    Looking at the photos of our visit of North Macedonia last year I found that I coincidentally took a photo of a modern, but artistic door handle of a watch shop:

    The door handle was made by the same artist (Vlado Kostov) as the human statue waiting and looking at his watch (see his signature at the top of the bigger circle). Unfortunately, I have no detailled photo of the handle and no photo of the entire building, but nevertheless I wanted to give an example of a modern artistic door handle and wanted to know, if modern door handles like this one are also accepted. The category description doesn't explicitly in- or exclude them.

    A very nice unique door handle. It would fit perfectly into our category - modern door handles are as welcome as historical one are.

    1. I don't recall seeing anything about it being publicly accessible. It's hard to visit something on private property.


    Another recent category states that the waymarked item must be publicly accessible. Some of the items waymarked are definitely not publicly accessible. The officer must rely on the waymark owner to define publicly accessible. 

    Someone of a side comment but I think it relates to this new category. 

    private property vs. public accessable: I do not see a real problem with this. All example pictures at the category description have been taken by me. All of them made from public ground - even if the building itself is on private property or not. I see no diffrence to most other categories. Other buildings are on private property as well.

    Are they translated editions of the Patricia Schultz books?

    No, they are independant books with 1000 places in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. And I'm sure there are other country editions in other contries.

    It's like the book '1,000 Places to See in the United States and Canada Before You Die'. But it is NOT written by Patricia Schultz.

    But do they qualify as well?

    If an officer denies a waymark due to an unwritten rule in the category description, how can the waymarker know, in advance, of what is expected?

    That's why it is important to give a clear hint to the submitter why the waymark was denied. Not for the waymark itself and not for an unwritten rule - it was denied because a waymark without a long descripttion of at least two sentences is too poor to be approved. And so it is a very good idea by Max and 99 to ask other waymarkers, officers, leaders and players if they think in the same direction. And I personally do.

  5. I have received an answer from the GMX Postmaster. They say they are aware of this issue. They say there's a problem with the subjects of mails fom Groundspeak.com/geocaching.com/Waymarking.com if they include special chars (especially if they contain German umlauts) and so they block all mails from this domains. Maybe this gives you a hint to fix this problem.


    Btw: two days ago a have received a bulk of 30 or more geocaching/Waymarking mails on my gmx account at the same time.

    I can assure you that we are doing our best to get in contact with them as well. We are hoping that some additional pressure from our customers will help them to understand the gravity of the issue. 

    No Problem! I'm sure you're doing your best. Thanks!

    We have been having some difficulties working with GMX recently, they have been blocking email from some of our mail servers. It would probably help if you could contact your provider and ask them to not block emails from our mail servers. If you want to be specific, you can tell them to whitelist these mail server addresses:,,,


    Here is the contact form for GMX: https://postmaster.gmx.net/de/contact






    I have tried to get in contact with the GMX Postmaster - we will see how their reaction is. I think this should have been done by Groundspeak instead. 

    It's a general Problem with GMX - I do not get any mails from Groundspeak (Waymarking, geocaching). And I think all the GMX users (in Germany) will have the same Problem. 

  8. And again problems with emails ...


    Today I do not receive any email from Waymarking.

    I have submitted several waymarks but no submission email was received.

    I have also not received any notification email within my categories for new waymarks.


    I have had problems with delayed emails (for hours and even days) in the last weeks. A lot of emails I have never received.

    And yes, I have checked my spam folder. They are not there!


    Anyone else with mail problems? Or is it only me?

    I don't know if it is important: I use a big German email provider gmx.net


    Could someone at Groundspeak please fix this! Thanks!!

  9. As the leader of several groups I tried to invate new members into a group.

    This lead to an error. Everytime I use the link 'Invite' at the group side, my session is destroyed (I am logged out) and I end up at the 'An error has occoured' side (https://www.Waymarking.com/error/error.aspx?aspxerrorpath=/groups/invite.aspx).


    Please fix this! I need the possibility to invite new members into my groups.


    BTW: The link to the forum at the 'error page' (https://www.Waymarking.com/error/error.aspx) leads to the old historic forum at http://portal.Groundspeak.com/forums/default.aspx?GroupID=6 wchich does not exist anymore.

    This should be fixed as well!
