Official EarthCache Banner - the results!

Recommended Posts

After a competition in the forums and over 600 EarthCachers voting, we now have a winner. The Official EarthCache Banner was created by jokergil and he will be sent a boxed set of EarthCache Master Geocoins. You can get the banner here

Second place went to MJSDB and third place went to Fermentum. They will both receive a set of EarthCache masters coins.

Very cool! Nice of you to send multiple prizes.

Time to update some HTML on my pages.

Thanks for involving the community.

Juhuuu finally, there are results. Thank you for the second place,I'm really looking forward to the coins and of course congratulations to jokergil. Thanks a lot again for the great competition it was really fun. I've just one more question. Can we also include the other winning banner (2nd and 3rd place) in our ec-pages?

Congradulations to all. Is it just me, or is there some kind of problem with the link to the banner? :)

Worked pretty good for me.

Well done Jokergil and to MJSDB! Looking forward to the coins!

 

Thanks everyone for voting!

 

Feel free to use my banner (although the wrong one was put on this thread, the later version had shadowed writing!) if it is permitted!

 

Regards

Here is some quick html if you just want to tack the banner on at the end of the listing. I am assuming hotlinking to the image is ok...

<br />
<br />
<center><!-- Earthcache Banner -->
<div><a href="http://www.earthcache.org"><img src="http://www.geosociety.org/earthcache/Images/banners/OfficialECBanner.jpg" /></a></div>
<!-- End Earthcache Banner --></center>

First of all, congratulations to MJSDB, and Fermentum ... and to all who participated.

 

Thank you to everyone who voted. And thanks also to the team Earthcache, to allow the three winning designs will be more variety!

 

Thanks.

To update the html of my erathcaches ...

 

Greetings from Barcelona (Spain)

 

PS: I really want to get geocoins... will be the first.

I hate to admit this :P but I don't know how to put a picture on to my page listing. So I can't put the banner on. I'm sure this is an easy html code linking to the image hosting site. I just don't know what it is. Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Thanks!

Hello, unfortunatelly, banner disappeared from Geosociety.org website - which means broken link in hundreds of cache pages. Is there any change to contact Geosociety and get banner back to original URL? It would be better solution than fixing so many linked listings.

Here is the URL of the copy of the EarthCache banner that I uploaded to geocaching.com for my EarthCache:

 

https://s3.amazonaws.com/gs-geo-images/88e3c6d5-d7f5-4796-ba26-2dcc3624a6a2_l.jpg

 

Thank you Nira, this is useful for everyone who'd like to fix his listing immediately.

But I will try to contact GeoSociety to get banner back to its original URL. So many listings are linked to that one ..

Hi,

 

We just updated our site so this link:

http://www.geosociety.org/earthcache/Images/banners/OfficialECBanner.jpg

 

Should now point again to the proper file.

 

The actual file resides here now (the old URL just redirects here), so please use this URL moving forward:

http://www.geosociety.org/images/gsa/earthcache/OfficialECBanner.jpg

 

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Now that the redirect is set up, on any cache pages that had the old URL, the image should appear properly.

 

If somebody has a page that points to the old link, and can check to see that things are "okay", I'd love to hear their results.

 

--Matt, GSA

Hello Matt,

 

thanks a lot - I can confirm that redirect works and image is displayed correctly even with the old link.

Have a nice weekend!
