  1. I am very late in my reaction after the race has finished but I would like to thank Atwell Family for organising the race and the prizes. I will do my best to make a personal coin as soon as I have some money to spare.

    And than there is Shilo who updated the standings for a complete year! Thank you very much.

    Ofcourse I thank all the players who moved my coin: Windsocker, Zork V, barkingmadnz, Menai Scouts, Capreoli, Geonizer, joggelisklav71, 7kathi, geohäxe, JuergB, Die Berüchtigten, Sandymaus, silavon, Io Stregone, Silberschakal, Jack-Daniel, El-Grande and grimming.

    And last but not least, all competitors. Thank you all!

  2. It's not possible someone took over the coin. Not even when that someone would know the activation code.

    Once it is activated, you can't activate it again. As the owner, you get the message that you are welcome to make changes to the coins properties, but that it has been activated already.

    When you are not the owner, you simply get the message it has already been activated.

    So when the coin icon appears in the right column of the trackables it might be because he owns an other coin of this kind.

  3. I'm going to send out one on a journey soon; keeping my fingers crossed it lasts a while, and that many others will get to enjoy it as much as I do.

    Are you realy let one of those travel? Attach a big ball and chain plus a card with letters 2cm of hight so people can't miss the message it is not theirs to keep. I hope it will travel for a long time but I'm affraid...

  4. This has gone into a whole other discusion I might like to add my (nicked ;) ) idea. Why don't you send someone an e-mail with the necessary information/links?

    Actualy the guys at the Dutch geocaching foundation are working on this. When people register to the fora, they will get an e-mail with a pamflet containing the first needed information about geocaching, including trackables.

  5. I am wondering why the price for this coin has to be so high. When I think of a high production & shipping price of £5,- (€5,80/$8,00) for the coin, plus 1-2 GBP for charity, where is the rest of the money going to? It means that you would get 3 to 4 pounds per set-coin and 5 to 6 pounds per single coin.

    Would you be willing to reconsidder the price? You are saying you have been paying this price for coins regularly but I buy them normaly for 8-10 US dollars = 5-6,25 GB pound.

  6. It's a bit different from what ElliPrelli said.

    When you send your coin out in the big world, you set it to non collectible.

    If you are gonna keep your coin with you (in YOUR collection), you set it to collectible.

    When it's set to colletible the options 'grab' and 'retreive' are unabled so others can only discover your coin.

    That way it will not get mistakenly taken out of your hands/collection while logging it.
