+kunarion Posted March 26, 2021 Share Posted March 26, 2021 (edited) No spoilers, please! This is a general question about possible recent changes to Tracking Codes. Can we have a serious conversation about Geocaching.com Tracking Codes? Until this past couple of months, we could tell new Geocachers that they can recognize a Geocoin or Travel Bug Tracking Code, by its SIX DIGIT code, a combination of SIX letters and numbers, but count'em... SIX. That's a clue that you've seen the Tracking Code, even if it's not on an official tag or coin. AND if you want to order a bunch of TBs or Geocoins, or a set of Tracking Codes to place on custom-made Trackable Items, you always get whatever you get... more SIX-digit Tracking Codes of assorted letters and numbers. Except for a 2-letter prefix, No vanity codes are allowed. You can't get the tracking code “ElleryQueen”, for example. There's a Trackable Item in the news lately. You find a “code” and enter it on the web site, and you can log it. IT ISN'T A SIX-DIGIT TRACKING CODE. With that in mind, riddle me this: Is this new vanity code something commonly available, that I've missed? Is it something that The Company intends to do more of? Can just anyone order a bunch of long-format vanity codes for their own coins now? Edited March 26, 2021 by kunarion Quote Link to comment
