Timeliness in logging
I just want to throw this out there. I do have my own opinions, but what I am looking for is some sort of consensus about logging caches.
The question is:
How long should a cacher wait to log their cache relative especially to First to finds?
It appears that sometimes they do not get logged promptly, but there is also the understanding that sometimes caching is done on the way to work or at times when it is not possible or convient to get to a computer.
I try to log my finds as soon as I get to a computer. Often times when I am looking at a new listing you wonder, "has it been done yet?" Often I have been tempted to drag my feet in logging new ones, but the more I think about it maybe it is only fair to log as soon a reasonably possible.
One might save someone a long trip hopeing for a FTF when in fact the cache may have had a signature in the log for hours.
There, I asked the question. What do you think?
I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!
