+ZeppelinDT Posted March 21, 2016 Share Posted March 21, 2016 Hints that aren't hints. Don't you love these hints when out in the woods and the hint says: "behind a tree". All you have to then is find a tree Sometimes the hint makes sense after the cache/WP is found and some hints never make sense. Doesn't bother me at all. Idunno, I think "behind a tree" can be a pretty darn good hint. Narrows the search area down quite a bit... I've found plenty of caches in the woods that are under a fallen or hidden under a geopile with no other landmarks or under rotted remains, etc. Knowing that you can limit your search to the trees can save a ton of time. My point though is not so much about confusing hints, but about people who write something in the "hint" section that is not (and was never intended) to be a hint. I've found plenty of caches where the hint made no sense until somebody explained it to me, but for most of those at least there was some sort of rationale behind it. But what's the point of putting something in the "hint" section if you know it has no relationship whatsoever to the hide. I've also seen some hints on older caches that just say something like "sorry, no hint", but the admins seem to have put a stop to that (requiring that the hint line just be left blank).
