Post Codeword
First time logging a cache for a long time in GCA :lol:
We just visited a "Virtual" cache and now trying to log it I am asked for a "codeword". Where do I get a codeword for a virtual?
GA11051

OK - it's all fixed. Found what I had to do to get the codeword, but it wasn't working. CO has since fixed and it the virtual is now logged.

Just FYI though as you haven't logged on for a while, GA 11051 is a history cache not a virtual, hence the requirement for the codeword

Oh - I see. However when I open the cache using GSAK (offline) it comes up as a Virtual with the "ghost" character as well. But I see that when you view the cache on-line, it says "History"
Got a bit of catching up to do :D

That's true - but unfortunately things like GSAK have to be written to follow Groundspeak's implementation of GPX rather than the official standard (whatever that actually says) which means sites like GCA are limited in the way they can add things like new icons as they won't be supported by software like GSAK or presumably the various mobile apps like Cachly or c:geo.

As long as you're using us a bit more, all is good. Hope you can find a few more in your travels :D
