[Feedback submitted] Option for trackable's owner to disable all actions except "discover"

Recommended Posts

There are trackables of which the owner only want it to be discovered (e.g. the trackables in the owner's collection, a car tb, virtual tb's) and the owner does not want them to be retrieved, dropped or grabbed by other cachers.

I've submitted an idea to make it possible for a trackable owner to disable all trackable's actions except "discover". This should be made possible using a check box on the trackable edit page. ("This trackable may only be discovered, not grabbed, dropped or retrieved").

 

Two examples of what is prevented by this possibility:

  1. It prevents your car TB ending up in another cacher's inventory which then has to be corrected by re-grabbing it.
  2. It prevents your virtual TB, that you have placed in one of your own caches and that may be discovered by finders of that cache, from being retrieved from that particular cache, ending up in another cacher's inventory. Which has to be corrected by having that cacher drop it again in the cache.

Wouldn't that just prevent the virtual act... not the actual physical act of taking whichever object in the cache with the trackable code?
