If you just repeat the same word 8,000 times that would not be in the spirit of the game.

Okay, thanks I understand now - the word "average" makes a lot of difference
Cheers and thanks OldSaint.

I got a surprise yesterday to see I'd earned a new dZ trophy:

Abel Tasman
Awarded: Fri-01-Sep-17
Circumnavigate the Earth twice.

The last GCA cache we logged was on the 20th August, and was a moveable not far from our home location.

I am wondering if it's normal for the trophy to take so long to show up, or is something else going on? With less than 500 GCA finds, I'm surprised we'd have travelled around the Earth twice!

DZ trophies are not automatically awarded when you earn them only when you visit the http://geocaching.com.au/my/dragonzonetrophies/ web page.

A bit like the daily bonus DZ points will only be given when you visit the http://geocaching.com.au/my/dragonzone/ web page once on any day.

Hi,
I seem to have been awarded a trophy by mistake. I have only just logged my second GCA cache but have been awarded the finding centroid trophy - correct me if I'm wrong but this is for clearing a 100km box around your home? Living in Sydney, I doubt I will ever achieve this! I think this happened because my home location was not entered and defaulted to 0,0. I have since entered correct coords for home but the trophy has not disappeared.

Is there a problem with notifications? I just notice a new gadget cache was on the Australian front page 252 klm away from me (a bit far tonight for a ftf) but I didn't get notified. My distance set is 300 klm for an alert. Also I am not getting found emails on my virtual caches this weekend.

Hi sirius Tas,

This is just a cut paste to the reply we posted to your post in the 'Trophy Record Attempt' topic...

Your trophy will be awarded, we just need to explain the following:

Unlike other Limited Trophy events, this one was a manual process that took some time to load. This was because not everyone who attended / logged into the attempt were dZ members, so we couldn't just go with a carte blanche approach to awarding the trophy. We had to check each person to determine who were actual dZ members. Your trophy will be available shortly. Please check / refresh your 'My Trophy' every morning or evening for the next day or two.

Not sure if it's a bug or a mysterious technology thingy... I found Geo-Jas's reverse cache (GA6859) back in January @ C@W Docklands Cache Chase Event but the trophy (first reverse cache find) hasn't been awarded. Log = http://geocaching.com.au/log/15084492

It's listed as a mystery not a reverse.

Would like some clarification on how Karma pts are given, as I've noticed that pts given are not consistent.
Are karma pts reduced for subsequent finds on the same cache?????
As mine certainly have.e.g. pts awarded were originally 3 pts...then later finds were only 2 or 1 on the exact same cache.

Not so much an issue as a question that I'm not sure where to pose. How does the distance thing work? I notice there are trophies for distance traveled geocaching. I even have an Abel Tasman for circumnavigating the world twice but I'm not sure how I earned it. Is it the sum of the distances between successive finds or some more complex calculation?
