I've created a promotion and a new user group today, the "Established Member" usergroup. In addition to some added privileges (namely the ability to start threads in the Marketplace), you get the new badge and some extra perks.

To become an "Established Member" you must meet one simple criteria:

  1. 36 items of approved content.

That's it!

In addition to some added privileges (I can't remember offhand what they were, but they include things like uploading your own animated avatar, changing your user title, etc.), "Established Members" can start threads in the Marketplace.

So my title underneath the username will be "Established Member" instead of "League Member"?

No. You're already in the "Established Member" group. In fact, one of the other things you can do is to have a custom title there.

Established members have italic usernames.

I've removed the right to post a URL until you're an established member, too. This should help curtail some spammers.

What do you get rep points for?

For contributing useful information.

How many points are needed to get 1 point (Under Rep Power) and be listed as an Established Member?

Your current reputation level is 8. I believe the setting is 10 - which is how many you start with. You got a -2 for not "typing regularly" here:

Ok, but who's to say whats useful and not useful? Whats useful to me might not be useful to someone else.

If you post something someone finds useful, funny, or insightful, they may give you + rep points. If you post something rude or otherwise "bad," they may give you - reputation points. That's all there is to it.

End of discussion, please.

Hi iacas,

just a brief explanation on deductions.... is it possible to know how gave us negative points?

in case of negative points, is there someone (moderator or commission) who decide whether the negative points were given fairly or unfairly?

I got a negative deduction for a personal comment....and I was a bit curious on how this thing works....
thanks!

Look at your user control panel.

Nope. You all decide. Since reputation points affect reputation power, someone thought of as "bad" by users won't have much reputation power to affect others. "Good" people will have more power.

I got a negative deduction for a personal comment....and I was a bit curious on how this thing works....

No you didn't. You got dinged for something not personal.

Can you confirm that the above statement is correct? I started with 10 and had all 10 points taken away? I couldn't find any record of it in the control panel.

Thank you.

You have 10. You don't have 0. So no, you're wrong, and my statement about starting with 10 is correct.

    • I’m putting this here.... move it if needed. Fairly early in the season. Played maybe 7-8 full rounds so far. I’m close. I shot 41 on Tuesday on the front of a course I had not played since 2016. It’s a 128/70.8. A bad double blow up hole and 2 3 putt bogeys but not disappointed when with the 3 putts I still got by with 15 putts on the front. However I blew up and shot 45 on the back. Still for a course I’ve only played maybe 3 times it’s not awful. Then my college buddy comes down Wed. We play competitive to the point of defending home turf. I kicked the shit out of him last time he came down. He drilled me 2x at his course. I go out and make 2 putt pars at 1-2 and drill a 30 foot bender at 3 to get to -1 while he is respectable +3. Anyhow take double at 4 and 8. Bird 9 and end up +3 for the side 39. Home course I can shoot anywhere from 72-78 on a mid season round. I’m happy I’m under 40 with a pair of ugly dubs. But I for 2nd straight day just fall apart on the back. Ball striking gone. My putter is the only reason I break 90 after a solid front. I guess my question is there anyone else who can’t string 18 together? Am I over thinking it this early in season? Losing focus after a solid front?   
    • It probably falls under the same reason why so many 'old school' people still believe putt for dough, drive for show: Pure stubbornness. As @brocks has mentioned Jack got it all going with his moving the goal posts and apparently at that time he just had his way. And some of the guys here just can't let that 'Major wins' thing go despite it being shown quite clearly that 15>18. And I wouldn't doubt that despite Jack himself admitting the superior fields these days he'll hold on to that 18 as long as he can as the sole determining factor of greatness. 
    • Thank for the feedback guys! Yeah, from what I could find out they were the 1986 model. Not much else out there. Foam filled with brass inserts. I will probably pull the 2 iron (that I will never even attempt to hit, lol). Taking them out for a spin in the AM. Regripped 4-pw with Pure DTX in green, in honor of the 5th green jacket! Got to go to my 1st PGA tournament ever last Sunday...what a day that was!
    • That is your body talking to you. I had the same experience some 25 years ago. I would suggest you listen to it and stay off  the weights. I do not know how old you are but  at about 50 most people start to feel the effects of the tight muscles from the heavy lifting. If you are preparing the body for golf and life, you are far better off using exercises that are dynamic in nature and build strength by creating muscle integration instead of muscle isolation. You need to keep the muscles lengthened around the back not tightened. That will only cause you more problems down the line, but I would imagine you already know that. You could also have used inversion therapy to lengthen the muscles in the back and create more separation between the vertebrae . That might not be advisable anymore. Good Luck. .
