Here is this gem. There are still some of these around, but maybe it was worse when Chunk was floating around, lolol.

what makes me laugh are the people who've been playing dg for a year but have 2k posts and talk like experts. maybe they should spend more time playing dg and less time on dgcr. :lol:

I find that if I pick and choose what I read, both places are fine. I'm a longtime poster here, but lately I look at reddit more often, simply because it's more active during tournaments.

This thread is amazing.

I've actually described General here to people as "like reddit but bitter old guys instead of clueless kids" that this thread alone has a bit of a 'get off my lawn' vibe to it makes me chuckle.
I'm sure some of my issue has come from the propensity to post from my phone while at a bar at times so... yeah that's on me.

Anyway there is much more than a thin veneer of info here. This is absolutely the best place to get form critique and feedback. The knowledge for the rules discussion is amazing. Of course like anywhere you need to learn who to ignore, BUT there IS some of the best info you can find here.

I went to Reddit first when I first started (restarted the game) to try and learn how to throw. I didn't know a damn thing about how to throw but I 100% knew most of the people parroting advice had zero idea what they were talking about. I never went back, I can only imagine what it has turned into in the last 2 years.

I'm not a fan of everything here, but i'm a huge fan of a lot of this site and simply don't have to go to the places I don't want to be. I can take a break, I can lurk for a time, but I will come back for the info that is here.

Well I see no problem with that one. But I've been wrong before...

Seems well intentioned, I can't believe it's gone ape crap over that...

So why do you keep going back there? You seem to be embracing the suck.

And then keep dragging it here, encouraging DGCR users to engage? There are a few local facebook sites here, that I could participate in local social media nonsense. Of course, as an old internet curmudgeon, I would not likely fit in.

let's be honest - there's just not many places where you can get a forum for disc golf discussion. It's here and reddit, if you're not deep into using most social media (like myself - instagram is the only thing I still use and it's nearly unusable with all of the sponsored stuff forced into my feed)
