The tool "360 from home" generates error message when set to zero

When the slider at the top of the tool page is set to zero it generates an error message: "Failed to get overview data", which makes perfect sense. It is easy to end up in this situation when you have been exploring the possibilities for more loops on the badge.

But it would be a tad more user friendly if the slider started at 1....

The minimum seems to be dynamic.
I've filled the 360 tool 10 times so 10 is the lowest I can choose in the tool
(range: 10-99).

The purpose of the 360 from home tool is to show you what sectors you still need to fill in order to complete the next loop.  Starting from 0 serves no purpose other than to show a beginning of a timeline.  Setting it to 1 means you are looking for caches to fill in all the 360 degree sectors for the first time.

After starting the tool, the overview did the same thing when I moved the sliding bar to 0.  It didn't concern me because I am working on my first loop and have it set to 1.  Every time I start the tool it always starts me at 1 and I have to actually move the slider manually to set it to 0.

A fix has been made in the development environment now. We still let the slider start at zero, if wished for. We just fixed the ajax call to get overview data.

Sounds like a good solution. Thank you :)
