Default Shenanigans?

Saw that Tyler State Park got two (back-to back) 5-disc reviews today! Also noted that this put Tyler State Park into the top 10 reviewed courses catagory! Very Nice! I've never been there but top 10 is pretty good man!

Tyler State Park was in the top ten for a long, long, time and just recently got bumped out. It is definitely worthy of the five disc rating, even if those guys didn't write the best reviews. There are plenty of active members on this site(me included)that haven't even written a review on Tyler yet. When I eventually do though, it will be getting a five disc rating from me also.

Another DGCR detective doing good work rooting out shenanigans.

I agree with you 100%.

As far a reviews go, they were horrible. Told me nothing about the course or what to expect. Now someone has gone and given those reviews a thumbs up?!!??!!

This is just one of those issues that happen on public forums I guess. It's up to us to sort thru the garbage and use what we find helpful.

I agree those reviews sucked, but we still shouldn't be calling them out in the forums.

Those reviews boosted the course rating by, what, 0.01? And they're not terribly informative or descriptive but, after 84 prior reviews, is there that much more that needs to be added?

^^^That's how I feel about it. If a course has 20+ reviews, I better have a lot of something to add before I'd review it.
