  1. Well if not Virtuals then at least Webcam caches. I understood that they did not have so many problems and there aren't so much webcams out there. This earlier (container or no container) discussion has lost its power because you can publish cointainerless EarthCaches today.
  2. Please explain how either is easier to check than a sig on a log? Well I was thinking that if there is some kind of mission to the cacher what he/she has to do to log the cache makes it more easier if the CO can check that it is correct without visiting the actual place. If the log sheet disappears, how do you check the earlier logs? I've been playing a while and have yet to see a log sheet disappear. Have you seen this happening? - Swapped out for a new one maybe... Virtuals got quite a few fake loggers over the years. Google searches will often give you all the information you need for virtuals (and some earth caches) without ever visiting the site. A pic with the cacher at the site is the only way to be reasonably sure the cacher was indeed there. I wouldn't want virtuals to return if the only reason was it was easier to maintain. I have seen this happening but usually it means that the whole container is muggled. + The reason I want virtuals back aren't either that they're easier to maintain. They are good variation alongside the other cache types.

  4. I believe in some kind of solution. All the other cache types are having problems also. But one thing is still confusing me: Why the webcam caches were actually banned? The logging caused problems or what? Still I think that Virts and Webs are more easier to check that the cacher has actually found the cache. Log sheet can dissappear suddenly.
  5. When I started geocaching in 2010 I was learning something new all the time. Different cache types --> cool! When I heard about webcam caches, virtual caches and locationless caches I thought "Why there isn't any near my house?" Then this newbie geocacher got his first dissappointment: no more can be done. Later my opinion about the locationless caches changed. I agree that they actually aren't geocaches. Webcam and Virtuals are cool cache types as the caches with containers. I don't see any reason why can't a geocache be a geocache without a container? If EarthCaches are allowed too this container argument has lost its power. When the virtual caches were grandfathered I understand that there was some kind of problems out there but so the traditional caches are having problems too. Containers are lost, somebody can cheat in logging (friend logs a cache for him/her), the cache is actually a micro in a traffic sign (Wow-factor)... So should we grandfather traditional caches too? When I started reading these conversations about bringing back grandfathered caches I see that people are worried about the logging. I say that if I log every geocache in the world now most of the logs are not going to be deleted. It would be my own shame. The idea of geocaching is to entertain ourselves by getting some finds and see places which wouldn't have been seen without a cache. This should not be a competition! If someone really gets satisfaction by cheating so be it! I don't see the funny side on it... For example think about a webcam cache. "How a great idea!" - Thinks someone who has started the geocaching. Some people are against the bring back grandfathered cache types operation, some people are dreaming to get them back. As I said the geocaching is a hobby where you should get some entertaiment so if some people are against it why should we ban the other cachers' joy? If you don't like them, don't log them. Easy and simple to do! This game should not be forcing anyone. If these cache types mean so much to someone, why we have to spoil the joy? The Waymarking is not so popular and it is not the same (Waymark published 2 years ago --> Last visited: never). People are interested in geocaching. I say that I would have never experienced the EarthCaches if they would not have been brought back. I think that these conversations should be taken seriously. Geocachers are keeping this hobby alive and we should be listened. For now I am a premium member but I figured out that I don't actually need premium membership it is more like support for this awesome hobby. So one idea could be that Groundspeak allows the Virtuals and Webcams for the premium members. Let's make this game even more awesome!
  6. I got an idea: Groundspeak could allow Virtual and Webcam caches for Premium Members and earn some money while the "non-premiums" Virtual Cachers would buy their membership. I'm pretty sure that problems with Virtual and Webcam caches can be solved and as someone already noticed: the caches with containers are having problems too. By allowing EarthCaches the "non-container cache ain't a cache" is not a good argument anymore. Waymarking isn't so popular and the website is confusing and a bit messy. Geocacher who started caching too late.
