  1. Współrzędne się nie zmieniły - co najwyżej nałożenie mapy. Jeśli zostały pobrane w odpowiednim miejscu, to znalezienie nie powinno być problemem, jak ktoś się "słucha GPSa"
  2. Thank you, the first one seems to be what I need
  3. That is a restored, original, water pump used by steam locomotives. I find them an interesting piece of history and I've run into some already. Can there be any category fitting these? Or is it a category gap? Thanks
  4. For some reason, the "Last Found" column is working as "Found On" when looking at caches found by a specific user.
  5. I just realized there is one more thing that I'd like to be implemented in the new version. Make drafts editable So I can go into a draft, start writing my log, but then cancel and save the draft. Just like I would do in the official geocaching app. That would be a great feature. Currently I'm using OneNote for writing up my log (part by part), before pasting into the drafts and submitting.
  6. The old drafts page: takes up much less space, is clear - dnf / found icon, shows me all my drafts instantly doesn't show my the beginning of the text of the draft (that's a small flaw) The new page on the other hand: Takes up much more space - white, blank space. Maybe it makes sense for tablet users, but for regular PC use? Is not clear about the type of logs - the text is barely visible. Counting all your dnf's or finds if you want specific numbers is harder. "New drafts utilizes lazy load so this is expected behavior. It will load more and more drafts as you scroll down the page. " No, no no! I so don't like that. Scrolling makes counting your drafts, finds, or finds from specific trips much harder and longer. Why would we make our lives harder? Or am I the only one who feels that way? My ideas: 1. Make possible to load all drafts instantly, like the old page does. Maybe it can be a function to turn on, so by default people could be using the lazy load? 2. Make possible to collapse the view, so the height of each drafts is smaller. I think in a way this idea is connected to the previous one. 3. Maybe introduce some kind of summary, like the mentioned, nice, GClh extension was doing in the old view! I so understand how hard it has to be to work on this old code of the website, but functionality should always be more important than appearance. There is room for improvement. Thank you for reading this.
  7. Today on my walk I've run into such a nice piece that reminded me of this category idea.
  8. Zależy co masz na myśli mówiąc "ok". Nie ma obowiązku zamieszczania opisu skrzynki, choć jest on zalecany, również przez recenzentów. Regulamin jednak do tego nie zmusza, co za tym idzie, taka skrzynka ma prawo istnieć. Może Ci się nie podobać, możemy podyskutować o tym dokąd zmierza geocaching i jak kiepską jakością się to cechuje, ale zasad to nie łamie. Więc wbrew Twojej prośbie mówię "wszystko jest ok" na płaszczyźnie regulaminu. A czy chcemy by tak wyglądały opisy? Chyba wszyscy nie chcemy.
  9. There we are! Congrats to everyone who kept this hobby alive!
  10. First of all, I would like to apologize for not speaking up in this thread, but my time that I could devote to Waymarking was significantly limited. I don't feel obligated to explain this, but I think it's good to clarify. I haven't forgotten about the idea and have come to some conclusions. The initial vision for this category is not feasible, although I liked it very much. I can see how much of a problem it would be to accept or reject all signs, signs, or art installations with LOVE written on them, so that nothing conflicts with the other categories. The motive of "find expressed love" is nice, but this may lead to many, many waymarks being posted about every possible object. The best direction seems to be the one proposed by Torgut, i.e. something like tourist art installations referring to a given place, region. And although many of them contain the word LOVE or heart, it is not always like that. So the category should not associate objects strictly with the context of love, but more the ones who are made for tourist or promotion of a certain region. If anyone thinks they have a good idea of how to define this category, please do. I unfortunately don't currently have one, so I won't undertake it. However, I will gladly "give the idea away" to those interested.
  11. I noticed today, that creating a draft for locationless cache (e.g. GC8NEAT) results with creating this draft at the end, like it's not taking order or time into consideration. So even though, I created 10 more drafts later that day, the locationless is still at the last spot on the list. Anyone else noticed that? I guess it may be a bug.
  12. Could someone clarify for me, pretty please, what happened to the cache logging page? Nearly nothing changed, but the possibility to opt-out disappeared. Why can't I find any information of disabling the old logging page? Thanks for help
  13. Jeśli nie jest włączona wymuszona kolejność to nie. Jedynym miejscem gdzie autor mógł wspomnieć o zalecanej kolejności, to opis.
