  1. In case I forgot to mention it Groundspeak did decline the use of the swastika on the trackable item. Therefore, I will go with the nice suggestion of the leatherman symbol in that section of the trackable coin. I too doubt many of these coins go into the wild but then again that is your choice. I have NOT decided yet to do a non trackable with a decal to replace the leatherman symbol or not. I will let you know on that later.

     

    As far as the "track at geocaching.com" and the actual code, they are being moved to the top "spine" on the coin so when you see the coin fron either side you will see the actual Hindenburg name and the actual ship number on the sides. The bottom, of course, will hve the passenger area and engines on each side of the bottom.

     

    So, speaking on the historical facts, How many survivors of the Hindenburg are still alive? I will let you do the research on that. I doubt if the kids on that fateful day knew anything about any symbol on the tail fins or cared about them then. And was the explosion ever deemed as intentional or an accident?

    PS: FYI, this war was more than 50 years ago. and no mention of the vast number of "Native Americans" that disappeared from earth. But that can be a topic for another discussion as we all know this could go on and on.

     

    I find it ironic that the Swastika drew such fervor and a rejection by GS, while one of the more sought after GC sets in the Civil War series of 10, most of which bear the rebel flag. I, for one would love one of the original design coins to go with my new Titanic coin. This GC is like any other, collect what you like, overlook the rest. As for legality, an owner could clearly state in the GC mission that it is not to travel to certain areas of the world if he/she so chooses. I appreciate your anniversary coins and would prefer the true replica. GS needs to quit trying to re-write history by refusing to acknowledge its existence. The coin was not to commemorate the old Nazi Germany, but rather to memorialize those who lost their lives aboard this "magnificent" airship.

  2. 4.6.0-Update:

     

    Trackables completely broken, inventory is always empty...

     

    No Release-Notes?

     

    It is not working for me either.

     

    *UPDATE: Inside of the Geocaching app, I logged out of my account and back in and trackables are now working.

     

    App was working beautifully on iPad2 until 4.6.0. Now it returns a "no results" and "no geocaches were found" for nearby search. IPhone 3GS finds PLENTY. Tried to reboot, reinstall app, and change user...same no result, My iPad had become my go-to device for impromptu GCing. PLEASE HELP!!

     

    Last update: turned on ignore list,reloaded app, turned off ignore list, reloaded app. All is now working!?!

    UPDATE: checked iPhone version. It is still 4.5.9. Afraid to update it, lest I lose another device!

  3. i do think this is a good thing for GS to look into

    because if all that needs to be said is i thought it was boring so i deleted it

    its going to cause more problems as more people join the game.

     

    i saw nowhere in the "rules" for geocoins that said if you discover a coin at an event instead of finding it in a cache your log could be deleted in the future.

     

    There are No Rules for Geocoins, there is only etiquette and the main etiquette is to move the geocoin. Coins are property, they belong to the owner. no one else - For someone else To change the 'rules' for something that you own is not correct

     

    i agree some what

     

    but what about a tattoo tb, or car tb, or name tag tb or the tb's on shirts

    they are not moved by people but discovered so why would i go in and delete all of the logs

    of people that discovered my tattoo... because then everyone would loose that icon.

    because even when its a tattoo its still just a regular tb that i had that number put on to my arm so technically i could sell that number if i decided too (not sure what good it would do )lol but i could

     

    also you stated that there are no rules for this i think thats what alot of us are saying.

    there needs to be a rule to cover this

    Well for one, TB's Have no real value once activated. they are not the same as a geocoin. but if you sell yours then yes, the new owner should have the ability to delete any logs they want to.

     

    oh and I disagree about rules for geocoins. They are property and no rules should be set down on something you own, and remember there are no guarantees in life. just cause you write something, does not mean it will be there forever.

     

    TBs are not the same as geocoins?? From a collecting/trading standpoint that may be correct, but from a geocaching standpoint, I feel it highlights a point that is being overlooked...they share one unique trait - a tracking number. While the physical trackable (and any intrinsic value it may have) is in fact the sole property of its owner, the tracking number, in essence, is community property that is shared between Groundspeak, the owner and those who have found (discovered, grabbed, etc)the trackable according to established GS rules. At that point the tracking logs become part of the geocacher's unique history.

     

    It is from that perspective that I feel deleting logs is an intrusion onto others' property. If there were a way for a new owner to "clean up" a trackable (of any kind) to make it feel new to him or her without the perceived theft of a portion of someone else's history, I would be all for it. BUT, the current mechanisms on GS do not provide for such a non-invasive cleaning. I am glad that someone has opened this for GS to address and appreciate some of the ideas that have been presented to protect the rights of all parties. Let's continue a productive dialog and find the middle ground where agreement lives.

    And if the log owner did not receive a log deletion notice they would not even be aware of it being archived.

     

    While I do not have a dog in this fight, I have enjoyed those post that are well though-out and clearly conveyed. I do take issue with the above statement because I do keep my stats using GSAK among other tools and would certianly notice if one of my unique trackable "finds" were to suddenly vanish. While I do have several "discovers", I take more joy in actually moving GCs and TBs along their way; The icons are a pleasant bonus.

     

    As for the used car analogy, I agree New vs Used = Unactivated vs Activated. Therefore, deleting the previous logs = rolling back the mileage on the used car to presumably increase its worth.

     

    However, that's a false "worth". The car/coin still has the mileage/history...it's just been hidden.

     

    Exactly my point (and why I used the term presumably). Anyone who pays a little more for an activated "no logs" coin is obviously not thinking clearly, since logs are so easily "rolled-back".

  6. I am a veteran who wound up unemployed for 6 months when the current administration took office. After a long job hunt that took me out of GCing for awhile, I have a great job supporting the network for the Dept of VA; a veteran supporting veterans :P

     

    I had to move and have been unable to sell or rent the former home so things are a bit tight and I have only recently been able to return to my GC love. I went to the local 11-11-11 event and met many local GCers and am excited about getting more involved again. When flying jets, I collected military patches as part of the love, now my GC love virtually requires me to collect coins (they're so purty, u kno'). So far I have taken pics of others' coins as I move them from cache to cache, but a friend gave me a personal coin and I bought one at the 11-11-11 event. I'm hooked on collecting my own now!! PICK ME, PICK ME!!!

  7. Just got my new 400t and did all the updates. I see the same issue of garbled text in the description on a couple cahces. One in particular is Weeping Angel. I, too think it is proably an issue with the description containing a table-formatted puzzle. I used GSAK.

  8. What version of Cachemate are you using. I have 1.3.0 and can see all 10 of the logs I am exporting from GSAK. The export dialog for GPX files lets you specify the number of logs to export to save space as needed.
