Anyone know the launch dates for each of the OC Network sites.
From one of Garmin OX site admin TrailTech...
We choose a name that reflected our main philosophy behind building the site. Obviously, we picked the name well before the site publicly launched. At that time we picked the name, OpenCaching.us did not exist. The only site using the phrase opencaching, that I remember being aware of at the time we picked the name, was opencaching.de. That site seemed very localized and it seemed that ".de" was very much part of its identity.original thread at oc.com
Either they did a horrible job of doing their homework, or they're full of it. I recall hearing about how they did try to have a discussion with .de folks before launch, but had wanted them to sign a non-disclosure agreement beforehand. I'd think they would have come up with the other sites or at least found the oc.eu page with the links for each national site.
