OK. I don't get it. Why can you only setup notifications by type (trad, multi, mystery,etc). I just don't understand. I can see making that optional, or letting you select several (like on a PQ) but why only one type for a notification.

Rant over.

You can have every type set up, just that you have to do them individually.

Right, I currently have 14 notifications setup so I can be notified when caches are published and archived. And that's just for one zip code!

Groundspeak has no clue (or interest) in how people actually use their website.

I am not sure I agree with this statement. I think they do know. They're too busy coding souvenirs and challenges to worry about a notification system.

I'm pretty sure that was sarcasm. But I agree that it seems like they spend more time adding new features no one cares about than improving existing features that could easily be made better.

When I look at the 'newest caches' list, I would really, really like to see the distance from my home. I would think that would be relatively simple to accomplish.

That explains it perfectly! You should post it on Facebook and tag Jeremy Irish.

That's crazy stuff. I have no idea what you're talking about.

The new maps are AWESOME. More than 50% of the tiles display properly on the satellite view, and I even had the tile with the cache I was looking for display once.

The iPhone app can display ten caches in LESS THAN 3 MINUTES! Just think how long it would take to print out ten cache pages on paper.

And we said we wanted virtuals brought back, and there you go. Virtuals were brought back. That's responsive!
