Re: Log dates

It's a bit of a pain for those of us who don't log via an app in the field. Which I very rarely do unless marking a FTF to let people know it is gone. Perhaps it is part of being an old school cacher who likes to write a decent log rather than just TFTC. And at 56 years old with eyesight not as good...

Re: Reverse Geocache Idea

You could also give a third set of co-ordinates. The first set indicates the "area" (like a mystery cache). The 2nd (hidden) provides the distance to get the unlock code. The 3rd would be the geocache which could be nearby and you can only get those co-ordinates when you get the unlock code. I thin...

Re: changing password - data breach?

I find Chrome a bit annoying in that fashion as it flags password breaches on many internal sites at work, like when I type in an IP address to one of our microwave radios which could be 10.xx.xx.xx or 172.xx.xx.xx and it warns me I have compromised passwords. Which are probably because when people ...

Re: Importing lab caches

Given the comments I am happy to leave it. Though for this: As there are no logs in the exported file, they are never going to show up as being found by you at GCA. We use the log and the name to determine your finds. So without logs, this will create a list of geocaches that have no useful log data...

Re: Importing lab caches

I did manage to select it for a single 5 stage lab where there are no other overlapping ones. I am not sure which bit of the code lets GSAK know I have found it, but it seems to work as it correctly highlights the caches I have found as opposed to the ones I haven't (if I do a big query including mu...

Re: Importing lab caches

When I import them into GSAK I see all 5 stages of each lab, coming up with waypoints like LB8TUz-02 (the final number varies depending on the number of the lab stage it appears in). The name imports as "TDF: 02) A mover, a shaker, a wonder woman - oh my!" (without the quotes). The TDF seems to repr...

Importing lab caches

With a new tool available to convert lab caches to GPX files, is there any benefit of adding these at least to my found caches, or importing them in general? Will the naming convention create any problems? It would be nice to have the find total and map plot complete when I look at what I have found...

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 ...

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 :(

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?
