Talk:Golf geohash achievement

From Geo Hashing
Jump to: navigation, search

This might be better expanded to a generalized 'the area was dedicated to a specific activity, and we did that activity' - eg, we're taking your dog to the dog park at the hash point, or the hash point is on the slide at a waterpark, and you went down the slide.

Obviously that can be abused, but it seems like more in the 'random adventure' spirit to have a 'random adventure'.

This was added in the early, wild west, days of geohashing, and only exists because it was added so early. The general consensus now is that "this interesting thing happened" should be a Gratuitous Ribbon. This should stay as is, just to preserve history. =D --aperfectring 17:33, 8 August 2012 (EDT)
Yup. Just a general interesting area achievement would not be very interesting, new area-type achievements are usually not amazing *and* widespread enough to find support, and having too many of them would kind of dilute the appeal. So you're pretty much stuck to golf courses and church yards if you want a lucky location, or to claim a custom ribbon if you think it is something amazing you were visiting. That's not an official endorsement of golf courses or churches, or to imply they are anything special, they were just the first ones to get ribbons in the early days. -- relet 05:08, 9 August 2012 (EDT)
