Here are some Frequently Asked Questions from the reviewers who initially tested out the system. I will add to this list as we get more questions. If you have a question make sure to read through this list as it may already have been answered.
How do I get to the bookmark lists?
You can start your first one by clicking on the bookmark link on any cache listing. You can also access your listing from your "my account" page. The link is below the Pocket Query link.
Once you create a list you can add additional waypoints from the Bookmark List page. You'll have to find the GC code from the cache listings to do this.
What is the limit for bookmark lists or bookmarks?
You can have up to 10 bookmark lists. On each bookmark list you can currently have up to 100 bookmarks. We'll monitor the use of the bookmarks to see if we can up that count in the future.
Does the geocacher get notified when I bookmark their listing?
What is the difference between a watchlist and a watched bookmark list?
There isn't much of a difference, and the watchlist will be incorporated into the bookmark lists as a "special" list that is not visible by others. The difference now is that there is no limit on a watchlist though there is one for a bookmark list. This will be the same when the watchlist becomes a bookmark list.
Bookmark lists have a feature to watch or not watch that one list. And yes, you will get notified when those items are logged if you choose to watch the list. You can also toggle them if, say, you go on vacation.
What is a Shared list?
If you exchange the URL of the list with someone else they can see it. This is the URL when you are viewing the contents of the Bookmark List. We'll see if we can make the link shorter.
How do I find Shared Lists?
Unless you have a URL you cannot see a shared list (yet). However, we will be adding functionality to show shared lists on a cache listing so you know someone bookmarked it for whatever reason. Also we will add a tab on the profile page so you can see a user's shared list.
We had to stop implementation somewhere. so these features haven't been added (yet).
Can non-Premium Members see shared lists?
Yes. They will need to be logged in but they can see them.
What is an Ignore List?
It is a list of items you want to ignore on your search results and pocket queries. When you filter your hides and finds on the advanced search page it will filter them out from the results. You will still see them on standard searches.
Can I use the Ignore List with Pocket Queries?
Yes. It will be an option on all Pocket Queries.
Can anyone see my ignore list?
No. Only you can see it. By default it is a list that cannot be shared.
Can I create a Pocket Query of bookmark lists?
Yes. We will be adding that functionality in the future when we implement Attribute searches. This is currently not a feature, however.
When you choose to ignore a listing that you're also watching, will you still get log notifications via email?
Yes. They are two independent features so you'd still get emails for caches on your watch lists, but the listing will not show up on your search results or pocket queries (if you choose to filter them).
Can you add an "add to list" button on the search results page?
This is a great idea for adding "todo list" items and I'm looking into an implementation of this feature.
