When did Premium Caches stop appearing on the maps for Non-Premium members?

 

Seeing them is very helpful to me when considering new hides and the ability to see if a Premium cache is near or would be blocking my placement. Or to help me decide if I wanted to buy the premium membership by seeing if there are many in the areas around me that would be available if I was Premium.

Does anyone here know if a change was made recently that disabled the sending of emails when you now authorize GSP via the API?

 

The website I run uses a GC login plugin that leverages the API. Everytime a user logs in, it would present the "authorize" screen from GSP's API, and then send them an email if they clicked allow. It seems these emails are no longer sent. I'm just wondering if this was intentional or by accident. I actually prefer not to get the email but am just wondering if it should be doing that.

As mentioned in another thread, PMO caches don't appear on maps even for premium members at certain zoom levels. Noted as a bug.

 

Do they appear if you zoom in?

 

I tried all zoom levels and they don't appear at any one of them. I used Firefox and Chrome to try it.

We have a bug in for the issue of PMO caches not appearing for any members when viewing the non-personalized map levels (i.e. when zoomed out). On the personalized levels (i.e. when zoomed in), PMO caches do not display for basic members by design.

It turns out that this was intentionally turned off by the engineering team working on geocaching labs. Many users found the emails annoying and unnecessary.
