I just saw that shifty06 became a trusted reviewer.

Is he the first strictly European reviewer to crack the 100 thumb threshold? Over time I’ve browsed around looking at a few worldwide courses and don’t recall any non North American reviewers with the TR symbol.

Anyways congrats to him. I hope to be able to play a couple of the European courses he’s reviewed someday.

It would be great if DGCR really started to get solid footing in Europe, and globally for that matter.

Would make it so much easier for globe-trotting players to have a single place to find courses, regardless where they travel to.

...not to mention the inconsistent format across various regionally popular sites.

Thanks wellsbranch250 for the appreciation. It was quite some work and took a lot of time to reach the 100 thumbs up. I feel honored to (maybe) be the first european guy to achieve the TR symbol.
I guess that DGCR is still not "accessible" to all the europeans over here as i see the language barrier as a problem. Reviewing courses in english gives me a hard time sometimes and my languange is pretty acceptable compared to some of my fellow men.
Nevertheless i think DGCR will get solid footing in europe someday as this website is one of the best disc golf related ones in my eyes. Keep up the good work!

Welcome to the Trusted Reviewer "club", Julian. I put you into the TR Stats spreadsheet with a little note commemorating your unique achievement. I'm sure I'm just like a lot of American disc golfers on here who dream of someday traveling across the Atlantic to play your courses!

Congrats to wericsson on making trusted reviewer status. Not sure how many other reviewers can say this, but he doesn't have one thumb down, Wow! It was a pleasure being able to throw with him yesterday in Nashville.

Blast. I share 0% course commonality with wellsbranch 250 and markmcc - and I wasn't sure that I had ever thumbed any of their reviews. Nice work btw gentleman. Still, it appears that my unique votes from yesterday were still not enough. :-(

In other news, enragedmullet gained silver yesterday. One of those journeymen who has successfully reviewed 55 courses that all seem to have between 2-4 thumbs each. Give him a look!

Congrats to enragedmullet as well. His reviews in the Mobile area has definitely helped me target courses there.

Shout out to Blake833 as well. He also just crossed the silver line. He's building quite the review territorial coverage in Louisiana.

Congratulations to Mullet and Blake.

What is completely unbelievable is how Wellsbranch250 is still NOT Diamond level with over 1200 Thumbs up!

Is there a way to check how many unique voters they have? They must be close. I will say seeing that has made me go and thumb up as many reviews as I can just to help out people who may one day go for diamond.

Not that I'm aware of. I'm sure I could message timg to find out, but have not done so.

Fun Fact: The Valkyrie Kid recently went over 6,000 thumbs. At this rate in 5 years he will be closing in on the 10,000 mark. At which point DGCR has a Y2K moment and the Universe ends.
