Post Allocating dZ points more than once
I click a little bit too early and instead of allocating all the points I could, I only allocated 0.5 points. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Is there anywhere to go and add some more points? It doesn't appear in the list for caches to have pointed allocated against.

No, sorry. Once you make your choice you live with your choice even if your choice was not your choice.

I was thinking you could leave open the ability to assign points for the week after the find. What ever it ends up on after the week, it would get locked at that.

But then again, no biggie. It was a noob click by me on a mobile device. Lucky :minotaur are still in control!

The ability to assign points is there for 7 days after the date of the find. However, once you make a choice about a value to apply, your choice cannot be changed. It's done like this for a reason.

You have 50 points to allocated.
You decide to allocate 10 points to 5 caches which controls them all.
Someone else logs a cache and allocates 1 point which controls the cache for their clan.
You decide to change your allocations to two caches, allocating 8 to one and 12 to another to "win control back" of the cache.
They do the same thing.
You end up going backwards and forwards over who will control what.

The decision was that you get to apply the points once and once only. You make a strategic decision to allocate points and then the activity closes. There is no second try. There is no changing or tweaking to gain control after you make your decision. You make the decision and you live with the consequence.

In your case you have misallocated by not allocating the correct number, but the site doesn't know this. It simple enforces the rule that you allocated some points and the deal is complete. For all the site knows, 0.5 would have controlled the cache and now you're deciding that more should be allocated. I know that's not the story, but thems the breaks.

Sometimes in life you cannot undo what you have done. This is one of those situations where you've made your bed and you get to lie in it :-)

Agree that only allocating the points make it alot simpler and somewhat more strategic. Otherwise, it might get a bit mad with two cachers, allocating and unallocating points right up until the deadline....
