Geocaching.com recently announced four new attributes - Challenge Caches, Power Trails, Bonus Caches, and Geocaching.com Solution Checker Caches (https://www.geocaching.com/blog/?p=79169) These four attributes are now included on the mygeocachingprofile.com "Cache Attributes I've Found" section. They are also added to the requirements for the Attributes GeoAchievement badge.
Download your latest My Finds PQ from geocaching.com and upload it to mygeocachingprofile.com to refresh your stats and see your totals for these new attributes. Remember, it may take some time for older caches to be updated with the relevant attributes. For example, cache owners will need to update their power trail caches to include the new attribute before you'll get credit for the attribute.
As always, if you have any questions, problems, or suggestions email us at email@example.com.

The Florida DeLorme Challenge (GC5702R) references the 4th Edition of the DeLorme map but many cachers have asked for Edition 10 to be added as well. That map is now available on the Customize My Profile > US Map page! As with all new profile sections, you must check the profile section to indicate you want it added to your profile, upload your My Finds PQ to create the map, and then do a fresh copy/paste of your profile HTML code to your geocaching.com profile if you want to display the new map there.
Please let me know if you have any questions or problems with the new map by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you ever have suggestions for the site, email me!

The Jasmer Challenge, Birthday Cache Challenge, and Finds By Placed Date Challenge all now have a summary statement showing how many times you have filled the grid and how many more finds or months you'll need to fill it again. This should help you Challenge cachers plan ahead for your next finds!
Also, the Finds By Placed Date Challenge has been updated to show a vertical grid with months along the top horizontally and days of the month along the side vertically. This allows more space to clearly see your stats. The previous horizontal grid is also still available if you prefer to show that version in your profile!
Please let me know if you have any questions or problems with the new features by emailing me at email@example.com. Also, if you ever have suggestions for the site, email me!
