Get in the Ring, Round 2: New Opencaching.com Poll

December 19, 2010

It’s been a month since kjwx’s ‘Get in the Ring’ poll on the (then) proposed Opencaching.com website. Since that time the site has released a beta version and now boasts over 5000 caches. A number of bugs in the first few days seem to be ironed out a little and there has been much debate over who is using the site and especially who is importing their geocaching.com caches.

kjwx’s poll had a huge response (272 responses) and the results were very interesting. But now things have moved on I thought it was time for a new poll…

In the Get in the Ring poll whopping 48.98% of respondents said they would join opencaching.com, though 31.17% of the respondents said only if it was free. Now that the site is live…

52.63% suggested they would retain their Geocaching.com membership and use both listing services. Which leads me to ask…

 

 

Opie

Signal the Frog

Both sites have cool cartoon mascots; Geocaching.com have Signal the Frog and Opencaching.com have Opie. Which do you prefer?

 

Opencaching.com has a simple and easy way to upload your existing Geocaching.com caches.

Opencaching.com doesn’t have any reviewers and some have expressed concern over what this means for the integrity of Geocaching.

91.25% of the Get in the Ring survey respondents were Garmin users.
