You are correct, that is what should be shown.

There is a bug in the way they are calculated for geocachers with a ' in their name which has now been corrected.

I have recreated your Karma (based on what I have available) which will be larger than normal as I am providing the bonus benefits to your Karma which are not normally applied.

You have also received a bonus for identifying the bug.

Your points are now substantially higher (about 20,000 points higher) due to the missing Karma.

Thanks for your report.

Just checked our karma points after reading 2y'stassies post and we also have "no caches found", should we have anything listed there?

Same issue, regrettably. Your Karma has been restored.

Thank you for restoring the karma points, much appreciated. Under the karma tab we now have two of our caches listed, they had finds yesterday. Should all our hides be listed or will they gradually drop in as they have finds?

ga10036 should be showing as being in the Cunderdin LGA/dragonZone as it is in the middle of the Cunderdin townsite but currently shows as Unknown for some reason.
(The other nearby GCA cache is showing as being in Cunderdin OK.)

Is this able to be fixed?

See the dragon zone points for https://geocaching.com.au/cache/ga12490:

Team MavEtJu 07-Jul-2018 27.50
ziggiau 06-Jul-2018 28.00
Team MavEtJu 06-Jul-2018 18.00

Ziggiau logged it as Found but it was transferred into a Write Note later.
Not sure if she later deployed extra points to it.

Expected behaviour: The points for Write Note /extra deployed points should have been removed once the Found was changed into a Write Note.

The recent icon update seems to have caused caches that I've DNFed to disappear from the map/queries. (which some may say is a good thing :lol: )

Query 3485. This cache should be in the query but isn't: GC391E8

They come up for me for my DNFs
That query is 5000 caches and far too big for me to sort through.
What do you see for the marker at that cache point?
Take a screenshot and show me what is there.
Reduce the query and see if that sorts it out.
Do you see the DNF marker at all?
Even on smaller queries?
Help me by minimising the issue to as small a dataset as you can.

This is a limitation. Additionally deployed points will remain even if the log has been deleted because the two actions are not related through the database. This is an infrequent occurrence and is only of marginal impact. I will remove the two sets of points from this geocache.

Query 10066. Should show 3 caches but only shows two. GC391E8 is missing.

The problem appears to be that this file doesn't exist: https://geocaching.com.au/pics/gmapmarker_dnf.png

Also noticed that this file doesn't exist either: https://geocaching.com.au/pics/gmapmark ... ilable.png

Thanks for the assistance. The map marker names are no longer as you have described them, they have a "cache code" in the middle, so you wouldn't find those names. e.g. https://geocaching.com.au/pics/gmapmarker_dnf.png does not exist but https://geocaching.com.au/pics/gmapmarker_t_dnf.png does.

The issue was in the way the query data (specifically for a my query hence the challenge in debugging because the return data is specific to you under your username) was being returned. This has now been addressed.

Again thanks for the report an the patience to explain in detail.

It's integrated with the site...HOWEVER: First letter of your username should be capitalised, rest lowercase. "Mavetju" ...

Although it's not liking me for some reason right now. I'll try to look at it over the weekend.
