The past few weeks have come with a few announcements from Geocaching.com.
No More HTML in Geocache Logs
On February 2, 2016 geocaching.com will be switching from HTML and UBB to Markdown for geocache logs. It is said that the advantage of this is that Markdown looks the same regardless of what device you use. There will be a window to preview your logs and an editor tool similar to word processor programs or email. If you have any logs that utilize HTML, they will no longer display correctly after February 2nd. If you really care you’ll have to go back in and edit these logs to make them display properly. It seems that moving to Markdown will make enhancing your logs a bit easier.
Two New Souvenirs for Leap Day
Last Thursday geocaching.com announced to Premium Members, and today to everyone, that there will be two souvenirs for this year’s Leap Day. The first souvenir can be earned by finding any geocache between February 27-29. The second souvenir can only be earned by attending an event on Leap Day itself, February 29th. Geocaching.com dropped a hint saying “you’ll want to earn both of these…” I have already published an event (GC69B3Z) for Leap Day and plan to put out some fun, surprising new caches for the event.
