Any one else been awarded a geo souvenir and not know why? Anyone had their souvenir disappear ? I got awarded Maryland and I don't have a clue why. Tonight I tried to look at it to find out and it's gone !:confused:

I had one of those and it is gone now too. I actually wrote Groundspeak to ask about it and was told there was a lot going on and to be patient - it would all come around.

Guess we just wait and be patient and see what we get. They are just a bene anyway.

Cache on - cache happy!

I have a 10/10/10 souvenir and a Pennsylvania souvenir. The 10/10/10 souvenir I know is because I got a cache on that day and they were trying to set the record. I am not sure why I have the PA souvenir although I do have a find in that state.

I just read more on it and it says if you find a cache within a certain zone you may be awarded a souvenir. Perhaps that is why I have the PA souvenir. That is some luck considering I have 1 find there.

I think everyone got Delaware by mistake. They will be coming on and off while they get them straightened out.

Currently I have 10/10/10, Delaware State, Pennsylvania State, and New Jersey State. And earned them all. :p

Personally I don't know the the hoopla about them is, and find it even more disturbing people are finding ways to cheat to get them. It may be fixed now, but people were logging finds on applicable caches to get the souvenir and then removing the log. Sheesh! :(:(:(

I think it's just like achievement scores on xbox. They seem to motivate some folks to play more, but a lot play just to get more "chieves", not for the original experience of playing the game just to play the game. It all just improves my total experience, sort of like whipped cream on my coollatta!

I had 6, then 7, now I have 9. I did earn them all so that's fine. The state ones are coming in retroactive I guess. Most I got out in Seattle.

I just got an e-mail about Virginia. Don't recall other e-mails beside 10-10-10. I have a lot of states and have 9 souvenirs so far.

I'd rather just look at the map on my profile.

They said they'd be coming retroactively. I got VA and NY tonight.

From what I heard, as they create the State or other souvenirs any one that would have earned one will be given one retroactively if they have logged a cache in that state. I do not believe Maine has been created yet.

Reading the info on souvenirs:
Souvenirs are virtual pieces of art that you can discover and display on your profile page. They are associated with a particular location and may also be bound by time. There are two ways to discover a souvenir. The first is to log a geocache within the souvenir zone. For instance, if there were a souvenir for Hollywood, CA and you logged a geocache in Hollywood, you would be awarded the souvenir. The second is to search for a geocache using the Geocaching Application for iPhone (http://www.geocaching.com/iphone/default.aspx) or Android (http://www.geocaching.com/android/default.aspx) when you are within the souvenir zone. Text on your profile page will indicate whether the souvenir was discovered by logging or through an application.
If there is a time parameter to the souvenir, as there will be with those discovered at Mega-Events, the souvenir zone will expire at the end of the period. You can still obtain the souvenir by logging your attendance online.
If you have previously logged a cache in a souvenir zone, the souvenir will be added to your profile at a later date.
We hope that you enjoy discovering these unique pieces of art!

Yeah - I just got NY, too. I checked and see that I now have 11 souvenirs, but I don't remember getting notification on any other than VA and NH.

Probably the most pointless, stupid, ill-advised gimmick that Groundspeak has come up with. There are far greater issues and tools for their website they should be investing their time in, and not this drivel.

The Lackey's seem to be having a good time coming up with these. They are very talented. I like the little bit of info that goes with them.

Tell us how you really feel, Chadd. :D

They certainly aren't what I go caching for either.
