Question - Who Is This Site For?
« am: 20. Dezember 2010, 15:19:03 »
Obviously, it is primarily for the OpenCaching community admins, but I actually found this link in a public link on OC UK.  Is everyone here an admin / team member for one of the OC sites?

I got a note from CraigRat of Geocaching.AU.  He is interested in coorperation between some of the alternative sites, particularly in GPX file formatting.  Part of his e-mail reads,

Zitat
I was wondering if you (and others in the OC network) have a site/forum that you all communicate thru?

What I wanted to do was try to open up a dialog between all the alternate listing sites to work out how to move things forward insofar as having unified API's/GPX's etc to encourage Application and Website developers to support our way of caching more. (Your non-gc GPX files actually use our format if you look in the file, but that 1.0 format is getting a bit old. We've now got a better 1.1 format but I think we can make it better to fit all sites)

Would it be OK for me to send him an invite to this forum?

Thanks, good news :)

The focus of this forum is to talk about development of geocaching - in particular "the network" (opencaching). Having a common API and data formats for geocaching data access is an important part of the network.

We will create a private subforum for OC site admins and developers, where we can talk about internal things, that have not to be public at that moment.

We can also create a open or closed subforum for third party developers (focused on opencaching-API).

I'd been wondering about that.  Would be a good idea, I'm sure.  Obviously, anyon can search for, find and join here, but I was curious what intent was.

Also, how do members here have thousands of post, but there only seems to be about 200 or posts on the forums?   ???

Even as a registered user You don´t see the whole forum.
For example we (=oc.de Team) have our own sub-forum which is some years old (started on another server) and
has been transferred to this place recently. So all the posting-counters were transferred too.

Thanks.  Again, had a feeling that there was something I wasn't seeing.  Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.

Just thinking...maybe we should have a link to this forum on the OC.eu page, in that case.

 :-[ Oh...I never noticed that was a link.  And it's definitely not identified as being a link to this developer forum.
