This blog post is our monthly(-ish) newsletter style blog post. Cachetur.no has always been open, and to ensure that we stay open we want to use this newsletter to share information about what’s going on.

Recent changes

Since the previous As the Cache Turns, we’ve expanded the notes feature in the app. You can now add notes on all caches in the trip. If you upload the notes to cachetur.no, they will also be displayed both in the Post Trip Assistant and in the Task Answer feature. As usual, we’ve also fixed some bugs, and added new bugs to be fixed later. In addition to that, we also made the Cachetur Assistant and the app available in several new languages.

We have entered the “geocaching season”, which means that development slows down as geocaching take up much more of the time.

But our support is still as awesome as before, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or you need help.

The full changelog is available here.

Things we’re working on now

During the summer months, most of us are geocaching – just like other geocachers. So development slows down considerably. Summer means travel, which allows us to meet several of our awesome users – so don’t be afraid to say hello when you meet us at the next event!

A week ago, we attended the Vikingevent (Norwegian mega event) in Harstad, where we had a joint booth with GeoPod Norge (Norwegian geocaching podcast). We had a joint geocaching “social bingo”. This was a success, and we would be happy to work with GeoPod, or other geocaching related organizations, again. Thank you, GeoPod!

Vikingeventet

We are still doing stuff, and we are slowly working on improving the help center and other help resources.

Things we intend to work on soon

We have some minor things we have wanted to do for a long time, so we will mostly be doing minor adjustments and improvements over the next couple months.

We hope to be able to meet more of our users at events around the world, host more workshops and help more people learn how to get the most out of cachetur.no.

Upcoming events

Attending a cachetur.no event, class, talk etc. is a nice way to learn more about the site. Our wonderful ambassadors, and even some really cool users, will be attending several events during the next months.

Our economy

Running cachetur.no require a constant focus on our expenses, we want to provide you the best service we can, but we can’t consume more services than we are able to pay for.

Our economy looks good right now, but we still need continued support to keep operating. Thank you to all of you that have contributed!

Remember that all of us that work on this site (and app), including developer and all ambassadors, do this for free in our spare time. Cachetur.no does not pay anyone 🙂 Positive feedback is the only pay we get, so please, do give us the feedback you think we deserve.
