"Solved Puzzles" not updating properly. What did I do wrong?

0 votes
48 views
I checked my list of Solved Puzzles and found many that were Archived and showing on the list. I went to each Archived cache page, removed all personal notes and reset the corrected coordinates to the original coordinates.

Now, two days later, I checked my list of Solved Puzzles and found the Archived caches still on the list. It says the list was parsed 12/4/2019.

I checked a couple of the archived cache pages. There are no notes and no corrected coordinates.

What am I doing wrong?

The "corrected coordinates" field at Geocaching.com (the edit coordinates) is only automatically refreshed once per month as Project-GC works right now. We will discuss a better routine with HQ for this.

The reason is that some users have a 6 digit amount of corrected, and we can only refresh corrected by fetching them all. This takes a lot of time. If we could fetch those updated since last time we checked, it would be much faster.

You can however trigger it manually. Either by using Self-support or by building a GPX file in Virtual GPS and selecting the proper update-settings.

Thank you for your answer. Now I know it is a monthly update and not a daily update.
I will work with the Self-support and Virtual GPS. I haven't used either. It's time for me to learn.
I could have mentioned that the Cache notes are updated more often. I believe it's daily on those. Because on those we do have an incremental method.

If both exists, the corrected overrides cache notes though.
