Logs without photos


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

Recently one waymarker log mine WM of five countries without photi and with one word. 

Has it happened to you too? In ten of the eleven a photo is required, therefore I could only erase 10 or can I erase the other?

Thanks.

And I had sent private to him too

I think I have visits of the same user. Simãopwr? He logged at least two of my waymarks in Sweden and one in Austria with the very same day and only 1 or 2 words, but without photos.

 

He has been a geocacher for years and seems to be a new Waymarking user and he probably doesn't understand the Waymarking rules yet. I will also email him with a personal mail and explain everything to him once more.

 

Usually I don't delete this kind of visits, unless the visitor obviously logged a visit by accident (if for example my waymark has a similar name as the waymark that was actually visited). But whenever I delete a waymark I send an email earlier to give the user the chance to explain or correct the mistake.

What I personally do is delete all logs that do require a photo or specific visit requirement. If the category states a photo is not required then I do not delete that one. But I think it is certainly reasonable to delete them all.  I wish all categories required a photo. 

Most categories have specific rules for posting visits as they do for posting new waymarks.  Follow the rules and the visit doesn't get deleted.

One of the reasons Waymarking started was too much armchair geocaching on locationless and virtual caches.

That's part of what I just now emailed to him and another user of a similar kind. My guess is that they neither read the visit instructions (or don't take them too serious), nor the forums. So, a personal note should maybe help and if they don't react on that, I will send another mail via geocaching.com.

I think that they do with awareness because they logged one or two of each country.

This is my worry with the upcoming Mingo Madness. It's just Waymarking, not geocaching, so nobody cares if I follow the rules, right?

hmmm....  yea, me being the leader of the Kansas Historical Markers and knowing that this historical marker will be the secondary focus of the event - this nobody will probably care....  :)  Just sayin'....

I just deleted logs from two of my waymarks where the guy pulled the pictures off the internet...  I HATE people who pass others work off as their own.  Upsets me to no end what lengths some will do for a stupid number - dang, if you don't have the requirements, don't post the waymark or the visit.  Lord knows how many waymarks and visits I have had to eat because I didn't get the exact correct pictures....  Yes, I put on significant weight because of it - LOL
