New Cache Types

Groundspeak has added a couple of new one-off cache types to the game - The Groundspeak HQ cache type is reserved for GCK25B located at none other than...the Groundspeak Headquarters in Seattle, Washington! The new Lost and Found Event cache type is being used for the Lost & Found Celebration (GC24GYW) hosted by Groundspeak. These new cache types have been added to the main profile section. They also appear as options in the Well-Rounded Cacher section. You'll see them in your profile the next time you upload your "My Finds" PQ and refresh your stats.

A Number of Small Upgrades

We've made a number of small upgrades to the site that should address some lingering issues.

1) The My Profile page now has a timezone setting. Select your timezone and then re-upload your "My Finds" PQ. The timezone will be factored into your cache find dates which can help fix some issues with GeoStreaks and other chronology stats.

2) The US Counties Map has a new look. After the next upload, refresh your My Profile page and you should see the new larger map.

3) The pocket query analysis now runs much faster, especially when chugging away at the US County maps.

4) Finally, we've addressed some issues with our hosting site that sometimes caused your upload/analysis to randomly fail half-way through. Expect a more stable experience!
