Owner’s Objectives

It's been a while since I expressed some of my objectives for the CC . First of all I like and respect everyone that joins our club . I realize that not everyone knows what a CC is all about . Many have different reasons for joining . I really don't know how many of the other clubs are run . They are all different . What I want to emphasize in our CC is that whatever tier you are . That you feel comfortable here , part of a team of players that come here to find conditions that enable them to improve their game , hone their skills , lower their scores ,lower their averages , move up in tiers . Enjoyably and comfortably with the conditions that challenge them enough to keep that drive without the frustrationsof regular game play . All that is completely possible by either creating those tourneys yourself or by messaging me about it . Or someone else in your tier that has been creating tourneys . Any kind of information that you need to know should be provided here , any kind of appp , calculator , help , tutorial , tournament , statistic , message , opinion , gripe , compliment , etc , etc . Should able to be aqcuired here ( or in our website , as it may be easier there ). With your help , all of this can be done easily . We already have a good start . I am going to be here for a very long time trying to achieve all this . For any of you that think it's a good direction for your CC to go in . Then lets keep on keepin on . Sincerely , Your Co team member PDB1 , Paul ( sitting here on a rare rainy day ) May the SUN always be with you

      Besides all the copy and pasting and hopping from site to site gathering info and editing trophies etc . I also get emails and messages from members and players and friends and not so much friends from all over WGT. You know me . I just cant respond with a simple 
      Thanx 
      Paul
      I have to write a  book about every  thing somebody asks me . All the time . That takes soo looong . It is just the way I do it .  So it is no wonder I can't see the invites from people . The same invites that I preach to everybody that they should consider accepting .
      I wish WGT would enable some kind of sound like a fire alarm or an air horn or a fog horn or a siren on the invite icon . ( joking ) Or maybe add an invite icon to the top and bottom of the tab pages .  Possibly a notification like . ( not joking )
      " A MEMBER IS INVITING YOU TO A MULTIPLAYER MATCH IN OUR INVITE SYSTEM . TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE PLEASE CLICK HERE ".
      I get messages like the one below too often . The sad thing is nobody wants to accept invites more than I do . Those multiplayer matches are my best times here on WGT . I just can't see  the invites . 
      I explain that I just didn't see them . Most do not believe me . This is and has been a WGT wide problem forever . Most times the green available only means that one is logged on to WGT. If they do not see the invite . They are most likely surfing , or typing , or going to the bathroom , or at Walmart . . They are not sitting there waiting to ignore or decline your invite .

    Copying from your "private" WGT CC forum and pasting to your "public" independent CC site is redundant to the extreme.

    Because YOU can't properly manage your green light status to say you're busy when you ARE busy, you ask WGT to add annoying sounds to an invite that ALL OF US (who properly manage our status) will then need to deal with. 
    As usual, it's all about pdb1.
    And say hi to Heidi Klum for me when she joins your CC.

      Has nothing to do with it . I have half as many as I used to . 
    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote andyson:
    And then you complain about it? 
      Nope not complaining at all . that is the way I get things  done . I am sure just the same as any owner .

      I was almost joking about the annoying sounds . I have sounds disabled in WGT anyways  . But  the relocation and addition of the invite icon , and a notification are very real and serious suggestions . It is too bad that you have intimidated the entire WGT world so much that they will not come here and confirm my issues ever . They wouldn't take a chance against you all . This is very confirmed BTW . I have been told this countless times . COUNTLESS . Means more than I can count .
      I shouldn't have to manage my green light status . If some one wants to invite me . The only way for me to know this is  a little tiny rectangle barely visible and only if you are on the right part of one page . How is that working out for everyone in WGT ? 
      Not well . I talk to many CC owners that have the same problems and always have . In fact i have been told by the owners of active and popular 250 member CC's that alt shot is so difficult to get anyone on the same page on . That very little effort is put toward that mode .. Because of the very difficult to accept invite system . That is one of the main reasons why alt shot is not ever included in independent tournaments . This is true . One who  uses the " create a game " and or " find a game " features using the random modes with the " best match or " anyone " selections would not have these problems  
      Andyson If you continue to try and discredit me . I will stop . I will just leave WGT and my CC . There is so much BS all around . You are not a CC owner . You have no idea about any of the things I have talked about for the last couple of years . 
      You are so fcking annoying . Knowing that i have to battle you makes me want to puke . If your intention is to drive me out of WGT as you have successfully single handedly done to members on many occasions . Then you may be close to doing that . 
      The above posting is none of your concern because you can not comprehend it . So STFU please .

