Re: What Three Words

... then you could be anywhere up to 7m off the "expected" co-ordinates. That's a decent chunk of space to search. Based on the number of newbies that expect a cache to be at exactly zero, maybe 7m is a bit too far. I think you can drill down to a 3m x 3m area – just need an extra char at the end. ...

Re: Any opposition to geo-name changes

Everyone plays their own way. Play your own game and don't worry about what others think. Keep your name. It means something to you and it doesn't matter if anyone want's to read something into it.

Re: Another airchair cacher

It's interesting that the same cacher has logged finds on almost all his own locationless caches, too.

Re: How to change username and password

G'day faeries, I received the below by direct message from a well known geocacher. Is there any chance a Faerie can assist Kay to get access to her account? https://geocaching.com.au/cacher/o.kay I can supply an email address if required. G’day mate, I’m writing on behalf of my friend Kay who cannot...

Re: Unarchiving movables?

I think it relies on the cache owner to post an "unarchived" log.
I'm sure the site admins can also unarchive a cache but the volunteer admins do not have that access.

Re: Stopping GCA Alerts

It will be interesting to see what C@W's logging shows up. I, too, have had multiple alerts for the same new locationless caches over recent months -all from the same CO. Is it possible the CO is publishing it more than once, or there's a problem with their device (I know the CO uses and ipad)??

Re: Reverse Geocache Idea

General concept is good -something new but not too complex. First option, as No_Tomorrow said, may result in broken boxes. Second option with the alternative of the third option are better choices. There are a number of caches on that other server that are based around using alternative technology t...

I also tried to claim #7 early(ish) yesterday but the link led to an essentially empty page and the earlier claims had disappeared too.

Re: Report Site Issues Here

Our email has no hyperlinks. They are simply text which your email handler changes into hyperlinks when it makes the decision to. I'm guessing that your email handler has decided "too many links" or something, so stopped converting them. Thanks. I suspected as much and glad it's confirmed. Looks li...

Re: Report Site Issues Here

This morning's Daily Email includes a large number of new caches in the Mildura area. Part way through the list the hyperlinks to GCA and "other site" for all remaining caches in the email have ceased being hyperlinks and have reverted to simple text. (Not that I really care about checking out a few...

Re: Locationless in April 2020

Hi Chasburgs, Locationless caches give you an option other than getting out looking for physical caches. A locationless cache usually requires you to solve a (jigsaw) puzzle or take a photo or perform some other activity then log it as a find. You can find a list of locationless caches by doing a se...

Re: Toolbox suggestions

...if you have a compelling point... No compelling reason. (Well, not enough to make it worth the coding work.) Just working on something and thought 1m would help eliminate potential geotrails. I can work another way around it easily enough. Over shorter distances (such as what I was planning) any...

Re: Toolbox suggestions

Sure. Done. Luv ya work. Thanks. Any chance of an extra decimal place in the distance ie. 1m accuracy rather than the current 10m? Yeah, I know we don't need 1m to find a cache (sadly, some cachers expect a neon sign and 10cm accuracy ](*,) ), but the result could go toward a complex solution where...
