  1. I'd say neither one did anything wrong, the owner can ask anything he wants to... and the finder can be nice and do it or decide to do whatever he wants... On a side note, a funny story that seems to be on topic... There was a recent case in my home area where a cacher placed "tribute" caches to other cachers and asked that the cacher the cache was placed in tribute to was allowed to be the "FTF," well other people went and found the cache and had their logs deleted. Were they the "FTF ?" Some see it as an "award" to be handed out to someone, I see it as a simple fact, you were the first person to go find the cache... The cache owner thought that by deleting the logs of all the finders who found it before the desired finder, that when the desired finder found it he would then be the first to find... hmmm
  2. I see it a lot too, I went through and added a requirement to all my Virtuals and Earthcaches that you needed to post a photo of yourself at the location and the German logs went from several a day to maybe one a week. lol
  3. I've had a lot of fun playing with that over the years, an "easier" way to get it is to go to your profile, put your mouse over the link to see your forum posts but dont click, and then look at the url its pointing to, the end of it is your ID number... Or here in the forums, see my name right over there to the left <----- ? put your mouse over it, its linking to http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showuser=42884 Mine is 42884, so I can do an easy link to me like this : http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=42884 But you can change that number to anything, its fun to play around with.. there are a couple numbers missing.. http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=2 http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=3 or the 100th http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=100 or the 1,000th http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=1000 or http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=10000 or http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?id=1000000 have fun
  4. I love the idea, and I also think they should all be at the posted coordinates.
  5. I see logs like this all the time : http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LU...11-4daa15f31d95 I admit I probably wouldn't do that, but I don't look down on or talk bad about people who play the GAME how they want, I happen to like Dave a lot.
  6. You sure love to bring up Puritans, and heretics in your posts, just to be spiteful. Why don't you ever refer to geocachers who have strong views, as Orthodox cachers? Perhaps the reason is your desire to insult religions other than yours? Which ones don't have strong views? I thought they all did, some have strong view on some subjects, some on others.
  7. I like tozainamboku's reply, because in many cases like mine, there are too many for the ignore list.
  8. Some will call it unethical, but I would do it. I've helped hide hundreds of caches that I don't own, since Groundspeak doesn't allow two owners, either they would fill up my GPS every time I load it as the nearest unfound caches, or I need to claim a find on them... I don't know about other places but in Utah its SOP that when multiple people hide a cache the people who don't own it add it to their watchlist and wait until after the FTF and then log it.
  9. You can also use My Finds with CacheStats. It's a standalone app for Windows. Under the Caches tab, you can choose to show caches with multiple finds. If you don't already use GSAK this may be the easier option. Or ItsNotAboutTheNumbers.com will do the same thing.
  10. I've not logged one that I hid and own, but I do have finds on caches I own because of adoption, etc.. A lot of people around here DO log finds of caches they hid and own, I guess they want their find count to go up, since its just a game I don't look down on them or tell on them, I want my finds to go up too, so I understand... I just wouldn't do it that way.
  11. It all comes down to laziness for me, if I'm using field notes, which I almost always do now it sets the date automatically to the date I sent the text message, which is when I found the cache... If I'm not using field notes, usually because I was out of cell phone range in the mountains or desert when I made the find then I just log it, I don't often take the time to think back and set the date right.
  12. If you log it on geocaching.com it keeps track of all of your finds, did not finds, notes etc..
  13. Challenge caches are ALRs, I want them... but it sounds like they are safe... other ALRs are usually pointless... and I LOVE Lamp post hides
  14. I can see asking them to change their log and not mention when time they were there if you don't want cachers to look bad, but I don't think you should say someone can't log a find because they broke a law, have you ever gone 1 MPH over the speed limit for a moment while traveling to a cache? Guess you'd better not log it either by your standards. lol
  15. I like 'em. And I don't think as many people hate them as it seems like, I think the people who like them are out finding them so they are not heard from here, while the people who hate them have nothing to look for so they complain here. hehe
  16. I've never heard the term breeder cache, but it sounds like the same thing as what Utah/Wyoming cachers call "Spawner Caches," and there are lots of them around here.
  17. I'm surprised to find you hanging out in the geocaching forums, given that you've quit caching. LOL
  18. True. I've had caches published within seconds, I always click "view listing" after I submit the cache just to make sure things look right, and when I did that it was already published, thats probably 5 seconds? I've also had it take weeks before. I don't get worked up over either.
  19. Hopefully nobody mentioned these, I didn't read all the posts... but the two that come to mind for me are : http://coord.info/gc16nar and http://coord.info/gc1m451
  20. So far I've never used the ignore list, maybe someday... I've got a long life of caching ahead of me I hope... But in the 7 1/2 years I've cached so far I've never found a cache that wasn't worth looking for, I've always said I'll look for any cache and unless something major happens I don't see that changing. I try to look at it this way, The hider obviously thought it was a good idea, so I'm just grateful they gave me something to find.
  21. I just consider micros and nanos the same thing, it makes life simple. I do wish people had to list a size though, it makes the hunt much more fun.
  22. haha.... reminds me of http://coord.info/GC131WD
  23. You shouldn't have to wait too long for GC1JWAY to come out