    Our CC has a regular alt shot tournament without any invite problems. We also have many  members who play alt shot together every day, again without any invite problems.

     . 
      I am not surprised and happy to hear that 
      There is no doubt that there are some very dedicated and loyal and willing to do the work CC's full of players that get it . That is admirable . But far from the norm . Really . Most WGTers don't have it like that . I used to think it was just my CC . But even at our best during 2015 . It wasn't easy to pull off . We had several alt shot tourneys as well . 
      That group has moved on and I have inquired of many many other players throughout WGT . It seems that many do not have much luck in the inviting of CC members and or friends from their lists . There are many factors that come into play . Not just the difficulty in getting invites accepted from the desired player . The willingness to be available at the ideal times is lacking in a very noticeable way . Attitudes have changed site wide . Could be a result of the inability to complete a multiplayer round as disconnects continue to plaque this format as much or more than any other . A big problem all around for everyone . 
      You have to have noticed the impact these glitches have had . Then I come back to the frustration of missing for whatever reason the much wanted and anticipated invite . That can only be seen in that little tiny rectangle in the " PLAY NOW " left side flash player area in the tab window . I could have missed 5 invites just now writing this response . The current notifying little green rectangle completely evades any tasks or necessary moving around to perform any number of routine and necessary tasks that many find necessary to do on a regular basis . There is no disputing this . As much as I keep checking mine . I still miss a majority on a daily basis . It just makes sense in so many ways to have a more attention getting notification .

    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote PaulTon:

      Of course not . But it does require looking at every scenario in a completely different perspective than a normal player ever would consider . And the better the owner . The more of this is very evident . That's just a given . 
      As perfect as your CC is and runs , and a good amount of others as well . There are 100 times as many that encounter the opposite results . Maybe more . I know it will be a cold day in hell when WGT takes its sites off of you upstanding perfect running like " dradles " CC's and care about the problems that don't generate revenue issues that the rest of us incur as a lifestyle on an everyday basis here on WGT . 
      It is what it is . I don't make these obvious states of affairs up . I observe and listen and this is what I see .

    Wasn't necessary as I comprehed just fine.  Although now I see you backed off being serious about adding the air horn sounding.  So that's progress.

    Likely because you have half as many CC members as you used to have.
    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote pdb1:
    I shouldn't have to manage my green light status .
    But, like the rest of us, you do need to manage it as you are missing invites.  Don't go green if you are busy doing other stuff where you might miss an invite.  AND If you see CC members are green then stop what you are busy with and send them invites.  This makes sense since you are emphasizing internal CC play among members you might give it higher priority. This is not rocket science either!

    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote pdb1:

    Lots of public CC vs CC matches, lots of multi-player games being played, so the invite system is working quite well thank you!
    Remember when WGT effed up the invite system and invites weren't being received?  What a mess that was!    If it ain't broke don't fix it!  WGT's track record on changes is not good, so leave it alone.
    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote pdb1:
    If your intention is to drive me out of WGT as you have successfully single handedly done to members on many occasions .
    That's BS!  Back it up with evidence!  Your posts are full of unsubstantiated exaggerations.  The last time you tried that tactic I showed you were full of it!
    In that classic pdb1 thread "I MEAN WHAT I SAY NOT WHAT YOU READ" lol, you gave some specifics (the falling off the turnip truck incident) and you said I was responsible with driving out that member.  I was not even remotely involved!  Pffft!

      Yes it's gr8 stuff . But it is no cure for what plagues me . I continue ( as I have for years now ) missing many invites per day . Very regretfully so . As I consider myself available and on WGT . Anxious to accept . But I have no way to know I am being invited .

