Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that several users who are earning Infinite Points for the May competition are doing so in a less than ethical manor.
The purpose of our points incentive is to encourage quality content on our site. We want Infinite Courses to be the best source of disc golf course information and reviews. Plagiarism and spammy content is not acceptable and will not be rewarded.
To be specific:
- Course descriptions and rules information needs to be uniquely written in your own words. Users who simply copy and paste data from other course directories will be disqualified from the points competition. As disc golf courses are constantly evolving, it is preferred that courses and especially layouts, be added by disc golfers who play them regularly and know them best.
- Course reviews should only be done on courses you have actually played. These reviews should be your honest opinions and not just regurgitated text from other users. Do not copy a review from somewhere else and post it as your own.
- Only review discs you have actually thrown. Infinite Discs reviews must be uniquely written in your own words.
If you are someone who has engaged in any of these unacceptable practice, please correct any copy and paste course additions and spammy reviews before the end of the May. Once your content is compliant, you will be eligible for gift cards according to the number of points you have earned.
Beginning May 7th, if anyone is found to engage in plagiarism or spammy copy and paste practices, they will be immediately disqualified from the points competition.
