  1. Oh yes! Doh. I'm sure the percentage wasn't right earlier, but seems to be ok now. Cheers.
  2. Hi all, after getting a new cache published today i noticed that a DNF counted towards the number against which the percentage favourited is calculated against. Unless i'm mistaken (and please forgive me if there's an obvious good reason for this) this doesn't seem right. Shouldn't the percentage be calculated from the found logs with favourite points against total found logs? Cheers
  3. Passed here again the other day and now it's gone!! Poof! Magic! Probably some kind of bus service tracking project as mentioned above.
  4. Here is the first one, i passed this the other day and it made me look twice. Not sure it would be a cache in such an open place but it still made me look nevertheless.
  5. Hey all, since starting geocaching i often see things which sparks the 'found it!' synapses in the old grey matter, but actually aren't geocaches at all. Sometimes these things even give me inspiration for hides. I'm sure this happens to others too. This thread is a place to post pictures of all these things which confuse and inspire us.
  6. J Grouchy: that's awesome! Thanks. Can you get to this through the navigation bar? Can't seem to find a way. Ah, got it

  8. Hi all, for when you are scouting the map area looking for possible places to locate a geocache. Like when you right click on Google maps to get the co-ords, which you then have to go to the query page with cutting and pasting a few times; it would be useful with a right click on the Geocaching map to see the proximity of other local caches so you know if it's a viable location, like when you do a "find caches near these co-ords" query. I know this wouldn't work for the secret locations of physical stages or mystery caches.
  9. Hi DD, thanks for the reply, I think that's if you are a standard member (i'll be renewing my membership when i get home, away with work at the mo and not keen on sending CC details over 3G), also i think this is the same for all API partners.
  10. I'm not complaining about this, i'll be getting a WP soon, just wondered if anyone may know why it's free for WP and you have to pay on other platforms. It is the official app right? http://www.windowsphone.com/en-gb/store/app/geocaching-live/33e84192-f9f3-425a-840d-dd2907808b33 Any ideas?
  11. Hi Steelspace, thanks for the info, i like the fact that you've made the maps available offline, i'll certainly be looking at your app if i go for the windows phone. Can you submit live logs too or is it only offline submission of logs? I like to submit them from teh field as it gives the CO a real time experience of me finding their caches.
  12. One bad hint I particularly remember when there were loads of very similar trees in a bouncy gps spot: "base of tree"! Are you kidding me?!! So I basically have to search all the bases of the trees, something I would have done if there was no hint at all.... useless!
  13. Hi thanks for your reply, that helps a lot, i'm using android at the moment.
  14. I've had a Cache published closer than .1 miles with a significant physical barrier in place. Ask the revier, you never know. ALso I don't think it's bad form to politely ask someone if they'd consider moving if you explain your plans. If none of those work, just accept it and look elsewhere. Good luck and welcome back []
  15. Hi guys, i'm due a phone upgrade and i'm considering going over to the windows phone. I've done some youtubing/googling but can't find many reviews of this app, likewise apologies if this has been covered here before. One review i saw (which was in german!! (told you they are sparse!! ) Good job the girlfriend speaks it fluently!!) said when you exit the app, if you go back in you have to start from the beginning again, is this true? On the android, if you come out of the app with the back button all the way you have to start from the beginning, but if you come out of the app with the home button, then it's in the same place you left it, this is very useful when you're on a trial and want to preserve battery, or look at something else, a text for example. What are your opinions of the windows phone geocaching app in general? Bad points and good? Many thanks.
  16. I have a cache that has been targeted twice now, the first time they took the box and contents but left the log book in the self sealing bag, very strange! The second time the whole lot has gone. I've thought it was a cacher at first but then maybe some kids who have discovered it, who knows?! I was bummed about it the first time (especially as it was my first hide, kinda feels like a special one) but now it doesn't bother me, i'm thinking of just archiving and having done with it. None of my other caches have been targeted though so i don't think it's someone who's out to get me. That must be so frustrating having lots of your caches targeted, i think if it were me i'd consider starting again with a new profile, five years is too much, we should be able to enjoy our game without all the nastiness and politics.
  17. Research will provide good inspiration but ultimately truly creative caches will come from your own genius. Break from the norm, think outside the box, learn from what the great caches have shown you and go create...........
  18. YES!!! Really pleased with how GS has made the pictures in the gallery scroll without leaving the light box. Well done GS.
  19. I build instead of buying, so DIY shops are my geocaching shops. The only thing i may buy is WITR logs, which i already have a supplier i use, but i would take a look at your shop if you are based in the UK.
  20. You can already do that. Push "View on External Map". The cache will appear and be available for turn by turn directions. Cool, i never knew this, thanks.
  21. mmm, some good points made, i agree that a system can always be improved, and on reflection, although it could be abused (as most things can), on the whole the benefits would outweigh the negatives.
