Re: Report Site Issues Here

The dates for most GC events are out by one day on GCA. Not exactly sure why this is, but possibly because Groundspeak are now including the event start time in the GPX file (in the <time> tag) whereas previously this was set to 00:00:00

Re: Report Site Issues Here

I was pushing it to 5-10 thousand (with Chrome on an older machine) before I had problems which is probably ok for most users. Just interesting to note these changes happened without a senate discussion. At first I thought it was a mistake.

Re: Report Site Issues Here

There seems to be an issue with the Google Maps pages. When reloading caches (after the map is moved), the javascript for deleting the old caches from the map has been commented out for some reason. (lines 604-642 of gmap.php) This eventually leads to the browser crashing due to lack of memory.

Re: Stats - Graph of most puzzle cache hides

Yes, he is a member, he logged one of my GCA caches a few months back. I don't think he has any hides on GCA though.

Stats - Graph of most puzzle cache hides

I was talking to Bob from elsewhere today and he mentioned that he might have more puzzle cache hides than anyone else in Australia. So I went to look it up but couldn't find the graph of "Cachers by most puzzle cache hides" - do we have that, and if so where is it?

Re: Report Site Issues Here

Was discussing unloved caches with Freddo and apparently this page runs out of memory for people with 30,000 finds: https://geocaching.com.au/cacher/statistics/Freddo/unloved/ I works for me with 11,000 finds. Thanks for the report. The memory has been increased. The page will take up to 2 minutes ...

Re: Seems like it's time to throw away your maintenance kit

Remember that Groundspeak is an American company with American rules. Why should they care about Australian rules? We only make up a small percentage of their user-base. And most of us keeping paying them anyway, irrelevant of what caches they decide they are going to archive...

Re: Senate - Calls for nominations 2018 / 2019

I'm happy to go again unless someone else wants to have a go. I acknowledge that I haven't been the most active one on the team but I try to help where I can.

For those that didn't already know, I live in SA and have been caching for about 9 years. And have been a GCA senator for 2 (or 3?) years now.

Re: Report Site Issues Here

It seems like any point that has a non-zero minutes in the east coord causes the error, for example: A simple case where the answer should be S33 00.000 E138 01.000 Point 1: S34 00.000 E138 01.000 with a bearing of 0 or 360 Point 2: S33 00.000 E139 00.000 with a bearing of 270 Instead it gives this ...
