  1. I doubt deletion is really an option. A visit can't be purged that easily. A cache owner cannot dictate this. If a cache owner deletes logs for not using email instead of the message center, they will get restored by HQ if a cacher complains. I prefer email as a communication vehicle, but would never consider deleting logs if answers to my earthcaches were sent via the MC.
  2. I look forward to these changes. The profile is a bit of a mess now, and really needs a refresh.
  3. Your first link is a knowledge book, and all the links open up new chapters. The second link is a knowledge chapter, and all the links on that page open up a "page" in the chapter, but each "page" only loads in the content of it via ajax, so a right click doesn't work. Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one who can see this problem. Not sure I'd say it's a "problem", as it's a fairly common way of loading content in so the entire pages doesn't have to be reloaded. But I will confirm the behavior you are seeing.

  5. And again removing functionality for desktop users. No print (and read) friendly view anymore of whole chapters. As an employee of a major printer manufacturer, I thank you for your support. Please continue printing everything you can ... email, pages from CNN, cache pages, etc ... But I concur with Nate wondering about the use case here. I can't imagine ever wanting to print out the help pages, when now you have "point of need" access at your desktop or your mobile. I'll disagree with Nate on hot cocoa as the beverage of choice.
  6. I have no desire to see dead deer carcasses listed as virtuals, or random shoes in trees being listed. There's a category for pretty much anything you want on Waymarking.com if you really want to "hide" something or list a webcam.
  7. Yes, no problem with it getting posted. It seems the posts of the canned text go through fine, at least in all the cases I've seen. I'd just like to edit it before posting though.
  8. I logged a NA on a cache I couldn't find yesterday, as there was a string of DNFs and the owner hasn't logged into the site in 7 months. After selecting the "Needs maintenance" link and then selecting "Needs archived" I would have expected that the text for "Needs maintenance" would have been changed to reflect what I selected, but it didn't. After composing my DNF log I wasn't positive that I selected "Needs archived" so I had to click it again to be sure. Can the text be changed or added to in order to reflect the selection made? Seems odd not to show that.
  9. I haven't seen that, it might be a unique problem to your configuration. You should post your OS version and browser/version and perhaps somebody here could help.
  10. Let's wait and see. It's only been about a week, and I wouldn't expect any sort of daily or even weekly releases.
  11. (moved this post from another thread) I think having a streamlined process for reporting issues so users don't have to post an additional log is a good thing. I've seen many people post in the forums confused asking "How come when I posted my needs maintenance note my find count doesn't go up?" Those of course are always new players not understanding the logging process. Most others have learned that there is no automatic log of a find when you post a needs archived or needs maintenance note (as it should be!) As an experienced cacher, I would like this streamlined process as well with a minor tweak or two. It would be nice to post my find or DNF with my usual description (which has been minimal lately), and separately report any issues, and do this with a single log action. Something like the following would be nice. When I select the "needs maint" link, I get prompted for a maint type, the link changes text to match what I selected, and a new text box appears where I can list out the problem with the cache. This now gives HQ what I think they are looking for with the single user action, and it separates out the activities into separate logs making it easier for cachers (players, owners, reviewers) to see issues.
  12. You can add detail. Simply: 1. Log a note 2. Click the needs maintenance 3. Select the type (such as other) 4. Enter your note, which may just be "." if you wanted to add detail to your NA/NM note 5. Click Post 6. Scroll down and find your NM or NA note 7. Click on "Edit Log" 8. Click the pencil 9. Now put the information in the note you wanted to earlier 10. Submit it 11. Click the cache name to go back to the cache page 12. Find your "write note" message originally created 13. Click "edit log" 14. Click the red trash can 15. Click "Yes" Easy-peasy. Just a few more steps than before.
  13. This was one of my immediate concerns. Everything necessary is hidden. Why? What purpose is served by this compact design? Wonder if something changed since last night, or if something displays differently with my different computers. Now the date has the drop down "V" indicator next to it. Before it was just a date and the "V" icon would display only when I clicked on it.
  14. Click the existing selected option to unselect it. Yeah, that wasn't working last night on the computer I was on. Selecting the "selected" option kept it selected, and I couldn't get it unselected. I'll have to try and reproduce that.
  15. It was not intuitive at all to me that the date was something I could click on. In my browser it just looks like text until I hover or click on it. Can this be changed to make it look selectable?
  16. After clicking on "Needs maintenance" and selecting an option, there is no way to unselect it. So if I type in my log, then accidentally click the "Needs maintenance" text, I have to refresh the page and lose my log in order to submit it? Or is there some way to unselect this after it's been selected?
  17. You can, but you will have to go back and edit the boilerplate text that was created after you submit your find in order for it to be useful to the cache owner or reviewer.
  18. A cacher found a puzzle cache of mine today, logged a find with a needs maintenance canned note posted from the new logging page. They expected someplace to enter the issue after selecting the option, but there was none. So they had to follow up with a message in the message center, and I'll have to follow up with a note on the cache page so others know the issue. This is not as intuitive as before and causes more work for caches and cache owners. Please allow people to edit the canned note.
  19. From the release notes, it would appear opting out is a short term option. So it doesn't make sense to make this an option.
  20. I posted the below in the older release thread. Reposting here where it belongs: The log page is a bit slower to bring up than the old one. I measure a pretty consistent 3400ms on the new page vs 2200ms on the old page. It's a bit unsatisfying to see the spinning circle while the page is loading resources or doing some ajaxy thing. Will performance measurements be taken and acted on? Thanks!

  22. I assume you know this, but the help center article is now wrong. It refers to the helpful formatting buttons that are no longer there. The "button" column in the help article should be removed so people know to format using wiki-ish style formatting.
  23. I'm assuming part of this release was to address the previously announced prevention of duplicate logs on the same cache. The site attempts to prevent you from doing so as if you log a find, then try again, you can't. But if you open 2 or more log pages in separate tabs before you log your find, you can still log multiple finds. This also means that using a script like tampermonkey would easily allow cachers to log finds multiple times, or by apps that scrape the site. Maybe more is to come in this area, but the security to prevent "illegal" logs shouldn't be in the web page.
  24. I was assuming the original poster possibly didn't have a smartphone and wanted to use SMS, but I didn't ask. When I wrote the HTML stripper, I was using the gmail app but wanted to strip out formatting so I could see more on a screen at once.
