:shocked: Why Signal The Frog?! :shocked:

Recommended Posts

Now I mean no disrespect to Signal the Frog, and I don't mean step on any toes (or webbed feet), But why a Frog?

 

I mean is a frog a great tracker?

 

Is it the frogs have a great natural ability to sense direction?

 

Or are they sure footed and steady going?

 

When I think of a frog, I think of slimy, wet, slick, jumpy, and quick. Now accept for maybe quick, as a new geocacher, the other description don't describe me or my other geocaching friends.

 

Now I'm not suggesting we replace good old signal, but why not give him a partner or sidekick?

 

Like maybe a wolf, a bloodhound, an eagle, an owl, or even a big radar eared bat?

 

Something that represents more of what we do and how we do it.

 

I realize this will probably never "fly", but I thought it might be cool to see some proposed ideas from some others out there. So let's see and hear some other ideas.

 

Respond to this topic with your art ideas for a Signal side-kick...

 

(Cheer up Signal, you may gain a new friend.)

Wanna bet? Try picking a few less cityfied caches and you will be posting suggestions about local diners that allow mud-covered cachers.

I think I dated the person you are confusing Signal with.

Signal has an antenna on his head.
(emphasis mine)

 

And the whole time, I thought Signal was a female! :D

Signal is a girl.

It's well documented.

Besides, when's the last time

you saw a boy frog posed like this:

I'm all for Signal. I would also enjoy a supporting cast. Maybe a group of geocaching wunderfauna who Signal can call on for specific superpowers needed for different caches/weather/terrain/CITO needs. Or maybe a character batch would be more fun...the Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam type of guest stars? Hmmmm.

lol. Oh dear lord. I dunno if I could take a full cast of characters.

 

Well, I would just like to thank all of you for this thread. I remain enlightened. I have to admit, before simply thought, "Eh, whatever... it's a freakin' frog with an antennae. Whatever floats their boat." But now that I've read the official signal page, I think she's cool.

 

I love the drawing with signal walking with an orange scarf on. It's great from a design standpoint: Simple and full of joy.

Sometimes Signal gets special urges. Feelings that make him want to search in alternative directions. Fuzzy, furry feelings.

 

Sometimes Signal uses a Magellan.

It's a little girl frog...

Not a him.

Look at her.

OK, there may be some little boy frogs who carry purses,

but look at the perfect posture;

do you know any boy frogs that sit up straight,

with their knees together?

I think the bottom line is the last paragraph...

 

Frogs are cool.

 

Happy Veterans Day! From one old vet to all the others out there. Thank you.

How about a blue 'devil-duck'...

Nah, the blue devil duckie would be the bad cacher who always tries to get Signal to cheat the system, place caches in dangerous locations, log his own cache, real naughty stuff like that.

 

Kind of a Goofus and Gallant thing. (hmmm, people sometimes do call me Drufus)

 

Drufus and Signal.

Signal does have an annoying sidekick, Static. Static is a fly that runs around going Zzt! in the office. It is particularly annoying around the time we release a new site enhancement.

 

Signal is a dude, dude. :rolleyes:

Frogs are amphibian. And amphibian's can change sex if need be. So depending on the time of month (or what ever) , Signal is what ever sex It needs to be. Watch "Jurassic Park" to get the real facts. :D

I always thought signal looked like a boy. But I stopped playing with frogs a long time ago. Everytime I pick one up it seems to pee on my hand. Who needs froggy pee!

:) If you like signal the frog, or frogs in general, go to the travel bug forum and check out "Frogs being T-O-A-D (back to the beginning)" You might enjoy this. There is also a second one called "Frogs being t-o-a-d (How it was done)"

I found signals stat bar, guess what, no finds, no hides. :)

The tough-as-nails Washington cache reviewer determined that Signal's "maintainable distance" for a cache placement was a hop, a skip and a jump. When a cache one mile from his lily pad was archived on this basis, Signal lost interest in hiding and finding caches, preferring instead to focus on his mascot and CITO roles, and spending his lucrative merchandise royalty checks on tins of imported gourmet flies.

which is why Signal has an antenna on his head. Yeah, he's a bit of a cyborg but he doesn't mind.

 

Signals a Borg!!! ;) (He also not a boy or girl but an IT. :) )

 

You will be assimilated, resistance is futile!! Why do ya think we're all addicted to Geocaching. :)

Hey a comic strip would be awesome. "The Adventures of Signal and Static!"

 

Ummmm......well I may be an idiot but I just realized that these little green smilies....

Edited spelling.
