  1. No, it can't be yours, now that you said it, I guess.
  2. Thank you for the finding advice. Now I know they aren't too hard to find.
  3. not really, especially 'cause they are so small and hard to find. and it's hard to sign the log.
  4. Can you please fix geocaching.com being slow? I'm trying to print out some caches. I can't get on feed back now, so I'm asking here.
  5. Ok, so this virtual has a nice view, but this challenge doesn't? True, but I said usually.
  6. How, exactly, did you "unwrap" the earthcache you logged? Your rather brief log doesn't really mention anything that specific. From here, it looks like you parked within 500' of a rock formation, (a specific location), walked to it, and gathered answers to a few questions, (a specific task). Is that "unwrapping" in your book? I'm asking because, based on your earlier interpretation, a rock formation isn't a cache and shouldn't count toward your finds. I'm not suggesting you delete your log, but if you changed it to a note, at least it wouldn't show up as a found cache in your stats. That would be less hypocritical than refusing to participate in challenges which follow the same pattern. (I.e; Go to a specific spot, perform a specific task, post a log) It's like this, I unwrap the view/location which is the cache, and I answer the questions to verify that I was there. My log was brief cause I was on vacation, and I had quite a few caches to log. How is "unwrapping" the view any different between a challenge and any other non-physical cache? usually, there is no good view to "unwrap".

  8. I think the Lackeys are still making it. Be patient.
  9. So, you don't agree with the notion that going to a particular spot, as established by GPS coordinates, and performing some task should apply to your find count? That's fine, if you feel that way. I'm just curious why you didn't feel that way when you logged a find on an earthcache. Didn't that require that you go to a place, established by GPS coordinates and perform a particular task? Seems a bit contradictory... Here is my explanantion. The Earthcache is actually a "cache", a virtual with a pretty view which is considered the "cache". But the challenges, although fun, aren't really caches you can "unwrap" in one way or another. Just my thoughts
  10. I did the fremont challenge course at the block party today, but I'm not going to log them unless they don't count in my find number. But I did have a lot of fun.
  11. http://feedback.geocaching.com/forums/75775-geocaching-com/suggestions/2172725-remove-facebook-twitter-flickr-and-youtube-butt I made this idea on feedback. Any comments? If you think it's a good idea, please vote for it! Thanks!
  12. I'd suggest that it is entirely possible that those thumbs down votes are simply the result of people poking around, not realizing that they are doing. I myself voted yours down, but then voted it up, which removed my down vote. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to totally remove my vote. Has anybody tried the "Flag Challenge" link yet? Yep, not sure exactly who/what it does. Although the Offensive option should probably be changed to Not Appropriate Is that an option that you get when you click on the "Flag" link? I'm hesitant to click the link, in case there is no way to un-do it, just like I discovered about voting on the challenge. yep

Yes, I did, there were two challenges I thought inappropriate. So I flagged it. Soon afterward, it disappeared.
  14. No, this is how you change your username: http://www.geocaching.com/account/ChangeUserName.aspx But why do you want to change it to that?
  15. No I never. But I have dreamed about it once.
  16. What's it for? Just lamenting... But why?
