+tozainamboku Posted April 8, 2009 Share Posted April 8, 2009 Aren't Wherigo "caches" just big, huge, time-consuming ALR caches in disguise? Are they affected (sorry if this was mentioned already...I didn't have the patience to read every post in this thread) by this new guideline in any way? No, you're confusing "having to do something to find the cache" (any multi, puzzle, or Wherigo) with "having to do something after finding the cache in order to log it online" (any ALR) The issue is that Miss Jenn indicated that a Wherigo cache coule have a requirement the finder has completed the cartridge on the Wherigo site before they a can log a find on the Geocaching site. As DanOCan pointed out it is possible to have found the Wherigo cache and sign the physical log, and then have the Wherigo cartridge crash before you get the unlock code for the Wherigo site. In his case the cache owner allowed the find but it sounds like Groundspeak would have also allowed the owner to delete the 'Found It' log. Or suppose I go to look for a Wherigo cache with a friend who has an Oregon. We find the cache together and sign the log. Then for whatever reason my friend doesn't complete the cartridge on the Wherigo site. I assume that if he completes the cartridge and I write in my log 'found it with xxx" that my Found It could stand, but if he doesn't complete the cartridge then I am out of luck.
