I was wondering why on the recent logs when I or even a few others cachers I know cached outside of state It does not show up? (Only WI cache do)
I see that Zuma! cached in MN,and AuntieNae posted a note for a Ill Event.
Just curious...

I'm not the expert here, but I have been working on logging finds we made yesterday in the Twin Cities after a visit with my parents. I've actually logged
9 African Safari letterbox hybrids, but only 6 got picked up from the log harvester. I think it's kind of hit or miss with what it will gather and maybe your stuff just got in the "miss" pile?

If I remember correctly, the harvester needs to be able to "see" your GC.com profile, otherwise it just logs the "Wisconsin" caches.

to allow this; go to "my account", click on change info, and cut/paste your Geocaching.com profile link to your account (about halfway down the page).

If you have already done this and it doesn't harvest your out of state finds, I would have to defer to the squirrel

Oh, and T&B, it is kind of a hit/miss on some logs.

Still checking on that SG. Probably should have emailed you back, but I didn't have anything to report.

It appears that I did have my account linked to my profile,but it looks like it got cut short,and when I tried to re link it,it just looks the same.
example;
my Gc link is-
http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=1993cd90-bd7e-4b5a-ac9b-5e3a2668dddd
but in the paste box it comes up as-
http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=----

Yup! Odd that it wouldn't allow the entire thing.
did you manually enter it?

I do also see that your profile is linked as your website. I don't know if that could be influencing this or not.

After digging into this, it looks like there has been a hidden bug for quite a while. I have asked SG to try out a "fix".
