  1. A year has passed and the category doesn't have the icon yet, how can i put the icon in the category?
  2. I prefer the first one with the background in red. Thank you for the icon.
  3. After a clear attack on my person , I wat to make it clear that I do not consider myself selfish (I give a lot of my time and money to help others.) and as a rule when I am attacked by haters on the internet this will be my last post here. I'm still thinking this is a nice and very valid idea for a category, and I hope it becomes a reality. Thank you to everyone who made constructive comments.
  4. We now have a written category Caritas Internationalis do you have any suggestion before sent it to review? Thank you.
  5. There is already a group created by *Team Kombaer* Roundabout Traffics - Kreisverkehre.
  6. I've seen several. In the area where I live, usually in the main square of the small villages there is always a stage used for cultural activities. We think that is a Good idea.
  7. We are not sure about this. We would then create two different categories one for significant women worldwide and another for significant men worldwide and join the waymarks placed in the categories "statues of historical figures" and "citizens memorials" and separate them by gender?
  8. As I mentioned in this topic, I discovered Waymarking through some Featured Waymarks in a Geocaching Magazine. The magazine was called Geomag and during some numbers it presented an article about a Featured Waymark, but it seems that they are Featured only in the magazine I did a seach and they are not on the site. So I would like to suggest if they could be added to the site Featured Waymarks. After some hard work I was able to list the magazines number,pages and which waymark was Featured. (The magazines did not have an edition in English, I hope you can translate it with google) Nº13 - Page 108-109 -- WMMVYQ - Insect Hotel - Jardins St Martin - Monaco-Ville, Monaco Nº14 - Page 118-119 -- WMMHXQ - Fuente de la Bola - A Coruña, Spain Nº15 - Page 128-131 -- WMKX35 - Monte Brasileiro Peace Pole. Nº16 - Page 36-37 -- WMF6AJ - Ghost Bike - Jason MacIntyre - Fort William, Scotland, UK Nº17 - Page 64-65 -- WMN980 - Caixa do Tempo - Matosinhos, Portugal Nº18 - Page 82-83 -- WMK295 - Tagus Birdwatching - Póvoa, Portugal Nº19 - Page 94-95 -- WMF763 - Greyfriars Bobby - Edinburgh, Scotland, UK Nº20 - Page 88 -- WMB5JK - Castelo de Guimarães - Guimarães Nº21 - Page 92-93 -- WMQBBB - Racoon - Lisbon, Portugal Nº23 - Page 60-61 -- WMPJV1 - Sloth Crossing - Limón, Costa Rica Nº24 - Page 68-69 -- WMAXQC - Ponte Maria Pia - Porto, Portugal The magazine doesn't exist anymore it ended in number 26
  9. The Uncategorized Waymarks and the Featured Waymarks they were question marks for me, and the information contained in the forums was very useful to begin to realize what they are. I discovered Waymarking through some Featured Waymarks in a Geocachig Magazine. The magazine was essentially about geocaching but it presented in each edition an article about a Featured Waymark. The magazine is not in english but I will try to find it, and post it here for you to see (maybe you can translate it with google).
  10. Interesting! This was a question I had and now I know more or less what they are and from what I realized they don't have any use, or am I wrong?
  11. I'm trying to create the category but it's not easy, Can anyone help me? Thank you.
  12. The category would accept all members of Caritas Internationalis .
  13. Has you mentioned your home area I took a look at your profile and found out that it is Switzerland so using the street view from google I was able to see several places of the caritas in Switzerland that would enter perfectly into the category
  14. Thank you all for your coments. I did some more research and it's possible to find Caritas locations all over the world
  15. I recently started to explore the categories to start shooting for Waymarking things that I normally would not do while traveling, and I found this type of categories: YMCA / YWCA, Ronald McDonald Houses, Salvation Army Locations, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Humane Societies and Rescues, Masonic Temples, Knights of Columbus Councils, Odd Fellow Lodges, Knights of Pythias, Elks Lodge, Fraternal Order of Eagles, Grange Halls, Moose Lodges and Centers, Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, Lions Clubs International, Soroptimist International, Kiwanis International, Rotary International. And I noticed that there is no category for Cáritas. My idea was to create a category that, like other ones I saw, was to include buildings and monuments related to Cáritas International. "Caritas Internationalis is a confederation of Catholic relief, development and social service organisations operating in over 200 countries and territories worldwide. Collectively and individually their claimed mission is to work to build a better world, especially for the poor and oppressed. The first Caritas organisation was established by Lorenz Werthmann on 9 November 1897 in Germany. Other national Caritas organisations were soon formed in Switzerland (1901) and the United States (Catholic Charities, 1910)." Wikipedia
  16. I see that this is not a good idea, thank you for the comments.
  17. A Michelin star has for a Chef more or less the same meaning that a Nobel prize has for a writer. Michelin stars are a rating system used by the Michelin Guide to grade restaurants on their quality. The guide was originally developed in 1900 to show French drivers where local amenities such as restaurants and mechanics were, the rating system was first introduced in 1926 as a single star, with the second and third stars introduced in 1933. According to the Guide, one star signifies "a very good restaurant", two stars are "excellent cooking that is worth a detour", and three stars mean "exceptional cuisine that is worth a special journey". The listing of starred restaurants is updated once a year. 17,000 is the number of restaurants that are listed on the Guide, but only a small percentage of that has the honor of having a Star(s). This is one of the goals category to to record to the history of the restaurants that already had the honor to have Stars (since this historical information is hard to find). To be accepted at the time of the creation of the waymark the restaurant must have a Star(s). I think that Waymarking is an excellent way to record the history of this locations, the waymark creators and then the visitors keep track of the site and its changes over time.
  18. You can Search by city and them Refine by the stars (see picture)
  19. Yes I know but with my salary I can not go there every week
  20. I have an idea for a category, I look for it and I didn't find so think it does not exist. I love tv shows about cooking (Masterchef and others similar) and I always wanted to eat at a Michelin star Restaurant but I'm not rich (i'm not poor too) so I can not eat there all the time as a solution I decided to go there with my wife for a special occasion and I have loved the experience (I hope to repeat it in the future). So I would like to waymark this special locations that deserve a Michelin Star. The idea is to mark for the future that the Restaurant has or already had a michelin star. I can give you an example, the Eleven it has one Star as you can see on his page, so the waymark name would be " Eleven (2017 - 1 Star) - Lisbon - Portugal" And then the waymark the visitors can tell if they eat there and if it continues to have Michelin Stars at the time of their visit. You can search the restaurants in the map and click on time in the pin to see if it has Stars: Map Is this possible?
