402 posts in this topic

Lost & Found

 

The full Lost & Found companion site is live! Visit the site to watch videos (more added each week) and share your own geocaching story with the community. You can also nominate logs written by other geocachers by visiting the log on the cache page and clicking "Nominate this log as a Lost & Found story".

 

Official Blog of Geocaching.com

 

The new blog, Latitude 47, is now live and features regular content about geocaching and geocaching-related news. Check it out and be sure to vote in the weekly caption contest to win a barely-coveted geocaching prize!

 

Trackables Collection

 

Has the list of Trackables you are "holding" grown out of control? For those of you with a collection of geocoins or mileage-tracker bugs we have added a new virtual collection to your profile. More information can be found in the Trackables Collection knowledge book.

 

Language Translations

 

This one is exciting for us. For the first time we are able to offer site translation in 5 major languages; including German, French, Portuguese, Czech and Swedish. This is a work in progress, so not all text and navigation has been translated at this time, although many of the key areas of the site have been. We will continue this localization effort until all areas of the site have been translated in these languages, as well as add entirely new language options down the road. You can select a language preference in your profile and in the footer on every page of the site. Many thanks to the geocachers who contributed their time and knowledge to this effort!

Very long list!

 

Trackables Collection

 

Has the list of Trackables you are "holding" grown out of control? For those of you with a collection of geocoins or mileage-tracker bugs we have added a new virtual collection to your profile. More information can be found in the Trackables Collection knowledge book.

 

Now, just read the Trackables Collection knowledge book.

I don't know about this having/letting 'other' cachers 'collect' TBs.

I understand very well the need to make yourself a 'collection' list, and move in/out your own TBs from this list.

I log every TB I have in my possession at the time I 'Found' a cache, aka 'dip', mine AND others, until I find a cache appropriate to 'drop'.

Having a 'Collection' may help others with large self-owned TB collection, as this new feature seems to be intended for.

BUT, this feature should NOT be available for any TBs owned by others!

Why do you want your own TBs to be collected by others?!

TBs that are not yours MUST always be listed in the holder's 'Inventory' list all the time, as a 'necessary reminder' that they have it.

TB are meant to travel from cache to cache, once released into the 'wild', NOT Collected!

Just my thought.

 

Hampsters are live & kicking!

Look forward to all the improvements!

Self-reply.

 

Forgot to mention.

By default, if the TB 'Status type' is 'Unknown' (The owner did not choose Collectible or Non-Collectible upon activation.), these items SHOULD NOT be collected by another players, and should be "Non-Collectible".

In all, there should be no 'Unknown' from the beginning, 'Non-Collectible' by default, and if there is a really large need, add 'Collectible' status.

 

But, again, I do not like the idea of another cacher 'collecting' my own TBs.

A concept very misleading.

 

Just my thought.

If you don't want your Trackable collected just set the status to "non-collectible". Doing so will remove it from a person's collection and place it in their inventory. Many times the owner of a series of geocoins mean for them to be collected.

HOW LONG is the expected downtime?

Any goals to WHEN it will be back online?

It would be very helpful for all cacher to know this information.

I just read the 3.3. Trackable Collections article. I hope it's not true.

 

As written, it states that all the TB and Coin owners whose items are already traveling and who do nothing to "set the status" of their trackables in the next few days are granting carte blanc for those items to be collected by others. This cannot be right.

The status is "Unknown" until the TB owner sets it. The owner has not explicitly said they want it to be collected, although until they make a decision one way or the other it can be.

 

However, if you want to discuss the how's and why's of the feature I'd ask you to please open a new thread. Since this is a big release I'd prefer to keep the discussion focused on technical aspects so I don't miss any bug reports. Thanks.

Thanks for the quick response, Nate!

 

I understand the need for TB collectors. But, that should be ONLY for the TBs you own yourself. Never for TBs owned by others.

I just wanted to point out that "By Default", all TBs should be 'Status'-typed as 'NON-collectable', never 'Unknown'.

 

Many times the owner of a series of geocoins mean for them to be collected.

 

Really?! First time to hear such thing!

You mean, there are many TB owners out there that release their TBs into the wild, just to have them be "collected", not moved, by other cachers? How generous!

This is not about a new non-activated TB, distributed to other collectors who will activate & 'own' the TB, right? All about 'activated' TBs, correct?

Well, I'm just a tadpole, so I guess the GC & TB game world is way bigger than I can image!

