Most have under 400 finds (but not all). I do check how many finds the cacher has and see if they have found Earthcaches before as well as check the logs of any they have done to see if they logged those correctly. Then I contact them and explain how Earthcaches work if needed or remind them to send me more information or the photo...then only if they do not contact me or they refuse to send the information do I delete their find after a week or so.

Holy Cow My Iowa EC has been racking up deleted logs! People cannot seem to get the pic uploaded there. I'll bet I have deleted nearly a dozen logs now (for no picture) between my various EC's. And you wonder why I have been creating EC's only to give them away...


Hey LB7.. are you finding that these are Newbees not e-mailing or putting photos on??? Or is it a combination of both??

That is more than fair, I think!! Even my good caching buddies give me grief and say, "Oh.. you probably MAKE me actually send the info. LOL Darn Tootin'!! Fair is fair. Besides....GOD forbid people actually LEARN something! ROFLMABO Laughing I love giving my buddies a hard time Very Happy

I have had very good responses on my only EC (in Wausau). I did have one person log a find without emailing me recently. I waited a week to give the person time. I emailed them asking for answers. Waited another week - no response. I went to the cache page to delete their log and found it was gone! They must have deleted it themselves.

I have a couple of ideas for ideas for more EC's near me, but haven't gotten around to doing them. When I first did mine, it was the only EC within 50 miles. Since then Bandits created three new EC's near me that I still need to go out and do.

When I put out my first there were NONE, then someone beat me to having the very first. I am still trying to get Two Creeks Buried Forest reinstated, but the WDNR guy STILL has not responded and if he did I probably fell intp the tho9usands of spam mail I get and got deleted Sad

Here is a copy of a note I sent to one of the finders of my Rain Garden.

Howdy doo.

We are the owner of the earthcache. "Rain Garden"

I want to thank you for stopping and to remind you of the requirement to post a picture to you log.
I know how easy it is to forget in the daily business of living. So please take this as a friendly reminder.

Thanks again.

Rose and the thorn.


Lets see if that works.

That is a very nice reminder....

Lately I have been getting a lot of people who claim that they cannot upload their pics to the GC site. When pressed they send them to me personally, at which time I post a note on the EC page stating that I received the pictures and that the requirements have been met.

Good point. I'll keep that in mind.