    There is a very simple solution to your problem. Get Maxthon browser and utilise it's split screen function, no more missed invites.

      I already have Maxthon and the split screen function that I use everyday . Hadn't considered leaving it open as a viewer to the WGT tab pages or game client . . That is a very good idea and solution . Thank you for that . Am excited to see who's invites I can pick up .

     You have blocked 230,231 ads ! 
    Each time I reinstall Maxthon this number starts over . So it is closer to 2,000,000 . Have been over 750,000 a couple times Without blocking the ads . I get much more slow loading and disconnects .

    I don't know how Andy was doing his way, he'll probably tell us later when he sees this.

    Wow . Look at all those Ads . Haven't seen them for years .
    They don't bother me in the forums at all and I use a different browser and set up for the game.  And since I've not bought credits with $ in almost 3 years I figure its the least I can do to support WGT's revenue.
    Look at all your CC members available on your friends list!  If playing with CC members is sooo important to you (the real topic of this thread!), why aren't you inviting them to play you W⚓?

    Really PT?  Open a second forum window by right clicking on the bookmark and selecting Open in a New Window.  Resize that window to only show the friends list and move the new window to the far left.  Then resize this window to make it a bit narrower and show the new window.  Its easier to do than describe....;o)

    Henry Kawa (commonly known as the number 1 best player of all time, who has ever lived), has reached another milestone > 4000 friends.
    I have decided not to ever return to the FORUMS, however, my friends were waiting for this day to come, when I will reach number 4000, so I only returned, this time, out of courtesy to my friends.   I will not make this announcement on any of the other threads, so please let others know.
    Good bye (likely forever).
    "The One and Only", HENRY KAWA, signing off!

      Not that it is any of your business andyson . But since you asked . 2 of those three are my most frequently played members . But i know you know already that what i speak about the invites being so hard to achieve amongst the ones that you want to be available and be available for at the exact right times  is the truth throughout WGT . I miss at least 5 times more than I am able to accept . In fact andyson . It is a rare moment that i have available to send an invite . Obviously while I am posting something or recording something or creating something or answering something or already playing would not be a good time to send an invite . .But those may be good times for me to accept an invite. .

Which puts you back to square one . 
      It is not always possible to even click fast enough to accept a 5 second invite 
      May I remind E 1 that sending someone a 5 second invite is not long enough for some one to acknowledge , finish typing a sentence , click out of what they were doing , and respond before you cancel the invite . The last 10 invites  that have been sent to me were the 5 second variety . Give me a break please .

    This might be another case of "YOU MEAN WHAT YOU SAY NOT WHAT I READ" but here goes anyway.....
    I read "Its not a good time for you to send an invite while you are busy doing something else, however even while you are busy doing something else that may be a good time for you to accept an invite."  In other words, You can't stop what you are doing to set up and play a game with CC members, but you can stop what you are doing to accept an invite.  You don't want to go thru all the rigmarole of setting up a game and then waiting for the CC member(s) to accept or not.

    Did I read that right? Or is it "doing my stuff is way too important to waste any time inviting you"?

    Don't touch the resized 2nd window and adapt the size of any other application to keep it visible.  It works if you give it time for you to get used to it.  I do it all the time myself.
    Or ScottHope has another Maxthon method using a pop-up window method that always stays on top of the screen.  Watch his video at the bottom of this thread.

    No give us a break please....C'mon Really?  5 second invites?  Your last 10 have all been 5 second invites?  I've never sent a 5 second invite myself nor have I witnessed a host sending a 5 second invite.  You're seeing a conspiracy of your CC members sending 5 sec. invites just to p*ss you off! (now there's an idea!)
    If you had your game client already open you could accept the invite first then go back and clean up or finish what you were doing.  (I think that's the way it would work IIRC but not positive)

      Well I know you have limitations on comprehension . Yes it is what i said . only because i have invited 100 more times than anyone you know . So i don't have a problem not taking every minute i have to send invites .

