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

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…

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

(polls)

Opie

Signal

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

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

(polls)

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

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