NWO Spirit Quest Question

Postby Flooder » Fri 2007-02-16, 15:58:51

Many of us have used a boilerplate for Spirit Quest caches.

On most of those cache pages is a reference to

http://www.NWOGEO.org/SpiritQuest

I see that page doesn't exist anymore and I wasn't able to find a replacement.

Is there one? Or should we pull the link from our page descriptions.

And yes reports of my death are premature! :)

OK it seems to be redirecting now and adding the .html .

I'll have to find the pages I was clicking on this morning and see what the difference is.

I'm noticing and extra Q in the link on this page http://www.nwogeo.org/SpiritQuest.html Click on the link on the page and you will see the extra Q in the address bar.

Thanks Flooder and Dubbin! Found the error and a couple more too!

Actually if people had copied the correct block as indicated, they would not have had the problem. The double "Q" existed only in the sample and not the part to be copied.

Another error was the misspelling of "Northwest" and the capitalization of "NWOGEO". Some time ago our group settled on "NWOGEO" rather than "NWOGeo" as I tended to use a lot. Some artifacts still remain of "NWOGeo" and get found every once in a while. :)

I do not know why Flooder had the redirection problem. That method is necessary to allow direct access to our SQ page within our system using the simplest link. A longer link would be necessary to avoid the redirection page.

I've fixed the errors, and cleaned up rest of the page text a little too. I also swapped the part to be copied with the sample text so that people would be less likely to copy the wrong block.

Since I am often blind to my own errors, please let me know if you spot any new or old errors!

Since the boiler plate message has changed a little too, I would also encourage everyone to use the new version.

Thanks again!
