  1. It is curious that we do not hear anything official from the authorities of gc.com ! ! !

    Isn't their answer above enough?

     

    And what IS the official UN name for the country in question (in your opinion)? I guess you ignored my earlier post because it was not what you wanted to hear! :ph34r:

     

    Well, after a research at www.un.org the name of the country in question is "Macedonia, The FYR of"

    I do not see this at the country list of gc.com but half of it...

  2.  

    If you do decide to punish the entire geocaching community over something your polititicians can't straighten out then you might want to rethink your place within this Global community we call geocaching. Maybe Terracache, Navicache or a new listing service GreeksOnlyCache.com would be a better place for you.

     

     

    We have thought of a local geocaching community in the past, but believe me, that would ruin gc.com in all the ways at the Greek territory...

     

    It is curious that we do not hear anything official from the authorities of gc.com ! ! !

  3. After all,

    me and my fellow local geocachers, as an act of protest may want to temporarily dissable all our own geocaches for some time (maybe for the whole Summer period?)

    Maybe by this way all the geocaching visitors of Greece will be informed for the problem that there is at the country list of gc.com

    What would you think if you went to a country that THE MAJORITY of the 375 or so caches would be unavailable for logs and Found?

  4.  

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Kingdom of Macedonia extended over the geographic area that is now FYROM (or whatever you want to call it).

     

    I think until the UN (and the parties involved) come to a final agreement (have been in a stalemate since 2002) one party or the other will be offended regardless of the name used.

     

    Actually, Alexander the Great united the divided city-nations of the territory of Greece to a great empire and took its borders until India...not a simple thing...

     

    Is it the Americans here and then the rest of the world or a community of people of all over the world that share the same passion for a hobby using multi billion american military technology?

    I am talking to that community, to see the difference that this site faces the problem.One day they erase Macedonia and after some days they bring it back...is this serious?

  5. If you dont live there then what is the problem?

     

    My friend, I think your nation has not suffered from any neighbours that are hungry for your precious land...

    My nation has enough memories of suffer from neighbours...

     

    And yes, Santorini, Mykonos and Paros are very far from the northern borders for you to worry.

    I will tell you when to worry...

  6.  

    That's the English name for that country. It's probably as simple as that. FYROM is a Politically Correct Name for that country that I truly doubt the locals call themselves.

     

    There is no end to differences between the English name for a county and what other langues may call that county and more important to me what they call themselves. Japan, Ireland, Norway, Germany, Switzerland to name a few.

     

    My friend, the problem begins while we have named the northern parts of Greece as Macedonia and this is since the time of Alexander the Great!!!

    So, when someone else uses this ancient name of country region of yours as his country name don't you feel offended?

  7. It can be a bit confusing...

     

    In the UN site, you can select "Macedonia" from the country list and get this result. They then refer to Macedonia as "The Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia"

     

    On another part of the site, they refer it as "Macedonia, The FYR". Maybe this is an intermediate solution that can please all.

     

    No, it does not please me, Alexander the Great was speaking ancient Greek and taught the whole of the then known world the Greek language and civilization, we have not any clues that he was Yugoslavian...Pure Greek was the hero !

    Visit Alexandria in Egypt and even the India and there are many reagions that know about Greece, not Yugoslavia...

    Stealing history is a really bad thing...

  9. I live in Athens, Greece and lately here in geocaching.com I see some odd and strange things.

    There is a country at the northern borders of Greece that the United Nations have given it the name F.Y.R.O.M. (Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia), this site intents to name it simply as Macedonia.

    Some fellow local geocachers felt offended (including me) and after compains the site changed the name to FYROM for some days...but now the people who control the site returned to the name that offends me when they simply give it to another country than mine.

    Is there any particular reason not to use the United Nations naming for this country?

     

    I wait for some reasonable and responsible answer from the ones who control the country list here in geocaching.

  11. I adopted ATHINA KIPOS virtual cache a couple years ago when the owners apparently dropped out of geocaching and the Olympics were about to return to Athens. I didn't want to see the cache neglected or, worse yet, archived with so many visitors about to arrive.

     

    That immediate crisis has now long since past, and I am ready and willing to pass the torch for this cache to a local geocacher who plans to stay in the game for at least a few more years. I am not an Athenian, and my visits to your lovely city are infrequent, so I think it would be best if a local geocacher maintained it.

     

    Please reply to this topic or send an email via my profile link if you are willing to take on this responsibility. If there are multiple volunteers, I'll pass it to the person who has the earliest "joined" date in their profile.

     

    Thanks.

     

    Hi !

     

    This is a virtual cache, what maintenance do you have to do?

    None is gonna lose any film canisters or listerine boxes...

  21. I've been out geocaching with some friends over Easter, and now I've been bitten by the bug! I'm looking for a cheap and cheerful GPS unit I can use to get going myself.

     

    I don't mind, how old the unit is, or what make, as long as it still works and you're willing to ship it to the United Kingdom.

     

    Anything out there in garagesaleland?

     

    Frauke

     

    Hello Frauke !

     

    I have the Garmin Foretrex 201 GPS which is small and the user can wear it at the wrist.

    You can have it for 100 euros or 67 UKP.

    It is in very good condition and I have all the accessories that came in the box.

    It was my first GPS unit but soon I left in on a drawer because I bought the more expensive Garmin 60CS.

    The Foretrex 201 has not a build in map and you can see all its details at the Garmin web page.

    Please contact me if you are interested.

     

    Regards,

    Ioannis Giannopoulos
