    Ok, serious question… To all those who are not getting very involved on this forum.

    Why?

    What’s holding you back from joining in?

    I’m really curious. Genuinely curious.

    Feel free to PM me. I’m not a moderator or admin, so can’t ban you if you bag the place!

    I wonder if the layout / site navigation is an issue?

    Are us regulars a bit intimidating?

    No content of appeal? What would you like to see, and comment on?

    By the time you realise this part of my signature doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I think what surprises me most about the forum is the lack of discussion about the playing field, ie the golf course, and the amount (a lot) of discourse about what people scored.
    The ISG forum had a specific place for golf course discussion, albeit it wasn’t heavily populated compared to the days/weekend score updates.
    Do people care what other people scored? What’s with the obsession with this?
    Even more startling is the lack of discussion about tournament/professional golf. Do people care about that at all? We just had the most significant tournament ever held in the country and barely a word.
    Do people actually like golf? Or just play it for the score/handicap?

    Agreed, but that is why some of the guys have there own thread about how they are playing. If you want to read about their golf, you read the thread. If you don’t…. you don’t. Then we have the others who want to tell you about every game they play, what they scored, how many 1-2-3-4 putts they had etc. WGAF.

    If the thread .. The Golf Course is used properly, that could be the avenue you are looking for.

    There is generally some banter about Australian tournaments, mind you, not a lot in the scheme of things, with some general stuff on the USPGA stuff, very little on the European Tour. I think the majority on here pay attention to what is happening in the professional golfing world, but the forum chatter is minimal because it is possibly more a personal thing. For me, it is just that unless something out of the box happens, I just figure everybody else has watched and nothing to really write about.

    I may be totally wrong, but that is the beauty of a thread like this, feedback is very powerful when it is constructive. Well done Hack…

    Thanks for your honesty.

    You’ll see I started a thread about golf courses, see here:

    Tournament stuff… Start it! I’ll happily join in that discussion.

    As for the posting scores, etc. plus the journey threads, I think they have there place. I’m personally more interesting in the improvement and ‘how’ which as you’ll read is more the content of my journal / journey thread.

    Not sure why there are 3 different feeds for people to post their scores/how did you play, plus the journey threads in the “practice range”. Perhaps these can all be consolidated into one feed. It amuses me that people post how they played in the “golf course” feed but half dont even say which course they played let alone make any kind of comment on the course.
    That lack of joy is also evident – not too many posts say they enjoyed the game or the course etc despite the score.

    I’ve never found anything nice about wordpress.
    There’s plenty of good (& free) forum software out there, but it’s probably too late now.

    People say that nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.
    No championships worth mentioning in recent years.

    Thanks Koiom

    Wordpress and bbpress are built using PHP. Perhaps you mean a separate stand-alone forum built-in PHP?

    This site was built very simple and quick as a back up for ISG which we still dont have clear facts on what will happen to it.

    If/when and until we know what is happening there this is what we got. Several changes have been made already from member feedback and more can be done in the future once we know what the future looks like it bit more.

    If everyone can let me know very specific items for future upgrades well look to updated in the next version.

    OB not sure why a website would discharge your battery – first I heard fo something like that happening before anywhere.

    Hey Mike,

    Yeah I guess I am referring to separate forum site
    Much like any of the examples found here that use the phpBB format:
    https://www.phpbb.com/showcase/

    Everyone who’s ever been a member of any interwebz forum will feel immediatley at home on a site in this format and particpation will certainly increase

    It’s probably just all the graphics. In order to get rid of the unread tag, one has to open the page even if it’s of no interest. That downloads and displays all the picture ads which are also of no interest. Maybe the battery is getting a bit old and losing capacity.

    As for suggestions: a ‘mark all as read’ would help.

    I’m depressed.

    Every page you turn on this site, there is farking Charlotte Dawson and co…… enough of the repeated threads at the top of every single section of the forum.

    Every time you go to a new section you’ve got “page down” to escape the boring old crap that you don’t ever want to read.

    Just my thoughts ….
