The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

The folks who are building the DGRUS Flymart were not, initially, going to have item categorization built in. After seeing the feedback we got in the past two weeks (Thanks!) they've decided that we will launch with some categorization. At first it will be just one level, with no subdirectories or subcategories.

I'm asking you folks to comment on and provide suggestions about what initial categorization might work best. Here is my first stab for your edification and dissection. (Actually, this is the third, edited list, already taking some suggestions into account.)

Putt & Aproach Discs
Mid-Range Discs
Driver Discs
150-gram Class Discs
Groups of Discs
Custom Dyed Discs
Used Discs

Collectibles
Fundraiser Discs
Media (books/mags/DVDs)
Clothing
Handicrafts, Art, Accessories

Bags
Targets

Minis & Mini-Disc Equipment

Other Disc Golf
Other (Pretty Much Anything, Within Reason)

Chuck, did we not capture that with the SuperClass category?

Okay, one last go-around at comments about categories. The current list is below. It will be alphabetical and not have sub-categories. Note that in addition to categories there will be tagging and search.

• Bags
• Clothing
• Discs - 150-gram Class
• Discs - Custom Dyed
• Discs - Collectibles
• Discs - Drivers
• Discs - Fundraiser
• Discs - Mid-Range
• Discs - Putt & Approach
• Discs - Sets, Bundles
• Discs - Super Class
• Discs - Used
• Handicrafts, Art, Accessories
• Media - Signs + Books, Magazines, DVDs, Games
• Minis & Mini-Disc Equipment
• Targets
• Other Disc Golf
• Other (Pretty Much Anything, Within Reason)

Okay, brand names are something that can change over time, though, so I am not sure at what level we'd want to start with them - perhaps they can come later, when we have subdirectories? Also, we don't want *too* many categories to start with, all at one level.

We've got brand names for discs, targets, bags, . . . what else? How many brand names would we have to have if we just limited them to discs, bags, and targets?

Discs:
Discraft
Innova
DGA
Millennium
Lightning
Quest
Latitude 64

Bags:
Revolution
Discraft
Innova
Fade Gear

Targets:
Discraft
DGA
Innova

Sorry that this list is so incomplete. I am at work and preparing for a meeting.

Brand names? Here's a few more-
discs: Gateway, Daredevil, 1080, Snap, Aoteara, Aerobie, Discwing, Ching, Whamo
bags: Gateway, DGA, Lightning Maybe put stools and carts in with bags?
baskets: Gateway, DiscKing, Spider, In-Step, homemade? - maybe break out by PDGA approved or not

There is always some cheap junk that is not serious equipment, but at least getting the PDGA approved discs and targets is important. The stuff between the extremes (like the In-Step baskets) can be added when it seems appropriate.
We're not going to be able to do brand names at first, unfortunately. However, those who put items up for sale can use the brand name as a "tag" - and I had not previously considered the potential importance of PDGA-approved discs and targets being something to distinguish. Hmm. I wish we had Wiki capability so that I could ask others to collaborate on a users guide or FAQ :(
Condition - for the used discs. If there is a way to standardize on a definition of how 'used' a used disc is. Photos don't always tell the full story - and there isn't always a photo available.

I haven't seen this mentioned yet, so maybe this isn't as big a deal as I'm thinking.
Rob, maybe you could start a thread on the issue of defining the condition of a used disc? It seems to me that if there isn't such a thing, we could start working on one informally.

Here is the thread asking for input to the question on how to define "condition" in used discs.

LMAO!!!!
Nope. Half of Vintage discs do not qualify for Super Class 9diameter too small) and half of Super Class discs do not qualify for Vintage (weight too high). Just add Vintage to the Super Class category and call it: Discs - Super Class + Vintage. That should cover it.

What I see happening here eventually is that most discs sold this way online come through here, not through Ebay. It will make it better for sellers, I just scanned Ebay and most items are not even bid on, let alone sold.
