Yeoman's work!

Being relatively new around here, I thought I was getting a sense of the traffic - with some of the better-known or historic courses receiving more attention. But one of my recent reviews blew up. Mine was the first for Mt. Lebanon Camp Meeting, and this tiny little 9's review received almost as many upvotes as my review of Iron Hill. So hey: still plenty of surprises here at DGCR...

I have noticed this also. !st reviews of a new course are some of my favorite reviews to do and I typically go into more detail than if I'm reviewing a popular course with a lot of reviews already which I might focus on the highlights and add updated information.

I thought I might have a chance too till I saw how many reviews mndiscg has.

I know I'm not the only one, but i almost always upvote the first review of a course. If it happens to be a TR doing the review, it's almost certainly going to be more helpful to gage that course now over the first 100 reviews on udisc.

exception. a first review of course, by the course designer, doing their first review and dropping a 5.0/4.5 on it. regardless of length and content, the review is a complete throw-away. i simply dont buy anything that the review is describing. If i ever start downvoting again, these will be my first targets. they are more than unhelpful, they con jobs imo.

Yep. I have the only review high school niner, and it got more votes than you'd expect for a little out if the way course.

shameless plug to get myself more votes: https://www.dgcoursereview.com/profile.php?id=37315
my older reviews only have a few votes, in particular Big Cross DGC only has 1 & i was the first to review it

It appears that HyooMac will be joining the 1000 :thmbup: club today. Congrats Sir.

Congrats, HyooMac! Now instead of working, I'm waiting for his thumb count to update to see if he hits diamond as well.

Should be referred to as Cubic Zirconia...looks like a diamond at first glance, but not quite. :p
