A great log revisited

Recommended Posts

I suspect this has been covered in the past.

If we can award  a favourite point to a cache. Why is it not possible to award a favourite point for a great log to a cache that I own?

In Canada and Norway, you can.  I guess it's experimental, and in fact, currently it's broken.  :(  In these two countries, you can were able to mark a log as "great story" and/or "helpful".

 

There's another thread about it...

There are currently tests in a couple of countries for a similar system...

Guess you're asking to be able to "reward" a cacher who simply writes a decent log.   Didn't you think anyone would  ?

Maybe I just don't understand why a game/hobby needs so much reinforcement to continue lately.   :)

Pity those who started this hobby with no "extras" provided to them ...

Can you tell us what you're hoping to accomplish? I would think sending an appreciative private note to people that write great logs would be the best way to tell them how much you appreciate the log. Wanting a mechanism that is both impersonal and public makes me wonder what the goal is.

Agreed.

(I'll upvote your log to reward you)

This!  I am so tired of everyone needing everyone else's approval.  "Like" this.  "Upvote" that!  That whole mentality has spread way too far - there are even business-focused collaboration apps with this system in place.

 

I write logs for several reasons: to show appreciation to the effort of the cache owner, to relate my experience for future seekers, and to help me remember various cache hunts.  And a few because I'm apparently a frustrated novelist.

 

(Yes, we give out favorite points to worthy caches.  Yes, I'll probably upvote the previous post - making me part of the problem, I guess.  And, yes, I expect this post may get some upvotes. (including, I expect, a few sarcastic upvotes) *sigh*)

 

If you like someone's log, send them an e-mail or add a Write Note log to the cache page (of course, these forums are about the extent of our involvement in social media, so I may be am hopelessly out of touch).  [Before anyone else tries to "fix that for me" :P]

What do you guys have against dropping compliments?!?

 

Facebook's Like button has been insanely popular...

 

I don't use the Facebook Like button, but if someone takes the time to write a nice log I'll often acknowledge and thank them for it.

If anybody is concerned about the direction this is taking, check out the “Nosedive” episode of Black Mirror...
