Category Proposal - BIG whatsamacallits


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Im new to Waymarking, but I have spent a lot of the last couple of weeks finding creating new waymarks. I had found a bunch when I was on vacation but in my home town there isnt many already. I am creating all of the new ones.

I dont really know how to do this, so this is my first attempt at proposing a new category.

 

if anyone wants to correct my method that would be great. I assume it goes like this:

1. create a group,

2. invite friends to join the group or advertise here on the forums for people to join the group,

3 when you get at least two additional members and promote them to officers you get the option to submit the group to peer review. you then have to discuss all of the details including the variables and name and when a unanimous decision is reached you submit the category for peer review.

4 pending peer review, you may have a new category, of which you are now the reviewer.

 

is this correct?

 

so here goes:

I'm starting a new group and am looking for members who want to support and possibly become officers of the group. its based on HUGE objects that you see, usually along highways, that are much bigger than they should be. see the picture for an example --->

if you are interested, go to the group at this address:

Hi 'The Talent',

 

the way you described above is right. You should promote experienced Waymarkers, not Geocaching buddies. Discuss your idea in the fourm (you do this, that's great!).

 

We have already two categories for the things you like to Waymark:

 

1. Ginormous Everyday Objects

 

or

 

2. Roadside Attractions

Thanks. I guess I missed those. Over 1000 categories, and its bound to happen.

 

I have deleted my group.

No problem! :grin: For things like that we have the forum. It takes some time to get used to all the categories.

With geocaching, I've not really had to much interest in the forums, but now I'm beginning to like them a lot more. Waymarking is much more enjoyable than anyone had described it to me.

Funny how that happens - :lol: - Welcome to the fun!
