Minor Updates - Attributes and Custom Titles

A couple minor updates to the mygeocachingprofile.com website:
  • The attributes profile section now includes both "Cacti Present" and "Lost and Found Tour" attributes, however these attributes won't be included in the calculations to determine what level Attribute GeoAchievement badge you earn.  The cactus attribute is no longer present in the geocaching.com system, but it is still included in several older caches.  The Lost and Found Tour attribute is very rare and is only connected to archived 10 year event celebrations.
  • The "My Fizzy (Well Rounded Cacher) Challenge," "Alphanumeric Cacher Challenge," and "Alphanumeric Cache Name Challenge" now allow you to enter longer names when you are customizing a challenge from the Extras page.

What Day Did You Cache in the Most Countries or US States?

The "Most Well Rounded Day" section already shows which days you found the largest variety of cache types, container types, and difficulty/terrain combinations.  It now also shows which days you cached in the most countries and US states.  Are you especially proud of a one-day cross Europe caching streak?  Or, maybe you hopped in the car and drove cross-country on an epic caching run.  Show off these special days in your profile!

As with all new profile sections, if you'd like the section to appear on your geocaching.com profile, remember to upload your My Finds PQ to generate the latest stats and then do a one time copy/paste of all your profile HTML from the "Preview and Export Profile" page over to your geocaching.com "Bio" profile settings.

And, please Contact Us with any questions, problems, or suggestions.  We answer every email and Facebook post!

OK, admittedly not the most impressive well rounded country day...I'll work on it :)

New Profile Section - Cache Attributes!

Mygeocachingprofile.com has a brand new profile section - Cache Attributes!  The new section shows how many attributes you've found such as caches with "Dangerous Animals Present," "Scenic Views," or "Scuba Gear Required!"

One important note:  In order for attribute information to be included in your My Finds pocket query, you'll need to make sure your GPX Version is set to 1.0.1 on the geocaching.com preferences page.  After making this change, you'll need to download a new My Finds pocket query and your pocket queries will contain attribute data from that point on.

As with all new profile sections, if you'd like the section to appear on your geocaching.com profile, remember to upload your My Finds PQ to generate the latest stats and then do a one time copy/paste of all your profile HTML from the "Preview and Export Profile" page over to your geocaching.com "Bio" profile settings.

As always, please Contact Us with any questions, problems, or suggestions!

Changes to Milestones and Cacher Rankings / Some New Chronology Stats!

A few updates have been made to three different sections of the website.  First, the Milestones section now properly takes your lab cache finds into consideration when determining the order of your finds.  As a reminder, lab caches aren't included in the geocaching.com "My Finds" pocket query, so you have to manually list your lab caches and the dates you found them in the Additional Caching Information section of the Build My Profile page.  Also, if you manually tell the Milestone section to count a specific cache as one of your milestones, it will now offset the rest of the milestones from that manually entered cache.  That way you can manually correct one milestone and the rest should carry on properly from that point.

The Cacher Rankings page has also been expanded to include rankings by the number of cache type finds.  For example, you can see the top finders of just virtual caches or event caches.  As a reminder, the Cacher Rankings page only ranks mygeocachingprofile.com users who have uploaded their My Finds pocket queries within the last year.

And finally, a new set of statistics has been added to the My Caching Chronology section.  You can now see how long it took you to get your fastest 100, 500, and 1000 caches.

As always, please Contact Us with any questions, problems, or suggestions!  Thanks!
