The graph of Queensland finds by month is empty.



It is working for other states.

Works for me.
Could be a caching issue somewhere in the big ugly world.

Is it just me? Or did the whole forum just go spotty?

Sorry this is so tiny, iPads, they are uncooperative some times, I personally can't believe I got it to put one up at all

On the Plots section - would it be possible to add a category of Finds without Moveables option? My plots for Finds for places like Tasmania show a lot of dots where I haven't been, presumably as moveables have moved there.

I understand it would probably be a big server load (and some coding work) to go through the logs and plot where I originally found them instead, but I can't think of any moveables I have found where I haven't found a normal cache nearby, so adding a filter that excluded that cache type might be a fairly easy to implement solution to show where I have cached.

OK, two new plots.
Finds Excluding Moveable
Hides Excluding Moveable

We can't tell where you found the cache, only where you rehid it.

Not sure if this is an issue or not - and if it is an issue it's an extremely minor one. It's niggled at me for years but finally got bored enough to ask.

GCA - Most consecutive days without a find 40 (27-Nov-07 - 06-Jan-08)

GC - Longest Slump 39 consecutive days without a find from 28/Nov/2007 to 06/Jan/2008

Last find was on 27/11/2007 and the next find was 06/01/2008. Counting the days in between these two dates gets me 39.

The descriptions appear to say the same thing?

Many thanks and very quick =D> =D> =D>

My Tasmania finds plot now looks much less impressive, but is much more a reflection of reality. Obviously a holiday is required to fix this.

The GCA calculation is incorrect.
Both display the "wrong" end date (as that's the next day you made a find, not the end of the "drought", so to speak).
However, I'm not going to change that as it's just another point of query.

Was:
40 (27th November 2007 - 6th January 2008)

Is now:
39 (28th November 2007 - 6th January 2008)

At the very least they are both now consistent.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

I was just looking at my stats and noticed that GC3JERR Hollow Victory32 is showing as a D5 in my stats but this got changed do a D2 after it was loaded into GCA as most finders did not have any trouble finding it.

Will your normal feed update this or will it have to be done manually.

I did try a GPX import myself but it still shows as D5 so I assume 'my import' does not change a cache after it is already loaded into GCA.

Only the faerie feed changes a cache difficulty.
I'll fix it in the meantime.
