I suppose if there were some very unique categories with fantastic locations - it might may an interesting tool when vacationing - for non cachers at least. I really don't expect to many new premium members just because of this but I probably would have made the same assessment when geocaching.com went online.

The location of 30 McDonald's is not that useful (and MapSource already loads those into my gpsr), but WiFi locations is something that could be useful. I suppose once WiFi providers get on board and pay groundspeak to load their entire location list...that would be handy - although that information is also already available at other places.
If I made it my life mission to log a visit at every listed McDonalds...I would become very fat indeed. Caching is better exercise.
There is a benchmarks category but that is overlap with the caching site. I also noticed a Fishing location category - but who in their right mind would list their favorite fishing spot. Such things are best kept close to the vest.

I think I have Five Waymarks and have visited another Sixteen. Check out these WayMarks:
On the positive side:
- Waymarking takes you to places that you might not have ever known were right in you backyard, or a historical location you didn't know existed.
- It allows you to list sites that you could never place a cache at, or even allows you to have a waymark in the same place as someone elses cache.
- Some people have taken advantage of the whole thing.
- Listing every building along every street in town
- Listing mutiple McDonalds and Pizza Huts.
- WM's are devided into catagories and you have to place your WM's in catagories and sometimes the catagory "owners" can reject your WM becasue it doesn't "fit"

Back in 2011 I logged a couple of waymarks. Late last year I looked at my waymarking profile and it showed that I didn't have any waymarks. I just tried to post 5 waymarks just now and the total still shows that I don't have any waymarks. Any one else having trouble? Is there an additional step after posting???

I have 'found' a few waymarks and it doesn't show up in my stats anywhere, with the exception of the badges via GSAK. AND, this can only be completed by loading them and marking as found. The waymarks do not pull over as an part of the .gpx and/or do the found logs.
They do show as found in the waymarking site, tho.
