Site Update May 8, 2019

Post by Corfman Clan »

Hi,

I have just updated LonelyCache with the following changes, most of which are to better conform with the API partner agreement between LonelyCache and Geocaching HQ:
  • A Terms of Use Agreement and a Privacy Policy has been added. Links to each are at the bottom of each page, along with links to them when registering an account on LonelyCache.
  • On Geocache pages, the list of finders will only be shown for premium members. The first time you visit a Geocache Page for your current visit, one of two messages will be shown depending on if you're signed in or not a premium member.
  • On Geocacher pages, if you're not signed in, only the geocacher's summary will be shown. If you want to see that geocacher's leader board/stats, then you'll need to sign into LonelyCache. The first time on your visit, a message will be shown suggesting you sign in to see more. Also, the link to see the geocacher on geocaching.com is only made available to premium members.
  • The way a basic member's recent finds are added to LonelyCache has been changed due to limitations basic members have accessing the API. Now, all recent finds should be added to LonelyCache whether those finds are for premium caches or not, however the cache information and any other finds that have occurred for that cache will not be added as is done for premium members.
Enjoy,
Russell
