Unable to log into site

Has something changed in the log in procedure? I'm unable to log into the site to put a note on one of my own caches. I have to enter user name and password every time I visit, even though I consistently tick remember. Now I can't access at all. If I put an incorrect password in, I get a message tel...

No go caching areas

I was wondering what the best way is to figure what areas one may place a cache in and what obstacles need to be overcome to hide in those that are borderline. I was planning a Kangeroo Island cache a few months ago but it came up as a no-go. By the time I figured the situation, it was too late. I'v...

Re: Report dragonZone issues / problems here

Hmmm, to me it simply means that the description of the trophies should be altered from "distance travelled caching" to "random distance award", but it's only a game so I'll get back to caching and stop fussing over the logic. Many thanks for attempting to explain the unexplainable!

Re: Report dragonZone issues / problems here

Moving caches will skew the distance trophy. As caches that you have previously found continue to move, so too will the distance you've travelled increase. I'm sorry, still confused! I understand the different trophies but I'm curious as to how the caching distance is calculated. I would have thoug...

Re: Report dragonZone issues / problems here

Moving caches will skew the distance trophy. As caches that you have previously found continue to move, so too will the distance you've travelled increase. This is a known quirk, and actually adds a bit of fun to the dragonZone trophy aspect. The good thing about this is that everyone is in the sam...

Re: Report dragonZone issues / problems here

Not so much an issue as a question that I'm not sure where to pose. How does the distance thing work? I notice there are trophies for distance traveled geocaching. I even have an Abel Tasman for circumnavigating the world twice but I'm not sure how I earned it. Is it the sum of the distances between...

Re: GCA only map?

Ah-ha, thanks for that. I'd prefer to be able to de-select the GC caches but as a workaround, that'll solve my problem.

Re: GCA only map?

OK, this is probably a silly question, but where did you originally access that map from?

GCA only map?

I'm sure this one has been asked before and I know that I can do it via queries, but is there any way I can set the basic GCA map to only show GCA caches? I'm often looking at a cache page and select the map to see what else is in the area. Sometimes I zoom out or pan around the area. My main intere...

Re: Circumnavigate the planet for dZ trophies

There are new dragonZone trophies available to be claimed! We have four new trophies up for grabs that reward those intrepid explorers who travel great distances in search of geocaches. For every 40,075km you travel between valid dragonZone geocaches, you effectively circumnavigate the world. These...

Re: Archived moveables

Thanks for the reply. The query technique seems the best solution. Interestingly, in many cases, a missing moveable has a previous finder stating "will get out soon". Either that or a whole bunch of people at an event logging finds but no-one ever re-hides it. Unfortunately, much of my caching is sp...

Archived moveables

I'm wondering if there's any way to conduct searches that include archived moveables? In recent times there seems to have been a tendency to quite ruthlessly archive moveables. One DNF seems to be a death sentence for a moveable, regardless of an owner's wish for it to remain active. I've found quit...

GA becoming hard work?

I'm trying to figure out what is happening to my interaction with GCA. Every time I visit the site, I have to log in. Doesn't matter if I check the "remember me" box. I try to reply to a post, suddenly my reply is gone and I have to log in again. I recently actually managed to contribute to a thread...

Re: Trig points

Is it mandatory to archive trigs on private property? I would think the majority of trigs in rural areas are on private property but sometimes it's tricky to tell. I've logged them where I've gone and banged on a farmers door to gain access. The trig itself might not be on private land but if it's l...

Re: Report Site Issues Here

I was wondering if there's any site reason why, every time I leave the forums, I have to log in again? Might be some setting of mine but it doesn't seem to happen anywhere else. I select "Log in automatically" but it doesn't. If I close this tab, then return to it, I'll have to enter user-name and p...
