    Here is a simple and fun way to track all of us who geocache on the site. Geocaching.com generates "badges" which display your current stats and provides a link to your profile when you click on the badge (the link can be edited out if you want to stay private). It takes a few custom steps to get it to read/appear inside the forum... I will try to help you through the code.

    Steps:
    1. Sign-in to your geocaching.com account
    2. Click "Your Profile" in the upper-right corner (typically under your avatar)
    3. Scroll down the page and find "View Your Stat Bar" which is under "Account Options" and click that link.
    4. Edit the bar as you would like...
    5. Open a new window/tab in your browser and begin a post in this thread
    6. From the geocaching site, find the words 'img src' in the code and copy everything inside the following quotation marks. It should look something like this "http://img.geocaching.com/stats/img.aspx?txt=BushcraftUSA+Bar&uid=0ba14775-d2b8-4bda-9902-a8fd49281439&bg=1"
    7. One you have that copied, come to this thread and click the "Insert Image" button (looks like mountains) and paste the link that you just copied into the popup box.
    8. Go back to the geocaching.com site, find 'a href' in the code and copy everything in the quotations that follow it. It should look something like this "http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=0ba14775-d2b8-4bda-9902-a8fd49281439"
    9. Come back to your post on BCUSA, highlight (do not copy!) the image code in the post and click on the link button (looks like the earth and a link).
    10. Paste the copied 'a href' link into the popup box
    11. All done!

    NOTE - Skip Steps 8-11 if you want your profile to not be linked

    Should look something like this:

    Well, I did it, it won't display my Profile. I noticed that with most others, too.

    If you are having problems with it working as desired... fire me a PM with the problem and a pasting of the code (toss a couple of spaces in the middle of it to prevent it from working/parsing)

    I'm getting dizzy, and confused. I've received updates via email to this thread, but when I revisit here, the post has been deleted? Maybe? I'm not sure.....

    Thanks, I said I can't get it to post. I have not done much lately. I was lucky enough to find myself in Japan and found a few there. That was cool.
    Now my 12 year old son has is own account and the new geocaching merit badge.

    I cheated! When the notice of your original post came through in email, it parsed the links perfectly. I just copied from my email notice and put them here. Hope you don't mind. Way to go on the finds!

    Madfaxman!

    As a public service, I'm going to post this Badge on behalf of Madfaxman.
    When he gets his links to behave and upload, I'll delete this post.
