I throw found discs over water, and keep all my fresh **** dry.

For me, if there's ink call, if there isn't ink, and there isn't a lost and found option, then I just got a new disc.

Over the years I have lost a few discs and all of them were marked. Never got a call on a single one of them. So now I dont even mark them, why bother. I am begining to wonder if there is any etiquette at all.

Why would I want to keep a disc I found? It isn't a color or weight I like. I have discs of my own I don't even have a place in my bag for. I have a job. If I want something I buy it. This is also why I want my lost discs back. Who cares if ink makes it lose value? I don't sell my discs. Eventually they may work their way back into my bag.

Call the Ink. Google the PDGA #. Donate to a Lost & Found.

You've lost many discs to the disc gods, so Keep if Clean...

I won't hold it against you.

I'm a relative newb. I found a disc recently. It was a like-new Buzzz. I texted the number on it and we arranged a meeting to hand it off. Last minute, the disc's owner couldn't make it and texted me and told me to keep it.

I made the effort and the owner helped out a newb. I plan to pay it forward.

If there is ink, I always give a call or text. More often than not the person on the other end appreciates the call, but just tells me to keep the disc. If there is no ink, then I keep it or leave it depending on the disc and its condition.

I have lost three discs that had ink and never received a call, so there are folks out there who don't call (assuming they were found at all). Not a huge deal to me since the discs I use are cheap and easy to replace, but I personally just like to stick to the "golden rule" in these situations.
