              Ok, here's another angle.  This cacher is obviously new.  Maybe they don't even know what an earthcache is, or even how to contact the owner to submit the answers.  They're probably caching on a phone, and it's not an easy thing to figure out.

              I wouldn't want one of this person's first experiences with caching to be that someone deleted his log.  I would err on the side of generosity.

              That's just my two cents.

                In cases like these, however, folks are jumping into the game, doing little to learn the nuances of it, and we have no way to contact them to help them along.  Perhaps taking a step such as a deleting a log may get their attention and create an opportunity to communicate with them, welcome them to the game, and perhaps teach them something.

                            Hi Barb, when I've had newbies post a found at my Earthcache, I send them a note explaining that they must fulfill the requirements, so I'm deleting their log until they send me the answers. (Very politely worded, of course) I welcome them to re-log the find once they send me the answers. I also welcome them to the hobby and may include a link to an upcoming event.

                                As an old person who just completed a couple of Earth Caches, let me say that I may not have done all of the things necessary because the print was too small on the screen and / or my attention span decreases with the number of things I am supposed to do and I suffer from dehydration-induced dementia.

                                Could it be caching on a phone and they hit the wrong GC. Reading, sounds like they logged the wrong GC to me. Another possibility... to consider, after all they are just starting out, earthcaching seems rather a far stretch for most newbies to jump on board right out of the gate.

                                  Hi Barb, when I've had newbies post a found at my Earthcache, I send them a note explaining that they must fulfill the requirements, so I'm deleting their log until they send me the answers.

                                      Could it be caching on a phone and they hit the wrong GC. Reading, sounds like they logged the wrong GC to me. Another possibility... to consider, after all they are just starting out, earthcaching seems rather a far stretch for most newbies to jump on board right out of the gate.

                                        I guess you could leave a note on the logs after deleting to remind people to send answers soon after logging, if not before. Hopefully they will come back to look or contact you after the deleted log.

                                        It's not the 'they haven't done the earthcache correctly' that's the problem (for me) here -- it's "I could delete their log, but can't tell them why/give them fair warning."

                                        Hi Barb, when I've had newbies post a found at my Earthcache, I send them a note explaining that they must fulfill the requirements, so I'm deleting their log until they send me the answers. (Very politely worded, of course) I welcome them to re-log the find once they send me the answers. I also welcome them to the hobby and may include a link to an upcoming event.
                                         
                                        By the way, have you seen this?

                                          Anyway. I'll probably check again in a couple days and see if they've activated their email.
                                          And then decide what I'll do.

                                          Hi Barb, when I've had newbies post a found at my Earthcache, I send them a note explaining that they must fulfill the requirements, so I'm deleting their log until they send me the answers. (Very politely worded, of course) I welcome them to re-log the find once they send me the answers. I also welcome them to the hobby and may include a link to an upcoming event.
                                           
                                          By the way, have you seen this? 
                                          Scott and I are planning on attending!

                                          Yes ... but the instructions ARE spelled out.
                                          Not fulfilling the requirements is like not finding the container but just getting to gz.
                                           
                                          Apparently no one knows these folks (which is not surprising, but I had to try).

                                          Could it be caching on a phone and they hit the wrong GC. Reading, sounds like they logged the wrong GC to me. Another possibility... to consider, after all they are just starting out, earthcaching seems rather a far stretch for most newbies to jump on board right out of the gate.

Granted I was with my son who had a at least one hundred caches under his belt at the time, never the less it was my first cache.

                                            Just making a joke. Some earth caches so seem pretty difficult to understand what they want. If somebody deleted my finds, I probably wouldn t notice.

                                              As an old person who just completed a couple of Earth Caches, let me say that I may not have done all of the things necessary because the print was too small on th e screen and / or my attention span decreases with the number of things I am supposed to do and I suffer from dehydration-induced dementia.

                                                But you HAVE to make the attempt.  You do agree on that, yes?

                                                Could it be caching on a phone and they hit the wrong GC. Reading, sounds like they logged the wrong GC to me. Another possibility... to consider, after all they are just starting out, earthcaching seems rather a far stretch for most newbies to jump on board right out of the gate.

                                                  Just making a joke.  Some earth caches so seem pretty difficult to understand what they want. If somebody deleted my finds, I probably wouldn't notice.  Anyway, I view it as the journey, not the numbers, so just getting there was the goal.  Kinda.

Some do.

Russ contacted them and said we can work something out for the smiley. I don't know what the status is for that.
                                                     
                                                    His two earthcaches in Arizona are particularly prone to the logs with no emails. Don't know what's up with that -- but it's clear that some folks are pretty rudimentary at instructions!

                                                    Just making a joke.  Some earth caches so seem pretty difficult to understand what they want. If somebody deleted my finds, I probably wouldn't notice.  Anyway, I view it as the journey, not the numbers, so just getting there was the goal.  Kinda.

                                                    Could it be caching on a phone and they hit the wrong GC. Reading, sounds like they logged the wrong GC to me. Another possibility... to consider, after all they are just starting out, earthcaching seems rather a far stretch for most newbies to jump on board right out of the gate.

