I have a question, so before the moratorium, I placed a challenge cache where you have to find a cache in 25 different parks around the county.
Now, I would like to do the exact same challenge for this time, make it for another county. However, the only problem is that the new guidelines require a checker. Would there be a way to either create the boundaries of each park, similar to the DeLorme Challenge Script (but the parks are not polygons), or a script where you create a list (that would be updated whenever a new cache would be published within a park) of all the caches in a particular park?
Does anyone have any advice, should I write a new script for the easier of the two options or is there already a script for something like this?
The parks would be able to be defined as polygons, so using the GenericPolyChecker script (which is used for most/all DeLorme challenges) is possible.
Your biggest issue in creating a new challenge of this type is the new guidelines. Guideline 10, for example, includes "Challenge cache criteria must come from information broadly available on Geocaching.com and must be verifiable through information on Geocaching.com.". There's no information on geocaching.com about whether or not a cache is in a park. You'll need to run the idea past a reviewer to see if it would be allowed, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.
