Geocaching Log Ratings
« on: January 10, 2019, 09:54:16 am »
You can now rate geocache logs based on their story and usefulness.

What do you think? Hopefully it will encourage better quality logs.

Edit to add: odd, they only appear on some cache listings, and not on others.

Another edit: seems to be limited to certain countries, all caches in Norway seem to show it.

Thanks for highlighting this. This is the first I have heard about it. Was there a GC blog post on this, or did you hear about it from somewhere else?

Have you seen any caches listed in other countries other than Norway that have this feature on the logs?

I just noticed it when looking at a Norwegian cache. Caches in Canada also have this feature. I think there are a couple of other places too.

Interestingly, the new version of the Cachly app (released last week) includes these log ratings for all caches everywhere... wonder if they’re about to roll it out worldwide on the website?

Hope not, it looks bulky and I don’t really think many people would use it. But it’s good that they’re encouraging quality logs!
