When Do You Get a Signature?

10 posts in this topic

Since mid-December, 2010, here are the rules for "when do I get a signature?"

In order to have a signature, you must:

  • Have made posts that span a full seven (7) days.
  • Have seven (7) published posts that clear or are validated in our anti-spam tool.

That's it. If you have 10 published posts and have made one post at least seven days after your first post, you should be able to create a signature. If you cannot, please send iacas a Private Message (PM).

You also get to write product reviews at the same time.

Thanks.

Edit: 2015-02-18 - Changed 10 posts to 7 posts.

I changed the 10 posts spanning seven days to 7 posts spanning 7 days.

We also have a new policy (that we're testing out): users cannot post a link (URL) in a post until after their third approved post. All posts will be held for moderation if they're newer than the fourth approved post.

This is to cut down on the amount of spam (which is already pretty light) that users have a chance to see. Yes, some legitimate posts from new users will get caught in the moderation queue, but only those posts with URLs in them and only the first three posts a new user makes fall under this rule. We are online frequently, too, so we don't imagine these false positives will be held in the moderation queue for very long.

This was only your 5th post. You just made your 8th recently, so it should be available to you now.

Hi! Welcome to the site. There are two requirements for getting a signature:

Quote:
In order to have a signature, you must:
  • Have made posts that span a full seven (7) days.
  • Have seven (7) published posts that clear or are validated in our anti-spam tool.

That's it. If you have 7 published posts and have made one post at least seven days after your first post, you should be able to create a signature. If you cannot, please send iacas a Private Message (PM).

You joined yesterday and have only 3 posts, so you haven't fulfilled either criterion. Go around and participate in a number of the forums, and I promise the option will appear automatically avter a week or your 7th post, whichever comes second. And feel free to message an admin if not, but it won't be an issue, promise.

      Ive recently gone from a belly to a 34" putter. Really liked the the belly putter but struggled with distance control. after practicing with the short putter i seem to have more control. Will be keeping the belly though for when i get a older or the back starts to protest!

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572
