    Any chance you have the 12-12-12 Indiana coin left?

     

    (or any trackable or non-trackable Nerds?)

     

    Yes, I do.  Here are pics of it:

  3. Yes, some of them are left, plus we have others I haven't listed.  All of them are going to the Midnight Madness Event at GeoWoodstock so if you are interested in a particular one, let me know soon.  

  4. Wow!  So glad you weren't hurt and that your damage wasn't disabling to either your vehicle or your trailer!  Your attitude on the whole episode is impressive!  May the rest of your trip go much more smoothly!!

    We are downsizing in preparation for retirement and selling most of our coin collection. Below is about half of what we have. All coins will be shipped inside a coin flip, wrapped in an index card and taped (no tape on coin or flip!) and inserted into a bubble envelope. I’ve weighed the coins and calculated postage – the shipping cost per package of up to 5 coins will be $3.65 for USA addresses. Larger packages, I'll weigh them and get back to you on the shipping cost. I’m willing to ship internationally, but the cost for that is pretty steep - $14.50. All of these coins are activated, but are easily adopted over. Please *e-mail* me through GC.com if you are interested.

     

    Thanks!

    What do these coins look like?

    Here is a pic of 2 of them.  They have a smooth clear finish and are 1" wide.  Among the others are a gold one and a glow-in-the-dark one.  I've just done this pic in a hurry, so let me know if you'd like to see the rest of them and the backs.

  7. This hasn't happened to me but I suggest going into a wifi spot before logging any trackable. This should work... hopefully.

     

    Let me know what happens.

    I hope that this was useful!

     

    This isn't on a phone. This is from a PC.

     

    I can confirm it happened to me as well just yesterday, using the new logging page, on a PC.

     

    Mrs. Car54

  8. How do I get to my private lists from the new profile page?

    You can't. You can't on the old form of the profile page either. That has only ever shown the lists you've marked as public.

     

    To view all of your lists, you'd need to go to your Lists page. This can be accessed from

    • New dashboard: the "Your lists" link on the left side
    • Old dashboard: either the "Lists" link at the top of the page or the "My Lists" link on the right side

    Thank you! I had bookmarked the old profile page - https://www.geocaching.com/p/default.aspx?id=217132 - which brought up the page "This is a new profile experience...". THAT page had nothing on the left, just a list of hides and finds. Even clicking on the lists tab, there was nothing. I even tried the link to take me back to the old profile and then used its link to return to the new profile - nope. It wasn't until I clicked on our user name way up top in the header that I got a new profile page with the stuff on the left. Not intuitive at all!!!

     

    Mrs. Car54

     

    Edit to say that the way I was getting there from the old profile page was to click on "lists" on the quick view line at the top of the page. My original question wasn't very clear - I knew private lists never showed directly on the profile page. It's just that I couldn't find where to click to get to them. :)

  9. How do I get to my private lists from the new profile page? And is there anyway to summarize the favorites list instead of having to scroll past all the caches we've favorited to get to our public lists?

     

    Thank you,

    Mrs. Car54

     

    Edit - Aacckk! I was playing around on our lists page accessed through the old profile and wanting to see what the little slider button did, I slid it to the right on one of our lists. It indicated we will now receive an e-mail whenever one of those caches is logged. NO! I don't want that! It won't let me move the slider back and I don't want to delete the list.

     

    Edit # 2 - NM - you have to "click" the button, not "slide" it.

     

    Thanks for the feedback. If these comments are about the website, please be sure to post them in the latest thread for updates there since this thread is only about updates to the app.

    Oops! Sorry about that!

  11. I won't comment on the changes as it is my impression it would just fall on deaf ears.

     

    I will instead say that comparisons to the rollout of the new search are not valid. The dying down of those complaints is at least in part because the old search is still available. I, for one, use the old search almost exclusively. The only time I use the new search is if I already know the exact GC number, which is rare.

     

    Just making the point that you can't infer satisfaction with changes just because feedback slows or disappears. It could also mean your customer has just given up. While that may not mean much on any given issue, the cumulative affect could well prove unfortunate for your business model.

     

    JMHO,

    Mrs. Car54

  12. It's 2017. Everyone's got a smartphone. Geocaching is not something you do behind a desk. Make the "Create geocache" and "Edit geocache" pages mobile friendly!

     

    :rolleyes:

     

    I don't have any type of mobile phone.

     

    Geocaching does involve sitting at a computer for me...and a lot of other folks.

     

    Your assumption that everyone has a smartphone is way off-base and ill-informed.

     

    B.

     

    So, just because you don't have one, the majority that do should not be accommodated?

     

    Why do you assume the majority has a smartphone? And those that do, why do you assume they want to use it for caching?

     

    One of the "minority?"

    Mrs. Car54

  13. Another member of the 1% checking in - 12 years as a premium member - and I definitely prefer the old search. I don't want to have to "take a class", so to speak, to learn how to do something I can already do easily via the old search. As I get older - in my 60's now, I want to use more of my caching time actually caching, not fiddling with searches.

     

    JMHO

  16. In the Netherlands we have just had some new laws implemented auto-reoccurring payments are forbidden because businesses are counting om people forgetting to cancel.

    Groundspeak is a US company, so they probably don't fall under that law.

     

    Regardless, auto-renewal is increasingly being considered "shady". Apparently there are laws in the works in Australia regarding such contracts, and there have been many investigative reports by journalists about the shady practices of gyms which could lead to legislation in other jurisdictions. It's unfortunate that Groundspeak has decided they need to resort to using shady or illegal business practices to survive (see the previous VAT controversy). Continually shooting yourself in the foot and alienating your customers seems like an inherently-flawed business plan, but what are you going to do...

     

    + 1 - and that's coming from a user who has VOLUNTARILY been auto-renewing for over 10 years. :mad:
