Caches along a GPX Route

Uploading a GPX format route file seems to have broken when all the changes were put in last month. This was reported and confirmed in another thread. However, that thread also discussed a number of other problems, and it seems that this particular one got lost in the noise.

 

If it's just me being stupid, I'd like some help getting it working again. If it's a problem with the site, I'd like some confirmation from gc.com that they know about the problem and will address it.

 

Here are the steps I've taken:

  1. Create Route in MapSource, export as GPX
  2. Go to http://www.geocaching.com/my/userroutes.aspx and select the "Upload GPX / KML" tab
  3. Click the "Browse..." button and select the .gpx file with the route.
  4. Click the "Upload" button.

No errors are reported, but the list of uploaded files is empty so I

cannot proceed further. Using Windows XP/Firefox 2.0.0.9

 

Uploading also fails with an old .gpx route file that I uploaded successfully 6 month ago.

 

This behavior has been confirmed by several other posters in the other thread:

One person reported using Delorme Topo instead of MapSource to create the GPX and getting the same result:

Apparently uploading a KML file still works, this is only a problem with GPX files.

Bump.

 

I'm looking for some acknowledgment that this issue has reached the ears of gc.com, and that it is on the to-do list.
