I hit 50 caches found on Thursday (in a 3 month period).


So... how do I add my name to the front page Bragging Rights list?

Head out to your cacher page:

http://www.mngca.org/cacher.php

and select the link to add a milestone. If you are not a member, our webmaster can add a milestone for you when he gets a free moment.

For more on these matters see this thread:

Well, I thought that I was an MnGCA member, but apparently I had only registered as a forum user. I will remedy that immediately! Thanks for the info.

I don't know what I might be doing wrong. But when I try going to the link http://www.mngca.org/cacher.php it say's I need to log in even though I'am already logged in. So I try to re-log on and I get a message that say's
"You could not be logged in! Either the username and password do not match or you have not validated your membership!"I had wanted to post my milestone of hitting 300 finds last week. Any help?
Thanks, Al

That's the same thing that I ran into, Al. You apparently, as I was, are only registered as a forum user, not as a member. You can use the same username and password, but check the radio button that says that you want to register as a member.

(corrections to my instructions are more than welcome, if needed)

Knowschad, Thanks for trying to help. I tried your suggestion before and again just now and just won't work. I get this message "The Username you have selected has already been used by another member in our database. Please choose a different Username." Sooo I'm still stuck Sad
Later, Al

For several reasons (the biggest of which was the ease of coding by yours truly) the forum registration is completly seperate from the websiteregistration/membership.

I have to leave right now, but either I or the webmaster (if he has returned from wedded bliss) will look into your issues today or by 7:00 PM tomorrow. Sorry if there is a delay, but I have some holiday plans that I have to get to.

I just left Silent Bob an hour ago. His network connection has been down for 2 or 3 days. So between the wedding and no connection, I don't think that he is aware of the problem. Might be a few days.

I have no issue. I was able to register just fine. Its ScubaAl that is having the problem.

PS: Silent Bob got married this weekend?!? Congratulations to him!

I'm aware of the problem but have no SSH or true web access to repair the problem. I'll get to it tomorrow.

Sorry and thanks for the congrats.
