I have on more question. When the group leader sets his status to 'away', will some of their permissions transfer over to the next person in call, or will the leader have to do this themselves? I think the permission send group emails should, just because in a sense the second in call will be temporarily in charge of the group.

 

Thanks,

I think Waymarking will be a fun companion to Geocaching and am looking forward to when there will be catagories for most locations.

 

It does seem to me however, that the rules and regulations for starting a catagory must have been written by a congressional committee or maybe the IRS. I may be missing something but with all due respect, and recognizing the work and time expended, it looks like a rather simple proposition has been made quite complicated.

I thought that at first Wing Rider. Once I started going through the process to have my first category, I saw how it was really quite easy. The perceived difficulty was just unfamiliarity. The software pretty much gives you a step by step to create the group, category, and all the rest of it. Please give it a try.

So, how long before we will be able to download the Waymarking pages like we can the geocaching pages? .loc or .gpx files. These would be a great addition to the site and may increase traffic. I know we are not hunting waymarks due to this issue.

I hve a question... I created a group to manage the "dive sites" category, but it shows up as having no categories linked to it. How do I link the category to the group?

That option won't become available until you have at least 2 other officers in your Group. Pop on over to this forum to ask more questions about setting up your category.

How is this coming along? There seems to be a lot of people (including myself) waiting for this feature, before they go any further. :anitongue:

We've still got a way to go before this feature is available. Currently we're working on a fairly major site redesign which has required all our attention to date, but once this foundation is laid we'll begin work on downloads. At first we'll add simple .LOC downloads to slake your thirst while .GPX downloads are developed. The redesign should be nearing completion in a few weeks.
