Pocket Query: recent erroneous DNF?

Recommended Posts

Hey Gang, first post here, be gentle. ;)

 

I'm wondering if it's possible to create a pocket query to show me all those geocaches that I have marked as DNF but that have been found subsequently / recently. Looking back at my list of DNFs, I reckon they can be easily divided into two camps; those that are lost to the mists of time, and those that are still around (and just managed to elude me). 

 

I can set 'I have not found' and 'found in last 7 days' but I really want to intersect that with 'marked by me as DNF' - only I can't. Any ideas?

Hmmm... I wonder if after you created a PQ "I have not Found" + "Found in the last 7 days", based on the results you can manually create a List with the caches that you have really DNF'd only? Will save you some time (not much, though).

Nope, there's no way to do this using Pocket Queries. That system doesn't deal with DNFs in any way. There may be a way to do it using more advanced tools like GSAK, so let us know if you use that and/or are interested in trying it out to see if it can do what you want.

One thing you might want to consider, especially now when your caching history is not too long, is to create a bookmark list of caches you have DNF'd.  The newer your account, then the easier this task is, because the number of caches is shorter.

 

You can get to your list of DNF logs by going HERE - Dashboard -> Geocache Logs -> Show: Didn't Find It

Then, click on each of these caches and add them to a Bookmark List.  If you don't know how to do this, then just ask.

 

When you view a bookmark list, then you can easily see which ones you have since found, which ones are now disabled/archived, and which ones are still active.

Trying to see which ones have been found by anyone after you DNF'd it is a bit trickier.  You could view the Bookmark List using this URL hack:   https://www.geocaching.com/play/search?bm=BMxxxxx   (replacing BMxxxxx with your DNF bookmark list's code) and then sort by Last Found to see which ones have been found recently, but nothing would indicate if that Last Found date was before or after your DNF date.

Once you've created the bookmark list take following steps:

  • Create a pocket query from the bookmark list.
  • Run the pocket query and there will be an option to sort by "last found" date.
  • Delete the ones that are no longer needed from your bookmark list to keep it manageable.

To reiterate what others have said, using GASK makes this a lot easier, but that's not what you asked.

All above and especially the bolded. And so easy to do, too!
