Hello, 

I think that this feature do not capture original log type correctly. I'm using it for a long time, but I don't remember if I've ever seen indication of changed type of log - it always says "Found it Found it" or "Write note Write note", even when player has changed the type of his log.

This is example, where I know 100% that player has changed Found it to Write note, because I asked him to do so. Project-GC is notifying me about Write note to Write note. Unfortunately, it seems to me that most important part of this feature does not work.

Can anyone verify and confirm, please? Is it possible to fix it?

Thank you.

This is not Write note to Write note. The first "Write note" is an image icon description and part of the broken image icon next to it. You confirm it by checking the source HTML. The image source -- it is indeed wrongly pointing to something like

https://www.geocaching.com/images/logtypes/https://www.geocaching.com/images/logtypes/4.png.png

where it should say just

https://www.geocaching.com/images/logtypes/4.png

This is indeed an error.

Project-GC knows only the new log type and content since it is not storing the whole information about the logs (at least it was not some time ago when I was asking similar question), probably just some checksum.

Oh, thank you for explanation!
It's quite funny for how long I was reading notifications wrongly.
Its quite sad that this is broken since the beginning I am receiving these emails and nobody noticed or reported.
Jakuje is 100% correct in his explanation. I have noticed the broken images myself, but only when not working, and then forgotten about it again. We haven't received any bug reports about it, therefore it hasn't been fixed. I'll make a fix today, which will be released in the coming days.
