  1. The numbers basically. They don't want a ratio of Finds/DNFs that is less than perfect, or at least "decent".


    I agree with you though that some of the more memorable hunts I've had have been DNFs. Annoying, but enjoyable in retrospect! :(


    Another good reason to post DNFs is that it gives other cachers the chance to decide whether to avoid it (in case it's not there) or to go for it (the glory of getting a cache others have failed to find).

  2. Stunning! Ill have to put that on my list of caches to visit.... however, I bet it looks better from the air than the ground :)


    This is the view from near the cache site.




    Typical I should miss the one photo in this thread I stood a chance of recognising.. That'll teach me to work rather than keep an eye on the forum. :)

  3. Who was the last British Prime Minister to be assassinated while in office?


    Spencer Percival?


    DING and he is in fact the ONLY British PM to have been assassinated.


    I knew he was the first but I thought I might have been bunking off school the day we did assassinated Prime Ministers. T be fair, I was bunking off most days! :D:P


    Right, I hate football and I'm no stamp collector but I liked this question from a recent quiz I did.


    Which former England international footballer once appeared on a national stamp of Gambia?

  4. Posts are closed for many reasons. One of them is when the Original Poster requests that it be closed. We generally honor that request and close the thread, at the discretion of the moderator and of Groundspeak. The most mundane example is when you're selling an item in the Garage Sale forum, and it has now been sold. In other examples, it may make more sense to let the conversation run its natural course.


    So, if I read this right, an OP can request a topic closed and a moderator can use their discretion as to whether it be closed or not.


    In my opinion that seems sensible.


    If a topic is getting a little out of hand and the OP requests closure then they can comply and if the discussion is civilised and still debating points the topic can be left open and the OP be given a reason for the decision. I realise that if things are out of hand there are other rules to close it but I can see cases where an OP might not want their topic "hijacked".


    This seems like a better idea than just making it either/or. As long as people respect a moderators decision then things should be fine. B) Whether people will respect a moderators decision is anothr matter completely. :D

  5. Not bothered posting to this before as it's going round the same old subjects of the moment but it's interesting to note, rather like children poking a dog, if it turns round and bites the kids somehow or other it's the dogs fault. It's perfectly obvious from this and other threads that the idea is to push things and you have. You have a reaction.


    Of course, we could just go back to talking about geocaching like evryone keeps saying is all they want to do?


    Right, I shall now don my flame proof suit to await the flaming I'm bound to receive for not being in the gang.
