  1. Wenn man einfach Wörter weglassen kann, dann trifft auch zu... aber auch auf sehr viele andere Logs.
  2. Welcher dieser Punkte trifft auf eine Friedensbotschaft zu?
  3. I can confirm this bug. As a workaround, you can make your browser window smaller until only Geocache name, Distance, and Terrain are shown, click the dots and switch to Difficulty, and change the window back to the original size again. I think the only options are to make the browser wider or to zoom out.
  4. Google, the biggest advertising company on the planet, is trying to follow everyone around the internet by thousands of different methods, and Recaptcha is one of them. (Why else would they have acquired it for around $25m?) Recaptcha actively punishes users who try to evade tracking by making the captchas much more annoying and sometimes impossible to solve (the tiles just keep loading forever, slooowly). Plus, unlike Adsense and Google Analytics, Recaptcha can't really be blocked unless you don't care about whatever is behind the captcha. I don't know what "out to get you" means to you, but this does to me. Having to label data for Waymo's self-driving cars for free isn't a great experience either. I really wish Geocaching.com used a different captcha service. Or, at least, more cache owners opted for an external checker instead.
  5. It's not the fault of c:geo that Groundspeak locks the API down so much that it is unusable by free and open source software.
  6. Has anybody tried contacting Goldenhawk?
  7. Is it possible to download all my personal cache notes? I've tried a few things: I used search filters to create a bookmark list containing all caches that have a note. (Well, actually multiple lists, with 1000 caches each.) But when I download them as GPX, the personal cache notes are not there. I've found several feature requests about this in the forums, but I don't think they have been implemented. Since I'm an EU user, I filed a GDPR request for my data. Haven't heard back yet, but hopefully that works. Still, I don't think this should be the only way. Any other possibilities?
  8. Absolutely. The purpose of this update is to lock previously free features behind a paywall, and they can't do that as long as the old thing still works. FWIW, I'll not be renewing my premium membership which expires in 1 week.
  9. Looks like an update just went live. The buttons are now vertically aligned with the "View Log" link (as suggested by terratin), so that less vertical space is wasted. Good change, thank you. That said, I'm still blocking the buttons. Here is the updated rule: www.geocaching.com##td > .LogDisplayRight.FloatLeft > .log-cta > .upvotes
  10. Seems unlikely, so I added a rule to my content blocker www.geocaching.com##td > .LogDisplayRight.FloatLeft > .upvotes EDIT (April 2, 2021): The rule above no longer works, this does: www.geocaching.com##td > .LogDisplayRight.FloatLeft > .log-cta > .upvotes
  11. I have also run into this limit a few times, an increase would be very welcome. Just one example: https://coord.info/GC3WZKT This challenge cache requires you to list 101 caches that you have found (one for each GC code suffix from 00 to 100). Putting a list of what you have found so far into the Personal Cache Notes is completely impossible here - the sample list is close to 5000 characters. Of course you can store the list externally. But I think that shouldn't be necessary.
  12. Historical side note: Groundspeak and Jeremy did not "invent" or "design" geocaching. Jeremy only took over the initial cache listing site that was maintained by Mike Teague.
