Langage of reports[edit]

Hello Q-Owl,
great to see another Geohasher out there. I saw your message on my Talk page. No time now to look into it but I will get back to you. Feel free to message me in German if you like, I can read it very well, writing in German is something different ;-) And no, I don't think there are less geohashers these days... only they are spread out over the world more now. -Palmpje (talk) 22:21, 15 November 2013 (EST)

Oops, some time before I replied in more detail. I think your expedition page is fine. The story is more important than design of the page in my opinion. I just like to clean up stuuf like "New Report" on expeditions, try to mend broken links, whatever. Anyway, if you feel that your English is not that good (who am I to judge, I'm Dutch...) most people will understand what you're writing. Don't be shy!
On your other point, I think that geohashing is very much alive after 5 years. It's a silly thing, so only a few people will be able to understand what it is about. NOT scoring points, it's about adventure. Having said that... I'm rather new to geahashing as well and live in a 'hard' graticule. About 50% sea, 35% agricultural land, 10% towns/cities... so most of the time no way to get to the hash. But I really love the idea. Sadly, my wife thinks it's silly. But she does want to join me on nice geocaching walks/bike rides. Palmpje (talk) 15:50, 2 December 2013 (EST)
And I forgot to answer your other question. If you use the template to create the page, your expedition will be listed on the pages you mention. It may take some time as a so called 'bot' is processing this. Palmpje (talk) 05:24, 3 December 2013 (EST)

Re: 2014-12-25 - Christmas ribbon[edit]

Thanks for the Christmas ribbon! But I changed the phrasing just a little, so it parses better in English. Feel free to use if you want. -- OtherJack (talk) 22:44, 3 January 2015 (EST)

Greetings! - Mystrsyko - Most active users page[edit]

Greetings Q-Owl! Thank you for your comment on the Most active users page. It makes me happy to know other geohashers like the work I'm putting into that page.
On a side note, I just realised that both of us had our first geohash adventures on the same day! -- Mystrsyko (talk) 17:10, 16 January 2015 (EST)

And Greetings to you! Yes I like that page. Let's see how many hashes I will visit this year. ...
First geohash adventures on the same day :-))

2015-01-28_49_8 - hashing in France 49/8[edit]

Another chance to hash in France tomorrow. It's a little bit hard for me to get there, but if you'll come, I'll do my very best to meet you. DODO (talk)

May be I'll take a day off, if my chef allows it. Do you want to be picked up in the morning? --Q-Owl (talk) 13:21, 27 January 2015 (EST)

Drei_aus_Korb Re: Welcome! How did you discover geohashing? :-)[edit]

Hi Q-Owl,

"Drei aus Korb" (my daughter, my wife and myself)are a geocaching team since summer 2015. Usually we cache together but as the spare time we share is limited I began to look for similar games. More about my "research" is to be found on Even it isn't that easy to get the right hash the right time I like geohashing a lot. It's all about getting somewhere by any means, no statistics, no race for FTF (First to find), no scoring or else.

So, das war mal das Wichtigste in der hiesigen Amtssprache. Ich stelle leider immer wieder fest, dass mein Englisch doch einigermaßen eingerostet ist. Daher schreibe ich meine Expeditionen hauptsächlich (noch) in deutsch mit einer kleinen englischen Zusammenfassung. Und Du bist ja aus Mannheim: da sind wir für hiesige Verhältnisse ja fast Nachbarn (Korb liegt bei Waiblingen unweit von Stuttgart).

Das mit dem Wiki habe noch nicht so ganz im Griff, ich hoffe die Form der Antwort passt so. Ganz blicke ich auch noch nicht durch wie das mit dem Veröffentlichung der Expeditionen funktioniert. Normalerweise sende ich mit dem Geohash Droid" vom Smartphone ein Bild, auf wundersame Weise scheint das dann auch irgendwie an der richtigen Stelle zu erscheinen, dann versuche ich mit Copy&Paste "die Form zu wahren". Vielleicht kannst Du mich erleuchten: sorgt nun jeder für sich dafür, dass man in der Gallerie landet oder wer kann/darf was? Heute hatt ich so meine Probleme weil auch ausser mir noch niemand eine Expedition gepostet hatte.

Schöne Grüße aus dem Remstal, Holger von Drei aus Korb --Drei_aus_Korb (talk) 27 April 2016
