From Geohashing

You can talk to me here if you feel like. Just don't forget to sign the posts. ~~~~ --Tom 08:38, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

I marked your July 29 and July 31 expeditions as Category:Expedition planning since I couldn't tell if there had been an expedition. Once you add a story (and/or photos), please mark them Category:Expeditions, along with Category:Coordinates reached or Category:Coordinates not reached. I would have waited a little longer, but I'm compiling statistics through the end of July. Cheers! --Thomcat 15:42, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Hey, thanks. Unfortunately i still need a few days to have time to edit these pages. But for your information: all expeditions will be Category:Expeditions. I have doubts about the other categories though. The hashpoints on the 27th, 29th and 31st were all in private areas, and i couldn't get within like 25-50 meters. I don't know if that is Category:Coordinates reached or Category:Coordinates not reached. What is the official viewpoint? --Tom 19:48, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
I don't know about "official", but I posted my rationale at Category:Expedition outcomes. --Thomcat 20:34, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
I was just joking. Anyway, that is a well written guideline, so i will categorise expeditions according to that.
Thus: 27th, 29th, and 31st are Category:Coordinates not reached and Category:Failed - No public access.
Details and pics coming soon. --Tom 22:07, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Wiki wierdness

And the answer is: There are templates for meetup on date and meetup in month, but a lot of category pages were created with just the tag for the enclosing category. Is it important? No, I was just wondering why they didn't sort together. -- Jev

Thanks for the answer. And... it's not important that it's not important. I'm usually overly curious about everything. --Tom 20:15, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Reverting spam

Hehe, this is why I, despite the race, try and take a second to eyeball the page and make sure I'm reverting spam, and not someone else's edit. Looking forward to racing with you next time! :) --joannac 19:12, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, i made it sure that i was reverting spam. but i was reverting slowly, because things were happeneing around me, and by the time i pushed the save page button, you'd made the change, and thus the system made my undo to the actual page. i was way surprised. looking forward, too. --Tom 19:17, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
Wow, that's really weird behaviour. --joannac 19:19, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Dammit, you're too fast! --joannac 22:52, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Bicycle hashes

Hi, on Bicycle_Geohashes you added a bicycle hash dated 11-11 with a link to a tracklog of a hash at 2008-10-31 47 19. That seems incorrect to me, since you walked to the hash at 11-11 --Arvid 12:50, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

true. i will correct it as soon as possible. it was a geohash on 10.31. actually, but i didn't have time to create that expedition page yet. plus i messed up the references. thanks. -- 16:28, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Bicycle geohashes page

It has been suggested (see Talk:Bicycle geohashes) that the name of that page is a bit misleading -- the name implies it is a list of geohashes which meet the requirements for the bicycle geohash achievement, but actually it's a list of all expeditions, whether the coordinates were reached or not, that involved a bicycle for all or just some of the journey. I have re-written the introduction to that page to make it clearer, but would appreciate knowing if you have an opinion about moving the page to something like "cycling geohashers" or similar. I'm consulting the people who cycle most! Thanks for your time. -- Benjw 21:01, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

relet is coming to town

Hey Tomtom,

I will be in town on the weekend of April 22-24. Shall we try to reach a geohash if anything is near? :) There's also the Journey to the End of the Night on Friday evening ( ) if you are interested.