  14. I've run into this waymark WM14BWC which seems to be a self-advertisement. This waymark doesn't even have a proper photo of the place. But this didn't bother the leader, who approved it. My question is, can something be done about it, because it seems to me that it should?
  15. I honestly like the idea, but there will be a ton of exclusions. First that came into my mind: Man-made Animal Bridges and Crossings Pedestrian Suspension Bridges + all other bridges of course. A nice list of not allowed structures will be needed. I think this part is going to be hard. Defining what is too common or uninteresting is very subjective.
  16. Of course there is a need to draw the line. So trying answering your questions I would say, in my opinion, as long as the word love or heart symbol is the only or the main concept of the object it should fit (the word love or the equivalent in the native language of the region). Example of an acceptable Welcome Sign: Source: https://images.app.goo.gl/wMiLAStshxWQ5yov5 The sign / inscription can also be artistic and should be accepted, as long as the love is the core of it. These creations are artistic but LOVE is still the main concept: Source: https://images.app.goo.gl/8oJTC3Vx2M49FbXU6, https://images.app.goo.gl/ms12PURiL5LEF5RS7 The same goes with sculptures. If the sculpture is only a part of the sign / inscription, it would be okay I guess. These days the sculptures can be so different and unusual, that I would say: post it there where it fits the most. Edge cases will be voted. Some more examples: - The "Love" sculptures (#1 and #2) linked by Alfouine would also be accepted, for the same reasons as above. - If there is a sculpture of a girl holding a book, and the book has "I love *something*" written on it, this won't be accepted, because the love is not the main creation of the sculpture. - I also saw creations where there is a town name and one letter is switched to be a heart (I could provide an example later), or the heart is the point of the " i " letter. Like: Lond♥n, instead of London - acceptable. If you have some cases you want to discuss, please post them. As I said before, I think that the concept of the SPAS category is different than of this conceptual category, but I'm not an officer there. I think all the examples I listed are already providing some view, and most of them wouldn't fit, or at least shouldn't in my opinion. Your example of # I Love NICE is suitable to this potential category. On the other hand this waymark got accepted two days ago in SPAS, when in my opinion it's not exactly right there. I think it got accepted as there is currently no other category for something similar (and even if we create this one, it still will only be for love related stuff) - from 2012 SPAS category is accepting text art pieces. Should we allow or disallow cross-Waymarking in the future? As example #3 from Alfouine clearly fits into both categories: https://www.Waymarking.com/waymarks/wm11Z3Q_LOVEwork_at_Virginia_Welcome_Center_Bristol_Virginia_USA I created a group https://www.Waymarking.com/groups/details.aspx?f=1&guid=0c9f0b07-094d-4b31-8c94-4f750bf4c01c. If someone feels he would like to be an officer, or want to help out with the requirements, please let me know. Over time, we will try to prepare a category description. If you have more examples that can be used as examples or to discuss edge cases, I would be glad to see them. I personally will be able to provide two examples from my region, one of this one: Source: https://images.app.goo.gl/MiYTZwSuT3MkjTmt9 Greetings
  17. You are right about that there should be a setting for that, but if you need the 528ft / 161m "circles", you can use 3rd party apps like Cachly on iOS or GCDroid on Android (and i guess Geooh GO also has this). The caches are remaining in the desired positions there.
  18. Wystarczy, że podmienisz współrzędne konkretnej skrzynki w tym miejscu: Po kliknięciu ołówka wyświetli Ci się okno do podmiany: Pod podmianie skrzynka będzie wyświetlała się w nowym miejscu z ikoną "puzzla" widoczną na screenie nr 2
  19. Good point, but I have to say the examples you've provided, are a little different from what I think the love category's main aim may be. You are right that there are love signs which are already in a different category. <cut out part> Examples #1 and #2 are art, so that obviously works there more than in the love category (edit: don't get me wrong, they would be fine here too, but they are an unique example). It's a very known sculpture: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_(sculpture) I was even able to find a remade Polish version of it Plaque from #2 confirmes: Example #3 fits easily into SPAS, as it's clearly cut out of metal and that's what the category is mainly aiming at. It would also nicely work in this potential category. Cross-Waymarking could be prohibited or allowed, it depends. Example #4 Nice entry sign, artistic in a way I think the Silhouette Public Art Sculptures category has a different aim, than the idea I brought up. From my examples, the third one would be unacceptable, as it's made out of hedges. Also not all "I love something" or "love" signs would be as artistic to fit (to fit, not to be accepted) into the mentioned SPAS category. There are many easy ones, where the author is unknown, and it was made only to please the eye. But aside of the above, I think that the concept of "I ❤️ something" (or anything with a heart, or love word) is strong, and it's unique in a way. You surely know logos like this ( btw. what a potential to have a similar, cool category icon!) : Source: https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Love_New_York Of course you may disagree that it needs a separate category, but maybe it's not a bad idea to make a different section for this kind of stuff. If more people has a different perspective from mine, Keith and someone else who PM'ed me about this, just let me know. It's better to know now than after a denied Peer review I did some editing in this post, I've expressed myself differently than I wanted
