  1. @worrellsquirrel, as FenchurchE points out relogging can't be done for Labs. I found enough labs yesterday during the period things weren't working to reach the peak and cannot relog them. This needs to be fixed ASAP.
  2. You have the tracking numbers visible in the photos of the ducks you posted. That's all that's required for someone to log a find on the coin. There are folks who go looking for trackables codes and log them as discovered. Looking at your coins the logs are from Germany, which is not uncommon for "virtual" discoveries. In many cases a code found like this will get shared so you may start seeing a bunch more "virtual" discoveries. If you don't want your ducks logged by folks who haven't really found them I'd suggest you update the photos to blur out the tracking number and make sure you blur or hide it somehow on photos for any new trackables you send out.
  3. See this thread: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=334750 Groundspeak has seen these bogus logs showing up, and is working on a way to block them.
  4. It looks like the Big Horn Outdoor Adventure Show is that weekend.
  5. Email sent requesting blue and purple on nickel.
  6. The preorder window has been extended until July 20th. Again, No orders will be mailed. You must pick them up in person at the Swag Preorders booth during the Going APE mega-event on Aug. 17, 2014.
  7. If you're planning to be at the Going APE 2014 Mega on August 17th this year the window to preorder the event coin (and other swag) is rapidly closing. This year's coin is 2.5-inches, minted in antique silver, and features the famous ape prancing outside the tunnel entrance waving a GPSr. On one side, the ape is rendered in white glitter framed by a blue glow; on the other, he is brown glitter framed by a pale yellow glow. Trackable at Geocaching.com, of course, with a custom icon. No orders will be mailed. You must pick them up in person at the Swag Preorders booth during the Going APE mega-event on Aug. 17, 2014.
  8. Looking for a little bling to brighten your winter? Check out the WSGA winter swag sale - the remaining stock of the 2010 and 2013 APE event coins as well as APE Cachekinz are available. Grab yours while they last. WSGA Swag Sale
  9. The new cache forms do not function in IE 11 (Windows 8.1). Portions of the forms draw incorrectly, some fields are missing, and when you get to selecting the cache side the form submit does not recognize you've picked one and fails. The issues make it impossible to complete a cache submission using Internet Explorer.
  10. Oh, and the coin started travelling in October 2012 -- 1 year and two months ago.
  11. Take a look at this thread for info on the coin. There have been several other campaigns as well -- Geico and Superchips both did tags, and I'm sure there are others.
  12. For anyone planning to be at GCF in Las Vegas this weekend FenchurchE and I will be there and we'll have the antique brass and satin nickel versions of Free Luna with us. Feel free to message me if you'd like to arrange a meet-up.
  13. There are a few brick-and-mortar stores that sell Geocoins. Try you local sporting goods stores - I know REI has a small selection, others might as well. I know of two other options -- Oakcoins has a small store in their office in Kaysville Utah that sells coins they've made. And if you're in central Florida the Space Coast Geocaching Store is worth visiting. They have a good mix of coins for sale along with other caching supplies.
  14. It is available on the Geotour site: http://www.kingcounty.gov/environment/stewardship/conservation-futures/cft-geotour.aspx
  15. Many of the larger events will have coin trading -- both Geowoodstock events I've attended had dedicated coin trading areas/events around them and Groundspeak sets aside an area for coin trading at the Block Party events. There's also the Geocoinfest events each year that focus on sales and trades of coins - this year's US event is in Las Vegas in October. There are a few brick-and-mortar stores that sell Geocoins. Some sporting goods stores are starting to stock a few (I know REI does). Apart from that there are starting to be a few more dedicated storefronts. I've visited two -- Oakcoins has a small store in their office in Utah that sells coins they've made and Space Coast Geocachers in Florida has had a good mix of coins from most coin makers. If you can make it to a major event like Geocoinfest, Geowoodstock or the Groundspeak Block Party there will usually be a vendor area with coin sales.
  16. Geotrackable.info is still ongoing - Mekle's been updating the code and adding data but things have slowed down over the last several months as there's a new baby in their house taking lots of attention away from the project.
  17. Congrats to Sundance on reaching the finals. Added my vote.
  18. Voted -- congrats to Sundance for making the final 4.
  19. That apparent difference is probably a side effect of my photographic skills; the enamels in the Deep Sea sample coin and the final production run are the same.
  20. If you had 10 before picking up Nightshade you should now have all 11 versions that went up for sale (Fire, Ember, Nightshade, Sapphire, Deep Sea, Leaf, Silver, Sun Flare, Emerald, Glacier & Shadow). The only one you'd be missing at this point is the Iron AE version:
  21. If I remember right when the coin was up for sale the notes on it said it was inspired by the Great Mormon butterfly (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Mormon), a member of the swallowtail family.
  22. Definitely interested in picking some up when you have them ready.
  23. Nice looking coin. Thanks for the cointest.
  24. Sadly not going to make it -- one of these days...
