+BDZT Posted February 6, 2017 Share Posted February 6, 2017 Just got this reviewers note for a multi cache my family is trying to place. Its stuff like this that will push people away. Hello, I am a volunteer for Geocaching.com and I have just reviewed your new cache submission. I am temporarily placing your cache “on hold” in the review queue while we address a problem with the cache. I'm sorry, but Pokemon-Go is a competing location based game, and the staff at GC.com have determined that we cannot allow any direct or indirect references to Pokemon-Go on cache pages that are to be published on GC.com. You must remove all references to Pokemon-Go on the cache page, itself. And what does the staff at GC.com a company called GameChanger have to do with geocaching.com. Per your published pages about guidelines https://www.geocaching.com/about/guidelines.aspx there is no reference about not mentioning pokemon go. Heck i can do a search of active caches and find pokemon themed ones like a simple search brought up over 395 like https://coord.info/GC2K1DK or this https://coord.info/GC6ZCTY place 2 weeks ago. This was my Geocache Description: Quick…what team are you? Valor members train and bond with their creatures. Instinct members are all about trusting their instincts. Mystic members are interested in the biology of their creatures and stay cool and calm no matter what the situation. Our geocaching family is diverse as we have members on each team! Adding smileys to our profile makes us happy, but “the other game” is fun for hanging outside together as a family when there are no more smileys in close proximity to be had. We hope you enjoy this cache as much as we do. PS – At the final PLEASE use the existing concrete path so as not to destroy nature. Thanks! What else can we not reference that is not listed. Do i just need to remove the Team Names or mention the Trading card game that is not location based. Will just removing "the other game" be enough. What is the difference between Pokemon Go and Pokemon reference? Quote Link to comment
