+JPreto Posted April 2, 2014 Share Posted April 2, 2014 First of all I really must congratulate Groundspeak for this idea!!! I am a fighter in my community (Brazil - São Paulo) against all other geocachers because they don´t bother about DNFs, they say that they are useless and moreover makes other geocachers less keen to go there and look for the cache. I totally disagree with this point of view and always log all caches I visit, with either a FOUND, a DNF and if the case a NEEDS MAINTENANCE, rarely an ARCHIVE. So thank you, thank you Groundspeak to let everybody know how important a DNF can be for the owner!!!! I hope the results from this campaign are great and more and more DNFs are registered!!!! Now the BUT... Why not make a campaign against Photologs or Throwdows? These are major problems in geocaching, at least in Brazil they are, and for what I read, the same thing happens all over the world. Geocachers want numbers, that is a fact!!!! (otherwise why would anyone log a cache?!?!?) The problem is how they get their numbers, honestly or not... or lets put it, following the rules or not... The rules are clear: No photologs, you must sign the physical logbook in order to log on the site. Right? Many geocachers forget this and if the CO just left the caches there and never did maintenance or abandoned the game anybody can log a FIND even if they haven´t found it or even worse, leave a new cache in the supposed place and log a FOUND. This is the worst case for me, it´s breaking 2 rules: 1st you are not the CO so don´t leave a new box and 2nd log a FOUND in a cache you just placed... right, they forget where they just placed it!!! Again, great "DNF PRIDE" campaign, why not go for the next level? Quote Link to comment
