Groundspeak has changed something with the new geocache published.
Some new ones are not being sent out through the email system.
I have seen this with one of mine, where it got published and I did not get the notice. Also I have seen other new ones pop up on the map.
Those did not go out as new cache published noticed.
Here is one in East Bethel,
GC6PZXN Traditional Geocache Four Seasons.

GC6MGN0 Traditional Geocache Alpha Beta Parking Lot .

GC6P741 Traditional Geocache Industrial Disease #2.
These are just a few, I am sure there are many more.
My distance is set to 35 mile radius, so I should have gotten these
notices. There is a thread on the groundspeak forums about this.
So when you get a notice go look at the map. You may find more that you did not get told about.

Four seasons was published the same day as

GC6PY7W Traditional Geocache Carroll Broadbent Memorial Park.
I learned of Four Seasons when I looked at the map.
That is also how I learned that Everybody loves to fool Tom was published.
Date 3/18/2016 so this problem has been going on for quite some time,
It is now happening more frequently.

This may or may not be related. I have not received any of the special "premium member" notices for this summer's August Souvenirs.

The announcement for this event proclaimed that standard members would receive the criteria for each souvenir at the stroke of midnight that same day, but premium members would receive a coded message a week earlier. I did enter a problem ticket with Groundspeak, and the reply to my ticket included a link to the special Mission GC page.

I submitted two new caches for review today, and only one was published. The other is still listed as "to be reviewed". I did receive a standard notice when it was published. So, unless that first issue us related, I can't weigh in in support of your concern, I'm afraid.

The August problem is related to the new cache notices.
Some glitch in groundspeaks system is reaking havoc
all over. Many people are not getting the August puzzles
to seek the souvenirs. No body knows what the problem is.
Groundspeak needs to solve that puzzle themselves.

"back in the day" when I started caching, you had to just log in and check for new caches - no notifications! Though I suspect the most successful FTF hounds wrote their own code to get alerts! Definitely easier to get a FTF than it is now.

The third Mission GC message got sent out. It was sent to my junk file in gmail, so I had to dig it out.

When I started this thread it was intended to alert all the FTF hounds
to the problem. The vast majority of the time I go look at the map.
Then load up what I want and go. But FTF chase is a bit fun Cool
