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.

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?

Challenge Checker is the No. 1 for me.

For me it's the challenge checker tool, the variety of statistic, the possibility to find caches in choosen countries by hidden months (with the filters) and of course the great statistic overview (profile stats).

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.

My favorite is the DT Matrix, BadgeGen updates all by itself and maps.

Project-gc is overall a very good job

I love the stats. It is difficult to choose the best. Now frequently watch Top fouhd percent, challege checker and found missing cache to improve BadgeGen or meet the challenge.

As I am trying to color the world green the maps are my favourite. It is a way to show: Hænningsen was here :)

Profile stats are most important for me. I check them regularly.

Also challenge checkers and some statistics are usefull from time to time.

The Live map is my favorit thing. Among many other features. :)

It started off as;-
1) Profile statistics - which made it easy to prove/disprove whether I'd qualified for a lot of challenges..... but then mutated into....
2) Challenge checkers which covered some challenges I really didn't want to manually check!.... and then I found....
3) Trackable logging.... which saved a lot of time too so I used it to explore....
4) The new TB rescue centre, already rescued one for someone!

Slowly getting to grips with other stuff on the site, but thats how my GCprofile has evolved.

Besides the obvious (great stats, map compare, etc.) I've taken a whole new liking to the Virtual GPS and the now ease of use while using the " + Project-GC" Tampermonkey Script.  Managing my GPX files now is so much easier.  

I also really enjoy using the PGC dashboard now as a launching pad for all things Geocaching.  yes

Virtual GPS and any map function.

When I travel to a place I'm not familiar with, it is so much easier to get a good overview with a map. Especially when used with functions such as missing county or region or finding caches I need to complete another round on the D/T matrix. Very useful!

PQ:s are good too, but mainly for other purposes.

Die BadgeGen, die Werkzeuge (Challenge-Checker) (Karte der Challenge-Caches) (Live-Karte) (Karte - D/T-Matrix) und vieles mehr.

Aber mein Fafo ist Community Support

I like many of the functions that PGC provides, but to me what sets it apart is the way the admins/developers listen to the users and are willing to update and improve the site accordingly. Recent examples are the provision of English (UK) as a language, and resolving the UK counties issue. I feel that I can contribute to this forum and be listened to, whereas complaints on other websites make me feel like I'm just banging my head against the wall.

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.
