BUG: New cache submission process selects the wrong region


Recommended Posts

New cache submission process selects the wrong region


To replicate the problem

Start a new cache listing

On the location page put in some co-ordinates

eg: N 52° 24.691 W 001° 46.600


Click 'confirm on map'

Region drop-down changes to Southern England

should most definitely be West Midlands!

This will explain why new caches are being published under the wrong region

Hi Mark,


Groundspeak are currently looking into the problem with Region Selection. For the time being the auto-select version has now been turned off until the bug has been fixed.


I do check the mapping but if I am zoomed in too much I might not see the name of the town/city! As most of the caches have gone into the South Queue I have missed at least one, which I have published in the wrong region.


The cache you mention I have now changed to the correct region.


If you find any others then please drop me an e-mail and I can change them, though I am currently away on holiday so may take a few days to do.


Thanks for bringing this to our attention and I can assure you the problem is currently being worked on.
