Re: Report Site Issues Here

Wondering if anyone can give some advice as to how to deal with log in problems on the GCA site? I have not been able to log in for at least the last six months. It simply ignores log in attempts. If I put in an incorrect password, it tells me it's incorrect but for a correct password, it takes me ...

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...
