Cachetur.no is funded by a minority of our users, and that’s why we can manage without ads or membership fees.

We are now trying to run a information campaign, which will last one week from midnight March 1st (Central European Time). All users will see a information banner. Users that have contributed financially, will see a “thank you”-message, while all other users will see information about how we are funded.

We don’t want ads or membership fees

To be able to deliver our services for free, and free of ads, is one of our main goals. We want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to use our services.

We can’t do that without continued support from our users (or from geocaching associations, organizations etc).

It’s no crisis, yet

Cachetur.no has not run out of money yet, and we don’t expect any issues in the near future either. But it’s to avoid potential problems we’re running campaigns like this.

We understand that the banner might be annoying, and that’s why we’ve tried to make it as small as possible. And it won’t stick around forever 🙂

We are run by volunteers

Cachetur.no is run entirely by volunteers. I, thomfre, does all the development and much of the user support. A team of dedicated ambassadors help me with user support, translations, idea bouncing, testing, trip template and rv site moderation and event time registration. Yes, we manually read through 20-100 events every single day, and add start and end time – so we can show that  information to you. We are the only site that does this, not even geocaching.com have this.

And all of us do this without any form for payment. Every single krone that’s donated to cachetur.no, goes to cachetur.no.
