  1. I used to feel that way, until a local cacher pointed out that there's no need to get them all and there's something for everyone. I think power caching is stupid, but no one's forcing me to do power trails. There are plenty of quality caches out in the woods I can go for that provide exercise and make me happy. For those people who only care about numbers or tiny hides in urban areas, there are caches for them, too. Geocaching has plenty of room for everyone.
  2. I had that problem recently. You need to import your antivirus program's certificate into FF. I use Kaspersky, and it attaches its own certificate to websites before sending them on to the browser. If your browser doesn't recognize the AV certificate, it rejects the page as a security risk. C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\AVP17.0.0\Data\Cert\(fake)Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal Root Certificate.cer
  3. Agreed. I had the same issue lately. Being able to browse through the caches by attribute would be helpful to me, too. I don't want to run a pocket query because I want to select the caches I want to load onto my GPS individually off the map, not all of them.
  4. I'm looking for GCCO geocoins: http://www.geocachingcolo.com/gcco-geocoins Preferably unactivated, but I'll take activated if it's transferable. Please message me if you can help. Thanks.
  5. I don't like it either. It seems pointless. I specifically put on the trackable page that I don't want people doing that. Of course, my trackables also vanish almost as fast as I release them, so it's a bit N/A for me. I don't put them out anymore.
  6. I wasn't happy with the map changes either. You used to be able to zoom in on the default map and all sorts of info would pop up, but now you have to try the various map options in the corner to find what you want.
  7. I'm currently going through the never-ending oakcoins activation problem myself. I have never been able to get an activation code from their website; I always have to email them. But now they're not even responding to emails. I'd avoid this company if you can.
  8. I bought the auto-renewal (because I had to), but now the website still keeps asking me to renew. It doesn't show in my account that I already have.
  9. MC stopped working for me maybe two weeks ago. It's a good think you can reply to messages from the notification email. I use Chrome version 52.0.2743.116 m. And yes, I cleared my cache and browsing history.
  10. It's not working for me, either. I've tried both Chrome and Firefox, and tried reloading the page. This has been going on for a couple of days now.
  11. Yes, I've just noticed that as well. What's up with that? Can't the webpage remember my map preferences anymore? I prefer Thunderforest OpenCycleMap, but now I have to select it every time.
  12. The problem with poison ivy is that the stems are as bad as the leaves. In winter, when the leaves fall off, it's almost impossible to correctly identify the stems and avoid them. They just look like any other twigs out there.
  13. Excellent. I'd like to see this implemented, too.
  14. I didn't know the 30-mile limit was gone, which is good, although the 1000-limit could be a problem. I tend to start at 2/2 and revise upwards. Most of my problems have been with the range limit though, so the change is a good start. I'll try it out today. Thanks!
  15. You can do it with cache types. Would it be that much harder with D/Ts? Perhaps it is and that's why we don't have it yet. Maybe one day.
  16. I don't want to do a PQ. It takes too much time and gives me too many caches I don't want. I want to be able to quickly switch between different D/T combos over a large area so I can easily pick out the ones I'm interested in. Maybe I don't want one next to an interstate, or one in the middle of a downtown area (no parking), or one in the middle of a park. I want to be able to look at a map and browse around.
  17. This has probably already been brought up, but it would be very useful for me to be able to screen caches by D and T on the main map. I know I can do that using the search function and specifying a location, but that isn't very helpful when I want to look over a wide area or along a route. I also know I can do a PQ for that information, but that's time consuming and I'd have to delete all the caches I don't want afterwards; that could be hundreds. I want to be able to browse around a state or along a road looking for certain D/Ts that I might want to go get. I also want to be able to change the D/T I'm looking for quickly and easily, not have to perform a new search just because I can't find any good 2/2 caches and want to bump it up to 2/2.5.
  18. This website isn't free. If you enjoy this hobby, it makes sense to support it financially, otherwise you're just mooching off those who are paying an annual fee.
  19. I've tried using the app a few times, but I find it very inaccurate. It changes its mind constantly once you get anywhere near the cache, jumping about like a Mexican bean. Maybe I just don't know who to use it properly, but I'll take a real gps any day.
  20. Was it a matter of "good enough"? Or was it a matter of knowing whether or not the single-character log was pocket dialed by some muggle who installed a free app? Does it matter? Unless you have a legitimate suspicion the log is bogus (logging in three countries in one day, for example), then you're deleting a valid log just because you don't like it. I think that's wrong. From what I understand, you're required to put something in the message field or you can't log the find. Perhaps the cacher doesn't want to say anything so hit a random key to satisfy the logging software. Sure, that's a crappy way to log anything and a slap in the face to the CO, but it isn't against the rules of the game.
  21. I don't know that I've ever seen anyone suggest that longer, meaningful logs should be required Apart from the two cachers on this page who admit to deleting logs they don't think are good enough.
  22. While it would be nice to have a way to encourage meaningful logs, there's a sense of entitlement I get from some cache owners that good logs are somehow required. All the finder is technically required to do is sign the log sheet and select "found it" when logging it online (not counting challenge caches, of course).
  23. I'm not sure how a visitor would know what's normal for your area. They have little to go on but their own experience.
  24. That's generally my feeling about it. If the cache is in town somewhere, then it's not such a big deal to get the coords wrong. You can always try again with little lost. But if it involves hiking 2 hrs into the wilderness, then I'd be pretty bummed not to find it after that much effort. I've never had a CO not help me out if asked.
