  1. I go to a cache (the cache shows on the maps on that page), I click on "View Larger Maps," the larger map comes up. There are no caches showing on that page, I switch preferences, there are no maps showing on that preference either. i.e. nice albeit useless maps I tried logging out and logging back in ... no change I tried refreshing the map page two or three times ... no change Help! edit: additional action I tried clicking on "Save as Pocket Query" to see if there was anything hidden there on the page. The query came up and I clicked Submit and got I forgot to mention I'm using Google Chrome. 500 - Server Error We're sorry, your request has resulted in an error. If you feel that the page you are looking for should be available, please let us know. Otherwise, you may continue to use the site through its navigation, or browse the links below:
  2. The large map has no caches on it. Not what I'd call useful. Tried both preferences ... Google and Leaflet ... both without caches.
  3. There is no extra charge for Google Maps. They're provided at no additional charge to premium members. Yes, I know that. I was referring to back when Google Maps were first dropped and everyone had their panties in a bunch. Now, I'm saying I wouldn't be willing to pay extra for Google Maps as the MapQuest maps have been just fine for my purposes.
  4. Although I was initially irritated by the loss of Google Maps and expressed a willingness to pay extra for them. After the glitches and speed issues were dealt with, the Mapquest maps have worked just fine for us and I wouldn't pay extra for Google. In fact, when a map came up as Google Maps right after the change, I didn't even notice. I only knew they'd been changed when I came here to this forum to see what the new changes were. I appreciate the efforts you admin folks are making in both directions and the ability to toggle back and forth will be a nice option.
  5. Addition information. System reported healthy This is what I get when I try to go to a link from a pocket query: Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". <!-- Web.Config Configuration File --> <configuration> <system.web> <customErrors mode="Off"/> </system.web> </configuration> Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL. <!-- Web.Config Configuration File --> <configuration> <system.web> <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/> </system.web> </configuration> I was looking at events to add to my calendar. I'd added a couple quite successfully and, on the third, the info above was the result.
  6. I notice there is a new status update at status.geocaching.com. Since things are moving at a snail's pace today, I thought I'd go there to see what might be the problem. Nope. No help. status.geocaching.com reports that geocaching.com is "Healthy." Well, it's not.
  7. I'm also seeing the blank white maps page in Chrome tonight. IE 9 and Firefox work fine. Chrome just loaded maps again. I knew if I went and read awhile it would get back to what now passes for normal.
  8. With any luck at all I never see the full logs. Kind, prepared cachers often replace full logs and it is my preference that they toss the trash. That's what I do when I perform maintenance on my own caches.
  9. Chrome = white screen Please fix this. IE9 works but I prefer Chrome Firefox works but I prefer Chrome
  10. Fewer premium members = fewer hits on the maps = lower cost for those who stay
  11. I just tried it, and it's still using Google Maps. I don't see any differences from before the update. The Google maps is only on the first step. Then, it goes to the other maps. When I tried it the other map wouldn't even load. Just now it loaded. As long as the initial maps are Google so we can modify the first route supplied, it might be usable. I'm still in favor of a Premium/Google level membership for those of us who wish to pay for it.
  12. Charge premium members per 1000 hits. We could pay for the first thousand and then, when we get close we could re-up if we're finding them useful. You'd have to pay to play with the maps and what's not to like about that? No maps for those that don't pay. That would certainly cut the hits on the maps down in a hurry. Charge per thousand, in advance.
  13. Re the new maps (although we can hardly call them that): I clicked the "try it" link and got a nice array of icons with no map behind them. This is useful ... how? Just out of curiosity. What would the cost be, per premium user, to get the Google maps back? Just found the answer to my question? I too would be willing to pay to get the Google maps back. Charge me $4/1000? That'll work.
  14. I, too, would be willing to pay more for the best possible maps.
  15. What pray tell is this? And, how would I use it? http://adblockplus.org/en/ Then you add it as a custom element hiding rule in the preferences. Thanks. I'll wait to see if Geocaching takes care of it before I try to figure that out. I appreciate your reply.
  16. Re: Added a list of allowable HTML to create/edit cache page to assist cache creation Where do we find this? Thanks.
  17. What pray tell is this? And, how would I use it?
  18. Is there a way to turn this off, please? I would much rather see our current log activity at the top of the page. Thank you, Mrs. Car54 Yes. The link at the very top, with "Geocaches (Yours) ... is sufficient if we ever wanted to use this feature.
  19. Re: Removed Google Map API from user routes (CAaR) and replaced with Leaflet/open-map It would appear upon zooming in that these new CAaR routes use far fewer GPX points. That will make them totally useless for narrow searches along a route. When I plan a route for traveling some distance, I know that I will not wish to cache more than 0.5 miles (and sometimes less) from the highway. These new maps will leave sections of the route unsearched as the highway winds around and the straight-line search of the route chooses to ignore these curves. Google maps used to have this problem but have significantly refined and improved their maps. Now, you've chosen to return to the less useful routing. Why did you make this negative experience choice?
  20. Avatars in logs ... way useless. Dates for logs ... bring them back ... interesting and useful. I often need to find a cache I visited based on the date of find. Challenges ... let's see. Someone will get a Challenge point for dancing while I don't have one for finding a cache in every county in the state of California. Preposterous.
  21. I too could not find the update button yesterday. Then, when I checked just now there it was. I clicked it, it updated, it went away. Thanks for all the replies and the fun. Did you folks get out caching today? No reason to update if you don't find.
