  1. It's not like I want to start stalking my local reviewer. In fact, our local reviewers are very accessible. It would be neat, interesting, and sometimes helpful if there was a list of the reviewers. A map with areas covered would be even better. If this already exists, please tell me where.
  2. Does this help? I have a copy of this map as originals are no longer printed.
  3. I have read, on another forum, that all events are now being approved by Groundspeak Lackeys. AND, once they are submitted, they may not be edited? Is there anything official on this?
  4. The site is very slow now and was last night too. Some pages eventually pop up, but most the time I get the Signal error page. Forums seem to work OK though.
  5. I could do with less PQs per day, but raise the cache limit to 1000. That is the Garmin limit isn't it? I could do with 10 PQs per week as a limit.
  6. I see how it could be useful and I know how it bothers me. So, a option to turn it off and on would be great.
  7. I saw the other thread. The html was the culprit. As soon as I found out I logged my findings on that thread. Thanks for the help!
  8. I just posted this problem too. Someone wrote that it might be the html code (assuming I was using it, and I was). I typed in the name of the trackable and left off the mission and description blank. It went through each time after that. Then I went back to enter the mission and description with html. It worked. For those trackables with the missing launch info, just reactivate the coin or TB. It will take you back through the same screens. I hope this helps.
  9. I thought I'd try a travel bug. The first one I did worked, but the rest have resulted the same as the geocoins.
  10. This is the second post for this thread. The first didn't finish the post and is missing. I am trying to activate some geocoins. I can activate it, enter info for it, but when clicking the button "Edit Trackable Item's Detail" I am taken to a page with a giant Geocaching.com logo, Signal looking at a paper, and a message stating: "Sorry! We encountered an error when requesting that page!" I have tried two different coins. I tried using the latest version of Firefox,, on a Vista laptop. I also tried on an iMac running OSX 10.5 with Safari, version 3.0.4. The same thing happens each time. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. GSAK may be my best bet. I am trying to find this information so I can create bookmarks for the oldest cache in each Michigan county. It's a fun thing to do, but not too important. Keep the ideas coming!
  12. From Comcast: We are sorry to hear of the difficulties you have been experiencing. After reviewing your email, it appears as though there might be an issue with blocked email. To ensure correct handling of this issue, the mail administrator for the sending domain will need to visit the following address and submit a "Blocked Provider Request Form": http://www.comcastsupport.com/rbl Customer Security Assurance cannot address blacklist issues from individual customers. When submitting the form, suggest the mail administrator include a copy of the email header, as well as the mail server names. The sender will want to review the error message provided with the bounce back message from Comcast to help identify the blocked IP address, which will be located in an error code starting with "550." Have the mail administrator include each IP address currently blocked so we can fully investigate the issue. You can learn more about how to identify a blocked IP by visiting the following page: http://www.comcast.net/help/faq/index.jsp?...ail_Policy18667 Also, the following links will provide additional information helpful to resolving issues when a blocked IP sends email to the Comcast.net domain: BL001 http://www.comcast.net/help/faq/index.jsp?...ail_Policy18625 BL002 http://www.comcast.net/help/faq/index.jsp?...ail_Policy18626 BL003 http://www.comcast.net/help/faq/index.jsp?...ail_Policy18627 BL004 http://www.comcast.net/help/faq/index.jsp?...ail_Policy18628 Please note that Comcast is not blocking individual senders, but only mail servers that have sent high volumes of spam to the Comcast.net domain. For answers to frequently asked questions and updates on new features, please visit www.comcast.net and select Help. Remember that Comcast will never ask for your password or billing information via e-mail. Thank you for choosing Comcast. Sincerely, Richard B Comcast Customer Care Specialist
  13. Comcast does this a lot. Send them e-mails to their support.
  14. Does anyone know how to find geocaches by county? ItsNotAboutTheNumbers can discern caches by county. Is there a way to search for caches by county?
  15. I too am not receiving my PQs even though they have been generated. I also have Comcast.
  16. Read this Wikipedia link about MobiPocket. It has some interesting comments about the last few weeks at MobiPocket. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobipocket It's also a French company. Isn't or wasn't Magellan a French company or owned by a French company? Magellan has a reputation for awful customer service. Maybe that explains part of the problem.
  17. This has to have come up before, but I didn't see it. Why does a cacher need to have the travel bug or geocoin numeric or alphanumeric code to post a note?
  18. What about Adobe Acrobat eBooks? PDFs would be more universal.
  19. What is the difference between the software that bit the dust and MobiPocket Creator Publisher Edition?
  20. I just notice the MobiPocket missing and I am really bummed. PDFs could be an option for me. -SLT
  21. This could be some sort of new category or discoverable item. A travel bug bumper sticker complete with tracking number. Just a thought.
  22. I found three of these in Parma, Michigan. One was not bolted closed so I could see inside. All three were marked with witness posts indicating they were survey markers. The cover indicated they were monitoring wells. Are they are form of survey marker? (I'm trying to upload a picture.) (Is there a way beside linking it?)
  23. I have a few coins I like to keep and just show at events or cachers I meet, allowing them to discover the coins. They are listed in My Inventory. I would like to be able to separate those coins from the coins and TBs I move. A second inventory like My Collection would be a nice feature. I've seen cachers with larger collections keep them inventoried in old events because it just overwhelms the My Inventory.
  24. I'd like to see an option that would allow a cache creator to link his/her caches that are part of a series. Sometimes a cache series is obvious by name and sometimes not. This option should allow a cacher to click a link to see all the caches in the series. I know this can be done by a cacher with bookmarks. It would be nice if the cache creator could do it without necessarily creating a bookmark list.
  25. This topic must have been covered before.... The PQ feature is great and I set them based on where I want to go caching. I create them to encompass the widest area I can but still stay under 200 caches in the list. Two-hundred is the magic number for eXplorists. (This is not a Magellan vs. Garmin debate.) Each file on a Magellan eXplorist is limited to 200 POIs. While 40 might be more than some people need, I need more. Sometimes an area is so saturated that my PQs search area is limited to five miles. I'm reaching the 40 PQ limit and expect to go caching all over this summer. I really don't want to delete any of my PQs.
