+CacheDrone Posted July 22, 2009 Share Posted July 22, 2009 I have a new template, and after talking to another cacher we thought it might be worth sharing. Likely we've all seen cache pages that are several months old and have a list of trade items on them and we all know that it is really unlikely that any of those items are still in the container. So, instead it might be better to post a note during creation of the listing that tells people how it started off. The template sounds like this, but it is new as of today so it might need some updating. Looks like you have a bunch of nice trade items within your new geocache. I would like to offer you a suggestion that may be more effective to tell people what was in your cache when it was placed. You can post a note to your own cache just like you would log a visit and provide the list of items there instead. There are a few benefits to doing this. Over time most of those trade items will be long since removed from the cache and hopefully replaced with other nice items. After a few finders that list is no longer accurate. It becomes just unnecessary text on the page, often within a month or two. You are not required to do any of this of course, it is just a suggestion. Quote Link to comment
