  1. When were they logged? Did you log it as something else, or as "Found It"? Are they caches or events?
  2. I'm not too impressed by the fact that the reason I noticed the new sort-by option is the messed up UI. I really don't see myself sorting by anything other than newest first, and fortunately uBlock Origin's eyedropper tool allows me to hide that element so I don't have to see it.
  3. A cache with 0 favorite points could be an under-appreciated one, or just one that nobody really liked. I thought what would be nice is if a cache you logged and favorited (is that a word?) but doesn't have 10 favorite points yet, gets to 10 FP within that month, you should get some bonus points. But that would seem a bit cumbersome to implement.
  4. I'm seeing the image below under "Wonders of the World" when viewing some caches - such as GC9GDC8
  5. It mildly annoys me that it's named "Second International Geocaching Day" so that it doesn't sort properly, and that they didn't give a separate one for 2013, but lumped it together with "31 days of Geocaching 17 / 31". But I'm mostly annoyed at myself for forgetting to get the one for 2019
  6. I came to the forums to report this bug, and noticed that this thread has already been created a month ago. And it's definitely a bug, as noted by @balu2003 - the first 50 entries are correct in showing "found by user X" and the remainder shows "last found". Anyone know of a workaround? I tried the old URL https://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.aspx?ul=XXXXX which seems to work, but I couldn't figure out how to filter by cache type. Edit: I found that using https://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.aspx allows you to use cache type as filter, but it only works for the first page of 20 results. Subsequent pages are not filtered.
  7. I was going to comment on how difficult it is to find Challenge progress in the profile, when I decided maybe I should take a look at the "new" profile page (that has been around for a while) and lo and behold, there they are I guess it is finally time for me to move away from the original profile page.
  8. Looking at the photos and images for Perseverence on NASA's site, I decide to make an addition to the Rover Evolution Plate artwork.
  9. There's actually one that looks quite detailed on Amazon, about double the price of this one. It's not Lego though, and some reviews said that instructions are non-existent. Do a search if you're interested, been away from a while and not sure if shopping links to 3rd party sites are allowed. I also found the Lego Curiosity rover (close enough for government work) but the only price I found was over $500, so I'll give that a miss.
  10. Let's do one better than a virtual. Let's have an event there. Participants must show up in ape suit.
  11. You're right, it does say that. Seems like a short amount of time for people to log for this souvenir especially if they go beyond the asteroid belt. I thought the grace period for the pre-friends league event souvenirs were longer but I may not have remembered correctly.
  12. I don't know if Groundspeak will re-calculate the score, hopefully they will. Otherwise, unless you want to have the caches logged in the exact same order you found them in, you only need to re-log the missing ones. Still tedious, unfortunately. Groundspeak also usually allow a few days after the event is over to allow users to continue logging in order to get the souvenir (because not everyone can get all their logs in on time) so you can fix them then if it is more convenient. Either way, good luck, and have fun with your trip.
  13. You didn't read my post above The system is still unstable and may not record points correctly. Happened to me last week. Find out which ones didn't contribute to points (under Friend League, click on your username to see the list), delete those logs, and log it as Found again.
  14. I haven't been caching as much recently as I had in the past, and have been relying heavily on the app as well as online access. My own fault for not downloading PQs. Site is up / down intermittently right now. Advice for those logging to accumulate points for Planetary Pursuit - wait for the site to stabilize. Last week I logged a cache right when the site went down, the find was registered but no points were recorded. I had to delete and relog for the points to show up.
  15. Try the project-gc checker instead: https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC4C8T4/20393 Apparently I need a cache starting with "X" above 300m to qualify.
  16. I have a script that I run to check for archived caches. The logic is something like this: 1. Filter for caches where last update is older than yesterday's date 2. Prompt user to update these caches using GSAK API to update their status (I haven't figured out how to trigger this through script - I think Clyde specifically don't allow this at the request of Groundspeak some time ago, don't know if this has changed) It will fail for caches that got unpublished, but those are few and far in between, so I don't mind handling them individually. Let me know if you want my GSAK script.
  17. Try this NASA page. It's not behaving properly for me right now, but it might be because of my office firewall.
  18. It was indeed. I was glad I was able to experience it with a group of geocachers.
  19. Part of the whole experience was a little confusing, but I did not encounter any major issues unlike others, got 6 souvenirs (including the bonus), as well as the trackable, so I guess I shouldn't complain. I tried to solve the final puzzle, apparently wrongly, and got a 8 letter nonsense word. I entered it anyway, and it appeared to be successful, saying I'll get my trackable code, but the email today said I didn't get the bounty, but here's the trackable anyway. An indication that I did not solve it correctly when I entered the code word would be nice, because I'm obsessive like that I also noticed that the special icon is not displayed on all pages. In fact, it's only displayed when I view the trackable from my public profile page. If I looked at my "owned trackable" page, it shows a generic icon. Assuming that this is just a caching issue for now.
  20. You can buy small charms and make something interesting with them. They don't cost much, typically a few for a dollar. I have almost no artistic talent, so I just put them in a small baggie. Someone found butterfly charms I left and made ear-rings out of them. Those painted stones are really beautiful.
  21. A very much anticipated feature, but definitely still buggy. At zoom level 17, I see the new icon if I tweak the coordinates a little, but if I make a larger change, it disappears off the map entirely. Using Firefox on Windows. At zoom level 15, I managed to get it so that only part of the icon appears. Might it be an issue with which map tile it appears in? (the "corrected" coordinates in this map is bogus) Edit to add: using corrected coordinates N 47° 35.500 W 122° 18.000 (somewhere in Seattle) for GC5BQKT if you need it for testing. And no, that is obviously not the correct final.
  22. 1. Download the PQ ZIP file to your computer and open it. Inside you will find 2 GPX files. The one with "wpts" in the name is the additional waypoints. Copy both files to your desktop (or another folder). 2. Connect your Garmin Montana with USB cable to your computer. It may take up to a minute for your computer to detect it. Open up the device that appears on your computer. Go to the "GARMIN" folder, then the "GPX" folder that's inside "GARMIN". 3. Drag and drop the 2 files from step 1 into the "GPX" folder. 4. Wait until the files finished copying, then eject the Montana (same way you disconnect a flash drive safely). Unplug. Restart the Montana. It will load in the new caches. Depending on number of caches, this may take up to a few minutes. If you would like me to elaborate any of the steps in more detail, please let me know.
