Why is it my milestones don't show up on the list... I have changed the variant from 500's to 100's but it seems everyone else's show up on the day they get each 100 and mine are never there...

Am I missing something?

We only show the most recent 200 people to reach a milestone. Your last tagged milestone was @ 700, before we switched from every 100 to every 500. Your 700th was on 2009-05-30 , where the top 200th seems to cut off near the end of august.

You will soon be @ 1000, and your name will show up on side scroll as well as on the full page listing.

PS...
it can take up to 5 days for us to pick up new numbers, it is not immediate.

I hit 200 a while ago now, it still hasn't shown up in the milestones. It doesn't matter much. Does your user name on gc.com and here have to be the exact same? Cause if the answer is yes, then that's the case for me.

We only go by 500's. So many cachers hit 100 marks that they only showed up on the list for a day or two.

We don't know if anyone else has had this happen. But, we seemed to have disappeared off of the BCGA site. We aren't showing up in the rankings or the milestones list. We hit our 2,000 cache on Dec 19 and have been waiting for it to appear on the milestones. Scruffster is aware and apparently there is a clitch in the web site due to the changing of the web site. If others are in the same situation you may want to let the techies know.

Hmmmm. I personally added them again. I expected them to come up. Sorry about that.

Thanks Scruffster, we are being patient but are curious if others are in the same boat. Present Do we need to give you a bit of a gift? Jester

There were in twice, and marked as 'not in bc' for one of them, hence not showing up.

90% of the cachers are manually reviewed when they first show up in a log, as to if they are a BC resident or Not. (best guess based on where there first caches are).

Sometimes the wrong button gets clicked.

You are showing up now.

Thanks CBacon, I just was trying to bribe Scruffster, so now I don't need to. Aren't computers wonderful things!

Well. Thwarted once again......

Finally got my 1000 mid-January and still no milestone... I guess I don't exist.

Is there something about my account that might be making me not appear in BC?

Yes, I remember you mentioneing that before. It has however been about 16 days now and I have noticed several other cachers milestones posted that reached their goals AFTER I had.

Although it is not a big deal, I would just like to clear up WHY it is happening moreso than the fact that it is not happening.

There is a human element to catagorizing cachers (BC Resident , Non Resident) etc. Sometimes cachers are incorrectly assesed, or the wrong button is pressed. You were set as 'not tracked' for some reason. It has been corrected, and you're on the list.

I have been away and hoped that when I returned that my 1000th cache milestone would have appeared. I still can not see it and I did my 1000th back on January 10th.

Hi Phil, I checked the milestone list and you are currently #20 on the list as of Jan. 13 for your 1,000th find. Congrats on the milestone!
