  1. Yes, I didn't know this either. Interesting to learn that this nanosatellite is based on a standard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CubeSat
  2. The webpage https://www.wisaplywood.com/wisawoodsat/ and the page of the travel bug state: Our goal is to put the world’s first wooden satellite on Earth’s orbit by the end of 2021. We have to wait a little longer...
  3. Good work! If you want to make something more detachable you can make something like this: Iron wire folded into shape so that it can be slid over the top part of the fishing rod. The part between the 2 spirals makes it possible to fix it better. (so it doesn't spin or move) Some people also use Gear Tie...
  4. if I may be so bold to answer your question... You can search on the Dashboard -> Find Another Player: https://www.geocaching.com/find/default.aspx If I test this for the reviewer (Sapience Trek) I get the profile page: https://www.geocaching.com/p/?guid=377bf765-70d7-4220-aec5-79919b7ae261 I would send an e-mail from there... I hope this helps.
  5. Yes, I hope/expect this is the case. But nevertheless sometimes multiple changes don't allow to simply restore one of these changes without restoring everything... It would be interesting if we knew more about why these adjustments were made. But I don't think we can do much more than report (what you did well with clear info) 👍
  6. I Would think/hope they read the forum... For bugs the forum has "Home - Bug Reports and Feature Discussions - Website": https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/forum/139-website/ Maybe paste your findings in a new thread overthere?
  7. I can acces my watch list from the dashboard... You could try to go to the URL: https://www.geocaching.com/my/watchlist.aspx Hope this works for you...
  8. I had not noticed this, but you're right. In the past you could see the number of watchers and you could not add your own caches on your watch list. They have made some changes, maybe that is the reason why Goldenwattle was having problems...
  9. I Just tested this (Google Chrome) and it seems to work for me. When I click on watch it takes me to "Your Watchlist" from where I can see this newly added watch and previous created watches...
  10. I'm always short on favorite points, but I always try to have some available to hand out. I think favorite points are a personal indication for which caches I liked the most. If you look back at your list of favorite caches after a few years of caching it's like a trip down memory lane. they are an indication of which caches were the most fun to me at that time/place. The first of a certain type of hide might get a favorite point, so is it better than the 10th? No, but this "first" one was special to me. Same with handing out favorite points to CO's who are friends. Maybe it's their first hide making it special for you as a friend/finder... All these things are reasons why the system is personal. But on the other hand, it is also an indication that can be useful to others. On vacation I regularly choose which caches I want to search or even which locations I want to visit based on this system. However, the number alone does not always say everything, but in combination with good logs with foto's and the percentage of favorite points they sometimes make a great indication of interesting places to visit. Because of this, geocaching and in some ammount also this favorite point system is responsible for visiting certain places I would never have gone otherwise. The difference between CO's is remarkable, some spontaneously thank you for handing out a favorite point. Others ask why they didn't get one... As a CO I don't put out caches to get points but getting one is always nice of course.
  11. I don't think this would be a good idea. What if you first log several powertrail caches. But want to save your points for something Else... Also some people are premium but don't award favorite points...
  12. Max and 99 is correct. Look for "2.1. Enter solved coordinates for Mystery Caches" in the help center: https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=106&pgid=807 Part 2 is about the app...
  13. I'm also from Belgium. 😎 I'll put some of your puzzles on my to-solve list... I can confirm that soon after mysteries get released I often see strange behavior on the checkers. Someone who solves a series of 8 mysteries within 2 minutes with a green checker on all mysteries immediately, unlikely... But to stop making mysteries because of that? I always try to enjoy making them myself and i'm always curious about the first logs... For me solving/logging mysteries is first about solving the puzzle and then (mostly some time later) go out to find the cache. Thus these types provide twice the fun for the real fans of this type. In any case, judging by the number of favorite points on some of your mysteries, there are still fans out there...
  14. Amazing location for a cache! Great story about the creation of your puzzle cache. This is proof that every creative process can come about differently. I had a look at your puzzle and solved it, just for the fun because i'm not visiting Australia any time soon...
  15. vous pouvez vérifier cela via ce lien: https://www.geocaching.com/plan/lists/ignored
  16. I'm afraid the tracks,routes, waypoints,... are only accessible via USB. When you connect the unit to your PC, do you get something on the screen of the Oregon? (connection/power icon). Also have a look at https://www.gpsrchive.com/Oregon 6xx/index.htm and try to change the format of the serial interface... You could remove the batteries and try contact spray on the USB port and connectors ... Once "dry" again insert battery and test. No idea if it is safe, but if you can't do much with the unit otherwise it's worth a try ...
  17. Is this fixed? I'm not having the issue at the moment and I did a couple of hours ago...
  18. I don't realy know the Lezyne Mege C/XL or the Garmin 530, they both seem mostly bike systems. If you want a better combination device for bike/hike/geocache, i think the Oregon 700/750 is good idea. I use a 750 on the bike and while hiking. For on the bike you can buy a bike mount which is easy to replace from one bike to antother with straps. If you want to see your phone notifications on your GPS screen then I would definitely opt for a model with Garmin Connect (which the Oregon 7X0 series also contains). That way you can let your phone in your backpack and read messages/notifications on your GPS. Just keep in mind you still need your phone if you want to reply... The 750 comes with a rechargeable NiMH pack while the 700 requires your own batteries. But the battery pack of the 750 can also be replaced with regular batteries if necessary.
  19. Welke lengte van gear-tie gebruik je op de foto? Goed idee die gear-tie.
  20. After uploading them to the drafts you have to write your log and post them. On the site go to "Play - Drafts". There you should find al your drafts, these still need to be posted. Click them one by one, write some text for the owner/other geocachers about your experience and then hit post. Once your drafts list is empy you should see all af them on the map.
  21. Could it be you have not uploaded these to geocaching.com? After you mark them as found you have to upload them to geocaching.com and write a log for your founds for them to show up. For more information on how to upload drafts: https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=138&pgid=548
  22. Hi chubbeehubbee, If you create a geoache you just have to enter the GPS location as you mention. The UTM is just another coordinate notation/system and gets created indead. You don't need to worry about this... Good luck with placing your geocache!
  23. Hallo, Ik denk dat dit gewoon is om een waypoint als bezocht/voltooid aan te duiden. https://www.geocaching.com/blog/2017/03/8-useful-geocaching-app-features-you-may-not-even-know-you-have/
