  1. Recently returned from St. Kitts and Nevis and did get credit for two separate countries. This is obviously in error.

     

     

    To whine further, Groundspeak has no Flag on file for Saba.

     

    Sorry. I'll go away now.

    Groundspeak has a flags somewhere? I've never seen..

  2. Wisiwyg editor ? Nonsens for user who mahe logs via fieldnotes !

    Assuming that you're not currently formatting HTML or UBB using your GPS or cellphone, the changeover to Markdown would not affect your plain text field note logs.

    Why not ?

  3. [...]

    In comparison with this waste, in Europe there is a country which has not received the right to have their Groundspek-country!

     

    Please be more specific. Which country do you mean?

     

    Hans

     

    NB: I doubt you meant Ladonia.

    Oh, nooo, Sorry, I dont know about Ladonia.

     

    I mean Kosovo !

    One simple reason, the UN does not recognize Kosovo as a country.

    And UNO recognize triply Nevis and St Kitts ?

  4. Tool ? Good thing.

    But it is very difficult to use !!! When I processing logs from fieldnotes, i must click to many of buttons - and at end of conversion the tool not return to field notes processing !!! Such tool should work automatically without harassment of user !

    Does the tool even work while creating a log from a field note? I thought it only operated on existing logs. Also, why would you enter BBCode or HTML in a new log and then use the tool to convert it rather than just using Markdown directly?

    Yes, the tool also started when processing fieldnotes. But it is quite bothersome steps to convert more logs. (sorry for google translate)

  5.  

    Also for many caches the value of logs goes far beyond reading them for to get a hint or information potentially helpful to find the cache. Many of the nicest caches have a considerable number of logs that tell stories. Those stories have never been intended to be read say on a GPS-device in the field.

    I do not understand what the problem should be on mobile devices. Since my beginnings seven years ago, I use quality 3party software, problem I'm just reading the listing that are stored in the image.

     

    But with this change I do not know how I'll just take on the mobile device new logs, none of Groundspeak does not want to explain.

  6. Mega próba w Brnie (Czechy).

     

    Wołam o pomoc! Chcemy spróbować tegorocznego "Leap Day" w Brnie przekształcony na Megaevent! Zobacz GC68R3B

     

    Zapraszamy do (mini) Mega Event - stan MEGA jest oficjalnie przypisana!

  7. Maybe HiddenGnome can answer the following questions.

    And the wide field of emphasis: Will * and _ work as described "Emphasis can be used in the middle of a word" which will alter all usernames containing more than one _ or *, which would also affect usernames like yes_no_maybe, or will only usernames like *Eisbär* and _law_ be affected? Or will usernames like Alter_Fuchs also be affected if an opening or closing _ coincidentally happens to stand nearby?

     

    Which ways to 'escape' being interpreted as Markdown will be supported? Inserting \ before otherwise interpreted characters, enclosing in `? All this will make text look ugly everywhere else, especially usernames.

    Good question.

     

    My girlfriend has a nick Naty* and nearly every log I mention her nickname as we hunted together. Will be this nick displayed correctly, or it will be appropriate to rename a girlfriend? And if you rename it, so as not to be another problem?

    Closely related to the acquisition of logs using Fieldnotes. Fieldnotes format is very simple, the entire log is on the same line, if you want to divide into multiple lines, there simply will place "BR" in brackets (or <br> of course). This manage bulk even the simplest editor (Notepad), how to do it in Markdown is a complete mystery to me.

  9. I think that's unfair and untrue.
    Call me skeptical, but two words: "Message Center".

     

    I'd love to know what subset of the user base was queried about that feature before it was implemented as a fait accompli.

     

    Interesting is, that for reviewers is disabled link to message center on treir profile pages.

    When it is possible for reviewer, why not for "plebs" ?

  10. Only the new cache publication has been optimized for plain text. With all other notifications, your mileage will vary depending on how your text service handles a formatted message.

     

    Optimized for plain text ? Where and when ?

  11. There are not yet mentioned any, that the authors of geocaching-voltage applications will have to be reprogrammed so that the imaging logs of this was garbled. Groundspeak probably unaware that in the field is necessary occasionally to see the log, and legible. And because they are responsible programmers, those will have to do much better to show how Markdown, and BB and HTML code.

     

    Markdown is for users new learning elsewhere practically unusable.

    Compared to the general validity and practical similarities BBcode / HTML is the Markdown "language" rather quirky. Just the new line "command" is really "brilliant".

  12. I'm also wondering if a cacher asks me a question and I need to reply it, etc, why does geocaching want to record what we are communicating?

     

    They don't want to record what you are saying, put the foil hat back in the drawer.

     

    For years there's been complaints about "i can't contact xxx user" be it because they cache with a phone app or registered with a throwaway email address. With the message centre app users get the message on the phone when they open the app, those who use a throwaway get it when they come to the website.

    Sure.

    But, why send such messages to geocachers which prefere email ?!

  13.  

    Because despite what many on these forums may think access via smartphones is THE way to get into geocaching now. Once upon a time you had to be some sort of message board geek, then you had to come across the website, then many came to the hobby when geocaches came preloaded on new gps units. Now many, many people carry this amazing tiny computer in their pocket that has a gps in it and the areas that are cache dense and the areas that have mobile coverage mesh, very well. So it is only natural that GS would cater to these people.

     

    Yes, access via smartphone is THE way. I know peoples with Garmin Monterra which do not use Garmin software and use Android application - Garmin software have obsolete possibilities.

    Try to find out the demands on data transfer for simple email and web operations at the message center. Try it when you imagine that in many countries the data transfers at an inclusive price seems like you in America, but it must be quite pay dearly. and install additional geocaching application only for read eventual messages (as another instant messager)? This is nonsense.

    And another thing - email message can be by simple way converted into a free SMS message!

    [sorry, translate with help of google]

  14. I think the issue is that some users can't deal with change, as if the way the world was is the way the would should always be. I wouldn't be surprised if these are the same people that still cling to their Garmin gpsMap60csx as the best GPS ever.

    What change? Eg I use smartphone or tablet, but without data transfer via mobile network. It is not necessary and in neighboring countries are ridiculously expensive.

  15. Hey all, this thread mostly answers the question I wanted to ask, as I've been running into a number of caches with months-long streaks of DNFs in my area.

     

    I just want to make sure I know the process -

     

    If there's a lot of DNFs in a row and I can't find it, either - I should do a NM.

    If someone has already done a NM, I should log a NA.

    Sending NM log to geocache of owner with last login in January 2014 ?? NONSENS ! Such owner is long time "dead".

    In such case only NA !
