  1. We are prioritizing removing the default values and requiring owners to select specific times in our future work. Most events that show up with inconsistent times are events that owners created before January 15 and have since edited, not noticing the new time fields. We reach out to COs when we know of an event with a time discrepancy, and believe that most people will not show up at midnight without first reading the event description.
  2. Event caches require start and end times, and any newly created or edited events going forward require the time fields to be be populated, yes.
  3. The "Add to Calendar" functionality has not been updated in this release, meaning that it still adds an event for the entire day. We are considering updates for this feature in future releases, as well as updates to the Dashboard's event widget. Additionally, our localization team is looking into the best way to offer time formats that would serve our global community. A time is only added to an event cache when a new cache is created or an existing event cache is edited, so it's very likely that the CO is editing the cache and not noticing the new time requirement. We'll try to let COs know when we see this occur, though hopefully it will be a small number of caches that have this inconsistency.
  4. As of 1/9/2018, the data sent to Garmin devices through the Live Geocaching feature should list geocaches at their corrected coordinates if the user has set them.
  5. For any users experiencing issues receiving notifications of message center messages, please double check your Email Preferences under your Account Settings. The default Message Center sub-setting is to only send notifications after 30 minutes of inactivity in a conversation. If you would like notifications for every message, select the second sub-setting, "Send me a notification every time I receive a message." If you change the setting and are still experiencing issues afterwards, please let us know.
  6. Hi Team Christiansen, When looking at your account, I see both "Yer total score" as well as your record within the league showing 59 as your total. I don't see a 42 on the page for any league members. Perhaps a refresh of the page will help? The ranking system is a valid point, as the current system is less accurate but was originally chosen in order to keep a logical flow of numbers being displayed. We will internally consider changing the way ranks are displayed.
  7. Yes, the souvenirs were awarded a little over an hour ago. Sorry for the delay! They will typically be rewarded on Wednesday mornings PDT, which is late afternoon/early evening UTC.
  8. The bug referred to was only an issue last Monday (7/17) and was fixed shortly after. To see last week's points, you can hover over the "Week of" dropdown at the top of the friend league page, and click "Week 1". Looking at the data, all of your logs for Saturday 7/22 are accounted for in the friend league points for last week.
  9. Souvenirs will be awarded the Wednesday after the corresponding week, as players have 2 days to post logs towards the prior week. As each week is announced, the rules for the week as well as the day on which that week's souvenir will be awarded will be updated here. The souvenir for July 17-23 will be awarded on July 26.
  10. There were a few minutes of downtime this morning during the score reset due to heavy load causing a timeout. There was also a short-lived bug where website logs on caches in certain time zones were converted to a time earlier than noon UTC. This has been fixed and sounds like the case with your log, since your conversion seems correct. An easy workaround is to edit the log you think should be counted in this week's friend league. If you hit the edit button, don't change anything, and hit save, the log should self-correct.
  11. At present, ten is the maximum number of friends displayed, though the total score reflects the sum of all friends' scores. We are actively working on adding the functionality to view more than ten friends at once.
  12. Our hopes are that users will send friend requests to other users they actually know or want to meet up and go geocaching with. However, if you do not want friend requests, there is an option to turn them off entirely by going to your account settings -> preferences and checking the box that says "Block friend requests from other geocachers". We also limit the amount of friends a single user can request in a given amount of time in order to reduce spamming.
  13. Yes, any type of event (CITO, Mega, etc.) will count for the first souvenir July 15-16, as well as count towards 10 coins the week of July 17-23. To obtain the souvenir on July 15-16, one must attend an event himself/herself.
  14. Yes, the friend league is available this week in order for players to familiarize themselves with the feature. You can log a cache or attend an event and see it reflected in your coins on the site. However, the coins will reset on Monday, and only starting on July 17th will the coins start to count towards the goals for the second souvenir (the first being attending an event on July 15-16). This FAQ has more detail about the souvenirs announced thus far.
