    Error 404 DNF on cache creation pages

    I, too, have been getting (seemngly) random 404 errors this afternoon and evening as I log caches and trackables, upload photos, and activate trackables. I have used the browser's "back" arrow to take me back to the previous screen, (where my entered information is still intact, YAY!), and resubmitting HAS worked. Until the latest, trying to upload a photo to a newly activated trackable as the "default" image on the TB page. That has consistently given me nothing but the 404 error page just like in the screenshot by magpiecottage above. I also saw the runtime error page-using the browser "back" button and resubmitting did work to accomplish whatever it was I was trying to do (save changes to a newly activated TB, I believe). The only thing I have not been able to do is upload a photo to my newly activated TB page. Maybe tomorrow?

    Useless Hints

    Ohhhhhhhh, I feel your pain on that one. Up hear in Redwood Country we have folks who use "at the base of a stump" ... REALLY ... the bloody place has been logged continuously since the 1850's ... stumps everywhere you look.

    Error 404 DNF on cache creation pages

    I am getting "Error 404: DNF" and "Server Error in '/' Application" Runtime error on cache creation pages, the process failing intermittently at different points. Ultimately I have been trying to create a new cache for over an hour in different browsers and still not succeeded as it is failing at different points of the process. I have attached three screenshots (two taken with Google Chrome v72.0.3626.119, one with Firefox v65.0.1, on Win10 PC) showing the errors, time/date and URL of the next page in the "hide a cache" process that I was loading: Error 404 DNF on the planning and sizeratings pages Server Error in '/' Application Runtime Error on loading the description page

    Logging a cache

    If it's the app that is the problem, and not the website, that is smilies are showing up on the website's map but not the app's map, you may need to delete the cache for the geocaching app. - And by that I don't mean the geocache but the cached files associated with the app. You can get there through the application manager on your phone. (Apologies, I don't have more detailed directions to do this on hand at the moment.)

    Logging a cache

    It sometimes takes a day or two for the smilies to show up in the app. I found 5 caches today; they show on the website map as smilies; on the phone app they are still the green icons. The one cache I found testerday is a smilie. It seems it takes the app awhile to sync up with the website. Do they eventually show up on the app map?

    Compass problem

    I hadn't noticed this bug before, but YES, that is indeed the case. I have puzzle, solved and as yet unfound, that shows as a puzzle piece on my application on the phone (a Google Pixel, Android 9, app v. 7.4.0). I tap Navigate, and it shows the distance to the corrected/solved coordinates. When I tap the compass, the "Destination" coordinates are the POSTED coordinates, NOT the solved coordinates. I rarely use the compass, which is why I haven't noticed this before. Oddly, my husband normally DOES use the compass and he has not mentioned this. Hmmmm.... ETA: We both have the same phone, app, and OS versions

    wet logbook?

    Hopefully the cache will have another finder in the next month, or it really will be wet. Many caches are found less than that. If it's a remote cache with no other caches nearby, perhaps for a 100 plus kms even, I would be likely to replace the cache and log. I will now hear screams for doing this, but I did say remote, not where there are many such as in towns. I would not replace it where there are many caches (unless I had an understanding with the CO, as I do with one mostly Australian series - there's a few in other countries too.) If this rare, remote cache was not replaced there would be NO caches in that area. In non remote areas I would at least mention the log was wet, or log a NM.

    I'm experiencing the problem today Feb. 23, 2019. Started today. I'm using Microsoft Edge.

    wet logbook?

    And we still have wet logs (or log books, at times)! If I know the CO and know that I will meet him/her at an event to return the old log if they want it, I will replace the log with s clean, dry one, mention that in my log, and contact the CO to see if they want the old log. Most cases, they don't, especially if it's a soggy wad of mush! If I'm out of my home area, or not familiar enough with the CO to presume to maintain their cache, I will comment in my online log regarding the condition of the cache, and typically log the NM as well. I am more likely to log the NM if others before me have mentioned a wet log or other problem and NOT logged the NM. If there is already a red wrench, I won't add a second. (Does it take two OM's to clear two NM's?)

    What Irks you most?

    I know a few couples who have a single account; their logs typically make it clear if it was one or the other or both caching. I have no problem with that. My only caveat... If (and this is only an if!) a couple were caching separately at the same time, and were to use these finds for ‘dubious’ challenge cache qualification then I’d find that a little disingenuous. Personally, however, the day my other half found her first cache without me (in Vatican City, no less), was the day I set up her separate account.

    I know this is just one of those examples of two nations divided by a common language, and that this is completely normal usage in the US, but it does still irk me! Vive la difference! ;-)

    Which category for this?

    I saw letters like this in the "Letters on hills" category

    wet logbook?

    I avoid finding power trails because I don't enjoy repeating experiences. As far as I understand, the quality is not a factor when you are seeking power trails, right? Anyway, I have accidentally found some power trail caches and they were in a good shape. That is because PET preforms have replaced 35mm film canisters, mostly because of the end of the supply of film canisters due to digital photography.
  21. Bonjour, Après la sélection d'une cache dont les coordonnées ont été corrigée (mystery , multi ..) dans l'application Geocaching , si l'on passe en mode boussole depuis la vue "y aller" , c'est les coordonnées initiales qui sont utilisées par la boussole et pas les coordonnées corrigées. avez-vous ce même bug ? ------------------------------------------------------------ Hello, After selecting a cache whose coordinates have been corrected (mystery, multi ..) in the Geocaching application, if you switch to compass mode from the "go" view, it is the initial coordinates that are used by the compass and not the corrected coordinates. do you have this same bug?

    You are lucky in my neck of the woods I still see plenty of wet logbooks and this will continue to increase because most of them are on unmaintened power trails......

    Cache dans bibliothèque

    Normalement les caches que j'ai vu dans les bibliothèques sont des mystère afin de trouver la référence Dewey. Je ne sais pas si utilisé l'ordinateur à l'intérieur de la bibliothèque est permis. Sinon ça peut être une multi avec une étape à l'extérieur de la bibliothèque.

    Creating a puzzle cache

    I think you got it right. To be sure, I recommend to find at least one puzzle cache before you hide your own. For example, this one. It is quite normal to choose puzzle type when there is problem with the cache. It works two ways. Puzzle caches have less visitors which pays less attention and ordinary muggles have no idea how to find the cache even if they have access to the cache description.

    wet logbook?

    Nothing has changed in 6 years :-) I must admit that nowadays I see wet logbooks less often then before. Containers are smaller but better.

    Cache dans bibliothèque

    It can be a Mystery or Letterbox (needs a stamp). You can not require cacher to write anything more than their name in the logbook but you can always ask them to write some words/lines, just like a virtual or earthcache CO can ask to post a picture.
