I found a handful of moveables last week and noticed they had double points allocated by the previous finder. Is this part of the system glitch from last week or is it something I can get in on.

Different bug. It's really quite tricky to catch every change to a cache by way of a log. Not in this case, but logs get edited and changed and deleted and relogged. So the software tries to catch and "undo" those things which are being removed and then "redo" those which are being entered again. Not always completely successfully. In this case it looks like the system timed out, the transactions hadn't been completed so they were resubmitted and they ended up being allocated twice. They've all been fixed and you should now have credit for controlling GA6513. The additional points didn't matter to the others, you controlled them anyway.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention and I'll need to look at how these can be transactionised.

I was checking the zone control for the state and noticed something that doesn't seem to add up.

With Cockburn it show 4 caches split between Griffin(2) & Phoenix(2) but when I list the caches for the zone it shows 2 under Griffin control, 1 under Phoenix with another 4 not in any clan.

I cannot see a second Phoenix controlled cache in the list so wondered where the second cache is.

(BTW I seem to remember that only 3 caches had a clan attached before the latest logs were added to the two caches now controlled by Griffin.)

Archived caches are counted in the data for a zone control.

Is green and archived.

Any chance that archived caches will stop counting towards zone control? I notice that Bankstown (C) has 5 active caches in the zone, 2 x Griffin and 3 x Cerberus, but zone control is 6 x Griffin. Looks like the four archived caches are determining control of this one at the moment?

There is currently no plan to do that.

Is there any way to take control of an archived cache??? Not likely! Might have to develop a new strategy then. :twisted:

By finding it and logging points against it. By moving (assuming a movable) it into another zone. Under the assumption it's archived because it's gone, then you're out of luck.

Just logged TP5326 and noticed a spelling error. When I did the edit, the Battle Master points I got for claiming control of the cache dropped off! Any chance of a fix? Please?

When I place moveables into a zone and take control of that zone for my clan, should I get Conquerer points? Did this with Shellharbour, but doesn't look like the points allocated for it?

No. A conquest for the game is only on a find, not a move.

Just made a blue on TP6127 and had the Battle Master points fall off when I corrected the find date :( Any chance of fixing?

Try deleting your log, then relogging correctly.
