With the new opencaching.com site up and running now....I have to ask, does geocaching.com allow us to list our GC listings on other services?

I don't see why not. Quite simply, they can't stop you.

No but if I'm in violation they can suspend my account.

I'm not sure how you'd be in violation of anything. Geocaching.com is just a listing service, same as opencaching.com, terracaching.com, navicaching.com, etc. They don't own YOUR cache, they just allow you to list it on their site if it meets the guidelines.

I'd say the only thing you probably can't do is promote your opencaching listing on your geocaching.com page.

I've cross listed most of my letterbox hybrids on the letterboxing site, and I'm still here.

I have cross listed my SpookyBoy listing to the new Garmin Opencaching.com site. We'll see.

What makes this even more interesting is that Garmin has a import button which you can import your GC caches to their site...that's really gonna make GC see red.

There is no problem with cross listing. You just can't mention on the page that the cache is also listed elsewhere. They don't want you promoting the competition.

So...if I transfer all my stuff over to OC(? Confused ) does that mean that I'm just 6 shy of 1000 or am I still just 3 shy of 500? OH that's right! It's not about the numbers, it's about how many SIGNED log sheets. wink
