  1. We no longer reach critical mass. There are not enough reviewers to maintain every category. God forbid, if wayfrog was to have a frogger accident, what do we do then? I have a question for wayfrog and waymarkers, I have many waymarks to post in a tiny dormant category. Even if by magic I became a reviewer in that category, is it still better to burden wayfrog with reviews rather than review my own creations?
  2. Thank you for sharing that news release. I think it's terrible news but I am not surprised. I don't know why fancy excuses have to be invented for Groundspeak removing the benchmarking game. There's only one true explanation. The coding is ancient.
  3. While away from the forums, I still did plenty of posts, visits and reviews. Are these Waymarking forums as active as ever?
  4. https://www.Waymarking.com/waymarks/wm8CNR_N_37_33_57_E_126_58_40_Seoul_South_Korea
  5. I was thinking of all the countries of Asia and Africa (excluding South Africa). I would let the countries of Europe and Oceania which do not yet have a benchmark Waymarking category create their own national category.
  6. What a great account! That must have been hundreds of photos. I must try a banana caramel shake, even if I can't get back to Peter's. Thank you, you two, for sharing your adventure. I admit it: I've missed this stuff.
  7. In 2016, with our creation of the Latin America Benchmarks waymark category, benchmarks for all of the western hemisphere had a place in Waymarking. By now, most of Europe’s benchmarks can be waymarked. Australia and New Zealand are covered. Was there ever a discussion about a category for benchmarks in the other countries, perhaps all of the other countries?
  8. Thank you so much for continuing to do the jobs that others should be doing.
  9. I have been away... from the forums. Is this <snip> that I would know or is this a new <snip>?
  10. I agree completely with your comparison to basketball courts and playgrounds, the two categories that I can actually waymark during a pandemic with no travel. Soon I can add football fields to my travel-free collecting.
  11. Even if we excluded the playing grounds of elementary schools, would there not be football/soccer pitches and/or running tracks every few blocks of urban space?
  12. Over the years, the rest of us have been carefully following the ups and the downs of that bright idea. At the time...
  13. Bad guys always win, no? It might be time to find myself a nice quiet corner of the Waymarking sphere, if I continue at all. One can only take so much negative stuff. Having just lost my geoSchnauzer who was born the same week that I started to play outdoors with a GPSr, my attitude needs some adjusting.
  14. I have had enough. I realize that wayfrog is busy. Even so, if Individual 1 is not gone for good by the end of April, I will be gone for good from this forum. Because the new improved forum no longer works on my device of choice, leaving for good will be simple.
  15. Peer review is a nasty but necessary experience. At the least, you now know what to expect next time. It is difficult to not be emotional after the thrashing one takes in peer review. Look at it this way, you have now had the full Waymarking experience...almost.
  16. Even if management was brave enough to ban the individual from category officership, would that stop the individual from destroying this game?
  17. If I am against the existence of non-banking institutions like payday loans companies, would I be against this category?
  18. I failed to stay on track but I did steal an origin story. "This expression originated in the early 1700s. The idea behind is clear, alluding to a vehicle (at the time, a horse drawn carriage) whose wheels were stuck in the mud. Someone who is a stick in the mud doesn't want to try new things."
  19. My upvote was for the hopeful politics. As for the category, I'm not hopeful.
