Tons of new Spies

I will say it is a bit daunting to join such an active community, for fear of ridicule for posts. I had to overcome that in order to get involved, once I did I was amazed at the acceptance here. Genuine advice when you ask and support for new members! Love this place.

I think it's the stigma associated with keyboard ninjas. My first post asking questions in the club building section was obvious answered by someone not of the troll variety, so kudos to MGS already!

+1 one on this. I'm a regular poster on the golf subreddit but lurk(ed) here and wrx just as much. Finally decided to make the jump to create an account. Who knows, maybe I'll get picked for the challenge, clearing the budget for more time on the course this year, but if not, I'm happy to actually start contributing here too. 

 

I have to admit, I've lurked a fair while but was definitely drawn in by the Cobra challenge. After my main playing partner picked up the F8+ driver and 5w I have been reading a lot of literature around them wherever possible; I was like a moth to a flame..

Seeing a good golf forum is definitely appealing, because as much as I love trawling reddit, there are only so many 'rate my swing' and 'near hole in one' posts I can stomach.

I may be one of the last remaining people on earth who haven't done reddit.  I started to a few times and then just felt I didn't know where to start, and came back to the friendly and comfortable atmosphere of MyGolfSpy, now Facebook that's a whole different animal.   It's almost embarrassing to see people who you thought were pretty sane rational people express some pretty eye opening statements.

I think I got a 100 or so posts this past week welcoming people lol. Most of these people joined due to the cobra challenge and they read the how to get picked thread so they all created intro threads. My guess is less than 5% will stay but I hope I'm wrong

I joined last week just for that, but I love it so far. Already learned some useful drills and downloaded The Grint which I'd never heard of before. Thanks everyone for being so welcoming!

We love to give testing opportunities to new members--and any member who shows a genuine interest in contributing regularly and shows they have intent on sticking around.  What's regularly?  There's honestly no number attached to it, but it's one of those things we know it when we see it.   

 

So join in, start new treads, contribute to new ones, ask questions, give answers if you know it,--just don't bump old threads from three years ago--that's a joke--just to be clear  :D

That's awesome.  if you don't get picked for Cobra, stick around.  I promise you there are many more testings to come over the next few months!!

Thankfully, my 9 to 5 is in the social media field and comes with a wonky schedule, so it affords me plenty of opportunity to pop in and out on most of the major golf forums, vlogs, podcasts, etc. ;) I've always been turned off by the stuffy-ness over on wrx that's a bit too intimidating at times, and reddit refreshes so quick you can never have a decent discussion on a topic before it fizzles out. There seems to be a decent middle ground here which has been helpful when poking around for specific equipment information, so looking forward to poking in here and there when I have something of value to add, especially beyond the equipment-specific topics.

I'm just happy to have all the new people. It took me over half an hour to welcome everyone before work this morning. That was pretty cool.

 

I don't know why you joined but I'm glad you're here. Stick around and enjoy!

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I know what you mean, and golfmonthly is run by cliques and an old boys/mans club intent on keeping out new blood (or so i percieve and you know what they say about perception) I unfortunately found the Mizuno forum just as bad, the moderators are all buddies and back each other no matter what has been posted- shame really as both these forums could have been so good.

 

I agree with thatkyle that MGS seems to be a welcome middle ground. Time will tell but I get a good vibe about this place and I'm not usually wrong

I spent a little bit of time on the Mizuno forum last year when I was testing the JPX900 Hot Metals.    I asked a couple very legit questions that never got answered but yet, I noticed a lot of the back and forth that you mentioned among the moderators and other members.    I left and didn't go back.

 

I think in time, you'll see your instincts  about MGS will be proven to be correct.

If you're talking about the MGS app, there is a tab for "Participated" threads that can make it easier to track your responses. The notifications go in waves. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.

I joined after the Cobra marketing thread on twitter. Glad I did as I like forums (talking golf) but some I joined before were full of 'ego's and - I'll just say it - bullying, for want of a better word. Little cliques that ganged up if you had a contrary opinion. MGS seems way better so I hope to be here and contribute.

 

I think my avatar pic goes nicely with being in My Golf SPY lol

Yeah we're more of a big click! :)
