Alright, so I stumbled across this in the "Up and Coming Good Reviewers" thread in a list of people who'd been shouted out in the first 11 or 12 pages:

-----------

Dave242 - 276 - 1905 thumbs (needs 1648 thumbs to go straight to diamond)

-----------

Is there a magical number up there that pushes you straight to diamond? I assume it isn't actually 3,553 as that math would suggest, maybe 3,500 or 3,550?

It's always 1000 with the unique votes requirement. This particular case falls under the following part of the formula though:

So doing the math with the numbers at that time, Dave would need that amount of votes to get to 45%. Normally the percentage part isn't really an issue for people on diamond track.

Dave is from the golden age when we were throwing around negative votes consequences be ****ed. We were living for today, never thinking a day would come and our votes would be seen publicly. That, and a lot of the perpetual negative voters 'left' the site. If Dave was turning out the same reviews today, he'd still get his fair share of negative votes, but he'd be in the 80 - 90% positive vote range.

Oh wow. I hadn't looked up his thumb ratio :thmbdown:

Yup. I haven't had a downvote since 2019.

We all chickened out (or manned up?) and stopped giving negative votes once they were made public. I also like to think I no longer get angry/upset when someone writes a review/gives a rating I disagree with.

on good behavior ...

We haven't upset the locals recently for writing a review suggesting that Harmon Hills isn't a Top-10 course either. ;)

or choose to not vote at all. I read one this morning that wasn't particularly helpful, but didn't merit a down vote either.

Maybe I take the concept of "helpful" too literally...I read some where I think "That's interesting, but not particularly helpful."

I've haven't been downvoted much, but I think it's funny that 4 out of 5 of my downvotes for reviews written since 2020 are from one person. Half of mine are also from the few reviews I did in 2010-2011, and were pretty earned on my part.

Dave changed his review style up at some point to include more than just his rating rubric. Those initial reviews included zero information about the course he was reviewing. If he was still churning out his "reviews" in the original style, I'm sure they'd get more down votes than up.

Don't get me wrong, I though he brought an interesting perspective, but it mostly came through in forum posts and not in reviews.