                                                    Message 25 of 26 , May 9, 2014

                                                      I don’t own any earth caches or virtual caches either so I cannot speak to this personally, but based on an what I observed nearly two years ago with a couple of virtual caches at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon both owned by the same person, I can support the notion that there are some people who just do not get the concept of these types of caches in general. I had visited both of these virtual caches, logged them and submitted the requisite email to the CO. They were grand places to visit. J Within a month after logging them I was surprised to notice (because they were still it my list of items logged in the last 30 days) that they had been archived. Being curious as to why I visited the cache pages on the chance that they harbored an explanation in the logs. They did. The CO had archived them, he said in the archiving log on one of them:

                                                      Too many people not meeting the requirements to log this cache. It is incredible how many cannot understand the instructions and want to log the cache with no verification, or with pictures taken anywhere in the canyon. The requirement for a picture which includes the sign at the point, or the alternative info in lieu of a picture has been a major ongoing problem for us and we have decided to archive this cache permanently.”

                                                      So, Barb, I have to conclude that this phenomenon is not an isolated occurrence directed at you or limited to central Texas but that it appears to be widespread, if not yet epidemic or pandemic.

                                                      I am not suggesting that caches be archived as a remedy to this situation, but if a cache becomes more popular as it appears those owned by Russ in Arizona are, then one can probably expect to see more failures to comply. It appears to be just a part the experience of being the owner of this type of cache.

                                                      Barb, I applaud your diligence in using your resources to try to get in contact with the perpetrators of this ‘crime’, thank you for being a conscientious cache owner.

They just lot 'em and they're good. They think. And we patiently send them the "earthcaches are a special sort of cache" explanation email. Some still don't respond. Some do.

                                                      Bless their hearts, we had a German couple lose their notes for one of Russ'. They simply entered a note. Russ contacted them and said we can work something out for the smiley. I don't know what the status is for that.

                                                       

                                                      His two earthcaches in Arizona are particularly prone to the logs with no emails. Don't know what's up with that -- but it's clear that some folks are pretty rudimentary at instructions!

                                                      Just making a joke.  Some earth caches so seem pretty difficult to understand what they want. If somebody deleted my finds, I probably wouldn't notice.  Anyway, I view it as the journey, not the numbers, so just getting there was the goal.  Kinda.

                                                      Could it be caching on a phone and they hit the wrong GC. Reading , sounds like they logged the wrong GC to me. Another possibility... to consider, after all they are just starting out, earthcaching seems rather a far stretch for most newbies to jump on board right out of the gate.

                                                        I don’t own any earth caches or virtual caches either so I cannot speak to this personally, but based on an what I observed nearly two years ago with a couple of virtual caches at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon both owned by the same person, I can support the notion that there are some people who just do not get the concept of these types of caches in general. I had visited both of these virtual caches, logged them and submitted the requisite email to the CO. They were grand places to visit. J Within a month after logging them I was surprised to notice (because they were still it my list of items logged in the last 30 days) that they had been archived. Being curious as to why I visited the cache pages on the chance that they harbored an explanation in the logs. They did. The CO had archived them, he said in the archiving log on one of them:

                                                        Too many people not meeting the requirements to log this cache. It is incredible how many cannot understand the instructions and want to log the cache with no verification, or with pictures taken anywhere in the canyon. The requirement for a picture which includes the sign at the point, or the alternative info in lieu of a picture has been a major ongoing problem for us and we have decided to archive this cache permanently.”

                                                        So, Barb, I have to conclude that this phenomenon is not an isolated occurrence directed at you or limited to central Texas but that it appears to be widespread, if not yet epidemic or pandemic.

                                                        I am not suggesting that caches be archived as a remedy to this situation, but if a cache becomes more popular as it appears those owned by Russ in Arizona are, then one can probably expect to see more failures to comply. It appears to be just a part the experience of being the owner of this type of cache.

                                                        Barb, I applaud your diligence in using your resources to try to get in contact with the perpetrators of this ‘crime’, thank you for being a conscientious cache owner.

They just lot 'em and they're good. They think. And we patiently send them the "earthcaches are a special sort of cache" explanation email. Some still don't respond. Some do.

                                                        Room for one more thought on this one?  Is there any chance this person was with another cacher who might have answered the questions for BOTH of them?  I always send answers for both Footnotes coach and myself, and sometimes CO's don't catch that I included him in my email.

                                                        Bless their hearts, we had a German couple lose their notes for one of Russ'. They simply entered a note. Russ contacted them and said we can work something out for the smiley. I don't know what the status is for that.

                                                         

                                                        His two earthcaches in Arizona are particularly prone to the logs with no emails. Don't know what's up with that -- but it's clear that some folks are pretty rudimentary at instructions!

                                                        Just making a joke.  Some earth caches so seem pretty difficult to understand what they want. If somebody deleted my finds, I probably wouldn't notice.  Anyway, I view it as the journey, not the numbers, so just getting there was the goal.  Kinda.

                                                        Could it be caching on a phone and they hit the wrong GC. Reading, sounds like they logged the wrong GC to me. Another possibility... to consider, after all they are just starting out, earthcaching seems rather a far stretch for most newbies to jump on board right out of the gate.
