  1. We are not presently planning on daily souvenir releases. Presently, there are 5 geographic souvenirs that have been granted retroactively, and can be gained moving forward by any user who goes geocaching in the region: Delaware, Baden-Württemberg, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Bayern.
  2. U.S. state souvenirs are being released (and retroactively granted) in order of statehood. Hopefully this will keep your interest level rising!
  3. Earlier today, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Bayern were released, and granted retroactively! Enjoy!
  4. The devs have been informed of this. Thanks for the report! Are you allowing the phone and the app to access location data?
  5. Correct. Delaware and Baden-Württemberg have been granted retroactively to all those who have logged caches in those states. Moving forward, other state (and national) souvenirs will undergo this process as well. We will be opening a souvenirs section on User Voice. In the meantime, please use one of the existing souvenirs threads for providing additional feedback. Are they present on your profile, or in one of the Geocaching apps?
  6. We've done another pass to correct this issue. Please let us know if anyone still has either of these souvenirs erroneously. Thanks.
  7. As of the new update to the site, this issue should be corrected, including the removal of the souvenirs from those who received them in error and retroactively granting them to those who have earned them. Thanks for your diligence!
  8. The awarding of the Delaware and Baden-Wüttemburg souvenirs was the result of a bug that has been corrected. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

  15. mvsopen, Souvenirs are profile wide. There is presently an issue with the iPhone app failing to update its list of souvenirs. If you reinstall the app, it should display all of your souvenirs. This issue will be fixed in the next release. I hope this helps.
  16. Addisonbr, Presently the Project APE souvenir is for mission 9, to be a part of the triad. We will keep you posted if other Project APE caches receive souvenirs in the future. I hope this helps.
  17. Good news! We have retroactively granted souvenirs to those who are entitled to them!
  18. Hi everyone! People have been wondering about our plans for souvenirs. I'm happy to inform you that starting in early November, we'll be rolling out more souvenirs for everyone to discover! MissJenn wrote up a Knowledge Book entry for souvenirs, so check in there if you have any questions: http://support.Groundspeak.com/index.php?p...page&id=272
  19. Thanks for the good questions! In regards to any questions about souvenir submission, we are not presently accepting souvenirs from users. If this changes at some time in the future, we will let the community know. As for an official channel to suggest new souvenirs, we will make such a channel open at such time as we're ready to handle such requests. I assume that you are using the term "qualifiers" to refer to the criteria which much be met to receive a given souvenir. Please correct me if I'm wrong in this assumption. Some souvenirs are awarded for their geographical location, while others are awarded for attending a specific Mega-event. These are going to be the main types of souvenirs for the time being. We are not intending to make souvenirs for individual caches for the time being. I guess I just saw it in terms of opting out of souvenirs. I can see the arguments in favor of opting out of souvenirs as easily as I can see the arguments in favor of opting out of similar public accomplishments. I'd be interested in hearing more from James about it. I'm a little unsure about what you'd like to hear from me. We are going to provide users a means to not receive souvenirs if that's what they want.
  20. Hi, I'm James, a Groundspeak Lackey. I'd like to answer a couple of the common questions that have come up in this thread. 1) We will be granting souvenirs retroactively. 2) We will also be providing "opt-out" functionality for those users who don't want to receive souvenirs. I'm happy to answer any other questions or address other comments that you all have. Thanks!
  21. Hello everyone! I'd like to take this opportunity to help clarify some of the questions people have about souvenirs. Hopefully this will answer most of your questions. What is a souvenir? A souvenir is a piece of art, with some associated text, that users receive for caching, and can display on their profiles as well as in the iPhone and Android apps. How do you get one? 1. One way is to do a search from either the iPhone or Android app while within the zone of the souvenir, during the time that it is active. 2. Another is by logging a cache within the zone of the souvenir, during the time that it is active. 3. It should be noted that some souvenirs, such as the 10/10/10 souvenir, do not have a physical zone and can therefore only be acquired via logging a cache. Will any log type get me a souvenir? No. Only a log of Found It, Attended (for an event), or Picture Taken (for web cam cache) will result in the awarding of a souvenir. Are souvenirs only available for a limited time? Some are. For example, souvenirs for Mega Events can only be acquired during the duration of that Mega Event. Other souvenirs can be acquired indefinitely after they are released. What if I have already been to a location that has a souvenir associated with it? We're working on a solution for being able to retroactively award people souvenirs for going to places and logging caches that now have souvenirs with no end date associated with them.
