Search not working properly?

Recommended Posts

Anybody else having a problem with the Waymarking.com search feature?  I am trying to narrow down searches to within a search radius of my zip code, but I still get results from all over the world.  This was working just a couple days ago.

It works for me providing I also include my State eg 2541,NSW. If I just use the post code (zipcode) I get a cemetery in Ohio plus 7490 other waymarks with none in Australia.

This is hit or miss for me, sometimes it gives me a location in Germany or the Netherlands. Getting worse for locations not entered into the search bar. Helps occasionally when I add town name, completely type out state full name (no abbrevations) and add USA (as I live there).

Search is not working for me.  I entered a nearby town by name and get all the newest waymarks, not those I wanted.

I am trying to search for waymarks in Madrid, Spain and the result is incomprehensible. The first waymark is in Oklahoma, the second in Germany, the next in London, all with seemingly no connection to Madrid, Spain. 

 

I do think something is seriously broken.

Have had this problem for a couple of weeks now...enter the place name and get a list of the latest waymarks published. Have had success using GPS coords from the area, but I agree, something is really wrong here.

It doesn't work for me very often. And when you do mange to do a search it doesn't list all the waymarks in the area.

Searching for a location is nigh on impossible. Once searched it brings up random waymarks from all around the globe. This is deffo a poor mans page. I have to do a co-ordinate search to get anywhere. To do that i find a cache on geocaching.com and take a set of co-ords from a random cache in the area i want to visit and put these in the co-ordinate search box. Thats the only way it'll work for me. Long winded and not really user friendly. Come WM, get your finger out and sort these probs out, or are you just winding this feature down 😞

When you open the listing of that geocache, you will find a link to "all nearby waymarks on Waymarking.com". That is much easier than copying the coordinates to use them in a search on Waymarking.com.

I contacted geocashing.com about this problem, but, they said they were too busy taking of geocashing to bother with Waymarking - but they are too happy to take my money each year.

We also pay our money each year, though we rarely geocache.  :signalviolin:

We are (paying) waymarkers and geocachers, but even if some of the improvements on the geocaching side are nice to have, I could make a list of improvements that I would gladly trade for some important updates/bugfixes on the Waymarking side.
