    Will registration be required for reviews too?

    The biggest problem I've seen on BC in the past several months has been all of those dorks who post questions, irrelevant commentary, discussions, nonsensical comments, ads, etc... in the review section rather than (a) in the forums; or (b) nowhere at all on any portion of BC. Will registration be required to post reviews? Will you be able to moderate that section in the same fashion as the message posts, with a click of the link on the bottom to alert a moderator of a problem review?

    Re: Will registration be required for reviews too?

    yes and yes!

    registration is required. any inappropriate questions etc can be deleted or moved.

    i am hoping these two measures will up the quality of the reviews.

    that's what i am deep down in my heart. ;)

    but then i had to succomb to reality that i need to live and eat, and i suck so much i cannot be a coach, so i went off and found myself a job.

    what it really boils down to though, is that my job pays for rackets, birdies, shoes, and it also pay for my home so i have a place to store my badminton rackets, and most important of all, it pays for my court fees and transportation fee to the gym.

    so boys and girls, be good, study hard and get a good job, then you can play badminton till you die.

    LOL! For someone who calls himself eternally young, you sounded like an Old Wise man!

    But good piece of advise. I stopped from trying to turn pro only because of this. I need more money that what i can make in the circuit and where do i see myself at 40? I guess that deterred me from taking up Baddy as life.

    Prob i might be happy at the end of teh day and not worry abt the missed chances and Glory.

    missed chances and glory.

    Yogi, you talked about missed chances and glory. i wonder if the road to such is too bumpy and steep to be worthwhile.

    as someone who plays badminton regularly, i enjoy my badminton games in the gym (well, ok, most of the time.. :) however, i am not sure how i'd feel if i had to train like a pro. image if you have to play 5+ hours everyday, for 5-6 days in a week. i will probably be less enthusiastic about it as i am now.

    i guess what i am trying to say is, it is fun to play recreationally, but as a job, it may be less fun.

    incidentally, i played 6 hours of badminton yesterday. my left knee was about to come off! it was thoroughly enjoyable though.

    kwun, playing anymore than that it will be like work. I wouldn't like to be a badminton pro neither as pain and injuries are gonna happen and i'm very pain intolerant. :(
