I am wondering if the simplist approach might be the best way to meet the need for folks to discuss Earthcaches? We could just add a Tab under the Hunting and Hiding heading, labeled Earthcache Discussion.

Would this meet the need?

UMMMMMM...Why? Does the WGA HAVE to be ALL about what GC.com???? I myself have a few Location less Caches listed on Terracaching.com and do have a regular listed terracache that's been found only twice....

And I'm sure I'm taking this out of context but if your not an EC Master you don't count? That's why I hate rankings and numbers and titles.

Well said, some very good points.

Terracaching is a great sport to compliment your geocaching. For those seeking a challenge, higher quality of caches, and a self governing forum of local sponsors that approve of caches and thus keep the quality high, this is for you. If a cache gets approved and subsequent finders determine the quality low, it will reflect in the famous "rating/points" system and eventually it may get dropped off the site.

There's nothing wrong with wanting a title, number, or rank, we see it all the time on GC.com..."it's all about the numbers". Just don't push it onto others as you know it can become a sore topic. I have yet to apply for the EC Masters. I don't need the title or the pat on the back like others are seeking. My pleasure comes from the education I receive, that others receive, and from my communication with land managers. Planning and developing an EC is no different then planning and developing a very good quality cache placement and "story" (cache page) to go with it. Good things take time and thought. Too many cachers have missed this and focus more on quantity than quality.

So I guess what I'm saying instead of developing a forum into some dichotomous key that places everything into a cubbyhole that nobody can navigate through lets keep it open but in generalities.

Hi Passing Wind,

First of all, a big hearty welcome to the Wisconsin forums. I am really looking forward to heading up to Ashland/Bayfield to do what looks like a whole bunch of excellent earthcaches you have put out there. I am quite sure that if we area able to add an earthcache forum, you would have a lot of great experience to draw upon, and I look forward to your contributions.

Second, it is great to see our state turn into a hotbed of Earthcache activity with the solid work of yourself, Lostby7, Auntie Nae, The Tapps, and others.

Third, and most importantly, the "more cowbell" has already been stolen from SNL by Geopink. Wink

Howdy Passing Wind...that is quite the collection of Earthcaches you have there. I hope you stick around as there is lots we could learn from your travels...
