This user earned the Déjà Vu Geohash Achievement
by reaching the ({{{latitude}}}, {{{longitude}}}) geohash on [[{{{date}}} {{{latitude}}} {{{longitude}}}|{{{date}}}]], and previously on {{{olddate}}}.

This achievement indicates that the geohasher has visited a geohash on the correct day, but can also prove that he or she was at the same site in the past, before the geohash location became known. This is not an award you can claim without leaving your house. Unless of course the geohash location is *in* your house, in which case it's (a) rather easy to prove you were there before and (b) more exciting to take the Couch Potato Geohash achievement instead. But go ahead, take both if you're greedy.

Proof

Ideal proof would consist of a dated photo of you at the site in the past, along with the present day photo of you, at the same place, in a similar pose, holding the GPS. "Dated" does not have to mean the actual date. Signs of aging, development of the site, or it clearly being a different season in your "before" photograph are all acceptable proof.

If the original photo shows you holding a GPS with proof of date and location, then you earn either the Spookily Prescient Déjà Vu Geohash achievement or the Constantly Takes Photographs of Self with GPS achievement. You choose.

Cheating

Cheating is encouraged for this achievement. That's what makes it comedic. I envision a quick wardrobe change into 70s disco gear, an onsite make-over that takes five years off your appearance (excellent if the geohash is at a spa), an application of (safe, biodegradable) fake snow, or perhaps a quick shave or haircut (swap the "before" and "after" pictures for best results).

History repeats itself

You know, it has to - because nobody listens.

If your hashes lead you to the same places over and over again, an extra ribbon would look nice, wouldn't it?

Use the Template:Gratuitous ribbon for a ribbon like this.
