+Pink Paisley Posted April 18, 2014 Share Posted April 18, 2014 Thoughtless setting of microyomps and pointless micros in general. I know this has been done to death and back, but that doesn't stop it irking me. And I live on a small island where we are rather crammed together. I have no doubt that this has set this game on a downward spiral. There are a lot of new cachers joining us every day and the most likely first experience that they will have is finding a micro which will almost certainly break the setting guidelines (no GC number and no cache note - yes I know this isn't a requirement. But many - most? are placed without land owner consent.) New cachers enthused with the game simply repeat what they have seen and so it goes. And film cans placed every 500 feet just use up space forcing new cachers into less and less inspiring locations. New series anyone? 'Pointless Micros in Pointless Places. Number 42 The Dog Mess Bin'. Perhaps microyomps belong in a new section of the site in the way that locationless caches ended up being Waymarking. How about excluding a larger container from the 500 feet rule where there are micros in the way? Perhaps it is time to explore what other geocaching sites have to offer......... PP.
