  1. Assuming of course, that we all want the same thing, then yes, that approach would work.
  2. Let me google that for you. Hello, I'm new here. After finding a cache, I would like to hide one now. How do I enter the coordinates and what should I pay attention to when registering the new cache? Thank you for posting, but yes, a new thread would be better. Danke für das Posten, aber ja, ein neuer Thread wäre besser.
  3. Only The Frog knows why the key date field is user update-able however by using GSAK you can search by placed date.
  4. Notes (versus Found/DNF logs) may also indicate distance or difficulty. If the cacher has started the multi but not finished it, it likely has difficult components or distance components that make it difficult to complete in a single day. Locally we have a five stage multi that covers 175 miles. Cachers will typically post a note for each stage, but rarely will complete more than one stage in a single outing.
  5. A spell checker maybe, a coordinate checker no. I will usually add a coordinate checker after the first-to-find has been claimed but not before unless it's integral to the puzzle solution.
  6. I move them to "solved" but flag them as "do in the field" so I know what to expect just by looking at the modified cache name.
  7. My solution as well, however I use a custom field. The "user flag" field is too useful for short term filters to dedicate to a single use. In addition, I use the GSAK "tags" to prefix the cache name. In the event that I do need to load non-solved puzzles (caching with a group for example), I can still identify which one's have corrected coordinates.
  8. So a magnetic strip does not meet the guidelines but two magnetic strips do?
  9. I personally would not plug a USB device, found in a cache, into my computer.
  10. When I use the corrected coordinate feature on the cache page and then load the cache into the GPSr I have no way to know if the coordinates are posted or solved. My solution has been to load the cache into GSAK which will retain the new and original and then to load the cache into my GPSr with a flag showing that the coordinate have been changed.
  11. We're in your extended backyard and are looking forward to the Passport Program!
  12. As long as they are sealed properly and the seal kept clean they do okay. As a geocache container, they do not hold up well as people are in a hurry and do not clean/seal them properly. We have found a lot of these in the Chicago area and most have taken on water.
  13. Ahh..... That changes the question from how do I project a waypoint to how do I solve this puzzle.
  14. the only problem with that is that people will just assume that you hide your micros as unknowns and smalls to keep them in people's PQs. people will probably get your unknowns and smalls out of their PQs if they don't like micros, and possibly even put all of your caches on their ignore list. Your choice, but what decides what cache size it is isn't how it's hidden, it's the size of the container that holds the logbook directly. So if I understand you correctly: 1. Drill a hole in a log and pop in a small vial and it's a micro. 2. Drill a hole in a log and put a cap on the hole and it's a large. Sorry, I'm sticking with unknown.
  15. I'm not sure that's enough information. It could be feet, miles, degrees, mils, smoots or a number of other things. Do you have a link to the cache page?
  16. Looks like the coins are in but there are only a handful left. Thanks everyone for your interest.
  17. At one cache I picked up 18 and left 19. Yup, I think it's possible :-)
  18. If it's a travel bug prison, I'll generally release the inmates and not incarcerate any there
