You can set up notifications of coord changes, just by checking an extra box when you set up notifications of new caches. Obviously the cache owner should not be deleting coord change logs; that is just inconsiderate.

I think using the term inconsiderate crosses the line. I mean, how long does it take to update the coords of the actual listing?? No time at all. I would guess you should be pulling a PQ more frequently.. Cool

Originally I was going to say "boneheaded", would that be better? Wink It doesn't take long to update the coords but I need to know they need updating. When you change the coords of a cache, that event is logged for a reason. Why delete it? Unless you did it 6 times, I guess you'd want to delete the logs then, but...?

7 times in 6 minutes? Hmm....

Oh, he probably did it in 7 steps to work around the .1 mile limit on coord changes, and then deleted the mess that created. Makes sense. Hopefully next time he'll just contact Surfer Joe.

I am guessing that is why it was done, but then why not leave the very last change? Now that I have the updated coord notification set I should be good, but I guess that isn't any help to non premium members??
