Thank you,

I suspect this challenge would not pass the reviewers.... the problem being "in the past 21 months". This is a form of time limiting and probably not allowed.

I do have a souvenir script with a number of options :

Configuration is as follows.... all of which are taken into account. If ANY single test fails, then the checker returns false.

"count": simple checker for total number of souvenirs.... no restrictions
"countries": required number of country souvenirs (please note... not all countries currently get souvenirs)
"regions": required number of region souvenirs (please note... not all regions currently get souvenirs)
"notcountriesorregion": required number of souvenirs that are NOT for region or country (includes everything else!)
"GIFF": required number of GIFF (Geocaching International Film Festival) souvenirs
"CITO": required number of CITO (Cache In Trash Out seasons/weeks) souvenirs
"WWFM": required number of WWFM (World Wide Flash Mob) souvenirs
"IED": required number of International Earthcache Day souvenirs
"IGD": required number of International Geocaching Day souvenirs
"GeoTour": required number of GeoTour souvenirs

"months": table of required souvenirs per individual month. eg "months": ["01-05", "02-02"] - 1 month (~30 days) with 5 souvenirs and 2 months with 2 souvenirs.

"monthspecifiedanyyear": table of required souvenirs per specified month, cumulative over any year. eg "monthspecifiedanyyear": ["01-05", "02-02"] - "01" = January with 5 souvenirs and February with 2 souvenirs. Souvenirs are cumulative over years so getting 4 in March 2017 and 1 in March 2018 = 5

"monthsanyyear": table of required souvenirs per month, cumlative of any year. eg "monthsanyyear": ["01-05", "02-02"] - "01" = Any 1 month (eg March) with 5 souvenirs and any 2 months with 2 souvenirs. Souvenirs are cumulative over years so getting 4 in March 2017 and 1 in March 2018 = 5

"years": table of required souvenirs per year. eg "years": ["01-05", "02-02"] - 1 year with 5 souvenirs and 2 years with 2 souvenirs.

Hi, how about 25 souvenirs in 21 different months?

Thank you, Muriël

GreyHams told you already
"I suspect this challenge would not pass the reviewers.... the problem being "in the past 21 months". This is a form of time limiting and probably not allowed. "

So please ask your local reviewer if he would publish

Hi, that's why I asked whether 25 souvenirs in maximum 21 different ̈months would be allowed. So not during the past 21 months but in maximum 21 different months.
With kind regards, Muriël

It would probably be OK, but it would definitely need a new script to be written (not just a new configuration of an existing script).

So.... assuming a reviewer gives it the OK.
- does 25 in a single month qualify?
- what about 24 in one month, and 1 more in a different month?
- does the cacher need to attain XX souvenirs in 21 different months?

Hi,

I see the problem.
Would this be possible: At least 25 souvenirs of which at least 21 are country or region souvenirs.

With kind regards,

Muriël (Kompas van Columbus)

Yes, that would be OK, it will require a small change to my script, but thats no problem

Hi, I receive the feedback: this checker script is disabled.
Can you please check what might be wrong?
Thank you

Thanks, it works perfect.
And also thanks for thinking along.
I have one additional question: do you know whether there is a way to find out which countries or regions have a souvenir?
With kind regards,
Muriël

Actually, it was already supported.

Here is your checker, can you please have a test and get back to us if you are hapy or not

This is supposed to be the 'definitive' list, though of course Project-GC seems to always be one step ahead.

I will keep checking it and adding to my script every few months
