ADMIN EDIT - 8 November 2018:
Ah, the rant thread. The perfect place to blow off steam. I'm sure most members of the forum have stopped in from time to time to tell about a frustrating experience in their daily life and, judging by the post count, we've got a lot to complain about. A thread like this is both good at bad.
Good because we can individually make ourselves feel better by releasing tension
Bad because we're taking that negative energy and distributing it to the forum membership
The MyGolfSpy forum is founded on good-natured discussion and information sharing. It's a place for support and positive energy. A big reason we support and will continue to support non-golf topics is because it allows each of us to make a deeper connection with our fellow golf fanatics that we may or may not ever interact with in the real world. These are opportunities for us to discover the human behind the nuts and bolts golf talk. The rant thread is one of the few places of negativity within MyGolfSpy and it's time to change that for the better. Does that mean it's being snuffed out? No. This thread has a deep history in the forum with many many examples of people helping people. It's not all bad; but when it is, it's pretty dark.
We think it's time for transition of this thread to a more positive atmosphere. This thread is now renamed to "Got Problems?" From this point forward, this thread will be a place where you can come to....rant about an issue you may be having; BUT ONLY IF you're seeking help from your fellow members. This will no longer be the place to come to complain and moan about whatever may be troubling you if you're not interested in a solution. Likewise, replies to these issue should be supportive in nature even if you don't have the solution. This is not the argument thread and that negative energy has no place on this forum.
This thread can continue to be non-golf. As we restructure the sub-forums (slowly), there will be increased support for non-golf topics that will be separate from the rest of the GOLF topics. Those who come here for golf, can remain in the golf domain and those that come here for everything, can experience everything.
