OFFICIAL THREAD - "The MyGolfSpy Lottery"

That sucks, I didn't see that coming, but I always tend to underestimate peoples shadiness. I thought that there weren't very many reviews. I think Tyks idea is good. A minimum of 10 or 25 posts to enter, then if you win, you have to provide credit card information. Maybe get two warnings (giving them a chance to respond) before they are charged in full for the product.

problem with the credit card is that shady people would just do a chargeback, so unfortunately this would most likely not be the best option.

CC# + Social Security # + Drivers License Number?

 

Or would we be getting too Orwellian? :lol: :)

Make the person post a picture of their drivers license, while holding it next to their head, to verify it is actually them. Then if they stiff you on the club, we hunt them down and beat them with said club.

Call all of the courses in the town where they live and make tee times in their name. Repeat often. Once they are no shows multiple times at the courses, they will have a hard time getting out with the looted gear.

what about a different standard for the loaners than the keep stuff. Maybe for the bigger testers, have the 100 posts minimum and CC# and 10 posts for the keepers


Nothing helps you find a lost ball better than a provisional hit straight down the middle.

Please read from the beginning. The current round of the lottery has ended.

I think we should post their usernames and email that's on file. We can find them from that and file a report with their local police for theft.

 

As for the next round, require eBay id's to verify how they conduct themselves with goods, and require full contact info including a phone number. A driver's license photo is another idea.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

Yes there will be another round Sactown. Unfortunately there were a few people that got clubs to review and kept the clubs without every reviewing the equipment or responding to our emails.

 

We will look into fixing this in the 2nd round.

 

Surely you must have been aware that Pollyana's world never existed ?

 

More than a few of the recipients must have found it too troublesome to make a review and return the items won. I stayed out purposely to avoid the expense.

I almost did that. I was just going to withdraw if I got one of the "not to keep" items.

 

For the second round I think it should be restricted to people with high point counts, and who have been here a while. I mean, no one thinks sactown or A2G is going to steal anything.

 

I would be against Ebay accounts or credit card number because, well, I don't have either of those. I would also be against credit card number or SSN because, quite frankly, I wouldn't feel safe giving those out, no matter to whom I was giving them.

I'll vouch for Jamo being lottery trustworthy , but I reserve the right to steal everything :)

Why would you be against an eBay account, so people can look at your feedback and judge your character? And why would you be against providing a credit card so that you could be held liable in the event you decide not to fulfill your end of the deal? He's not going to put a hold on the card while you have it, but it does provide some recourse. I, personally, would like to see eBay accounts required to sell here since there is no feedback section on the site. I think if people aren't willing to provide MGS with a form of recourse against theft, they should be disqualified.

He is only against ebay ID or credit card because he does not possess either and still wants to participate.

Like I said, I don't have an Ebay account or a credit card. And I'm not giving my debit card number to anyone, no offense MGS. I'll give my address, license photo, Facebook friend request, whatever. But I would be very much against a card number and, like I said, I don't have an Ebay account. If that qualifies me, so be it. I would only want to do any of the "keeper" trials anyways, the shipping of the item to the next person would be a dealbreaker for me, as would a card number.

Dont worry guys we will come up with something that is fair for everyone. But for who suggested this should only be open to members with high post counts, remember that this is supposed to be a lottery for everyone. But the point is well taken there most likely will be a post count needed different from the way we did it originally.

 

The issue with the 1st lottery drawing was that the forum had just launched. We might not be doing another club lottery until weather breaks for the majority of golfers. Although we might do an accessory or gadget lottery in the meantime.
