    Some of my api apps are having problems this morning.  It seems like part of the cluster is having an outage.

     

    Hey best geo-friend sloth96! Hope you're doing well.

    Yep, I even could not log in. Changed my password now, but still something is not right and not working smoothly.

    Possibly Hampsters mass-tripped on something that got jammed in their turning wheel, and cannot get it out while them spinning it.

    Hope it gets fixed.

    Evidently that's what happened.  Those hamsters can be tough.  However, I wouldn't use Romanji for bakemono.  ソフト・化物 is how I used to spell it, using it especially to encompass things that seemed to change in the software for no particular reason since 化 implies some sort of change.  There's lots of cool words for stuff like this in Japanese, and the phenomenon of a piece of software mysteriously changing its behavior is pretty universal!  gc.com certainly has their share of such issues.

     

    Are you sure that messages are actually missing, or did you get a small blitz of them just as things freed up?

     

     

     

     

    Not a single message from geocaching for nearly 12 hours? I very much doubt that.

    I just wonder if it's only me and my mail address, or if anyone else have the same missing email issue from geocaching.com.

    During this period, I DID receive email from other senders, just none from geocaching.com.

     

    And yes, softwares are mysterious being 'soft'. Hardware are 'hard', yet they too also change & glitch, so being 'soft' should make them even more have changes & glitches.

    Who knows, maybe those Hampsters like eating ソフト・化物 AND バグ bugs (insects) existing and appearing in the systems, hard and soft.

    Hmmmm....

    Are the Hampsters listening???

     

    Oddly, only after 25 minute I posted my massage here, I just started to receive emails from 'noreply@geocaching.com' once again, starting from a message timestamped 9:00 am EDT today Saturday October 17th. At least, Instant Notification, and Watchlist message has arrived so far.

     

    I'll keep checking, and post here for updates.

     

    Now I wonder where have all the messages I have missed receiving while sleeping have gone...

    Darn 'softo bakemono' ate them all??? :lostsignal:

     

    And would I ever receive them, although delayed? :omnomnom:

    When I worked in Japan, I used to blame such things on 'softo bakemono'.

     

     

    So, this time I guess the fluffy Hampsters scared off the 'softo bakemono' ソフト・バケモノ aka fluffy monstahs. :bad:

  6. Domo!!! (Howdy in Japanese ;)

    Is it just me?

    This morning here in Cambridge, MA, I have not received a single email message from "noreply@geocaching.com" which includes but not limited to all the geocaches notifications, Watchlist-ed geocaches & Travelbugs, Bookmarks notifications, etc. It seems I am not getting any email messages since last email received at 10:29 pm EDT yesterday Friday October 16th. Hampsters on break?

    I did however receive my Pocket Query notification from "noreply@geocaching.com" at 5:09 am EDT this morning Saturday October 17th, but that the only email message I got.

    To confess, I have ALL my Found (and DNF) geocaches on my Watchlist, and quick a few Travelbugs as well as several Bookmark lists with notifications activated. I usually get a ton of email from "noreply@geocaching.com" all the time 24/7/366.

    But somehow most nothing received this nearly 12 hours.

    What is going on?

     

    Geocaching.com System Status http://status.geocaching.com/ seems to show everything is working and online, and Hampsters not slacking off. Really weird...

     

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Darn, I cannot select my email address from the "Output To" pulldown. Get a 500 error, and cannot create new PQs at all.

    Fix coming?

     

    BTW, I am getting my periodic PQ email notices fine, and CAN download my PQ just fine.

    I just cannot create new PQ.

     

    Update on my issue not seeing my email address at the bottom of the New PQ page. Still had the same issue this afternoon.

    So, I've just contacted GCHQ via contact webpage, and then 10 minutes later, I got a reply saying they did something internally, and all should be good to go.

    Checked New PQ page now, my email address is back, and was able to create a new PQ.

    Awesome response time for that!

    Thanks GCHQ Hampsters!

    Added all Estonia flag, when I was in short trip and geocaching there :) 

     

    Thanks! Confirmed new Estonia flag!

    52nd flag added!

     

    But how...???

     

    BTW, has this issue been fixed now, or not?

    How did raivis_s add a new flag to my counter through my profile?

    Did raivis_s click on the flag counter within the profile page to get the count?

    Did anyone notice that there are no non-US profile views any longer recorded?

     

    Due to the latest change in the way how images are embedded at the geocaching.com website, these counter will no longer work for counting flags (what they were designed for).

     

    All profile views of all geocachers will load the embedded flag counter images via an images proxy located somewhere at the Groudspeak premises, so it will look like all profiles are never viewed from outside GS :mad:

     

    For technical details, see


     

     

     

     

  9. Quick question, as I cannot find the written answer.

    Does attending a geocaching event count for the Memory Lane Scoring, or not?

