+homedg Posted June 5, 2010 Share Posted June 5, 2010 This post was censored off the GCA site so I will post it here for comments. I find it Amazing that these types of events http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...87-38fc3ce6ea6f continue to get published despite these Guidelines. Caches that Solicit Solicitations are off-limits. For example, caches perceived to be posted for religious, political, charitable or social agendas are not permitted. Geocaching is supposed to be a light, fun activity, not a platform for an agenda. Commercial Caches Commercial caches will not be published on geocaching.com without prior approval from Groundspeak. A commercial cache is a geocache listing or geocache which is perceived by Groundspeak, Groundspeak's employees, or the Volunteer Geocache Reviewers as having been submitted to geocaching.com with the principal or substantial intent of soliciting customers or generating commercial gain. The geocache is presumed to be commercial if the finder is required to go inside a business, interact with employees, and/or purchase a product or service, or if the cache listing has overtones of advertising, marketing, or promotion. Additionally, links to businesses, commercial advertisers, charities, political or social agendas, or the inclusion of their associated logos are not permitted on cache descriptions without prior permission from Groundspeak. Just imagine if Exxon listed their AGM as an event and applied a "donation" to non-shareholders to attend the coffee and bickies afterwords. Let alone excluded, without grounds, any attendance to the AGM itself.............. I am curious about what other people think about this? Quote Link to comment
