***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***

Update 8/17 - New board going live today.

Update 8/14 - ***Migration work continues. Estimate Go Live to new board 8/17***


Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

    Putter, Yank, and DC, thanks for the help. I see the feedback score and I agree, the number is definitely on the low side, I had at least a feedback score of 49 (not sure why I'm remembering this number) prior to the site upgrade.

    I'm glad there is something, but my next question, is there a way to provide feedback going forward or is the score of 4 or 5 (or 1) based another metric rather than direct feedback submission by a user (buyer/seller/trader)?

    I would posit that the feedback score you see when hovering over one's avatar is not related to the BST. I have a feedback score of 3 but I've never even entered the BST forum. As such, I can't see how the feedback score that is now shown has any connection with, or relevance to, the BST.

    Ehh... it's more a function of my lack of motivation to take a bunch of pictures to sell stuff. However, I've got enough of a stockpile now that I'm going to have to give in or else my wife is going to start throwing stuff out. :smiley:

    It should be in the upcoming week but might be two. It will only be a score, nothing else at this point.

    The feedback numbers you see while hovering are not close to correct.

    The best way to do it right now is to post as a Comment in the member's profile.

    And yes, we all have 5 feedback at the moment. Presumably this is a placeholder for when the devs bring the static numbers over from the old site, but that's just me guessing.

    Makes sense, thanks.

    Is there historics of our previous feedback or would we all start over once its re-implemented?

    Yeah mine is 5. Should be north of 500...Sadly I was ranked in the top 10 on the site prior to the move.

    My guess is we will eventually get our actual B/S/T feedback number back but with none of the comments that make up our actual feedback score. I wonder if the feedback numbers mapped back will show a breakdown of positive/negative/neutral feedbacks. If not that's a huge benefit to those that have ripped off people, have negative feedback, and we are unable to see that information. I hope that's not the case. Based on how poorly this conversion has taken place I'll leave it at that.

    When is feedback going to be fixed? Giving everyone a 5 rating doesn't seem to be very informative.

    It is in development. Do not have an eta currently. Another developer has been hired and working on it.

    The issue we will have if we ever get our real feedback number from the previous WRX software is it appears it will be a static number without any breakdown of the feedback (+/-/neutral) along with none of the actual description left to match up to the associated transaction. That scenario lets any WRX member with any negative feedback off the hook and will allow those individuals to potentially to get over on WRX members again.

    People left me plenty of feedback on my profile over the last several months and none of it is still visible, so what purpose does that serve?

    Exactly. And those aren’t feedback related. There were several others prior to those 2 that are gone.


    I was also able to delete comments on other’s profiles at one point as well

    yeesh...still no feedback for BST. I'll leave commentary on the person's profile, but I was a little surprised it hadn't been implemented yet.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
