I am not the most computer savvy person in the world I have noticed after the site was off line for a short period that the format has changed some. Actually I like it.
My question is Why does some funny little symbols appear in some of the comments? I do not have any of those symbols on my computer and can not see where they are doing anything but annoying me when trying to read a post. I also see we do not have a signature or equipment list at the end of our posts either. No problem just curious
Just in time for the new year, we're ready to roll out the next change to the forum structure. We strive to help create the best user experience possible for our members. With the 2 new mods on board, we took a hard look at areas of relatively high usage and areas of relatively low usage. Some areas were expanded and others were condensed with the primary goal in mind to spread the load.
The tricky thing about this one is that one change had a waterfall effect on other areas so the change is larger than originally intended. This is the biggest one yet so it may take a little adjusting. Rest assured that nothing is gone, it's just been moved. See below for the summary:
Recent Articles from the Blog
Woods: Drivers, FW, and Hybrids
Irons and Wedges
Bags and Carts
Golf Apparel (Fashion & Style)
Lessons, Drills, Mental Game, and Fitness Tips
Training Aids, Apps, and Gadgets
Golf Rules Discussion
Club Fitting and Repair
DIY Golf Projects
As you can see, some sub-forums have moved between or into these two areas. This should give the forum a more condensed look without having so many areas to choose from. As the waterfall continued, now is the time to roll out the Member Community. This will be an expanded place to connect with each other on all levels. One of the great things about MGS is you can get to know others beyond their playing specs and truly get to know them.
We have additional ideas for the Member Community that will roll out at a later date once finalized. For now, please see below for the summary of changes to the current state:
What’s in your bag?
Coupons and Contests
Arrange a Game with Fellow Spies
As a staff, we recognize the fact that change is not always easy. We debated hard about these changes and have come to agreement that we feel this is the best path moving forward. If you're having issues getting adjusted, @GolfSpy Stroker @GolfSpy MPR @Golfspy_CG2 and myself are here to help. Shoot us a PM or comment in this thread and we'll help you work through.
