+Pasha88 Posted April 6, 2010 Share Posted April 6, 2010 Alright, perhaps this is just my current frustration, but hopefully someone can help me with this... I have a large number of "successful" (long standing with many finds) caches, but also some new ones (approx 80 total). For the most part, people caching in our area are VERY receptive and appreciative of cachesplaced near home - especially puzzles that have been given a lot of thought and time. However, there is one particular cacher who, no matter what, will write something negative about your geocache in his/her "find" log. For example: I have a cache located on public, crown land. It is easily accessible from the public, crown land. It is approximately a 500m walk down a path from parking on the side of the road. However, there is also parking on private property (a car garage)located just 100m from the cache. Log reads: Cache requires people to go on private land. Caches shouldn't be placed on PP. Not happy with cache placement. I took a long time trying to find out if this particular area of land was private or public. I contacted the municipality many times, and I was given the ok to place this particular cache. 34 other individuals to date have done the puzzle and found this cache, with no complaints (other than someone who stepped in a creek and had to go home with a wet shoe). Cache listing clearly states cache is on public land. Example 2: another puzzle cache. Sudoku. A few kind individuals identified an issue with the cache, which was solved immediately. 6 additional cachers had no problems with this cache once I corrected the mistake. Log from cacher:Tried to figure puzzle out twice. Couldn't figure it out. Puzzle is wrong. CO needs to fix it. Fortunately for the cacher, I had listed the approximately co-ords (within 100m) for the actual listing and they were able to find it just by wandering around looking for the clue. But, this cacher didn't say what the mistakes were or how they could be fixed. There are 5 or 6 other examples of logs that were quite rude (some DNF logs included, where they DNF'd, said it was an awful cache/location, yet when I went to do maintenance it was there, and one including a word that shouldn't be used on a family site) I deleted the DNF logs, but feel bad deleting the found logs as I know that will erase the find from the cacher's page. I know at least 2 other local cachers have called this particluar person out (one, very publicly, at an event) for rude logs(especially for DNFs) with no changes in his/her behaviour. I have even sent this cacher a message but got no response and continue to receive rude logs. This cacher has over 8000 finds so I also feel like I don't have much say with my 230finds... against this seasoned cacher. Does anyone have any thoughts/suggestions as to what can be done to correct these logs? Perhaps I am taking this cacher's logs too seriously and should listen to the other people who have found and enjoyed the same cache? Thoughts? Thanks... Quote Link to comment
