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!

New Statistics in Chronology Section

A number of new statistics and graphs have been added to the My Caching Chronology profile section.  You can now see the total number of days you've actually cached since you became a geocacher, your biggest geofrenzy in one weekend, week, month, and year, a bar graph comparing your cache finds each day of the week, and a calendar comparing your cache finds on each month of the year.

If you'd like the new day of the week bar graph or month of the year calendar to appear on your geocaching.com profile, remember to check the "Include Section" box next to the graph on the "Build My Profile" page, 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 profile.

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

New Traveling Caches Profile Section

A new Traveling Caches list has been added under the My Memorable Finds profile section. Traveling caches change location periodically so each cacher may have found the cache in a different location.  Unfortunately the My Finds PQ only shows the traveling cache's latest location, not the location where you found it. Therefore, mygeocachingprofile.com can't know where you specifically found the cache and traveling caches can't be counted toward maps and other location-specific statistics.

However, now fans of these moving caches can show off how many they've found by including the Traveling Caches list in their profile.  This section is turned off by default, but if you'd like it to appear in your profile, check the "Include Traveling Caches Section in Profile" box on the "Build My Profile" page under the My Memorable Finds heading.  Then, upload your My Finds PQ to generate the latest stats, and do a one time copy/paste of all your profile HTML from the "Preview and Export Profile" page over to your geocaching.com profile.

We rely on the community to keep an updated list of traveling caches, so please Contact Us if you know of any that are not on our public list:  My Geocaching Profile.com - Moving/Traveling Caches List

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

All the Remaining US State County Maps Have Been Added!

The remaining 26 state county maps have been added to the site!  All 50 state county maps are now available.  Like the previous maps, these new profile sections use the 2010 US Census Bureau's information for county boundaries.  If you notice any problems where a cache is being marked as belonging to the wrong county, please Contact Us with the cache name and the county it should appear in and we can fix it in our system.


Also, if you'd like any of these new maps to appear on your geocaching.com profile, remember to check the "Include Map" box next to the map on the "Build My Profile" page, 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 profile.
