So I was bored and got to thinking about how most people are including a scale to indicate how worn the discs they're trading are. It also seems that the 1-10 scale is the most widely used, though most people seem to have a different idea as to what level of wear each number represents.
I thought it might be a good idea to have a standard scale for people to use when listing discs for trade. That way, we all know what a 7 means and what to expect. Granted, if the person posts pics of the discs, then this whole idea is moot; but not everyone posts pics of the discs in question.
I thought K Dog 19's scale was a good place to start (why reinvent the wheel, right?
10- Never thrown, no ink, brand new condition
9- Field tested or used for one or two rounds
8- Lightly used with very minimal wear
7- Used with some minor dings or scuffs but still in good shape
6- Typical used disc with the usual dings, scratches but still worthy
5- Kinda beat, significant wear, has lost a good bit of it's stability
4 - Beat up turnover disc with some evident war story wear
3 or under- Beat to Hades dog chew toy
If you think this is a good idea and want to work on refining this scale, feel free to post ideas on this thread. If you think I'm being too anal, am up past my bedtime, and should just forget about this whole thing, feel free to say that too.
