After FINALLY upgrading to Premium, I went through and counted my Voters. Well, not just counted them, I listed them in the Excel file I keep for DG stuff. Good thing about Excel is that if I start keying in a name that is already listed, then it autofills the name, so I know its already in my list.
That took a little while, probably a couple of hours (broken up over a few sessions) to go through my nearly 200 reviews. But, I can never get a true count of my Uniques, users can go cast votes on my reviews at any time, and I never know which reviews are voted on after that initial count.

If I see a review posted on a course I have reviewed, I'll go to that course, find mine and check the voters, haven't found any new ones yet! :\

It sure would be nice to be able to see our number of Unique voters, not for gambling purposes, for entertainment only! :D Of course, that could be discouraging too. :popcorn:

That same course has multiple reviews more than a decade old that all have five or less votes. So, who has it harder getting votes?

Easier to get votes, yes. Easier to get Diamond, no. I think I have the fewest votes/review of the diamond reviewers but got a lot of different voters. There was definitely more overall site traffic back then. Now your review will sit on the front page for awhile and the usual suspects all vote but it's the same people over and over.

What ever happened to just writing reviews for the sake of writing reviews?

I like writing reviews to write reviews. I just like useless stats too.

Thanks. I'm sure I'm a long way from the unique votes to reach Diamond TR status, but 1,000 thumbs up feels good. Special thanks to wellsbranch250, who gave me really good advice a few years ago as I really started to get more active on the site and as a reviewer.

Thank you! It's kind of hard to believe! Thanks to all of you who have thumbed up one or more of my reviews along the way. And special thanks to the several of you who reached out via PM to chat about common courses played, recommend your local courses, or otherwise encourage me. :D

DFrah,

First, congratulations on getting 1000+ votes! You are averaging 10.7 Yes votes per review. That's outstanding. Even more importantly (to me) your HTN ratio is 1014:4 or 99.6% Yes votes. That is among the Best of the Best on DGCR! Well done, sir.

I've been a follower of your reviews for a long time, so keep up the good work.

I'm DGCR #74, but I noticed something I've never seen on DGCR until today. You are the first person I've ever seen with 1000 Yes votes that is still a Silver level TR. This is by no means a knock on you because it obviously means that you lack the unique votes. Where are those Unique voters?? Your excellent reviews are well worth checking out.

Knobby (if i recall correctly) was also at silver when he reached a 1000.