    Progress!  You're actually saying you're too busy to stop what you're doing and send an invite, but NOT too busy to accept an invite and play.  Therefore, friends must invite you, you don't do invites.

    only because i have invited 100 more times than anyone you know .
    (I'll ignore the exaggeration as I do know YankeeJim who has played 5600+ Alt Shot games compared to your 460+.)
    And you justify being done sending invites because you've invited lots in the past. (at least in your own mind)
    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote pdb1:
    So i don't have a problem not taking every minute i have to send invites . 
    Oooh, double negatives are tough.....
    Basically, you do have a problem wasting your precious time sending invites to your friends.
    Damn, must be real important stuff you do with your time!  Posting 9500 times in the forums? Making you said like 2,000 trophies for your CC? Removing, as you've said, over 230 members from your CC to get it down to the tight 26 members you now have.  All that work you do searching for new members, posting your ad on their wall and inviting them to join.  More wall posts when they do accept. etc. etc.....  IIRC you had 33 CC members in January.  How's all that important stuff you're doing working out for you?

    Even among all the contradictions and obfuscation in pdb's post that one stuck out to me. What an utterly ridiculous statement to make!
    As an aside, I often wonder how much alt shot other people play (but not enough to go looking at profiles).
    I just edge ahead of Jim with an impressive/very sad 5837.

      okay . I have invited many more times than any one i know . I don't remember mentioning alt shot . By far the fewest number of invites on my list . Also the least played format . but definitely the most enjoyable .

      Some may have been 10 or 20 seconds . And likely not any from CC members . Who know better . This is a very frequent and frustrating occurrence for all WGT players .
      The hasty inviting host impatiently cannot wait long enough to see if you accept and frantically goes through a number of players not giving them time to accept .

      Not so ridiculous . My invites also amount into the thousands . If you see I edited it to say " more than anyone I know " . Which validates that I can ask others to invite me and make the effort . Not andysons assumptions that i only will take the time to accept rather than invite . 
      Amongst my 5000 stroke play rounds and 1000 match play and 500 altshot rounds . Way over half of them were played with the " create a game " . Invites by me . Maybe twice that amount were unsuccessful ( actually 3 times that would be more accurate ). So at the very least and I think many more . That comes to over 6000  successful and unsuccessful invites . So now tell me I don't have any experience with invites .

      Lol . For your information . " The 5 second invite " is the title of the same topic that i wrote a long article for my CC about around a year and a half ago . It refers to any amount of time that would not give one enough time to accept . 
      I always admit when i am wrong andyson . Always . Again you have no clue what you are talking about . All I did was clarify it for your comprehension . No back pedaling going on . 
      Anyone else reading it completely understands . As I know you do too . It is so ridiculous for you to continue to try and discredit me . Especially on something like this . i mean do you know how stupid you look ?

    Mine woulda been shorter. "Give folks a couple of minutes to accept."
    What's stupid is is leaving your available light on while you're off doing something else so you miss invites then blaming the system.

      You just can't resist opening a can of worms . Yes the system that we currently have is faulty . We , me , you the players are faulty . The mix isn't good and anyone that says it works fine is either an andyson or they have never used it .

      For myself , when I am engaged in other tasks . i would be remiss to place myself unavailable . As I would not want to miss the possibility to accept a rare invite . Yes many of the invites that could be missed are ones that I may never get a chance to play again .
      I used to keep friends list at over 700 for fear that i would miss that rare invite from a long lost friend ( WGT friend ) which really amounts to thousands . 
      But when i started a CC . It became more important to me to keep my friends list under the Magic 255 to enable PM's for all of my members . 
      Along with the chance that i would forget to change my status back from unavailable . Which happens every time . Thus possibly missing more important invites . There is no chance that i am going to purposely change my status to anything other than available . People do not come online because I am green . But they do invite when they are online because I am green . I try not to miss them . But it happens . I think as I have mentioned there could be some improvement in the way we are notified . Like simply an icon at the top and bottom of the page . Or a pop up notification stating that a member is currently inviting .

