It is a good idea . Sometimes they work . I have a good one on my website . The chat went strong for about 2 years . Players from all over WGT ( ones registered in the website , or the chat would not be visible ) . Would be known to stop in . To chat with the members of the CC that might happen to be there .
You could be playing in a round . Click over to the chat . If there was someone there . You could arrange a match for after the one you were in . Or for the weekend . Or next week .
Or just chat about anything and everything .
I think that at the time especially . One reason for failure . Was that it is already quite a commitment one makes to WGT . It can be very involved . And at times consume you . But justifying that seems doable for most .
But to add another website into it . Aside from WGT. One you have to go to . Pay attention to . And learn when and what about the people there . Just to be able to connect . Is just asking too much of most of us . It is hard enough just to keep up with WGT stuff .
But with so many things changing . And with many WGTers . Realizing that connecting and communicating has been essential for many of us . To get more enjoyment in our experience .
Not expecting that connection and those communications . To decrease , downgrade , On levels much lower than we already had . And getting the message ( no message ) . That these issues are not priorities to them as much as they are to us .
This may be forcing some of us to look outside the box . At new and alternative solutions for the voids .
Good luck with it .
