How to search for users on Geocaching.com (Trick/Hint)

Postby GizmoGuy411 » Mon 2009-06-08, 11:20:18

The recently added "Manage Friends" page on geocaching.com allows you to search out user names using a partial name of a user.

http://www.geocaching.com/account/managefriends.aspx

Just enter the first part of a user's name, and a drop box box will appear momentarily for a few seconds with all the possible matches.

So put in your own caching name and see how many others are similar!

This "Hint" was added with Edit 36 to the "Geocaching Shortcuts and Hints" document.
