Congratulations to all for their hard work and creative thinking on these hides. 

I really appreciate the effort you all put into making this such a cool game/hobby/obsession.

Cheers,

Just want to tell everyone thanks for voting on the BBES as most challenging.  I went out a few weeks ago and everything is still in place so if your wanting a challenge, head to Brazos Bend State Park - GC1MMNK .  Thanks - CachinSpree

Someone voted for the BBES?  :tickedoff:  CachinSpree doesn't deserve it.  He is a troll that looks like a plumber crawling around under your kitchen sink. :knuppel2:  He doesn't know what he is doing...I mean, you go to the hole in the tree and the cache isn't there.  ;D  Who in the world even suggested that this series be nominated?

Oh....never mind..... :-\

Are there links to banners to put on the cache pages for winners and nominees?

Jason, can you answer this?

Also, make sure everyone is bookmarking their favorite caches during the year so we can have a good list for the next awards!!

speaking of graphics... is there a "placed by a HGCS member" graphic?

By the way Jason, I think the old award graphics are very very professional looking.  Is that a hobby for you or are you a pro?

Copying and pasting the code below into your cache listing makes a nice HGCS promo.

Man.. I wish... I struggle so hard with making graphics. I use Inkscape to make those graphics then convert them into gifs/pngs with Paint.Net. I've watched a couple of youtube tutorials on Inkscape and read a few articles.. but my mind just can't grasp this points and nodes concept.

I like Inkscape frankly because it's free and good... but it's vector so I don't have to worry about the size of the graphic. I choose the size in pixels when I export. This way I don't loose any quality when resizing.

Here is the link to the thread with the logo
