Reply To: Are You in DNF Denial?


A little bird has just informed us that our log on FOC 24 was being debated here. As we were not then members of this website we were not in a position to comment until now.

Just to set the record straight about our log on JOC 24.
Normally we would log a DNF in these circumstances. We have logged hundreds of DNFs on various caches that we haven’t found for one reason or another.

In this case, there was subsequent correspondence with the CO and they gave us permission to log as a find.

I note that after our log on March 15th, 2013, Hobo and Miss had exectly the same experience as us and after discussion with the CO they were also given permission to log as a find which they have done.

I think it is reasonable that if a CO feels that the reason that the log was not signed was that the cache failed in some way they should be able to offer a find. In our experience some COs are generous in this way, others not.
