Feature request: Add option to filter disabled caches from live map

+1 vote
I may be blind but I couldn't see any way to filter out disabled caches from showing on the Live Map. If this isn't implemented yet can I request it is. If it is implemented could someone explain the mechanism please.

Yes! I definitely would like this feature. Additionally, I would like a way to filter out disabled/archived caches from the wildcard search. For instance, if I want to find all the caches in Florida that begin with the number 1, I would put in {Florida 1*} and this would return more than 500 results, half of which end up being archived/disabled. If I could refine my search to only active caches, I would be more likely to receive the full list of caches (i.e. the results would be under 500 caches).

It is on our todo-list.

Is the todo-list published anywhere?
Not completely. Some of the bigger ones are listed when you click the I on the left panel. Some things there are already released. The problem with publishing such lists, we then have yet another place to maintain.

Expected a new version of the LiveMaps in the weekend, hopefully with an updated list there. I can not promise that the disabled filter will be there though. It's not of the highest priority.
Ok, I requested this feature over a year ago. It is the single biggest thing on the site that is lacking, in my opinion. Is this any closer to a reality yet?
This has been implemented in our development environment today. Yes, we know we have taken a lot of time to implement it.
That is very exciting news! In my opinion this will dramatically increase the usability of this site for me.
