    Geocoding Issue

    Prefer not to see ads?

    Hey, I just tried to post a new thread in the Find or Advertise Games in Your Area forum and kept getting a Geocoding Address error. Has anyone else experienced the same issue?

    I know the address I'm using is correct because I tested it using the Google Geocoding API!

    Thanks.

    I'll hold off till I see if anyone else is having an issue, before I bug him. I'd rather give him a list of everyone's issue rather than hit him willy nilly with issues!

    I'm running into the same thing. At least it isn't me.

    A valid address is required for all games which are not marked as "online." The address you entered could not be geocoded. Please hit the back button in your browser and try changing the address entered.

    I'm having the same problem. Can't even search for nearby gamers as my latitude and longitude cannot be determined by my address.

    Hmmm, wonder if it is an issue that is actually coming from something at google?

    cplmac, well, per my second sentence in my original post, I went to Google's API and tested the address and it worked there. So it makes me wonder if there's something not being passed or maybe received from the API.

    i say time to bug farcaster. that's an important functionality of our site, if not one of the biggest reasons people come here.

    (sad as that may speak of our communities current status. =P )

    just tried to post a game, listed it as online because no matter what address I used it didn't take, using 3810 federal blvd Denver Colorado (the 711) and tried many others

    Only reason I asked was that we were having issues at the fire department with the computers. Our resident computer guy swithced them from using Google Chrome to Firefox and have had no problem since. Apparently there was some type of a compatability issue, but then, that is why he is the computer guy and I am the financial guy. I stopped many years (at least 10) ago to try and keep up with the changes with computer stuff like that.

    Great suggestion, but unfortunately, doesn't fix the problem. I actually use Firefox most of the time. Also tried to post the game using Chrome and IE, but no luck!
