Ha! A Zager and Evans reference.....  Nicely done. Saw Todd Rundgren perform that tune live last year.

I can't believe I just read one of Jack's verbose posts in such detail I became aware that in his proposed ratings based scheme I wouldn't be able to play at all if my rating were, say, 848.....

I'm sure it's just a typo but it's fun to poke the guy sometimes.....     ::)

Ratings based would be fun provided everyone one had a valid rating.

I, Ken Hostetler, am getting married September 12.  Please forgive my interim absence from golfing activities for the last year or so, I've been busy "getting a life." :P

Ken, are you a club member? Just checking. Can't access spreadsheet at the moment. What's your marital partner's name?

Ken is a dues paid member. I was able to access the list and he's good to go. Congrats Ken!!

Yes!  Steve Ely is bringing brats to grill afterwards, so bring your discs, your $10 foldable, and your appetites.

K-Mont in all due respect I don't see anything in my public post saying anything about who's job it is to oversee posts.

Fair enough, I inferred that you implied that. By saying you felt posts are "a reflection upon the club" and that said posts were "smelly" to you, I inferred that you were implying some sort of control should be in place to police said posts. That duty would fall upon someone and that someone would be me or one of the other forum administrators.

But I do think the wheels are turning toward some sort of membership role based forum at some point. Time will tell. Sounds like an off-season project to me.

No matter where anyone is allowed to post it's a reflection upon the club. there's no indication whether said poster is a member and honestly it's still smelly to me no matter what.

I disagree. The club is comprised of individuals. It isn't our job to control every post down to the potentially perceived slight.

You guys crack me up!

As a staunch advocate of free speech as well as one of the primary moderators of the forum I think this has been a great airing of grievances.

I do on occasion PM someone and ask them to tone it down, especially if it appears to be hateful, personal or just blatantly offensive. All three of these areas is what it took to get one individual banned from the forum, many years ago I might add. No one else has ever even come close. Cade said it best, change the channel if you don't like the programming. These are individuals posting their personal responses. If someone from a parks department, TV station or perhaps a radio station like say... 96.5 The Buzz, got on here and started reading I'm sure they would be able to rationalize the simple fact that the posts they are seeing are from individuals and don't represent the club at large.We are well over 400 members strong these days and the rabble-rousers on this forum number in the five to ten range. Does it get out of hand? Depends on what that means to you.

But... I've seen some things lately that have approached blatant personal attacks. If that continues to happen, be warned, you will most likely receive a stern talking to via PM from somebody. Otherwise... lighten up fer cryin' out loud..... 

FYI - We still get several new registrations on the forum each week and the posts I see from those new users are without a doubt disc golf related 100% of the time. From lost discs or other personal items to what course should I play when I come to town, this is the place they come to. I suspect most of them are smart enough to separate the wheat from the chaff.... Cheers!!

We made a public request to everyone a long time ago asking them to at least include their full name in their tag line and it worked to some degree. New users still create screen names but a lot of people have their name listed now. Perhaps we could include something in the registration process that indicates that they won't be approved unless they include their actual name.
