  1. Part of what I enjoyed about the complaints thread was reading the not-specifically-geocaching complaints - people just venting about a crummy day - I don't know if the compliments dept can be stretched quite that far so first - I compliment the site, the admin and the recent really fun cache that I found (I have few enough caches that if I describe it, it will spoil it for others - but it was FUN and I found it before Alpha did.

    I am sitting warm inside on a cold day - I'm about to make a cup of hot choc. and spend a five min break surfing the fora. Life is good. Who can I compliment on that?

  2. Wasn't sure of the best place to post this...and this seems particularly apropos.... I know I'm a relative and inexperienced newbie, but all opinions count for something.

    I like this sport

    I like this site

    I like the way the Groundspeak staff seem omnipresent and pop out of the air to answer questions and fix problems

    I hope that, big people that they are, they're not taking all the recent sort-of-derogatory posts personally in any way.

    I'm certain I'm not alone in this sentiment.

    Thanks Jeremy and co.

    maybe I'll treat myself to a membership for my birthday - to show some support.

  3. We try (in our huge experience of what, five caches now? not having a car limits our options a little) to find without the clue first - then if we feel we're stumped we decrypt by hand - actually, if we find the cache without the clue - which has been the majority of the time, I like to decrypt the clue afterwards anyway to see if it would have been helpful. (Glutton for punishment). I find by the time I've decrypted a few words using the chart - the rest becomes almost legible on its own.

  4. was probably the wrong word to use...

    Agreed - I meant it in the sense of approval by the masses (kinda like that radio channel that was so unanimously icon_wink.gif approved recently for geocaching communication) for common usage and recognition. (recognition in the sense of 'hey! I recognize that!')

    glad long dogs thinks the idea is not totally devoid of merit.

    Still holding out hope for Gustav (but apprciative of all the offerings)

  5. I suppose having two 'approved' ones is out of the question? I understand the need for a simple logo - it's just that the ones that Gustav has produced have so much versatility, and are so visually appealing - I know I'd really like Gustav's on a coin, or a hat - but I agree, I'd rather not have to draw it myself.

  6. - I was going to suggest that it would be simplest to focus on just the black and white version - since people will color it in to suit their wishes - but maybe it wouldn't hurt to have a consensus on preferred colors - to make it feel more of a 'team' patch - then people can change at will - but default colors (or black and white) are in place?

  7. IF we were to choose something like Gustav's original design - could there not be *ahem* 'derivative' designs as spin offs? For example - I like the early designs because they are so clean lined - but I can see the appeal of having a cute little thumbtack on it too - couldn't BOTH be available, once the original selection was made?

  8. I'd vote for any of the Gustav logos (1-4, color or not) with a very very close second for Team Bohica - I think they're beautiful, elegant, and I'd be proud to wear them....on a t-shirt, or find them...on a coin.

    is it time to start a poll for this yet?

    As an aside, I'm looking forward to reading whatever info Groundspeak provides (when it's ready) re their proposed die. I suspect it will be a truly equitable and classy solution.

    Hearty support. Was that more or less what you were expecting?

    Beta Lem.

    ps - sorry to have had a light hearted moment in the middle of what was clearly a pretty serious discussion - I was led astray by the tone of the earlier posts.

    I've liked all your previous sigs rather a lot better than this one BrDad. Somehow, this one makes me wince (and then some).
