  1. No idea what that means or how I would access one over the other. I just go to Waymarking.com for everything I do. Anyways, things seem back to normal for me as I have had no new issues. Thanks for looking into the missing waymark. I now know just to start from scratch.
  2. I received points for the new promotion but no souvenir has appeared either on the app or website. Update: interesting that the hedge souvenir does not show up in my list of souvenirs in the app or website, but when I click on the promotion from the app banner, it shows the souvenir colored indicating I have earned it. So that's partly good news.
  3. I think it's frustrating to have to manually change every single visit date after I log a visit.
  4. Maybe? https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/371577-release-notes-website-user-privacy-controls-march-23-2022/
  5. Good point about the attribute. I hadn't thought of that. There were a few already established geocaches incorporated into a geotour that I completed about a year and a half ago. Popular caches, which I'm sure is why they were Incorporated into the geotour. Now I'm wondering if the CO was aware this would happen. Maybe they were.
  6. I have a question. As mentioned in another thread, when an official paid Geotour ends, the caches are typically archived. But.... is there any kind of notice or accommodation to someone who owned the geocache before the Geotour went official, and allowed their cache to be part of the GeoTour? Do they get any chance to keep the cache? Any priority if they want to keep it (resubmit again under their own name)? Can those geocaches be adopted out, with the official geotour attribute removed? Just wondering what usually happens in this scenario.
  7. So you just want to know how to navigate on the app to the archived geocache to retrieve the trackable? I would get the coordinates from the website and add them as a waypoint to a geocache in the app. That's how I would do it, if I didn't remember how to get there.
  8. Is the travel bug actually still there? You can go to the website and access the cache.
  9. We now have the ability to filter our own Adventure Labs out of the map.
  10. I thought there was a better thread to post this but I cannot locate it. We can now hide from the map the ALs we created!
  11. Finally, Signal sees a light in the distance of the cave. He marches forward, away from the troll who is distracted by the jewel he found. The light in the distance and a sweet smell of flowers lead him out of the cave and into an elaborate hedge maze. Will Signal be able to navigate through the maze and continue on his quest? Geocachers have until October 3 at noon UTC to escape the cave before we find our way through the hedge maze. Throughout the hedge maze are friendly goats grazing through the labyrinth and creating shortcuts in the maze. If Signal can find a few of these goats, he’ll have an easier time finding his way out. These friendly goats, like the one in the image below, are the special bonus item for the labyrinth in the hedge maze. Every time you log a geocache, you will have a chance of finding one. If you go geocaching with a group of people, there’s a chance that one member of the group might find an item at a cache, but others don’t. These items award bonus leaderboard points that add on to the points you earn for logging the geocache. If you log your finds in the app and you find a goat, there will be a banner message to let you know you found one. On the website, there is a counter for these special bonus items that you can see on the page for Signal’s Labyrinth. The counter displays the item and shows how many you have found. You must collect 50 points to earn the first souvenir for the labyrinth in the hedge maze and 500 points to earn the second souvenir and get Signal out of the labyrinth. Each labyrinth in Signal’s Labyrinth has different point values for finding geocaches, Adventures, and bonus items. Mystery Caches are worth more points for this round on account of the puzzle solving skills required to navigate through the elaborate hedge maze. Found an Adventure Lab Cache (Adventure Location) 10 Found a Mystery Cache 35 Found a Multi-Cache 30 Found an EarthCache 30 Attended an Event 20 Found a cache with 10+ Favorite points 20 Found a Signal’s Labyrinth item 50 Found it* 15 *Log a Found it on any other cache type The maximum number of points you can earn for any cache log is 85 points.
  12. I noticed something new on heaven's above as I was planning an upcoming partnership: BlueWalker 3. I might watch for that.
  13. Are you using the app or website? You can filter for geocache types, which includes letterbox hybrids.
  14. Anyone else going to watch the coverage of DART colliding into Dimorphos? So exciting! Update: That was AMAZING!!! Travelling 471 million miles to get there, the autonomous navigation, and the photos showing the boulders on the asteroid and even the shadows.... just incredible!
  15. On the app, under "More", you can click on experimental features and toggle on the search for caches with trackables listed in their inventory. No guarantees they will actually be in the geocache though.
  16. If only there were a way to add a designated waypoint for parking, or trailhead, etc.
  17. I wasn't sure what thread to post this in, but somehow even after there has been a review made, hours later the rating is still not showing in the quick view, which means others will think no one has completed it yet. I really wish the quick view just showed how many people have completed it regardless if they have rated it or reviewed it.
  18. Mine are black on white for both. Just an observation but that looks like a notification for someone who found a cache not for someone contacting you.
  19. If I understand correctly you're asking if there's like a special icon to indicate a geocache is on a list you have created? There is not. However I am often in areas with no service and use offline lists to geocache.
  20. I assume you have all these checked? And your phone is not on silent when it happens?
  21. It doesn't get added to your total until someone has completed them, and then even after that... well, see this thread. https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/370489-number-of-total-caches-owned-on-profile-shows-wrong-number/