Wow, nice long list of updates... I'd like to plug the treeclimb attribute again, for next rollout :)

 

Anyway, I agree - the default for any trackable should be non-collectible. Even if its status is 'Unknown', unknown should then not be collectible. From my experience, collectible geocoins are generally not activated, and given away at events, not activated and dropped in caches - which to me means its intent is to be moved from cache to cache.

 

Having all trackables as of this update be 'collectible' I think is really, really bad. I feel for people who may have hundreds of tbs out there who'd have to change the status of every single one...

This is outrageous! Basically you're telling to the inhabitants of the country "Unknown" to pick another country from now on. Outrageous!

Too bad, he just doesn't get it.

AND, he doesn't want us to talk about it here.

Okay, as you wish, just started a new 'FIRE' here.

3.3. Trackable Collections: Pros & Cons

 

Yes Raine, TB & Geocoin ARE different, but don't they 'act' the same in GC.com, except for the icon?

 

Now, since GC.com is back up, I will start diving a bit.

 

Thanks anyways for all this to happen!

Lovely Hampsters!

Seems like a bug:

i can move TBs from Trackables Inventory to "Trackables Collection" and back --> works. cool!

But if i use the checkbox in the TB details page this seems to have no impact

 

an example is TB3J0HC. it is marked as "Make this Trackable collectible" on TBs detail page but in fact it is in the "Trackables Inventory"

 

rds,

sascha

Wanted to check to see if the bug where the degree symbol appears in the input box has now been fixed when trying to edit co-ordinates for an existing waypoint but when I click on Edit on an existing waypoint on any of my listed caches, I now get a "404 - File or directory not found" error. Can some see if they can reproduce this error. I'm using Firefox 3.6.3.

and you can't click on the map to see the other caches around the one you are viewing or satellite views....instead you have to click the link to the left...

 

Edit...because I found the link... :)

Glad to hear this is coming back. That's the primary way I planned my caching trips. Hopefully you can solve the issues soon. I may just take a break until then.

At the risk of reigniting rumors that we hate greasemonkey scripts and baseball/apple pie, I'm going out on a limb here and saying this is a script you installed.

 

Edit: Just tested - this is something new. I'll take care of it.

On a trakable page, the "Tracking History (6669mi)" line the mileage updates but on the list(the log section) below the mileage between placement logs does not.

 

Is this broken now?

 

I tried to 'recalculate mileage' and it use to then show up but doesn't now.

I "liked" one of my own caches ( a 10 years! event) just to see what happened... on my facebook page I get "Rob likes Error Occurred." The like option worked find for someone else's cache.

I got the same issue when I 'liked' GC29JDW, which is a member's only unknown cache.

 

It seems Facebook needs a Premium Membership. We're opening a bug for it. Thank you.

We do some caching here to reduce calls to the database. Give it a bit and let us know if you still don't see it.

Visit your inventory and do it there:

http://www.geocaching.com/my/inventory.aspx

 

We'll have to add a feature to allow you to move it from the Trackable details page so other people aren't confused.

Not shore if it has been removed but on any cache page the second lower/larger map on the cache page does not let you zoom in or out anymore.

 

That map will be back, I had to switch to static map to get some time to work on javascript issues that had come up. A bigger and better map will be coming soon!

Can't you put it back the way it was until you can get it right? I'm done caching until it gets fixed. BTW bigger isn't better.. takes more ink and all we need there is a small area. Big maps are available from the link to the left if they are necessary.

hmm... it seems that this action doesn't send out an email to the owner of the TB/GC. it may be important to know when somebody else moves your own TB/GC to their collection!

pppps: and it looks like "mark as missing" actions don't send emails out any more either. maybe the email system is generally borken?

1480: Error in Friends Page "caches hidden" count

Removed hides/finds count from Friends page

 

Not sure if I would label this as a bug fix. I used the find counts on the "my friends" page a lot to check if they recently did some caching. You removed one of the few benefits of the friends functionality.

So, grabbing a trackable from someone and placing it into a cache works as badly as before? Unless the new logs are fixed but the old ones stay incorrect? I'm talking about the case when A grabs a trackable from B and places it into cache Z, the logs read from oldest to newest: "B grabbed it from Z", "A grabbed it from Z" and "A placed it into Z". This is such an elementary feature I'm out of words.

 

1480: Error in Friends Page "caches hidden" count

Removed hides/finds count from Friends page

 

What? That's not a bug fix! It couldn't have been that badly off. Remove "Location" and "Title" but don't remove the only useful piece of information from the Friends page! Display it as "found approx. # caches" if it's incorrect.
