+JMBella Posted October 11, 2004 Share Posted October 11, 2004 (edited) This is regarding my Son of New York cache, which was found by a lot of you NYC area cachers already. Under the guidelines, this is considered a commercial cache. I'm wondering if the sprit of that guideline really refers to a paper that costs .25 cents. I know this is far from the first cache hidden in this manner and I'm sure it won't be the last. However, this cache has to be archived (or moved) because of this guideline. So what are your thoughts? Should exceptions be made for caches of this type? This topic should not be in any way misconstrued as a flame against any admin or approver. My local approver, New York Admin, very respectfully emailed me and brought this to my attention. This is strictly to get opinions about this cache. Commercial Caches / Caches that Solicit Commercial caches attempt to use the Geocaching.com web site cache reporting tool directly or indirectly (intentionally or non-intentionally) to solicit customers through a Geocaching.com listing. These are NOT permitted. Examples include for-profit locations that require an entrance fee, or locations that sell products or services. Solicitations are also off-limits. For example, caches perceived to be posted for religious, political, or social agendas may not be listed. Geocaching is supposed to be a light, fun activity, not a platform for an agenda. Some exceptions can be made. In these rare situations, permission can be given by the Geocaching.com web site. However, permission should be asked first before posting. If you are in doubt, ask first. Edited October 11, 2004 by JMBella Quote Link to comment
