Frequently Asked Questions


How can I find my stats on the DGP website?

If you have at least 20 finds and 200 ChallengePoints (CPs),
you will be rated at the DGP.

Rated cachers can find their stats page by typing their
caching name in the search box in the upper right of this page.

You may also use the search box to find caches,
either by cache name or by waypoint (GCxxxx).

Is there a site membership available at the DGP?

Yes. There is a free site membership available to interested cachers with 1,000 or more total CPs. Membership provides a more personalized stats browsing experience as well as access to a community discussion forum.

I have the CPs and I'm interested in becoming a DGP member.
What do I need to do?

Why isn't my find or hide dated after
Tuesday September 6, 2011
showing up at the DGP?

Caches hidden and finds dated after this date may not be reflected on the DGP website. This is not an error. While some of your other recent data may have been incorporated, there is no attempt at a complete database for all of the recent data. Additionally, finds are not necessarily incorporated in chronological order. For the latest find and cache information, please check geocaching.com.

What if finds or caches dated on or before
Tuesday September 6, 2011
haven't shown up at the DGP?

These finds/caches have been missed. The DGP strives to have accurate and complete data for caches hidden and finds logged on or before this date.
Please contact the site admin to report errors or omissions.

What does the DGP do about caches that are
unfindable due to lack of maintenance, or that have
incorrect logs at geocaching.com?

Nothing. If you are aware of an unfindable cache,
a mistaken or dishonest find log, or other such problems
on a geocaching.com cache page, resolution should be respectfully
attempted through the cache owner and/or the local reviewer.

How often are the site stats updated?

Update frequency ranges from daily to weekly.

Are any detailed maps available that show the region boundaries?

Yes, check this page for a beta version: Google Map Test
