I would love to know what that is all about!

Did they not give credit to Mina's picture that they used for Mingo's birthday announcement?

I know I don't have the longest streak
........ but do I have the longest slump?

Oh no, that we are happy about!

It has to do with people snatching our images from our NASCAR Challenge cache page, and using them on their version with asking our permission first.

That's why we kinda added a watermark on the images now.

Got it..... Still, it would have been nice if they mentioned Mina in their write up. Oh well.... We all know and love her!

You will probably dislike me for this but what's the big deal? Isn't NASCAR copyrighted? What about all the images? It's a game..........if it becomes a big deal then maybe you need to find something less stressful to play.......Just my opinion.

This topic is simply posting geocaching.com's policy on image use and rights.

No particulars of this case have been mentioned.

If this comment is constructive criticism from our Steering Committee on a subject they know nothing about, then thank you for it. Nice to see support of gc.com policies and NWOGEO members are a top priority to our elected/appointed leadership.

Please, anyone, feel free to contact us by any means you wish if you are so motivated on this subject.

I QUIT the steering committee quite some time ago mainly because of b**ching. I still get sick of people complaining about a GAME we choose to play. They did this, they didn't do that.....Who really cares???
You did the work on getting that picture together I understand that but copyright? REALLY???
give me a break!

Anyone who is interested is free to use the term "cheech honors", copyright is no longer being enforced.

Mina wants you all to know use of her likeness, and related use of her catch-phrase "Woof!" can contact her legal representative, mailed to their Elmore area offices.
