  1. Where as the second link for me takes me to the Adopte a listing page also but for a different cache, not the same one as the first link takes me to. As said this is the second time I have seen this. It is not a worry for me but just thought they may be interested in it.


    Oh and have finaly got it listed on that other site.

  2. This has been posted here because the Satisfaction site will not let me. It tells me I am logged in but when I post this issue/problem it tells me I need to log in, which by the way when I try it tells me I already am.




    Adoption of cache link coming up wrong. This is the second time I have noticed this issue. When adopting out caches you recieve an adoption request email, open email and it tells you the cache that is up for adoption with its url link (which matches) a message from owner and then 'If you would like to ...... visit following url. But guess what the second url is different to the first one. See example below. This is one of the email I recieved that is all wrong. That second url takes me to the adopt a listing page but tells me the cache name is The only way is up GC1P2NT.


    Tablelands Cachers would like you to adopt their listing:

    BEEware (Multi-cache)


    Message from the owner:

    Event is over so time to hand these out.

    If you would like to accept this adoption request, visit the following URL:


    If you wish to decline the adoption request there is no need to respond.

  3. If you go to Your Pocket Queries you are able to to download a list of all caches you have done as a PQ. But this will not show it up on a map. There are some Stat gernotors that will give a map over view of you cache placements. Hope fully some one will point you in that direction. As this can be added to your Public Profile page.

  4. Lets look at Some mega events? I know a couple that charge a fee to enter.

    Oh and this may be the event in Question- Geocaching NSW 2010 AGM by Geocaching NSW (GC29JTT) and if one was to look at the Agenda -


    'The AGM will begin at 10.30 am sharp, with reports from the President, Treasurer and Membership Officer. Please note, only Geocaching NSW members may attend the AGM. Non-members are welcome to join the event at the conclusion of the AGM (around 11.30 am).'


    This reads to me that the AGM is seperate to the event which is open to all.

  5. Ok I do not wish to see some link to facebook on GC site, I pay a Premium Membership and do not wish to see this add. What next a link to some under ground site. Please remove it It has nothing to do with the game sport obsession that we play.


    Yes. Please remove it!


    Ok, but if we're going all tin-hat here about off-content IP tracking stuff, better remove all those interactive Google Maps too. Google can get your IP address.


    Remind me how Facebook is evil for tracking your IP and web usage but Google is not - even though Google has FAR more ability to build a personally identifiable identity profile than Zuckerberg will ever have.




    Ok no idea what you are talking about IP tracking or such, I just noted the I do not like it on there and do not see how it will help or can assist me with caching.


    I see a benefit with a Mapping program in this case been Google. But Remind me or educate me on how Facebook will help or improve my caching/ caching experiance?



    Again Please remove this Facebook link as it has nothing to do with the game sport obsession we play.

  6. Not shore if it has been removed but on any cache page the second lower/larger map on the cache page does not let you zoom in or out anymore.


    That map will be back, I had to switch to static map to get some time to work on javascript issues that had come up. A bigger and better map will be coming soon!





    Thanks all else looks good funny seeing an add for Lost and Found above Logs.

  7. Any one know where I can get help with VantagePoint?


    How does one delete all previous caches loaded?


    Wish to do this so I can reload and start using it.


    It was loaded quite awhile ago so now alot are found or archived.


    Please point us in the right direction even if it is t oanother forum.

  8. This is great, but it worries me too. Knowing my luck, Ill buy it now and 5 days later they will release a new touch screen model, with upgradable maps, an electronic compass and bold print for only $199.00



    Just wait till July or shortly there after. Hit Hit

  9. We found our first 20 or more caches with out a gps. Use google maps to help zoom in, if near a road street view also helps you pin point the location. Every so often we head out with out it and love the extra frill of the hunt with out it.

    I know of one cacher in Oz who has several hundred finds and still does not use a GPS.

    Made shore you look at Hint Size Difficutly and Terrian as all these will help you understand what you are looking for.
