General Caching / Re: Geocaching Log Ratings
« Last post by Griff Grof on March 05, 2019, 05:52:57 pm »
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!

Tried to register for the .au site but had nothing back or does it just happen and you find you can log in?

Can't login but see you have to register on their forum as well, so now waiting for that to be approved!

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?

Maintenance visit to my Crickley Hill caches, so leaving my secret parking area  :o I stopped off to take a drink with camera on timer to get the shot  8)

Now just need to register on the .au site :)
Was going to stop there again myself a couple of weeks back on way back home, in order to get a required photo for an LC on another caching site. Just my bad luck though, on the way up the hill there was a large lorry broken down right at that spot, so there was no way of pulling in  :( I'm sure I'll pass it again though at some point.

One week in, and the current winner is on 515 km. Mine's not doing too bad, 166.73km.

FYI, you can have up to one of each breed in the race (i.e. max of 4 tags). I've released a retriever  :)

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.

'Racing Hounds' and there's no greyhound :o :o :o :o :o ???

Greyhounds, as well as other breeds, were considered but after much discussion we opted for these four, mainly because of the geocaching-related puns (eg retriever, tag to be retrieved the most times).
