  1. I nominate Insect Sculptures as the most responsive Category. My new Waymark was approved by all three officers, within two days. Thank you, Following Entomology members. I wish all the groups were this responsible. We thought surely everything would already be Waymarked in Seattle. . .
  2. Is there anyone who could help me with a photo from the Montreal, Canada, area, or New York or New Jersey? I'm looking for a spot where the West is 74 18.733 I've got too many letters in my cache name. . .
  3. We're wondering if there would be enough Sport related museums to propose this as a Category. I'm not sure how to research this sort of thing.
  4. Would the requirement include some sorts of obstacles to help show the movement? The water moving and splashing around rocks or trees, for instance?
  5. Thank you for fixing this. I've been trying each day to edit my Waymark. Today it worked and I am happy instead of frustrated.
  6. I am still unable to edit my Waymark, but I can edit another declined Waymark without trying to choose a different category. Sometimes there are folks here who can fix problems. If anyone is able, can the 3 Dimensional Art category be assigned to WM15A9H? If it has a category assigned, perhaps it will get over the uncategorized loop. https://www.Waymarking.com/wm/search.aspx?f=1&uid=a931e861-a263-4812-83a6-18802c48403c&st=4&wft=2
  7. I have tried this multiple times with the same result. Clicking on "edit" from the decline notice or from my profile list gives the same error message. Waiting a while and trying again, gives the same error message. I can submit it as uncategorized, but I cannot edit it. The old (declined) category was removed, but I cannot choose a new category. The mister (ted) has the same problem. I have another to edit, using the same category. I'll wait to do that one, in case the problem is editing rather than just changing categories. Hopefully Monday will bring some repair work.
  8. I am here to learn what to do with a Waymark that is outdated. This sounds like the same topic. I posted a Waymark for a visitor center and now that visitor center has moved. What should be done with the Waymark? (WM145EP) Update the Waymark with new coordinates and photo and website? Put "REMOVED" somewhere in the Waymark (where?) as suggested above? And post a new Waymark for the new location? We've seen a few other Waymarks in town for which the business is gone, but haven't noticed that they were updated. We tried to go to the (old) visitor center today and didn't know it had closed until we got home and I asked google when the open hours were. I feel sad that my Waymark is now not helpful.
  9. I was amazed to actually see the space station a few weeks ago. I would be happy to be a partner if one is needed in central Pennsylvania.
  10. Is it meant to be set up to have zero points for attending an event? It isn't a "found it" log, but an "attended." Are webcam "photo taken" logs also excluded? Or should I fuss about no points from a cito?
  11. Sort of. Two Kissmobiles have switched locations. The license plates of the Chocolate World and the auto Museum Kissmobiles show that they have been switched. I added the third at the school, but ted was told that he couldn't add the old locations with the updated licence plates.
  12. We had to visit Hershey and found all three Kissmobiles. A brochure with one said that they no longer travel. So they are visit-able, but very limited, to Hershey, PA. Sue How far does the Peepmobile travel?
  13. I, too, found this lack of edit option to be annoying. I uploaded photos in a certain order. To change one of the earlier ones, I would then have to delete and re-add a dozen photos? I would think a feature that helps us make a Waymark be as nice as possible would be worthwhile. Sue
  14. It's an iphone. I'm not sure which version of the lab app. We didn't know there were different ones. (It is "ted's" phone, as I have a flip phone and really, really dislike the app phone only stuff.) We did repeatedly tap "search this area" after moving the map around and zooming in and around on the known location (central PA). We can see the ones in eastern PA - dormont and treasure lake. We can see ones in Maryland, New Jersey, etc. I'm not sure what the discover or explore buttons are and will look for them. Thank you for some things to try.
  15. Greetings. Our town has a new adventure lab series of five locations. Several cachers have already found them, so we know the general area of town where they are located. But the app won't show them to us. We have moved the map around, moved the map in and out, yet the "search here" says no lab caches found. It shows us labs in other areas when we move the map to those areas. But it will not show us the ones a few miles from us when we focus there on the map. What can we try? I asked one of the finders if he had a special invitation, if it were private. I was told he had nothing special to find it.
  16. I placed a Challenge cache (move/discover at least 42 trackables) to get more geocachers to notice the tags and coins. I've had fun qualifying and finding many Challenge caches, some got us to get to different states or concentrate on benchmarks or something else different for us. It wasn't until I saw a cache (gone when I finally qualified) that required 100 dnf's that I began logging my dnf's. I guess my point is that I enjoy the Challenge caches. We travelled over 400 miles to another state and found a cache in each of the DeLorme pages. We spent several hours (the latter half in a thunderstorm) getting to the DeLorme Challenge cache to sign the log. By the time we got back home, the DeLorme Challenge cache had been archived. A request that we could log it was denied by the cache owner. It was a while before a new DeLorme Challenge cache was placed and even longer before we could return to find the new one. It did put a damper on our experience. The silver lining was that we also returned to a dnf in the state and had success and it was a very good cache. It is overall a lovely and friendly state. I feel that three months is a short time for any cache. But there are so many reasons why a cache might be archived that no guidelines could help some.
  17. Thank you (as usual) Keystone. Thank you to those who offered advice. We tried to add numbers to a photo 640 wide, but it sure looked clumsy. We have the uploaded photo on the cache page with fuzzy numbers and a link to the nicer, number-readable copy also on the cache page. I've seen a disclaimer on some cache pages when downloading is required. Is the disclaimer needed for a link, too? Something like Groundspeak has not virus checked this?
  18. I am approaching a milestone and am hoping to make it an event. (There was a challenge cache, perhaps in Washington, that required different types of caches for different milestones.) I have found 8 lab caches. From what was said here, am I correct in guessing that I can ignore the 8 and the count on My Profile to figure my next milestone? Can I go by my count, which does not include the 8 labs? Locking in a milrstone is mentioned here, too. How does that work? What if I want to change the one it shows first? I don't think my lab finds show in my calendar. They show in my count, but I wish they wouldn't.
  19. I'm sorry. I can't figure out how to delete one and thought too late it was in the wrong place. If you can delete one, please do.
  20. What is the best size, then? Does it go by pixels? bytes? inches? We had experimented with enlarging, shrinking, changing to png or jpg.
  21. When a photo is uploaded to a cache page, it seems like the photo is changed. A picture that is clear on the computer becomes fuzzy when uploaded. How can a cache desccription have a clear picture, the same as what was uploaded. We've tried png, various enlargments, using a link to a photo on facebook, and using a link to a Box, which doesn't seem to work at all.
