+The A-Team Posted December 14, 2016 Share Posted December 14, 2016 I just received a couple of emails with the following subject line: "[GEO] Transferred Ownership of Travel Bug" I almost had a heart attack when I saw that subject line, because I definitely hadn't put any of my trackables up for adoption. I then opened up the email and it contained the following message (I've removed specific identifying details): This is an email from Geocaching.com letting you know that the travel bug [The name of the trackable] has been transferred to account "[Name of another cacher]". There is no need to respond to this email. Visit this Travel Bug here I then realized that this was actually telling me that someone else had grabbed this trackable from my possession, and it had nothing to do with a transfer of ownership. Is it just me, or is this an exceedingly-poorly worded email? In contrast, the way these emails used to look was the following: Subject line: "[LOG] Holder: [Name of other cacher] grabbed [Name of trackable] from [Your name]" Body: This is an automated message from Geocaching.com You are receiving this email because you are currently listed as the holder of this Travel Bug. [Name of other cacher] grabbed [Name of trackable] from [Your name] on [Date of grabbing]. [...and then the contents of the log and links to the log and trackable] IMO, the old format was much more clear about what's happening with the trackable. Quote Link to comment
