+Ragnemalm Posted December 16, 2019 Share Posted December 16, 2019 Is there anything in the rules about what a hint should be? There are some sweeping ideas here: https://www.geocaching.com/blog/2013/10/tips-on-geocache-hints/ but these are not rules, only "tips". Still, I have been denied publising a cache since the hint was vague. But, there is another kind that are accepted: Caches where you must read the hint to find the cache! I am not talking about a cleverly hidden trad, but the code for accessing/starting a Wherigo or the actual problem for a mystery. If you don't read the hint, it is literally impossible to solve it! IMHO this should be against the rules, since it is downright counter-intuitive, a clear case of reading the COs mind. Any normal person tried without the hint, since a hint is a hint! It is like placing the actual coordinates in the hint. Do you find this OK? Is there anything in the rules or guidelines that oppose this kind of false hints? 2 Quote Link to comment
