I just hopped on today to see if I'd gotten any votes on my most recent reviews, and noticed a shiny new medal beside my name! I'm that much closer to Diamond. After taking a pretty long hiatus from really writing reviews or playing new courses, it's inspiring to get out there and add to the list of both. Also pretty stoked that it was La Mirada that pushed me over the edge to Gold. End of horn tooting. Back to work.

Pizza God has 50+ reviews written in the first 1/2 of this year and is at 978 thumbs up. I don't think anyone is closer to 1,000 right now; he should be the next Diamond I would think.

I was thinking he might have a unique voter issue since so many of his reviews are in Texas, but Texas is like the size of three Missouri's so I don't know if that is going to matter in his case.

You'd think a God of Pizza would be able to bribe his way to enough unique voters with offerings free slices/pies, so I don't I expect he'll have to wait too long for the necessary unique voters once he hits 1000.

I'm predominately Texas, and I am at 1,250 thumbs up but have yet to hit the uniques. We'll have to see.

Markmcc, also from Texas, was at 1200 ish before hitting 200 uniques and he had lots of top course reviews outside of Texas. considering that c a is not not there yet either, i would guess pizza god is short on uniques as well. heck, you (Tree Putt) may be next to hit diamond next. pretty sure you have 200 uniques.

With an Oklahoma connection, I appreciate that every time I look at the DGCR main page, he's reviewing a new Oklahoma course. But yes, he may have a unique voter issue. Unfortunately, Tulsa seems like the only good part of Oklahoma to get particularly good voting feedback. I'm sure there are some Texas areas that could do the same, but I don't think Texas or Oklahoma have quite the DGCR presence or even disc golf community that is present in some other areas.

I know, I wrote 10 reviews this year and it felt like a feat. I can't imagine hitting 50 in 6 months; I'm going to need my kids to grow up before I can do that. Even after the kids grow up, the damn grass won't stop growing. I have no idea how guys do that; I tip my cap to guys with that kind of dedication.

I have always wondered how he makes the time to bag so many because I have pm'd back and forth with him and I think he still works a full time job, unless he has changed to part time. He could make it to 1000 played by the end of next year. He and Lion just blow my mind, just because of the size of their states and the high percentage of them that they have played. Serious freaking addicts those two are.
