'Z' Welcome Signs
 allows ratings
Welcome signs of towns and cities anywhere in the world that begin with the letter Z.
Expanded Description:
This is one of the early experimental categories in waymarking, more or less a random oddity dedicated to the letter Z.

Find a welcome sign for a city, town, or village whose name begins with the letter, Z. Other geo-political divisions such as counties, states, provinces, etc. will also be acceptable.

Instructions for Posting a 'Z' Welcome Signs Waymark:
1). Personally record the geographic coordinates at the actually location of the sign. (Not from a distant viewing location).

2). Submit at least TWO photos of the welcome sign. One must be a clear, readable close-up view, and another an overview showing the sign and its surroundings. Blurred, distorted, night only images will NOT be accepted. Neither GPSr or posed people should be included in the photo.

3). Write a brief description of the town, especially try to find out the history of the "Z" name. Every place has a story to tell.

WAYMARK NAME: The waymark MUST use this name format: Ztown - State or Country. Appropriate designation for each country can be used, such as province, canton, etc.

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. Because of our international scope, we also acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will create the highest level of accessibility globally. All waymarks must have at least a short description in ENGLISH. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks, but one of the languages must be English. We have volunteer translators to help.

Relying on software or internet based translators, such as Babylon and Google Translate, may NOT yield accurate translations that are intelligible. Use these only when there is no alternative. Although we do not expect grammatical perfection, a waymark may be declined if there the English language is not understandable.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Please give the date and description of your visit. Fresh photos and any additional information about the "Z" location are highly desirable.
