  1. Domo!!! Is the site down again, as of 15:20 EST? Geocaching System Status says it's OK http://status.geocaching.com/ though nothing loads. Not even an error. Weird.
  2. It'd also be nice to have a selection of multiple map types including Google and the OSM-based maps. Read this reply from Moun10Bike: "Google requires us to make them the only option when the user selects Google to be his default map." http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=296068&view=findpost&p=5044300 A 'compromise' to bring back Google Maps...
  3. And the zoom controls. Zoom is somewhat hidden underneath the Left-hand panel. Just click on the small arrow to 'fold' it. YES, the scale bar is missing.
  4. No zoom control. Useless. Disabled premium member cache is a grey blob. Edit: No scale. Premium caches look fine with me. To show the Zoom & StreetView, you need to 'fold' the left hand "Search/PQ" area clicking the small arrow in the middle, and they should be on your far-left.
  5. Domo Moun10Bike!!! A 'compromise'... At least we get Google Maps back, and that's definitely a good thing. Thanks for making this happen!
  6. Just tested it. Google Map IS back. Weird that they have separated them from the previous OSM etc. maps. I wish they will change it so you can select them from the upper-right button in the map. I guess it's still a BETA map. Thanks GS!
  7. Domo again!!! Geocaching.com site update May 22nd 2012 http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=296071&view=findpost&p=5044290 Add Google Maps option for Premium Members MAN! It's TRUE! Can't wait to test it out!
  8. I did not see any banners whatsoever late last night nor early this morning. I did not tough the "X" either. Weird. There was no banner at 0400 PDT but it was there at 0900. -- Also came across this a couple of days ago ------ Some months ago Google changed its charging structure for third-party use of Google Maps, which meant heavy users, such as Geocaching.com, had to ditch the service or face significant costs. But now Google Maps are coming back … After Geocaching.com’s planned site update of Tuesday, May 22nd, premium members will once again have access to Google Maps through the Beta Maps page. Best of all, there will be no extra charge to players and all of the current maps (MapQuest etc) will still be available. More details will be released with the Geocaching.com site update notes next Tuesday. Personally, this is welcome news. I completely understood the company’s need to move away from Google Maps – the cost of keeping this option was going to be millions. Yes, we did have a number of different workarounds, however being a user of many different computers I found it a little frustrating to keep installing the scripts or, occasionally, find myself in a browser that didn’t have them. Hey! IF this is true, that would be AWESOME! Yes, only if it's true... Thanks Olddffart!

  10. Domo!!! Sooooo, what's the deal? For how long??? Love to know the details.
  11. Domo again!!! Worst ever. Site dead again. http://status.geocaching.com/
  12. Domo again!!! Site is all dead...
  13. Domo again!!! Normal, everyone? At least for me, yes finally. Thanks up there!
  14. Domo again!!! Status page updated. "Impaired" Oh dear...
  15. Domo again!!! Here's my scheme that leads to Error 500. In Safari, I try to post a log (Found or Note) with a couple of TBs to dip or drop. I hit post, and after a long wait, I get a 500 error. Interestingly, the log is actually posted. Weird thing is, only the very first TB (or sometimes the first few) that has been chosen to visit or drop is done so, and is recorded in the TB page. All the following TBs are not moved properly, and are not logged at all. I try to pass through all TBs I carry even if the y don fit in the cache, for the TB's Mileage & it's traveling history. I really hope this gets fixed soon. ~ Dr.MORO
  16. Domo!!! Really slow here as well, AND getting Error 500...
  17. Domo!!! Having the same issue. Error 500 Starting possibly after the latest site update, or whatever that was yesterday.
  18. Domo, and Thanks DannoBikes! Both D Square and Trolley Park have been proudly adopted by me. I'll take good care of them as long as I can. Good Luck & Cache On! ~ Dr.MORO
  19. Domo again. "Runtime Error" message I just got, trying to access my profile. http://www.geocaching.com/error/error.aspx?aspxerrorpath=/my/default.aspx ---- Server Error in '/' Application. 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>
  20. Arrrrgggg! Not connecting, again!!! What is going on????? Feed & clean the hampsters, even on weekends!
  21. Weird-er. It just seems to have came back online. Someone listening?
  22. Domo!!! Is the site down, or having a problem now? Status page says nothing bad, but I cannot access anywhere Geocaching except for this forum. Weird. Tried Safari & Firefox on Mac OS 10.6.8. No go. What going on?
  23. Domo again!!! Self-quote update. Newly published, at last! Rock Stahs! - The Rock Gahden of MoS Come visit & enhance your Earth Science knowledge!
  24. Domo again!!! Hey! Thanks Capt. Bob, me local Massachusetts cacher! (Love your kinnikuman picture, btw...) Impressive citizen's analysis! And, I learned a bit more about GPS. DOP = Dilution of precision Well, I guess no one can blame the solar fares as the main reason of their DNFs yesterday & today. We all luckily dodged the bullet at least for this time. Yet, beware of the massive solar flare predicted, with a 12 percent chance of one occurring over the next decade. "On the probability of occurrence of extreme space weather events" Devastating... Go Science! ~ Dr.MORO
  25. Domo!!! Location, Location, Location!!! Good Luck & Cache On!
