I understand why they are doing it but it's going to take forever to get to Ambassador status. I just hope I don't get discouraged in the mean time.
Most likely, if you like being here, it would be half way through Ambassadorship. If you post and start topics you like and have others' interested in it, you get to enjoy and converse with who are here in the site. Also, if you read an interesting topic and participate in it or post your opinions about it, everyone gets to know and enjoy your thoughts.
Other than that, there really isn't any reason to worry about the points. . . not unless anyone is in a hurry.
When I started here, I passed a few guys/gals in points ranking right away, not because I wanted to do that or were in a hurry-- although it might have look like so to many-- sorry, not the case here. I was just excited and thought I had a lot of things to say. (Or thought what I said were ok with all-- maybe not. lol) Then at times, things get busy around the house, work, and golf itself, and (woops) I noticed some have passed me by. But, oh well, big deal. I'm still friends with whom I made friends with-- so no loss there... If anything, I'm happy for anyone making it to Ambassador.
It really doesn't matter. For me, what matters is that I belong to a group of great folks I care to read about golf topics and not having to think about the stripes I have on. I care to learn about some of the best product like apparels, shoes. . . many things about golf along the way. I guess I like to wear good quality products, and I also know this group of people are good because it is what I see at a place where I play golf.
A few months ago, I first I thought I knew FootJoy, but now hindsight tells me I knew very little about it. It's these guys, the FJAs and the STAFF, ok, some of the naturally connected with FootJoy are the ones who really know it and they are the ones who can help you with it. Even so, there are so many new things coming out about each product or just the new product all together. It's an on going thing.
The title "Ambassador" is pretty big if you ask me. I'm almost having to step on the brakes not to be one because when I ask my self about it, I should confidently say, I'm worthy of it. But that's not the case. . . so much to know and learn.
Honestly, I just enjoy these group of folks being behind the scene. . . ok, maybe show up a little. . . ha ha ha. . . like a ghost?! Yeah, sort of. (lol)
Enjoy your stay!
