Well, I still haven't explored the new changes to the website, but I do see a major difference in getting PQ's. I've got one PQ set up to grab the 300 closest trads to my house on Tuesday and Friday. Prior to the changes, I was getting the Tuesday one by like 10:30pm, and the Friday one wouldn't show up in my email til mid/late Saturday. Now I'm getting them early morning each day...so I'm thinking they fixed something at least Laughing

Now that you mention it, I've noticed more timely PQs also.

I have noticed PQs are faster as well. Jeremy said that the major reason for the upgrade was to increase system performance. Looks good so far.

I don't know if this was part of the same set of changes or not..

I noticed today that the top of the cache page is really different now, and that they've integrated Yahoo maps quite a bit more. I'm not a big fan of Yahoo maps...

I also notice that it no longer tells you how many people are watching your cache.

I also notice (and it's a bug I'm sure) that the title bar in the browser lists all caches as GCXXX.

I also got a Server Error in /...blah blah today.

Yahoo maps sucks and that's disappointing that they would use their service. I honestly didn't know anyone used anything other than Google until my wife brought something up in Mapquest -- I thought I taught her better.

I don't care what kind of map they show on the cache page but the Yahoo maps are zoomed in too far to be able to tell the general area where the cache is. The Yahoo map links to the new geocaching.com Google maps. But at least they don't use the old school geocaching.com maps anymore.

I see the small Yahoo map to the left of the coordinates, but when I click on "View Map" below the coordinates, I get a google map. Same thing for the larger map below the decryption key. It shows Yahoo on the main page, but when clicked on, I get google.

I'm not liking a lot of the changes. Sad


about the only thing I like so far is the summary of log types at the top of the list.

I like the fact that now when you click on the map show on the cache page it also shows other caches in the area. Not that I'm a fan of Yahoo maps, but glad they show a map on the cache page again.

Today the map by coordinates is about the size of a very small icon (Firefox). Anyone else?

I have firefox and didn't see that issue. It looks like they're still working on it.

Currently they have the cache size icon. One of my caches is set as small but the icon lists it as unknown. I expect that'll be fixed.

It changed again today? This is making me nervous. I hope they test these changes before rolling them out. At least the title bar is fixed.
