  1. I hate it when people do only smartphone coordinates or GPS coordinates. It drives me bonkers trying to convert coordinates to diffrent formats- It's a very hard process. Does anyone agree?
  2. Wouldn't that be labled as a multi or a mystery?
  3. Does anyone know what kind of camera I will need to aquire?
  4. Hello Everyone! I had a quick question. I was wondering if it is possible to make a webcam Letterbox. What if I put a cache and a camera somewhere and said that the cache was in the line of vision from the camreas view? would that count as a "clue?" Thanks! -Dennis
  5. No problem! That's what the forums are for, right? Groundspeak may do another round of virtual rewards, but they are more likely to give it to the cacher that has more experince hiding caches. If you are serious about getting a virtual reward, I would get dome more hides under your belt. Good luck!
  6. I think we may be on to something I will contact my reviewer and ask if this is acceptable.
  7. so I can't make the webcam a requirement, only a sugestion?
  8. I have never tried this myself- can you still add ALRs?
  9. This is what I read. All credits go to The vinny and sue team for teaching me this. A note to the OP: While it is true that webcam caches have been eliminated as a cache type, it is still entirely possible, and in fact, quite easy, to place a webcam-involved cache as follows: Emplace a cache container at or near the area surveyed by a webcam of your choice, and list the cache as an additional logging requirement (ALR) cache, that is, as a "?" type, which is a category which subsumes ALR caches as well as mystery/puzzle caches. Then, on both the cache listing page and on notes in the logbook and in small cards which you will place inside a small ziplock bag inside the cache, you will explain that this cache is an ALR cache, and that the additional logging requirement is that anyone wishing to claim a find must not only sign the logbook, but must also upload to their find log entry on the cache listing page an image (a screen shot) taken from the webcam site of the finder standing at a specified spot within the range of the webcam. You see, the primary complaint about the webcam cache type was that the "caches" did not employ a cache container and did not require signing a logbook (in fact, there was no logbook to sign...), whereas the ALR approach described above neatly takes care of all these loose ends.
  10. Isn't it possible to still hide a webcam but label it as a mystery? I thought I read that somewhere
  11. I think that Webcam rewards would be a great idea and I would love to see more webcams. However, Virtuals and webcams were grandfathered manly because geocaching should be about finding physical things. The problem with sites like Waymarking is that there is too many virtual caches. future webcams would further aggravate the problem. Nevertheless, I would love to see webcam rewards!
  12. I think that geocaching was created for everyone. I realize that some geocaches are more serious than others, but geocaching was designed to get people outside, no matter the age. However, I can understand the frusturation of seeing a baby log a found on a puzzle or creating a community celebration.
  13. Hey everyone! I had a quick question. I was wondering why Groundspeak made it so that adventure labs don't show up on the map? I think that virtuals have one big advantage over adventure labs, They don't require a live app. If they were going to keep on doing this, why not have a live app for wherigos? I never would have known about them if my friend hadn't told me. This baffles me. Does anyone know why? Thanks! -Dennis
  14. *Warning: noob question! Hey everybody! I was just wondering if it is possible to keep your own travel bug. I bought a stuffed Signal the frog and thought it would be cool if I purchased a TB to put around it's neck. I was planning on bringing it around to events. Can I do this? Thanks! -Dennis
  15. I Thought that this thread was supossed to be about admins disabling caches, not trains! And yes, you should probably stop for a single locomotive. just one locomotive could take out a tank!
  16. I think they may do more after this whole mess with the caronavirus. I'm just speculating though!
  17. Hello everyone! I have a quick question. I was wondering how to hide a lab cache. From what I read you have to go to a mega event, but the post was old and I am unsure if this info is outdated or not. Thank you! -Dennis
  18. Yes I did. After 2 or more DNFs, I always check on my caches
  19. If you want to see some newer caches, I would reccomend hiding some caches yourself so other cachers don't feel the same way. Hiding a few new caches can get you a bunch of favorites.
  20. is it possible to un-archive a grandfathered cache?
  21. I think webcams are pretty cool. I would like them to come back with some changes.
  22. Huh- I've never had this happen to me. I have had 4 DNF's in a course of 5 days (the cache was still there, I checked) and it wasn't disabled. I think this may vary with reviewers. I've found that The NY reviewer is usally reluctant to disable caches unless nessasary.
