Platinum Earth Cache Master

Recommended Posts

As a matter of interest, there are now 982 Platinum EarthCache Masters and we have awarded over 14,000 EarthCache Master awards at all levels.

 

Congratulations to everyone who has reached Platinum (in fact any) level!

 

Brilliant!

 

I wonder who will be number 1000?

 

Also - could you give a small table on how many ion each level?

Somehow I'd find it interesting how many cachers worldwilde fulfill the requirements for the various levels. These numbers certainly will be larger, in particular as the lower levels are regarded, than the numbers reported above by geoaware. I am aware that these numbers are not available.

 

Is a split-up according to countries of origin available?

Sure..

 

As of today the numbers are....

 

Bronze 9255

Silver 2479

Gold 1315

Platinum 982

And all I need is one more find in another State to go Platinum. When my son can get 2 more EC's approved, we will have to make a cache run. It would be about 6 hours of driving time just to make a round trip.

There's 1 more Platinum member in the UK now!!

 

We had found 21 Earthcaches in 8 regions across the UK, Luxembourg and Austria by the 8th of February this year, and our 3rd Earthcache was accepted on the 1st of April giving us our Platinum award.

 

Now awaiting details of the new levels...

I got mine last year after putting 3 different ones in the same park. You follow a nice loop trail around a lake to do all 3. One on Moraines, one on Deltas, and on Folds. And if you choose you can bring your fishing pole and sit back and try to catch a nice trout.

Me too. I just did Oregon and got my Gold. I live less than 3 hours away from the closest EC in Nevada. I have just never found the time.

I just finally got my platinum certification. I have found 108 ECs, but the writing part is not easy for me. The third one was approved this morning, and I'm still working on 4, 5 and 6. Even though the new 'awards' won't involve writing more, I still want to contribute. And since it is still early here, I had to tell *somebody* without possibly waking people up.

Well done - brilliant to have another Platinum cacher in - squeaked in before the new system is launched. Well Done and glad to see you are still committed to writing up new ECs

Good on you! ...and 108 finds should elevate you to the second of the new levels (I think). Thanks for being an active EarthCacher.

How do you log your earth cache's to become any level?

 

Not sure if you got a response to this. You would need to fill in this form Earthcache Masters Application Form and then you would get immediate approval for the original levels. I am certain that there would be a similar system for the new levels.

 

Looking at your profile it seems like you figured it out.

I have no idea either. Some uber-nerd does it for me and I get an e-mail about what level I am. B)

Hmm. Guess we're overdue for applying, we've found ECs in 12 states and 4 countries other than the US, and we've hidden six so far. I'll try to overcome the sllooooooooow work internet to put the application together.

 

edit: well, that was easy. Wonder what # I am? geoaware?

At GeoWoodstock IX on the weekend, there was a game where you had to fill out a sheet with cacher names that met certain criteria (over 100 solved puzzles, visited Groundspeak HQ, etc.) I was surprised that one of the toughest ones to fill out was the "Is a Platinum EarthCache Master". Now that I see there are less than 1000 of us worldwide, I guess it's not that surprising after all.

I've just gone platinum! I try to grab Earthcaches on all my road trips, so even though I've only found 43 Earthcaches so far, I've done them in 15 states and the District of Columbia!

So, how many Platinum EC Masters are there now?

 

Geoaware answered that in post No. 152. There are 982 Platinum Masters.

 

That was on March 31st. Surely over the summer, some have added? I only ask because it's close to 1000.

nice. Thanks for the update. (Really need to find a way to get those stats automated on the earthcache page. That'd be neat to watch.

Congratulations, that is awesome! When I first started aiming towards the goal of being an ECM, I thought that I will accomplish the minimum and get my stripes. It is amazing the way it gets kind of habit forming. I have made 7 ECs now and am always on the lookout to try and make some more!

We just became Platinum as of this evening. Finally got our 3rd earthcache published. We has the 20 plus earthcache finds in 5 or more states. So make it another cacher for Michigan.

I am a Platinum ECM. Without doubt earthcaches are my favourite and they take you to some of the best locations. Thanks to all the owners who have created them, for the hard work and thought that has gone into them! :D

To us and unofficially, the best locations is what it is all about. But, that's just us! Congrats on the Platinum ECM. :ph34r:

So this might be a stupid question, but what does it mean when you submit the form for Platinum, and never get a reply via email? I've definitely fulfilled the requirements, and got the Gold email immediately. I'm not really worried about it, just wondering.

 

Thanks.

How long has it been since you sent the form?

Could the email have ended up in your spam folder?

No I checked my spam folder. That was the first thing I thought of. It's been two and half months since I submitted the form, which I did about 5 minutes after receiving the notice that my third EC had been published. I copied the html code for the Platinum badge from someone's webpage, so at least I have that.

 

I also never received an email for Silver, but like I mentioned the Gold email came about 30 seconds after I hit send on the form.

I'll take care of this, sorry for the glitch.

So I swung by the shop today to get my gold and platinum pins, to learn platinum was no longer carried. BUMMER! So as a platinum member, can I ask if anyone has one available or geoaware have you thought about making the levels available like the finds? I like the mica tag I saw the other day, could we do something like that? Just a thought.... Now back to reading about Arkansas Novaculite..
