  1. Es gibt ja noch eine weitere Umschaltmöglichkeit:

    Auf der (neuen) 'Search Geocaches' Seite ist rechts die Kartenauswahl mit den drei (nutzlosen) Karten: Geocaching, Google Road Map, Google Satellite.
    Das lässt sich wohl nicht ändern.


    Auf der 'Browse Geocaches' Seite kann ich rechts aus der ganzen Liste der (OSM-)Karten auswählen sofern ich links unter 'Set Map Preferences' die 'Leaflet' Auswahl getroffen habe. Sonst erscheinen auch dort nur die Google Map Optionen.

    Ich tendiere zu ASCII bzw Hex.

    Hat da jemand eine Ahnung ?



    Hallo Wolfsrudel1989


    Das Forum ist natürlich nicht dazu da, um Mysteries zu lösen... andernfalls wären die Mysteries ja keine Mysteries mehr...

    Aber ja... das sind Daten, die ganz offensichtlich in hexadezimaler Darstellung aufgeführt werden. Falls Du vermutest, dass das (hexadezimal codierte) ASCII Daten sein könnten, würde ich mal eine Google Suche mit "HEX to ASCII" absetzen. Ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass Da *ganz oben* ein Link erscheint, bei dem man die HEX Daten reinkopieren kann und der dann die Daten in lesbare Zeichen umsetzt (sofern dies wirklich hexadezimal codierte ASCII Daten sein sollten)... ;-)

  3. Thank you for bringing back the 'correct' default sorting for viewing.

    However, there's still a bug when content is loaded dynamically while scrolling down.
    The sequence of the records seems to be correct (sorted by the *user's* "Found on" date when viewing someone else's finds) but the content is *not*.
    The "Found on" date of the user (green in the example snapshot) then changes to the (latest) "Found on" date *of the cache* (red in the example snapshot).

  4. Hmmm... strange things happen.
    It works! It *never* worked for me - not even once! And I tried many, many (many!) times.
    But now it does. Wow. 


    I'm wondering what caused the difference.

    Hope this will last for a while... ?

  5. There is a (undocumented? well hidden?) function when writing a log: Press '@' and you get a list of your friends to choose from. This is a very nice feature to mention somone, including a working link to his/her profile and an automatic 'Someone mentioned you...'-Mail to the referred profile. Nice! :)


    However, the function seems to be quite buggy. 


    • The popup list shows 10 (randomly selected?) friends. That's it.
      I'm pretty sure that - some time ago - it was possible to select additional/other friends by pressing the first letter of their profile name.
      This doesn't work anymore.
    • The function only works once. If you press ESC, it won't popup again.


    Is this just me? 

    Anyone else using this function? (BTW: Is this an officially supported function? Can't find any documentation...)

    So I use .png images to illustrate geological concepts on my EarthCaches. I currently host them on Imgur. If I understand it those will stay. But for the future do I have to make scientific drawings in jpg?


    As far as I understand, you still may use PNG images - but not from Imgur (not allowed) and not from img.geocaching.com (automatic JPEG conversion).
    According to https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=97&pgid=956 you may use Dropbox or  Google Drive to host your PNG image.

    Aha, yes it is a certificate issue. Likewise it could be fixed also by Groundspeak, I think.


    Yes. Definitely an incorrect configuration.

    The 3rd party sites give the same error so again it is probably somehow invalid or incorrect certificate.


    Some of them just do not have HTTPS (geotrowel.me.uk in GC3AK1K). Others do have HTTPS but no own certificate (mattsphotobooks.com in GC7T963 is using the certificate of its hoster wpxhosting.com). There shouldn't be unsecured HTTP connections in 2020 and it's probably a good idea to move this stuff to the geocaching.com servers.

    Failed to load resource: net::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID


    So the issue seems to be the mixed content. Additionally the img.Groundspeak.com server seems not to support https. This is something Groundspeak could fix ;)


    img.Groundspeak.com DOES support HTTPS - but is using a geocaching.com certificate.
    Just change the URL from http://img.Groundspeak.com/.. to https://img.geocaching.com/...

    It can be done for free. Use an adblocker, use Ghostery, use noscript..... I can't remember when I last saw any ad on a website.

    It will make browsing safer too (especially with the noscript add-on).


    Yes, of course... I know...

    It would be better if there were no advertising for PM (or for all). On every website / app that I know, a PM removes the advertisement. Only geocaching.com doesn't do that.

    That's what I mean and therefore the question goes to Groundspeak: How much do I have to pay? +5$? +10$? Seriously!
    Obviously, the current amount is too little...

  10. ...to get rid of this advertising stuff on listings, the dashboard (etc). NOW: Including videos! 


    Is it really necessary to have ads on paid sites ?
    Or is there a secret 'platinum membership' that I'm not aware of...? :blink::ph34r:

  11. What's the sort sequence of the logs in 'Latest activity on your hides' ?
    At first I thought it's by log date (decreasing, most recent logs on top) - but there are a few strange 'jumps' on my page:

    Visited 09 Jul 20
    Visited 07 Jul 20
    Visited 08 Jun 20
    Visited 28 Jun 20
    Visited 20 Jun 20
    Visited 25 Jun 20
    Visited 04 Jul 20

    Or is it by (an invisible) 'last modification date' of the log?

    It seems to me that the clickable area over the geocaching logo is larger than it needs to be and overlaps the text box. It's one continuous linked area with no apparent break.


    You're right. That's it.

  13. It seems that the textbox is (somehow) not properly aligned on the screen.
    I can enter a city after clicking in the lower half of the textbox.
    However, after clicking in the upper half of the textbox, I'm forwarded to the search page mentioned above.


    Chrome 81.0.4044.129 on WIN10

  14. I think a "beta test" mode could be useful for certain types of cache. Perhaps not critical or otherwise high priority, but it could be useful.


    But before it is implemented, I think Groundspeak will need to sort out how to prevent people from turning the "beta test" mode into a defacto method for publishing private caches. In other words, how do we prevent people from using it to create caches that only a handful of friends are allowed to find.


    Do not allow logs on unpublished caches...

  15. Yeah... same issue here. My timezone is GMT+1 but after uploading my field notes today, all times were displayed as GMT+9 (or 8 hours later)

  16. 1) Link "Message this owner" from any cache page does not open converstion to the CO as it did before. It works just like the "Messages" link on the top. I am sure this is not intented to work that way.


    Same result here.

    Using latest Chrome 53.0.2785.143

  17. What I've just seen:


    It never works for me (IE11/Chrome - hand remains visible, not able to click on a cache icon) when I'm in "Search" mode.

    However, it *does* always work, when I'm in "Pocket Queries" mode.


    One click on "Search"... and it's broken again...
