Ha! Interesting, I'm in the Top 100. Hate to tell you though GIN51E, my obsession factor is below 20 per cent, so I'm less geek than you. Although I might get extra points for doing a podcast about it.

The newsletter adds about 15% and the pod cast adds probably 40% :D

As long as you know where you stand, who cares? Must admit I did go out to Ninnes Well hoping to see a piggy stamp somewhere but left dissapointed. I remember seeing one under the lid of Mr Burns Powerplant. Ooops! sorry for getting off topic! :?

Sadly the Piggy stamp did a hiding act under one of the Pig-mobile seats for a few months, it reappeared the other day on a sudden harsh braking session! :D

Ninnes well, hmm, Yes that was about a month ago? maybe 2, With TGC in tow. Sadly only a pen log.. Maybe a Piggy face if you were lucky!Mr Burns, Crikey that would have been a while ago, did I log it ?? Who knows.

I just don't bother logging, Not about the points to me.

It's funny sometimes though when I forget a cache name and there has been a couple of almost double visits!

Then how about out of respect for the cache owner?

We agree - we have over 300 finds.
But this is not an Aussie site so they probably are not aware of GCA. :shock:

More up to date than the actual poll at the start of this thread:

(C@W, there seems to have been a big increase in members all of a sudden! Wasn't that many cachers last time I looked at the graph.)

Those of you that pretend GCA caches don't exist, please disregard the rest of this post.


And the current Leaderboard:
(Give or take. Not up to the minute on GC finds but does take all into account.)

Actually get the right numbers of cachers is a harder task that you can possibly imagine.

Is a cacher someone who has found a cache in Australia? (ie. loads of visitors).

Is a cacher someone who has found a PHYSICAL cache in Australia (ie. exclude locationless caches).

Is a cacher someone who has NEVER found a cache in Australia but who has worked out that they can load their "my finds" up to GCA and use all the cool functions and graphs and stats that aren't supplied on other sites?

Is a cacher someone who has never found a cache in Australia, doesn't know about the site, but somehow gets a log in GCA (supplied from elsewhere), because a genuine Aussie visited the UK and then loaded their GPX files containing all of the logs (including non-Aussie) that they found while they were away?

You see my dilema. I'm afraid it's as neat as I can reasonably get it.

is there actually many international cachers which use these stats? if so would it be possible to make a code so it will block a cacher out unless more than 50% of their finds are within Australia/New Zealand?

I figured a few pq uploads were behind the spike in numbers.
If the numbers there are including the last 5 logs of uploaded overseas cache finds I can understand the difficulty!
For the sake of just the cacher graphs, are you able to filter for people who have found at least one cache in Aust/NZ?

Pretty flattering when users of other cache listing sites are making use of features here not offered elsewhere. You'll be pinup boy for Geocaching statistic fans worldwide C@W.
:lol:
Great work!

Yes, its possible but it sorta goes against the "free and open" bit..

But i don't see why there should be any complaints when the site is actually named Geocaching Australia

Ah, but what if you went to the USA and did 500 in a one week holiday? You can still be Australia. And what about Slider & Smurf?
