Water Issue[edit]

The link for the alternative to water points is broken. The 'points west' rule also might not be the best as the shoreline near the south is very close to evenly E-W. A point a mere 10 m in the water can be shifted west by more then 20 km. Maybe a N-S solution would be better? Splitdipless 04:04, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Geohashing day 2011[edit]

So the coordinates are in the water. As such, we can go to the coordinates from May 21 for the years of 2010, 2009, and 2008 instead. 2008 is very far from Toronto, and 2010 is in water, leaving 2009. It's still around an hour and a half by transit from the University of Toronto, but I'm willing to go if someone else is thinking of attending. I have not yet decided if I'll go if it's just me.

So, anyone interested? To confirm, I am looking at the coordinates for May 21, 2009. -Srs0 09:53, 20 May 2011 (EDT)

I'd love to, but I'm in 44, -76 right now. (Splitdipless)

Ah, that's unfortunate. Good luck if you try an expedition there! -Srs0 10:54, 20 May 2011 (EDT)

I'm in Kingston right now and heading to Algonquin tomorrow, so unfortunately i also can't join in! :( --HiroProtagonist 11:06, 20 May 2011 (EDT)

Too bad. Have a good trip! -Srs0 11:10, 20 May 2011 (EDT)

In the end, I decided not to do it. The combination of it being a retro hash, an uninteresting location, nobody else going, and a four hour time commitment was enough to dissuade me. In particular, the fact that it would only be a retro hash is the part that really makes this uninteresting without other positive factors. Instead, I've decided to live vicariously through the Vancouver expedition, and to wear my geohashing shirt all day. Hopefully the coordinates are accessible next year. -Srs0 11:42, 21 May 2011 (EDT)

Mouse-over day?[edit]

Anybody else want to do something for mouse-over day? - Elbie 22:58, 22 May 2012 (EDT)

I won't be in Toronto this Saturday, sorry! -Srs0 09:37, 23 May 2012 (EDT)

Cleaning up User List[edit]

I'm thinking we should prune the "active" user list for the Toronto page. I suggest that any users whose pages have not been updated since Dec 2010 should be removed. Does anyone have any objections? I'm going to leave this idea on the talk page for 2 weeks (until Feb 14th) before going ahead with this pruning. Sbear (talk) 11:01, 4 February 2014 (EST)

Bad news Toronto[edit]

I'm invading Toronto December 8th to 13th 2015. Be on the look out for me. I plan on trying to do another Geohash when I am there. --NWoodruff (talk) 09:53, 4 November 2015 (EST)

Bad News Strikes Twice in Toronto[edit]

I'm again invading the Toronto Graticule November 8th to 13th 2016. Be on the look out for me. I'll be residing in the Stouffville area north east in the graticule. --NWoodruff (talk) 14:20, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Bad News Strikes a Third time in Toronto[edit]

I'm again invading the Toronto Graticule December 21st 2017 to January 1st 2018. I will be in the Richmond Hill area and will probably be looking for hashes within 20 miles of that location. --NWoodruff (talk) 15:17, 15 December 2017 (UTC)

Bad luck, I'm out of town for most of that span! Frogman (talk) 22:15, 16 December 2017 (UTC)
