PDGA DISCussion Board
Dear PDGA Members,
The number one complaint that I receive from members is in regards to the PDGA DISCussion Board. The overwhelming majority of members who have spoken with me on this subject have told me that they no longer post there anymore due mainly to the questionable conduct of a small vocal minority. Many say that it is absurd that the we allow posters to make disparaging remarks detrimental to the association on a PDGA funded resource and I could not agree with them more.
Last year, I asked the Board of Directors who had ultimate authority over the discussion board and I was told that it fell under my authority as executive director. As a result, I am here today to let all PDGA members know that we are taking our DISCussion Board back in 2009!
New DISCussion Board Rules were implemented and published today on the rules page as well as in the official PDGA announcements section of the website.
Additionally, a Discussion Board task force has been created to monitor the board, review and update new rules of conduct, and implement improvements as we prepare to launch a new discussion board sometime in February.
I encourage all PDGA members to review the rules and to use common courtesy when posting on the PDGA DISCussion board. I would also like to personally extend an invitation to members who have refrained from posting, to return to the Board to share your ideas and opinions with us. This is your discusssion board and it will only be as good as the people who post here.
Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation!
