Re: NY Admin strikes again!

Pofe publishes on Thursdays (and sometimes Wednesdays). She's a good reviewer, but don't expect anything faster. Hmm... Are you being deliberately misleading..? I had heard rumors of Pofe's identity and wouldn't have used the same pronoun... I've been working on a bunch of Harry-Andy ...

Re: New iPhone and Geocaching

... suspect that some of the physical limitations the phone faces due to the size of the unit (as compared with the size of the 60csx or Colorado) are being well-compensated for via the cellular corrections. I guess it is worth noting that the last iPhone had cellular-based location gimmicks that did ...

Re: Fear Archived

Re: FTF Etiquette

... Is it "fair" if the CO gives a friend the coords to a cache before it's published? Or let's say the friend signs the log AS the cache is being placed? As someone who engages in the sport of FTF hunting, I don't really consider myself competing with people who find the cache before it ...

Re: FTF Etiquette

... people know that the cache has been claimed. I think it's a fair and sporting thing to do. (I've even gone so far as emailing other cachers after being STF on a cache which is taking the FTF a while to log online - since I like to wait for the FTF to post first, other hounds don't have any other ...

Re: Not Signing the Logbook

... have been honestly trying to be helpful. I've replaced more than one cache container, for more than one CO, in my day, and I didn't think I was being a bad guy (although I never did it after failing to find the cache in the first place, and then claiming it as a find). But as far as the people ...

Re: FTF Etiquette

Re: Puzzle Preparedness

Re: Innwood Park...bike friendly?

Will I be able to find a lot of the caches in that area without being out of sight of the bike? You should be able to. Most of the caches are pretty close to a path - although I'm not sure how bike-able all of the paths are. You might wind up carrying the ...

Announcing... Dastardly Pathtags!

... look. Right now we're using 15 and 30, but those are "beta" thresholds - we may change them in the future. Also, right now the tags are being provided as gifts, but it's possible that in the future we may ask people to chip in a couple of dollars for their tags. It's hard for us to say, ...

Re: Geolitter

... not, but you never know. (I know the caches that were placed on canal bridges in Brooklyn a couple of years ago got listed on Terracaching after being retracted by NYA.) If the owner doesn't get back to you within a couple of weeks I think you can safely get rid of it / recycle it / etc. And ...

Re: How to contact a reviewer?

The only implication of it not being a challenge cache is that you can't delete logs for people not completing the component parts. In other words, if someone somehow signed the final ...

Re: Clever Cache Ideas

At some point a couple of years ago, it seems that TPTB banished 'FTF curse' caches. It had to do with the quality of the caches that were being submitted as a result of the 'requirement' of the find. The relevant current part of the guidelines reads: Cache pages cannot require, and should ...
