I like how your quality post is offering quality solutions.

I am not sure what you mean here, or the point.

It's implied, is it not?


spe·cial
/ˈspeSHəl/
Learn to pronounce
adjective
better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual.


If there are many titles any one of them is not ' different from what is usual'

And therefore they are not special.

First, it rewards better play over time (seems pretty natural),
Second, (hopefully) it penalizes sandbagging.

Thoughts?
I'd be more on board with this if it was done by average rating over the last year, and not just the current rating.

The PDGA generally takes a "first come, first served" stance, treating all members equally and saying they have an equal opportunity to play. Except for the USDGC, which uses a qualifier system.

It seems to me that winning Worlds earns a title, and there's some merit to a system making sure it includes true contenders. (Worlds is both a championship and a convention, and the bulk of players aren't what you'd call contenders).

Tour events (NT, DGPT) should probably be able to make sure people who have made the commitment to be on tour, can play.

Otherwise, for most fast-filling events, you don't win a title; you're just the winner of that event. I'm not sure that's compelling enough to give certain members priority over other members.

I would like to see priority given to PDGA members according to PDGA #'s.

For example sign ups start for week 1 with #1 - #20000. Week 2 - #20001 - 40000 and so on. Way to many newbs are taking spots from people that have supported the sport for many years.

Sure, just like the average 25 year old.

Maybe for a Masters event this could work (but even then, I don't particularly like it). I see absolutely no reason to give lower numbers priority in any other capacity though. I don't deserve priority for, say, Pro Worlds over someone like Chris Dickerson or Joel Freeman or Austin Hannum (all in the 60000s) just because I joined the PDGA 13+ years before they did.

How about, you've paid a lot more in PDGA fees, over the years?

(No, I wouldn't particular support this either, but that would at least be a reason).
