  1. Sounds like an opportunity for a life lesson. Starting by deleting his Found it. And not by assuming he had the best of intentions. Far from it.
  2. After you click Remove there's another Are you sure? - "Yes" button. It's not exactly in your face. I still miss it now and then.
  3. Retrieving and Grabbing a bug from a cache does the some thing. Formally - you would Retrieve a bug from a cache and you would Grab a bug when it is in the hands of another cacher.
  4. Feel free to pick up and move as many travel bugs as you can handle. It doesn't matter if that's two or twenty. Best thing you can do is take pictures, tell stories, and have fun. .10 miles in the wrong direction is far better than a Discover "just so I know it's still there" (What a crock) The whole only take one if you leave one is a flat-out deception. You have my permission to pick up my bug regardless of what anyone else says.
  5. Horsecrap. You're lazy. As I mentioned (and posted screencaps), it IS too complicated to add photos from a mobile device...at least in the sense that mobile devices are SUPPOSED TO BE CONVENIENT. It's not possible from the app itself, which means either going to a computer to complete the upload or trying to navigate the website (which is not at all mobile device friendly) from a tiny screen. I must have missed your Fix the mobile apps so we can post TB photos easier thread. bd I was answering the OPs question about why folks don't generally add photos to TB logs. None of the apps I've used offer the feature and I'm not inclined to pursue it. The GC app is inferior in many ways to other apps, both API and non-API...and this is one of them. I'd be more likely to create a "Ways in which the GC app is inferior" thread. I was answering the OP as well and you decided to complain about your apps. Not sure why I should care.

  7. Reminds me of a comedian talking about taking a puddle-jumper in Alaska. "Sir, how much do you weigh" "What for?" "So we can determine how much fuel we need". "Fill it up. I'll pay!"
  8. Of course, it's never one person being unreasonable. I'm not asking for an arrest, but I will involve law enforcement so there is a history of the situation.
  9. .02 oz/5 grams using my scale. (somewhere in-between) 2 1/4 x 1 1/8. I'll have to look for a metric ruler.
  10. Ah, the ol' "It's the community that decides the listing policy" answer. Submit it. Let your reviewer decide.
  11. With the type of threat the OP mentioned I would immediately contact Law Enforcement to be the mediator. Right or wrong, confrontation is a red flag. I would never suggest the next cacher can deal with it better than the authorities.
  12. Recently saw an event at a mall that security kicked them out. Should they get credit for attending? Sure why not. The location has previously took action against caches placed there, but the reviewer published a few new caches recently and I'm sure if the event owner had asked for permission they probably would have been denied. But what the hey, ya know? Let's CELEBRATE August 2013 Souvenir Days Together
  13. That's cool. Sometimes there's other ways of contacting a cacher than just using email. If they cache with others, or ask cachers in their home area. I found a GPS by a cache. I took down the name of the cacher and tracked him down by the local reviewer who lived in the area. Exactly.
  14. Okay, give it a try but maybe cut down on the Redbull.
  15. That's cool. Sometimes there's other ways of contacting a cacher than just using email.
  16. Months? I would give it a week after sending the email. If they don't respond then activate it or pass it on. I would sit on it until I heard back from the cacher who is clearly active. No rush to move it. Clearly if they left it by accident they would have responded within a few days to a week, especially a active veteran cacher. After a month the message would be buried and the cacher would have forgotten about it. Unless they left it intentionally for someone to keep and doesn't feel the need to respond. You know nothing of the circumstances. Just keep it is your plan. I'd be real interested if Dogmeat101 could provide cache details. It might help in finding the owner.
  17. Meanwhile, back to not over doing it.
  18. Well, there would have been a couple other times but I didn't want to over do it.
  19. Months? I would give it a week after sending the email. If they don't respond then activate it or pass it on. I would sit on it until I heard back from the cacher who is clearly active. No rush to move it. Agreed.
  20. First thought is that you logged a cache twice. gc.com allows that stat.
  21. Wow. That could have been a lot worse in so many ways. Fortunately it was the movie version of poetic justice.
  22. This belongs in the TB forum.
  23. I think it's called Where's George.
  24. So why didn't they call it the Vista 20?