      You just can't resist opening a can of worms .
    Hello?  McFly? You opened the can two weeks ago with your original post!  Did you forget?
    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote pdb1:
    Yes the system that we currently have is faulty .
    It works well enough for thousands of us to enjoy multi-player games every day.
    In this thread, you've been given a couple of methods on how other players are able to multi-task while their status is available and not miss invites.  You've rejected those methods since you can't adapt and change how you work.
    You say you wrote a long CC post called "5 second invites" which was all about giving enough time to answer invites.  I'll bet that was triggered by you missing invites and contained a lecture from you to your CC members on how they need to change and adapt when inviting you.
    The fact is if one misses several invites from the same person you'll get less, if any, invites from that person in the future.  It's human nature, the old saying: "Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice shame on you.".
    You want WGT to spend resources enhancing a system that works for thousands of players but not you.  While there are more serious. real problems that affect everyone needing WGT's attention.
    You're tilting at windmills again.  It's not a big problem.  It's not something we want WGT messing with, we don't need invites broken again like in July of last year.   Deal with it like the rest of us do.
    That sums it up for me.  Go ahead, make your long post telling me I'm wrong, call me names, like you always do, whatever.  I'm done talking to a brick wall on this thread.

      I respectfully ( why i do not know ) disagree again andyson . Big surprise

    In this thread, you've been given a couple of methods on how other players are able to multi-task while their status is available and not miss invites.  You've rejected those methods since you can't adapt and change how you work.

      Actually have tried both suggestions . They were more of a nuisance after a while .

      It was written long before I myself ever had a problem with the missed invites . But rather in response to a few CC members that had been experiencing this problem and had PMed me about it . 
    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote andyson:
    You want WGT to spend resources enhancing a system that works for thousands of players but not you.  While there are more serious. real problems that affect everyone needing WGT's attention.
      There definitely many and much more priorities for WGT to concentrate on in which " valuable resources " would be better utilized . If a programmer or a tech had to do much more than add a few codes to enable 1 more notification . It wouldn't happen anyway . Just like dozens and hundreds of other suggestions that have been submitted over time that would improve all kinds of failed programs here in WGT. 
      We all know and I know that customer service is not part of what we get here . If it does not generate mega revenue . It will never be on any list . Even revenue producing programs are only introduced half assed . The CLASHES for example . They just opened the flood gates and all hell broke loose . That program is seriously flawed . They will never fix it or touch it . But it will remain as a top revenue producing event . 
      I only wish the multimedia messaging programs could be repaired and upgraded . Dream only of owners tools working properly . But they would cost mega bucks to repair . and so would all the other glitches and work a rounds we are so accustomed to . Not gonna happen . I'm not fooling myself . I have made other viable suggestions that i know will never even be considered . Like the colored icon for each member . To activate green if that member wanted to receive invites from other CC's . To stay red if that member does not want to receive invites from other CC's . Irregardless of whether that member belongs or does not belong to a CC . Completely their right and choice . Reasonable suggestion . i am sure very low cost and limited admin work to add to a members profile . But it will never happen . 
      Nothing much in the way of improving anything will be seen here . Look at all the clusters of inactive profiles and CC's that they could do something about . Also allowing CC owners to compile thousands and thousands of stagnant pending members lists . Between all that . no system can run properly without periodic cleaning and clearing . They don't do it . They don't stress to us that we should do it , we don't do it . it's a mess andyson .

      Speak for yourself andyson . We do  want WGT to mess with anything they feel like upgrading , improving , updating to this century state of the art . We don't want to just deal with it like you are suggesting . We will likely walk away and let this site disappear into oblivion if we are asked to just deal with too many more things andyson . 
      i know none of that will happen . I just write this stuff to give you something to do . 
      Your welcome BTW . 
    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY a classic Icon-quote andyson:
    It works well enough for thousands of us to enjoy multi-player games every day.
      Yes it barely works well enough for us to enjoy multiplayer rounds everyday . I am one who has 50 % of my rounds 3 and out in disconnects . I enjoy the complete rounds . I  also enjoy the 4 or 7 or 8 holes I play before disconnection  . But it's not right and I'm not going to say " leave well enough alone ". 
      Will it ever end CT ?

