  1. I have a cache with low health score. I disabled it, replaced it, enabled it and also did an owner maintenance log which I thought would clear the LHS. How do you get rid of the Low Health Score message. What else needs to be done?
  2. I found one of those Dinosaur Train caches but of course the one I found did not have the Partnership attribute. GC2B3CH Wonder why this one was not included? Seems like it was part of this series.
  3. Reading through this forum and looking at the builder document I think I can edit a location but would like if someone who has tried this can answer here. One of the objects in my AdLab moved to a new location and is no longer within a reasonable walkig distance. I assume I can do either of the following: 1. Edit the coords of that stage to match the new location 2. Edit the entire location with new coords/New title/New image/New question as long as I DO NOT delete the stage (trash can button) I am free to edit all aspects of it. Just looking for confirmation. TIA
  4. If you have an iPhone and the Cachly app this can be done by editing the find time of some of the caches found on that date. Not sure how many finds you have but scrolling all the way back to 2017 in the app may take some time. I've found this happens if I save some as drafts and also send a log right away without a draft. Using two different mothids on the same day tends to screw up the ordering due to the time sequence. Logs posted with drafts I believe are just posted with a set time of 12:00 PM whereas a send now log uses the actual time it was posted to the site. Hope that makes sense.
  5. As previously mentioned, it's disappointing I can no longer see archived caches hidden by firends or even from my own list of finds. Every event I've attended I can now no longer see the cache page. Please bring this feature back. There are many reasons to look at archived caches including puzzle solving. The filter says 'Active or Archived" but all you get is active with no way to choose just archived and no way to show both 'Active AND Archived'. I wish there was some way to allow beta testers to try these features first and provide feeback before they were rolled out to everyone.
  6. I tested sending myself an email to a text on my phone from Yahoo and it worked. I then set up mynumber@mobilecarriername.com as spelled out in the help center. I did this under email preferences in my profile. However, it now says 'verify this address'. I have clicked that link and received a text message from geocaching.com. I clicked the link in the text to validate it but it does not validate. It just returns to 'verify this address'. Since I can't get my number validated it is not available as a choice in the email selection when setting up a notification. Has anyone been able to set this up recently?
  7. I think what you've found is a letterbox hidden using a different site. and not a geocache. On that site is a user named SeerMeesh and this may be theirs. You can contact them through that site by username saying you found it by accident. Not sure I can mention the site's name here so if you'd like I'd be happy to send you the link if you message me
  8. Locations for nonsequential Adventures are numbered, ensuring it is clear in which order they can be accessed. Is this a typo? Shouldn't it be for sequential that are numbered? Nonsequential can be done in any order. therefore no numbering needed. I did check a sequential AL and the numbers are there which is a great addition IMO.
  9. Thanks Max! I will be paying extra attention while watching . Oh sorry, I meant my friend will be.
  10. Is GIFF 2021 a souvenir moment? Asking for a friend.
  11. I agree with this. If they are hidden by the user someone viewing their profile will only see the number that are shown. I had a discrepancy myself of 1 where PGC showed 1 more than I was seeing on my public profile. When I went to my souvenirs from my dashboard (on the right side menu) I found the one that was hidden. Once I chose to show it all the numbers lined back up.
  12. Any word if previously recorded scores are going to be corrected? Mine is still showing 450 versus the new and improved score of 750 for finding a cache with 10+ FPs.
  13. So I found 1 cache today to reach the basecamp of Elbron. A mystery with 16 FPs. I thought I would get 650 points for finding a mystery but I only received 450 because the cache had more than 10 FPs. I'll now have to work harder to find caches that have less than 10 FPs if their cache type base value is higher than 450. I think the code should be adjusted where if you find a mystery (or EC or LB) with more than 10 FPs you still get the full 600 points (or 750 or 550). The EC I have on my hit list for Saturday has 12 FPs so I am going to lose another 300 points. Can this be adjusted please?
  14. Maybe the bonus is to solve the equations on the trackables themselves? I found three and have solved Buddies Squared and Irrational Love of Pi. I think I need more info to solve Acutie on Duty. I suppose that could qualify as a 'special math bonus'.
  15. From the promo page: Lastly, there might just be a special math bonus if you’re able to find all five trackables. Get out there and start your own math adventure. There’s a whole world of math love waiting for you. <3 Does anyone know what the special math bonus is if you find all five?
  16. How can this link be edited to filter by a certain cache type? Suppose I want to only see my/some else's multi cache finds?
