  1. The behaviour has changed and the current behaviour is quite undesirable. The date used to default to todays date and if you changed it, it would retain that change for a few hours it seemed. Now if I change the date it seems to retain that date for days afterwards and across computers and browsers. I constantly enter logs on the wrong days now. Hopefully this behaviour can be reverted.
  2. I'm much in agreement. I enjoyed the challenges before when they were just personal challenges. But now there are just so many caches around that can't be found because they have such onerous requirements. It does seem like their time has come and gone and they would be better served in another manner. Like posted above, challenges helped renew my interest in caching, but that soon waned as the stacks and stacks of rules and challenge directed finds soon went from making caching more interesting, to making it even less fun than before.
  3. Were they ACTIVE railroad tracks? Any railroad with rails should be considered an active railroad. Period. Full stop.
  4. Here's my list of coins on offer that I'm trying to part from my collection. If anyone is interested, please let me know. The current list and general pictures are linked in my signature. Thanks for your interest.
  5. It would be useful to cache owners to know about any information posted in logs for their caches.
  6. Send out notifications for any log edits performed on owned caches so that owners know the entirety of what is posted and can respond to any issues.

  8. If the owner isn't around to even post a log on their cache, the needs maintenance flag is the least of things to be worried about for the cache.
  9. I'm of a similar opinion, it takes but a few hours to get a new cache published. It often takes months for a cache owner to perform maintenance required to reactivate a disabled cache. It can take upwards of a year to go through a courteous process to have a cache disabled/archived where the owner has abandoned it. While the impact of a disabled cache is generally fairly minor, it does block others from hiding a findable cache in the general area. The impact of a missing, but active cache, is obviously more significant as it sends people on an unenjoyable wild goose chase and increases the impact on the area as people spend more time there and search more thoroughly. You end up with a lot of these flash in a pan style hides, where someone puts out a cache, it is found a few times, then goes missing for whatever reason and hangs around for months until being disabled and then months more before being archived. In my opinion, the overall approach demonstrates a lack of care about cache maintenance by Groundspeak.
  10. The list is dwindling, but still quite a few coins on offer that I'm trying to part from my collection. If anyone is interested, please let me know. The current list and general pictures are linked in my signature. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks
  11. I don't like to see rehashes of the same cache. Even rehashing the same area isn't all that fun. For people in search of numbers it is perhaps the thing to do, but for people in search of experiences this doesn't work.
  12. I don't have an iPad and I don't want Facebook integration.
  13. Can you get a group shot or have some place the pics are posted? Pictures are already linked at the top of the list.
  14. I'll once again offer up my list of coins I'm trying to part from my collection. If anyone is interested, please let me know. The current list and general pictures are linked in my signature. Thanks
  15. I'm plugging away in the feedback forum throwing out suggestions and supporting other worthwhile changes, but I'm almost always out of votes and can't lend support or start new ideas. So when is it a good idea to remove a vote from an old suggestion? When it is tagged by an admin as "under review"? has it already passed the hurdle, or is the amount of support still reviewed before getting implemented or refused If the topic has been sitting for a long time without any real action? is it done for and time to give up and move on or should we hold out hope Any other ideas?

  18. If souvenirs are something of interest to you, I'd welcome you to vote for my suggestion to add the Canadian Provinces and Territories as new souvenirs. Vote Here: Feedback Forum Entry
  19. The Christmas season is a approaching so I'll once again offer up my list of coins I'm trying to part from my collection. List is in my signature.
  20. Another issue I've discovered, emailed logs are going out with HTML encoding. My account is set "Do not send emails from Groundspeak in HTML format when available." Log Date: 11/9/2010 <p> Tough 1.5 TNLNSL</p>
  21. Looks like there is an issue with encryption in logs also.
  22. Bah! 17 is a long excursion, pfft. Take the time and sign the log, its the rule.
  23. Another tip for nano hiders. Permanently attach a small stick or wire to the head of the log book that is slightly wider than the log. This not only assists in removal but also in rerolling the log.
  24. If you sign up for their contest, you get a random coupon in some range, I forget what the maximum is, but its quite a bit more than 20% off.
