Re: Logging onto Geocaching.com

I was having issues logging caches yesterday. I'd fill in the log and when I pushed submit I'd get a server error. If I went back to cache page, then into the logging page, pasted in my text and it worked. Happened on half a dozen caches, then it seemed to come good.

Re: Can 2 geocachers each log the same find together?

Searching as a team is usually faster and fun. Of course both (all) finders need to sign the log.

Thanks!
There are no stupid questions. However I have been known to have quite a few stupid answers.

Re: Groundspeak "listing-service exclusivity on Mega-Events"

I light of my interpretation above, I propose the following in place of my original proposal. We would leave the Mega-Event listings in place as standard lists of events and dashboards. We would let the event organisers to use the forums as they do now (subject to not using the forum to name or lin...

I think the rules are clear. Groundspeak (GC.com) do what ever they like on their site. They are the final arbiter. End of discussion.

In fairness, GCA are the same at the GCA site.

Re: Groundspeak "listing-service exclusivity on Mega-Events"

I didn't want to do a rebuttal as it won't help things, but I feel I have to: 1st. The company that runs the MadCacher blog has recently acquired NaviCache. So there are three "profit" based listing sites. That we're aware of anyway. http://www.madcacher.com/new/navicache-com-acquisition/ Navicache...

Re: Groundspeak "listing-service exclusivity on Mega-Events"

It should be said that Opencaching.com whilst owned by a commercial company does NOT charge for any of it's services and is therefore not a financial competitor to groundspeak on ANY level, this new ruling from them locks out ALL community based listing sites from being mentioned in anything signif...

Re: Making non-live geocaches for a sporting day

GSAK will do that. Just manually create them in GSAK. You can print them out and they'll look similar to GC or GCA. They can even be printed out with the Google map.

You can use GSAK for free for a reasonable period.

And of course you can load your GPS from GSAK too.

Re: Date Range Tool Request

Works a treat. =D> \:D/ =D>

I've optimised my pocket queries from 16 to 7. Obviously I've reduced the area I'm watching in the process, dropped a lot of area I've not got round to visiting any way and freed up query slots that can be used at the last minute if I do get to go. :mrgreen:

Re: Date Range Tool Request

I guess I'd really like to set up the query in the query page, with all of the filters that are already there. Then as output, a report that shows date ranges needed be able to return the result in blocks of 500 or 1000. In line with PQ limitations.

As for time frame, when it suits you.

Cheers..

Date Range Tool Request

For a long time now I've populated Gsak by running a collection of queries that pick up all the caches in a date window within a radius of 300km of "Southbank". I used this method rather than looking at the state as I wanted to ensure I picked up caches over the border. To be effective this now need...
