[Cancelled] GC2C4DQ - Cascadia Challenge (United States)
June 22, 2019 05:42AM
Hello. This challenge cache has a geographic requirement. I ran the checker to see if I qualify and noticed it was counting all my Caches, not just the ones within Cascadia. I wanted to see if all was in order.

I love the work y’all do. Please don’t take this note as criticism. Thanks for all the challenge checkers you write.

You are correct that the checker doesn't include the geographic requirement (and probably should be removed). However, creating a checker for this challenge is difficult for the following reasons:

1) The current checker looks for the words mentioned in the description. However, these are only a few of the many possible words that the CO might accept. Given that you can only use each word once, and only 24 possible words were provided, a much more comprehensive list would be needed for a checker.
2) Cascadia includes parts of regions (Alaska, California). So, someone would have to manually define the Cascadia region in order for the checker to work properly.
