In short, I believe we still need to be considerate of where BITcaches are located. In relation to Munzees (also, generally stickers or laminated placards), I've tended to hear people in other forums or on podcasts seem to indicate that you can pretty much put them anywhere, since there is no container. In fact, some spots may be better suited for a virtual, where nothing physical needs to be placed. Just something to think about, before deciding on the right cache type for a given area.DudleyGrunt wrote:Yeah, I saw that, but guess I was dumbfounded that what was, apparently, just a piece of paper would cause such a stir. If that is the case, then it doesn't bode well for Munzees and BITcaches.Sonny wrote:I had seen some articles that said it was a Geocache, but MANY more that just said it was a Spiritual Goodwill Message.DudleyGrunt wrote:Saw Jeremy's call for a retraction. Anyone know what the "suspicious object" actually was? Was it really just a piece of paper with some "spiritual goodwill" note written on it?
I double checked and the only caches in or immediately around Disneyland (on mulitple sites) are all virtuals. However, there are several Munzees directly in the park.
If a piece of paper with a "spiritual goodwill message" on it can close down the park, why would something like a Munzee not have the potential to cause the same concern.
Even though there is no container, I believe many of the same considerations should be taken into consideration.
