I didn't realize it is frowned upon... and seems a little petty in the whole scheme of things... there is no malicious intent when signing an ace. That being said... I'll maybe not do it in the future.
    THIS is a first class first poast. Well done sir.

          Sounds like everyone could find a lot better issues to bitch about. I don't sign baskets or poles when I hit an ace, but if someone does in my presence I don't give them the disapproving finger shake either.

            Get an ace? Then "tag" your disc and/or the ace thread on this forum. Don't vandalize other people's property.

            And saying that there are bigger issues to worry about is the lamest excuse to avoid dealing with this issue.

              Absolutely a great post, rbescape. I myself used to be a vandal, back in the days when I first began playing in 1975. I too have seen the error of my ways.

              Our grafitti has stood the test of time and can be seen to this day.

              When we would finish playing a round at Ridgecrest Middle School (par 72 back then), we would find an old pencil stub and write the scores on the flagpole (which also happened to be the 9th and 18th hole).

              These scores are from 1975 - 1976. This photo was taken last year.

                Our club just had a meeting last month and decided this was NOT a priority to deal with on our courses. Currently, it is a waste of effort that could be put into much more productive work.

                There are major changes which will make this sport better and more accessible to our communities. Putting in the time and effort to make these changes on the course shows that you are willing to invest in the sport.

                Bitching about how other people are ruining your fun by putting their initials on a basket is petty. 'Be the change you want to see in the world.' I personally think that abundant litter, and public drunkenness will taint our sport more than a couple initials on the pin... You don't see me starting a thread to bitch. Pick your battles and help people find a better way.

                We are gonna disagree on this topic,that is part of life.
                The question is: what will you do about it?

                  I would also like to note how awesome that pic is.
                  It has been there for 35 years and nobody has had issue with it.
                  We are still growing and we can find reasonable solutions to these problems.
                  I hope we never get as stuffy as our ball counterparts though.

                    Don't ever let me catch you signing a basket is all I can say. You WILL get an ear full.

                        I am trying very hard to refrain from calling you a MORON.

                        My point was that 35 years ago when I was a careless teenager I did these things. I have since given up this type of behavior.
                        How do you know that nobody has had an issue with it?

                        I would think that nobody has noticed it. Or they are too lazy to clean it up. Also, we did it in pencil, not with a sharpie.

                            Funny thing is you sound just like a guy I know, and I am always proving him to think different, the right way... waste of effort? how hard is it to spread the word "do not tag baskets, tag your discs", hmm took me about 3 seconds to say it and 5 to type it?
                            I am not bishing cuz someone is ruining my fun, i'm bishing cuz I put the dang course in and just put the orange stickers on less than 2 weeks ago and someone already is writing on these brand new orange stickers that I had to work my butt off to fund raise to pay for!!! Once we let it happen, it will spiral out of control with all kinds of bs tags...
                            I put out 3 new garbage cans on the course today, 2 for trash and 1 for recycles on holes 8 and 15... I know I am a small minority of people who actually pick up trash as I play, but by setting an example and encouraging others to do the same, the trend will continue to spread, same as telling people about what to sign.
                            There are no "battles", just do everything as right as can be and spread the word on what is right and wrong and problems go down ALOT, instead of not telling them and letting the problem continue. As for aces, once we get our kiosk up, we will definitely have a place on there for Aces...

                                displayed on this one is amazing. Jshrack, you said your club had a meeting and decided to take no action. Thatís easy, not tagging is the easiest thing to do. Have you tried the most simple solution of asking your club members to stop tagging? It would take as long as it took you to read this.
                                I like how when an opinion falls in the majority within a "forum" it's seen as right and anyone else who holds another view is call "ignorant" or other less than pleasant names, what if at this club meeting the majority of club members really don't mind seeing ace tags on basket poles? Perhaps that course has serious graffitti problems that have nothing to do with aces on baskets (it's not like their approving gang tags on the course). Who are you to say that the opinion of that group MUST be wrong. Again, he worded it as it was simply not a high priority for their group, not that they were advising their members to go out and tag their aces. At a lot of courses, there are simply bigger fish to fry when it comes to course management and improvement.

                                Again I am not condoning basket tagging, I just like discussion spaces where people aren't put down as individuals for their views.
