Zuckerruebensirup Posted May 29, 2002 Share Posted May 29, 2002 I don't like the idea of any surfer on the world wide web being able to see the coordinates to the caches I place. (But at the same time, I don't want to have to make them Members Only caches.) I'd like to see a feature put in place so that until a person logs in, they would be able to read all the information about a cache, except for the actual coordinates. If one of the "shoulds" in geocaching is logging our finds on the cache pages, then it doesn't seem like much of an imposition to require people to log in before viewing/downloading the actual coordinates. They'd still get the 'teaser' information to pique their interest in the sport...but before playing, they should at least be serious enough to sign up for a free account. (Yes, the clever folks could still triangulate, based on distances from centers of zip codes, etc...but I'm guessing that would only be a handful of people.) What do you think? Should log-in be required to view coordinates? Please share your thoughts as to why or why not below. Quote Link to comment
