  1. I'm impressed that you have the skills to make such a feature. But I say NOT NECESSARY. Shouldn't the forum be good enough? Facebook is where the social networking people can do their thing, not at geocaching.com.
  2. The Groundspeak Block Party GC38J9N. Last year's was GC2FYVM. It was great!
  3. I think that the social media buttons should be removed from most of the pages. If it's on the home page, it would be enough. Say I'm browsing for a cache, do I need to have that button-link on the same page? If I want it, I could go to the home page to click on it. We don't need it on every geocaching.com page.
  4. Who's planning to attend this year's Block Party?
  5. I think there should be a list of events or a event calender on your private page geocaching.com/my that you posted an Will Attend for. That way you can see what events you hope to go to.
  6. I have a mystery cache based on a book. Narnia - Uncle Andrew (aka Brandy!)To solve the puzzle you have to answer some questions, I also added a brief but detailed summary of the book. A while ago I heard they are making a movie for the book. So would it be a spoiler?
  7. Also interested in adopting. Do you have a list to be adopted?
  8. how do you know its their real name? It could be their real name, it could be not, but I don't see a need to put one's name, real or not, on the internet where everyone can see it, if it's not required. Well if it is, there are often other ways.
  9. Nice! Great work! Are you sure you want to give your full name on the blog, though?
  10. Yes you do, but I don't think the Etrex Venture supports downloading it. In other words, it won't work on your gps. You could try printing the information or downloading an app on your phone to store info. But you do have to be a premium member to download the file.
  11. What about the other 60 percent? As I said, Facebook isn't part of Groundspeak, so why should they work on something that doesn't pertain to them and is useless for the majority of the world's population?
  12. As a previous poster mentioned, these 2 choices might muggle the cache for stuff. Bear eats ANYTHING maybe even logbooks, so not him. He always eats bugs. Yuck. I'd really prefer someone good at finding caches.
  13. And here's a fourth one. It's a travel bug pic. Im sorry, and how is this related to related to the history of Geocaching? Sorry, I thought the mystery catagory was about any of the mentioned things in the post. I didn't catch that it was about the history of such.
  14. Many people don't use Facebook, so it would not be worth the time; and also after all, facebook is not part of geocaching.com! I don't think it's a good idea to spend a lot of time on something for a site not part of geocaching.com.
  15. I like to seek caches. CacheSeeker was taken, so I added "the". So that's why I picked that username.
  16. Doesn't matter, small or large, the purpose of an event is to bring people together that share a common interest. As to how to start the converstion, you don't always need to. Sometimes it's useful just to stand in the midst of others having a conversation like you are a part of it and when someone says something that you have an opinion on or have experience with, just interject a comment. At that point others will engage you in the conversation. All of this is of course what you would do in any social situation with a lot of people. Just be yourself and be friendly and if you want to be a part of something, butt in... Well, it seems that in large events there are planned activities to do, but the purpose of smaller ones is for meeting the caches in your area. Anyhow, thanks for the advice. I've been to three events, a CITO, Block Party, and a regular event. I want to meet and talk to cachers who found my caches, found caches that I found, and whose caches I found, but don't know how to exactly.
  17. There were new forums posted recently: See here. But they aren't viewable to basic members. Is it supposed to be that way?
  18. I assumed it was going to be connected to all the changes posted today on the index page: Community Q&A and Discussions Subforums http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showforum=130 Discussions with Groundspeak Subforums http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showforum=129 I don't see these on the main page, and the links don't work. Are these for premium members only, like Off topic?
  19. My goals are: Attend the Block Party Go to some local events and meet other cachers Find 250 caches in the year
