+Team MavEtJu Posted June 13, 2016 Share Posted June 13, 2016 Last weekend I walked over a bridge, counting the number of panels needed to find the final coordinates of a multi-cache. At the end were two young ones and a parent standing with a phone, looking confused. While I got my pen and paper out and read through the formula to obtain the final coordinates, they asked me if I was also geocaching. They were confused, because the map showed that there should be a geocache around here (there wasn't, it was a multi) but them using the Groundspeak app didn't show anything more than the first three lines of text. I told them about the limitation for non-premium members to not see the non-traditional caches and the higher rated ones. But since I just did a couple in the area, I told them to look for them, and then realized that because of the "foresty" area they were more than the 1.5 rating. FML. And theirs. So at the end I logged in with my account to their phone, giving them access to all caches in the area. Then took them with me on the hunt for the multi, which was found. Asked them not to log anything on the phone as it will show up on my name :-P So dear Groundspeak... Why do I have to apologize for your treatment of people who are just starting, who are as confused as a hungry baby in a topless bar, who try to find out how things work and why they don't work for them, who try to see if this is the right hobby for them? Get rid of that silly limitation to 1.5 rating and traditionals only and give people a chance to learn about the game. Edwin Quote Link to comment
