+danieloliveira Posted November 6, 2011 Share Posted November 6, 2011 A nagging question has been eating bothering me for a weeks and I guess you could consider this as a poll-type question: 1- Should the cache page of an EarthCache provide the actual lesson? (i.e. should all the information be made available on the cache page so that when you visit the site you only get to grips with the practical side of things). or 2- Should the actual lesson be reserved for the EarthCache site? (i.e. The cache page has introduced the problem but the actual feature can only be seen at the site?) Maybe a little difficult to understand and perhaps I should exemplify. Say you want to do an EC that brings together elements from a whole region (eg. mineral deposits, or types of minerals). It would be impossible to send everyone to every location that these minerals come from. However, you find a site that has a collection of these minerals (not a museum!) where samples can be viewed, touched and even smelt. Additionally, the site is complemented with information boards on each mineral, their mode of occurrence, etc. The cache page would obviously have to be generic enough to describe the site in detail but not each mineral, etc. Please let's have your opinion on this. Thanks. Quote Link to comment
