Hi Everyone,

I'm a new member at Navicache, but an old fogie at the other site.  I'd like to cross-post my caches on here, with the eventual goal of removing them from the other site altogether.  Is there any special etiquette regarding that?

Also, is there some any policy about logging caches you found in the past that you previously only logged on the other site?  While I'm not one of the number-hungry types I do feel obligated to log some of the caches I've visited that are posted here, just so it doesn't look like I'm a newbie when really I'm experienced.

I'm looking forward to starting geocaching again (after a hiatus) now that I've found a community of people that seem to think the way I do and aren't entirely worried about find numbers.

I believe, and somebody stop me if it ain't so, you are more than welcome to cross list caches here and at the Toad Shack.

The folks that run this site are great to work with and very approachable if you have an idea for a cache that isn't the norm. They will at least hear you out.

As far as back logging caches, I think that is up to the individual cache owners. I wouldn't be insulted if it were my caches.

Welcome to Navicache!

Naw, nobody cares about caches listed at Big Green being cross-posted here. Actually, now that I think of it, there is one person, but he hasn't been heard from in like 2 years.  :tungue2

Back logging finds, again no problem. I know I did it when I first joined here, several months (at least) after I joined the other site. I'm sure you could find where both questions have been asked several times in these forums (mostly in the "general discussion" forum), and see it's pretty much unanimous that both practices are well-accepted.

First I would like to welcome you to navicache.com

As far as cross-posting your caches here that is no problem at all. We have many members that cross-post and some that only post here. As for removing your listings from other sites, that of course would be up to you. I myself did that with the few I have for my own personal reasons at the time. One thing should you choose this route that I would suggest is to make a note in the cache they may still be logged on another site and that you are only retiring the listing on that site. This helps prevent anyone from saying your cache was abandoned and attempting to adopt it on that site.

With regards to logging previous finds that are also listed here, that is quite acceptable and you have the option when entering the log to set the date to the date the find actually took place.

Again welcome

Welcome to Navicache!

Is there an easy way of listing the caches that are listed both here and at gc.com?

Not that I know of. gc.com doesn't cooperate in ways that would make this trivial.
