DT Matrix, Badge Gen
Profile stats and challenge checkers!
all Features are brilliant :D
Would definitely have to be the bad logs....even though it's a rarely used tool....and it was broken for old logs (treating note logs as find logs, even messing up my find count in the profile stats) this tool makes sure you have an accurate find count on itself.
The Statistic and the challange checker ;)
The Stats and the TB discovering tool ;)
would have to be
1.Challenge Checkers
2. Statistics
3. Badge Gen ( I love using this to give me ideas on what my priorities might be)
Easy of use of Profile Statistics and also the challenge checkers. This saves so much time.

Profile - Needs Maintenance?

To name only one. But there are plenty of perfect features and they are constantly growing. Tremendous job done. Stats are nice to view, but not a core of GC. Thats why I picked tool, extremely useful of owners of many caches. This kind of tool should have been integrated in site long long time ago. You have done this job voluntarily on behalf of GroundSpeak, who often waste resources on "questionable" projects.

Thank you for making my hobby a lot of easier.

Indeed, this is THE tool for me as it should be for other big hidder.
Moreover, the tool to add in Virtual GPS is so easy that maintenance list is quick to do.

The extensive personal stats. No longer do I have to run a complex series of macros in GSAK.

I also like the lower bound of Wilson stats. A great way to compare caches

I have completely gone away from GSAK.  Although there is a lot that I am not using yet here, I use this site more and it is much easier to understand and to navigate through.  Thanks for creating Project GC!!
Great to have updated stats and the ability to find some personal challenges

Compare maps. My favourite, all categories! smiley

answered Sep 3, 2014 by tomastomas (710 points)
I can't favorite a single one. Obviously the stats. In combination with the tools they are awesome, like the hidden date map. And then of course the challenge checkers.
yes my opinion is the same :)

My favorite part so far (I still have a lot left to see) is the ability to quickly filter for caches in an area that will fill in a date placed box, a DT box, or a jasmer challenge box. It makes it a lot easier than running a ton of macros on GSAK or trying to find them myself on the normal website.

I can't pick just one--so I will pick three:

1) BadgeGen updates all by itself!

2) Stats displayed in very attractive format without having to run macros!

3) Maps, maps, maps!

The most favorite thing is, that PGC is crazy enough to offer answers to ALL my questions and needs. Even if I don't know them right now.... ;-)

Perfect site for the ones who loves stats

1. Challenge-checkers. Also fun to check the caches related to the checkers

2. Badge-gen. Great to check next target to get more points

3. The main stat page

4. D/T tools. So much better after the update so we can see loop 2 and so on

5. Check the stats in local areas

I like the Hidden month map most, it's so useful for checking when going to different countries. I also like the coming events tool too.

I love the new looks. It is much easier to use now. The thing that first got me to use the site, was of course the profile stats. Now I really love the maps, it encourages me to find caches in new areas. Makes travelling so much more exciting. I also like the fact that you actually listen to the users. I love to read the updates about what you are up to. The map compare has also been very useful when planning trips with friends. Thank you for this site!

The profile stats are the best ones you can get and some of the other features seem pretty cool even though I don't have a use for them.

My "Most favorite Tool" is the "close to the user tool"! :)

Why? .... You just have to write a comment, or requirement or even a wish and a) you get response, b) the response helps you (maybe just to understand, that something doesn't work) or c) you get an answer like "ok - it's on the list" ;)

I have many favorite items, but my top 5 at the moment is:

1. Badge Gnerator - to see my own challenges

2. Top image uploaders - we like to make pictures of the cache locations

3. Logs over time - to compaire the scores of our friends

4. Map D/T matrix - to find caches to fill our matrix

5. Map Counties - to check the local map for counties we have not cached yet.

but I am using of course many more features

All the stats! I love the sheer number of different stats that there are. BadgeGen is good too, as is the tool to 'discover' multiple TBs at once.

I love the statistics. It is more easy than GSAK and everythink works automatically. But I hope we can customize it more in the future! Ans I would love a function to implement banners.

ich finde die Werkzeuge zum auffinden der fehlenden Caches wie : versteckmonat , versteckdatum und der fehlenden caches in der matrix spitze.

ausserdem ist das werkzeug zum auffinden von schlechten ( doppellogs ) sehr praktisch


I find the tools to find the missing cache as: Hiding month, hiding date and find the missing caches in the matrix very good.
also the tool for finding of bad (double logs) is very convenient

Karten der Landkreise und die Möglichkeit innerhalb der Landkreise dann mögliche Caches zu suchen

Then look for maps of the counties and the opportunity within the counties possible caches

OK? Why downvote?

And the fact, that the project is fast developing with great new features and ideas.
