WHY NOT WEDNESDAY ~ Thank You For Hiding A Geocache

 Thank you for hiding a Geocache!
 In a game centered on how many “finds” you have, stats geared towards “finds”, badges issued for “finds” in other states and rewards given to those who make the “find”. Not to mention the Holy Grail of Geocaching itself, the coveted FTF - First To Find! 
I ask you!
What does the game do for the hider? 
Issue special badges? How about hider stats, rewards or even recognition? Nope.
And, they have to fight with the reviewer (I do anyway), get special permission and even pay for permits at state parks in some states like PA to put out a decent hide, with a nice hike and a beautiful location.
The hider asks for nothing in return but to receive a cool log, maybe a picture and anything more then “TFTC” will pretty much do.
Like I said, Thank you for hiding a Geocache!

Well said, and it's a big thank you from me as well.

Good point! The favorites feature at least helps a little bit. It's nice to have a cache with a lot of fav points.

Fav points are an amazing addition. It makes finding the awesome caches that much easier in new areas. I rarely have cache runs in new areas that are not stellar because of fav points.

It is such a simple thing, but has huge benefits. It is also one of the few things Groundspeak has gotten right lately.

As a cache owner, the best way to thank me is a good log. The second is by giving the cache a favourite point (if it deserves it, of course).
