+lakedawgs Posted July 14, 2014 Share Posted July 14, 2014 Since the newsletter update (a year or two ago??), my "nearby events" are completely ridiculous... most are 100+ miles away, and rarely do any local ones show up. I just rec'd my newsletter today -- I am hosting an event tonight only a couple of miles from my home coords, yet the closest event listed is 100.19 miles away(??!!). Over this past weekend, I spoke to another cacher who lives in a different state... he is having the same issues, and has discontinued receiving the newsletter because it's pretty much useless otherwise. We agreed that he articles are nice, but the event listings are (were!) awesome and extremely handy. And honestly, I had better turn-out at my events when the newsletter listed them properly... now I rely more on Facebook to spread the word than Groundspeak. I really miss the previous format where the events were listed with proximity to your location in mind, not what seems to be just random events based on the state I live in (I guess this is the new method?? I really have no idea what algorithm they're using these days.). Just venting a little, thanks for listening... now I'm headed over to turn off my newsletter. It just clutters up my mailbox. But would someone tag me if they fix it, so I can turn it back on? LOL lakedawgs Quote Link to comment
