Do Favorite Points Matter? in General geocaching topics Posted November 16, 2013 I've got a stash of a couple hundred favorite points. When they first came out, I went back through my finds and favorited several caches. I can't ever see me giving a favorite point to a 35mm stuck in a tree or in a lamppost. My criteria is that the cache be interesting like many of the virtuals, or the container is an ammo can. I believe both of these types of caches take us back to the beginnings of this pastime. To address the OP question regarding the use of favorite points to filter a cache trip on, I don't do that since not everyone shares my viewpoints.
