So I don't have to try and read your mind, can you please explain what the problem seems to be?

100 x Arty FartyHundredth GeoArt find71 to go.


  1,000 x Arty FartyThousandth GeoArt find1000 to go.

Cheers ST
Appears their 29 finds haven't been counted in the 1000x trophy count... or the 100x count thinks they've found 29 and they haven't found any yet.

The 100 is right, so obviously the 1000 geoarty is wrong....should be 971 to go I'd of thought.

Thanks. As I don't know what you have done and what the issue might be, it's always handy to have the problem spelt lout rather than have me trying to work it out and assuming the wrong thing.

I'll look into it.

Just checked my arty farty trophies as well and so far I have found 41 with 59 to go for 100 which is correct. For the 1000 trophy it shows I have only found 12 with 988 to go. Should say 959 to go.

I'm glad I mentioned it then. May well be an issue for everyone?
Suspect I'll never get to a 1000 arty farty but some might.

Like Whitewebbs my Gold Arty Farty Trophy shows the correct number, 59 to go (have found 41) but the Blaze Trophy listing shows 1000 finds to go - should be 959 . Not a great problem but interesting that the problem seems slightly different for each cacher.

I did a query for all GCA Tasmania and I noticed one particular cache GA20250 Lightning Geo Art #9 was not included. I have noticed since it was published that it did not appear on the notification email, the first to find list in Tasmania and still doesn't show in found in the last 7 days under Tasmania. If you click on new caches for the state of Tasmania, it doesn't appear there either. I added it to GSAK by downloading it from Trimbletas' profile where it shows under hides.

Hi WW...may be an issue your end as I received the email notification for all.
Still hasn't been found as coords seem astray for last 3 so gave up...plus one missing in stump.
Found 7 of 11 only.
All unfound show in my GA app.

Thanks, but how does that explain it not being listed on the (list not map) tas link of new caches under the map of Australia on the GCA web page? Also it does not appear on the rotation of new caches on the front page of GCA webstite, it jumps from 8 to 10.

Got no idea. When they first came out I downloaded a gpx unfound file which included all the caches in that series.
GA cacher still displays correctly....so that info must be coming from somewhere different.
Certainly doesn't make sense.

It looks like when the cache was listed there was some issues in gaining the locality information from the external reference site. That left it in a state of TAS (not Tasmania) but not Australia so depending on the query this was picked up or not.

I have clicked the "Update Locality" link on the right hand side of the page and the location is now correct at Turners Beach, Tasmania, Australia.

This link is available to everyone to solve these sorts of issues as we user a 3rd party site for locality reference data based on the location and they aren't always 100% perfect.

Thanks for letting me know though.
