Re: The OpenCaching NA 5th Anniversary Contest

Wow! The month is almost half over and I haven't even started yet. I am still planning to participate in the contest and I've shared it with a few friends that may participate as well. Good luck everyone! I can hardly wait until my kids go back to school and I can focus better on finding caches. Sad...

How often is their pdf updated? I noticed the URL said 2012.

Re: Thoughts on Our Recent Cacher Diversity Training

Maybe one of the things for the contest next year should be something along the lines of introduce someone new to OpenCaching.us? I like that one! Of course people would have to be honest, and not creating sock puppet accounts. I can see IP addresses. Not that I ever need to. Except for spammers. W...

Re: Site suggestion - permalinks

The blog already looks like it is set up with the permalinks as I suggested. It's the opencaching.us site itself. Unfortunately, I don't know much about developing sites in anything other than WordPress, so I wouldn't know where to begin to try to help fix the permacodes here. But I do know a fair a...

Re: Thoughts on Our Recent Cacher Diversity Training

My background. I signed up for a geocaching.com account in 2008. In 2012 I went with my daughters on a trip to Savannah, Georgia and they earned a Geocaching badge while they were there. So that was the first time I had ever helped actually look for a cache. We found 2. In 2013, I went with another ...

Site suggestion - permalinks

I'm not sure why I didn't notice earlier, but I noticed this evening that the opencaching.us website uses default permalinks. You may want to consider changing the setting to post name instead. It makes finding posts a little easier and shortens the URL. It also helps with Google searches. It doesn'...

Re: Diversified Cacher Progress Report

I'll stay here. Thank you. :) Now to just get the Boy Scouts to rewrite the merit badge book to not be so specific to Groundspeak.

Re: Advice for Boy Scout Geocaching Merit Badge

Need an opinion. One of the requirements is to track a Travel Bug. Do you think it would be okay to track a GeoKrety instead? I'm still new to being a merit badge counselor.
