Really?! So how do you claim them properly? I remember a lot of people were using photos to claim Challenges when they were around.
Not too difficult.
Read the Visit Instructions.
Some just ask for a photo of the area. Some require a photo OF the waymark.

Some categories will let you log without a photo. BUT. You do need to "Describe your visit" - A decent description, not just "We came, we claim!" (That could be putting off a few cachers, as so many seem to be going for the shortest log possible, and often copy and paste...)

A GPS in the photo is no longer a requirement!

Unfortunate that there is no consistent logging system for Waymarking for all the categories, but usually a photo (of the waymark!) and a reasonable log will do most categories.
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!
