Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] protip for visualizing archived hides?
- I totally agree that this was a great feature. As a cache hider it was a good way to know where they were and if they worked or not. I once wrote to GC.com and asked them about this lost feature and they said (in part) that it was a matter of privacy and would not be available again in that old format.
So now I get notification when nearby caches are archived and I decide if that would be a good place or not to hide something new.
I hope that helps,

Back in the day (2005?) we used to be able to use the 'geocaching.com map' to visualize archived caches.Is there anything like this to date? I really miss that feature.It was a great way to remember history. Moreover it was superb method to quickly ID places that had a hide at one time but dont anymore. Finding old hides can give context, help in establishing new hides, etc.Now it seems the only way to get at archived hides is to have the exact GC ID. Meh.Curious. Thanks.-nickfiller & bcat
