On the website click on report a problem.

Did you see my screenshot above?

looks like a mobile app.. issue is with logging in a PC.
I don't use any mobile app and log ONLY from GSAK and the website.

So why is the option removed from the bottom of the website to contact Groundspeak?

I am sitting at my computer. My desktop. The big big bulky thing in my kitchen. Yes, it IS a computer.

On the logging page, click on where it says Report a problem on the right hand side between the log window and the trackables window. This will then bring up some predefined NMs (container is damaged, cache might be missing, etc.) depending on the log type, as well as options for Cache should be Archived and Other for anything not covered by the available options.

I see the same logging screen as Max and 99 using my laptop.

As for the Contact Us ... do you mean the banner at the bottom of each cache page which shows four headings and then clickable links underneath?

Good catch. I thought I'd remembered being able to click on contact us but maybe I just imagined it. It appears you are exactly right!

If you're not already writing a log, such as a found it, then clicking there's a problem, you don't get the options. If you want to post an NM or Archive, then in your new log, you have to click opt-out in the top right to get the old logging options. It's stupid.

@x_xenolith_x On the website, there's Old Logging and New Logging.

 

  • If you're mostly logging through GSAK I believe that you can ask to default to Old Logging.
  • Logging directly from the site, you absolutely can default to old logging (on the logging page, see "opt out" in the upper right). 
  • On Old Logging, the pull down on a cache you don't own is Found it, DNF, Write Note, NM, NA
  • Old logging page has the bottom navigation bar,(ie contact us) new logging page does not - it's been optimized for phones (less info, more white space).

 

I suspect that at some point, Old Logging will disappear, I hope that they revise "new" to be easier to use. 

On a cache that you own, to update coords you MUST use New Logging - the Update Coords log does not appear in old logging, since they did away with "add a waypoint to this log".
