Re: [gpsstash] Name for new game


I guess part of what the game will actually be about will make a difference,
but how about a play off of the GPS name?

G.P.S - Global Position Search
- Geographic Place Seeking (yuck)

Play off the GeoCaching name (of course this might lead to confusion, or
might help its visibility... who knows):

GeoSearch
GeoHunt

Or come up with something that sounds more natural (nature friendly, since
that seems to be one of the goals):

Natural Location Hunter (NLH)
eNaturalist Seekers

Ok, enough for now... Not sure I really care for any of these, but maybe it
will stir something in someone else.

Scout,

Thanks for the message, I too am determined to create a new GPS game
that doesn't rely on physical caches. Buxley is ready to do it too. I
will be starting a New GPS Game developers yahoogroup soon. Trying to
think up a good name at this time. Any Thoughts?

Dave...
