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.

Thanks.   As a new member, I was wondering.  Now I know.    Joel

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:

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.

    • If lessons from an instructor were not available, I might suggest a visit to the local library, or internect connection, and read up on the basics of the swing. Address position, grip, and a one piece take away to the top of the swing. I wouldn't worry about anything else, untill I had a working understanding of those three items.  Once I understood the above items, I would move on the more finer points of the golf swing, a little at the time.  Too many times I think golfers over load themselves with swing mechanics, with out fully understanding these mechanics, and how they relate to each other. Frustration sets in, and they don't improve, or worse yet they quit. 
    • Sometimes, it takes a guy a couple of years to find his game again after winning one or more majors. After a major win, I've heard they go on so many paid exhibitions and travel so much doing so that it wears them out, and can affect their swing. But Jordan's worked on his swing over the last year; and it could be he needs another set of eyes, or a consultant to assist his instructor.
    • You are not yet 40, so yes you can definitely get more distance. But, it will come down to a couple physical factors: flexibility, muscle control, muscle speed, and coordination.  It sounds like you have some coordination and control, you just have to learn how to properly let the club head go and know how to create ideal launch conditions.  A pro can certainly help.   You don't have to be fred couples or john daly to hit the ball long.  At 8 months, you most likely don't fully trust the swing yet.  Once, you start trusting yourself more, you'll be able to let it go more and get some distance.
    • 2017 D&D Invitational Pretty tight leaderboard with some big names, going out in threesomes due to weather threats.  Should make for some good watching. Simpson has been trending this year of late.  He's back on with his putting after several changes since the anchoring ban.  I'm rooting for him. I also like the D&D shops.  Ridiculously high dollar, but some good eats.
    • It's tough to answer without knowing your physical abilities, but my guess is that you will gain some distance since you've only been at it 8 months. In reading your post, you seem to be a student of the game. What I like is that you are not bothered by this right now - except as a gauge for improvement. In my opinion (I'm not very experienced) and as you stated, trying to keep up with others can be very detrimental. Be patient, and keep learning and developing your mechanics. Distance will come.
