Etiquette on splitting a shared account


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

Need the wisdom of the community here. My daughter has been with me on several but not all of my caching finds since I started a couple of years back. She's now old enough that she wants her own account so I've set her up separate from my own.

 

Is it acceptable to go back and log finds that she participated on with me on her account?

 

I've seen this done by a few other people but wasn't sure if that was proper etiquette or not. I appreciate the feedback!

It's done a lot, and most cache owners are happy enough to allow the re-logging in these circumstances.

 

Your daughter's logs should be back-dated to when she was actually at the cache and it would be polite to include a brief explanation so that the CO understands what's being done, e.g. "I found this cache with CowboyMonkey but I'm now logging it under my new, separate account name."

Yep, I've done exactly that for my 2 kids and wife and had no complaints.

Yes, it's fine, but I don't think I'd do it. If I were her, I'd consider my new account the symbol of a new caching career statistically unrelated to my previous cache hunting with you. That leaves her free to go back and revisit some of the ones you visited together if she wants, or just move on to bigger and better caches.
