The topic was SUPPOSE TO BE ~ "What if campground owners got together and started a site to rate us as campers" ~ which is NOT what this subject has turned into !
I think it's a GREAT IDEA ! After enough reviews, I would welcome the opportunity to walk into the registration office of a campground and ask for their "Considerate Camper" rate (10% discount ?) - which I could prove by the number of campground owners that left comments ABOUT ME and the campground's satisfaction with MY BEHAVIOR!
Everyone is saying "I'M not the problem - it's the other camper", but no one is *really* on topic!
Stay on topic, and consider how you'd feel if YOUR name (your real name, given to the campground when you registered - not your "site" or "screen" name), was listed on this site, and YOU were rated, as a camper;
John & Jane Doe
4 Reviews - 3 good, 1 bad
Campground: MD Family Campground, SomeTown, MD
We enjoyed having this family stay with us, and they were pleasant to all around them
Campground: VA Pretend Campground, AnyTown, VA
The children were very well behaved, they picked up after their dog, and gave this owner a appreciated suggestion so I can make my campground better for all!
Campground: NJ Shore Campground, TheShore, NJ
The kids helped my husband pick up trash for free use of paddle boats - great kids! Dog always behaved and quiet! Would welcome them back anytime!
Campground: PA Mountain Campground, Mountains, PA
Mother loud and always yelling at kids disturbed other campers.
I can picture a future where a CAMPGROUND's policy is to only allow "Considerate Campers" to stay there, and then, as a camper, I'd have a much better idea of what condition the bathrooms would be in, how noisy the place might be after 10pm, or if the reviews of the campground on this site were on target !
AGAIN - I THINK IT's A GREAT IDEA !!
I also think, with today's laws against deformation, and ever increasing law suits in the courts, it's sadly an idea that never can, or will, happen!
Shame too, I really would have enjoyed that discount for being a "Considerate Camper" !
