What's happened to the geocaching site?


Recommended Posts

We just get this message when we try to look to caches. We don't have any add-ins etc.

What's going on?

:D

 

"Whoa! Slow Down

 

You've been redirected to this page because the site hamsters noticed you are viewing pages faster than humanly possible. There are several reasons why this may be happening:

 

You may have installed an add-in for your browser that is doing things you don't see.

You are using some automated tools to pull information on the site.

You have super human abilities.

What You Can Do

 

Stop! Have a cup of coffee, glass of water or go out geocaching. We'll let you back in shortly.

Disable any add-ons to your browser, like Greasemonkey, that may be hitting the site too fast.

Stop using automated tools to access the site. Like Mos Eisley Cantina, we don't allow droids here.

To the Super Humans

 

We're jealous! Hopefully you are the hero types and not the villains, but we don't judge. Just don't steal geocaches.

 

However, if you could be so kind as to slow down your super surfing, it would help our servers respond to other users that don't have super strength, speed, or tight fitting leotards."

posting website issues in country specific threads is not gonna accomplish much

 

maybe a MOD can move this thread

 

OK - but don't tell us off. We pay good money to Groundspeak for a "premium" service but since they started messing about with the website it's been getting worse and worse.

He wasn't telling you off, and he's just another geocacher like you and I. He was just telling you the truth... there is a better place for your complaints to be heard.

Maybe not a telling off but both his original reply and subsequent your retort could have been said in a much more pleasant way. I'm not surprised the Evil Poles got the hump. :D
