Hi Sol,
Yep...read all that previously....but would like to know what the actual bonus multiples are in each case.
The 2 caches I found fall into the moderate category...both dz cache points were multiplied by 12, in my case????

There has been a deathly silence since my last post, which I find rather confusing given that I've tried to report a possible(likely) issue.
I now have 2 sets of figures to work with.

The new enhancements are...
A small bonus for finding a cache that your clan already CONTROLS.
A moderate bonus for finding a cache that your clan does NOT CONTROL.
A generous bonus for finding a cache that your clan did NOT CONTROL, but after your find your clan control, but after your find or publication your clan CONTROLS.*

Another geocacher(minotaur)....found caches already controlled by minotaur...SO going by the above A SMALL BONUS...that small bonus multiplied normal geocache points by 10.67??
In my own case(cerebus)...caches found which were controlled by minotaur would therefore attract a MODERATE BONUS....but that moderate bonus was 12 times normal geocache pts.

I sincerely doubt that the new changes would reflect the massive points increase that is now occuring????

Could someone from Admin PLEASE confirm one way or the other what the heck is going on and whether the current massive points increase is in fact VALID or a major glitch.

Many thanks in advance.

I will not publish the way in which points are calculated. The ways of the dragons are secretive and we are prone to grumpiness if pressed. All I can say is that the Master Dragon has checked the calculations and they are correct.

Hi administrators

I have in excess of one hundred eligible finds for December, but only 98 have counted for the Journey or Destination game. I only noticed when my last two logs didn't seem to gain any steps, then I checked my December finds and I'm probably five or six steps fewer than the number of eligible cache finds. Can you help please?

I'm much the same...
43 eligible finds (trads and moveables) along with one hide (regular sized trad). All have been logged. 37 steps taken, no steps available.

Not quite eligible. Eligible find caches are only those which were hidden prior to the game starting and you can't find any that you own. Please check every cache you think you are eligible for against the criteria and let us know if there are any specific caches that you believe are eligible that you don't have a step for.

I don't know why they did not trigger when you published the caches. I edited the log, changed the date, changed it back so it appears as a new publish log and the points have been awarded. They should now appear in your list.

Hi, I have noticed there have been a couple of logs on two of my caches that haven't had the Karma Points added to them. These are https://geocaching.com.au/cache/ga4589 and https://geocaching.com.au/cache/ga13671. Both have been logged at the end of April. Is there a chance when the Faeries have a spare second, please see if things are in order. Thanks heaps.

Think I just worked out why.
