This is really your decision to make as there are no rules!

The debate would be along similar lines if a number of individual cachers were to join together and form a team. Should they log each of their individual finds under their team login?

You do what you believe is right.

Copper Coast Geocachers

Take a look at this video which is part of a series of 17 caches on the Copper Coast (Wallaroo/Moonta/Kadina) in South Australia.

Walk Like a Geocacher

This is the link to the Pyramid Caching series.

Another reason could be an incorrect GC Code when making the log entry!

I think it also got some recent publicity on a Podcacher podcast on the list of 100 oldest current geocaches.

Will put in our leave applications now.

2 Adults

Caravan (at the venue we hope)

No doubt some attendees will like to come early or go home late. Can the organisers clarify whether attendees can use the facilities say from the Monday prior or the Friday after the Easter Long Weekend?

Papa Bear_Left nobody has made response to a track log request :oops: It would not be cheating :shock: just setting a coarse :wink: Once you have the tracklog, download a PQ of all metro Adelaide caches, import into GSAK, export caches into OziEXplorer, load the track log and you've got a cache rai...

Depends on what your definition of "cheap" is! For mapping software OziExplorer is reasonably cheap, however you then need to consider the costs of maps. If you are considering a SatNav, there are some models about which are less than $200 with maps, but these units are not as versatile as OziExplor...

A Mega Event, like any other event, needs to be at a location, not scattered across a continent! The ridiculous extreme, otherwise, would be an event that was held in every place where a cacher happened to be at a certain time. Hey Presto, super-mega-global event! Hmmm - I think you are on to somet...

With approval from those that have already made donations. Perhaps the cost of creating the entity could come from those donations. The entity should be registered as a national association. Likewise, if no GCA member is a legal eagle in their other life, some of the funds could be used to obtain a ...

My final issue is, would those who donated get their money back as it would no longer be needed? As one that has made a relatively small donation, I'm not fussed about a refund. Without wanting to hijack this thread, subject to approval from other donators, perhaps some of the funds could be used t...

Assuming this meets with general approval, I'd like to make two nominations: Richary Rhinogeo Both have been around the game for awhile, have numerous finds of caches from both sites, have been active in these forums (>500 posts) and expressed opinions on this topic in the original thread. Thanks f...

Whilst geocaching experience does count, I believe some business acumen would be more beneficial in order to make such an important decision for GCA. I'd prefer cachers advise what there employment background is to get a more business like approach to the decision makiing. Hopefully we have some law...

OK, One final, very last thing to say. Donations: There are 63 people who have donated so far. That's not a very high number given the number of people who "said" they would donate and haven't. The total is about $3,500, but the average is in no way representative of anything. I know one man who ha...

Re: Sponsorship Opportunity

Originally the GCA community was asked to raise some thousands of dollars to lease a server for the next 12 months. The amount sought has been discussed in quite a few threads and as the developers learnt more and discussed long term growth, the amount sought has varied. The current target for a 1 ...

It's donationware.
Is there any way to "format" the output as to how the co-ordinates are written to the EXIF data fields in the photo image?

Thanks

I made a tongue-in-cheek comment here some time ago (as an April Fool's Day joke, I think) that gc.com were going to be charging a couple of bucks to list a cache. It has merit, I think! With very few exceptions, an extra $2 wouldn't add much of a percentage of the cost of our caches, but it might ...