    It seems it does NOT count for the Memory Lane Scoring, as I just attended a drive-in event, but no additional point.

    And which ever it is, where on any geocaching.com webpage is this written out?

    I know an 'Attended" is not a "Found", but still nothing about events are in writing in at least the Memory Lane webpage

    https://www.geocaching.com/play/souvenircampaign/memorylane

  10. Darn, I cannot select my email address from the "Output To" pulldown. Get a 500 error, and cannot create new PQs at all.

    Fix coming?

    Wonders of the World

    What are Wonders?
    Wonders are digital stamps hidden in geocaches. Wonders help you fill your Wonders of the World passport. Collect them when you find and log geocaches. Search for geocaches that contain the Wonders you are looking for and collect them when you log the cache beginning August 12 at noon UTC.

    How do I find and collect Wonders?
    Plan your outings by searching for Wonders. Note: you have to collect all of the Modern Wonders before you can start collecting Ancient Wonders.
    1. Use filters to see geocaches that contain Wonders.Find and log geocaches 2. to collect the Wonders.
    3. Collect all the Modern Wonders to unlock the Ancient Wonders.
    4. Collect all of the Ancient Wonders to fill your passport and become the World Explorer.
    5. Keep track of your progress on the Wonders of the World page.

     

     

    Until when? When will this end?

    And how many specific geocaches needed to be found within his timeframe?

    Full of wonders, for sure...

  12. Well, just now, checked Mac Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera.

    All four(4) browsers now show the My lists' list ok.

    Oddly, try to show content of any list with the list-of-lists, Mac Safari give an Error that the list is private and does not show anything, somehow, although it's my own list.

    However, Mac Chrome, Firefox, Opera all do show the list's content fine without any error.

    Mac Safari an issue? Version 11.1.2 (11605.3.8.1) on Mac OS 10.11.6 (15G22010).

    (And yes, I know it's old... Planning on getting a new Mac during this COVID-16 pandemic.)

  13. Nope, did not go out to find any geocache today, had plans already, so this campaign is done for me already.

    Too bad for late announcement from GCHQ.

    Really hope that these delayed and also sudden announcements do not happen with any future Geocaching campaigns again.

    A few days? It's already the 24th here and the email came through at 3:44am this morning, so for those of us with an E in front of our longitude, that's less than 24 hours notice. When I went to bed last night I'd planned to go down to Sydney today to do some caching, but have now postponed that so I can at least get off on a positive start.

     

    Ahhh, sorry for not being 'inclusive' and 'considerate' of the E region, and the Southern hemisphere as well.

     

    I wish GCHQ was also more so as well for this campaign. And also hope is a thoughtful for any other future campaigns as well.

     

    Planning on going on vacation for a week from tomorrow, without much thought of Geocaching as traveling together with far-away visiting and non-cacher family. Priorities...

    May need to 'beg' for a geocache find each day...

    Apparently GC HQ decided to close the case way earlier than the official deadline. >:(
    My wife logged a part of her finds yesterday and the rest of it this morning and now should have way more than 35 finds to open the vault. Oddly it stopped at 32 finds. :(
    According to the FAQ the deadline for logging is 12:00 o'clock UTC and she logged before that deadline. I already logged all my finds yesterday and could close the case but not my wife. I did it with the official GC app yesterday but today (this morning) MATM
    already disappeared within the app so she couldn't finish it with the app nor the website.
    Today is her birthday, too, so you can imagine that she's quite pissed ... :(

    From the FAQ:
    "
    Make sure to log your finds and attended logs by August 14 at noon UTC to earn the souvenirs."
    https://www.geocaching.com/blog/2019/06/mystery-at-the-museum-faq/

    (I'm from Germany btw.)

     

    Same issue here!

    GCHQ definitely close the campaign way too soon!

    I have logged my final 35th geocache around midnight last night August 13th in the EDT zone of East Coast U.S.A. which should be still 4 A.M. August 14th in UTC time being 4 hours ahead of EDT.

    I have sent an email the GCHQ Support here contact@geocaching.com.

     

    Oh wait! Just now received a replay from GCHQ, saying I have been awarded the last souvenir, and I do confirm! Hurray!

     

    Hope everyone else logged in time got their last souvenir.

    How would I add a flag counter to my profile?

     

    Just click someone's Flag Counter, or go to http://s11.flagcounter.com/index.html

     

    Set up what you want to have display and how, and then copy and paste the entire HTML code (NOT just the URL) into your Profile page by editing the "About' section in your Profile setting page https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/profile

     

    If you want to learn more about HTML code editing, just look at the actual HTML code of other people's Profile page, study and trace what they do. Trial and error, and that is the way I've self-taught how to edit HTML over these years. ;)

    The web has much much more resources on HTML coding, obviously.

     

    Good Luck & Cache On!
