Now this is where the advantage lies of reading the Forums:
I am still a newbie, 46 finds, and I have learned quite a lot by just reading the forums.
For an example: I placed 3 caches to date. I was happy when all 3 of them were visited within an hour after listing and the feedback on the logs were positive. However, it was only after my first FTF when I received a mail from Danie Viljoen congratulating me on my FTF that I realised that its just common sense and plain good manners to congratulate a person on a FTF. So, my aplogies to the FTF's on my caches.
Writing longer logs is now my new years resolution.
