Ability to convert a Ghost account into a normal account and keep previous player data when a player uses the same email associated with their ghost account to sign up when downloading the WLS app if they want to transition from being a Ghost to a normal account.
Ghost players can not submit their own scores and are reliant on the manger to enter Ghost player results in the manger portal themselves
Ghost players can not join a league with a play code. Ghosts can only be found, add, and created in the manager portal during a live league.
