  1. Many times...communities have ordinances about park hours. Locally, the ordinance states something along the lines of all park hours are 5am - 11pm unless otherwise posted at park entrances.
  2. All seemed fine to me...up until the statement about finding it on the ground...ALR...
  3. I have logged one of my own...but it was after I adopted it from someone moving out of the area...and I had to go out and find it in order to replace it (container was in bad shape).
  4. It appears to be working now...
  5. In a way...I find myself going the other way with puzzles. I am slowly archiving mine and not really going after them because of the "inactive" effect. Sitting in front of a computer trying to solve something is too much of an opportunity for the urge to snack. Many puzzles recently want to keep pushing the envelope of how hard something is...and yes...I admit...it was a "game" I played...but...no longer...I can't do it for the sake of my own health. An on-site puzzle...sure...gets me out an moving...but the puzzle for the sake of being a puzzle...no longer...if I want to continue on the road I decided to start...I can no longer sit in front of a computer for hours on end solving puzzles...
  6. Minnesota State Parks has had something going for a couple years now...
  7. Challenges that are more about "homework" then they are about discovering/accomplishing something...
  8. Here's the irony, without FTFs geocaching does not exist. Actually...it does...I have plenty...went I don't record them...and still...somehow...geocaching is still active in the area...and more surprising...the caches I found first but didn't say anything about being first were not sucked up in some weird geocaching black hole!!! :ph34r:
  9. No... . . . ...But, if need be...I would just stop hiding caches...simple enough...and I would leave the code in a cache if I were ever first to find...
  10. This ^^^ I have found several of these in my hometown so I suspect it is a prevalent practice. If I found one of these I think a note to the reviewer would be in order. Agreed...
  11. I am still around...just not as much as I used to be...I should probably get back into Off-Topic where someone like me belongs... I usually am referred to as..."What a Snoogan Smart-Snoogan"....
  12. Son of a Snoogans!!! (Right...like someone like me was just going to ignore that...)
  13. Kinda how I feel about your position. I'm not sure why you can't understand that your cache was DENIED. Move on with another family friendly cache. +1
  14. I guess I'm confused. Are you saying there was NO reference to the podcasts/website on your page? No link, no web address, no name of the podcast, etc. How would the reviewer and appeals make the connection that to solve your cache, you'd have to visit a family unfriendly site? Yes, when I first submitted my cache for review, it contained neither a web address nor a podcast name. It did include the names of the two hosts. And the "Additional Hint" provided a clue about the podcast's city. The reviewer knew the podcast was not family friendly because the cache page has always included a prominent warning about the podcast's crude language. I was also very upfront with the reviewer from the very beginning and included the podcast's name and web address in a "Reviewer Note." That's what I thought, too. Except...in order to solve the puzzle one needs to listen to crude content... While the concept of such a puzzle is common (listening to materials)...I think you pushed the line to far by basically requiring people to do that (listen to crude, offensive, or objectionable) material. Yes, I know and get it that not all people do puzzles...and puzzles are not for everyone...but using that "Reasoning" for why this cache should be published is pushing the limits as well. In my opinion...the content of the puzzle...and thus the cache crossed the line.
  15. One podcast host frequently uses profanity and makes sexual innuendos. Usually dozens of times during each episode. The other host does so occasionally. I agree the podcast episodes are family unfriendly. I don't expect children to listen to the podcasts. My cache is intended for adults, just like geocaching events held in pubs are intended for adults. I think you hit the answer to your own question right there... "My cache is intended for adults..." - In other words...not a family "I agree the podcast episodes are family unfriendly." - Then why base a puzzle on them???
  16. Not everyone is social...just ignore it an move on. I have met a couple people that just didn't care to be around people in general...
  17. Same Here... Caching in the winter...I will us other's tracks to help get where I want to go.
  18. I am going to bet there is a "regional uproar" about the logs and Groundspeak...an "entitled sense of control" seems to be the main theme when items such as this come up. While I would agree...having your logs deleted is uncalled for by the cache owner...having them reinstated then deleted by Groundspeak means there is a whole lot more to this situation then any of us my be able to know about at this time.
  19. Again...keep in mind...proximity issues are present for everyone...not just Premium vs Nonpremium Members. Simply put, one needs to check with a reviewer if there ever is a question...and even then, one just has to be prepared to move or retrieve a failed attempt. Even in the recent year I have been "turned down"...just one of those moments...it happens...
  20. Apparently, I'm the only one who did not know about pie day. It's nothing against Toz; I should have figured that if anyone knew about it, he would. I'm just waiting for national donut day, myself. Friday, June 7th...
  21. Oh, man, you're right! Wikipedia Not only is that a good coincidence, I can't believe you actually knew about it. I can't believe that you didn't believe toz knew about pie day!!! My world is blown...into 3.14159... pieces!!! :blink:
  22. Ah...yes...Mob Justice...always the way to go... If one has issues with a reviewer...they should always be taken to Groundspeak...not aired in the forums.
