    Default Blank logs

    Just got a log, kind of, from a cacher that registered today. It was blank.

    I usually don't care much about logs, but I did not think blank was possible.

    With the extremely limited info provided in their profile and the strange arrangement of the finds today, I'm suspicious.

    Default So I see...

    Looks like a case of someone new who just doesn't know. Everything doesn't have to be an ulterior motive you know. They did the same on another cache and the third log was just a short statement that a trackable was missing.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    My guess these are from people logging via phone - the default log used to say something like "Logged from my android phone", but I am guessing they found a way or the app has been re-written to strip that out now. That's progress!
    I know if I had to write my logs with my phone, they'd be shorter or empty too.

    Used to be when logging through a web page, there had to be something for text in there, not sure if that is still the case or not. Let me see...

    EDIT: I was right, you can't make a log containing no text through a web browser and logging on the cache page. A space will not work either. So if you're logging that way, you need a period or a smiley or some visible character. So any blank logs Are probably through a phone.

    I also checked if a person could log a cache through GSAK using the new API access without any text in the log, and it can be done there as well.

    I sent them an email saying welcome and asked about the logs. We will see.
