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 geocaching.com 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.

There are so many cool functions on Project-GC, so this question is not so easy to answer...

But I think, my most favorite thing about Project-GC is the profile stats. It makes me creating challenges for me, like completing this or that matrix, get another gemstone badge and so on. And of course I like very much that Project-GC helps me to find those caches that are necessary to fulfil these challenges...

Thanks a lot for all the possibilities this site offers!
I wonder whether programming and maintaining this site has become a full time job for you or do you do all this in your spare time?

Here are my top 3:

  1. Challenge-checkers
  2. Badge-gen: It is nice to be able check next target to get more point
  3. The main stat page - especially the 'Some numbers' section.
I would also like to congratulate Project-GC as I really like looking at my stats and I wait for the weekly stat update.

One of the many things I really enjoy about this website, is this q&a. Before I found it, there were questions that I couldn't find the answer to, now I can get answers from a range of different views, and people get rewarded for helping me.

I also like the Badge-Gen, which motivates you to go caching and achieve new badges. I like how there is a variety of Badges to achieve that will suit different geocachers.

Another cool feature is the Finders of my caches, in which I see who regularly finds my geocaches.

Project GC is still my favourite Geocaching resource.

Live map. Love the fact I can see final locations of solved mystery caches, especially when going to an area for the day to get some other caches or when doing a geo-art. I can print a map of the actual final locations and plan the road route I'm going to take.

I love this website.  I love that there is a way to log many TBs at once.  And the many statistics you can view.  Oh and of course the challenge checkers!

Project-GC is a genial addition for all geocachers. I like nearly all features. My favourites are the live map. the virtual gps and the County statistics (and map). I will Support this project anyway.

I tend to write: Everything! But to be honest, I have some favorite Tools, like the Profile Stats, the map Features (hidden date, D/T Matrix (with Type/size filter) and of course the challenge checkers are really useful.

My favorite is DT Matrix - using this tool, I could find missing combination in my matrix.

Many features are brilliant - but the one I have found most use currently is the 'needed found date' function with its filterable aspect has given me a variety of targets to aim for over the next year smiley

I check something on here atleast a couple of  times a week, so to sum it up; I think what I likes the most, is that as a primarily a phone geocacher, I don't have to bother with GSAK as project-gc offers most of what I would use GSAK for. :)
