+Jaz666 Posted August 28, 2009 Share Posted August 28, 2009 [bIG SNIP] And lastly, from the FAQ What are the rules in Geocaching? 1. If you take something from the cache, leave something of equal or greater value. 2. Write about your find in the cache logbook. 3. Log your experience at www.geocaching.com. I don't think bold is necessary here! Sorry to be a pendant Ian, but most, if not all references to logging online have been added in a code release this year. The same section taken from archive.org (Feb 2008) What are the rules in Geocaching? Geocaching is a relatively new phenomenon. Therefore, the rules are very simple: 1. Take something from the cache 2. Leave something in the cache 3. Write about it in the logbook Where you place a cache is up to you. The closest I can find was a page that suggested you could "EMail" the hider to let them know you've found their cache. So yes, it was suggested, but not insisted upon. I recall this being discussed in the forum a few years back, and it didn't seem to cause as much fuss then - non-online-logging geocachers seemed to be quite common, and accepted as long as they didn't mess with TBs. I've always made a point of reading the physical logbook, both in my caches, and caches I find. Back when I started there were at least two caching names/teams who's names appeared in all the logbooks of caches I was finding, but never online. I quickly learnt that these were people who chose not to log online, and talking to local cachers showed they were all well known and liked. To this day, I still give a wry smile when I see their caching names in logbooks. Quote Link to comment
