Hey guys,

i found a interesting bug on my milestones: On November, the 18th, i found GCA227 1st Gibraltar als my 10000th find. The cache is listed correct as my 10000th found in my stats on geocaching.com

Same on my milestones tab on project gc, the cache ist listed as my 10000th found.

In the stats "First Cache per Country", the Cache is listed as found number 9999, so i dont know where the difference comes from.

You are correct. That ain't how it's supposed to be.

Since Locationless aren't included in the "First cache by country" calculations they were excluded from the selection criteria. We have now rewritten the code in our development environment to include them in the selection criteria, but correctly skip them from being applied to the list. That way the milestone count will be correct.

With the (fairly) new Locationless this has probably become a more common issue than before.

Your Profile stats should be correct upon the next release of the site.

ah thank you so much.
i would not have thought that locationless caches could be to blame, yes i have found the gc8fr0g.
