Regular member "3 caches" limit, caching the already seen 1-3 caches

Question

Great appli, well programmed!

The 3-caches limit for the regular members (people not paying the yearly Groundspeak fees) is insanely low, and there is nothing you can do about that.

However, it is not normal behavior to count the same cache twice if it's visited twice within the last 24 hours.

  • Viewing full description of cache X
  • 15 minutes later, going back to view cache X counts it again! (and could be blocked if 3 caches have been seen in total)

Of course Groundspeak could implement that easily ("if cache X was part of the visited ones in the last 24h, don't count it again"), but that's unlikely (I've been a GC for many years, and it seems GS is becoming more and more money oriented).

Cachly could simply cache (the computer science term) the last full description of a number of caches, or the caches seen within the last 24 h.
Thus Cachly wouldn't have to do a request to the server when a description has already been downloaded recently.

Ooops it seems the caching actually works! Yesterday was my first Cachly day, I probably made a confusion between two caches.

Cachly is even greater than I thought :-)
Sorry for the trouble.

Since I'm here there is something I find annoying - but that could be only me...

When refreshing the Caches on the map (the rounded arrow), the map is zoomed out.
I find this inconvenient, because then have to zoom in again where I was before the refresh while actually, I just wanted the area to be refreshed.

If you go to Settings in the More tab you can change this. Just turn off the "Fit to map" option. :)
