I think it could be cool to pin something on the main forum page called like "the golfwrx bible" or something like that. I'm not sure how many people would read it as higherground states. But i also think it could be a fun way to show new members we are a good bunch here, and some things have been beaten to death and are best to stay away from or do a search for. It would also be cool to have like a golfwrx legend of all the terms we use and etc.
It also might be cool (and i'm just going out on a limb here) to have "champions" for certain various topics. Like have certain members volunteer to have their names down as experts in certain fields, so new members (or even old members) can mail them if they have questions about anything. Like a who's who in the zoo type thing.
Also, if you need help writing it i'd volunteer my services
I agree with you 98%.
The 2% is actually a question:
If someone PM's you a question, it doesn't appear on the board and neither does the answer. Isn't that a contradiction to an open board?
In my head i was thinking you would post the question on the forum and also send the guy a PM.
Because there is no guarantee that person will check the forum, but if you PM him he would get an email notification.
For example a guy like J.W is a great source of info on new Titleist products. You could start a thread called "looking for info on the new 913" but he might not check it for a few days. Of course there are many people here who can provide perspective in the end. But I just think it would be cool if some of the more senior members who are experts in certain fields volunteered for that type of list. It would give new members a chance to get to know some of the good guys too when they are relative newbies.
Even someone like me, a 4-5 year vet of the site, i often have weird questions about clubbuilding. Sometimes you post it and no one answers, and then when you bump it finally someone does. It would be nice if there was a list of a few clubbuilding gurus i could PM.
Of course the caveat would be that they would have to be regular users.
Not guys who frequent the place once a month
First bolded part:
It would have to be a: MUST
Second bolded part:
I have a specific question for you (the topic guru) but, you're in the process of burying your great-grandfather, so, you won't be on-line for a week.
Who am I to expect an answer from you within 5 minutes. I have to feel confident that you will answer eventually.
That is the reason behind: First Bolded Part.
People have lives outside of GolfWRX (so do you). It may not seem like it to you but, I'm on your side here.
