Finished tips on all 18 holes of Bellamy Park. Would there be a way to add a thumbs up/down to tips? It would be great to know when people find them useful or if they don't.

A really, really long time. A couple of years at least.

People can vote on them (which is how the "helpfulness" order is determined) but I decided not to show the actual votes. It'll just show the tips people think are better towards the top of the list.

Yeah, like I said, I thought at first I'd just transcribe what we have on the tee signs, which was written several years ago by someone else for a tournament program. They're necessarily somewhat brief. As I went along, I couldn't resist cutting some of the less "tippish" stuff and replacing it with what I thought would be more useful. I'll probably make another pass through the front nine now that I've re-done so much of the back nine.

Ah come on, you mean you don't want to see a TT or Trusted Tipper, or a diamond level tipper?

Great if your a waiter is that really necessary? Something tells me it would just become a popularity contest. There is an achievement for it:

Also, I made a new medal for Course Discoverer and used the old one for Informant.
I think it's good that the vote totals won't be shown. Just let the tips deemed helpful by the most members rise to the top. If you're only doing it for the recognition, that's your problem.

I would feel much more inclined to write reviews and leave tips for holes if we had single-sign-on. It'd just be nice to have the reviews and everything linked to the same profile as the forum.

Is this possible at all?

The extra 10 seconds is that much of a hindrance? Not really doable so it sounds like we won't be seeing many reviews from you
