also, I’m hoping that from now on, new tournaments will first send me a message or post on my wall before posting it in this forum. I’m sure this calendar will get a lot of publicity, so for those tournaments that would like more than just a few people, come to me first and I can spread the word and get more sign-ups for you. So thank you very much and stay tuned for the next update.

    Yeah, okay, because you've had an account for all of one day and I've been a member for two months. I'm asking WGT to close your account, you're the second crackpot in two days to take separate credit for my community calendar, and I think you're the same person. If you are, STOP.

    ... and when folks suggested that this forum urgently needs moderators, the thread (initially) got deleted... That was back in the days when we did not have regular cyberwars waged in the forums.

    I was actually going to ask you to put that on here, but you did  it anyway.

    Wonder why they deleted the other threads?

    Wonder why they deleted the other threads?

    The answer to many problems related to this forum is: Because there are no forum moderators. It's also the answer to your question. Because there are no forum moderators, and there only seems to be some anonymous, and rather humorless, admin in the background, operating only in utter emergencies, whose job description probably doesn't even include "forum moderation" – well, then it's not surprising we often see legitimate threads & posts deleted without warning or justification. Any forum for a mass of users that believes it can survive without moderators is bound to be submerged in recurrent chaos. It's sad to see that WGT apparently does not mind this, or otherwise they would have made a reply to that persuasive, long thread calling for forum moderators to be installed.  

    Now that I have expressed this criticism, I don't expect this thread to survive much longer. Gonna get deleted within the next 24 hours, very likely. (I've just made an offsite backup of it to preserve Sabbath's screenshot.) It's so much easier to delete anyone pointing out a problem than actually resolve that problem!

    That's fine, I have it in my photobucket and local folder of course.

    But could you quit getting my funnys deleted? :] That's like three times now.

    Maybe they just can't afford to hire someone for moderation...but please, could we drop it here...

    Maybe they just can't afford to hire someone for moderation...

    I believe so. That's just the absurd thing about it, though. Nivlac, the ideal person to perform the job, has repeatedly offered his services for free, but there has never been any reply to that, as far as I'm aware. It may be that this forum software, which looks like an in-house product (and it's of high quality, despite its current flaws), does not yet provide all moderating tools that might be needed? But if it doesn't, the question remains as to why would anyone develop one's own in-house forum software if there aren't sufficient resources to ensure its standard functionality... WGT might have employed one of the existing customary forum software solutions, such as the free phpBB, and all the forum functionality would have been available for free, and bug-free, from the get-go. Volunteer moderators could begin their standard work right away.   

    Now, there being no moderators, I agree the least thing they could do is to stop deleting users' legitimate threads & posts at the whim of a second. Especially posts that evidently took some time for a forum user to create. If WGT finds a thread or post useless, let them lock it, not delete it. Or they might talk to the person to remind them what they did wrong. Let them ban offending users from the forum for a few days or weeks. Just deleting other people's work without a comment is no good because it discourages users from participating in this forum.
