250 Free Coins

From reading the posts I assume that the log entry has to be made first on geocaching.com and then at coin quest right?  (Geocaching.com seems to be having a lot of problems tonight.  Will put "for coin quest requirement" in log entry for future caches. 

 

Also if a virtual was placed in 2003 it would qualify for either the virtual category #8 or the cache placed in 2003 #12, right?

Aye matey, tis true..ye be claiming it fer ye #8 or #12 but not fer both....

 

I have another pesky question please - maybe it's been covered elsewhere, but I can't find it...

 

In the post above it seems that you've said that you can log virtuals for other categories (like cache set in 2003), but I just notived the general rules state that except for category 8, any cache that contains a logbook will qualify.

 

Please can you clarify?

 

Thanks,

 

Bambi.

Looks like we could be doin the double step here....by rights, there should be a log book to claim the cache placed in 2003 - now perhaps there was more to this quote as I don't see an answer to the first question...perhaps not - we've been known a time or two to be makin the wrong call - If this be the case, then by all means....you have caught us and so do as you will...

 

So you are saying that it should be a cache with a logbook, but since you've said this it is up to us? So if we are honourable we'll abide by the original wishes if we haven't already logged it... Dang it! I guess we'd better do the right thing!!!

Captn's hearin that the Coin Questors be gettin a might competitive. Not to worry mates cause alls fair in love and coin quests. Somes likes to figure things out for themselves, somes like the Captn can't find anything when theys 3 sheets to the wind :) and needs all the helps they can gets.

 

Thar bee a fierce battle for thems low numbered coins, but the real fight will be for that last plunder in the chest. By thens Captn knows the secrets of the map will be no more, but yee must still complete all the steps.

 

Captn says have fun cause in the end it all just a game. ;)

Ok I have to ask....

 

#3 In or near a cemetary.

 

I've found every cemetary cache in a 30 mile radius.

 

Would a Pet Cemetary be ok?

Captn will try to get that lazy skeleton crew to fix the problem. But he knows thar be partin, and grog drinkin on their mind so it will take him a couple of lashings and o bunch a yellin to get them swabin the deck properly again.

 

Keep findn your caches, the crew will fix the problem tonight.

I'm hosting an Event(GCRDAQ) on Dec. 4 for #15. When can I log this Cache? Do I have to wait untill the 4 or can I log it sooner? It is on the calender so it is an offical event.

 

Love the game!

I'm not a pirate and I don't play one on TV but I would assume like everything else, you can't log attended until you've actually attended so you'll have to wait until the 4th. As a side note, I'm happy for this as my event is on Dec. 1 allowing me to swoop past you! :-) (Although, it means others will be able to swoop past both of us!)

Correct, the Capt'n has already threatened "Plank Walkin'" for someone that did that same thing.

 

Wait until the event has happened. :P

Thank you. I'm glad it wasn't my eyes...I already have enough problems with them... :o

I screwed up. :o I did my event cache on Nov 19th, thought I logged it as an event, but it was just pointed out to me that I logged it as the FTF cache. Can I fix this? I still need to do a FTF cache & I don't want to get docked for accidently logging one. Thanks for any help!!!!!! :P

Yikes, we've been erased also. :rolleyes:

We were somewhere in the # 120's.

Are only the the first 100 contenders worthy now? :rolleyes::rolleyes:

 

Here's hoping everyone has lots and lots of turkey and is too full and too sleepy to cache or log, thus allowing us to make the first page. :rolleyes:

Captn's whippin the crew to bring up yet another game. There be a bounty on the head of the crew member that lets a loose tongue slip the details

Another question...

 

Should the 12th piece of the map appear disconnected from the rest of the map, or is something wrong with my map too?

 

I'm on my portable computer and it's different than my desktop, so I thought maybe the problem was this OS.

Yes! I am so worried I won't be able to solve this thing once all my caches are logged.

We feel the same. Up to now the puzzle is a total mystery to us. No idea at all how to solve that. It would be a bad one if we tried our hardest with all the caches, complete them - and then won't be able to do the puzzle. :D

I think in that case I don't wanna hear about the fun chasing all the caches... :)

 

But I don't worry about the torn off corner. That's probably just a nice little extra to drive us nuts! :mad:

 

I think I start meditating, using the mantra "Let the fogs of mystery that are laying over this map disappear as soon as we complete it. Let the fogs of mystery that are laying over this map disappear as soon as we complete it. Let the fogs..."

 

Maybe it works?

Would THIS cache work for the Cave cache? (GC257D)
Thar cave in this cache dona seem to be a hole in the ground.

 

Captn 3 Sheets always bees a lookin for good hidy holes for his plunder. Sometime Captn, he gets lucky and plunders a rich ship and needs a big hidy hole. Sometime Captn needs just a little hole for his finest treasure. He likes caves, but a good mine, sinker hole, tunnel, even a tiny little cave are all good. Nows I wants you to keep this in mind that Captn don't want nobody doin any thin stupid, so you's stays out of dem caves if they not be safe.

Treasure Trove... Isn't that the book where you can find the real treasures that were hidden. The million dollar jeweled pins and stuff?

 

The left and right sides of the map mean nothing... cute joke tho. Sigh.

Is there any way to meet the event requirement without it being a listed geocaching event? Meaning what can we do to make a geaocaching event work for this game? We would have a log book, take photos or whatever as proof.

I'm having a problem logging in my latest cache tonight. I keep getting an error message saying I used the back button but I didn't. I edited an earlier one because of an incorrect waypoint and now I can't log mine tonight and I had planned to get the rest of the requirements this weekend. What to do now? I haven't another one ready to log tonight as my cache has been submitted but not yet approved. Any suggestions?

Alright I found the Red Herring, that one was rather simple. I have seen the coding before that is used for the next hidden message off to the West but I am unable to pin point it right now where I seen it. Would any one care to share where I may have seen this coding before? Feel free if you choose to e-mail me if you don't want to post in the forum.

Mystery Ink this is what dictionary.com says and I think it's basically what the Cache-u-Nuts said back in the thread a bit

 

stat·ue

n.

A three-dimensional form or likeness sculpted, modeled, carved, or cast in material such as stone, clay, wood, or bronze.

 

statue

 

n : a sculpture representing a human or animal

Cach-U-Nuts previously posted "But for clarification let's just say that to be a statue it must be something that is carved in a human likeness. Lets clarify it a little further to say that it must have the likeness of a human face in three dimensional relief so a bust would qualify but a sculpture of a hand or other body part that doesn't include a head would not count. Likewise, a two dimensional carving of a face would not qualify."

 

So it has to be a person, not a dino.

:mmraspberry: Well, alright then....plain english:

 

When you enter the cache information and hit submit it sets a flag. If you

try to submit the same information again you will get the scurvy message.

Going to the page where you choose the cache type turns off the Scurvy flag.

Usually the cause of getting the message is due to inappropriate use of the

back button.

 

Now get outta here ya scurvy dogs!!!

for statue quest does it have to be human or can a dinosaur qualify?

For clarification let's just say that the statue must have a face. Anything that has two eyes, and a mouth can be used.

 

are these coins gonna be trackable?

Not at geocaching.com but we will keep track of your coin number on our web site.

Sounds like a fine little girl cache.

 

  Nothing related to the game but I did want to ask about the thumbnail images that appear in some logs. (like my puppy) Why do some have them and not others?

It's simply a matter of when Mr. Cach-U-Nuts happens to be sitting at his computer. If a story in a log catches his attention then he looks for interesting pictures to post.
