  1. Are you using a Greasemonkey script (GC little helper)?


    Have you tried CTRL-0 to have default font size?


    Control O while on Geocaching .com opens My Pictures on my computer.


    As for Greasemonkey I have had done nothing to my knowledge when this happened. It just happened while i was on the Geocaching site.

  2. While on my computer at Geocaching.com/my/default page the display changed from a full width of the screen display to a foreshortened width with much smaller font size. I don't find any setting that would cause that.


    If I open these pages under Play, Trackable, Geo Tour, Pocket Query, and Field notes, the same display is presented. If I open these pages under Play, Hide a geocache, View map, Trackable promotions, they display in normal manor on the computer screen.

  3. Not sure why you aren't seeing the GIFF event in your Last 30 Days activity on this page: https://www.geocaching.com/my/default.aspx Maybe it just takes some time for the page to update?


    Regarding the Unknown cache. If you log a find on the Unknown cache, then the cache's question mark icon would change to a smilie on the map.


    FYI -- The GC code in your post (GC5Z0KO) points to a cache in the Netherlands. Did you mean to post GC5Z9KO?


    I have solved the question about "The Lower Cemetery"


    The question still remains as to why my attendance at the Film Festival does not show in my list of recent activities but does show on the caches log page.

  4. I Attended "The International Film Festival" GC6TAHZ last week. My log appears on the cache site but it does not show in my last 30 days activity.


    Another question. How are the finds of an Unknown Caches like "SPG Lower Cemetery"GC5Z0KO defined as found on the map?


    Any thoughts?

  5. This is at least rhe third time you asked this.

    From now on whenever you have a question, look HERE first, rather than posting the same thing a million times.


    Rather than just posting a link some explanation as to how you found my past post would have been helpful. I realized I had asked this before. That is the reason d=for the title.


    I am a significant poster, 6500+, on another forum that has a very poor search function and we advise members to use Google to search within the forum as the results are much better than the forum search function.

  6. I have to ask. I have 2 icons on my I Phone. One open as Geocaching.com and open to my profile page. The other opens to Find Nearby Geocaches.


    I assume the Finding Nearby Geocaches is the app and if that is correct how do I get an icon for my profile page on the i phone?

  7. I have this same question of just loading coordinates into my I Phone. I am not dealing with a mystery cache and the examples listed above do not seam to be available on my phone.


    Try search for a Multi instead.

    After you hit Start, you will see "MORE" above three dots. Choose it and you can create or manage Waypoints... that you can use for any purposes not necessarily related to a given Multi.


    I can see the 3 dots but there is nothing noted in that area of the page

  8. I grabbed a TB that was not activated so I can not log it. I have attempted to contact the cacher that I think placed it but have not heard from him. If he does not respond is there a way I can activate it?


    What's the GC code of the cache where you found it?


    Hopefully it's not https://coord.info/GC6M5D4 Pin Oaks Loop Trail


    Was it just a set of dog tags, or was there something attached?


    If there is no previous logs saying "dropped unactivated travel tags", I would not assume that these are a gift or swag.


    Yes it was Pin Oaks Loop Trail. Curious why you focused on and ask about THAT cache. There was no previous log saying "dropped unactivated TB". looking at the cacher I believe he was just not familiar with TBs and works for the township where the cache is from his user name.




  9. I found this explanation and it answered some questions.




    My current question, since it took so long to download, is I included the option to download "Open Street Map" and question what that meant and would that be useful once in the field?


    Open Street Maps are free maps that you can download to your phone or GPS. Since the map is stored on your phone, there is no data connection being used to display the map. With a PQ saved on the phone and an offline map like Open Street Maps saved on your phone, it will be fully operational while there is no data connection or if the phone is placed in airplane mode.


    Thanks that works

  10. 1. Are you using an "update coordinates" log type? (You can't edit the listing directly.)

    2. Are you entering the new coordinates in the formatted fields provided?

    3. How far away is the new location from the old location? (the maximum is 528 feet.)


    For more information, see this Help Center article.


    The problem seamed to hinge on the selection of the type of coordinates I entered. There is a selection of 3 types. One would assume that the original type used would be what would appear when you attempt to change them. That was not the case. Once I selected the correct type they were accepted
