Post Spring Caching Carnival
Please, I don't understand:
Currently; GA12854 "Yellow Parasaurolophus" has two finds in a row yet it has been credited with a move to the USA
I thought that only moves were to be instrumental in the Spring Caching Carnival
How can someone make a find and a move at the same time?
Just interested in how this may occur
Cheers and thanks OldSaint

A log that has a set of co-ordinates is a candidate for a move. If the co-ordinates are different to the previous set of co-ordinates then it is considered a move.

There are two ways to move a moveable geocache.
Find the cache, log a find, then later when you rehide it, log a move.
Find the cache, rehide it, then log a find with a new set of co-ordinates.

You can also move a geocache with a noted if you don't want to increment your "pure" / "unique" geocache count by not logging a new find against it.

This has been the method since moveables were introduced in 2005.

Thanks caught at work, but my point with my post is that two finds by the same cacher on the cache [GA12854} were made within seven days on the 16th and 19th of Sept
The cacher can correct that by editing the log and change that to a move; not an issue
But the rule states that "There is no limit to the number of times a geocacher can find / move the Dinosaur Racer provided there are at least two other finds / moves in between."
This has not happened in this case:
I guess my question is can the race program pick this up; so that the rule is adhered to
Cheers and thanks OldSaint

The person who logged the find has obviously logged a find instead of a move as their previous log was a find so this one should be a find. If someone nicely wants to suggest to them that they change the find to a move, then so be it and that would clear up the confusion. I'm not going to penalise someone for a mistake. The decision of the game administrator is final.

Didn't want any penalty as I said it can be changed with a change in the cache log
Was more concerned that the program for the race wasn't picking up "two finds" in a row by the same cacher within seven days cheers
Will send a note and have it changed
Cheers OldSaint

Hi

Just as a suggestion to future movable games, can it be a condition that a move doesn't count for the game if hidden within say 50 metres of one of it's previous hiding spots. Just I see some caches simply being moved from one spot to another to another and back to the first spot and then repeat. I thought part of the design of movables is to move around the country side not just to visit certain hiding spots over and over again.

I think we have all been guilty of using a standard hiding spot, but maybe we need to broaden our horizons with our hides.

Sorry of this would cause a huge amount of programming. ](*,)
