[Cancelled] Is a Checker possible?
July 22, 2016 12:30AM
Hello Everyone,

we want to create a Challenge-Cache with the condition, that you have traveled to five Countries in one day or twelve hours.

For Example:

We traveled to: Germany, Luxembourg, France, Belgium an the Netherlands in twelve hours.

Thanks for your help.

Such a challenge is no longer allowed. Only 1 find per Day is possible. A challenge where you have to visit 5 countries is possible but without any time restrictions.

Also, the twelve hour part would never have been able to be tested in a challenge checker, since the logs only have a date, not a time.

The maximum time to complete old in a day challenge is 50 hours There are timezones from +14 to -12
There are caches on +14 in Kiribati on Kiritimati There is still a FTF chance on it
But there is no geocaches in -12 on the uninhabited Howland and Baker Island.
and on -11 on American Samoa

So the max time is only 49 hours.

But i suspect most in a day challenges is easier to do where there are more caches/no need to fly between islands/countries

I still think this challenge is possible.
X countries in a day is not acceptable but x countries on the same date disregarding the year would be allowed.
A cacher would not be forced to cache all in one go but instead he can fulfill the challenge over the years.
as long it is on the same date.

I've read the new Guidelines for Challenge-Cache.

So if the Challenge based on one day, it is possible to create a Challenge to find the caches in five different countries, i guess.:S


9. Time-Limited: Maintaining a finds streak, at least one find per day, up to 365 days.

In you case it is not acceptable under
9. Time Limited -
Time-limited caching: as in some number of finds per day, week, month, or year. Example, Busy Day, 50 finds in a day, 500 finds in a month, etc. (new 2016)

Only a streak of 1 find per day for no more than 365 days is allowed with no conditions
