I am new to Geocaching. I just found out about this group through a link on Geocaching.com. Although it sounds like MnGCA is new, it still sounds like a very cool group to be a part of, but alas, you have no Membership information posted on your website. Do you want any new members? If so, I would suggest posting some info about joining your group.

Looks like it may be time to start implementing some sort of control/confirmation scheme on membership here. Crying or Very sad

Now you know my secret to getting 400 finds in five months while being full time employed. Laughing

It's come to that. I've instituted Admin Activation. From now on new members of the forum will have to be validated by one of the admins. This is a common way to handle these sorts of problems.

The majority of last night's new posters came from the same IP address - also the IP of another member here who I won't name publicly. It seems someone wanted attention.

you too, king? we're happy for ya!

or perhaps i should say, "drink up, buttercup."

note to towlebooth, the phrase "drink up, buttercup" probably hails from some movie or television show. i don't know, but i have a friend who used to say it in college, usually at a party where we were playing drinking games. the comment is not intended to be a personal attack, something you seem to have a hard time discerning. thank you for your understanding.

OK, I think it's time you two pack this up and take it somewhere else where the bystanders are expecting it

Either that or ask towlebooth to open an asbestos lined forum for the both of you to play in....

sorry lance, i don't follow. i said i'm looking forward to indulging on attention, to which the king seemed to agree with, as he seconded my motion. i thanked him for his show of support. there ya have it.

what are we taking elsewhere? are you suggesting the king's response was less than innocent?

btw, i got a kick out of your "expecting it" link.

I said my piece. I put down my $.02.

I'm not going to be paying any more attention to the witty repartee between the two of you.

contrary to popular belief, there's little repartee between us.
