+Dread_Pirate_Bruce Posted December 10, 2015 Share Posted December 10, 2015 I would never throw down a cache so I could log a find. (I might replace one at the owner's request.) Regardless, I have found caches that I'm pretty sure we're throw-downs. Sometimes, the log sheet on a supposedly old cache will be blank or have just a few signatures. Sometimes the online log will say it's a replacement. Sometimes I will deduce that a cache is a throw-down from a series of DNFs followed by finds. Sometimes what I find is not what the cache page describes. I subscribe to the rule that I'll play the game as I want and you play the game as you want. As such, sometimes I'll feel justified in logging a find on a throw-down and sometimes I won't. When I elect not to claim a find, I may post a note saying that what I found probably wasn't the real cache. I don't post a DNF as that may confuse those who are ok with logging finds on throw-downs. As far as throw-downs that I will log as finds, I will claim a find if the throw-down is a fair representation of what the cache probably was and the place it was probably hidden. Otherwise, I won't. I'm just wondering how others handle this kind of a situation. As a corollary, what do others do in the following situation: There was a cache rated at D4 because it was very cleverly disguised and hidden. However, someone broke it and as a result could not put it back as it had been. This made it very easy to find and many people logged finds. I did not realize this when I went hunting for it. I found it and signed the log. I have not logged it online. How do others handle this? Quote Link to comment
