Release Notes (Geocaching Forums)- May 16, 2018
Today we have upgraded the software used to power the Geocaching forums.
One of the most visible updates is the addition of new “reaction” options. In the past, you could only upvote a post. Now, you can also choose to mark a post as Funny, Surprised, Helpful, or Love. The Funny and Surprised reactions are neutral, meaning they will not accrue to a poster’s reputation total. Upvote, Helpful, and Love will accrue to the reputation total. A user can choose only one reaction per post.
You can now edit or delete your posts at any time. Previously, you could edit your content up to 24 hours after posting. This restriction was in place so that threads would not lose context if content was edited or deleted a long time after posting. However, with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) taking effect on May 28, 2018, we are removing the edit/delete restriction so that users have more control over their content.
Ben F. from HQ’s IT Team is watching the thread to answer questions whenever possible.
