How Forum Testers Will Be Chosen


Message added by STUDque

Initially posted by @GolfSpy MPR

 

All,

I'm going to go ahead a lock this thread from further posts, just to keep new folks from getting confused and posting their testing applications here. My sincere thanks goes to those who continue to help our new members.

For those new: read the opening few posts in this thread; they are essential instructions for getting involved in this awesome community! If you are trying to apply for a test, go back to the thread announcing the opportunity and reply to that thread.

Good to bump this with testing starting and hoping many new ppl to the site take the time to read it and introduce themselves! 

I know we all get a kick out of the misposts and applications months after testing closes, but would be great for anyone new to take a extra moment to go through this and get some good first steps to becoming a potential tester! 

They are incredible opportunities and looking forward to seeing what the season has in store and following many of the reviews along the way.

It would be great to convert a few more, the more people conversing about our game the better. Besides that's how I started, found this place while researching irons, got excited by the thought of testing clubs and then found the joy of posting 😁😎

Didn't realize members got a chance to test products and keep them.  Did sign up for Galway bay gear testing.  Pretty cool!  Hopefully, someday I will get the opportunity to do a product test and review for MGS!  Did I mention I live and play in the rain capital of CANADA!?!?!?  😜

Cheers!!

They are pretty awesome opportunities! It's a great community here and the longer I've been around the more I've been hooked. That and the reviews that go up around really well done and a little more relatable I find then what you find online a lot of the time. 

I'll also take your rain capital over my wild weather here on the east coast of Canada!

Lots of people actually come here for the testing opportunities;  some actually discover that there is some good golf discussion and a great group of people that hang out here.

Thought it would be important to bump this up around this time....we're going to have some FANTASTIC testing opportunities this year and we really want to encourage everyone to apply.  

I understand that it can be discouraging not to be selected, but it's okay to apply for more than one test.

Looking forward to a great 2019 with you guys!

Heck, who doesn't???

 

 

Lots of new members here - so I hope you guys take a second or two to read this.  To have a chance at being selected, here are 3 basic requirements...

 

 

1. Have an avatar or profile picture - without one, your chances are kinda slim

 

2. Do an Intro post - introduce yourself to the gang. People here are friendly and ready to welcome new members.

 

3. Participate in some existing threads -- browse the different topics and share what's on your mind.  

 

Don't worry about being new -- everyone here was new at one time.  We're very proud of our community and we're anxious for you to be a part of it.

Gotta be careful with this one.  They tend to do a better job then the guys which in turn makes us look bad.  I do think a woman was selected last year for something but just can't remember for certain.

Even though this has been bumped a couple times recently, with more and more testing opportunities coming out it may be worth trying to keep this up high in the recent content... Good little read and great for those who are just joining and want an opportunity to get a chance to test.
