There's really nothing to be embarrassed about. You've earned it and it's something to be proud of! I still have to work out how to safely display mine. It's currently hidden so my family + pets can't touch it.

You're giving me reasons to get back to reviewing and climbing the hill to Diamond status!

FYI in addition to meeting the requirements, you have to contact TimG regarding the laser etched Diamond TR plaque, and chip in about $20-$25 or so to help cover the cost.

In all fairness to Tim:
I'm sure they cost considerably more than the plastic minis. When he had the very 1st one made for TVK over a decade ago, he ever dreamed the site would get as big as it did, or that so many people would make it to that level.

Counterpoint: my wife disagrees.

I never had my TR minis/diamond disc out; they're in storage with my extra disc stash. Once, I pulled them out and showed my wife. She looked at me and said, "God, you're a dork."

I replied, "Hey, there are people out there who actually hang these things on their walls!"

Lol. I was already married when this site appeared; if I even dared order the Diamond plague after "wasting" so much of my time on DGCR, my wife would throw it out.

It came in the mail today. It's gorgeous looking. 👍

I kinda forgot about it at first and was wondering what kind of stupidly stiff discs I ordered this time lol.

We should start a TR Diamond thread where TRs pose with their Diamond TR Plaque with gum wrapper foil in their teeth to make it look like "a grill."

It'd be legit.
