  1. Well there is one who is always giving and never asks for anything in return and that would be Geo.Error. If you see she places smile coins around the world and brings happiness to alot of caches.

    For no reason other them how great she is after a quick hello to my 7 year old she has sent her two of her own coins. Just because she can.

    Error always has a nice and warm word to say that would make anyones sad day look bright.

    I vote Geo.Error.

  2. Looking for a specal coin, can anyone tell me where to start looking for one?


    Would like to keep details of coin off these boards.


    Just need to know where to look.


    There are a lot of "special" coins, my friend! Hard to know where to look if you don't know what to look for! :rolleyes:


    You could always email the info of the coin to me or anyone else, maybe someone will know.



    Thanks will do so tonight, it is forsomeone whos comes here so hard to post.

  3. The zoom interface and the tabs to switch over to satellite or hybrid maps on the map results pages have suddenly gone missing; can anyone explain what's up? :laughing:
    It was larst night before I went to bed and now iit is broken here in Oz.
  4. All's good and thanks for the info, just have to contact the owner who hasn't been active since 2006.


    Will look at just maintaning the cache as it is in a great area that due to recent changes don't let any new cache placements. So once gone thats it.

  5. I believe that with a bit of fiddling - perhaps though google maps API I could plot where I have been the same way as one can see where a TB has been. I think this would be a cool new feature to have on your account home page - Same as a TB map like "View Map>>" but instead "View where I've been. You could overlay all found geocaches and toggle a route overlay (in order of find).


    I guess it's possible - perhaps a bit gimicky but I'd like it. Is there anything out there that can do this without too much hassle already?



    Get a personal TB that you keep hold of and drop it in and out of each cache you find. Even can be dropped into those that you DNF.

  6. I don't know of any other software company which does this. Prioritising resources to fix bugs is a complex job; bugs are typically written up in a system which is designed to make it easy for the programmers to keep track of them.


    Writing up the bugs in such a way that people reading the forums would understand them (and see something family-friendly :anibad: ), would be a pretty resource-hungry activity in its own right, and it would have to be done at least in part by the programmers themselves, thus making their time even more scarce.


    Personally, I'm amazed we even get release notes.



    Thanks sTeam for explaining more the posting a link to here.

  7. Not quite.


    1-Release Notes by OpinioNate


    Shows the current list of Bugs fixed and site upgrades.



    2-Geocaching Announcements

    Here you can read the latest announcements of changes to the Geocaching.com web site.

    Really only lists changes, bug fixes and release notes.



    It needs to be placed in the pinned seaction of Geocaching.com Web Site


    Where one could go if they find a bug and not need to read through 7 pages of topics to find out if there bug has been reported (as some topics cover several different problems). Pinned under say release notes and called say Known Bugs, with a release of a new list fortnightly.


    It would mean one would have somewhere to look if they come across a problem and see if Groundspeak where awhere of the problem and are working on it or if there problem is not listed then a new topic to report this problem could be started.

  8. This is a feature request for this this part of the forums.


    Geocaching.com Web site.



    At the top you have a pinned area for the mods.


    One more pinned subject would be where you (Groundspeak) could post current known problems, bugs, fixes etc.


    currently been worked on. Updated weekly/monthly to let us know.



    This may stop alot of double/triple questions. If we know that you know then atleast someone knows.



    Just a thought.




  9. Take this cache as an example.





    It has 3 different waypoints which are all part of the cache find. Trail Head, mid way and final location.



    Is there a way to see all three plotted on Google Maps without having to open each one then view?



    Additional Waypoints

    What I would like to see is a way to view all three waypoints on the same google page.



  10. The biggest problem here is caches that are missing.


    Have visited the site myself with another cacher and as I had found these caches before we can confirm that they are missing.


    All the owner has done is disabled these caches, somethimes the only note posted is . yes thats right a full stop no note on what may or maynot be done.


    So how long should these caches be left to come up?

    How long after a needs archiving BECAUSE ITS MISSING and been missing for quite a while before it gets replaced or arhived?


    Just in case these caches are within about 10 km radius of a main town where the cacher lives and works.


    Yes I have tried to contact them by email with a couple replacing/repairing and even arhiving those trouble caches.

    Thanks to those caches who took responsiblity with there caches.


    Now to get these missing caches to be replace or archived.
