I've had it with this ridiculous new trend in creating your own visit requirements. Those waymarks should not be approved by the category officers. 

Bloggers:

VISIT INSTRUCTIONS
The requirement for logging a visit is posting a comment below one of our blogs (so not here on Waymarking!) telling us in what camper we travel.
Become a follower of our blog will be highly appreciated but is not mandatory.

________

So what is the point of creating a waymark for a blog when a waymark visit can't even be made on the waymark page? The WMO reiterated this requirement to me after I visited the blog and made a comment. 

I'd be happy to edit some of my waymarks and create my own visit requirements if this is going to be allowed. Good luck meeting those requirements.

Visit instructions for my Waymark Sticker and Pin Seekers - must present a $20 bill to the WMO as proof of visit. Oh, and I'll change the location to one of the brewpubs from the Way Tour.

Now that's what I'm talking about. I like that one! Don't mention which brewpub, though. They have to come find you, if they want the waymark visit badly enough.

I'm not a native speaker, but as far as I understand it, the WMO requires to post a comment on the blog. Meaning, that you actualy visit the blog and add a comment there and not just open the waymark. Once you have posted a comment on the blog, you are allowed to log a visit of the waymark. At least that's what I would think. Have you posted a comment on the according blog?

This is not a new trend. It has been a common pattern for some brand new waymarkers since the beginning. I receive submissions with visit requirements (sometimes visit requirements only, no other text) on a regular base in lots of categories. Not a big deal, deny and explain why.

If such a submission is accepted in error, this can be corrected.
