Attributes In Cache Discription?


Recommended Posts

Kemo, when you create a cache, you'll be asked to "Add/Update Attributes". That page defines what all the symbols are. Also, if you're looking at someone else's cache, and hold your cursor over each symbol, it'll tell you what it means.

Here's a list I copy/pasted from one of my "Add Attribute" pages. As you can see, there are 5 basic groups of symbols, Permissions, Special Equipment Required, Conditions, Hazards and Facilities. I couldn't get the symbols to show up, so all you get is the text. Hopefully somebody a bit more computer savy than me can display the symbols for you.

:) What do the attributes mean in the cache discription? Its the area on the right side of the screen under navigation with different pics. I can understand some of them, but is there a place on the web site that tells you specifically what they are?


Thanks, sorry for all the posts...

The simple answer is... just hold your mouse pointer over them, and the description will pop up.
