    Waymarking.com

    did everyone get this email from Jermey Irish:

    Dear Premium Member:

    Everyone at Groundspeak thanks you for your ongoing support. Without your help we would have been unable to provide for the growing needs on the Geocaching.com web site. Each year we have doubled in site visitors, machines and server space to maintain the site and accommodate new geocachers and veterans of the activity.

    Today we'd like to thank you by providing you a sneak peek at the new solution for locationless caches. As many of you may know we have had a moratorium for new locationless caches for some time. After a lot of work we have created, not a new section, but an entirely new web site called Waymarking.com. Although it does have its roots in the concept of locationless caches it takes a different look at the activity.

    While locationless caches would have a log for each location, a waymark becomes the log entry and that location can actually be logged. We also added a feature that allows new waymark category managers (which are like locationless cache owners) the ability to provide variables for new waymarks (locationless cache logs). So a maze category might ask a new waymark what kind of maze it is, or a lighthouse category manager would request that you provide the height of the lighthouse you mark. Eventually this information will be searchable and displayable in many ways on the site.

    This is an entirely new concept and, as in the beginning of geocaching, will create many exciting challenges. Hopefully you can stop into the forums and provide any constructive criticisms or questions about the new site.

    The site is now only available to Premium and Charter members. The site will be open for viewing by anyone in the next few weeks. Stop by and let us know what you think!

    Thank you again for your support. We hope you enjoy waymarking!

    I think every premimum member got the email.
    May those who love us, love us. And those that don't love us, may God turn their hearts; and if he doesn't turn their hearts may he turn their ankle so we may know them by their limp.... An Old Gaelic Blessing
