  1. Several new caches, including one of mine, were published this morning at approximately the same time. They were in my notification range, and by rights, I should have received notifications they were published; except for two of them, I did not. No issues with my email otherwise. I found out a bit later that another local cacher had the same issue — he received only notifications for the same two that I did. Do we know of any bug going on that would cause this?

  2. Still having issues. When I posted my last log, got the "something went wrong" error message, now my profile count (10,982) shows correctly, but on the dashboard page and in the top stat bar, it's missing one.


  3. This, exactly.


    My comment to this new streamlined dashboard is easiest to demonstrate with two images.






    I think these two versions are intended for two different purposes. The first one shows many interesting details at a glance. The second just looks nice.


    I understand the need for simplified desing for simplified users. This problem has been addressed in many professional products by user selectable novice/advanced filter. At Geocacing.com one could expect the choice to be based on paid membership. The new one is good for basic members and the old one for premium members.

  4. SO much wasted space — really dislike the big icons; it's infinitely better for me to be able to quickly see a few "recently viewed" logs, rather than a plethora, and then my last 30 days of logs in a relatively compact space. I have no interest in a big list of my friends' logs; better to use that space for my past 30 days.


    Can't even use the "logs" link — it looks like it's trying to load every log I ever wrote and ends up locking up my browser. There was so much NOT wrong with what you had.

  5. I don't know whether you're using the No-Script add-on for Firefox (and it may apply to other add-ons), but if certain scripts are blocked on the source page (where the image is stored), it won't show up on the cache page whether add-ons are disabled for geocaching.com or not.

  6. I don't have a problem with the message center per se, but I find its design for a full computer screen more than baffling. A huge field of wasted space and a tiny window in which to type the message, so you can't see the whole thing at once. Seems awfully wonky.

  7. I'm having the exactly the same issue — it happens with Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. For a while the GC website runs fine, and then, snap... logs, map, PQs, etc, all disappear, as others have described. Usually, when I totally shut down the computer and bring it back up, the site is okay again... for a while. Clearly, this is not just an issue with a few users and their own computer settings. I did first notice this occurring about the same time as a very large automatic Windows update. Whether that has any bearing on the problem, I do not know. Also — GC.com seems to be the only site affected. I haven't seen any other Javascript issues on other sites.

  8. I for one liked the old map hyperlink. The default view as it is now is zoomed in far too close to see anything in context around the cache. I liked being able to get the location at a glance on the old map, rather than have to manipulate it to get a decent feel for the cache's surroundings... So yes, I'll just get used to using the link in the left-hand column.

  9. I'm having the same issue. I HOPE it's not intended, as it's a not what one would consider a useful feature.


    When I go to a cache page and DBL click on the lower map it will not open up to show other surrounding caches.



    not sure if that's intended or not, but you can always use the "Geocaching.com Google Map" link.

  10. Yep, for me, PQs are three-quarters of the reason to have a premium account. A year ago, issues such as this were rare. I'd like to get back my bang for the buck.




    The query engine is obviously screwed up - when do people start getting pissed of that the service we are paying for has not been working correctly for 2 days now.


    To me its not the fact that its broken but the lack of COMMUNICATION from TPTB acknowledging a problem and/or they are even looking into it and an estimate at when they think it will be fixed.


    But communication is key in any type of relationship. This relationship isn't going to well between client/customer and yes Groundspeak is a business and not a hobby.

  11. Request for assistance = solicitation. That's no reflection or judgment on whatever medical issues one might have, nor is it an indication of anyone "not caring." Simply a statement of fact. It's a violation of that ToS section and needs to be respected.

    I took a look at the Terms of Use and the Guidelines and see nothing in there that violates the rules with my request for assistance.


    How about 4(e):

    4. Use of Publishing Tools and Forums


    (e) Upload, post or otherwise transmit any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of solicitation.


    You're soliciting donations.


    It is a request for assistance....jeez...I mean is that so difficult. I guess the bottom line is my follow geocachers don't give a rats [butt] about another cacher. I disagree that it is a 'solicitation'. I have no interest in making any personal game, but simply want the caches to remain.


    I especially find that interesting if you think that is solicitation when there is a whole series of travel bugs (the diabetes ones) solicit which I supported!
