2015-06-15 - BadgeGen - Looped diamond badges
There was a version 3.3.0 beta of BadgeGen published today.
Project-GC has adjusted its implementation to support the new changes.
The only change that actually affects us is that one can now go beyond diamond badges.
To quote Kyle, the original author of BadgeGen:
"Now, if you achieve two (or more) times the Diamond requirement for most badges, BadgeGen will now show a small integer "sticker" on the output badge."
Other changes the last month:
- Quick search - We added a quick search in the menu for our paying members. It's still a work in progress, but for those who prefer a keyboard over a mouse, it will make the site much easier to navigate. Currently it searches within menus and challenge checkers. We still have some adjustments to do for mobile.
- Rewriting core code - We have rewritten a lot of core code. Things that (hopefully) don't change anything for the end-user, but makes our life easier. Together with this we have also optimzied our code, both in database usage and for html rendering.
- New database server - A new database server was added to the infrastructure. For those that like the techy talk; It's a 2U server with E5-2667 and 128 GB ram. Currently only one of the cpu slots are used. The storage consists of two Intel 910 Series PCIe 800GB.
- Monitoring - We have added a lot more data into our monitoring system and with that we hope that we can prevent more instability before it actually happens.
- Map layers - When you view a map at Project-GC, you can change which map layer you want to use. We used to only have 3 different layers, now there are plenty more.
- Discover trackables - Paying members are now prioritized in our tool for batch discovering trackables.
- Migrated server - A server with some hardware and stability issues was migrated into three different virtual machines instead. More stable site, and cleaner installations. At the same time we also upgraded our full text search indexing software, several major versions. Quite a lot of code needed to be rewritten for this.
- Showroom - When one visits Project-GC without being logged in, the landing page is now a showroom/slideshow of screenshots taken from Project-GC. We hope this will get a better picture of what the site can do.
- API changes - Adjusted to new API changes from Groundspeak.
- Challenge checker map - The challenge checker map can now be filtered on fulfilled/not fulfilled as well. The map itself is for paying members only.
- Virtual GPS - The CSV download from the Virtual GPS system has been improved a lot. All columns of data are now added into the CSV.
The VGPS system is like a shopping cart for geocaches, for our paying members. Almost anywhere you are on the site you can cherry pick geocaches and add into lists. The ultimate tool for planning your geocaching trips.
We have two (quite long) videos showing how it works The newest one is in Swedish and can be found here. The other shows our old VGPS system. The procedure is the same, but the look differs a lot, this one is in English, and can be seen here.
- Edited logs notifiers - Finally fixed issues where the Edited logs notifiers didn't show all the relevant geocache data.
Edited logs notifiers is also for our paying members only. You can subscribe to get email once someone edits their log of a geocache that you own.
Overall, most of the last 1-2 months has been spent on rewriting and optimizing the site, but we have still managed to squeeze in a few new features here and there.
It's not about the number you've found.
It's about the fun you had along the way.
The only numbers that matter are the friends you make!
It's all about the journey, the challenge, and enjoying the outdoors!
A week ago we mentioned on Facebook and Twitter that we had a pre-release of a new map engine at Project-GC. Something we call Live map. It's still far from complete and we have flagged it as beta. The reason that we have created it and released it early is due to the Road Trip `15 that Groundspeak accounced a while back. For those that have missed it, you can earn 6 different souvenirs by doing certain tasks during the summer.
You have until September the 2nd to finish the tasks, but they all start on different dates. The first one started last weekend, and the mission was to log a geocache which had at least 10 favorite points. The second task starts next weekend and the mission then is to attend an event (standard, mega or giga).
So, what is so great with this live map? It pretty much works exactly like the map at Geocaching.com, but we have added more filters to it, and during the summer we will have special filters for the Road Trip `15. So by just a few clicks, you can see all geocaches around where you live that helps you completing the tasks.
Besides the extra filters we of course also have our standard map icons. Some of the extra features are for our paying members only, like the Virtual GPS support, showing corrected coordinates, cache notes and so on. Also some of the filters (not the roadtrip-filters) are limited to paying members.
The Live map can be found in the menus under Tools / Maps, or by using the URL http://project-gc.com/Tools/LiveMap.

Parece-me mais provável acontecer ao contrário...

Sobra à GS os reviewers e os lackeys. Grande parte da regulação que eles fazem pode ser feita de forma automatizada. Depois seria criar processos auto-regulatórios baseados nos utilizadores...

PS.: Ranking 2015 até agora.
Suponho que seja informação que esteja a ser devolvida pela API mas que o IAAN não tem. Também não encontrei nenhuma macro GSAK que actualize este atributo.
Nas caches publicadas em 2017 temos as seguintes (GC6WK48, GC70AXV, GC7471W, GC74K6H, GC77411 e GC78BKN) das quais uma não está arquivada mas apenas em reformulação.
