Just confirming...caches with no letters (only numbers) after the 'GC' have no way to be played correct? Maybe a number/letter substitution?

I'm noticing GC.com is issuing cache #'s with 5 digit (number only) alot more...obviously due to so many caches around the world I'll never find!

Yes, if your GC number contains only numbers after the GC has been removed, then it's not playable. In the same tone, if you have no numbers, then it's not playable as well.

I have just put out some hides with the hope that they'd count in the game, but all the letters are after K and are not playable Crying or Very sad Oh well, thems the chances ya take!

How do I retract any entry I made in error. I submitted a shot for a DNF and need to un-submit(?) it.

Geo-Indy. Done. I figured out which one you DNF'd on and deleted the entry for you.

Just a reminder for everyone, once a shot has been recorded, it is final.

However, if you submit a shot and realize that this was an error. (ie, you had a DNF and shouldn't have submitted that shot.) Please post the GC code and the date you logged the shot here and we'll make the correction for you.

I'm having problems submitting a few of the GC codes.

For example, GC1HV3W:

I get The GC code (GC1HV3W ) appears invalid. and no radio buttons are displayed.

Can we submit shots manually?

I looked into it and it seems you successfully submitted the cache 'GC1HV3W' for H3. Are you still having issues?

Hey there,

I was able to submit it. I noticed that if I copy/paste the GC code, then it doesn't go through, but if I type it in, then it works.

Thanks for the follow up!

You can paste it, but you need to activate the code with a keypress. So paste in the code, make sure there aren't any extras spaces before or after and hit some unnecessary key like an arrow and the code will trigger and activate the grid.

Quick question, we're heading to Grand Forks & caching there all day Saturday & coming back up Sunday through MN and eastern MB, will we still be able to log our hits Sunday night after we get home?
