Serge2:Just for fun, and to encourage others to check it out, can we reserve the first 24 hours for someone who has not been here yet?
Serge2:I won't give it all away, but starting with the original tag post, a certain series of clicks and one copy/paste (no typing) would take you directly to the park on google maps.
ShadyGaga:Part of the fun for me is using visual or text clues and Web research to try to find the >50% of tags that I have no clue about. Without that I could go weeks with no shot at getting a tag when it's not in my neighborhood. I don't think using Google is cheating.
ShadyGaga:I thought I knew where this was, based on Google searches, but I failed to find the tag today.
Sigurd:However, only tag owner is supposed to reveal hints, so others should not post hints of any sorts - including revealing that embedded data are present.
Sigurd:San Diego cyclists now have their own "Tag-o-Rama" game!A tag isn't really an actual tag - it is just a picture of your bike in an interesting or well-known location, perhaps with some hints if you think seekers need it. Members here will figure out where the tag is, and go out to take a picture in the same location, with their own bike in a similar position. The finder is then the new "it", and he gets to place the next tag: Continue ad infinitum!Here's a custom Google Map of a few of the initial tags in the game.For now, check out the rules:#1: If you're "it", find somewhere relatively easy to place a tag - the game is about getting people out on their bikes (see #2), not about Googling: Somewhere scenic, well known or for some reason special or interesting will do. Take a picture (no file or recycled photos, or Google Street View, allowed - again, this is about riding your bike!) of your bike in the tag location. Post on SD BIkecommuter.com (you will need an account with a hosting site such as Photobucket, Picasa or Flickr to host your photo).#2 The first finder (the one who posts a picture of his bike in the correct location) is the new "it", If you are not first (you have been "Bruced"!), post your photo, anyways (see #3).#3: "As "it", you have 48 hours to place a new tag. If you don't, the honor of being "it" transfers to the second finder/poster. It is highly encouraged to post the new tag quickly and in a way that is locationally diverse: In short, if you don't have the time or inclination to place a new tag quickly, don't claim one in the first place. And try to go the extra mile to place the tag somewhere different than the neighborhood you found it in.#4: You need to ride your bicycle to and fro, and include it in your tag photo!#5: To keep the tag moving, pls. limit yourself to the City of San Diego: Even then, placing a tag in San Ysidro or Rancho Bernardo may be funny, but not fun! #5: The location of a claimed tag should not be revealed until a new tag has been posted.#6 (edit): The photo needs to be physically posted to the board - a URL to it is not sufficient for a catch. A new "tag" photo has to have been taken after your "claim" photo - no file photos of any kind allowed!#7: Only tag owner shall provide tag location hints.#8: No whining!Get it? If not, read this thread for how it is done, and then ask here!
Serge2: Sigurd:However, only tag owner is supposed to reveal hints, so others should not post hints of any sorts - including revealing that embedded data are present.Does that apply even after the tag has been found and posted?
#5: The location of a claimed tag should not be revealed until a new tag has been posted.
Old Knotty Buoy:#5: The location of a claimed tag should not be revealed until a new tag has been posted.This way, a second "finder" has a chance to claim the tag if the first finder doesn't post a new tag in 48 hours. The second and subsequent finders should have the same requirements, of knowing or not knowing the tag location, as the first finder.
