Fledermaus Posted May 20, 2013 Share Posted May 20, 2013 For those of you who don't know what Steganography is, it simply means the hiding data (i.e. text etc.) within pictures. To the best of my knowledge, there is no such thing as one program or website that can solve all forms of Steganography. Therefore, one has to download different programs from different websites to solve different type of Steganography puzzles. So, why have the GC Reviewers come to the conclusion that it is in their/our best interest to disallow this type of puzzle to exist? To support their decision making process, the following statement has been used: (Reference this guideline: http://www.geocaching.com/about/guidelines.aspx#thirdpartycontent) In the interest of file security, caches that require the installing or running of data and/or executables will likely not be published. Why don't you just leave my security to me. Sounds like GC's attempt to protect us from ourselves! The funny thing is, their are several functions within GC itself that require downloading of various programs from other websites. Should those downloads be banned as well? Does anyone over at GC care to explain why this type of puzzle is now being banned? Fledermaus My two mottos are: If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix it! --- If It Still Works, Don't Replace It!
