  1. If you don't have the code anymore, you can message the trackable owner and give them the info (what cache it is in). They can clean up the history. Or, as you say, leave notes in both caches (the one to say it's really not there, the other to say it really is).
  2. The terrain may have changed significantly, or the difficulty (sometimes they'll get easier when suddenly there's a resource now available to find it more easily). D/T ratings are supposed to reflect the current situation, not be static to fill someone's grid for all eternity.
  3. Wow - there are some old ones there! Too bad I'm not in the area. https://www.geocaching.com/play/results/?sa=1&sd=0&hb=Nature+Noggins&asc=false&sort=placeDate EDIT: Try these two Facebook groups: https://www.facebook.com/groups/32214454547/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/834750616668401/
  4. I can see the abuse now: a group of cachers dislike a cache owner and gang up to put low scores on their caches. Bam - automatic archival. I agree with the others: Needs Maintenance logs, followed by Needs Archived logs.
  5. Yep. I never see ads like that. *shrug*
  6. Probably the same thing as in a previous thread: https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/382091-whats-the-deal-with-the-maps-section-just-languishing-in-non-maintenance/#comment-6034922
  7. You're a basic member, so I don't know if what I can do on the map is what YOU can do on the map. But here's how I find them: Go to the browse map: https://www.geocaching.com/map/#?ll=43.00000,-78.00000&z=13 (and go to your area) On the left sidebar it has "filterable cache types". Click the colored dot on the first 4 rows, which will fade them out and hide all those cache types from the map. On the left sidebar, click the dark blue Mystery icon and Wherigo icon (the 1st and 3rd dark blue icons). This should leave the map with only LBHs. Zoom in/out and pan around to find them.
  8. Please don't start a crap storm. That is likely to do much more harm than good.
  9. Can non-premium members "watch" a cache page (i.e. receive emails about caches)? I didn't think they could. A little searching suggests it's a PM feature: https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=7&pgid=144
  10. I don't believe so. You'd have to delete all the logs on the TBs to "reset" them.
  11. Is this a separate app that people would have to download and install? I don't think that's allowed.
  12. I'm pretty sure it would require a separate number, unless you set it up so that anyone not on your contacts list goes to voice mail, but everyone on your contacts list still gets through to you. (I'm not sure this is technically feasible for all phone companies/plans.) Your best bet is probably a VOIP phone number. They're fairly cheap, although not free.
  13. Now, looking at your profile, it looks like the cacher did find it and put it in a cache? They should have logged a retrieval/drop. If you want, you could "grab" it, then log a drop into the cache they mention (it will require a Write Note on the cache page).
  14. (1) Be sure it was a legit discovery and not a bot or something, logging random tracking numbers. (2) It's available now, even when showing as missing. It's just logged as being in an "unknown location." When someone retrieves the TB and logs it, it'll automatically jump out of "unknown location" and into their hands. Then when they drop it into a cache and log it, it'll show up as being in that cache. It won't show up in your inventory until you retrieve it yourself.
  15. So do we have to differentiate in the T rating depending on the type of boat? Motorized, T5, but non-motorized, less?
  16. I'm no expert, but I THINK it takes a while for such a change to show up in stats and leaderboards. How long ago did you make the change?
  17. How would you police this? If you require the finders to send you a PM or email with their solving method, that's an Additional Logging Requirement and not allowed. If you go with your intuition, that will easily be overruled by Appeals. So no, I'm pretty certain that if they sign the log, they can log a find, regardless of how they got the final coords. It sucks, but sometimes people suck.
  18. CO's should never send out nastygrams to people who have posted a NM log. Never. They should THANK them for caring to report a problem with their cache - the cache they agreed to maintain, when they clicked the check box indicating they read and agree to the terms of cache ownership when submitting the cache for publication. If they can't maintain their caches, they should either have others adopt them or they should retrieve and archive them. They should NOT expect the community to maintain them. So there.
  19. I'm not a boomer, but I like the idea of prohibiting an emoji as the very first character in a cache title. Express yourself all you want in the rest of the title. It's about accessibility and inclusiveness. I thought millennials were all about that. Question for those who experience this: does a space count as a character that allows the rest of the cache title to show?
  20. Regardless of all the discussion, logic, and reasoning in this thread, regardless of polls and petitions and pleadings, the bottom line is that it's HQ that will decide whether or not to do it. I don't know how much they consider the discussion in the forums when they make the decision.
  21. From the entry pics, there's a way to exit off the highway and come at this from the back side, so to speak. None of the cachers of the dozen or so photos I looked at had pulled onto the shoulder; their cars were on the other side of the guard rail.
  22. Maybe they don't have a 2-digit field, so instead of displaying a 10, they have a 0?

    I'm guessing banners like these on their "about" tab: https://www.geocaching.com/p/?guid=fe84c310-90f3-4216-9ca6-6a8f423e37c8&wid=f649a2c4-0204-44c0-8656-781a5c0c3c44&ds=2
  24. (1) Get permission from the land manager. (2) Don't nail things into trees. Attach them some other way that doesn't affect the tree. (3) Each tag will have to be at least 161 m (528 ft) from any other cache or physical stage of another cache. (They can be closer to other tags/stages for this same cache.)
