Re: Are iPhones bad news for GCA?

I'm always using a phone to find caches, depending on the phone it is usually more then sufficent. If I'm out bush however I'll only have the phone for the cache description etc. I have one of the old yellow Etrex's so it doesn't store info. As for bad news for GCA, probably not. The increase GC.com...

On a side note - has anyone ever logged a locationless as DNF? :lol:

This one seems to have a lot of DNF's (including my own) although it seems some of the recent finders didn't actually read the cache description.

Re: Something going on with ACT cachers?

The adjustment to the feed didn't really do much except now it includes another 8 or 9 caches. If the caches these people have been doing have had more than 5 visits in a 3 or 4 days period then they may not be getting picked up due to how things work. Our feeds are no longer coping with the amount...

Re: Archived GCA caches

Looks like my theory about the archive log is wrong. It seems even some caches with the archive log (GA0013 for example) are still showing up in GSAK as available. Unless there is something different to archiving GCA caches these days I might go ask in the GSAK forums instead.

Archived GCA caches

Playing around with GSAK I've noticed something with some GCA caches that seems weird to me. There are about 50ish caches that are apparently archived on GCA but have absolutely no logs on them. No published logs, no found logs, and no archived logs. For example GA0390. I have a query that pulls eve...

Re: Updating of missing Cache Logs

I seem to be missing cache log information for GC39857. Originally it was logged as a note while I waited for the FTF to occur prior to logging mine. Anyway on GC.com I recently updated it to found. Upon import of my finds into GCA it had said in the list that this cache log was updated to "Found it...

GSAK duplicating GCA logs

Well I don't know whether the problem is GSAK or GCA but it seems the when I look at the logs of a GCA caches that I have PQ'd into GSAK they are nearly always doubled. This isn't really a new thing as I've noticed it a few months back. Has this happened to anyone else or am I just special? If it do...

Re: Australian Power Trails

As the owner of a now archived powertrail it was set up as purely a numbers thing. Well perhaps a bit of mocking at the same time. As far as I'm concerned a power trail has to be numerous caches in close proximity to each other to make for easy gathering. If they are spread out more than say 200-300...

Re: Return of virtuals on GC, well sot of

The question is whether GCA will import these "caches" and how they'd be marked though? And could you do a PQ for them? No, I thought not. Well, how do you "list" them then??? According to the info page there will be but not yet Is this it? Not even close. Some ideas for the next phases include: Hi...

On the plus side people rate stupid ones down pretty quickly. Only took 2 minutes for the first rate down.

I dunno. Based on my now archived powertrail in a can series I can name 20 cachers who don't seem to mind caches in the same position with similar names.
