I am trying to find out who all has been a geocache reviewer for Arkansas. Where they were from and what time period they were a reviewer for Arkansas. Thanks for any help!

I believe our first reviewer was Max Cacher. He is JoGPS from Tennessee. Not sure on the dates.
Our next reviewer was NatureFish. He is from Alabama and goes by The Alabama Rambler. June of 2005 to August of 2006
That brings us to our current reviewer Chuck Walla. I cannot seem to find out anything on that elusive reptile. August 2006 to present.

There have been a few others that filled in a little from time to time but as far as my knowledge goes that is all there have been officially for the state.

Those are the three I remember. Max Cacher went by Tennessee Geocacher for little while also.

How long were they reviewers for Arkansas?
Are the earlier ones still reviewers in another state?
Who is Lord Sterling?

The dates on MaxCacher (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=22039026-12df-49cd-951c-24f4925da512) are hard to pin down because prior to 2005 a lot of the caches did not have the published log on them as they do today.
I did find that he was still publishing some caches in Arkansas after NatureFish took over. Probably filling in when needed.
He is no longer a reviewer. He changed his profile page when he stopped reviewing to give a little more info on his career in geocaching.

NatureFish (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=4b126531-f351-4ee3-a0fa-61f3ab80d8ac) was our reviewer from June 2005 to August 2006. This information came directly from his reviewer profile page. I know he is no longer a reviewer.

Lord Stirling (http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=408214) is an "at large" reviewer who fills in when your local reviewer is away, or needs a hand when the workload is heavy.

Has any of the Arkansas cachers that have a few finds and hides under her/his belt thought about becoming a reviewer and helping Chuck Walla out in publishing caches, keeping caches active that have been disabled to long, looking over needs archived request and other things?

Just wondering,
Thanks,

Sounds like a heck of a deal. Wonder how Chuck Walla and Groundspeak would feel about it?

I'm not sure, but I could send Groundspeak an email and see. That is if we had a volunteer to help Chuck Walla. I don't have good enough internet out here on the road to be a volunteer.

I have thought a lot about it over the last couple of years and would love to do it but I just would not have the time between work and family obligations. If anyone is interested though check this page (http://support.groundspeak.com/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=278) for more information on what they are looking for.

I know someone who applied to Groundspeak to become a reviewer in the past couple months. It was even suggested that Chuck Walla & the newbie could split the state in half, to even out the workload... Groundspeak declined, citing the cacher "did not have enough variety in GC finds/hides in their background to qualify as a reviewer yet". Although no specifics were given as to what the "right combination would be". Before anyone asks, the newbie chooses to remain anonymous & it is most definitely NOT me. Whether or not a different volunteer would elicit a different response, who knows.

Funny, but no one has bothered to ask me whether I needed help. It would seem to be just common courtesy to have done so. Well, the answer is that I don't need help at this time.

I would agree that asking if you need help would be a good courtesy if the goal is to become a reviewer to "help" in Arkansas.

However...

I would say it is commendable that someone wishes to be a reviewer. It's a good goal to have. The ultimate honor and achievement in geocaching.

Hmmmmm.....I think that there are many times that people help each other out without asking first. I am VERY thankful for those cachers that do general maintance of my caches without being asked.....I have never thought that those people are wanting to take over my caches just thought they were being helpful.

You know, gingerose, we greatly appreciate those caches who volunteer to put in a dry log, replace a broken cache, or just write a really nice log. Cachers are some of the greatest and most generous folks we have ever met. They volunteer to lend a helping hand when a family has a financial burden. they add much needed prayers for someone in crisis, and welcome newcomers into the "fold" with open arms........ The list would go on and on and on. We, like you, appreciate each and every kind and unsolicited act. A time for a special, "Thank YOU", to each of you that have freely volunteered to help someone else (whether a geocachers or not).

Chiming in a little late, but from attending the Reviewer's Forum at GWX we learned that the current reviewers are the ones who recommend the new reviewer and that they have qualities they look for in a person.