      It is unfortunate that you feel the need to discredit me and make me out to look like a liar and an exaggerator . I have already felt the effects this has had on people . I had one member defriend  me recently and message me explaining that it has come to their attention that i would not be one to be associated with . 
      I was a little taken aback for a minute . But not long . I have met quite a lot of your ignorant , cynical , pessimistic , untrusting and troubled types here . For every 10 of those . I have 100 friends that know me to be true and honest as the day is long . Would defend them and have their back the whole time you try and destroy them .

    I have to agree..that was nice of Henry. The fact he has amassed over 4000 "friends" means he doesn't believe in deleting...so you are probably safe.
    ps. I'm surprised there are 4000 active players on this site (or at least active enough to accept a friend request). WGT's assertion about "millions" is a bunch of marketing hooey ...I'm sure many of us (incl TopGolf?) are curious as to the number who regularly play.

    @Andy... Because I consider you a friend and value your sanity(?), I will discard with the post scripts. I may receive a letter from the Royal family, but for you I will do it. 
    The fact you could recognize my posts should not be a challenge at this point. I could do the same with yours. I'm actually surprised you swung at such a slow floater down the middle..usually you don't waste time on the obvious, or the frivolous.
    At any rate, I am pleased you took the time to post...odd topic to comment on, but your thoughts are, as always, both colorful and welcomed.Smile

Which is not going to be on your minds . At the same time as mine . We get that . And not sure but likely there are some brain cell issues .

    This thread reminds me of the Hatfields and McCoys...I've no idea who ultimately won that one either...only that it never seemed to end...lol
    Ah; the famous potato snack naming case, life wouldn't have been the same if the Hatfields had won.

    While that is true, it is meaningless.
    There are plenty of mothers that are total c*nts and should never have bred.
    I'm not suggesting Andy's was.
    Nor my own, she was a lovely person.

    There`s some mothers out there who have many lovers.....
    The child lies pretending to be asleep each night wondering who "new daddy" is and feeling oh so confused.
    Its a crying shame, and something that twists my insides into knotts.
    My mother wasn`t one of those.........but i was at times one of those new daddies!!
    Confession over.

    The truth is never "meaningless".  It's what a person does with it that determines its' value.

      What a group of astute individuals . NOT .
      Man am I out of shape . Reading this old thread exhausted me .If you don't know . This was a typical expectation from anything I posted . For quite sometime . I never let it bother me . But I agree . It was such a waste .
      This is just one of many threads that highlighted various concerns myself and others . Have had with the old invite system .
      There are actually other threads where I point out other controversies and problems . Directly related to the invite system .
      Arguments amongst some prominent CC's . Regarding whether or not someone had or had not invited at the proper time as previously agreed . Or the invitee had not responded . When they had previously agreed they would .
      And several other similar scenarios . That have lead to members quitting CC's . Taking their ball and going home .
      Then there was " The Invisible Invite Debacle " in 2015 . Which affected not just the general WGT public . But at the time there were a number of Challonge.com weekend tournaments going . That were completely disrupted . And eventually and quickly led to the final cancellation of said events . 
      The problem was that invites were being sent but not seen . With formats relying completely on the invite system . Left these events dead in the water .
      That glitch was eventually resolved . But not before it had discouraged the potential weekend tournament players enough to move on from those events .
      So the public and personal issues that were real . With the invite system did and do exist .
      Now PCEA is experiencing the frustration of the converting flash players . Who depend on a more accurate view of the actual players that are actually available for matches .
      This feature will be very important in the immediate success of this transition .
      I seriously hope WGT will take measures to refine and improve the invite feature .

    So it's the start of new day, the hour has struck your day play status is red, you re looking to play atl. shot with friends, great, you have 12 that are in green, available, you decide to send invites, first shows up, the next declines, the next no response, the third shows up, two minutes have passed ,still time, waiting for fourth spinning, invite another spinning, when that one shows up, the first invited get tired of waiting and quits, another shows but i see only three players, canceled.
    I am glad Haley Joel Osment is not on my friends list, he might see dead people.
    I actually did have a person say to me, if you do not have players ready to go, do not invite me.
    Is there a WGT crystal ball for sale in pro shop.

