Earthcaches and Travelbugs/Geocoins

Recommended Posts

There's still hope...all we need is to keep asking.

 

There is a thread on the Feature requests - perhaps you'd like to answer that there?

 

As the OP = I don't want to bump it up as it is not ettiquette. But fter the new inclusion of EC submittal - perhaps its a good time to ask?

Well this has now happened - so a great idea has come through. Glad to see this thread can now be closed :ph34r:

Yes, I agree. Thanks for making this happen. It is a feature that we will enjoy. :D

Hey guys, no flames please, but I have a question. Since we can 'dip' coins into ECs, is there anything wrong with going back to the first found EC and working forward, log a single coin into each EC found? I was thinking of using one of our platinum coins to do so.

It may take a little while but it would fun to see the miles and then keep it up-to-date.

Thanks. :)

I don't see why it would be a problem, it's just like going back and dipping a personal tb into each cache you've been to. :)

O.K. When I click on the "view past trackables" on EarthCaches, nothing happens? Is there a reason, or a problem with why past trackables that have visited the cache can not be viewed? :(

Did I break the thread? I have logged 3 EC's and used the option to let my trackables visit the EC's, and they show to have visited the EC. But on the EC's inventory page where it says trackable history and view past trackables, I am unable to view past trackables. Nothing happens when you try and click on the link? This is only happining on EC's, and not traditionals. B) Anybody know why? :)

Agreed - I have the same problem. It would be great to see how many other EC hunters have passed their coins / TB's through my TB's. OTOH I suppose we should just be grateful that we can actually log our travelers through EC's. :(

 

BTW, I have just completed retro-visiting all my EC's that I have found and developed with my EarthCache geocoin. 27 EC's has clocked up over 105,000km for my coin already! :( I was pleasantly surprised! :)

I am hoping that I can find some kind of geocoin that has some type of EC icon, I plan on doing the same thing. Maybe just use my trackable tattoo icon, or both.

Did you log just a visit? Can you provide me the cache code/name/link? Thanks.

MPH - I have purchased the EarthCache Geocoin that has the same icon as the EC icons. You can look at a photo on my coin's page - TB2YYR1

The Eartcache coins are available from Grounspeak - and then Earthcache.org has a set of 4 EC coins (bronze thru platinum).

I got one of the Groundspeak "Official" EC geocoins but have not activated it yet, just waiting for Earth day. I will have to check out the other site. Thanks. :)

wow, I'm late to discovering this - awesome!

 

For those who've reported problems - are these getting worked out?

 

Good comment - BTW has anyone reported the issue to GS officially?

 

If not - perhaps cincol or Manville Possum Hunters can do it? I'll certainly give you a vote on that.

I've not had any problems and have been able to dip my GS EC coins as well as my GSA EC coins.

 

The problem that was referred to in the thread was that of not being able to see how many coins/TB's have visited your EC. Because they cannot be dropped the history of what has visited remains blank. It would be nice to be able to see how many have visited - just like a normal cache. But hey, let's not complain too loud - at least we can now have our coins/TB's visit EC's.

I believe it was reported in the first feedback forum, but not the second one. At least not that I can find.

I just checked, and the link is working now. Maybe it got attention in the first feedback site? I'm glad to see it working correctly, it is a very nice new feature.

Okay, let me restate then that when I said that I was having no problems I also meant that in dipping an EC coin that I could do and see the same things as I could with any other type of coin and on any other cache. Including seeing the coin listed within the page's history of TB/coins visited. So the history of what has visited was not blank, and I can also look at the history of mine and see all the visits that it made. Are you not able to do that?

There was a problem on the EC page that the view history of past trackables link would not function. This was limited to EC's when trackables were first allowed to visit. It works fine now, GC must have fixed it.
