I've managed to fix the cache alerts but...
They will not be every hour, 1 time a day an email will go out with the newest in BC.

The new method has a lot of catching up to do on the caches, so you'll see a large alert coming out every day for a week. They are based on time frame when the cache was created, as such many caches that never made it into our data are now being added.

Search will be turned on again in a week or so.

So . . . that would be a bit of a pre Blitz Blitz! I got an email with 385 (no posted location on purpose). We'll need to watch for the Blitz caches!

Is this why I've been getting approx 125 tweets a day from BCGA about "new" caches, that actually aren't new at all?

Well, go back and read the email that contains the alerts, near the top. Also, at the post at the top of this thread.

Sorry CB, I wasn't complaining, I was simply asking if its the same reason for the tweets. I don't subscribe to the email notifications. A couple of the cache links I clicked through on were from 2007.

The incoming data was changed from an area based query, to a date range query, and we started to pick up a lot of caches that fell between the cracks. It should be through the cycle by Monday, and only new caches will show up after that, usually at 5AM(ish). Tweets come from the same script.
