New Profile Features - Jasmer Challenge and Excluding Caches from Location-Based Stats

As Groundspeak works on migrating statistics over to, we'll still be releasing some new features here on Some of these will eventually be moved to as well!

Our latest additions include a new profile section showing your progress towards the Jasmer Challenge. The Jasmer Challenge asks cachers to find caches that were placed in each month since geocaching began in May 2000. The new grid will help you visualize your progress on this goal. Also, the General Settings section now lets you specify caches that should not count towards your location-based statistics. So if you logged an armchair cache (like Germany's "Four Windows") you can add it here and it won't skew your distance statistics and maps.

As with all new profile sections, you'll need to 1) upload your "My Finds" pocket query to generate the profile images and 2) re-export your HTML code and re-paste it into your profile if you'd like to show off your stats.
