  1. I thought he just meant you could enter the tracking number with your log and be taken to the TB page, without having to go back to the cache page and look for the TB.
  2. Why would you want the site to do that? Because there are valid reasons to 'find' one twice. Personal preference - I can ask for a feature I would want and support, right? I realize, however, that some people will never give up the ability to post multiple Found It's, so it was stirring the pot a little. It's too unpopular, don't do it automatically. Either way, I think "revisited it" is much better than "discovered it."
  3. How about automatically changing subsequent "Found It" logs to "Revisited it," and not adding to find count?
  4. Wow, first four words and the article is already wrong. "Websites like Google Earth"
  5. Heh, you just gave me a great idea! "Count the letters in the fourth name on the sign... add 156... multiply by the # of Jupiters Moons... Take the inverse... square root... multiply by pi... double that... add to that the # of pimples on my butt... These are the coordinates... after you reverse the numbers... go there and take the #of letters in the second name on the new sign, etc. etc. etc. Multiply the answer by zero and add 42 12.345 88 12.345"
  6. "Discovered"? How about "revisited"? I would use this if it were available. Posting an indication that you found the cache is more useful than a note.
  7. OK, then add me as a vote for "omit Mega-events, or make it an option." I couldn't care less about mega-events, and don't want them instead of actual caches.
  8. What am I going to do, open it with WINE? (another Linux user that has no problem with USB drives and would love to find one in the wild)
  9. Can you have an "official" and "unofficial" logo, like Debian? The unofficial one could be modified, but the original kept unchanged for legal purposes.
  10. Earthcaches are coming back to gc.com? News to me.
  11. Arg - google.com has it cached as of Oct 16th, but doesn't have a user account and can't see it.
  12. That's ridiculous. I hope this doesn't get shut down too because of some legal crap.
  13. I don't have a problem with it. I don't understand why people have the mindset that caches should only be visited once. There's nothing wrong with revisiting a cache, TB or no TB.
  14. How about this: when logging a cache, there is an option to select the level of grammatical correctness you will be using? (Now you can't tell how I meant that sentence to come across )
  15. I don't like this idea. I think cachers logging "needs maintenance" or SBA works just fine for abandoned caches. Owners can place caches that will easily last for months or years without maintenance. There's no need to automatically adopt caches.
  16. Hmm - easy way to find the coordinates by checking the source of the script. I'm sure you didn't intend that. Why not have some mathematical way to convert the # into coordinates and then use a coordinate checker as confirmation if they want it? Frontpage??? Don't even get me started on that...
  17. Cool, but that was listed on Halloween. Would anyone revisit a cache with a Halloween bonus?
  18. I'm thinking of doing something special on my cache (GCVAGZ) that already has finders reaching into a dark hole for a scary surprise. The only two ideas I had were webbing inside the hole, and a flashing light, but I fear the flashing light might attract muggles. Would anyone bother going to a cache on Halloween anyway?
  19. Use the Google Maps built-in to geocaching.com (access one via a cache page)
  20. You mean pay me the rent for a hotel on St. James Place, since I already have a monopoly on it, right?
  21. Go your "My Account" page and click the geocaching network .kml link on the lower right.
  22. Isn't that some sort of "smart" quote crap, usually added by Word?
  23. Notes work perfectly fine; you don't even have to bother with remembering the TB tracking number.
  24. What is this: ? For me it comes out as a wierd box, but I'm guessing it's a smart quote or something. Change it to a regular apostrophe and see if that fixes the problem. If it does, all that needs to be done is to remove it from the TB description.
