I'm not sure I've seen even a single post to this effect from the "younger generation"
Hi, Carrie speaking: *younger gen* skier chiming in. Hello!
Not to mention the dude this whole thing was started over? Who she publicly blasted, and opened up this entire discussion about.
Also calling out other forum members on questionable icon earning in this thread.
Sorry, I have no problems asking questions.
I've directly asked multiple times for what these guidelines are, since shes so passionate about the subject. The strict rules of Dawson's ski descents. What everyone who wants to earn an icon follows to a T. It took two tries to even get a link beyond a small quote to her guidelines shes trying to "educate" us youngins about. 5? Pages in.
The "community" is very strict on these standards, so why so much contradiction? You clearly read my previous post, so there's a few examples with quotes from Dawson himself. If you're calling people out on rules, it shouldnt be so hard to spit out what they are when asked. But its been like pulling teeth getting much clarification. Was this a PSA? I thought it was.
Just like claiming a "summit" is far more nuanced than it seems; claiming a "ski descent" is the same way. They both have very strict, and vague definitions too. Of which, NOONE can agree, but some argue about.
If people are serious about eventually finishing the list, yeah the little nuances absolutely do count. They WILL be called out, that was made clear in the very beginning.
