Largest geohash achievement

From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

This per-graticle award is for the most participants at a meetup with a minimum of 5 participants. A participant is someone who comes to the location either because they looked up the coordinates of the day's meet, or because they were brought or invited by someone who did. If your geohash merely falls at a large public gathering, or near a zombie horde, all attendees may not automatically be counted as geohashers, but you are welcome to recruit as many of them to the cause as you can. Note that it is not recommended that you recruit zombies for geohashing.

[edit] Proof

Proof can be any combination of group photographs, meetup sign-in sheets, and people linked on the expedition page who attest they were there. For example if you have a group photograph taken at 4 p.m. that shows 20 people and another at 5 p.m. showing 25 people, and fifteen people are in both photographs, you have proof of 30 attendees. You may want to report the peak attendance, but as long as there is no time in between when there is no one there, everyone who arrives is counted.

[edit] Ribbon

The More the Merrier

This template may be used to place an achievement ribbon on your graticule or expedition page, either for record-breaking meetups, or to commemorate the largest meetup in your graticule.

Individuals may take the ribbon as well, for the Migration Geohash, commemorating a large meetup they participated in. It is recommended that you report the maximum number of people attending while you were present, if that is different from the total achieved.

Follow the instructions on the template page in order to configure the ribbon.
