  1. I'm guessing you might be able to get that answer if you were an advertiser looking to advertise on here and wanted to know who hit your demographics.
  2. Most recently support was added for a free toolbar, so you dont have to go to the site to log caches either. http://www.keenpeople.com/index.php?option...tid=44&Itemid=3
  3. These stats are also geocaching.com stats only. Many people on their "total finds" use more than one listing site in their total found.
  4. For quite a while I've seen users always giving kudos to other geocachers. I havent been able to find a place where these all 'reside" for posterity. KeenPeople.com has added a "milestone" where you can actually e-mail out your kudos to somone and have them listed on the "Geocaching Milestone". Please feel free to visit the "Geocaching Milestone" and give kudos to your friends. I recently added Greenbacks acomplishment of 4000 geocaches.
  5. It's interesting that so many people complain that the site is difficult to use. I gernally maintain a list of what caches I visit and their coordinates. While it is additional work it does offer an alterntive to the traditional method. It also offers the ability to have moving caches and to track yourself. I'd welcome ideas on how to improve it. With Groundspeak having such restrictive TOS on data it's nearly impossible to really add any integrated process. Microsoft style marketing at it's best!
  6. Officially we do not spam. Our email address get tons of spam like everyone else. We hate spam just as much as you do. Yes, if your email address is on a webpage you'll get spamed. KeenPeople.com does not spam. In fact we send out very few emails to anyone other than direct responses.
  7. You might also want to check out www.cacheleague.com. It offers the ability to compete against others simply by doing what you do every day, geocache.
  8. We felt that most players would rather have something tangible rather than just bragging rights. For a team of 10 it comes out to $15 a person. That's not much more than lunch and gas money for a day of geocaching.
  9. It's not $100 per person it's $150 per team. These costs cover the awards and prizes as well as fund future leagues, teams events, costs, etc.
  10. Staying on the topic of "Organized Geocaching" I wanted to let everyone know that teams are now forming for a competitive geocaching league. There are awards in different categories for teams and individuals. You can check it out at www.cacheleague.com.
  11. How do I add my Navicache finds to the geocaching.com stats banner? Any planned support for that?
  12. 15 moderators to discuss it in a private forum debating if they should close the topic.
  13. I found something similar to the following and decided to make a "Geocaching" specific one Q: How many forum posters does it take to hide a geocache? Answers: 1 to hide the geocache and to post that the geocache has been hidden. 14 to share similar experiences of geocaching and how the geocache could have been hidden differently 7 to caution about the dangers of hiding a geocache in such a location 27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about geocaching 41 to correct spelling/grammar flames 6 to argue over whether it's geocache or geocaching another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive 53 to ask if the geocache has indeed been hidden 27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different geocaches 12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the geocache controversy 4 to suggest that posters request they read Markwells FAQ 44 to ask what is a "FAQ" 2 to post reasons why the geocaching is the result of a Groundspeak conspiracy. 4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?" 43 to say "do a Google search on hiding geocaches" and finally 1 lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again
  14. Well, since guys like Moun10Bike were doing it 3yrs ago , the idea probably came from them, dontcha think? Yeah, stats banners have been around for years. Geez, what was I thinking.
  15. Wow, what a great idea? I wonder where they came up with such a thing? Geez I wish I came up with that idea!
  16. I thought of a good idea recently and placed in in a FAQ located here Use "Shrinky Dinks". Make small durable tags! Little varnish on them and they are now waterproof too!
  17. I found that site too. Lots of good information on there. I was also able to locate some other trivia questions as well. I'll have the first installment of my trivia questions up in a few hours. I really want to locate more of them though!
  18. I am putting together a Geocaching Trivia database where people can have some fun testing their geocacher knowledge. I've been searching around and have found "some" information out there regarding geocaching and it's history. My question is does anyone have a list of some website with good history/background? So far I've used geocaching.com and gpsinformation.net which are good areas. Obviously If you have a piece of trivia you would like to email me directly I'll take that too Thanks!
  19. Here is another article: http://www.keenpeople.com/index.php?option...tid=24&Itemid=3
  20. Hawk I can tell you from expereince the process does work. There are a few other ways as well. You can always post questions in the keenpeople.com forum as well.
  21. As promised here is a real simple conversion program. http://www.keenpeople.com/index.php?option...ry&filecatid=85 Enjoy, I will
  22. Success! I was able to find somone (Nigel) who could figure out the coordinate system on this and I have a conversion factor. I'm working now to put it into a simple conversion program to take a GPX and make the waypoints. The number OSTIA waypoint coordinate divided by 745654.03888 will give you the decimal degrees for the waypoint. I should have a GPX to Ostia wpb converter ready in a few hours.
  23. I have the same setup with an x3i. The .wpb file (stores waypoints) looks to be easy to convert to but the datum I am totally unfamiliar with. Anyone know what datum this might be? 31370223 -65839986 Looks like standard northing and easting coordinates but I cant seem to find something that fits. This should be the in N42 W88 range.
  24. Both units are still available. NO REASONABLE OFFER REFUSED! Please feel free to make an offer!
  25. Recently Garmin Refurbished eTrex Legend. Originally went on about 60 or so caches has only gone on perhaps 5 caches since it's return. Excellent Shape as it's been refurbished recently by Garmin. This is my backup unit so it doesnt have a ton of milage on it. I'm looking to sell this one in lieu of getting a new one to interface with my New PDA. Speaking of which, I have a Cassiopeia E-100 Full Color PDA that I'm also willing to part with. You can easily load caches into this and take it with you for on the trail cache maps and Decoding. I'm taking offers on the eTrex Legend and the E-100 PDA. I'm willing to let them both go as a match set for $210 or best offer. If you want to make offers on each one of them seperately feel free. Thanks folks!
