      The upgrade and new version of the forum software did away with a separate username and display name. Some of you may be logging in with a username but your Display Name is different. So if you are one of these users and have trouble logging in use your email address you registered with or your Display Name. If you still have trouble use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forum with your User or Display name and I will try and get you squared away. -Team Four Paw

Texas A&M Health Study

151 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Want another way to earn a coin? Texas A&M Health is conducting a study of geocachers to see how often they cache and if it is a good way to exercise, advantages of metal and physical health are examined as well. Must participate in the study for a whole year in order to receive the coin.

Seemed interesting so I am posting on HGCS. Thanks to MuddyWaterGirl aka Ruthie Ames for bringing the study to light on facebook..

Here is the link!!

OK, I signed up. They say you can quit at any time or not answer any questions you don't care to. The survey was just general physical activity questions and only took me 5 minutes or so to answer online. Easy peasy!

Yep.  I was going to reply that they might want to bcc the email addresses in the future.  I didn't know my email was going to be shared with everyone in the study and I'm not sure anyone else did either.

I guess I am not in the study any more.  I got an e-mail this morning claiming they wanted to recall the message I received yesterday.  Anybody else get that message?

Little late for this. 

 

Center for Community Health Development would like to recall the message, "Geocaching for Exercise and Activity Research Study".

I guess that was after I sent the reply about them sharing everyone's email address with everyone in the study.  I've never seen the recall thing before -- if an email hasn't been downloaded can it be recalled?  I would think once it's in your inbox, even using webmail, it's a done deal.

I also sent an email about sending out all the email addresses and I got the same reply saying they would like me to recall my email.  Oh well.  Too bad.

I have seen people "recall" emails before.  I don't think it changes anything (like deleting the message from someone's inbox queue if they haven't checked their email), but it is a way of saying "oops, there was a problem with that message".
