Default Black Falls

How can this site pretend to have any credibility in rating courses, when it allows a review for one course (Cherry Hill) to be applied to another course (Black Falls) ? It's way beyond bogus.

You're questioning the credibility... of a website... that focuses on the reviews... of minimally moderated and un-credentialed users.

Have you tried PM'ing Tim, and actually having a dialogue about it? DGCR has always depended on it's userbase for accuracy. If something seems out of whack, it needs to be reported.

It's not like Tim can personally verify the accuracy of everything we dump on the course page... nor does he have a staff to do so. WE are the staff.

The good, bad, and ugly of it is that this is basically a DG wiki. It's up to the collective to self-regulate and fact check.

Yeah if a review was written under the wrong course and it's obvious then just report it to Tim. I'm sure he could fix it.

I reported my thoughts to Tim.

Tim,

A suspect review of Black falls came up in the forum today. I spent a good half hour reviewing all the data out there during my lunch break. This review in question of Black Falls, although perhaps looking legit, has substantial legitimacy issues. The owner provides a self-account that the reviewer has misrepresented the conditions or noted that they may have reviewed the wrong course. Another reviewer revised their review a few weeks later with a play date one day after the review in question, and they noted excellent conditions. That’s not possible.

There are major conflicts in available details. When presented an anomaly such as this, the review in question should be thrown out. The review is either malicious in an effect to bring the course rating down. Breaking a ground rule, “Do not give an artificially low/high rating to try to influence the overall rating. Please give an honest rating.” Or it’s reviewing the wrong course with details of their trip confused with another course. The reviewer did post 3 reviews the same day from the same region.

The review should be removed in my opinion.

Best regards,
Mark Blazer - wellsbranch250

Cherry Hill has been closed and baskets pulled since 2013. It was less than a half mile down the road from Black Falls.

I still shake my head in disbelief at that one real negative review of Black Falls. This was the same year someone stole our sign and vandalized the course.
