Filtering by Tag: Maintenance
Today was the date of some new updates for those that were interested.
You can see below some of the filter options:
There are plenty of map options. I really like the topo option.
The two shots show some of the difference if you sit down and use the filters that are available.
The upper map is everything on. I then turned off the caches that I had found and that I own... then shut off puzzles and events. That leaves me with a good list of what I can go after, tonight on the way home.
You can also now click on the blue favorites ribbon in a search or on the cache page. It will tell you what percentage of premium members that have found the cache have listed it as a favorite. I would personally like that a sortable column, but this is an improvement.
It does make a bit of a difference The top ten and their %

You can list out your milestones. You can have the website generate them, or you can correct them yourself.
I think this is new. Now when you do a search, or go to someones profile there is an info column. In the past that column mentioned if it had geocoins, or travel bugs in it. Now it will also show the premium member icon, and an Icon for Needs Maintenance. So you will be able to see before you go if it needs maintenance. If I look for one that needs maintenance, I may take a few things (logs, container), or not go at all.
Someone asked me why I was doing a push for maintenance right now. It is pretty simple really. We have Geocoinfest coming up, we don't want to have a ton of empty/lost caches around for them to deal with, and second there is winter coming on. Once October/November hits, there will be no ability to reach some of the caches, and the desire to go out in the cold keeps others from being checked.
The result is bombing you now, rather then in the middle of winter when we can do nothing about them. So expect to be hit with a quick note if you have a cache that is under the weather, or missing for some time. I am trying to sort out the Difficulty 5 caches, so that they don't get flagged. Many times people look for a few minutes and leave and say they looked. That is the purpose of those caches. You may get a note, please respond, or just to a quick check to see if it is still there. People like to know they are looking for something, and that it has not fallen out of the tree and rolled into the storm drain.
