Cache size in the cache submission form

These are the current cache size descriptions in the submission form:

And this is the Knowledge Book site's description:

Didn't micro use to say "35 mm film canister or smaller – less then 3 ounce or .1 litres -- typically containing only a logbook"

Didn't small use to say "sandwich-sized Tupperware-style container or similar -- less than approximately 1 quart or litre -- holds trade items as well as a logbook"

 

What does "Regular (Rubbermaid, ammo box)" mean? There are different Rubbermaid sizes and ammo cans sizes

 

Anyone know why they changed things? And why they dropped the volumes?

Click on the "What does a geocache look like?" entry on the Geocaching 101 page to find the following:

micro.gif Micro - Less than 100ml. Examples: a 35 mm film canister or a tiny storage box typically containing only a logbook or a logsheet. A nano cache is a common sub-type of a micro cache that is less than 10ml and can only hold a small logsheet.

small.gif Small - 100ml or larger, but less than 1L. Example: A sandwich-sized plastic container or similar.

regular.gif Regular - 1L or larger, but less than 20L. Examples: a plastic container or ammo can about the size of a shoebox.

large.gif Large - 20L or larger. Example: A large bucket.

other.gif Other - See the cache description for information.

It would be nice if this set of definitions were easier to find and reference. For starters, it would be nice if I could provide a simple URL without telling people to "Click on the 'What does a geocache look like?' entry" to see the hidden content that includes these definitions.

I agree. Thanks for the link to the GC 101 page.

 

The Geocaching 101 description is very concise and hard to misinterpret. Wonder why the discrepancy and whether GS even knows that 3 of their webpages have 3 different descriptions of cache sizes.

 

The most important spot to put the above info is on the submission form and I'm pretty sure it once used to look like the info on the GC 101 page. Wonder why they changed it to what it currently is?

Wow! Is that ever buried!! I would never have thought to look there. I would have expected pictures of ammo cans, camo'd peanut butter jars, fake rocks, etc.

The problems I see are when the CO list the size by the outside the container. Okay. A wooden log could be a regular but the if the actually container where the logsheet is, is a micro is misleading to those looking for a regular to drop trackables.

But at the same time you are looking for a regular size and not a micro. What a conundrum.
