Well-rounded cacher tool and other extras

Did you notice the new Extras link on the menu? Extras is a place for other geocaching tools and features that aren't directly related to your profile. The first tool is meant to help you track your progress on different well-rounded cacher challenges. It allows you to customize a "Well-Rounded Cacher" challenge and then generate an image showing your progress. There are many "Well-Rounded Cacher" challenges each with their own specifications. For example, see GC15NNY and GC16QQZ. If you are working on one of these challenges, you can customize this page for the specific requirements and then upload your pocket query file from the My Account page to update the image of your progress. Include the image in your profile by copying the provided HTML to your profile. Or copy and send a link of the image to the cache owner to show them your progress! If you're working on a well-rounded cacher challenge that has a requirement that we haven't accounted for, let us know and we'll see if we can add it.
