Talk:Santa Ana, California
I am automating the list of expeditions, once it is correct I will remove the manually added ones. I seriously doubt this graticule will ever be so active as to need a separate page for expeditions, but that will be easy enough when the time comes. This page could also use a notable events section. -Stephen Cerruti 14:39, 8 May 2012 (EDT)
I plan on cleaning up the active users. I am thinking that I will move inactive users to a separate page and if necessary create a separate list of "Notable Users". I will use contribution dates to decide Active/Inactive, but I believe that with the exception of LucasBrown all of these users are inactive. Regardless I will notify them of the change in hopes that it stirs them from the couch. I would also like to create a section for famous (geohashing wise) visitors who expeditioned in the graticule. - Stephen Cerruti 20:46, 8 May 2012 (EDT)
The following user entries were added by IP address and sufficiently long enough ago to warrant removal:
- OK, I live in Anaheim. Sort of disappointed that Santa Ana got the coveted Graticule name, but what could be done about that. Nada! --g
- Newport Beach here. -Matt
- BF and I in Huntington Beach, and Santa Ana actually makes perfect sense, as it is the county seat for OC and generally considered the most central (presuming we are exiling all those deep-south county weirdos, and we are). -Sarah
- Laguna -Sean
- Just moved here, living in Lake Forest. I'll try to get to a meet-up, but I don't happen to have a GPS and don't know the area very well, so that might be difficult. But it can be done! -Steve
- Carlsbad/Encinitas, but will be moving to Berkeley for school in 3 weeks -Mitchell
- Irvine, near UCI. -Alex
- Also Irvine, UCI Student. Have a tendency to be very late to meetups I've been to... -Erik
- Kelly from Riverside, here. I'm going to try to get my roommate, my cousin, and her husband out to a Saturday geohash soon. But not this weekend cuz it's BLIZZCON! :)

This manually entered list of meetups will probably be changed to noteable events once the expedition list below is fully populated.
