Re: Stats idea - Top/Bottom caches by find rate

I'm confused.

The cache that is at "top days per find" will be the same cache that is at "bottom finds per day"? I think both of those will result in the same list of caches?

Re: Stats idea - Top/Bottom caches by find rate

Would this work better if you flipped the division - ie. calculate days/finds instead of finds/days ? (and sort by largest days/finds value) You get the wrong result. 5000 days / 1 find = 5000. 5000 days / 2 finds 2500. This counts the wrong thing. That looks correct to me? One cache that averages ...

Re: Stats idea - Top/Bottom caches by find rate

Actually thinking about it further, it'll always be skewed towards the newer caches. Since the average find rate across all caches is higher now than it was 10 years ago. (and presumably the find rate will keep increasing again once coronavirus is over)

Re: Stats idea - Top/Bottom caches by find rate

That's quite interesting, not the results I was expecting. It does seem a little skewed towards the newer caches (even if you ignore the @home ones) so maybe the 30 day limit needs to be increased - eg. to 100 days? The difference between caches with most finds vs cache with highest find rate is qui...

Re: Stats idea - Top/Bottom caches by find rate

I'm not sure of the right answer without some trial and error to see what gives sensible results. Probably just exclude archived caches since that solves a lot of the problems. Start date would be publish date if it available, hidden date if there is no publish date. End date is the current date. (e...

Stats idea - Top/Bottom caches by find rate

This might already exist but... (if so, where do I find it?) I was looking for a list of caches with the highest finds per day, is that possible? And also, the inverse of that: the caches with the least finds per day (or most days per find)? Would need to exclude caches with zero finds and new cache...

Re: Report Site Issues Here

This graph seems to cause the server to hit the memory limit: https://geocaching.com.au/stats/cachers ... t_1000.png

And side question, is a graph of fastest 10,000 finds possible?

Re: Report Site Issues Here

On the homepage, if you click on a state on the map, a request is made to:
https://geocaching.com.au/map-vic.png
(swap vic with whatever state you click on)

I'm not sure what the purpose of this request is, but currently it gives a 404 not found error which doesn't seem right.

Re: when is the next Garmin unit due?

I'd be interested to know the answer to this to. My 6 year old unit is due for replacement but there doesn't seem to have been a new model released for quite a while now.

Re: Idea: Links to personal stats without username

How do I see your heatmap? How does someone without an account see their heatmap? Your usecase doesn't address either of these. They use the current method. I'm not suggesting we remove anything. Just add a 'shortcut' for those that are logged in and wish to look at there own stats (which I would a...

Idea: Links to personal stats without username

Just an idea to make links easier to share on facebook, when you share links to personal stats they contain the username of the person the stats relate to. eg. https://geocaching.com.au/cacher/maps/Laighside+Legends/heatmap/ But if you want to share a link on facebook, they need to be generic - ie. ...

Re: What's new on Geocaching Australia

It seems to work now. And it's relatively quick as well. This idea first came up almost 10 years ago and was dismissed due to been too slow, what changed to make it feasible now?
