  1. They say that's the motto on the wall at HQ, but I'm thinking that it's really "If it ain't broke, then we haven't given it enough consideration - yet." Hahaha! This falls into the "Leave 'em laughing" category, I think. Enjoy vacation.
  2. YES!!!! Thank god! I have been struggling with this for a couple of hours. Thought it was just me. Don't need to reboot... just need to close and reopen your browser. But the POST may or may not have gone through. In my experience, geocache logs did, but trackable logs are not posting. Happens in both Firefox and Chrome.
  3. The old green reminded me of deep pine forests. This new reminds me of a cheap shower curtain.
  4. I noticed the washed-out color difference. Everything at Groundspeak seems to be becoming paler recently, it seems. While it is one more unnecessary change, it doesn't really bother me as long as they don't mess with the wording of the subject of the message and mess up my email rules again. That one is still p*ssing me off.
  5. OMG! Is this thread still alive? Thanks for the awesome post. WWII artifacts, huh? Amazing.
  6. In a normal discussion (remember, this is a discussion, not a posting of random opinions) smearing a large group of cache owners with a judgement such as "they are not responsible cache owners" generally requires some support. In particular, denigrating a group for not meeting someone's standards, in a normal discussion, would entail some demonstration that the person doing the criticism would meet the same standards they set for others. We are not talking about the validity of someone's experience. At least I am not. I am discussing the validity of someone's smearing of a wide group of cachers. OK, I will accept that that is your reality. But then, let me ask you this: Why is it you feel that group of cache owners need you to come to their defense? Do you feel that you are being put into that box with them? Are you defending others, or are you defending yourself? Personally, I do believe that we (some of us, perhaps even most of us) are indeed talking about the validity of someone's experience.
  7. I have asked you politely in the past to please refrain from personal attacks. In light of this quite personal attack, I ask again. That was not a personal attack. I'm sorry you see it that way because I was simply saying that people don't have to always prove to someone else why they feel the way they do. Not being able to feeling the need to prove it to someone else's satisfaction doesn't make their opinion wrong.
  8. I am not disparaging anyone. I am asking for an example to show how it should be done. Please provide an example of an example that you would actually accept. It seems to me that you are merely baiting, and that you wouldn't accept any example she or anyone else could provide. I would accept any example. None has been forthcoming. Perhaps because people do not feel the need to convince you of what the validity of their experience as much as you seem to need it.

  10. Is this one of those "pile on" things they talk about?
  11. So, you have logged NM logs on more than half of your finds? Or don't you log NMs when the log needs replacing? (trick question, I know) Not playing your game. Either maintain your caches or don't hide them. Your caches aren't my responsibility. Only my caches are my responsibility. And I don't care if that offends anyone. If one whines because I don't help maintain their caches, be sure to whine to someone that cares. No game. You said half. No, more than half. You know that I maintain my caches. I'm simply calling you out on your claim of "more than half". But I would agree with you if you said, "way too many".

  13. Brought a tear to my eye. Thanks! BTW, who was hiding out, and taking those pictures?
  14. As a former debater myself Ahhhh!! That explains a LOT, for me, at least. Despite the term "forum", this is NOT a formal debate. Nor is it even an informal debate. People have opinions and should be able to express them here without others telling them they are wrong. Formal debaters such as yourself seldom understand emotions and certainly hate to validate them, yet they are very real. You would do well to try to get in touch with your feelings one of these days. Seems your logical muscles are very well developed at the expense of your emotional ones.
  15. I can be quite pleasant. I tend not to be when people post misinformation as if it were revealed truth. Good, well-reasoned arguments also earn my respect and tend to result in more respectful posts from me. The arguments in this thread do not approach that threshold. Were you the guy that xkcd cartoon was written about?
  16. It should be obvious by the title of this thread, "Challenge Cache Survey" that we are talking about U.S. states vs. Canadian provinces. Try to keep up.
  17. *cough* dare I mention an idea that directly addresses that issue? Lest I get a slap on the back of my wrist? Wasn't that idea included indirectly in the survey?
  18. "Find a cache in every county? I live in Louisiana where we have Parrishes so why are you excluding me?" Cities = Towns = Villages. Counties = Parrishes. States = Provinces = Territories. The only difference is some legalese; they are functionally the same level of division for purposes of common sense. I live in my own little kingdom. How's that classified? You are a cat. No further explanation necessary
  19. I do, but it is very clear that you do not. Can't you come up with a more pleasant way of stating your opinions once in a while? Geeze!!
  20. To further increase integrity, don't compare stats. Why would comparing stats decrease one's integrity? I was wondering the same thing.
  21. Good for you! Thanks for your integrity.
  22. I think that it is safe for you to consider the term "State" to also refer to Canadian provinces and whatever geopolitical divisions other countries may have. I think it is very safe for you to think of it that way. Don't forget that while geocaching is global, it began in the U.S. and HQ is located in the U.S. and probably the folks working up the survey were born and raised in the U.S. I really think that you should save your indignation for what we call "maple syrup" here in the USA. That is a much more serious offense.
  23. Good job on the survey! You folks obviously put a lot of thought (and a lot of our feedback) into creating the survey questions. Thanks for doing that.
  24. I have used a camo'd piece of canvas that I found at a fabric store for quite a few caches. I attach it using a 3M spray adhesive. It makes excellent camo. Actually, I have two prints... one is a traditional dark green and brown woodland, and one is a light gray and tan digital pattern. The low sheen of the canvas really helps it blend.
