  1. With your help, I finally was able to create the scavenger hunt I wanted for my book. See https://www.Waymarking.com/hunt/details.aspx?guid=b29a6b45-703e-48f2-b2bd-7157b1591080 Thanks so much for your attentive help. You are the Greatest!
  2. How do I limit categories? How make a "Category Master List?" I can't figure out how to make an "Ignore List" even though I upgraded to Premium Membership
  3. After a scavenger hunt has been created with waymarks, can one of the waymarks be deleted and replaced with a different waymark?
  4. Is there a way to limit waymarks of a scavenger hunt to the geographic boundaries of one county in the USA?
  5. If only the creation of a scavenger hunt had the simple option to select specific waymarks directly! Maybe Waymarking.com could have a variant of scavenger hunting called "Waymark Tour." Use all the same code that scavenger hunt uses, except let the creator of the "tour" select the specific waymarks needed for the tour. Not only would this option benefit me, but other book authors might see how real they can make their books become by including waymark tours for their readers to actually visit the places mentioned in the book. Self-guided tour creators would have a new tool available to them. Users of Waymarking.com would increase!
  6. Six of the waymarks that I need to include in the "waymark tour" are other people's waymarks (like the Idaho State Capitol). So I need a way to choose each of them for the tour, in addition to the waymarks I created.
  7. Hmmm...This looks like the situation when the scavenger hunter needs to substitute a real waymark for a wildcard in the hunt he is doing, NOT for the creator of the scavenger hunt.
  8. Hmmm... If "the only way to exclude other people's waymarks would be to visit them," that makes inclusion of certain waymarks, like the Idaho State Capitol Building, difficult. I couldn't visit every state capitol to exclude all of them, except Idaho's.
  9. I saw something about wild cards and choosing waymarks to replace them in the forum somewhere, but when I tried it, I couldn't find any option to choose the waymark I wanted to replace the wild card.
  10. I've created and deleted a couple of scavenger hunts, but only got the random waymark selections. When I chose to make the radius very small, I got many, but not all the waymarks I need for the "waymark tour" I hope to create.
  11. You hit on a key need, "a group of people wanting to find the same scavenger hunt."
  12. When I joined the Dietrich scavenger hunt you created, I only saw "Wildcards" instead of waymarks.
  13. I agree. The book is a young adult adventure in the volcanic desert of Lincoln County, Idaho. It takes place in 1989, long before the incident you mention. The lava-tube, cave-exploring, science project in the book involves students from that school back then. No, sadly there's no art on the school building. I saw that category, but couldn't make it work.
  14. The waymark is an existing school. I tried to find a category for it. "Education - Former Schools" was the closest, but the category managers denied it. I'd like to get it in a category.
  15. I'd like to organize specific waymarks into a tour for readers of a book. The book would encourage readers to join Waymarking.com and physically visit the tour's waymarks in any sequence. I tried to do it with scavenger hunt, but I don't get to choose the waymarks. Waymarking's scavenger hunts randomly select their waymarks by location within a specific geographic circle. My tour would encompass 19 specific, book-related waymarks, mostly within a 25 mile wide circle. The 19 waymarks are in multiple categories. One of them is an uncategorized waymark. I posted 13 of the 19 waymarks myself. How can I create such a tour within Waymarking.com?
