  1. I have the same problem. When I create a draft on the app, it shows as a blue exclamation mark. Once I get home, I go to the Drafts page on the website, where there are no drafts to be seen. That's OK, I say, and just log my Founds on the website - no draft. My find count on the app is now the same as on the website.


    Then, I did an experiment. I went on the Drafts section of the app, and logged them again as Found. The find count on the app goes up, as if I have logged Found more than once on one cache. When I look at the same cache page on the website, there is only my first log - from the website, not the app. Now, my find count on the app is higher than the website. This is strange!

  2. I have an unpublished cache page, and I am busy making the container. Meanwhile, I thought I would get a start on making the puzzle. However, I have heard that unpublished cache pages are automatically archived after no activity for a while. How long do I have to submit the cache for review before it is archived?

    By the way, there really should be a section in the forums about discussing the forums;).



    Doesn't the Website forum fulfil that requirement?

    Just to be clear, that site gives very precise coordinates, but there's no guarantee that they're accurate. It's still based on an aerial imagery map (Maxar), which can suffer from poorly-aligned imagery just like Google Maps or any other online map. It could be more accurate than Google Maps in some areas, and it could be less accurate in others.

    I meant, you can put in the answer you get for a puzzle if the puzzle answer generates precise/accurate coords without rounding.

    When using Google Maps, it is possible to obtain coords for a location by Option/Clicking (MAC) on a location.


    Is it possible to pull coords in a similar fashion from the Geocaching search map view.  I like to look at the map and location of existing caches and nearby multi's to get an idea for further investigation for a new cache?

    A great site for really accurate coordinates is whatsmygps.com. I use it for puzzles where they generate accurate coords.

    (I don't know how to log a NA or NM using the app. You can log in on the website, go to the above link, and click on Log Geocache, then Write Note, then Report a Problem.)

    Using the app, you navigate to the cache page, scroll down to the bottom, and click "report a problem with this cache"
