Wow – there are some interesting new features coming with todays gc.com Update:
- 13764: Quick “like it” for geocaches – Added Facebook “Like” functionality to cache pages
- 13725: Mark trackables as collectible – Added ability to virtually “collect” trackables
- 16673: Localize – Cache Details Page – Added translations for Deutsch, Français, Português, Čeština, Svenska – this is a work in progress
- 13180: Modify cache archive notification for trackables – Discontinued the posting of a note to the trackable page when a cache containing it is archived, sending email notification to trackable owner now instead
- 16352: Setting Trackable item to unknown posting a note instead of the correct log – Marking a trackable as “missing” will now post the correct drop type log instead of a note
and… not earth shattering but pretty cool 🙂
- 15925: Helpful Links Addition – Added tb-rescue.com to the User Generated Tools list at /links
Lets see how much adjustemnts we have to make tomorrow to tb-rescue.com.
- 16144: Change Trackable type to “it” on log pages – Trackables detail page more readable when referring to “it” instead of the trackable name
Current Status (19th April 22:00 CET):
We have fixed the issues. All runs should be up to date.
One exception: There is a bug on gc.com: the very last entry of a TB does not show the mileage. This last entry of each TB is currently not considered by tb-run.com. Groundspeak is already working on providing a hotfix to their site.
In case you still see issues please leave a comment and also mention the concerned TB with its TB ID (TBxxxxx).
Groundspeak is planning maintenance on Wednesday 2/24/2010 from 4 AM – 8 PM GMT in order to update database systems.
During this time geocaching.com will not be accessible.
We will have the following restrictions during the downtime period:
- It will not be possible to join a race on tb-run.com.
- It will not be possible to submit new rescue requests on tb-rescue.com
- It will not be possible to register new users on tb-rescue.com/tb-run.com.
sorry.. this article will be translated soon
Sorry, this post was written before we decided to have tb-rescue.com and tb-run.com in english.
However, here is a summary of the post:
The most popular german Postcast “Dosenfischer” did a Voting. Nominated for the best Geocaching Webtool of the year were tb-rescue.com, tb-run.com, Google Wave, iphonecaching aand Cacheye.org.
tb-rescue.com became #1. tb-run.com became #4.
We are so proud!!!
