Thank you for once again changing the reporting of travel bug stats. YES, the new method makes MUCH more sense, but it's a couple years late. But hey, I shouldn't mind. Now I get to chase after my 500th travel bug for a THIRD time.

Cool .... Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

What? Guess I will have to go check this out. I thought some stuff looked different the other day, but since I can't get into the system (still down) I will have to wait to look.

KB,

What's up. Just checked my stats and I can't see any difference. Same count I've had for a couple of months now.

coins are not listed/counted as travel bugs.

previously, if you clicked on Jeep, or GeoCoin in your profile, a combined list would appear: travel bugs, jeeps, coins

Now they're separated, as they ALWAYS should have been, so coins and jeeps are NOT travel bugs now ...

unless I'm wrong.

Got it. Guess I never really thought about it that way, particularly, since the coins and jeeps have always shown up as different icons.

I think you're wrong. I noticed this behavior a few weeks back and thought it was great. It's makes it easier to find things.

However, if you click the travel bug link at the top of your account page, then click the "have found" link at the top right above the calendar, you'll get a combined listing of TBs, coins, and jeeps, and that page will provice the total of all three.

that total includes *notes* like the link above, and those are not *finds*

KB,

I have to agree with Rubbertoes. When I go to the travel bug page and then go to the upper right corner and click on the have found link it provides me with a list of all travel bugs, coins and jeeps I have found to date. There are no notes on the page only links to each TB. What's interesting is that the total TBs listed there is higher then on the stats page. I guess if a TB is retired it comes off your stats page. I don't know.
