  1. A friend of mine was caching from 2008 to 2010. Now she would like to recover her username, but can't find it! Could it have been deleted perhaps, after a long period of inactivity?

     

    Is there a time limit on old/unused usernames?

     

    Cheers,

  2. While this is definitely a problem that will need to be fixed, there are better ways to accomplish what you want. If you're wanting to discover a large number of trackables, the fastest way would be to use one of several websites that can do it all automatically. All you have to do it feed it a list of tracking codes, the date, and the text of your log, and the website will automatically log them all. I believe there are several such websites, but a couple of examples that I'm more familiar with are Log Them All or the "Discover trackables" feature on project-gc.com.

     

    I've sometimes used your last-mentioned, project-gc, but in my logs I like to differentiate between nametags, geocoins and TBs, making them more personal. Doing it the 'slow' way you also get to see the trackable's page, where you can get reminders of who was actually behind the badge, or who the coin and TB owner was. If you just take photos of code lists like often happens at events, especially Megas, then log them en masse on one of those sites, it comes down to being just about the numbers! As they say here, everyone caches in their own way!

     

    Thanks for taking this up! I look forward to seeing it fixed!

  3. When catching up with trackables you've seen but still haven't logged, you log one for say last week Tuesday, when you enter another code, the "Post a New Log" page shows the current date again instead of last Tuesday's date! Earlier it showed the date you chose for logging the previous TB! If you've still got dozens of trackables to log after an event, it's a pain to have to keep changing the date back to the day of the event.

     

    This used to work fine earlier! I don't know when it changed, but it sure was useful to have it show the same date! I hope you can reinstate this feature!

  4. And here's my English version! :) (I've clarified the destination by adding Lapland and Finland - I hope that's ok?)

     

    Weihnachtsmann:

     

    Somebody has hidden my sleigh, so I have to travel without it back to my village in Rovaniemi, Lapland (northern Finland). I would really like to get back in time for Christmas 2012 to the cache "Rest Stop Santa Claus Village" GCK2BQ. Thank you and best wishes for 2012!

     

    Für den Schlitten:

     

    He's disappeared! Has Father Christmas left for home without me? Would you please help me get home by 24.12.2012 to the cache "Rest Stop Santa Claus Village" GCK2BQ? Thanks and best wishes for 2012!

  5. Hi VirtKitty,

     

    I'm a Brit living in Helsinki, and it's always interesting to meet cachers from other countries, exchange stories, talk about hides, swap coins and bugs. If you manage to get an event set up for October 5 or 6, count me in!

     

    Meanwhile, here's a good list of Helsinki caches:

    Caches for tourists in Helsinki

     

    It may not be up to date with the newest caches that have appeared recently.

     

    Cheers,

  6. Meinasin kätköttää Vihdin korkeimman paikan mutta alueella onkin jo purkki ;) Listalle voisi varmaan lisätä kuitenkin, paikka on siis Rokokallio ja koordinaatit N60° 29.399' E24° 28.664', paikalla oleva purkki on GC1647F Rokokallio

     

    Entäs Männistönmäki, onko se Vihdin seutua? Sen korkeus näyttää olevan pikkasen Rokokalliota korkeampi.

     

    Koordsit on suunnilleen N 60° 29.638 E 024° 25.332.

  7. I clicked the 'Send to GPS' button, and it said ' Successful' or something similar, but then how do I find that cache information in my GPS? It's not listed by cache name, alphabetically.

     

    Thanks!

    Edit:

    Okay, I worked it out: the cache is listed by its code number, GCxx1Ax or whatever.

  8. Today I've received 3 LOG messages which date back to March and April.

     

    One says:

     

    You are receiving this email because this listing is on your watch list. Visit the web site to change your watchlist settings.

     

    Location: Finland

    <Geocacher (name changed by me!)> posted a note for The Helsinki Fair Center (Traditional Cache) at 3/1/2008

     

    Log Date: 3/1/2008

    a

     

    This cache wasn't on my watchlist back then, and the entry was a "Found it" with a full sentence of text, not a Note with just "a" as the message!

     

    Another erroneous message reads:

     

    You are receiving this email because you are the owner of this listing.

     

    Location: Finland

    <Geocacher (name changed by me, but same as previous!)> posted a note for Pasila Fire Station (Traditional Cache) at 3/1/2008

     

    Log Date: 3/1/2008

    a

     

    The third says so-and-so found Pasila Fire Station, with the correct sentence quoted from his log on 27 April. As it's my own cache, I received that message back when it was posted, so something's going wrong with the system, somewhere.

     

    Anyone else getting similar error messages?

  9. If you are planning to go to Stockholm, Sweden, in the near future please do NOT bring any trackables with you. There is currently a very peculiar thief loose in the city. He has stolen heaps of coins and TB:s and left a note in their place

     

    Does he sign the logs of those caches he's visited? Has anyone tried to trace him?

  10. As a reward/ thank you gift/ sweetener, we would be glad to drop one of our unactivated coins for your personal collection if you would like.

    Thanks,

    Dick and Nancy of

    Basswood Bend

    Traverse City Michigan, USA

     

    That would be kind! I still quite new to geocaching and haven't owned any TBs yet. We could email to finalise the details. Meanwhile, you might get your travel bug into Tervasaaren kuuset, Helsinki (GC168BK) if it's not too big (the name means Tar Island spruces, which should help find the cache!).

     

    Cheers,

  11. Some caches have been placed after that list was made, and the list also includes micros.

     

    Here are some caches (traditionals mostly, some of which are on that list) in downtown Helsinki that should be big enough to take a geocoin (no micros):

     

    Helsinki Monopoly: Korkeavuorenkatu (GC11K0X)

    (needs a screwdriver or other similar tool!)

     

    Halkolaituri,Helsinki (GC16T5T)

  12. [Olisikohan Suomen ladun jäsenenä mahdollista vuokrata edullisesti joku tila? Ajattelin pitää Itä-Helsingissä kevättalvella uuden geokätköilyn epävirallisen alkeiskurssin...

     

    Jos saat sellaisen pystyyn, niin ilmoittaudun oppilaaksi!

  13. Tuon Hauhon kätkön voi joku muu tehdä minun puolestani, mutta jos kukaan ei halua, niin saataisipa olla, että itse saisin purkitettua paikan ensi kevään lopussa.

     

    Eli siis jos haluat kätköttää Hauhon nollapisteen, niin OLE HYVÄ!

     

    Joo, oli puhetta siitä, että minä sitten voisin kätköttää Hauhon nollapisteen, kun käyn Hauholla ehkä useammin kuin Stone'5. Itse kätkösivun kuvaus on tekeillä (GC-koodi annettu) mutta piilopaikka ei vielä ehditty valita. Toivottavasti saan sen tehty ensi vuoden alussa, viimeistään talviloman aikana.

     

    No niin, nyt tuli tehty: Hauhon nollapisteellä on GC18262: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC18262

     

    Harmitti vähän, että ei löytynyt sopivaa paikkaa isommalle purkille kuin mikrolle! :laughing:
