  1. Is there a link or bookmark list someplace for "best" caches in Southern California? I tried the link I found for the So Cal Geocachers but it was a dead one. I won't be anyplace specific, but plan to roam around while attending a wedding in Newport Beach. Any links would be appreciated. Thank you.

     

    Check out the 12 bookmark lists found on this cache page...

    Thank you

  3. I don't require faces on my Earthcache just a photo with a specific formation in the background. I don't care if it is a hand with a GPS, but I want something in the photo with the item in the background. It can be your image or a GPS.

     

    I usually cache alone, and the majority of the Earthcaches I have done have been ALONE... I have started to carry a Pink plastic dolphin with me, so when I need a photo I put the PinkDolphin into the photo so far it has been fine. Honestly if someone absolutely required my photo I just would not do their Earthcache. If I don't have my plastic dolphin with me it is a hand and a GPS and the required image in the background.

     

    Hey! I like this! Peak baggers frequently bring along an avatar to photograph to show that they were there. Finley Dolphin has been photographed at many 4000' peaks in the northeast. I think that Finley should start making appearances at EarthCaches!

     

    The best part is since it is a Pink Dolphin how can anyone claim PinkDolphin is not in the photo...LOL (check out my gallery at GC.com and you will see some of the places PinkDolphin has been photographed).

  5. I received 2 recent longs on my Earthcache in Arizona and neither sent an email with the answers to the questions. I have sent 2 emails to each logger requesting the answers and have received no response to either. Only one posted no photo, the other posted a photo of the correct formation but no GPSr in the photo (I don't require they actually be in the photo I just ask for the GPSr). How many any emails is fair to send to request the information before I delete the log? In the second email I pointed out the guidelines for Earthcaches and the logging requirements.

    The first one that you mentioned should be deleted without hesitation. I've deleted similar posts on mine, where they don't even try. The other folks look like they simply forgot to include the GPSr, and going 2,000 miles just to take another pic seems a bit much. I would let them slide. Maybe put the pic requirements in bold for the next time, but I wouldn't delete these guys.

     

    I am not terribly strict with the photo, (as they did have the correct image in the background) but neither answered the questions. I will give it a few more days and send one more request. One of them I think just logged it, but given they were a new cacher with only 12 finds, I want to try to let them at least have a chance to try to answer the questions, and have given them the benefit of the doubt, but if they don't respond to a third request I probably will delete them.

  7. It's getting even stranger ...

     

    Last Saturday (8/30) I was mashing the button and getting nothing. I just gave up and moved on to other things.

     

    Last Sunday (8/31) there was a My Finds PQ in my email that had run at 12:48 AM PDT.

     

    Today, Saturday (9/6), which is only 6 days, the My Finds PQ was in my email and ran at 12:50 AM PDT.

     

    The odd part is that I never requested, or even had the chance to request, the PQ.

     

    Same thing happened to me. I had a My Finds PQ this morning and I did not request it

  8. Perhaps I missed something, but I was not clear if you wanted this cache to be something that would need to be opened while underwater or something someone would pull up from above then open? If it will have swag inside my guess is it would be pulled to the surface to open.

     

    As others have said a Nalgene bottle would work well, as would a Pelican case or otter box. As far as keeping it down, some lead weights tied to the string would work well for that purpose. I guess they type used in fishing would work well for that.

     

    For a log book you might try something a little different like an underwater slate.

  9. Does it really matter the gender of the hider/finder? Not as far as I am concerned. Anyway we have lots of female cachers in this area.

     

    I can understand why one might associate a name with a gender, but if BlueDolphin had not been taken (and never logged in again), that is who I would be, but I went with my alter ego Pink since that one was available. I just chalk it up to admitting that I have multiple personalities (PinkDolphin caches, BlueDolphin dives, and CatOlphin causes trouble)

  10. No.

     

    One disk is in Utah and the other in extreme Northern Arizona. Do you want me to tell where exactly, or do you want to guess again? :anibad:

    No it is not important, I just saw the Red Rock and immediately thought Sedona. I have a time share there and have been there 3 times, if it were near Sedona I would hit it up the next time I am there (whenever that may be)

  11. I usually just reply "thank you for visiting ________". If they don't respond with the required information I ask that they do.

     

    I have had a couple people say they didn't answer the questions and they said it because my page was too long and it didn't fit into their PDA. I suggest they try. Oddly one of those who said that had the photo with the correct background. Somehow they usually come back with the correct answers.

  12. Does anyone know any active cachers in Aruba, it looks as if most of the caches there (all 15 or so of them) were placed by people who do not live there?

     

    Thanks.

  13.  

    Friend's List - The numerous requests you've made to return the hide/find functionality are not lost on us. I can say at this time that we do have plans for a complete renovation of this feature in the near future, so please be patient with us and it will become a much more useful part of the site soon. I'm very sorry this upset so many of you.

     

     

    Thank you! :D

     

    I don't much care about the hides, but the finds...love that info!

     

    I will try to be patient.

     

    Now if my avatar will update....oh well

  14. I am trying to change my forum avatar (I was able to change it on GC.com), it also look as if my forum avatar should have been updated but it didn't'

     

    This is the message I get about the update

     

    Important! If you make any changes to your profile and they do not update in the forums, click on the "Register" link on the forums page and it will send you to a page to update those settings.

     

    I can't seem to find the "register" link can someone point me in that direction?

     

    Thanks

  15. [*]Removed find and hide count from friends list

    Looks like a lot of great fixes, but I can't understand "Removed find and hide count from friends list". You have now removed the only useful feature of the Friends List. :anitongue:

     

     

     

    I really liked that feature!
