from HIDE and SEEK a cache- there used to be a clickable link- if you didn't know the zip for a city you could link to the Postal Zip page and get it- I just discovered it is gone- I would trade that link back on for the new friend choice- or- did they move that clickable link somewhere else?

Yeah -- that was a useful feature.
I'm sure that one will be back... everybody uses it and it will be missed.

I think it is weird that you can't see how many watchers are on your cache. You can see how many people are watching other people's caches, but not your own.... odd.

Geez I didn't notice that - for sure though when I checked. I agree- would like that back on.Just noticed that new map put one of my caches in the middle of a lake so I had to go in and edit and say no boat was needed -I think I'll be checking all my caches for description updatesI think I will email a request to put that zip feature back on.

I can see how many are watching my caches. Sometimes it doesn't show up but I'm assuming it means no one is watching.

In the space where it says search by address, just type in the City and State. all the Caches in a 100 mile radius will appear. It seem geo.com just cut out the middle man.

I can definately see how many are watching my caches.

But... but... but... where is the Make Page Printer-Friendly link?!?

(nevermind... I found the print-friendly link right at the top of the upper map box. Panic has subsided.)
