+Renegade Knight Posted March 17, 2004 Share Posted March 17, 2004 Before geocaching I was involved in a game that had casual rules and tournament rules. My friends and I all played by tournament rules even casually. It was just easier to agree what the playing field was like and to know where to get questions answered when something goofy came up. Geocaching will have stats again in one form or another. The debate over what a find is, should DNF's be logged, how many finds you can post on a cache event page etc. could be answered by a commitee, outside group, sports association or anyone who geocachers end up recognized as the authority for whatever we want to call our 'casual' or 'tournament rules'. Over time you end up with a catalog of answers to these situations that are as consistant as possible to the overall spirit of the game. The idea would be uniform rules that apply to all sites insofar as how geocachers play the game. 99% of the time it's a non issue. But every now and then there is some goofy situation that comes up where people pose a question. The question is: Is there an interest in something like this? Quote Link to comment
