  1. I Think it's a bug indeed. I have one PMO cache that's archived with the same behavior and some other caches, all seem to have "0% Favorites/Premium logs" on the list and "<1% Favorites/Premium Logs" on the cache page.

  3. If you visit your cache page in the right corner you wil see: Click on Edit. After that scroll down to Geocache details/BACKGROUND IMAGE (OPTIONAL). There you can delete the existing background and add a new one.
  4. lee737 is correct, for more info: https://www.geocaching.com/blog/2022/01/new-souvenir-for-2-22-22-deuces-wild/
  5. This way the CO can intervene before the NA log, Seems like a good solution. But how much time should there be between the NM and NA? Only disadvantage seems that If a cache only gets found once or twice every year it will remain on NM for a long time. Sometimes cachers solve puzzles and don't log them until months (or years) later... This gives the CO and the potential finders an opportunity to take action.
  6. Klopt. Is inderdaad op zijn minst niet echt elegant te noemen. Ik heb momenteel zelf geen andere betrouwbare oplossing gevonden. Voordeel is wel dat het wissen van de oude GPX bestanden en het opnieuw opzetten van nieuwe voor grote lijsten wel een pak sneller werkt dan via live download. Volgens mij komt de teller maar terug op 0 als je een volledige reset gaat uitvoeren. Anders blijft die staan. Dit is een teller voor dit toestel en er komen enkel aantallen bij als je die gaat gevonden zetten via dit toestel. Als je dus 2 toestellen gaat gebruiken zal je aantal niet altijd overal kloppen. Niet dat dit zo erg is maar het is inderdaad een gemiste kans. Ik heb zelf geen Montana toestel, ik zou aanraden om eventueel even te kijken of je iets kan vinden op onderstaande site: https://www.gpsrchive.com/Oregon 7x0/index.htm https://www.gpsrchive.com/Montana 7x0/index.htm Maar ik vrees dat de uitwerking van Geocaching Live grotendeels hetzelfde zal zijn.
  7. Dag Wolfke2070, Volgens mij komt dit omdat de optie inderdaad download maar nadien maar beperkt gaat updates uitvoeren. Je kan via de instellingen onder de optie geocaching "Remove Live Data" kiezen om alle gedownloade info te verwijderen. Op het toestel zelf kan je bijkomend via USB ook de gpx bestanden (eventueel manueel aangemaakt) wissen. Daarna zou je toestel leeg moeten zijn wat geocaches betreft. Via de Pocket Queries op geocaching.com kan je onderaan de lijst de optie My Finds toevoegen aan de queue: Nu en dan moet ik dit uitvoeren wil ik inderdaad iets of wat correcte data op de GPS staan hebben. Goed toestel maar de integratie van de Live functionaliteit is niet echt top. Ik gebruik die enkel als ik ergens onverwacht toch via de GPS wil een cache zoeken. Voor de rest draai ik queries, dit werkt vlugger en vooraf gooi ik alle voorgaande gpx bestanden weg. Je Teller kan je ook ergens aanpassen, weet ik echter niet meer vanbuiten waar. Indien nodig zoek ik het wel even op. Het is inderdaad eigenaardig dat dit niet in 2 richtingen werkt, als je een cache gaat zoeken zonder je device krijgt die geen update van je teller binnen...
  8. It Depends on the puzzle, if it is easy to solve and already contains a hint on the listing you can repeate the hint or ask what they have already tried to solve the puzzle. I personal don't mind helping out on my puzzles but they have to make some effort in searching also. Maybe they've never solved a puzzle, or none of this type... Feedback is also sometimes useful to provide a hint for common mistakes or in the checker to give a nudge in the right direction.
  9. I looked around and can't find any new launch date or update other than first half 2022 as already mentioned by you. We Will have to wait... Happy new year by the way.
  10. Sometimes there isn't much in the log but as a CO I receive a message/mail with an extra thank you. This is also nice and useful for puzzles because then they can speak freely without spoilers. A short log just remains a short log, it doesn't say anything about whether or not the person solved the puzzle or not. I agree, that awesome/nice logs people leave are a reason to continue to maintain and create new ones. Group of people helping each other out to solve a puzzle is always better than passing coordinates.
  11. Same problem in Chrome (Versie 96.0.4664.93). Hit F5 or the refresh button in the browser solves the issue and loads the data, but initialy it's empty.
  12. Yes, I didn't know this either. Interesting to learn that this nanosatellite is based on a standard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CubeSat
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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.
  16. 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) 👍
  17. 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?
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
  21. 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.
  22. 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...
  23. 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...
  24. 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...
  25. 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...
