If I wasnt laughing so hard I would be insulted.

 

You left out that every four years on Feb 29th the forum is closed to all except Platinum members.

really? :blink:
Really. I'm surprised you didn't know that, considering Feb 30 is closed to all except cachers with a username that contains the word "cache"! B)

what if feb 30th doesn't exist? (it really doesn't) :blink:

Another Groundspeak oversite. I hear that, to make up for it, they will be offering a Souvenir to those effected. :ph34r:

Souvenir to be issued on the following day (Feb 31)

I think geocides would be a "Random Event", not a regularly scheduled item. They just can't be predicted, as is the nature of such cataclysmic and dramatic events.

 

Well, they should be. It is very inconvenient to just go off and geocide any time somebody wants to. I mean, people have to read their logs and take time to rate the quality and angst level and all that.

 

"Groundspeak Lingo Bingo" for everyone...there's so much potential! :laughing:

 

Personally, I am hoping the Frog will decide to post the schedule as a Sticky topic.

 

So am I, in all seriousness. A little levity is much needed and appreciated in the non-Off Topic forum.

 

I have made the changes everyone suggested. But to fit everything in the schedule now goes by month instead of season. The 15th of every odd numbered month has been reserved for "the forum regulars are hostile jerks" discussion.

 

Above and beyond...

 

Excellent work. Thank you.

 

This is turning into my favourite thread.

 

(stupid spell-checker...I'm CANADIAN! That's the way it's correctly spelled up here. Geez.)

Yep - I am a new Canadian, originally from England and my stupid spell-checker doesn't even recognize Groundspeak or Geocaching, let alone favourite! That's correct to me too.......

Use the "Add to dictionary" option for those words that it doesn't recognize, but you are sure are correct.

Another Groundspeak oversight. I hear that, to make up for it, they will be offering a Souvenir to those affected. :ph34r:
What week do we get to complain about incorrect use of homonyms, bad grammar, and poor spelling?

 

Sorry TTJ, it's an affliction I am trying to deal with.

Isn't it "Which week"? :ph34r:

 

(Ok, I see the affect/effect bit, but oversight?)

I'm trying to figure out what was wrong with your post, to begin with. The bolded words are correct, as far as I can tell. Does this perhaps have something to do with those Arizona wildfires, and all that smoke?

Scroll up to his original post. AZ made the corrections within the quote.

Thanks so much for this!!!

 

I have been aware that this exists for some time, but have never seen it in print. Did you swipe it off of a platinum member??

 

So one that has come up (AGAIN) and can be added to your chart, is "cache owners won't add attributes".

 

That needs to get in there too. Thanks again!!!!

If someone wants to discuss something and doesn't want to wait until the day the topic is scheduled to be posted, all they have to do it find the topic that was posted last week and bump it.

Hmm... I still find it easier to just post whatever whenever... If you don't want to reply, then you don't have to....

Sorry to jump in like this, but this is the wrong day to be discussing this topic.

You guys are right. Sorry... Didn't mean to sound bad tempered, just saying my opinion. After all, it's not a discussion if there's only one point of view, right?

I don't want to ruin the joke. But knowschad was playing around with you. This forum schedule is a joke, he doesn't really mean that you have to wait for the correct day to truly post, so when knowschad saw you believe in the joke, he started joking with you, by saying that it was the wrong day (Complaining about the forum schedule is NOT in the schedule BTW.) You fell it a third time.

 

Sorry for ruining the joke.

We need to add the rash of c:geocides on there somewhere... though I guess that's more a one-shot deal.

 

A yearly slot reserved for general geocides would probably work...

 

Only once a year? :huh:

 

Please allow more slots than that - the geocides provide such a laugh.

 

(Just make sure that there are enough copies of the official form available on the scheduled days: Official "I Quit" form. )

Nice try at being nice, Coldgears, but please wait until the Joke Ruining day comes up on the schedule, OK?

Okay, so now we need complaining about the schedule put into the schedule.

 

With no place or time scheduled for complaining about the schedule I suggest you write to complain2Gof@gmail.com. I have always replied to complaints with the appropriate response. Or at least what I felt was the appropriate response.

 

Did you create that email for your wife?

I realize that the schedule is primarily to help newbies determine the right time to post their topics, but I think we need a couple of days for guidance to some of the "old-timers", too! First, a day to complain about how frequently some questions get asked. Second, a day to complain about the the existence of the "How did you serve?" thread. Thank you for considering these two worthy additions to the schedule.

The forum schedule is now complete. Thank you to everyone who has contributed.

Maybe it's just me, but your link takes me to a page where I am being requested to log in.

It is a Google Docs page. I have a Google account that I'm generally logged in to. That is probably what you're seeing, and why I didn't see it.

I guess.

 

I don't have a "Google account" and have no intention of ever having one.

 

Oh well.
