Some (not all) DNFs not appearing on PQ

6 posts in this topic

Just ran a very local (20 mile) and limited (Trad., Reg., ALL/<=3) PQ for this weekend, and I've noticed that some DNF caches within those parameters show up, while others don't.  Have triple-checked the caches criteria.  Any guesses what I'm doing wrong?  TIA

Just to be clear what you mean by a "DNF cache", do you mean that caches you've logged a DNF on aren't returned at all? If so, can you give an example of a cache that should fit your PQ's criteria and isn't being returned?

In addition to explaining what a "DNF cache" is (as The A-Team noted above), it might also help if you posted the URL of your PQ.  It won't give us access to your account or anything, but would let us see what filters/options you've included in your PQ, which would help us troubleshoot the issue with you.

The URL would look something like:  https://www.geocaching.com/pocket/gcquery.aspx?guid=737ad1f5-d82a-4a57-83bc-808a27e2ad6d

Also, please confirm that the query returns fewer caches than the maximum limit you specified.  For example, if you asked for up to 1000 caches, adjust the parameters (distance, date hidden, etc.) so that the query returns 999 or fewer caches.  If there are 2000 caches within the 20 mile radius you specified, then the pocket query generator will pick and choose caches  that will be included or excluded from the 1000 caches returned in the GPX file.

Profuse apologies--found problem after another 1.5 hrs. of trial & hair-pulling.  Somehow a filter had been applied on GPSr.  Didn't even know it could do that--I've always applied filters when generating PQs.  Date of filter indicates it may have been when I was showing it to visitors, and they were playing around with it.  My face is sufficiently red.

Odd, since you were made aware of your GPS' filter capabilities in a thread you began last month.  But, no worries - the replies you received are good preliminary troubleshooting questions that might help someone else who's confused about their pocket query results.
