A fix has been applied. Please visit the research task page again. You will need to do this tonight as the tasks refresh tomorrow.

By the way please include as much detail as you know to help solve the problem. eg the name of tasks and what caches you think qualify. Without basic information I don't know what the task is or what you see as qualifying.

Thank you. Just checked and no change yet? It was a level 5 task to publish a valid dragonzone cache, size large. GA13992.

Pleas try again. I can see the cache meets the criteria and have made another small fix which should address the issue. You've also been provided with some dZ Points as a bug catcher and some research materials as thanks.

Can you please let me know if a problem with Level 5 research tasks as I am holding off logging other finds from yesterday as they will fill a lower challenge first when all combined?

Please check your tasks and see if this is rewarded now.

Unless I'm bored, my weekends don't include checking the forum.

Just wondering how you search for the older caches. I have a research task to find a cache older than 10years or thereabouts but have no idea how to work that out.

Don't forget you will get different tasks tomorrow, so will need to research something else.

Just a query.
Tasks:
Find and log 5 Night Cache geocaches on the same day
Find and log 5 Night Cache geocaches

If the task doesn't mention 'on the same day' does that mean it can be done over a few days and just claimed after the last cache is found?
(Not that either could be done here in WA at present.)

If the research task is not time restricted then the logs can be for any days between the Wednesday the task is created to the following Tuesday night (before the new task kicks in on Wednesday AEST). Your task must also be claimed before the new tasks are assigned on Wednesday.

To answer the next question. If these were your tasks and you found 5 on the same day (for the first task), then you would also meet the 2nd task. You can stack the caches.

To elaborate, if I have a find a large and find a night cache and I happened across a night cache that was large, the same geocache would satisfy BOTH tasks and I get both research materials.

As another example if I had find 2 mystery caches AND find 5 mystery caches and I found 5 mystery caches during that research task week, then you will get both research materials.

Hi. I'm just wondering what is 'Icon Hat' and 'Icon Facade' in the Deploy section of My dragonZone?

I've only had one person guess that it might be related to the research tasks. I can't find anything written about it in this thread or anywhere dZ so far.
