Holy Cow!! I can't believe you have 1583 thumbs up on your reviews but you don't have the 200 unique votes to be a DIAMOND Reviewer??? That is crazy! :confused:

^It means there are less active users thumbing reviews at any one time that we would like to think.

Since Wells has done such good work in such a short period of time, he has a smaller pool of potential thumbers than a reviewer who has been at it a long time. I'd like to think that given the number, quality, and varied geographic location of his reviews; that he should have been a slam dunk for diamond as soon as he hit 1000 thumbs. I know he has helped way more that 200 people make an informed choice on which courses they are playing. Only a small % take the time to thumb though.:(



Congrats to Sidewinder22!:thmbup: You do a ton for dg between the technique advice, reviews, Looney Tunes impersonations, course design and construction, and probably a whole lot of things that I'm not aware of. Thank you!

i can believe it (no offense, of course)

it takes time and Mark has only been at it 2 years. granted he put in a ton of work in 2 years but reviews have to sit there awhile to get unique votes. plus, he's a reviewer's reviewer. i think a good portion of his thumbs come from other TR's who recognize his quality work.

my hunch is few people actually read reviews that are as long as his average review. if you're a local, you probably scan it and then thumb based on the rating. and speaking of locals, while his reviews are spread over a large geographical area, it's mostly the South which is not really a hotbed of disc golf. and he's only reviewed a couple iconic courses which is where i think the real payload of unique voters reside.


if Mark took a tour to Flip, Idlewild, and/or the Twin Cities i think he'd go Diamond the next day

Cheers from London.

I have some big name course reviews coming later this month, starting with a course sidewinder helped me choose, with a review he posted a few ago. I appreciate all the thumbs, and would agree with dreadlocks analysis.

I usually only read the reviews of courses I'm planning on playing, have played, or in my area, so I fit into the above referenced analysis. There now is a growing list of reviewers who I'll read just because they write great reviews on courses I might never have the opportunity to play. I'll add wellbranch250 to that list.

Two of the most prolific reviewers over here within a month and I didn't get to play with either of them :( Although it was mighty close with Wellsbranch at Quarry Park, his cards sitting on my desk :) Missed out on Armiller last year as well! If any of you are coming over this way let me know, i'd love to meet up for a round!

Hey thanks for the congrats on making diamond. I just now noticed cuz I never get on the forums anymore. My review break might end soon my kids getting old enough to start taking trips with me. Cheers mates.
