If souvenirs are something of interest, please consider voting for my proposal to create souvenirs for Canada.

I've noticed that quite a few people are leaving comments, but not voting. It's the votes that get looked at.

Ensure that you are click on the VOTE box on the left hand side, just under our vote count. You can choose between 1, 2, or 3 votes each time. Each member gets 10 votes overall for any of these feedback items.

If you think you've already voted, yet your avatar has a blank square in the bottom left corner of your post, then your vote wasn't counted. You may want to try again.

I can't believe we don't have as many votes as Poland or the Czech Republic! I know it's not really a competition, but you'd think with the number of Canadian cachers, and our proximity to the US, we'd have more votes. As of 12:30 this afternoon, these are the top 10 vote getters: (You can see some have justifiably high votes, but I'm baffled at a megaevent having more votes than an entire country).

894 votes - Souvenir for finding Mingo (Oldest Active Cache)
655 votes - European Countries
435 votes - I would like propose the Delft Geocaching Paradise region for a souvenir.
400 votes - E.T. Series in Nevada
342 votes - Polish states souvenirs
309 votes - 5/5 Souvenir
301 votes - Mega Event Catalunya 2010 (GC20HXJ)
287 votes - 14 Czech states souvenirs
277 votes - Canadian Provinces and Territories
259 votes - Austria

As was mentioned - as a Premium Member you get 10 votes and if one of categories that you voted for gets disallowed, you get your vote back. And I think if one of the categories gets approved for a souvenir, you also get your vote back to use again.

Got the same email. SURELY it must be a direct result of the several votes I threw in that direction yesterday after reading this topic Razz

It is way nicer than the US State ones. Definitely worth waiting for.

A tip in case anyone hasn't noticed it yet; if you click on the souvenir it brings up a page with art work and a write-up about that province or state.
