    The web maps, both the Search Map & Browse Map, have never not included preview-icons of PMO caches for Basic Members for a long time. Instead they have always included all non-PMO caches.


    On the mobile app, Basic members can see greyed out icons for non-PMO caches that are behind the paywall, due to higher D/T ratings. It doesn't include preview-icons of PMO caches.


    The new search results didn't change that or what is shown on the map. Some of the default filter settings changed, so maybe you could verify whether that causes the difference in what you are seeing.

    That said, it'd be great if you could provide more detail on what you see now vs what you believe to have seen before. 




    Thanks for the explanation.
    The cache I could see greyed-out was indeed a non-pmo higher difficulty.

    We've only stopped being paying members this year (after fifteen years), so it's taking a bit of getting used to.

    Our own owned caches are still PMO so not even visible to us.


  2. I wasn't aware of this change until yesterday.
    Although it's something I thought I wanted (after receiving  nasty comments in a private message from some idiot who had only just discovered caching), I'm not sure I like it

    Someone with 60K+ finds published a couple of events in my notification area yesterday, well outside their usual area.
    They are not a team I know of, and having everything locked down seems very unfriendly.

    Wait, so you can't give zones a specific name, like "lobby" or "church"? Doesn't that get confusing? Or am I missing something? Apologies if I'm barking down the wrong river, I saw the post and had flashbacks to my old programming classes and the importance of good variable names for code documentation.

    I suspect it's to make it harder for the code to be read if it is decompiled. :)

    “zone” is simply the name of a variable that they have declared. You have not declared this variable and thus you are getting that error. 

    You need to replace “zone” with the name of the variable storing the zone you want to adjust. For example, “zoneABC”. 

    Surely 'zone' is the variable passed as a parameter to the function.

    That's right - Geocaching HQ chose not to include this search link on the new Dashboard.


    I suggest customizing the home page search tool for just the way you like it, and then bookmarking the URL for that search.

    I had a set of urls for shortcuts to various searches etc and I wrote a Tampermonkey script to change the main menu links to something useful.
    Unfortunately, the recent change to the way the menu works has completely screwed-up my script! :mad:
    I don't know what was to be gained changing the menu so it is all written dynamically :huh:


  6. 'Each month from January through October, at least 2,020 hosts will be randomly selected from those who opt-in'

    Is it random or are those of us who hosted a 10! Event excluded?
    How many cachers actually applied to host a 20 year Event?
    (just wondering if if worth getting my hopes up each month....)


  7. In order to view a cacher's profile, you have to register. However, there are no checks on the intentions of someone who registers.


    In case anyone is wondering, this was prompted by a nasty message sent to us my someone who registered yesterday. I  have no idea who this person is and I am not happy with just everyone being able to view our stuff and we have deleted all information for the time being.


    Perhaps making the gallery premium member only as well would be a good idea.
