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

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.

Is the GEA down? merged (up?)

For the past many days I haven't been able to log onto 4GEA.com. I have tried two different browsers at work, three different browsers on my home PC, 2 different iPads at home, and two separate iPhones away from my home wireless access point. They all come up with the same webpage with the GEA's background saying Error...Error has occurred...try again...error log. It shows up everywhere. Are they down or should I be looking ffor some other solution. The page being shown on all of the devices seems to come from Beehive Error Handler, if that matters any.

    Seriously? Or is this a generic comment about the liveliness of the site?

    I was there from day 1. They were an off shoot of a misfit discussion board section on golfweb or something to this effect. Can't remember the exact name of the site. Anyway, GEA was super active for a bunch of years. The software is god awful bad though so I stopped going back (and apparently I'm not the only one).

    Won't be missed by me. The things which make this place great, such as effective moderation, have been completely missing there since Derrick lost interest.

    I think I heard about it from the old Golf Channel forum. In the beginning years I learned more about golf equipment than I ever could have imagined from the 4gea.

    I hope it comes back. It had some faults but overall doesn't every site? I will miss it as I don't really know how to navigate this one. I need practice? Maybe someone else will step up and saveit.

    Yep, it started out as golfweb. I have a shirt with golfweb logo on it. Way too big for me now but I just could not get rid of it when I gave away all my XL shirts.

    It's a 90's forum where a bunch of older guys talk some golf but a lot of other things besides golf. TV's, dishwashers, etc. A smaller place. No threat to golfwrx. Many 4gea'ers are members here.

    Might I suggest Ferguson’s favorite ! Joanns sewing circle forums. They have a nice golf towel crochet section. And socks. Don’t forget the riveting series “ how to darn those darn golf socks “. For the plus 4 wearers of course.

    Actually, we talk about what dishwashers are best for clowns only. Sure, you can make fun of us, but wait until you need a good dishwasher recommendation.
