May 31st[edit]

Did anybody go to the hash coordinates of 2008-05-31? If not, I think we can remove that date from the list of 'notable dates'. By the way, the location does not look wet at all. MHD 08:32, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Removed it now MHD 13:01, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Suggestion Alternative Locations[edit]

Since half of this graticule is covered by water, could it be a sensible idea to change the algorhitm for this meeting point to end up in the southern half more often? This would certainly improve the number of possible meeting locations, or merely suggest a secondary if the primary one is out of reach. There are numerous possible implementations; for example:

  • flip/mirror the graticule when the meeting point touches water,
  • compress the vertical distance by half,
  • several limitations, conditions or mathematical operations combined ;) .

Any other idea's ?
