  1. Hi, if you want to remove archived caches from your account, just transfer them via adoption to an second user name. Do this, before archiving them. Also remember, that Ggl-search works very well for archived caches ... /st3phan
  2. First at all: Thanks a lot for this! Finally a useful and recommended feature for the users! We love things like this While still using the "Garmin Communicator" in combination with the "checkCompability"-Plugin, I hope I will be able to remove this after some testing. First impressions: - works fine with Win10 an GPS64s ... no problems - works only with the new lists. Okay, it 's consequent ... - would be fine, being able to do the same or a single (gpx-)download from a listings/quick info on map/search results - IMPORTANT: Please clean up your GPX Files. It seems there are some inconsequences (i.e. used by geotours: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=343763&st=0&p=5646849&hl=xml&fromsearch=1entry5646849 ) /Thx a lot! /st3phan
  3. Small Workaround to get back the small map on the right side on the website. Download here: www.schlado.de/greasemonkey/gckarte.user.js
  4. Delete all users and their messages where username ends on four digits AND the emailadress is not authenticated ... Should work ...
  5. Me too. Just got this message via message center from user 'sexton8098' : Hey! Check out [redacted] if you want to view all the premium caches in your area for FREE!! Not very clever writing it that way with this username. The worst thing is, I can't delete it via the info-app on Android. So spam will stay in place for any time? Not a year since the message center started ... and just got spammed/hacked. I hope Seattle will fix this soon! Just another reason, to make the registration process more secure (i.e. activationlink via email,...) Thx a lot!
  6. Hi! The only solution doing exactly this is the new map from project-gc (http://project-gc.com/Tools/LiveMap). Using these features requires a premium-account on project-gc. But at all, they use the gc-API ... If you want to do it from the native gc_com website, you 'll have to setup several pocketqueries which can be selected from the left panel using gc's map.
  7. This is already possible for years using the the greasemonkey script "GC comment". Just give it a try or search for more information on any searchengine. GC comment
  8. I noticed this "feature" long time ago. But be shure ... they won't change the map too soon. Try two things: a.) Reduce the Caches on the map, while disabling cachetypes on the left search panel. b.) Use the alternative-Map on gc-project_com which is still beta but uses the GC-API after all. Hope it works.
  9. Quite interesting is the fact, that it is possible using a small greasemonkeyscript. I am no JS-freak, but I assume that the feature is out there ... but not available. The script can be found here: Update all cache coordinates
  10. Hi there! As an owner I love reading logs. Sometimes, they are quite short like "Thanks", "Found" or up to three other small words. So in these cases, I just look at the user 's profile and often I wonder why it is still possible to play the game without authentication! Til today you can register at GC without confirming any entries you made to create an account. Even without logging in you can mark geocaches as "found"! As an owner and member I would appreciate, that new user have to confirm their accountdetails in an email send after registration. This will prevent them from adding email-adresses that don't work. After finding some caches they often want to hide caches too. Of course they should be able to. But in some cases you want to contact them. Without an validated emailadress it is not possible. I think as a member you have to confirm the emailadress twice a year or something else. As an owner it is much more important. It is the only way to contact (the new messanger is still beta and just can be red on the webpage ...?) What are your thoughts? Thanks, /s3phan
  11. Hello from Europe! Obviously, we can be controversial, since preferences in using the page are different. But just some suggestions after my first look at the new page: As a member since 2008 I find it sad that there are few really new gimmicks for me and other geo-nerds. After a release, the page is currently just transformed - and not more functional. I need after 7 years geocaching no "learning-video" any more. I also do not need Benchmarks in Europe. So knowing this, I would like really to modify the site/navigation to my needs (i.e. custom-menu). Everyone fits today his desktop or mobile phone individually. Only here it unfortunately does not work. Please do not throw the good old things to the garbage - rather create the opportunity to become more user-friendly with more user settings (turn functions on/off). Many of us 'oldtimers' love to play it the old way. Just let us decide, if we want the new "look and feel" or the "old one" (same as skins for webpages). Anyhow, thank you for the developement/maintenance!
  12. I suppose the same thing concerning the date in the 'first visit'-field. thx
  13. Hy webadmins and developers, just noticed a small thing: When viewing an auditlog from a PMO cache via 'auditlog.aspx', the timestamp used in column 'last visit' does not match my timezone. It would be helpful doing so, because the time of the last visit is displayed. In my case 9 hours less thx a lot! greetings from germany /st3phan
  14. Thanks to all responding to my ideas. In special way to frinklabs, for searching this forum!
  15. thx Walts Hunting ... that solved my problem! I don't know why I recognized it before.
  16. Hello! I hope it is the right place to communicate some of my 'little' ideas improving geocaching.com I tried to search the board but it might be that some of this points have been already discussed. FEATURES: 1.) When creating a new cache, we might use some kind of HTML-Editor (like TinyMCE or something else). Why do we not have this editor, when editing an already existing cache? 2.) With a growing gc-community, it would be nice to do some more 'social things' like: 2.1) o watch member o ignore member 2.2) Sharing lists with other members is very helpful to organize trips together. It would be much more nicer, if I share a list with explicit named members and both parties can add/delete caches to that list. 3.) When using notifications about cachetypes, it would be usefull to limit the result as we already do in pocket queries. Mhy not use only a range than countries/states/provinces, attributes and D/T-Levels? Many of us do geocaching in a special/own way, so it would be possible to adapt the notifications to my favorite way of geocaching (hiking, mtb, highlevel, or something else) 4.) I would appreciate more details in notification-emails like owner-name and d/t-level of new caches. BUGS(?): a) why do I see ignored caches in my pocketquery? Normally they have to be removed!? to this day, my language-preset (account-details) does not work. It switches back to english Thanks a lot! I hope my english is enough for this /Stephan aka st3phan, germany
  17. Kurz stichwortartig: - Der Unfall IST passiert. Kein Fake. - Ownerbeitrag: Quasi eine unveränderliche Kopie des ersten Eintrags zum Zeitpunkt X, sollte dieser überarbeitet/geändert werden (meine Vermutung) - Mein Statement: Personenschäden sind immer bedauerlich. Ich wünsche dem Verunfallten alles Gute für die Genesung. Alles andere obliegt den Betroffenen und Zuständigen - nicht der Community. Allen anderen etwas mehr Umsicht beim Cachen mit der Situation vor Ort und geht mit gesundem Menschenverstand an die Dinge, wie auch sonst ohne Geocaching (Fahre ja auch nicht Leute mit dem Fahrrad in der Fußgängerzone an etc.). Der Cache kann nichts dafür - der hat jahrelang funktioniert. Und wenn man ihn bei Hochwasser mit Boot oder Hilfsmittel macht. Der Weg ist eben nicht vorgegeben. Ich hoffe dass sich nun alles etwas mehr beruhigt. Alles andere wäre nicht hilfreich.
