  1. Interesting proposal David.  So if we drop "Urban" and simply keep "Legends and Superstitions", although we expand the category, I think this would add even mor confusion.  ie: I consider Maurice Richard a hockey legend by his own right, or the same with Wild Bill Hickok - now we could discuss legend vs hero!  Urban legends are what they are: fictional stories often rooted in local history and popular culture.

  2. I looked at this site a while back.  I'm just east of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.  I would certainly be game to team up with anybody.  Will research further to get best viewing dates.

    Home ccords: N 45° 16.134′ W 75° 16.524′



  3. Thanks to all once again for your input.  For what it is worth, here is a draft of the category proposal I had written up, as agreed by most in my group.  After this, I think I will put this matter to rest.


    Pop Silos


    This category will seek out and record artistically enhanced tower silos.


    Expanded Description:


    For this category, a silo will be recognized as a tower-like structure for storing bulk materials, mostly of agricultural use. Silos in this category must be permanent at an identifiable location.  Free hand graffiti will not be considered an acceptable art-form for this category.


    Instructions for Posting a Solitary Silos Waymark:

    Naming: In order of preference:

    "XXX - Anytown, State"

    "Road Name - Anytown, State."


    1.The description must describe the theme/design of the art -- it’s subject matter, media used, etc.


    2. Coordinates must be personally obtained by a physical visit to the location. The coordinates should be taken as close to the silo as possible! If the coordinates are from a viewing point, please indicate this in your long description and describe the viewing point and approximate distance from the silo.

    3. At least two photographs are required. One that clearly shows the entire length of the silo(s) and other photos can show signs, setting or specific details of the art design on the silo(s).

    Additional photos to show more detail or other views are encouraged.

    Since this is an VISUAL ART category, the quality of your photos is important. Waymarks with low quality photos that are inadequate in any way to display the art may be declined.


    Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:

    Please provide additional photos of the location. Add your own insights and observations about this location.



    • Are tours available?

    • Does the silo have a website?

    • Type of material:  steel, concrete or wood?

    • Surrounding property still in active use?

    Anyways, thank you for the feedback.  Merci à tous pour votre appui et votre rétroaction.  Je ne ressens pas un intérêt dans la communauté.


  4. Should I even bother writing up and sharing a category description?  I have members of my group voting 'nay'.  I feel that artistically enhanced silos (ie: Pop Silos) might have been inserted in the Murals category by default because there wasn't a specific category.  Just read through some previous forum discussions ... some very nasty stuff that goes way beyond comments to help the proposal.  Am I to expect this if I pursue?  I feel that I am a 'mature' Waymarker who understands both games - Geocaching and Waymarking.

    Vous êtes insultant,:mad: vous êtes débité car votre Catégorie n'est pas passé ????

    Mettez-la en sourdine, surtout que vous ne respectez pas la bien séance (de soumettre à la discussion la création d’une catégorie)
    Bien à vous

    Auf Wiedersehen,

    If you do not understand, translate yourself

    Bonjour.  Premièrement, je vous remercie de votre proposition d'une nouvelle catégorie. C'est ce genres d'initiatives qui feront croître le jeu du WM.
    Ceci dit, en lisant le fil des conversations, je m'apperçois que les commentaires devenaient de plus en plus personnels et vexatifs.  Mon dernier post était simplement une proposition de rédiger votre proposition et l'envoyer pour un vote à la communauté élargie.  Je ne crois pas que ceux qui ont participé au 'thread' vont se faire convaincre de changer d'opinion, ni la mienne.

    En ce qui porte à votre commentaire que je suis débité ... non, du tout. N'ayant pas reçu de nouvelles de GC, je suis toujours en attente, mais j'ai appris comment bien faire les choses la prochaine fois, si prochaine fois il y aura.

    First off all I am not blinded for absolutely create this catégorie, The proof is that I try to respect the "conveniences"(Not like the last 2 PeerReview). Create a group, submit the idea (which here meaculpa had already been created by *Team Krombaer*) in the forum
    Concerning "Redundant", I can agree with YOUR point of view if Redundant means "in excess" but if you mean "superfluous" than No, clarification please 
    But I also believe (my impression) that you do not understand that for 10 years in Europe "Roundabout Arts" has become an entire Artistic movement just like Abstract, Figuratif, Invander art ...and much more. 
    You can see all this information in all the links of my previous post, But i am sorry there not in English:o

    Hey.  Is that a reference to my last proposal (Not like the last 2 Peer Review)? (re: ethnic and language related flags, which I am still waiting for a reply).  Yes, I perhaps sent it at Peer Review prematuraly, but I will live with the results and perhaps rekindle later. This thread is getting nasty and off topic.  If the waymarkers don't have anything new to add, then buckle up and let the proposal run its course.

    I also agree that art inside a roundabout can be found in other categories. That said, thios is MY last comment on this proposal.
