Web site by BaSHful

Welcome to the official Church Micro web site. Here you should be able to find out everything there is to know about this magnificent series. Please contact me (BaSHful) if you think there is something I've not mentioned or you have a suggestion for how the web site might be enhanced and I will do my best to accomodate you. The site consists of these following sections.

Statistics

The main page contains finder and owner ranking tables plus information about placed caches and a selection of top ten tables. The page is updated approximately weekly. There are also statistics produced for each "Church Micro Day" (see below).

Statistics Notes

Information on how the statistics are produced and what to do if you think there's an issue that needs resolving.

Awards

This is my award:-

This section tells you how to display your own award and about the variations possible.

The data file that drives the awards may be viewed here.

There is also a user script, developed by James Inge, also a GeoCacher, to automatically display the award on Geocaching.com. It will display your own badge in the stats bar section of your Profile page (geocaching.com/my/) and other people's badges under the photos on their profile pages (unless they were already on the page). On the listing pages for Church Micro caches, it will show both your badge and the hider's. It also shows basic find statistics on the Your Friends page (geocaching.com/my/myfriends.aspx). Clicking on the badge will take you to the main Church Micro Series statistics page. Download/install. If you need help try the Userscript Beginners HOWTO page.

Place your own

Anyone is welcome to add to the series. This page contains all the information you need to do this.

Challenges

It was only a matter of time before someone started setting challenges based on Church Micros and this page lists all the ones we know about. Please let me know if I've missed any.

History

A list of significant dates. Feedback particularly welcome on how this section could be improved.

Trackables

A list of trackables associated with the Church Micro series. Very much a work in progress. Please let me know of any that need adding.

Church Micro Day

Celebrating the anniversaries of the publication of the first Church Micro.

Facebook

Yes, we have our very own facebook page - "A group for all Geocachers with a particular interest and love for Church Micros.".

Acknowledgements

This series would not be what it is today without the bookmark lists (see below) meticulously maintained by Andy33.

The statistics page would not be as rich without the sterling work put in by Sean of the Flookfinders.

The award is much enhanced thanks to the beautiful artwork of Lorna Mulligan.

Sister series

Ireland

Church Micro IE 1 - St. Pius X, Templeogue was published on 27th November July 2010 though it didn't last long, being archived on 30th July 2011 and immediately replaced with the much more durable Church Micro IE 1 - St. Pius X, Templeogue {Redux}. The Irish series is managed by THE_Chris.

As of June 2015 it does not have its own web page, nor any bookmark list, though I did find this GeoCaching Ireland forum thread.
