  1. Signature items to me are an interesting swag item that reflects a fellow geocacher. What it is...whatever you want. I generally leave my signature geotoken (just homemade and printed on my computer then laminated) as an extra item with my trade. I would possibly trade my signature item for another signature item (of about equal value) in a cache, but I would never consider my sig. item to be a valid trade for something nicer. I try to always trade equal or trade up. I usually leave a sig. item in every cache I visit (unless it's too small), even when I don't take something. I also number mine, but there's not really a reason. I guess just so I can keep track of how many I've dropped in caches. I've also received e-mails from people telling me that they had/have my geotoken #whatever. It's kind of fun to hear that my item has moved, or become part of someone's personal collection. Here is a picture of my signature item. McWeb
  2. I sincerely hope this situation gets worked out. I really want to find and log this cache someday. I know that I can log it even if it's archived, but hopefully it will not remain archived. It's sad that this cache was archived. No judgements made, because there is probably another side to the story. I just wanted to post to show my support for the cache and for Team360 and all he has done to place it. McWeb
  3. Along with the usuall things people have said (jeep, new digital camera, new hiking boots) I would like to get my own geocoing made as a signature item. McWeb
  4. I think it's up to the person that is logging all the bugs at the event, going on 100+ finds a day, looking for only the hard to find caches, doesn't do locationless, or whatever else is the way that person plays the game. IMHO, I would rather get 20+ logs that my TB was at an event than no logs because it has gone missing. It wouldn't be hard to spot that the e-mails coming in were from a bunch of people grabbing them at the event. Once you figure that out, you can just delete subsequent "grabbed TB from so-and-so" e-mails without even opening them if it bothers you. Just my opinion on the matter. McWeb
  5. If you still have the number of the geocoin, you can grab it again and then place it in the proper cache by leaving a note and "dropping" it there. If you don't have that number then I'm not sure how to fix it. McWeb
  6. "Paws"itraction I changed it up. Tried two different approaches. You can choose the one you like better. McWeb
  7. Thanks, McWeb, it looks great! But could you replace the Geocaching logo with something else? Jeremy's requested we not put Geocaching logos in our avatars. Thanks! "Paws"itraction Yeah, what would you like in its place? I didn't realize we couldn't use it. I just thought we couldn't alter it. My bad. Give me some suggestions and I'll see what I can come up with. McWeb
  8. Yeah, the Air Force also took me away from home. I live in Texas now, in a city about 5 times the size of my hometown. I look at the cache pages for my hometown all the time. Geocaching has really taken off there, and despite it's small size, they have at least 5 times more caches within 50 miles then I do here. I wish I was there. Especially right now because we have no YJTBs within 2 hours drive from here, but they have 8 currenty in my hometown. McWeb
  9. Silver colored coins??? Do you mean that the color of the coin is silver, or that the coin is silver with colors on it? Just wondering because if there is a silver coin with colors on it then I want to order one. I haven't heard of that though, so you probably just meant it was silver in color. McWeb
  10. I went back to a cache that had one of my TBs in it. It hadn't moved for months, so I went to get it and move it myself. When I got there the bug was gone, but there was a log entry that said who had taken it. I was going to e-mail the person, but they have not validated their account, or logged on ever. They have been a member since April 2001, and picked this bug up in May 2004, so I assume they are one of the many cachers that do not log their finds online. I'm hoping that he/she will place it in another cache at least. McWeb
  11. How about in a cache close to me. McWeb
  12. "Paws"itraction Here's a start. I started having problems trying to do what I wanted with this image. Maybe someone can take over for me, or come up with something better. I guess it too late and I don't have the mental stamina to keep at it. The others put me to shame anyway. I just have fun trying to figure it out (usually). Sorry. McWeb
  13. I think they need to add a new Signal emoticon. It could be thoughtful Signal, or maybe she looks more confused. Yeah, confused/puzzled Signal. McWeb
  14. I think that if the owner of the TB would specifically like different people to move the TB then they can put that in their TB discription. I'm sure many may not realize this is something that may happen, and therefore don't mention it in their description. However, most people will most likely just be happy that their bug is moving and not just sitting in a cache for a days, weeks, months. I think as long as the person who has posession of the TB contacts the owner to okay his journey, and logs the bug to show activity, that this situation is perfectly acceptable. Just my 2 cents. McWeb
  15. Mustang Phreak & Phate Here's something I came up with. It was something quick, so feel free to use it or not. McWeb
  16. There are only 24 caches withing 50 miles of me, and so I knew it would be a while before I got any notifications. Most of my caches nowadays are done more than 50 miles away from my home; however they are planned trips on weekends. I wouldn't be able to just drop everything to drive to Dallas to find a YJTB. Regardless of that, I still wanted to know when the YJTBs were starting to be distributed in Texas, so I picked a Dallas zip code and receive notifications for that area too. That way, if I am going down there one weekend, I'll know if there are any new listings that I can check out. I think this is the best way for anyone who wants a larger radius to get notifications. The only problem is, the e-mail doesn't tell you what zip code the notification is for, so you have to open the cache page. This isn't much of a problem for me, because I know the names of all 24 caches within 50 miles, so I can figure it out without looking at the cache page. McWeb
  17. Sunshine Snuz Here's something that I started for you. I don't know if I'll have time to work on it anymore, at least for a few weeks, but if you like it maybe someone could continue working on it. Or you could use it as it. Hope you like it. McWeb Edit: edited colors of the sunflower
  18. This is my personal log bug. It is attached to my keys. I also let other people log a visit with it if they see me (and the bug). McWeb
  19. NLK Here are acouple of things I cam up with. I think they turned out pretty neat, and if you decide not to use them, I just might (I might anyway ). Anyway, the idea was to look a little bit like stained glass. I hope you like them. McWeb P.S. I can send you larger images if you want.
  20. I saw this on a page and thought it was great. I acturally tried to make a signal like this (with hand on chin), but couldn't do it. I'm not that graphically oriented. Anyway, I thought it was awesome, and fit this post perfectly.
  21. I'm sure AmishHacker will do much better than I did. He has a lot more talent, and more skill at this than I do. And I won't feel the least bit upset if you don't choose the one I did. I'm just trying to help a little, since I've been helped on this page also. Even if my designs aren't great, they might lead to something great. McWeb
  22. Sounds like a good idea. It's also working as a log bug for you. Just a pointer, the retrieved logs can be deleted (you know, all the ones with A in the log). That's what I do with my log bug and it make the page a little less cluttered and looks nicer. Just an idea. The bug is great. McWeb
  23. Just noticed a new feature on jeep.geocaching.com. I thought it was a good way to keep an eye on the YJTB movements and thought I'd share it with everyone. The link is TB movements, or you can go to the jeep.geocaching.com webpage and click on TB movements. McWeb
  24. Looks like Pig-pen from Charlie Brown. HaHaHa! It kind of does, huh? I'm not really good at this stuff, just wanted to help out.
