  1. Just curious--what do old logs say? Do they mention this as a problem, or is it all TFTC?
  2. I think it's perfectly fine for kids to log their parents' caches.
  3. In my opinion, since you ask, it's not a find. DNF
  4. Creating your own EC for a place you visited and logging someone else's as a find are not the same thing.
  5. It sounds like you haven't done the EarthCaches. Not sure why you are asking us to validate your behavior. You didn't do them properly--own it and do them some other time.
  6. One thing you might sacrifice with your approach is out-of-towners. I'm not saying I'd avoid your puzzles if I lived in your neck of the woods, but if I was on a long trip and simply swinging through your area, I would avoid them knowing that I might not get it right the first time like I would with confirmed coordinates.
  7. +1 to Walts Hunting and Joshism! Help a rookie out, and never go that far for a FTF if it's a person's first hide!
  8. +1 I have a variety of reasons for not using checkers for some of my puzzles, but I never refuse to verify coordinates when asked. If the coordinates are wrong, I can usually tell why and I additionally offer a hint to help the solver go in the right direction. For me as a puzzle creator, the joy comes from people successfully solving the puzzle. It's not some kind of me vs. them competition, but at the same time there is no fun for either me or the seeker if I just give them the solution. It requires (*gasp*) some judgment and common sense on my part. +1
  9. On the first search page, go down to the right and click on "take me to the old search," and search by state--for Ohio. You'll get 'em all.
  10. Wow, the new app is awful, just awful. it's slow, it's hard to use, it's nothing like the old app. Why didn't they take the classic app and update it with introductions for newcomers and the message center, etc.? I really, really hate this new app. The classic app worked perfectly well--it did everything I ever wanted it to do. I've lived through a lot of changes to the website and caching since 2010--but this is by far the worst--the very worst--thing Groundspeak has done. I've always defended GS (well, until a lackey placed a throwdown in Washington last summer) because change is inevitable. But change from a functional app to a complete mess? I can't defend that.
  11. This is not true. Re-read the announcement and prior posts from Geocaching HQ Lackeys. Sorry, Keystone--but it's not clear to me at all. Will the classic app work after March 23 (and then the June date mentioned) or not? That seems like a pretty simple questions--will the app still function? Why won't anybody tell us?
  12. New App: I set it to filter out my finds and caches, but it persists in listing and showing the four closest finds to my home anyway. Burying my actual PQs that I want out in the field in with the lists I have on the website is a major pain in the neck. Not being able to save the lists to my phone is not acceptable--when I travel out of the country, I need to have those on my phone since I don't want to use data internationally to find caches. Not being able to show lists/PQs on maps makes the lists nearly useless out in the field. As others have said--why in the world is this app released only to be fixed on March 23? Why not release it March 23, fully functional? I understand the classic won't be updated, and I don't care--but if I'm reading the info right, is it true that it won't even be functional after June? That is just all kinds of wrong--I LOVE my paid app, it does everything I want it to do. Why take it away?
  13. I set my time zone to London, looked at your profile, and now it shows it as 3/01. I bet you have your time zone set incorrectly. I would be willing to swear that I checked all that yesterday, made sure etc., but apparently I wasn't in the right place for settings. I went looking again, and you're right--I had it set to London time! It's all fixed now, the date shows as the 29th! Oh man--I could kiss you! Thank you, thank you! I checked yesterday, but apparently not in the right place! If a mod wants to close this topic, that would be fine. Problem solved!
  14. Hi, Keystone--no: I'm looking at my souvenir page right on my public profile at geocaching.com.
  15. That's not what I see--the one for the event reads: Acquired on 03/01/2016 That's odd. Below is what I see when I look at the Souvenirs tab of your profile. Both say 2/29. If you are seeing something different when you look at your profile, then that is a different bug that you may want to submit to Groundspeak: That's just weird! For me it reads 3/1! And for people at my event that logged it a little before me, I see "3/1" on their page, too!
  16. That's not what I see--the one for the event reads: Acquired on 03/01/2016
  17. So I logged my event at 9:08 pm EST yesterday, and got a date awarded of 3/1. What the heck? I contacted Groundspeak, and here was the reply: ## Reply above this line or click the link below to add a note to this request ## Hello Dame Deco, Thank you for writing in to us. Unfortunately, the date on which a souvenir was awarded cannot be changed. It will reflect the date, in Pacific Standard Time, on which the log which earned the souvenir was sent. All the best, I'm very, very confused--Pacific Standard Time is EARLIER than EST, so why doesn't my souvenir have the right date? This happened to me last summer--a physical cache came back with the right souvenir date, and an event the same evening came back as the next day. I let it go because it didn't matter last August, but now I want my souvenir date to be 2/29! What can be done about this? I know they can erase souvenirs--why not erase mine and let me relog or something? I didn't reply to the post because the directions above didn't seem to fit anything I was seeing on the computer screen. Anyone else have this problem? I logged at a little after 9 pm last night, I got the souvenir immediately, dated for the next day.
  18. Just google it. I usually do that to find caches. Caches in Bermuda? I google "geocaching in Bermuda." Oldest active caches? Just google that, and tons of bookmark lists come up. I rarely use the search function on geocaching.com.
  19. I think that the upcoming Megevent probably had something to do with GS taking action when they did.
  20. I think you just did. They removed it before a megaevent to stop tons of folks from getting an attribute that didn't belong with the cache.
  21. Mine crashed every time I tried to open it a dozen times just now. Not sure what happened--it was working fine last month. Hmmm...it stays open when I have the location disabled. I can still search with it, of course--but not "nearby" with the location enabled. And "no be.nch marks found" when I put in my zip code.
  22. Nice job! Everything's frozen solid in Ohio right now--I'm hoping to do some detecting when spring comes.
  23. Yep, it's gone. Now why would they do that?
  24. I think the most important rule would be that anyone placing a challenge should be someone who has met the requirements.
