    Post It was a good hide...

    It was a clever hide all on it's own. Rather than get into a conflict I simply changed my log to "Found it" from the nice glowing report I had originally. The CO didn't say they did or did not post incorrect coords to me personally or on the cache page. Whatever. There are more than enough caches over here that I don't need to find any more of theirs.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    The cache is in plain sight on one side or the other of the bridge.
    I took the coords in the center.
    SHOOT ME!
    I love these little faces! They're cool!

    .....your log could have said, "Found it, even without corrected coords."

    I just deleted 12 duplicate "sent from my mobile device" logs on Memories of Aefuss #4 (GC1BRC1). I left one log on the page. My next time through the area I will be taking a drive up and checking the cache to make sure the log book is signed. I view the log on the cache page as feedback and a chance to thank the cache owner. Granted, there have been times that I haven't added a lot of notes, for example the big cache run we did on the Stud Mill Rd, but overall I appreciate the personalization. Frankly, it's also how Aefuss taught me to cache--take the time to say thank you and personalize it, it will mean a lot to the cache owner. I can say, without a doubt, I don't like the "sent from my mobile device" garbage. That, to me, is NOT a log.

    We logged some caches today from our phone on the groundspeak app and it duplicated them every time we logged another cache. I had to go back and delete the duplicates and noticed it did the same thing from another cacher so I sent them a PM and they also was using the groundspeak app for their phone. This has only happened the last couple of days. Dont know if its a glitch or what.

    You went back to delete - that is a testiment to being responsible. I am sure the cache owners appreciate it. Glitches do happen.

    I agree, and barbieri you also took an extra minute and actually wrote a note for the caches you found.

    I'm glad you added a link because I had not seen this before. I will probably send an email along to anyone that leaves something like that, asking what they thought of the cache and area and ask them to add that to the log.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Remind me to log any future logs on Mike's caches as "Sent from my home computer."

    I'm sure with a bit of hacking of the phone some of these automated logs could be edited.

    You could make them say "Had a great time at this one, loved the location. nice hide. Great weather to be out. Found this with no trouble. TFTC TNLN." Sure, it's a lot nicer log, but it's still fake and as soon as the personality is removed from logs personality is removed from the game. While either log is a legal find log, I'd hate to see the game go in this direction. So, set a good example!