  20. In the last two days I've run into this at least five times. Very annoying.
  21. I've had the opportunity to come across a few I LOVE signs recently. They seem to be more and more popular. They are placed in courtyards, squares, or at the entrances to cities, and relate to a particular region, attraction, city, or neighborhood. They are created as a permanent construction of hedges, metal connectors and whatever the creator had in mind. They can be treated as a tourist attraction, like this sign from Uzbekistan: source: https://images.app.goo.gl/WMfUtZcdi4urbrvb6 source:https://images.app.goo.gl/KKCCN9EEJnTL9A3CA Some of them are decorated for the period of christmas time: source: https://gazetazoliborza.pl/2019/12/06/na-zoliborzu-juz-czuc-swieta-choinka-rozswietlona/ The only problem may be determining the permanence of such signs. All the ones I've seen in my area are made to be permanent, sometimes decorated as in the example above for a limited time. I thought this might be a good category. The question is, do you think this is a good idea? Would you find that interesting? More examples: https://goo.gl/maps/JrvDrsmt8pyVvU5m9
  22. Could someone help me out. Where can I fit Tram cars? The closest I can get is "Static Train Cars" or "Permanent Car Displays", but neither of those seems to fit trams exactly. Is this a category gap? Examples: 1) Serves currently as a tourist shop, but it is also a memorial that 100 years ago there were trams in this city (there is a plaque not far away) 2) Permanent display of a small, private collection of tram cars. Really cool by the way.
  23. Some time passed, I've done some thinking, and I faced an issue. There are places, with permanent structures designed for some specific games like Table Tennis, see below. I Think there is no reason not to accept such places. Of course when there are multiple tables at the same location, one waymark should be added only. But what about tables designed to play chess which are next to it? These are tables with chessboards on them. It's also a game, chess is considered to be a sport, but should it be part of this category, what do you think? I personally wouldn't accept chess tables, as they are too common in some places - I mean like 5 or 6 in one location, practically never used to play chess, as this is a game mostly played inside (I think?). But I could say the same about table tennis. I don't really know what to think, so some feedback would be appreciated. Also, if anyone feels like adding something to the bigger post I made above (April 12), I'm all ears. Thanks
  24. I feel that you are trying to argument something, which would deny the current state. I understand the easy association: multi-cache - > multiple stages - > can't have a checker (still could, but I understand some people may be confused), but we could easily do the same with mysteries. Mystery Caches have checkers - fact. There are no-stage, one-stage, multi-stage mysteries - fact. Other cache types don't have checkers - fact. There are no-stage, one-stage, multi-stage letterboxes - fact. Do you see what I mean? I don't think it makes much sense to find a logic in here. There is some reasoning for sure, which I don't know, and that is what I would love to hear from the HQ, or someone who has a different idea maybe? Edit: I don't understand, I just checked and they don't? Am I not seeing something?
  25. Exactly. As said, if the checker would be available, nobody forces the owner to use it. A bad multi can be bad with or without the checker, the checker may help. Exactly like with a Mystery Cache which is done in-field (yeah, they are a thing too!). Overall we have 3 other cache types that may require a checker: Multi-Cache, Wherigo, Letterbox. Let's say the first two are not a big deal. Wherigo is giving you the final zone (sometimes not the coordinates, but ok), and nobody wants a checker in a multi-cache (that is your wish ). But what about letterboxes? In the beginning they were supposed to involve a small riddle, lead you a path or something like this, but let's be honest times have changed. I see now multiple letterboxes which are done exactly like a Mystery Cache, but there can't be a HQ checker. But why really? Because I see here the exact same case as with Mystery Caches.
