  1. Past hour
  2. The other 2/3rds got a couple at a geocoinfest, but I believe they just came out then ('08). IIRC she wanted more (someone's bd) just a couple years later and couldn't get the site links to work then. Next coinfest may be a good bet, but rarity ups pricing.
  3. Great. Glad that you were able to get it working with the Firefox app. It's odd that the Samsung Internet app doesn't give you the option to choose an app to open the link. If you could get that and select "Always", then it should save that choice and open with that every time. Quite the mystery why your phone isn't giving you that option, but at least you have a workaround now, even though it's not by using the browser you prefer.
  4. Today
  5. Hmm, I have a diamond and a blue one of these in my collection. I didn't get mine here, but anyone see this? http://www.geogems.us/ Sales links to the same broken site but maybe you can get somewhere from what is there.
  6. I tried the users link and get this: Can’t connect securely to this page This might be because the site uses outdated or unsafe TLS security settings. If this keeps happening, try contacting the website’s owner. I'll send a email but have little hope.
  7. As a player of both games I have not encountered any Pokemon GO stops or gyms in cemeteries, but I have geocache placements in a few. Respectfully placed of course, not close to any graves but along the fence on the outside, except for one in a very remote old historic cemetery. It's inside of a wall around the cemetery. I enjoy exploring those places.
  8. Have you tried reaching out to the user who started this topic in 2008? https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/190365-introducing-geogems™/ If these are still available I'd love to purchase one too.
  9. And neither of those containers pictured were what I found at Joshua Tree ... it was a tin, but shorter and larger diameter. Hmm, I didn't look back far enough, looks like, and I did not check the CO's profile either. Just found the last NM. I'm learning....it's interesting tome how it has remained in play with no OM, and the NM log/flag. Maybe because of the lack of DNF's since other cachers keep it going?
  10. the moderator might want to edit on4bam's reply as well
  11. It makes a lot of sense if the CO is trying to alert people who carry supplies to bring some for the cache. When someone replaces the container and/or log the CO can then log an OM to get rid of the NM. One NM does not get the attention of a reviewer. If the cache owner does actually want to visit his cache to replace the log or container, maybe he wants more time. Maybe he doesn't live in the area but vacations there every summer so is hoping to get 6 months of time but wants to let finders know there's a problem by using an NM. All speculation though. Hopefully the OP will come back and tell us why he would prefer to log an NM as opposed to a Disable.
  12. Just a few cemeteries, not an area wide ban, thankfully.
  13. GC4797 - I was going to say that someone needs to post a note telling the cache owner that they can remove the NM with an Owner Maintenance log. Some cache owner's don't realize this, and appreciate the nudge. But the cache owner hasn't logged in since 2011. GC2B56M HIdden July 2010 in the Joshua Tree National Park, near the park sign. First NM Dec 2010 for a broken container. Original container a throwaway ziploc container. See photo. The cache owner never responded to problems. Cache owner hasn't logged in since 2013. Several finders have replaced the container. The second one was another ziploc-style throwaway container that ended up (in 6 months) with a cracked lid and contents swimming in water. Then it became a tin candy tin. Then the tin was was run over. Someone replaced it with another candy tin. See photo. 4 NMs. No response from the owner to any NM. First container: 4th container. 2nd, 3rd and 4th containers were left by finders:
  14. I can't find a seller of Geo Gems. The only google search has a link that won't work. Are these no longer manufactured ? Anyone know who sells them?
  15. Started in Jan 2012, both of us 63. Most cachers in our area seem to be couples with young families, then there's gap to retirees.
  16. Huh? If the CO's trying to duck the issue, why would they post either an NM or a Disable? It makes no sense whatsoever to think a CO will want to call a little attention to his problem with an NM, but not call too much attention to his problem by disabling the cache.
  17. "Lid is broken" was exactly the case I mentioned: yeah, it's broken, and it needs fixed, but here in California it's just not going to rain during the summer, so there's no reason for the CO to run out and fix it in June ever though it's undeniably a problem. Specifically, if the CO doesn't post the NM, it will make perfect sense for someone else to waste their time posting an NM for something the CO already knows about. Besides, even if I'm going to run out and fix it in two days, I still want to flag it in case someone else ends up wanting to go there tomorrow. You're arguing that there's never a case, in practice, where the CO will need to file an NM. Even if that were true -- and it's not -- I'm arguing that it's logically possible for a CO to want to file an NM, so he should be able to. Giving the CO the option costs nothing.
  18. This may be a motivator but is this logical? Now CO does nothing or leave a note instead. Who will benefit in the end? If that was the real reason, the reviewer could be alerted for NM by CO log as easy as NA log entries does. It is just matter of automation, not rocket science.
  19. Yesterday
  20. This appears to be true in my area also and, I would assume, most areas. Caches we own have been found by most (premium) locals. Finds nowadays seem to be from visitors.
  21. I think sometimes the NM gets used by a cache owner because if they post a Disable, it's likely that a reviewer will come along and post a Reviewer Note a month later. If nothing gets done within another month, the cache may be archived by the reviewer. I see evidence of this, in the OP's case. The NM gives a cache owner much more time and may alert a finder to bring along a replacement logsheet and/or container.
  22. I've found a few where there is a NM flag; I look through recent log and see several finds, with no issues listed. I go for them,and have found them in decent shape. I go back through logs and find the flag set (in both my examples) a year or several ago; no OM, no owner intervention, just an NM flag set and finds and DNF's continue (one has several DNF's as it is a bit rricky to find). So these are cases where the NM stands, for years?? GC4797 & GC2B56M
  23. It depends on the particular finder. In most cases they ignore the NM flag. Sometimes I may skip a cache if NM flag is set. What I fear is that this limitation has been made just because it was not known why NM by CO was used. Or maybe it was not intentional at all. Maybe this possibility just disappeared when the NM feature was moved to the new streamlined logging experience.
  24. I didnt't contact GS, I just relogged. Others did, as it seems. BTT: I've just found one webcam cache, and no pose was required. It was fun to look for the place where I'm visible through the webcam and to call a friend telling him "I'm there right now, take a screenshot!".
  25. Geocachers in a dispute here in my home State got geocaches on VDOT property banned. I know Tennessee and South Carolina have Laws to prohibit geocaching in cemeteries, so is this a local or State ban on GPS games in cemeteries?
  26. Around here I've seen some annoyance with Pokemon Go because the behavior of a few players got all GPS games banned from some local cemeteries and caches had to be archived.
  27. Interesting, though for Earthcaches photos are no longer allowed as a logging requirement, which may have influenced GS's decision to side with you in that case.
