Today I had a DNF, but came back and noticed on the top bar that a status was "Planned" by another user. I use a GPS and not my phone so didn't have those deets out in the field. The obvious answer is that they had found it, but perhaps not logged. My question is, what is the etiquette if someone has a "planned" status? Can you still search or do they have right of way and if so, what it the timing on a "planned". No biggie and I'll definitely check next time, but I'd hate to steal someone's find! :)

(I hope I'm not repeating this, but I went through about 10 pages and also searched and couldn't find an answer. :)

No etiquette, it just means it's on someones to-do list.

Cool, thanks for the reply!! But what if it's a moveable (as was in this case)? Does it just mean they'll get it on the next move if you get there first?

He is still there too. We had to use the hint which helped us realise GZ only put you in the vicinity (in both area AND height - there's an extra hint so you don't have to go through the entire area 3 times like us). We left him there as I had no room in my luggage.
