That means I probably need to write another 95 reviews to reach 1,000 helpful votes. Even if I do that, getting 250 unique votes would be a challenge. Add in the fact that I tend to review smaller, newer courses with few reviews, and this seems really unlikely. But I feel as if that is my niche and a good way to contribute to the site, so I'll just keep plugging away.

If you write 95 more reviews, you'll probably get 95 more thumbs up from this guy. :thmbup:

I definitely agree on the reviewing of smaller, lesser known courses aspect. That was my main reason for reviewing after my handful of (terrible) first few reviews of local courses. I actually love writing reviews of courses that have little to no reviews. I get no thumbs up, but if I can help even a single person find the first tee I feel like I accomplished something. The Diamond is cool. And man did I try to get it. But now that I did I feel like I'm going to resort back to what I feel I do best. Review the out of the way, lesser played courses. AND I just figured out how to add pictures not too long ago on my phone lol.

Reviewing lesser known courses has always seemed to me to have a higher degree of responsibility. Obviously, my numerical rating has more influence. But my review might be the only thing somebody reads, other than uDisc comments that largely limit themselves to one sentence including the word "awesome!"

“Awesome” is the ultimate review. It conveys so much, no other words are needed.

I decided the be the guinea pig on this course: https://www.dgcoursereview.com/revie...11512&mode=rev. It was terrible, but because of my review, no one has to have the same experience.

That was a really good review, though (and a perfect headline). It's hard to be critical without bashing, and I think you walked that line. You took time to explain (no big difference to play in either direction, no tee markings, safety issues, etc.).

The ones I have the most difficult with are the ones that are just "baskets in a field", especially located at a school. I REALLY want to praise and encourage the growth of disc golf in school recreation programs (disc golf gym class!!!), but some of these "layouts" are frustrating - and I have to keep myself from yelling "This isn't disc golf!"

Your Frontier Trail review did a good job.

I've been a guinea pig on 40 school courses. That I've reviewed at least. I had to have played at least that many that I didn't review too. Just wait until you start running out of new, nearby courses like me :D

I have the lowest thumbs per review of all diamond reviewers. I played lots of very rural courses throughout the upper midwest. Now I only get to play a handful of new courses per year, kids and jobs take up all the time!

Mndiscg truly took the route less traveled to earn his diamond, playing all sorts of out of the way courses that don't get talked up a lot.

Yeoman's work!

I get the feeling that I'll be competing with on on that metric once I finally get to diamond. :)
