I split off this question from an unrelated thread and created a separate topic for it.

The link to the current submission form can be found at http://www.geocaching.com/seek/

I've not tried using the beta form, so I don't know what it's like to use.

 

You've already read the Guidelines, hopefully:

Hi,

 

I have just placed my first cache today and had the excitement of having it found :)

 

dont know how to find or enter the coordinates of cache

I have a Garmin GPS which has a "Mark" button on it.

When I press this I get an immediate readout of the Northings and Westings.

If you have a GPS it should have a similar facility.

 

You need to make sure that the co-ordinates are correct.

I did this by approaching the cache from different directions and pressing the "Mark" button when I arrived at GZ.

I did this numerous times ( the cache was under trees ) and took an average.

 

Parking was a problem with mine - so I provided co-ordinates to the nearest safest parking place.

 

There is a box that needs to be ticked to bring your cache details to the attention of the Reviewer.

Do not tick this until you are absolutely sure that your cache details are ready for publication.

 

You can also add a note to the Reviewer and ask for advice if you need to.

 

Hope this helps :)
