Hi is there anyway to stop the stickers counting towards your DZ Bag?
They take up unnecessary room that could be used for other items.

Also is there a way to trade them back for research materials or a way to remove them from your bag without having to put them on a cache?

You an delete stickers if you don't want them. The bin icon went missing, but is now back and you should see it next to each item you can delete.

The reason we have them as a countable item in your bag is to encourage you to use them else you'll end up with 1,000's. So really the easiest way to lower your count is to stick them on a cache (or delete them :( )

Have we had any amalgamation of dragonZones in NSW? I certainly didn't think so and I couldn't see any changes therefore I'm guessing not, so this may be a problem/bug...

While looking at dZ on Friday 4 Feb and according to my dZ trophy page, I still needed to find one dragonZone in NSW to qualify for the NSW Statesman trophy. However, according to my dragonZone Area Challenge map for NSW, I still needed 5. My own records also show I still needed 5 to qualify for the trophy. The map still currently shows I need 5. These 5 are:

Unincorporated NSW,
Broken Hill,
Central Darling,
Dungog, and
Gloucester.

Then on Saturday 5 Feb I noticed my dZ points balance had increase significantly and upon checking found I had been awarded the NSW Statesman trophy. I haven't been to any of those dZ in the recent past and certainly haven't logged any finds in them. I have found caches in 2 of them - Unincorporated NSW and Broken Hill, however those finds were in April 2013 and before I joined the dZ game.

At this stage I don't believe I qualify for the NSW Statesman trophy, so could a check be done to see if there is a problem/bug.

Moveables.

e.g. https://geocaching.com.au/cache/GA3691
It's in Dungog but you didn't find it in that zone, but it is now there (and archived).

The map likely excludes moveables whereas the Statesman ignores that restriction.

Wow. I thought moveables were not included in any of those types of trophies.

Thanks for the heads up.
