  1. Well what do you know, works in busted up IE11 I'll use that, not willing to reset my Chrome. Could be now playing nice with an extension or something.
  2. The boxes all the way to the left were checked. Using up to date Chrome and tried on two different computers.. The box never pops up asking if I am sure. Popups are not blocked for the site..I will try Edge or IE when I get a chance
  3. I am having to go into each query to delete. Was trying to do a cleanup. I tried to delete quite a few, those two included .If the highlighted option is broken is it slated to be fixed if not it should be removed. Or maybe this should be moved to bugs. Mod, feel free if it's not known issue.
  4. Thanks! It's been great, not one complaint. It's a pretty populated area and flat to boot. Very few spots on Long Island where you don't have a connection.
  5. So far except for these locationless ones, every adventure lab I have done has been a tour of an area. Exactly like a Wherigo except there is a smiley for every location. AND you have to have a smartphone. Which kind of sucks for people who don't have unlimited data plans, or are traveling and don't have roaming data. When I got mine everyone was surprised I didn't do a tour of my neighborhood. Uh, well that was already done with a Wherigo, and sorry it was archived before you starting playing but not doing it again. I for one welcome something out of the ordinary. The way that the adventures are setup at this time, they do not need approval at all unless there is a physical container. Oh sure the guidelines say make sure you have permission but unless someone complains to the PTB..... Anyway if you don't like them then don't do them. Don't condemn people because they are not as pure as the driven snow in regards to how the game should be played.
  6. Interesting, I did not look at his profile or his adventure so not sure if he was a finalist or if it has videos. But that makes sense for them to give them a special consideration.
  7. People who want to cheat are going to find a way to cheat no matter what restrictions are placed. I have already heard about people logging adventure labs from across the world (not these 3 specifically) See this thread I know some otherwise perfectly nice people who cheat on their stats. And justify it if you call them out on it and try to get you to take part. I decline. I really enjoyed the professor lab. But....kind of agree it isn't really in the spirit of location based games. What I don't understand is how the howdy guy was given 10 locations. I would have loved another 5 locations for mine. I thought they were meant for event organizers.
  8. Feedback from the locals, had I not put out a bonus cache they would not have known there was a new adventure cache. Other than that, so far they seem to like it.
  9. When building the locations and I click on the map location button nothing happens. However that did not hinder the creation or the playing of it. Just reporting it. I didn't see anywhere else to give feedback, maybe that should be part of the builder.
  10. I used it too. Not all the time but for proximity placing. Sorry they think it's low usage. <shaking head>
  11. I think it's a great idea, if it makes you happy to do it. I understand you want feedback and I am sorry that so many people feel it necessary to go off topic or be negative or rude but that is the status quo around here. Anyway, i registered though I am not sure what I get for that. It did not tell me "if you register you will be in the running for this brand new car! Carol Merrill, show us what else you can win" J/K it would be nice if it said what the benefit of registering is. Might want to figure out how to automatically have archived and disabled caches show, such as this one which has been archived. https://coord.info/GCAE
  12. So far this gets my vote for the least fun summer challenge that has been created.
  13. To add to what Rock Chalk said above, a couple specific answers that would be potentially helpful: How did you navigate to the map? Directly? From the search page map preview? From a PQ map preview? Which map layer are you using? Google Maps? One of the Leaflet layers? (If so, which?) Does the bug only occur after certain actions on the map (e.g. zooming, panning)? Or are you unable to open caches as soon as you open the map? Which browser version and OS version are you using? 1:View larger map from cache page 2:Google maps 3:As soon as I open larger map I do not get anything but a hand. Zooming out doesn't help. 4:Chrome up to date version Version 52.0.2743.116 m Windows 10 Pro Version 1511 IE11 does not work either on my machine.
  14. Not working for me either, very very annoying!
  15. Dislike and so do many on our local FB page. Who approves this stuff?
  16. I got that message too by a "fake" cacher named "Gilmore9527". I'm already a premium member so I know it's a hacker website. On another note, I get emails everytime someone messages me through the message center. This time, I didn't. Could this be related? I only knew about this messages since I got a notification in my message box when I logged into geocaching. Or have an option to only allow email no message center
  17. Very annoying for a "feature" I would like to be able to turn off to have to deal with this
  18. I too would like to opt out of the message center option. Email is good enough for me, thanks!
  19. Adding my two cents with regards to the message center. I understand the need to keep up with the times but let us opt out please.
  20. SO someone sends me a message and I get an email. So why not just send the email and I can respond to it. DIslike.
  21. Glad to hear Jayme is still employed, I was concerned when Moun10bike seemed to have taken over the insights forum. Leave the old email method alone! Like some have said why have to log onto site to send answers. This messaging thing should be a whole separate entity from that. ALSO, why only one person can be sent a message, would like the ability to send to multiples. Like hey tom dick and harry, check out the log on this cache we couldn't find last week. What do you guys think?? AND, a setting to turn it off it one doesn't want it at all. Not everyone does apparently. I too liked the greasemonkey+Firefox mail to but I stopped using Firefox. I would have like that to be implemented to send email to user that way that worked.
  22. The API is broken as well. Lovely for us on a Saturday morning on the east coast, we have to wait till they wake up wayyyyyyyyyyy over there ETA tried again and it's working now
  23. I think that the point has been made that we all have a horse in this race, because forced archiving could happen anywhere. So it is even better when those who don't directly have a horse in the race stand up and say, "Hey, this is heavy-handed. Big-wigs wearing two hats are throwing their weight around, forcing out existing caches to make way for caches of their own choosing. You or I could be next." Agree or disagree, but it's crucial to have a robust debate about these policy issues. The point of my comment was not to say that this is something that affects all of us. It was directed specifically at the poster who I quoted who I felt was out of line with his rants. But as usual in these forums, some of the posters here who seem to have little else to do blew it way out of proportion. Which is why many people stay away from these discussion forums. There, have at it. You are all SO easy to bait
  24. Yeah good idea. This was on my menu today. Some of these prolific posters need to grab their gps and get AWAY from their computer.
  25. Again, with the minimizing? While I grant you this trouncing of other cachers is not a war, I think it is certainly more than a squabble. I would rate this as an insulting violation of a small handful of cachers. This must not be allowed to stand. Whatever steps the members need to take to get rid of those who allowed this abomination to occur should be welcome. . People make mistakes, this isn't the US government here, these are our friends and caching companions. CR, this is not your community nor your friends. Get over yourself, you are acting like you have a horse in this race.
