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.
Monthly Motivation: August - Late Summer Run
Golf season is in it's peak here in KY... my boys on the Chasing Scratch podcast have committed to six weeks of hardcore golfing, and I'm going to do the same.
My goals over the next six weeks:
Play well in the Member Member over the weekend. Starts tomorrow. Only major issue is I'm bringing an unknown wedge into it and I tend to hit a lot of wedges on my home course... My 54 is in Idaho waiting to be shipped to me (dumb mistake on my part)... I have a 50 and 58, but relied on the 54 for most shots into greens... I'm not sure exactly what my plan is, but I have a $30 ping wedge in my bag as of right now. Should be interesting.
Get in more rounds of golf: The Chasing Scratch guys want to play 20 rounds and completely reset their handicaps... I'm not working, and hopefully the girls are going back to school in 3 weeks, so this might be doable for me...
Commit to a stretching routine: Really need to do this more often... I just need to make a habit and do it every morning when I get out of bed...
Recommit to healthy living: Need to get back into the gym and eating better...
I was going to do a 10 week thing on Reddit, but I think I'm just going to try to commit to getting healthier by my birthday (I turn 39 at end of September) with the goal of being in the best shape of my life by 40...
