I just wanted to say a public and massive "thanks" to ganja1447 and everyone else who makes this site such a fantastic resource.

I was looking down the list of requests and other feedback (which are all intended as constructive, incluing mine smiley ) and suddenly remembered how hard it can be to be on the receiving end of a constant flow of "constructive criticism", particularly when you are putting so much into it.  This site is excellent and is really adding to my enjoyment of geocaching (OK, I was already hooked....)! 

Thanks for being so responsive and working so hard at it - it's really appreciated.

Couldn't agree more!

I have been a user of the PGC site for a couple of years and a paying member for a little over a year.  Even at that, it wasn't until recently that I really slowed down and started to explore all of the features available.  Now I'm hooked.

It takes a lot of hard work to setup and maintain a system like this and for that I personally am very thankful.

Keep up the great work.

PGC I love is simple and clear. It is suitable for everyday use. For detailed and specific searches I use GSAK. Thank you for the PGC, it is a good project and saves a lot of time.

I totally agree and would like to thank ganja1447 and the whole rest of the team and all the other folks that support the site and the users with power, time and help. I hope you still have the time to go out and search some caches. :-)

I also want to say thank you very much for this fantastic website! I love statistics and I also use the tools a lot which you offer on your site.
I wonder whether you do all this development and maintenance in your spare time or has this become your main profession in the meantime?

As a developer of freeware software myself (Family History software) I know how valuable positive feedback like this can be, as it is surprising how critical some users can be of something they haven't actually paid for.

As a stats geek having such a wealth of stats at my fingertips is also great and I subscribed straight away and am encouraging my caching friends to do the same. Even the ones that don't think they are into stats have found uses for the site in planning trips etc.

I wish you well and if I can assist with any development issues I'd be happy to lend a hand.

I first started using PGC about a year ago. It has since become invaluable to me. The stats are great for creating goals and comparing your caching achievements with other geocachers. PGC has become one of my favourite geocaching resources.

I agree, it's a great tool and offers lot of features that don't and in my opinion should for long time already (at least for premium members).

But (again in my own opinion) some stats disseminated between geocachers start competition between them and in many cases there is lot of new geocaches placed without any sence just for to have any cache because of numbers. Before that geocaches bring me to nice places or places that are known only for people that lives there. Yes I know that is still true but how many other caches is at ugly places (in SVK we call it geocaches at pis*ed drainpipes laugh)

I stumbled upon the page shortly after I started geocaching.

Then, I used it mainly for the stats banner and multiple TB logging.

But since I've worked more with PGC, I decided to opt for the premium feature, and I'm absolutely delighted about it. It gives me all the features I'm missing from Detailed stats, a great live map, enhanced filters, and much more. Thanks!
