Re: Inclusiveness

Here are my answers to things that I know and a couple of opinions for good measure. Firstly, this is exactly the sort of debate that the forum is so much better at than Facebook. I have posted this over there to invite FB users to read and contribute. Currently there are only 20% of British DGers u...

In short it doesn't work which is why I brought it up.

Ok, so that seems to have sorted itself out... But now back to Seamus answer; what do they do and why doesn't it work?

Re: Partners

How does it work in the US Seamus? Do the Disc Golf Companies (DGCs) become affiliated to the PDGA, like a trade association? Do the DGCs have to fulfil a certain level of qualities to become a PDGA recognised company that are then recommended as companies that are trusted to use? If so do the DGCs ...

Re: BDGA Tour Team Competition. Forum/FB experiment

One of the pieces of feedback that I have received as to why they don't like the forum is the anonymity of the posters. They would like to know who they are! That doesn't seem to be the case here apart from BOF (took me a while to work that one out back in the day)

Yep, thank you all for your comments, and as Bruce rightly says, this is a very hyperthetical discussion to see if there is any take up from the FB post. The post has had 102 views over there and as yet only regular forum users have posted. Will continue to monitor the cross over. Although what I am...

So this is a hyperthetical question that may or may not have merits. I have posted it here as it is the sort of conversation starter that gains traction on the forum, and is sited as the sort of conversation that gets lost on Facebook. The recent survey showed that a lot of respondents do not use th...