    Drives me crazy when a player is green but doesn't respond to invites. I give 3 separate chances and then remove them from friend list.
    I understand we sometimes forget to log off, but 3 times is a bit maddening for me.

    I hope I didn't so this. Sometimes I get reading the forums when I am green. Usually go red or grey when reading the forums. Sorry if I have done this.

      No need for apologies . The invite notification is very easy to miss .
    THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY
     
      The above link addresses just some of the invite frustrations that I encountered .But soon moves on to other completely off topic conversations .
      It is a classic thread and one that I have fond memories of . Please take it as lightly as I intended .

    If only the left hand side of the page could follow you as you scroll down.
    I'm sure i have been guilty of missing invites in the past because I couldn't see them.

    I usually play with just a little bit of sound to hear the swish of the ball but when I put myself green, I put all the sounds back and the invitations have a particular sound. In this way I do not miss one.

    Personally, I don't let it bother me.  If I send an invite to someone and they don't accept within a half-minute or so, I just shrug it off and move on to the next friend who's green.  Life's too short to get all bent out of shape over little things like that.

    I get your post completely.  Since we are now a member of the same club, I actually just posted a sharp post on that subject (which went into detail on differences between green-red-hidden) in the BD club forum.  And I said, there is no excuse to be green if one is not prepared to respond to a request to a game.
    If one is green and responds no, that's OK.  If green and no response, that is at best impolite.

    Just remember it may be WGT's problem, not the player, myself and 3 others from my CC play together, and the member who sets up the game  conference calls everyone, so here we are, all 4 of us on the phone, all green except Bob who's doing the inviting, and it takes nearly half an hour to get going, because the invites weren't coming thru for everyone.

    Which is it ? Above or below ? Lol .
    If one is green and responds no, that's OK.  If green and no response, that is at best impolite. 
      The feature itself . The ability to be invited . Is quite a bonus . This ability gives a player , playing in a solo stroke play " RR " the option of accepting an invite from whoever has sent the invite . Could be a friend . Could be a random invite . Depending on your status choices .While playing in a single player stroke play round . ( the only reason for the green status icon ) . And the only time one can be invited . If one is not playing . Then no one can expect them to see an invite much less accept one . How could they see it ?
      If the invited player is playing in a round . It is very likely that he will see the invite . He or she then has the option of responding . Or not . There is even the option of a quick reply message  . The player may or may not recognize the inviter . The player is not obligated to make any response . Polite if he does . Not impolite if he doesn't . May be in the middle of one of his or best rounds ever . Would therefore not want to interrupt this round at all . But the cool thing is that WGT has given us the option of quitting your personal round right then and there and accepting the invite . Very cool .
      Now . Whether or not the invited game is still there after accepting the invite is as uncertain as anything else here in WGT . And you can't get back the round you just quit . Lol of course . Oh well .
      On the other hand . If you are not playing in a single player stroke play " RR " round at the time . You should not be expected to change your status from green . It likely will never cross your mind . If you do change it . It may be a day or a week or a month before you remember to change it back . Like I said  it may never cross your mind .Especially if you are American . We just don't think like that . Not racial just truthful . We're just not nearly as anal .
      That being said . Staying green is beneficial in case the next single player round you are playing in . You get an invite that you may want to accept .
      But once you leave that game . Anyone inviting you will be disappointed at worse with no response . If you are not playing in a round . There is little chance at all that you would be in a position to see that tiny little green icon . If you were even on WGT at all . Just as likely to be at Walmart , or taking a crap , or boning your next door neighbor .
      The current invite system is only designed to alert a player , playing in a round , giving the player the choice to accept or not . Not for any other reason . One would not see the tiny green invite icon if they were not playing single player . If in a multi player round you would be shown as red " busy " . Not invitable .
      The notification(s) to alert WGTer's to a likely to occur soon or current invite . Could be GR8ly improved . Some kind of pop up's , linked to messaging or emails possibly . Notifications at the top and bottom of the page , also linked to messaging or email . Therefore generating a correspondence and communication ( messaging and emails are sent immediately ) giving each prospective inviter and invitee the chance to quickly set something up . or not . No love lost . Or a GR8 round set up .
