[Awaiting feedback] Problem with the checker for GC38GBN

[Awaiting feedback] Problem with the checker for GC38GBN
August 02, 2020 04:15PM
This is a grandfathered challenge for which a checker exists. When I run it, the checker tells me that I am missing a cache whose title begins with the number 6. I have at least one such cache in my found list, which I found in order to be able to claim the find for this challenge.

The checker also failed to recognize that I have an earlier find on a cache whose CO’s name begins with the number 0. It is instead recognizing another cache that I found much later and days after I had claimed the find on the challenge (I had to submit a list of finds in order to claim it instead.

Can anything be done to fix this checker? I wonder how many people have been told incorrectly that they don’t meet the challenge’s qualifications when they might have already qualified.

Reading the code for the script and the configuration for the checker reveals that the cache must be placed before 2012-01-15 and the cache owner must have joined before 2012-01-15. Maybe the qualification for the challenge cache changed since it launched initially?

Thanks!!

I did notice that both checkers still allow for a person to have one of their own caches which they later claimed for a find as a qualifier. The challenge excludes caches one has ever owned from qualifying. This is a minor issue if the CO doesn’t care, but it is a flaw in the checker.

Thanks again for all that you do!
