  1. While I appreciate some of the new features included with the new search tool, and would like to use them once all of the bugs are ironed out, I just cannot fathom why the page is set up the way it is visually. I just did a basic search by typing in a GC code and was pleased that that is working today but why are the results laid out the way they are? The search window with the map underlay along with the header on the page take up more than 1/2 of the screen using a relatively standard screen resolution. In the space where one would normally see 9 records, we are now only able to view 3 unless we scroll. Why the drastic reduction in efficiency and waste of space? Also, why are the icons so massive? Resolution: 1280 X 1024 Wouldn't it make more sense to reduce the amount of wasted space taken up by the search field? Seems to me that that could easily be dropped down to a single column under the header so the search results could be maximized for better display. Being a Premium member, I can't test this but I have been asked to also point out that the new Advanced search tool is now PMO? So non PMO's are not allowed to search beyond 30mi?
  2. The API isn't working at all for me. Can't update GSAK, can't create a Certitude record..
  3. Please add the ability for us to receive notifications in plain text. The new HTML format is inefficient and a waste of resources. Please keep it simple and functional.
  4. I was one of the many opposed to those and am very pleased to see them gone but I will agree that they didn't have to make them disappear altogether, unless of course corp discovered something about them that was worse than we all previously had advised? In any case, I'm one of the old timers I guess. I use my GPS (not a phone), seek the hide and sign the log. Anything else really isn't geocaching to me. Not sure I'll spend any time looking into these 'Labs' either.
  5. I know that this will probably upset a few Wherigo fans but honestly; Now that you can no longer purchase a GPSr that supports Wherigo, perhaps Groundspeak should kill them off like Garmin has.
  6. OMG!! I can't help but to laugh!!! Her current log is (IMHO) FAR worse than the original one!!!
  7. Take it in stride Duke... I've been much harsher in my logs - In fact, I really PO'd the logger in question once with a comment about a particular use of the hint field. It happens. Personally? If I knew one of my caches was not cammo'd when it should have been, I would have fixed it. If one of mine was placed 40 feet off? I would have disabled it and fixed it immediately! Placed in 2009? you should have fixed that YEARS ago! 40 feet off is totally unacceptable for a traditional hide. It's your call but I really didn't find her log all that bad - yes I read the original but we just got home from a freaking awesome weekend so I'm only now replying. have fun!
  8. Noticing this here as well. Trying to view unknown caches placed by a specific user shows 'username' instead of the actual user and the error stated above. <!-- Server: WEB14; Build: Web.HotFix_20130821.1 -->
  9. Good for you! I wish I could give you mine. I think they are silly and wish I could get rid of them.

    Deleting logs

    I like this idea. C-MNM and I both had our logs deleted recently merely because we mentioned that we had to be careful of the syringes and a homeless encampment at GZ. Personally, I would want to know that kind of stuff before I started my search for a cache. As a CO of several caches unless a log gives away the solution to a puzzle or the hide, I'll always send a message to the logger and ask for a change before I delete a log. Unless it's a blank one anyway.

    Deleting logs

    When you receive the log deletion notice, it includes a link to the deleted log. I just copy it and paste it back into a new log with the same date with a note to the CO as to why I am reposting it.
  12. Sorry if this has been submitted before, I just couldn't find anything using the search tool. Please merge if an existing bug report exists. The description explains the issue. using the maps to select an area to visit, I'll zoom out to see the density of puzzles or other unknowns but when I do, the Wherigo icons turn into unknown icons and Earthcache icons turn into virtuals. This happens regardless of which maps I use and with both IE9 and Firefox.
  13. You say that like it's a bad thing? ;-)
  14. Same here, cache pages show <!-- Server: WEB07; Build: Web.HotFix_20121204.1 --> Tried Firefox and IE latest versions on Win 7 x64.
  15. Correct, the attributes are not available in edit nor were they available when she crated the event. It's as though the attributes are simply not available for event postings.
  16. My partner and I are hosting an event http://coord.info/GC3PQKA which is to be a Beach BBQ, swimming and Kayaking/Canoeing event yet we cannot locate nor add the desired attributes for may require wading, may require swimming etc... Where did they go??? TIA! Zop for C-MNM.

    It was fixed this afternoon. Is it still not working for you? I think it's fixed now but it wasn't when I posted the above frustration.

    Is this ever going to get fixed? I'm at the point where I want to punch my computer!!!!!
  19. There are better ways of attaching a cache without damaging a tree. Many people do not know that the metals are toxic to some types of trees.

    Ok.. This is a bit odd, my partner is NOT having the same issue on her laptop. Win 7 Home Premium w/IE9. - Yet..?

    I'm experiencing the same issue here regardless of computer or browser I use. I vary from XP to Windows 7, IE v8, 9, 10 and FireFox 12.

    [FEATURE]

    I say...it's already there. Under the play drop down, there's a find trackables option. So that's just one click. Or you could just type in /track after the GC. com addy That's right.. It is a link to "Find trackables" Sorry, to me that means to look for them. What I am referring to is a simple link on your profile trackables page to be able to log that you retrieved a trackable. Perhaps it's just bad grammar but clicking on the play pull down menu to find a trackable in order to log one is rather unintuitive especially for a new cacher that isn't very familiar with the site. It may help a little with keeping TB's and coins in play.

    [FEATURE]

    I've found that it is not very intuitive to have to drill down into 'Find Trackables" in order to log that you have retrieved or dropped a trackable. Instead, wouldn't it make since to have a link on your "http://www.geocaching.com/my/travelbugs.aspx" page? Even having a link to "Log a trackable" on the Play toolbar item would make more sense to me. Whaddya say?
