Now that we have cluttered the rides and rallies section with scooter tag, don't you think it is time to start a REALLY challenging one?

(No offense to folks overseas but my Polish geography is only slightly worse than my Polish language skills.)

Hey Ritch, J, see the monster that you started?

This could actually work and it would give those of us who don't live in areas where there are current tag games a chance to play. Let's say someone in Iowa posts a picture of a 50's diner, well the first person to post a picture of a similar type diner in their city would win the tag, same could go for murals, sculptures, lakes, etc. What do you guys think?

I was thinking you should have to give the location. The challenge becomes getting there rather than finding the location. No need to limit it to any geography either Just let it flow to wherever scooters can go. It would move slowly but it would move.

For example only:

Royal Gorge Bridge near Cañon City, Colorado

Actually, the Scooter DIVA TAG is a bit different. Same picture, different location

Would now be the time to bring up the idea, floated a while back, that scooter tag have its very own category?

For nationwide tag, I don't think it would work to have to tag the exact location.

What I think will work and lend to a fast moving game is for the person posting the tag to add clarification as to what will constitute a correct "tag". For example, with the Gorge picture you would clarify that to get this tag you must post a picture of a scooter on a bridge or scooter in front of a gorge/mountains, etc. That way everyone wishing to tag the spot will know exactly what to get.

This can definetly work and it will be very enjoyable to see different places all across the country.

I think the idea of a "tag" category is a good idea. What was the opposition?

Forum proliferation. We have tons and tons of forum areas now, far too many. Of course, we have half of what most forums have, but Those People Are On Crack.

I've extremely reluctant to add new forum areas.

Let's get started!
Well everyone, lets get started with nationwide tag...
The Rules:

* To start, someone posts a photo of their scooter with a landmark, the person posting the pic would state what will constitute a correct "tag" e.g. scooter in front of a lake.

* Other participants ride to a similar place in their area and take a photo with THEIR scooter in a similar spot.

* The first person to "tag" the photo by posting their photo with their bike gets to post the next photo for people to find.

Wanna Play?

Opps since you already posted a picture do you want to be "it"? Please designate what would constitute a tag of your picture (scooter on a bridge, etc.) if not, someone else post a pic to get us started.

Come on everyone lets put some miles on our scooters and have some fun!

Ok Jess, you're it. But remember to designate what will constitute a correct "tag" of your picture. A person doesn't have to go to the same exact location, it can be a similar type of location in a different locale. For example with the Ferry, the tag would be to get a picture of your scooter on a ferry...it doesn't matter which ferry.

So Jess, bring on the next tag!

I kind of like the idea of it being the exact location. Really hard tag, and sure to die on the vine. But still, it appeals to me...

The United States is too large to have to tag the exact location. The tag would most definetly die on the vine! Heck even the regional tag games get stalled. The idea is to open the door for people of all regions to play.

So, what is the FINAL word? Does it have to be an exact tag? Those of us in FLORIDA that DO ride scooters will never get to play

I vote for the same set-up, but different location.

I stopped looking as it seemed we got bogged down on the rules and there was no photo for a while. In this case...I'll see if I can get one tomorrow, but it won't be NFL quality football, as I'm not riding to Dallas or Houston for the shot!

The get the tag you do not need to tag an NFL stadium! Any stadium will do ~ College, High School, Professional...whatever, just a football stadium. The one in my tag is Bulldog Stadium at Fresno State.

Lighthouse Question for Nationwide Scooter Tag

Well.....I'm curious.....being someone who lives in a landlocked area, where it would be next to impossible to find a REAL lighthouse to take a picture with my scooter next to....

Do other kinds of lighthouses count? For example - what if you live near a miniature Golf course with a Nautical Theme - and there is a small Lighthouse there - would that count? Or does it have to be a 'real' one?

Miguel

P.S. In Southern Oregon where I live, in a pretty valley nestled between the slopes of the volcanic Cascade mountains and the Siskiyou mountains....there aren't too many lighthouses....hence my question which, I'll admit, is a little on the out-there side....

My vote is that it would count. Part of the fun of the nationwide tag is that it allows some creativity since you don't have to tag the exact same location, but something similar in your area. I say go for it!
