Talk:Curse of Unawareness

From Geohashing

Does this mean that if I can prove I've been there, it counts as a successful expedition? --Ilpadre 10:27, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

IMHO: no, because it's still no geohashing expedition. You need to be there on purpose and aware of the coordinates. But if that ever happens to you, we'll all happily read about your proof. --Ekorren 21:34, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Retro unawareness

A discussion just came up about two more unresolved points with this consolation prize:

  • a) If you visited the coordinates on the right day, but before Dow opening, so that the coordinates were not available at that time, does it still count?
  • b) Does this extend to days before publication of the algorithm, so that there actually wasn't any point to be unaware of because geohashing in itself didn't exist at that time?

My own opinion:

a) yes, for sake of fairness. In some timezones it would be impossible otherwise on weekdays for dates before 30W introduction)

b) undecided. Could even be made into a consolation prize of its own (Prophets Geohash?)

I almost did it.

I was biking on the Virginia Creeper Trail this past Saturday and would have been about half a mile to a mile from the next day's point...had I known and had it been the next day. - Oracle989
