+L0ne.R Posted June 30, 2014 Share Posted June 30, 2014 Is anyone noticing that a lot of new cachers using apps (usually see the canned message) are claiming finds on caches that are missing. Many even say they didn't find the cache but choose "Found it". It seems like they didn't know that they could click the down arrow and change the default "Found it!" to "Didn't find it". Some caches already have multiple DNFs, then along comes a newbie app cacher who claims a find for a cache that isn't there. False finds can waste the next cacher's time and money. I've also had the experience where I log a DNF, the next person logs a DNF, then a new cacher comes along and logs a 'canned message' find. Did they actually find it? Is it worth driving over to try again? Often the CO is MIA so they're not checking and reporting on the cache. The new app finder is not reachable to ask them if the cache is really there. If the app forced people to choose a log type I think this problem would be less prevalent. Quote Link to comment
