  1. Can I suggest another option for future souvenir based contests like "Planetary Pursuit"? My thoughts are to include an opportunity to get points for doing one or more maintenance when someone else had reported that your cache needs maintenance or the geocache had had 2 consecutive DNFs the reward would be limited to one cache per day and that no two caches could count within a mile of another cache used for the challenge. A little motivation could do a lot to keep geocaching as much fun as possible for all users.
  2. Is there any way in GSAK to take a group of caches, lets say my hides and change their symbols on mass in a macro or maybe Global replace to maybe an "Ape Cache" icon for lets say 100 caches? I chose the "Ape Cache" because there are no "Ape Caches" in my area!

    Found puzzles

    What would be the point of even having puzzles caches if you could go to the map to locate them? Methinks she is referring to her found puzzles. Exactly only the found ones I don't want to see those that are still out there to be located! My motive is that we can avoid those we have signed when hiding new caches. I have no idea of where 70% were hidden even a few weeks after unless they were special. I have found 509 Mystery Caches, maybe 30 are challenges, ~80% active and most within 20 miles of my QTH which is exactly where I hide new ones. Take care, Misha BTW Misha = Mike in Russian PS: #400 just published

    Found puzzles

    Hello, I feel that having puzzle finals for found puzzles visible would be a good option to reduce the work for reviewers. It would reduce the number of too close hides that makes reviewers need to correspond with hiders. Another thing I would like to have is the ability to save a pocket query from the new search page for premium members. Thank you Misha LeBlanc, CTech Geomatics, CLT Moncton, NB, Canada
  6. I'd recommend critter431's caches
  7. Are we still permitted to host a First to Find Event? One Where people hide caches and get them approved then trade the pages to facilitate getting first finder status? Here is an example of one 9 years ago http://coord.info/GCPXZ7
  8. Sounds fine to me, I have done that on some but left them on others that still had value to me.
  9. Good point Pup patrol but as it is in a very windswept it does depend on the winter; last winter we had 6 meters in the woods (and still have 50cm, May 5th, 2015) yet that location the snow did not cover that cache up. To put the snow flake icon it has to be 1.2 meters off the ground and it isn't. With that said I will remove those icons to eliminate confusion
  10. Are attributes a maintenance issue? Also my printout from when that was hidden showed dog, horse, bike, short hike, less than hour, but not scuba, or boat so how could that have been changed? http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=b7520152-35f7-4482-9a6e-d1db381b6ca3
  11. I like the wait time idea as it can be programmed easily
  12. ranger_jurchik from Liberecky kraj, Czech Republic Member Since:Thursday, 08 August 2013 Found 3 of my missing TBs and Coins some have been missing before they were a member! 7th Anniversary coin, missing since 2011 JFK Bug, missing since 2007 Ten Dollar Bug, missing since 2013 Are the numbers published somewhere?
  13. We should avoid all New Brunswick Protected Natural Areas, and there are allot of them. Restricted or class 1 areas are fully off limits with a $600 fine for intrusion even by being lost! The class 2 sites are to not have ANYTHING left behind. Fines would be enforced on those hiding and finding geocaches, but hiking, camping or non-powered boating is permitted, ALL WASTE MUST BE REMOVED!

  14. I'd like to add these tours and challenges: ME, NH, NB, NS Gulf of Maine Council GeoTour http://www.gulfofmaine.org/2/geocache/ New Brunswick, Canada Great War Geotour http://www.unb.ca/fredericton/arts/centres/gregg/news/geocacheproject.html 20th Anniversary Geocaching Program http://www.sentiernbtrail.com/index.php/en/programs/geocaching-program Falls Brook Geocoin Challenge http://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC5EAP8_fbc-1-fruitifil Thanks Misha
  15. I for one would like nanos to have a size rather than other.
  16. Last night I was entering 18 new hides and that got me thinking why does the website not know what country, and state or province my coordinate falls inside of! It shouldn't be all that difficult to get a generic political boundary map and only ask where the cache is in when it is too close to a border, like maybe 1 km or a thousand yards. Thanks Misha LeBlanc, CTech Geomatics
  17. Looking for info on a cache in NC that involved Scuba diving in a SEWER! If my memory serves, it was/may be in Raleigh-Durham, NC. I thank you in advance for your assistance. Misha LeBlanc Moncton, NB
  18. Simple answer: Host a First To Find Event: Each cacher has hidden one or more caches these "are" approved by a reviewer as good to go but they are set to be published one week after the event giving everyone a chance to be first. This idea came locally from FunkyNassau. It makes for a fun event.
  19. Hello Geocachers, I am seeing more and more caches that in my opinion should be Mystery caches being posted as Traditional hides. These caches include having to do math, complete a puzzle, solve something, etc. These are fine for puzzle caches, IMHO. Traditional caches are said to be find the cache, sign log, done. Where as a puzzle requires the users get additional requirements in order to get credit either before or at the scene. If I am wrong then why do we have challenges and night caches as mysteries with their A.L.R. status? I am hoping for reviewer opinion (esp. Cache Tech - Cache Agent) Examples: Traditionals cube cache (Cacher must get a ball to a spot to unlock door on a container to access logsheet) http://coord.info/GC3XR6H BYOB A cache for Jim52 and Hillbilly Bob (You must bring your own battery then wire a circuit correctly) http://coord.info/GC3AM15 2ool Tyme Too http://coord.info/GC3M91J Setup as a Mystery, as I would expect them to be! ? Tool Time http://coord.info/GC3AKY3 Thanks for any insight. Misha

    Archived Wherigo

    I downloaded a Cartridge proceeded but I didn't locate the cache. When I went to place my log realized that this was archived can the status be shown on the Wherigo site? The Wherigo link: http://www.Wherigo.com/cartridge/details.aspx?CGUID=5046b0b8-9600-49fc-a116-3cf1a31e0fde the GC link: http://coord.info/GC2G1EQ
  21. I would like to have two buttons on the messages within a thread that would permit us to like or dislike any message rather than having to reply and extend any given thread with another response just to add your support or disapproval of any comment ot statement. Thank you, Misha
