Adopted caches don't show up until a favorite point is added.

0 votes

I have adopted quite a few caches recently. They are a mix of Earthcaches, Unknowns and Traditionals. They show up under the main GC site fine. However, they don't show up on my profile on Project-GC until a fav point is added. I'm a paid member and one of the perks is to get notification when a fav point is added or removed. The other caches I've adopted that haven't had a fav point added since I adopted them don't show up in my profile on Project-GC. I have 307 hides but only 294 of them on my profile. 

Here's an example email of an EC that I adopted. All of the fav points showed up at once.

I would think that the caches appear on your profile when we refresh that cache rather than when a favorite point is added. A regular log should do the trick as well.

If you let me know which CO(s) you have adopted caches from that haven't appeared as yours yet, I can refresh them.

The CO is seeingitdifferent. If you look at my profile, the username shows as "Seeingitdifferent adopted by BigChiefS4" on the caches that I've adopted.

Here's one of the caches in question GC35CPM. I had a friend give it a fav point to see if it would update tonight at 10PM when the fav point update script runs. That's when I get emails notifying me if I have received any new fav points.
Another EC that I adopted, was logged yesterday. It hasn't shown up on my PGC profile yet, so it doesn't seem that a regular Found It log triggers any action.
I've started a refresh. It should be OK in a couple of hours.
Thanks, I can now see 298 of my 307 caches. The ones that don't show up are the Unknowns that I adopted.
