    Speaking of the money end of things, how many members here have donated in the past year and how many and who has given at the two new higher categories? My thought is consistent with the old maxim "You get what you pay for" and it surely appears the Alaska site is well organized. And for what it's worth, they jumped through the IRS hoops to acquire 501(C)3 status which means any payment to their site is tax deductible, not a huge issue but certainly not a bad thing for folks who give to support a sport like geocaching. So their site is technically inferior, do I have that right Cano, and they have to donate 20 tax qualified dollars to vote. Anybody see anything they liked?

    Default Maine...caching the way it should be

    While I can appreciate another state's geocaching website, and Alaska has done a fine job. Why would we want to copy their website, or try to run this one like Alaska's?

    Mainer's have always been independent......

    I wasn't suggesting we "copy it", just look at what they offer and see if there's something we could learn about who others are doing it. I don't think we'd be giving up our independence in doing so. I bet the higher ups at Home Depot look at what Lowe's is doing and vice versa. It's how we "learn" and improve.

    I've worked at both companies. Might not wanna use them as examples. They've both advanced in the wrong direction more than once. lol
