Re: Beginner help near Parkerville please.

Some people have volunteered to be geocaching gurus and help newcomers. Of course some of them may have volunteered a while ago and forgotten, but you can search for gurus here... https://geocaching.com.au/search/gurus/ Also if your state is allowing events at the moment head along to one of those a...

Re: Researh orbs

Well I did claim 6. But I am not sure how to see what I got. If I go to https://geocaching.com.au/my/dragonzone/research/orb/ it doesn't show anything at all, not that I can see any dropdown option to get to that page. If I click on the help icon on that page I get taken to the DragonZone page on th...

Re: Researh orbs

So what did they achieve (or would have if I had completed all 7)? Also I am not sure how I should have known about them without the n0w0rries caches as they weren't mentioned in the daily update emails I get every morning at 5am. Cheers!

Researh orbs

Hmmm, I have been happily collecting orbs all week (and also n0w0rries various locationless for them today) and was due for number 7 today. But when I go to https://geocaching.com.au/my/dragonzone/research/orb/springequinox today then no orbs show up. I see others have been claiming the final n0w0rr...

Re: List of my owned caches

While I have been doing the jigsaws and a few others during this time, despite finding some real ones lately - I don't mind some of the locationless like one I logged yesterday for Tourist Information Centres. At least you have to discover something physical to log it. But I will keep doing jigsaws ...

Re: Report Site Issues Here

Thanks - I thought I was exporting 1.0 but will check next time to make sure I haven't accidentally ticked the wrong box. Things usually work :(

Re: Report Site Issues Here

Interesting, if I look at my GPX file I uploaded (generated from GSAK as version 1.0) for that cache it shows me <type>Geocache|Lost and Found Event Caches</type> <groundspeak:type>Lost and Found Event Caches</groundspeak:type> The first few lines showing the version are <?xml version="1.0" encoding...

Re: Report Site Issues Here

I was doing my weekly import of NSW logs to help keep things up to date and got this error message:

Unknown cache type, set to Traditional: GC8HJC6 'Lost and Found Event Caches'. Please advise a site administrator.

It was a Community Celebration event, so maybe it is a cache type we don't recognise?

Re: 2020 Game of Games

Hmmm, not good. I would probably mention it to DFAT as well.

Similarly a few years ago I had an expensive camera lens being delivered to work that was supposed to be signed for. I found it in the open letterbox at the front of the driveway.

Re: 2020 Game of Games

I haven't had too many delays on domestic things, 2 days from Adelaide to Sydney last week for a small-medium box. Though I am still waiting for something small I ordered from China off eBay in late March to show up. Then again in the past I have had letters regularly take over a week to get to me f...

Got my badge today as well, thanks. Being about 20km north of tronador and further from Melbourne it must take longer :P

Re: Queries by "Sort by Closest to"

OK, that's a bit strange. When I ran it the other night I was getting things at all sorts of distances, but now it seems to be working. That's a mystery then. I had tried reducing it to as low as 70km and was still getting >500 results. Computers are so much fun!

Queries by "Sort by Closest to"

I just tried updating a query, to give me caches in an area I will be visiting next week. There is a trig I want to target a bit south of where I will be staying for the start letter, but setting the trigpoint as the centre of the search area didn't work. I set Sort by Closest to on the query as TP7...

Re: My GCA emails are going to junk mail

It's not too hard, if you create a gmail account (I have a throwaway one for things I need to confirm that might spam me) you can set it up to forward emails to another address. Click on the settings wheel on the top right, and then there is an option for Forwarding, which you can put the email you ...
