Aanbevolen berichten

Geocaching.COM heeft een aanpassing gedaan op hun website: Hide a geocache page.


We have been working on several updates and improvements to the Hide a geocache page.
There are several goals we wanted to achieve with the improvements we are making to the page. Given reviewer and player feedback on the cache hiding process we hope to:


  • Improve the messaging and links on the page to increase understanding of the hiding rules. 
  • Increase awareness of quality cache hiding.
  • Meet the needs of players and hiders who are in different phases of their hiding journey. For this page, the three groups we focused on, to start with, are players with existing hides, players with no hides and 20+ finds, and players with no hides and 0-19 finds.
  • Encourage players with less than 20 finds to find more caches before hiding their first cache.


What’s new:

  1. All previous functionality remains. We have updated the design and formatting to improve page content and usability. 
  2. The “smart” video that displays for players is no longer a header banner. This was confusing for players and we have moved it to a standalone video element. If a geocacher is new to hiding caches, it will display the beginner Hiding a Geocache video. If they have previously hidden caches, it will display the video for Making a Favorite point-worthy geocache.
  3. There is now a “smart” welcome banner. Players who have found more than 20 geocaches will see buttons to begin new geocache or Event Cache listings right at the top of the page. Players who have less than 20 finds will be encouraged to find more geocaches, while still being able to learn about cache hiding and start new listings lower on the page. 
  4. We have expanded the instructions for how to hide a cache from three steps to eight. New steps are in bold:
    1. Find geocaches to get inspired
    2. Read the guidelines
    3. Take the hider quiz
    4. Pick a unique location and get accurate coordinates [Previously Hide your cache] 
    5. Prepare a quality container [Previously Hide your cache] 
    6. Create your cache page and submit for review [Previously Submit your cache for review].
    7. Communicate with your reviewer
    8. Maintain your geocache
  5. We have included more links to content that geocachers have told us they want easy access to when planning a hide.
  6. We have added a direct link to the planning map.
  7. We have added links to inspirational hiding resources.
  8. Links to Shop Geocaching hiding-related merchandise and international distributors.