  17. I have noticed this as well. If I do a normal search (using play/search) then yes, I can tick the boxes and add to a list. If I go to another users profile and then select their list of geocache finds I am also presented these tick boxes but placing a check in them does nothing. It does not give me the option to add to one of my lists. The plus signs also do not work from these lists created from another user's profile. They DO work when doing a search - using play/search. I wanted to place all of a users caches on a list by going to their profile and viewing their list of hidden caches but they can't be added this way. I had to use Play/Search and add the filter Hidden By. However, this only gives active caches and not their entire catalog of hides. If I want to add the archived ones I need to type in the GC number in search then add to a list from the cache page. I am guessing the reason the tick boxes and plus signs do not work form the profile for both finds and hides has something to do with archived caches being part of these lists.
  18. Yep, been like that since the dawn of the app. Would be much more convenient if when you searched a new area if the list presented those search results but, as you found for yourself, it doesn't. It would be easier to get an overview of the available labs in that area instead of having to click the green pin for each one.
  19. Also would like to note that on a phone display as in the OP's post, the hamburger menu can no longer be scrolled so I can't get to the last column to sort by "Placed Date". This had worked prior to the change on April 20. If I want to search for the oldest caches in a state I must use a third party app to do it whereas before this change to the Search, I could use the website on my phone and scroll to the end of the hamburger menu list and then select "Placed On" and hit the column to change the sort order. Can this please be looked into as well. I use an iPhone7 v14.4.2 so the screen is small and all the choices do not fit.
  20. If you are not making a bonus cache (or even if you are) you could always turn the entire adventure off temporarily and disable the bonus cache until the river is back to safer levels. Once everything returns to normal just re-enable the bonus cache (if you have one) and turn the adventure back on to 'public'. That way, no one will miss out on your ultra cool location, which, btw, I can't wait to come find out what it is. I would be upset to read about this ultra cool location in other people's logs knowing I missed out on it because the stage had been temporarily changed to something else.
  21. This is still there. Just presented differently. When looking at your friends list of found caches there is a smiley over the type icon indicating if you've already found it. However, there is no indication you are looking at someone else's list unless you look in the URL. This should be displayed in the list header. What I will miss is the column "Last Found". I like to look at my list of geocache finds and then see if anyone has found the cache since I've been there. This cannot be done on this new list view. Can you please add this column to the "All Geocache Finds" list? As mentioned previously, it would be great if the end user could choose which columns they would like displayed and in what order then save the view. Also, add a filter box for Found Date (similar to Placed Date filter) so you could jump to a section in the list.
  22. Sounds to me that you create drafts when caching and then log your finds later. If you are also doing an Adventure Lab at the same time, those finds are added to your total in real time. So, if you started the day with 2996 finds and found 4 caches and saved them as 'drafts', the fourth draft would be your 3000th cache. But, you also found 5 adventure labs which registered immediately making your total 3001 before logging your drafts. All you really need to do is go into your milestones and select the cache that was your intended 3000th cache. It doesn't matter that the lab caches were registered before your official 3000th cache log was created. It really is just a number at the time of logging. You know which cache was your intended 3000th, so tell the site which one it is by locking in your milestone. No one is going to know after the fact that you logged 5 adventure labs before you changed your draft log into an official 'found it' log. This just happened to me for my 6000th. cache. If you look at my milestones you will see which cache I chose. Because I also did an adventure lab before converting my 6000th cache find draft to an official Found It log, a lab cache was listed as my milestone. I simply went into the milestones and changed it to the intended cache. It's no big deal. I really don't understand all the angst towards lab caches. They have always counted as one smiley per lab stop before there was even an app. I also don't think they should be compared to multis. They are each their own separate cache type for a reason. Multis have multiple stages for one find. Each lab stop counts as a find. It's always been this way, hasn't it? At least since I joined in 2012. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide which caches you want to seek and how much effort you want to put into seeking those caches. Personally, I think labs are a really fun addition to the game. Most everyone I know loves the 5 easy finds and can't seem to get enough of them.
  23. Is this it? It is a Pathtag. Not a geocoin and only trackable on that site. It's a swag item you can keep or deposit in another cache. Me, I would keep it.
  24. True. I used my phone to capture a screenshot of geocaching.com Is this a better screenshot? This is from my chromebook. I think that qualifies as a pc.
  25. You can still page through them by choosing “View all logs” located right above the most recently recorded log.
