ais uma caixinha, deu luta e no meio de tanto mato e silvas não surgiu. deixei um conteiner no GZ.

 

Translation by Google

"here was a box, there was a struggle and in the middle of so much bush and brambles it didn’t appear. I left a container at GZ."

Solved the puzzle and came out to the location with a previous finder. Cache is definitely gone and nearby rocks that would have covered the cache are in disarray. Cache not on ground nearby either. CO does not appear to be active since mid 2013. Went back to car and grabbed a small container to replace. Hid well (not under rocks) and ready for next folks. TFTC.

Three DNF logs (mine was the first) then this:

Randomly ended up at this hotel for the night. Imagine our surprise to find it had a cache and a letterbox right outside. Left a replacement notecard, it's all we had.

 

Then six more DNFs, then the CO replaced it.

This is GCHQ and to claim a find you have to sign the log book in the reception area  - the place has been closed  for ages - but you get a special icon for this found ?

why have they not had the logs deleted

Viewed from the other side of the coin, I see more than 25 deleted "Found it" logs from the period after HQ closed down due to COVID-19.  I am guessing that some poor Lackey is tasked with the duty of cleaning up the cache page periodically - but not on a real-time basis.

Was up the mountains for the weekend for an appointment I had over in xxx. Afterwards, with no other obligations I decided to do a little caching. After a day of driver and caching had over 100 miles on the truck and 31 cache finds in the draft que. This was one of the many great finds one the day. Thanks to all the COs. SL TFTC

Replaced missing cache for CO

33 finds.

 

This is a 16 stage multicache, that involved driving Canberra to Darwin and back. Over 10,000 kms. Also the state borders have been closed. I don't think so!! But I know this CO will be on top of this. I await the 'fun' :rolleyes::laughing::drama:.

 

And it gets better, they also did the similar multicache on the same day to Perth, and the WA border has been locked for months.

would it not be better to delete incorrect logs and to lock the page ?

(The Found itFound it person among the DNFs appears to log finds, just for visiting GZ; even for those caches they don't manage to find. Or that's what they did for one of my caches. They didn't find it - no signature and couldn't describe the cache or log - but logged a find anyway.)

It has been a couple of days since I last found a cache or even been on the site, so tonight I headed out with my mom who had some errands to run. It was great to go out for an evening walk and find some caches. I started here and arrived at GZ to find it smashed. I was at the right place based on previous logs, so I'm going to log a find as well. As mentioned before, this one needs some TLC. TFTH.

Found the lamp post in question, although the cover is now completely broken and there is no cache in sight. Logging this one as a find if CO permits, as we were on the exact spot. Cache will need to be replaced!

CO changed this missing cache to a virtual. I think someone had a whisper in his ear and it is now disabled.

I wonder how many of these are from the glitch that changes your DNF drafts into Found It logs? I caught it just before publishing a couple logs last week.

You don't even need a cache or log to log it seems. Some make a log when there is nothing to find. I found the broken shards of a cache recently, removed the remains of plastic, but today it was logged. 7 NM going back to 2012, so the cache has been in bad condition since then. I made a NA on 20/11/20. I only logged it because I found the remains and signed a tiny bit of paper in it. If I had found nothing I would have logged a DNF (as in the example above in my previous entry). I wrote a note after the log.

The cache has broken down; there have been several NMs going back to 2012, but no action from the CO. As no maintenance has been done in that time, and there has been no indication that the CO has any intention to remove this (now) rubbish, I removed them, rather than leave them here to break down further and never be removed. Photograph included in my log to show the unusable remains.

The container is broken. There was a tiny slip of paper that I signed, but then I realised there have been logs going back a long way about the cache's broken condition and nothing has been done to rectify it. So rather than leave the plastic shards here to break down further, I did the responsible thing and picked up the litter to dispose of. There is now no cache here. I checked and there was a NM way back in 2012, and six more since. This needs NM or NA. Photograph of plastic shards included to show that I didn't remove a viable cache; but only litter.

On more than one occasion I've found just shards of plastic at GZ and was mentally composing my DNF and NM logs when I happened to spy the actual cache safe and sound in its well-concealed hidey-hole. The shards weren't geo-litter, they were just plain litter (which I removed).

No, that was the cache, as there were past their use by date trinkets in it. Plus 7 NMs and many comments on its condition.

Am I correct in guessing that none posted a NM?

I would claim a find on a damaged container, provided I was sure it was actually the cache (only a broken lid with geocache printed on it).  But I would add a replacement log, put everything in a zip-lock bag and then publish NM.  NM's automatically go on my watch list and I'll check back in a month or so to add NA if needed.

You are correct. The best were a couple of DNFs. 

 

A DNF in Dec 2019. Followed by 2 finds on March 8th 2020, one that said  "Only cache lid remains, informed CO" (should have added this to the above post).  Followed by the list of 4 finds I posted above. Followed by a DNF. Followed by 4 more finds on the lid. A couple of people posted a photo of the lid - a very cracked peanut butter jar lid with a 1 inch hole. Followed by an OM in April, when the owner visited with a replacement cache.

Several DNFs, but 2 finds in between, without much explanation. One is a beginner, so might not have know what to do, but the other person (in purple), a more experienced cacher, has logged several of my caches without signing the log, and then not being able to describe the log, cache, etc when asked. It seems if they can't find a cache, they consider it's enough just to visit the area. (Or I presume they have visited the area :unsure:.) I deleted their non signed logs of my caches. So, I strongly suspect their log here in the middle of DNFs is similar. Their log, "Found" doesn't say much. All the DNFs said a lot more, one had15 lines.
