  1. The Virtual Rewards I’ve found have been more interesting than the old Virtual’s I’ve found. That’s probably because the Virtual Reward owners were only awarded one each and in the majority of cases used their Virtual Reward wisely. It also helped that Groundspeak were very selective when allocating the Virtual Rewards. I feel the Virtual Rewards have been a success and a second batch should be allocated to the next set of worthy cache owners. Again keeping them to one per cache owner and excluding anyone who was awarded one last time.
  2. Why don’t you re-visit the Cache sites and obtain information for new / updated questions?
  3. This archived cache GC2TJKV needs locking. Despite repeated logs form the Cache owner asking people not to look for it, people are still logging it and have now turned it into a Virtual since the cache itself is now gone.
  4. I agree in my area Premium Caches earn around twice as many Favourite Points. Comparing the 100 nearest Basic Caches with the 100 nearest Premium Caches to my home location. Total Number of Favourite Points: • Basic = 231 • Premium = 468 Average Number of Favourite Points: • Basic = 2.31 • Premium = 4.68 Number of Caches with No Favourite Points: • Basic = 33 • Premium = 51 Number of Caches with 10+ Favourite Points: • Basic = 7 • Premium = 17 Cache with Most Favourite Points: • Basic = 22 • Premium = 39
  5. How do you create a new List using the new Dashboard?
  6. It’s in Groundspeaks interest to minimise the amount of unmaintained Caches listed on their website, because finding unmaintained caches could put customers (Cachers) off the hobby. Recruiting more volunteer Cache Police is a much easier way of dealing with the problem than trying to change a culture problem in the game.
  7. The problem is most Cachers won’t post a Needs Archived, so the process stalls. Someone like yourself would make a perfect Cache Police Officer.
  8. I think the current system just needs speeding up. Maybe Ground Speak should recruit some more volunteers to act as the Cache Police. If they just focused on Caches with the needs maintenance icon, they’d have plenty to do.
  9. Pokeman Go could lead to more people Geocaching. App stores usually suggest other apps based on your purchase history or other apps customers who also downloaded Pokeman Go purchased.
  10. Thanks for the reply, hopefully someone will create one as it’s a pretty common challenge.
  11. I own a Challenge Cache which requires Cachers to find a Cache that has not been found for at least 1 year (365 days) before the date they found it. I would be happy to add a checker to this cache, does anyone know if there is a checker for this please?
  12. We found 1000 Caches before upgrading from Basic to Premium. The best thing about Premium membership is the ability to create Pocket Quires which lets you download lots of Caches at once. You can still download Caches as a Basic Member but each Cache has to be downloaded individually and only the Difficulty, Terrain, Cache Size & Hint are sent to your GPS. The improved statistics are pretty poor to be honest; in my opinion websites such as project-gc.com give you much more detailed statistics and are available to Basic Members. Premium Caches are no better than Basic Caches. You just get more mag nanos, film cans, clip top boxes as well as some very creative and clever caches. The advantage of upgrading after finding all the local ones is it means you have lots of new Caches to find locally and don’t have to travel 20 miles to find the nearest Cache. We’ll continue to renew our membership as it feels like we’re giving something back to a hobby that’s given us a lot more in return.
