Is Diamond TR obtainable anymore? It seems as though some people are qualified but have not received it. Or was it only obtainable to the first 50 people?

It's available. Biggest hurdle is unique voters.
As fewer people frequent DGCR, harder to pick up votes from a bunch of different people.

Itís definitely possible, the unique voters are the biggest thing to overcome as Bogey said. Most of the folks that have achieved Diamond have a combination of reviewing over a longer period of time and/or reviewing courses that cover a larger swath of land. If you look at a profile of a Diamond reviewer, chances are they started reviewing back in between 2008 and 2012, or have covered a larger area with their reviews, or likely have done both. The folks that have yet to reach Diamond but have large thumb/review counts are likely lacking a bit in one of these areas.

Reviewing popular or highly rated courses can be a big difference maker. More popular courses like Idlewild, Foundation Park, and Harmony Bends both provided a lot of thumbs for me, but also individually provided a solid number of unique voter additions. Iím sure a lot of other folks would say theyíve had similar experiences.

Overall, itís just a process that takes a lot of time. The jump from gold to Diamond is huge, which is why you see some folks with over a thousand thumbs but not enough uniques, especially folks like HyooMac and Shadrach3.
