2023: Want To Be a MGS Forum Tester? Read Here!

Message added by GolfSpy_APH,

DO NOT APPLY WITHIN THIS THREAD FOR TESTING

Want to make your own review on a product and follow our testing template? This is a generic template to follow, however uses the same star rating system that any of the "official reviews" will have for this season and moving forward. (half stars are okay as well). The generic template gives you the opportunity to be a little more creative while following the same general template we will use for any and all official tests.
Here it is: Member Review Testing Template

Please please use the search function before creating a new thread as many of these products/reviews can be posted into existing threads. We can add in a front end message like this one to the top of the thread linking your review to make it more visible on request as well. This helps us keep the forum cleaner and without too many repeating threads. 

Have more questions? Reach out to myself @GolfSpy_APH or any of the other mods via our staff page: Forum Staff 

2023 Update Post: HERE

Just a quick little note for everyone. 

This year so far we have selected 130 Testers for our Member Testing. 

Of the 130 Testers 60!!! have been brand new testers to our member testing platform. Truly incredible to have that many new member testing gear for the forum. 

Also I am pretty excited to say that we have provided over 70k in equipment to our members for testing so far this year. 

Thank you to all the brands who have jumped on board this year! It has been incredible and such a fun season with so much more to come!

Wow, that is impressive! Proud to be one of the newcomer testers. It is truly a blast to dive deep into products that I would have never known! Thank you to all of the OEMs and to all of the SPY Mod........Staff! Here's to many more years in the forum and many new faces joining the family!

Very insightful post on the entire process of being a “tester”. Being new to the whole thing, I didn’t know if it was random, selective, or if there were even marks or stipulations looked at to determine who would be chosen. 
Great stuff to know moving forward, as I’ve signed up for a couple in the past that caught my attention. Also glad to know that you guys demand and monitor the quality of work done by the chosen testers. 
Good Stuff 👍🏻

I know this if a few months old now but...

This is a great post to get a look into what is needed to be in the running to be selected. Even more so with being a new member and still figuring my way around.  I will surely check out the tester template for more insight.

Thanks for the tips:)

Glad you found this useful. 

We try to keep it as updated as possible, but the core requirements remain the same year over year. We have just been fortunate this year with the number of tests and in truth the activity of the staff we are able to find a lot of newer members who are active in different areas. It has been great to get so many new member involved and see some truly stellar reviews.

I'm a new member here and learning to navigate the site. I've been following MGS on Twitter for some time now and have entered many "testers wanted" tweets before knowing the entry rules above. I did receive a notice to become a member, so I joined! Lol, I'm old and not very computer savvy, but will keep at it.

I needed to read this level of detail. This is a great explanation and sounds like a well oiled machine on the inside

We do what we can!

We have great staff and are constantly looking at making improvements and help the testing experience be better, but also find easier ways to introduce new members into the system.

This has been an exceptional year and we expect that 2024 will hopefully have similar success. 

We are hard at work getting many of our contacts informed about 2024 and more.

This season we also created a feedback form for testers. It asks them to rate themselves, their participation and provide feedback on how to make the process easier or better for them and future testers.

They are posted in the tests in which they are selected for. 

Example lean lock putters the testers who were selected were announced in the main testing thread for that.

Here are all the threads.

https://forum.mygolfspy.com/forum/58-forum-testing-reviews/

Also any member who has successfully completed their review will have the tester 23 badge.

Great information on how to become a Product Tester and I love the encouragement regarding follow-up comments.  I have tested gilf balls for Titleist and Bridgestone but never he at MyGolfSpy!  Hopefully next year that will change!  Good luck to all.

Well folks with Sacks Parente up our season has come to a close from a main forum testing standpoint. It was an incredible season and a lot of fun (and work) along the way. 

We may have one or two more opportunities pop up between now and the new year but in terms of scheduled testing we are complete!

Thank you all and looking forward to 2024!
