TB discoveries - logs are encrypted

+2 votes
I used the TB discovery tool for around forty TBs. When I went to check the discoveries on the website, I noticed that all log entries are encrypted. I couldn't find any option to affect this. Is this a bug or how can I discover TBs with normal logs, not encrypted?

Yes, I also went and unchecked the encryption option for every single log manually. Very time consuming and I will not use the TB discovery tool again until the encryption issue is solved.
it's good, no problém now
project-gc find the solution, thank's a lot

??? It's Strange... I don't have this trouble... I've just tried and it's working correctly. Do you still have the problem?

The problem seems to have been solved. It works now and the logs are not encrypted anymore. Maybe Project-GC fixed a bug or there was some other API issue with for a little while.

It was a bug in the LIVE api actually. We notified Geocaching HQ yesterday and the bug was fixed quite promptly after that.

As soon as it came to our knowledge we added an alert on the Discover-page that warned our users about it. We only needed the warning there for 2-3 hours if I recall correctly.

In short, the issue is resolved, it was affecting all API partners.
