    Money in a Geocache

    I'm guessing it may have cost more to print than what it's worth.

    The biggest jewel heist in history!

    Yeah and that's understandable. I don't think they expect everyone to get involved It's an optional additional layer providing a whole different kind of experience, and I'm guessing the active average demographic will be younger for this one. I hope they keep the analytics going. I know I'll be working through it, but I like story-telling and progressive experiences like this.

    The biggest jewel heist in history!

    Thank you for taking the time to explain this simply. I kinda see now what is happening. Sadly, for me, it's not a promotion that's going to inspire me to rush out and find caches (and hence clues) to solve some virtual mystery. I'm a simple person and like my geocaching on then same level (It probably explains my lack of success in solving Mystery caches even after reading 'How To' books . I'm sure some, nay, many will thoroughly enjoy this promotion and good luck to them, I wish them every success.

    Wann Challenge loggen?

    Challenge"caches" sind ja schon extrem sinnlos. Aber nochmal zur Dose fahren, nachdem man die Bedingung erfüllt hat, ist die Maximierung der Sinnlosigkeit. Soll man dafür unnötig die Umwelt durch eine sinnlose Fahrt belasten, nur um einen Cache erneut zu finden und sich nochmal ins Logbuch einzutragen? Was macht man bei Dosen, die man nicht mehr (mit vertretbarem Aufwand) erreichen kann, weil sie weit weg liegen und man sie z.B. im Urlaub gefunden hat oder man zwischenzeitlich aufgrund des jetzt höheren Alters (oder einem anderen Grund) nicht mehr klettern kann, um die Dose oben im Baum zu erreichen?

    Watchlist Problem!?

    Wie kann jemand anderes auf Deinen (Zweit)Account zugreifen? Hast Du den gelöscht, jemand anderes hat sich mit diesem Namen erneut registriert und die Watchlist blieb dabei erhalten?

    Foto-Logbedingung bei EarthCaches nun wieder zulässig

    Frag doch mal eine(n) der vorherigen Logger*innen.

    Let's see, we've been discussing CO's who don't want finds on their caches due to this promotion (and other implied references back to CO's who have archived caches because people have found them for reasons unliked i.e.. number runs, challange cache check box, and such) so I guess those are the ones.

    Can't publish photo on cache page

    ...and of course, make sure the editor is in "HTML mode" or whatever they're calling it now. The editor changed just a few days ago, and I don't think the help text has been updated yet.

    App won't navigate.

    Uh... Years ago there was a paid app from Groundspeak. It no longer works, even if you still have it. The current app is free, and paying for premium membership is optional. This seems to be a discussion about the current app.

    Thank you. I think you said it better than I did. Who is saying "Don't find my cache for XX reason"?

    Got it, Phoenix Cluster. Search from Home Page and typed it in.

    OK, I guess you'll have to give us more info so we can see this waymark. Search doesn't find it.

    Designing Cool Containers

    Designing Cool Containers

    We took 11 dollars worth of materials. We took epoxy and stuck a Big bison tube to a rock and let it dry. Then inside we left it holding a bison tube, holding centrifuge tube, holding a small nano for 4 layers of redundancy keeping the log book dry for our underwater cache GC8948E sitting at the bottom of the James River in Richmond, Virginia. We then painted the rock and set it at the bottom of the river. So far this design has managed to stay dry for a month not even the first container has been breached. Message me with questions.

    Yeah, it seems like there's some sort of glitch in the "official" app. My phone is up to date, but the app won't work. All the other apps work, so I'm just not able to use my bought and paid for Groundspeak app..

    oy. When you make a meal for a family, you could be making it merely so that people have something to eat, or you could be making it as a very expressive, creative, experiencial meal with a lot of time, effort, money, soul poured into it. If the former, then sure, it doesn't matter what people think about it, if they eat it and are no longer hungry. But for the latter, yes absolutely the cook is making it for other people to enjoy in the manner the creator provided it to be enjoyed. A group that wolfs it down, breaks cutlery, is rude and messy, will certainly not endear the cook to ever create a meal like that again, at least for them. That's not petty. Now, you can be the former cook, or you can be the latter cook - this hobby is flexible that way. And, you can be people who just consume so they're not hungry, or you can be people that try to enjoy every experience the way the creator intended. The latter is just better for everybody. And one who creates for other people, the latter mentality is riskier and more likely to experience disappointment -- but it's definitely not petty. It's like wine tasting. You won't be garnering any respect if you keep walking up and slurping down the drink... Anyone who expresses the mentality "I just make caches for people to find, and it doesn't matter to me if they 'cheat' as long as they have fun" is the former creator. And that's..just..fine. But don't call people who desire for people enjoy their caches a certain way petty if people don't respect the cache and cause them to be discouraged putting that much effort in the future. But I will agree that as a creator you do have the choice of how upset you'll be if someone doesn't experience your creation the way you intended. If it's harmed in a way that affects the experience for others (requiring your attention), I think you're justified in being angry and responding appropriately. But if it's not harmed (like someone logging a cache found that only one person in the group experienced the intended way, or they got puzzle coordinates from someone, or someone climbed the tree for them, etc), then you can choose to shrug it off. Let's try to avoid blanket categorization by saying that anyone who cares about their cache is 'petty'.

    Log deletions

    I agree. I have different stamps for different size logsheets/books. I've thought about cutting one from a pencil eraser for nano logs...

    New category Maypoles

    Guild poles sound quite regional. I agree that if the Maypoles are accepted in the Holiday Display - no need for a separate category.

    That example doesn't make sense to me. How is finding a cache for a reason the CO doesn't like, and finding a cache for whatever reason the CO does like at all similar to eating food or using it for someother activity? Whatever the reason for finding that particular cache, it's still finding a cache. There are so many reasons for finding a particular cache - many times they may overlap and mix together - that for someone to say "Don't find my cache for XX reason" is petty and controlling.

    New category Maypoles

    I have posted several maypoles in the Holyday Displays category. There was no problem within. So no need for the new maypole category. Maybe still a need for the guilde poles ...

    Sample PHP code for OAuth token retrieval

    Probably this as all apps using the old API no longer work. There's been a loooong period of time for API devs to prep for a complete move to the new API. I'd say, get your updated for the new API and get it working, rather than spending time trying to make your old api access work

    How do I register a trackable for my vehicle?

    I'm thinking of just printing the code on card paper and putting inside, back window so people can see it.

    Can't publish photo on cache page

    Make sure that you're using the URL of the image file, rather than the URL of a page that displays the image. For example, here is a page that displays a picture: https://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=00ade7bf-022b-4387-9ccf-7edb6e6023ef&IID=74faf9f0-fc73-49cc-a55a-b8385b404a1c And here is a link to the picture itself: https://s3.amazonaws.com/gs-geo-images/74faf9f0-fc73-49cc-a55a-b8385b404a1c.jpg

    TAAAA DAAAA!!!! Bingo!!! fi67 is on a roll today!!! Well DONE! And it is now his turn for a brain teaser! (Unless Alfouine should choose to step in. Haven't heard from him yet.) Why does WMQXDN not return a hit when I search for it from the "Home" Page? Others do, but not that one. Luckily, I had copied it and was able to find where I had put it (which often isn't the case).

    Is it really being petty though? Imagine that you invest time (and money) preparing a family recipe for a potluck. That evening, at the potluck, people don't even taste your dish. Instead, someone grabs a portion, takes it outside, and uses it to scrub road grime from the alloy rims of a custom car. Wouldn't you be disappointed? Is it really petty to be disappointed in such a situation?
