Another airchair cacher

So I just got a log on a GCA history cache hidden in northern Sydney from someone based in Perth, who hasn't logged anything since July 30 (and south of Adelaide) on the other site. I suspect the answers may have been googled/guessed until they got the right answer. And with 22000 finds I suspect we...

Re: Report Site Issues Here

Is it possible to disable published logs on caches that are already published? I notice Cybergran V tends to publish multiple times which she blames on her iPad coming in and out of range? So if a cache is already published there is no new notification when it gets published a second time? Not that ...

Re: Newbie Q: Do I need anything other than mobile (Android)?

I believe a lot of people use c:geo on Android, though being an iPhone owner I can't comment on it. I don't know whether it just supports the main Groundspeak site or this one as well.

Re: Future Games

I find it difficult to participate in games, given I have few unfound GA caches within easy reach of home or Coffs Harbour where I will probably visit over the Battleship game period. I suppose I could drive to the upper Blue Mountains (about 2 hours away) if rogerw3 still has a lot up there. But th...

Re: Site Down morning of 14/5/21?

It was mentioned in the facebook group that others couldn't get on, but no explanation I saw. At least it came back up (thanks faeries) so I could keep my streak going :D

Re: Gca on iPhone

There is an app, Geocube. I admit I find it not completely intuitive though and have never got it to talk properly to the website in the field. I have to download the PQs first. Which means planning.

Re: Stopping GCA Alerts

Aha - I had looked for duplicate publish logs but if they had been deleted that explains why I couldn't see them :)

Re: Stopping GCA Alerts

Thanks. It's no biggie but I have seen it in the past. I will keep an eye out, partly curious if the extra alerts were going to everyone or just me (in which case there was a slight chance it could have been some weirdness between Thunderbird and gmail though I didn't expect that to be the case).

Re: Stopping GCA Alerts

I am curious as to why I sometimes get multiple published alerts for the 1 locationless. This one for example: GCA Alert: Published: (GA20997) Golden-Backed Rabbit-Rat I have received alerts for it 3 times today, timestamped 8:45am, 9:15am and now 2:10pm. And Cybergran V doesn't seem to have pressed...

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...
