  1. I agree. It seems to me that if a cache has a final location waypoint then the CO ought to have the option of enabling the solution checker regardless of cache type.
  2. This UK forum doesn’t get a lot of traffic. If you’re looking for volunteers: 1. Add to the cache description - in bold at the top! 2. Make an Announcement (log) - anybody watching the cache, or with the cache on a list will be notified. 3. Reach out to local cachers (email, MC, etc.); particularly anyone who has found your caches and left good feedback and/or FPs. 4. Ask for volunteers on Facebook. There’s a UK group, but there’s bound to be a more local group for your area too.
  3. The Help Center says: If you do not disable the cache, you may want to honor Found It logs for the throwdown. However, the geocacher who placed the throwdown does not have a strong claim... https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=38&pgid=427 Personally, unless it was absolutely obvious that the throwdown was not the actual cache, I’d let the subsequent logs stand.
  4. I thought I’d make another attempt at interjecting a bit of humour. No criticism, implied or otherwise, this time...
  5. If I happen to be in possession of a trackable when I put out a new cache, I’m likely to drop it in the cache to continue its journey. For my puzzles, I really don’t see it as any extra incentive, but I know some people do like finding trackables. I certainly don’t advertise it as a prize. I’ve also left unactivated tags as FTF prizes a few times, but I don’t advertise them either - I just hope it’s a nice surprise for those that pick them up.
  6. I’m confused - nothing new there! It reads to me as if Hans is saying the opposite to you: that he can see the details of all sequential stages of an AL in GSAK. So far I’ve only loaded completed ALs into GSAK. Guess I need to have a play...
  7. I liked @niraD’s batching solution above. Assuming you didn’t take too long over your edits, there’d be an email for the final version but none of the drafts.
  8. +1 GSAK is a useful tool for the backlogging...
  9. Humour’s not tolerated either. My post of a Dilbert cartoon was deleted too. 🤷‍♂️
  10. Ok, so now that you've pointed us to your profile, we can see the 'sparky milestone badges' you already have, and now we can help... By changing '3000' to '4000' in the url for the badge at the top, you should get what you need: (https://i1085.photobucket.com/albums/j440/harveyjj/4000-Finds.gif)
  11. Your checker is appearing for me (iPhone / Safari). For other checkers (GeoCheck, GeoChecker, Certitude, ...) you will need to add the appropriate link to the cache page’s HTML. These will appear on both the App and in a browser.

    Error 500

    The issue is caused by the apostrophe in your name. It has been reported and acknowledged by HQ.
  13. I tested this earlier today (Windows 10 / Chrome) and it seems to have been fixed.
  14. I’d already added my latest reply before I realised that the OP had effectively closed this thread by changing the title and content of the original post. Seems a shame - makes it harder for people with the same question to find an answer. ☹️
  15. Off topic, but I assume my suggestion above did resolve the OP’s issue, so I’m going for it anyway! In my opinion... Visit logs aren’t bad per se, it’s just the way that too many cachers use them that’s the problem. Most TOs would be happy to see a visit (particularly with a photo) to a cache / location in keeping with the trackables goals. And most would be happy with selected visits to new areas, say, to show the trackable’s journey. The issues for me are (1) cachers that hold on for trackables too long (regardless of how few/many visits they log), and (2) the automated visits into 10 caches per mile, day after day after day - as the OP says, these make the trackables map unreadable. I’m sure it would be possible to implement functionality that allows a TO to opt out of visits for their trackable, but then they’d miss out on those ‘nice’ visits that contribute to the trackable’s story...
  16. There’s a GSAK macro that does this, but I’ve never used it. https://gsak.net/board/index.php?s=c310cd4c7a0c944c05402659db6aacae&showtopic=34718&st=0&#entry264107
  17. This was reported on the website forum two weeks ago. https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/361417-message-center-bug/
  18. Try Poject-GC: https://project-gc.com/Statistics/Top
  19. I don't know about the state forums, but local FB pages are probably a good idea. I know this may sound a bit 'spammy' but for my events (ah, so long ago!), I've gone through the contacts in the Message Center, and sent out a light-hearted reminder. (I own a number of puzzle caches, so I do get messages from quite a few cachers - I must have over 300 contacts in the MC. I didn't send invites to them all!) Good luck with the event. Looking forward to the day when we can have them in the UK again!
  20. Generally, I don't have a problem with the switch - maybe I just don't use this functionality as much as some? - but one thing I do miss is the two 'Found On' dates: one for me, one for the filtered account.
