Candidates,
Is the WGA Banner displayed on the geocaches you have placed? If so, why? If not, why not?

Yes, I would have to say that I do have the banner on my cache pages (now I have to check to be sure).

I believe that it is a great way to display our organization to those who have not heard of the WGA. To see that the cache owner has some affiliation with more than GC.com shows a bit more commitment to the hobby than just tossing something out in nature with little or no write-up.

Yes, on the ones I had a hand in placing. The adopted caches, I have not though I debate that decision with myself every now and then.

I put it on my caches because I like the people here and want to steer other people in this direction.

You know I would actually have to check but I know that the newer caches I have placed have the "NEW" banner on them. Some of my older caches probably still have the old banner as I didn't get around to updating them. So I guess the short answer is "YES" the banner is on caches I have placed.

Most of my caches have it on there. Because it is free publicity for the WGA.

Most if not all of my caches have the banners on them. It's easy enough to put in and provides exposure for the organization, so win-win for me.
