Geocaching Poll Results

The poll results are back. Sixty-one people participated (Thank You).

Most poll participants like:
1,000 Cache Pocket Queries.
Being Able to Run My Finds Every Three Days Instead of Seven.
Voting for Favorites.
Downloading Pocket Queries Instead of Receiving E-mail Attachments.
The New Stats Page.

Poll participants weren't so excited about:
The Beta Map.
The New Look of the Forums.

While 1,000 cache pocket queries carried the highest percentage of positive responses, the new favorites system gathered the most support (28%) as the new feature most liked. Interestingly, 5% of the responses also marked the favorites system as the new feature least liked.

There were no real negative results. The response to souvenirs seems to be indifferent at the moment. The forums have a base of geocachers who don't use them which was reflected by one quarter of all the responses. The Beta Map was rated positively by only 53% of the responses, but looks like it could be a big winner if a cacher's finds could be filtered.

This was fun. It certainly wasn't scientific. I enjoyed stopping back to see the voting progress. Again, thanks to all who participated.
