Is there a way to hide all geocaches hidden by a certain geocacher?

Recommended Posts

A geocacher in my area has thousands of junk geocaches in the area that I have no interest in finding. Is there a way to have them not show up on my map? (besides going in and ignoring all of them)  thanks!

Not really a solution when you have to ignore caches. One. By. One.

 

I have the same problem. I need to investigate gpsbabel as a way to create filtered XML files. Then (hopefully) I'll be able to turn the "spewcacher" folder in my caching app (Locus) on or off depending on my mood.

I too would like to be able to eliminate caches by certain individuals. Hundreds of power trail caches that clog my load and reduce my load area radius by a 100kms or more.

At this point, Groundspeak does not offer a solution. There are third-party solutions (e.g., GSAK) that allow you to add caches that meet certain criteria to your ignore list.

Cachly has the option of filtering out up to 5 cache owners. I was told five was the limit set by GCHQ.

Every time a commercial's on, ignore two caches.

The site has said (with the numerous other threads on this subject ;-) that they want to steer away from negativity.    :)

You can ignore a cache, but not a person.  I believe the only reason it's allowed here is because the forums are separate from the site.

Years ago I ignored caches, but today I'd spend most my time ignoring caches:D

Today, I ignore those that are on the same search grouping of caches I'll do,  but have issues (inaccurate D/T, and container condition mostly).

All those nondescript pill bottles someone placed just because they could, I just happily walk by.

Ignoring caches, one by one, from a specific owner doesn't stop the notifications the next time that caches puts out another 100+ cache series.
