[edit] Time travel

I'll remain skeptical that NWoodruff actually did that expedition until photos of gps confirmation are put up. He also didn't make the expedition bold on the Atlanta page, despite how it was a Saturday expedition (unlike his normal), which suggests quick "fixing".

The above still need confirmation. The second is understandable as it's new, but the first is too unusual for my liking.

I was actually going to give praises on going well above what you had done at almost twice of all previous months, but since you have doubted me and what I have done consistently for the last seven months, I'll explain myself. I take pictures of dates and times of all my expeditions in case any one like you questions them. I'll post pictures of both soon enough. I forgot my card reader that reads the flash memory of my camera at work again. Saturday the 15th isn't in bold because it isn't an official meetup. Official meetups are in BOLD. It occurred after the 4pm time because it was my girlfriends daughters birthday. I usually make the expedition page when I upload the images. I had given my girlfriend the flash memory card because it has the pictures of the youngest birthday party on it. She took the flash memory to make pictures at a local photo shop. She hasn't given me back the flash card yet. If you want I can send you the tracklog tonight if you would like and or still in doubt. I created the 31st page with out pictures because I knew you were challenging me. I saw it was a close race and started flipping back through my pictures to make sure I didn't miss any expeditions. As I was doing that I remembered the 15th expedition on the day of the youngest birthday and created the page then. If you want to call me a liar, call me one to my face. --NWoodruff 00:19, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
If you think that my number of Geohashes is higher than usual, I am the only Geohasher in the Atlanta, and Roswell graticule. Both June and July, Atlanta was 1st and Roswell was 3rd. This month, I've geohashed less than either of those months. One month soon, I'll make Atlanta first and Roswell Second. My goal will then be to make Atlanta first, Roswell Second, and Athens third. --NWoodruff 00:19, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Any way, I'm glad that you have got out and geohashed. Keep up the good work. --NWoodruff 00:19, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
I wouldn't want to call you a liar. It's just a bit unlucky (for the people of 50 11) that you forgot about the August 15th expedition for more than two weeks. I don't expect anyone to upload his or her photos immediately after an expedition or write a longer report, but creating the page with the categories isn't that time-consuming. The way it went, it was all a bit misleading and you - or the Atlanta graticule - turned out to be the winner once again - Congratulations! (By the way ... it wasn't me, who wrote the lines on top.)--Reinhard 06:37, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Guys, I think I'm gonna give up *any* spare time activitiy with a community starting flame wars behind it. Be cool, geohashing is supposed to be fun and not a bloody spartan competition! --Paintedhell 06:44, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Does it mean, from now on you're only geohashing during your working time? ;-) Well, there's just one bad thing about geohashing, which is the achievements that instigate hashers to compete with others. And there are two ways to handle that: Keeping cool and reasonable and let the others win the achievements or get into the competiton. In August, I thought I could have a little fun competing with Atlanta, and I had. Don't worry about that too much - boys just wanna have fun.--Reinhard 07:16, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
No, I think I really give up on it and go biking somewhere else instead, somewhere nice with maybe an actual sight to see. Maybe someone tells me when tomorrow the couch potato hits me on the head. So I can throw it back. --Paintedhell 08:20, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
If you don't want to stay then feel free to leave. I do think it's unfair that we've all been labelled "freaks" due to the actions of one (anonymous) user. What little "flame war" there was has already died down. Geohashing is fun. --joannac 08:40, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
