  1. Does anyone have a link for the old search to see all of a specific type of cache for a player. For example, I would like to see all the earthcaches I have found in the old search format?
  2. Can you add the last found column to the search results. I use that info all the time.
  3. I completed the Natural Wonders a couple days ago. I have since found a few caches and have gotten no credit for any of the solar system wonders. Are they available yet or is there something else that needs to happen?
  4. Yesterday I logged 20 caches on my computer (the only way I ever log caches) in the order I found them. I attended a CITO event, found 3 traditionals, then 2 mystery caches, then attended a regular event, followed by 2 more traditionals, an earthcache, and then the rest of them were traditionals. Everything was in the correct order, except that it moved the regular event as if it were the second cache I logged instead of the 7th. This seems like a basic feature to put the caches in the order they were logged. Can someone correct this?
  5. I'm getting no response when trying to go to my default home page (clicking on user name in top right hand corner of screen). Managed to get to some cache pages by going through GSAK. Once there, I can bring my profile up, but if I click on "All Geocache Finds", I also get no response.
  6. Just tried it again and I was able to get in and log the couple of caches I found today. Looks like it is working for now.
  7. The website keeps asking me to log in. When I do, it will show my user name like I am logged in, but if I try to do anything like look at a cache page, it tells me I have to log in again. Anyone else having this problem?
  8. I am continuing to get 500 errors today as well. Could the powers that be please fix this?
  9. I haven't found as many as quite a few others, but I guess what seems like alot will vary from person to person. As long as new caches come out, I don't have to travel so far. Putting only detectives (that don't help with the promotion after you have already found one) on new caches is the disadvantage. I am curious as to why the powers that be decided to set it up that way. Quite honestly, I am more interested in challenge caches than these promotions, but since some challenge caches require a certain number of souvenirs, I try to do them when they are available.
  10. I'm not sure I would call it a penalty, but it is set up so that avid cachers are at a disadvantage because many who have found most of the caches near their home location do have to go a long way to get the clues/jewels. In my opinion, they should assign clues/jewels to new caches, so those who are in this situation have a shot at getting different clues close to home. Assigning all the new caches as detectives (which are no longer useful after you find one of them) makes it much more difficult.
  11. I've been getting quite a few 404 errors this morning.
  12. I was signed in and working, then the site hung. When it came back, it appears that I am no longer logged in. When I try to log in, I get the 500 error.
  13. Please keep the old map. Limiting the number of caches that can appear on the map to 1000 is a step backwards. If there are caches on the map that I am looking at, I want to see them all. I also don't care for combining filters with maps. If I am looking for certain types of caches, once I find one, I still want to see the other caches that are around it.
  14. I'm using Chrome on Windows 7 and it has been slow all morning, but I eventually get to where I am trying to go. Sometimes it is pretty much normal, but other times it takes a while.
  15. Still having the same problem, a day later. The map I am referring to is when you click on the "View Larger Map" link that is above the smaller map on the cache page. This normally shows all the caches in the area, but the icons appear very briefly and just disappear.
  16. I've had the same thing happening. I am using Chrome.
  17. None of the caches I logged today, with today's date (08/13/17) are showing up for me. I really don't need the gold coins as I had enough already, but the newer ones are not showing up at the moment.
  18. I think project-gc already offers something like this.
  19. I chose the "opt out" feature. There is plenty of space on the screen as it is and no need to make it smaller. Quite honestly, you should be doing the opposite and making things bigger and use the full amount of space on the screen.
  20. Tear the bandage off, I say. Maybe painful at first, but the rare exceptions (which I still don't personally feel SHOULD be exceptions) don't really justify the frustrations that the multiple logging can cause. To set a standard now and move foreword with it is good, but to go back and attempt to rewrite history will cause lots of problems. Like I said before, I highly doubt they would delete existing duplicates. I don't see anything indicating they would do that. I'm certain they'll let existing duplicates stand and moving forward will just block new duplicates from happening. The exceptions are not so rare for those who started in this hobby early.
  21. It seems as though not much thought has gone into this. As you can see just from the posts on this thread, there are all sorts of exceptions for caches set up during the early days of caching that were approved of at that time. Perhaps Groundspeak should reconsider this.
  22. Why bother when cache owners were creating caches named "Yellow Banana Cemetery State Park Zero 01" and you could complete like 9 different challenges with one stupidly named LPC? I guess I didn't have anyone doing that near me, not that anyone should have been doing that. But to answer your question, it was a lot more fun and interesting to go get caches that were not placed for that reason...
  23. All of the challenge caches published prior to April 2015 are grandfathered and can still be found. That doesn't leave any room for anything new in that area does it? The premise that was stated that these caches are just an exercise in database management is pretty inaccurate. I made special trips to get caches with unusual names to meet challenges and it took me to places I would otherwise probably not have gone. At this point, the challenges like this that I have left to do are getting pretty far away from home for me to get to, so it would be nice if some new ones that were closer to home could be created. And yes, I will probably do some of the grandfathered ones when I have the opportunity to do so.
  24. I'm glad they are not gone completely, but it looks as if the ones that were most interesting to me, have been eliminated. The offbeat ones using cache names will be particularly missed.
