Re: GeGnome ][ Electric Boogaloo

I couldn't see mine on the leader board, checked my listing and it was a trad instead of movable. What now ?

I changed it to a movable, still not showing.

Re: Is it just me?

Would you prefer that we didn't have names just GC codes? Then I suppose the description would annoy someone and we would have to manage that. No just GC codes would be a silly idea. However having names that when truncated to 10 characters can be easy told apart from other nearby caches would be c...

Re: A cunning plan

I see where you are coming from here. It isn't too hard to read on my Montana, but at least put the relevant information at the top of the listing and the history of the spot or other info at the bottom.

Re: A cunning plan

I wish the majority of cachers would not have huge descriptions with plagiarized text that has nothing to do with the geocache and in turn train us to not read the cache description unless we have to.. That my opinion at least. Don't get me started a stolen images with no recognition to the original...

Re: Is it just me?

Yep bugs the pants of me to. It is the shame the only solution is 3rd party tools that have to massage the data. Still no solution of Live data based caching.

Re: "Throwdown" or "angel cache"?

Per arranged with the CO = good (some common sense about doing it on worthwhile cache..)

No prior contact with the CO = bad.

Re: Bingo - The moving cache race for 2012/2013

My montana is not reading the GPX generated from a query at geocaching.com.au/my/query/

Yes the test query had caches. Anyone else had it working with a Montana ?
