  1. I have activated it, but I have not finished or published the page. All that automatically got filled in was the name. The email only gave vague instructions...no mention of a copy/paste thing. I am going to reach out to someone else who received the same one and ask them about it as well. None of the links bring me to what I need. See the picture above ^^ It has similar text....this is another one of the same type: https://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=8897597
  2. I was selected to receive one of the World of Warcraft Promotion trackables, but I'm unsure how to set it up properly. Others all seem to have a copy-paste description, but I can't seem to find where they've taken it from. I'm also unsure of if I should attach something to the tag or not. Does anyone else know how these work?
  3. That sounds interesting, however, I think that it would be difficult for me to pull off as a first cache.
  4. That's almost all that are in my area. 👍 I'm a bit worried that I won't be able to get accurate coordinates, but that's a bridge to cross later, after I have more stuff figured out. I hadn't thought of that, thank you!
  5. I don't think that they can. Thank you so much!
  6. That's a good point, I hadn't thought about that! Thank you!
  7. I hadn't thought of doing that- is that an actual search you can use a filter for on the website, or do you just look through? That sounds wonderful! There aren't any gadget caches near me, unfortunately Thank you so much!! I need to make some more, I just ran out.
  8. Thank you for that, that really helped me think about different locations. Both of those spots are beautiful, and those are also beautiful pictures!
  9. My area is mostly filled with easy nanos with the occasional larger, more interesting ammo can, and the occasional more creative nano, so I think that I'd like to add some larger ones/small ones that deviate from bisons in trees, lamp skirts, fake rocks, and guard rails. Do you ever do an FTF prize? I'm not entirely clear on which caches require more maintenance than others- I'm assuming caches with a lower D/T rating need more maintenance, both with log and container? I'd like to be known for either having really good spots for caches, or having creative hides, or having cool puzzle caches. There isn't really anyone filling any of these roles in my immediate area at the moment. I feel like I'd have a lot of fun doing really creative hides, so I think that I may go with that+good locations.
  10. Good idea! I have a couple of locations in mind, and will try to think of some more.
  11. After rereading, I haven't found anything that really answers my questions- I have a better understanding of the rules of hiding a cache, but not a better understanding of what direction it would be advisable for me to go in when hiding my first cache.
  12. Hello all! I've been geocaching for a while and would like to look into hiding a cache. Is there anything that I should or shouldn't do? Would it be better to go for something basic like a guardrail or lamp skirt one, or something out in the woods? Should I do a 'normal' container (ammo can, tupperware, etc) or something fancy like this or this container? Should I do a regular or something smaller? If I have a container with space, should I put swag in it? I've found a variety of caches, but should I wait until I've found more to hide one? Thank you so much for any help?
  13. As it turns out, it's not actually cheaper....just on crazy sale that runs out in like an hour. I think I'll go with the ring.
  14. While snooping around etsy I discovered this.....which, while cheaper, I also think might be a better idea because I'd be less likely to lose it? *indecisively exists*
  15. Waaay less permanent as well! I'm going to look around for some that are a bit cheaper than those screenshotted, I think.
  16. Had an idea and didn't want to make a whole new thread: The official earrings from the GC website aren't really my style, but I was thinking of getting a tag, taking the number, and putting it into custom earrings: (NOT a real TB code, just random numbers and letters that I put in as an example) It would also apply to something like this: Thoughts on this idea?
  17. Don't worry, I'm not going out and hiding caches tomorrow. I like to plan things about 223498 years ahead of time
  18. I was talking about hides. Why did you end up changing it?
  19. This is a related question, so I'm not going to start a new thread- for your first cache(s), and your caches in general, do you tend to do a higher or lower D/T rating?
  20. Am I allowed to go off topic on my own thread? Because I'm very confused about what EarthCaches are
  21. I've tried like 6 different translations as 'TNLSNSL' and I cannot for the life of me figure out what it means.
  22. Would it be a good idea to just make one long 'black_cat's giant thread of dumb hiding questions' instead of doing a bunch of these?
